LET'S HOPE SHE HAD FREE WEEKEND MINUTES

At a recent Brooks & Dunn concert at the Casino Magic in Biloxi, Kix Brooks noticed that Lorie Ratcliffe was on her cell phone for the entire first three songs of their show. The Sun-Herald reported that Kix called Lorie up to the stage and asked who was so important on the other end of the phone. "I don't know what kind of cell phone plan you've got, but we're going to find out," he said. Turns out Lorie's 20-year-old nephew, Ash, was on the other end, calling from Baton Rouge. Ash was too young to attend the Casino concert, so Kix called him back, chatted with the stunned fan and then kept the phone onstage so he could hear the rest of the show. Capping off the entertaining evening was a performance of "Only In America," featuring Sgt. Jason Higginbotham of Ft. Myers, Fla.; Lance Cpl. Timothy Deas of Baton Rouge; and Sgt. Zone Poe of Martinsburg, West Va., marching onstage in full Marine dress blues and executing a synchronized salute while Brooks & Dunn sang the tune.
