As we approach a new year on the calendar we wanted to take a look back. We've all been busy this year with work, school, our families and spending time online. We did some research and found the 11 most visited stories on K99.com this year. Here's a recap of the articles you looked at the most in 2011.
The NBA lockout had many sports fans across the country upset, and Good Morning Guy, Brian Gary wrote a letter to the NBA in this post.
Kevin Comeaux gave us a call at K99 before the Jason Aldean show at Cheyene Frontier Days and said he wanted to ask his girlfriend, Amanda Miller, to marry him at the Jason Aldean concert at Cheyenne Frontier Days! We were more than happy to oblige! We set it up so that she would be surprised. Brian and Todd made Amanda a contestant in the K99 Party Zone before the show.
The announcement of the 2012 Cheyenne Frontier Days night show lineup was very popular, and we can see why. Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and The Zac Brown Band will all be coming to Cheyenne next summer.

A video performance by Darius Rucker touched many hearts, and by the way this special performance was 'Music from the Heart.' It was so popular that we thought it was worth another watch or two. Enjoy.

Dave Jensen shared a moving music video in honor of Caylee Anthony. Gary LeVox from Rascal Flatts along with Cledus T. Judd and Jimmy Yeary from a radio station in Tampa have written a wonderful song for Caylee Anthony- the song is performed by Shane Hines. We think it's worth another listen or two.
Charley Barnes shared his opinion about the Supreme Court, and many shared and commented on his article about the Supreme Court voting in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church 8-1 to let them continue to picket military funerals due to their rights under the First Amendment.
One of the most interesting comments on the original blog that Charley Barnes posted came from none other than Nathan Phelps…one of the estranged children of Fred Phelps who left the family a long time ago. See what Fred says in this follow-up post.
Charley Barnes decided when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church months ago that I was going to make a trip to Topeka Kansas and express my right to free speech as well; on their doorstep.
