blake shelton ghets a big honor & martina mcbride's on Live with Kelly and Ryan

Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town is getting in the Christmas spirit this week and making candy with her mom and grandma. They make mom’s chocolate fudge and her grama’s old-fashioned potato candy with a peanut butter center.  

The cancer research program at Oklahoma University Children’s Hospital is being named after Blake Shelton. He donated $600,000 to the hospital two years ago in honor of his cousin, Aspen Van Horn. Her treatments there were successful and she turns three in January.  

Growing up, Brett Eldredge was weaned on Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. When he was 14, his mom bought him a big band karaoke CD and Brett said in no time he could sound exactly like a 50-year-old man straight out of a nightclub.  

Finally - Martina McBride will make a recipe from her new cookbook, Martina's Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life, today on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Her new cookbook includes lots of family favorites like Baked French Toast with Pecan Crumble and Blackberry Maple Syrup and Fresh Apple Cake with Homemade Caramel Sauce.
