Sunday Driving with's Kris Daniels

I have known Kris Daniels long enough to have laughed, cried, fought, made up, cried, laughed, and loved always. Sounds like a country song, right.

With over 16 years experience as an On-Air Radio Personality, Kris is originally from Scottsdale, Arizona. She has three children and is happily married to the love of her life! If you didn't know already, Kris Daniels is the daughter of Country Music Radio Legend Larry Daniels.

Describing Krissy, well she loves to shop and is an amazing c
ook. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the family, if you can figure out a way to add poker to that she is heaven! What you might not know about this drop dead knockout woman is that she is actually a tomboy.

Currently she lives in Louisville Kentucky where she is the morning show of New Country Q103.1 and Music Director for  WQNU (NEW COUNTRY Q-103.1)/LOUISVILLE and Country WHKO(K99.1FM)/DAYTONOH. She is also co-creator of "your #1 resource for ALL things Country Music!"
