Happy Friday, December 29th! The fast paced, intense year has almost come to a close and here in The Night Club with Carman it’s time for the final Hot 8@8 Countdown for the year with Smoky’s House BBQ in Charleston. Now tonight we’re doing something a little bit different for the countdown…we’re reliving the biggest songs on the show for the entire year!
