If you've ever listened to US 104.9 on Sunday morning you may be surprised at the music you hear. It's an hour of original, and local country stars here in the Midwest. We have been so lucky to spotlight so many talented artists including our friend and QC native Monica Austin.

Now we here at US 104.9 and the Midwest Country Morning Show are proud to announce a whole new way to celebrate these local stars with the Midwest CMO Fall Tour!

Iowa Stingray Home

This home is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It holds two tanks, both around 300 gallons each. They both contain different types of stingrays. As for right now, this project is just for fun, though the owners do hope to someday breed these rays.

It's been about a 6-month process getting all the supplies, tanks, and stingrays.
