KICKIN' COUNTRY has given away nearly $30,000 to ten local winners and the list keeps growing. Our most recent winner was Denise from Yankton! Denise is a traveling nurse and was working in Sioux Falls when she correctly identified The St. Patrick's Day Secret Sound as a spur and won $8,700!

On May 31, Kickin' Country came back with the new 'Funner Summer Secret Sound'. That jackpot started at $5,000. Tell your friends, that we're back with the cash! Win yours with The New 99-1 and 100.5, Kickin' Country!
