    That Q&A with Ray Benson was entertaining. I haven’t delved into Jazz much, but Benson mentions Kat Edmonson, who I had the fortune of seeing a couple years ago and she’s pretty dang good. His description of Nashville is nice and concise as well.

    I’m really looking forward to the upcoming Jerry Lee Lewis album…looks like I’ll just have to reread Hellfire to pass the time.

    “Despite being a son of Texas, Pat Green was honored last Friday when the governor of Illinois declared the day Pat Green Day.”

    In an unrelated note, Pat Green made a substantial donation to Gov. Pat Quinn’s reelection campaign fund.

    Thanks for the A.A. Bondy note. Can’t wait to hear the new songs.

    Makes me wonder what Steve Earle actually did on HIS first day of prison?

    I wasn’t expecting Ray Benson to give a shout out to Big Sandy, but I’m glad he did. That was a nice interview to be sure.

    Trailer’s relative size charts sre impressive, but I don’t get the references to “Carrie Underwood Kool Aid” and “Billy Currington’s manscaping”? Hmm….

    I went to the Caroline Herring link and must say I prefer the song “Paper Gown” to “Tales of the Islander” by quite a margin. They are both fine songs though. Thanks for the link.

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s artists will include Darius Rucker, Gene Watson, Danielle Peck, Aaron Tippin (just for Jim Malec!), Craig Morgan, Connie Smith, and Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys (& Girl!), and some short, old guy as well…(lol)

    Tuesday Night Opry’s give each artist a full 15 minutes and are more enjoyable than the Friday and Saturday night versions (also because they feature fewer Opry Legends).

    The show starts at 7 PM Nashville time! I’m excited! (lol)

    Apparently, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will be co-hosting the CMAs again this year. I love Brad, but I hope he can loosen up this time around. I know he can be more natural than he was on the show, judging by other speaking events that I’ve watched of his.
