    The video for “White Liar” is awesome, and “Keep You” is fantastic as well. I like the video for “Cowboy Casanova”, it has sweet costumes, but I would have rather seen a bunch of guys pounding the guy to a pulp.

    I loved how CMT dished out a lot of music videos at once. It was very exciting.

    Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert’s videos were my three favorites!

    I thought Sugarland, Billy Currington, and Michelle Branch’s videos were good.

    Kenny and Keith were okay.

    Tim McGraw was my least favorite.

    I agree with Dan, But my top 3 would be: Miranda lamberts, Sugarlands, and Reba’s.

    Love the new MirLam, Carrie, Reba, and Michelle Branch videos! =)

    Sugarland’s was also pretty good

    Are we saying “MirLam” now? Is that a thing?

    Lambert’s and Underwood’s were brilliant. Speaking of Lambert, I can’t get over how great of an album Revolution is.

    Some good stuff in those last videos. Just watched Tracy Byrd and Tracy Lawrence and I’ll have to check out a few of the others.

    The fact that Jamey Johnson was in Miranda Lambert’s as the preacher makes it all that much more MirLam

    Miranda Lambert nicknames = ‘Ran or MirLam

    Is there a problem with me referring to her as such as a fan?

    Jamey Johnson being in the Lambert video sold it for me. Loved it.

    I’ll need to watch the others after work.

    Nicolas: Not unless you do it to her face.

    Thanks for the Amy Farris link to comments posted by those who knew her and honor her memory.

    Music Fog sure gets a lot of cool artists to record those videos in their motor home. Its rare they feature a new video these days that I don’t find to be interesting in some way or another.

    I’ll take a pass on all the new music videos at CMT, but I might watch the fan club videos for Josh Turner, Sara Evans, and the Two Tracy’s as their music will at least be identifiable as “country music” from a historical perspective.

    Trace Adkins might want to be careful. As time time goes on, the most conspicuous “no comment” is not Capitol’s, but his.

    “MirLam” is fine by me, I’m just trying to keep up with this stuff.

    I like “RanBert” better.

    Was “Life’s A Dance” really such a groundbreaking record that its 17th anniversary warrants a blog entry from CMT?

    I prefer “LamMir” just for how it sounds…

    I kind of wondered the same thing, Razor X, though I like the song pretty well.

    Interesting show…

    I found this article about country music… is it true?

    I think you meant to post that link in the Buddy Jewell thread.

    -I’m really bored of the fan nicknames. Just me, I know. And Razor – Reckon Scott Adams of Dilbert fame, might have a lawsuit case against “RanBert” :)

    -Jamey Johnson is God, so seeing him do the Preacher role is fitting.

    -Have always considered “Life’s A Dance” to be one of the most important songs in my development as a Country fan.

    I bagged a Lam Mir in 1947 when I was on a six month sabbatical touring the Archipelago. The steamboat chef boiled the Lam Mir meat until it was falling off the bone, and then served it in a white wine brine with hints of rosemary.

    Of course, this was all well before the LamMir’s numbers were threatened by a human-to-tree-dwelling-bipedal-rodent strain of typhoid, and the Lam Mir was placed on the endangered species list.

    Listening to Miranda’s CD to right now. I absolutely love “The House that Built Me”. I think this is going to be another Album of the year winner for her. I was listening to David Nails CD too. Not bad for a first CD. One song skips and thought darn, store won’t take it back since I opened it so glad it’s on a song that’s so so.

    AS for Videos: Carrie’s is Fantastic! Miranda’s is fun! I still don’t understand Sugarland’s video yet. I may get boo’d here but I really love Kenny’s song “I’m Alive”. It’s beautiful.

    Definitely dig the Miranda Lambert video…Jamey Johnson being preacher man is telling and the best choice. Ms. Lambert has more of my respect and eye out now.
