    Music City Roots Alert! Tonight the MCR gang is back in action and the show will feature Della Mae (or is that Delta Rae?), Marley’s Ghost, Carolina Story, Tom Yarbrough, and the Johnny Possum Band. When it comes to spotlighting obscure Americana artists, nobody beats MCR! (lol)

    So let me get this straight: T-Bonehead was a music consultant on ABC’s new “Nashville” sudser and the show’s music will be marketed by Scott Borchetta’s “Big Machine” label. Thank goodness the music was never a primary reason I’ve been planning on watching the show…(lol)

    So if Jerrod Niemann is a “sensitive bro”, does this mean he will soon be featured on a “Sonic” commercial talking about his taste buds?

    Its a shame that Stagecoach no longer sells one day passes as the Friday line-up would be almost worth $ 50 to me. Well sort of anyway.

    Advice to the owners of the Johnny Cash boyhood home: Do NOT sell it to Barry Gibb! (lol)
