    Amazon is offering a code today, in place of their Daily Deal, where you can get $3 off of any one of 35 choices of albums. The choices include the Robert Plant Rounder release, Jamey Johnson’s, James Otto’s, and Joey+Rory’s new albums. The code is “PICKDEAL”.

    I’ve been hoping Alan Jackson would do that bluegrass album someday. I wonder what an easy listening country album is exactly though?

    Hm, odds on the other two EPs of the Jo Dee Messina project ever seeing the light of day?

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry will feature Emily West, Joe Diffie, Dailey & Vincent, and the “rarely on pitch gang” also known as Diamond Rio! Grade: B+

    Opry Schedule: http://www.opry.com/shows/ThisWeek.html

    Reminder: Elizabeth Cook will be at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in The People’s Republic of Santa Monica this coming Saturday night for any Los Angeles based readers that may be interested. I sure hope a decent sized audience shows up…

    Just a heads up, but you can also stream the new Zac Brown Band album a week early on Rhapsody.

    I think you could apply that description to Freight Train well enough. And I don’t mean that as an insult.

    I don’t think that’s what he’s meaning though, since he speaks of it as a future endeavor.

    I used to buy every Alan Jackson disc, but I have not bought this latest one and don’t expect to. There used to be a freshness and universality to his music– songs like “Here In the Real World” and “Chattahoochie” and “Don’t Rock the Jukebox”.

    He started to go downhill when he sang about the nose hairs in his mustache, and his recent lyrics about being a simple, bologna-eating country boy whose interests are limited to surfing the Internet for old cars have struck me as provincial and vapid.

    Lucky,
    You’re loss. The latest Jackson album is good.

    Yeah there is a spam problem on this website but there used to be a Jon Weisburger problem on this website. That guy’s comments were so obnoxious!
