    Maybe I missed any discussion, but did anybody else think Taylor Swift made for a pretty decent ‘pissed-off-Annie’ on SNL this past weekend?

    Nettles and Bush were running giddily across a Nashville-area athletic field in clear plastic globes, imitating the crowd-surfing portion of their show, when a sudden gust of wind sent their oversized hamster balls sailing toward each other at high speeds.”

    That shouldn’t be funny, but it is.

    Speaking of Taylor Swift did anyone catch her singing on SNL last Saturday? And if so what did you think?

    The tribute to Robert Earl Keen recorded at a previous Steamboat MusicFest is pretty solid, and has a previously unreleased REK track.

    Sam Bush is a truly interesting musician and a fun performer to hear live. Well at least until he goes off into one of his meandering jam sessions that is.

    I don’t really grasp Charlie Louvin’s gig out here in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles in early February. Maybe he’s coming out just for Hollerin’ Ben! (lol)

    I’ve long surpassed my tolerance quota for seeing or hearing anything regarding Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood. I much prefer to read about artists who make music that matters (well, to me anyway).

    Stormy, you realize it’s supposed to be funny, right?

    I voted everyday … but it looks like The 9513 is going to finish in a very respectable 7th place. Way to go, you guys! And thanks for setting the standard for country music blogs.

    If there was justice in this world, it would be Robert Earl Keene appearing on SNL rather then the talentless Taylor Swift.
