    I didn’t love Jewel’s CD, but it’s definitely worth a buck, especially for a good cause.

    I don’t go to that many country shows, but I’d definitely save up some scratch to see Brad and Keith together. McSweeney’s list is hilarious: “Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire: I did it with you, and now it hurts when I pee.” I hate lol’ing but lol. Thanks for the P’crap pub.

    Look for the Paisley/Urban “We married ridiculously way out of our league” tour near you.

    I bet the Paisley/Urban “We married ridiculously way out of our league” tour will be sponsored by Urban Outfitters (Frilly T-Shirt department)…

    I like the reference to Josh’s song in the news about his daughter’s birth.

    Grrrrrrrreat!! With ABC winning the time slot game with the CMAs, this will give the CMAs license for the same ol’ tired crap next year as well.

    Will those $1 Jewel CDs count as units sold? The CD is probably not going to go gold, but if it did get into that sales range, would deeply discounted units count toward the total?

    and will be giving the proceeds to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

    I can’t say why exactly, but this angers me.

    One might also suggest that giving the proceeds of sales of a day at full price might be a touch more generous.

    “One might also suggest that giving the proceeds of sales of a day at full price might be a touch more generous.”

    Not if the album isn’t selling at full price.

    A fair point. Assuming the reduction results in multiplying the sales by the same factor the price/profit has been reduced by… And if it’s based on profits rather than gross proceeds, I can’t imagine much making its way to the Hall of Fame’s bank account.

    Maybe the time has come for Kenny Chesney to look at his musical sound and get back to the country sound and not the Caribbean sound that is pretty much in all his songs. I really think people are getting tired of that. Lets see Kenny get to the heart of his country music and sounds that there should be. This is my opinion and i approved this message……..

    Andy Whitman’s comments about the Darrell Scott album “Modern Hymns” starts off with:
    “Darrell Scott’s Modern Hymns gets my vote for “Best Bluegrass Album of 2008″. Here “bluegrass” is used loosely, and is a catch-all term for music anchored by acoustic guitars, fiddles, and dobros. It certainly doesn’t fit within the fairly narrow strictures of the genre.” WOW, then why even label it a “bluegrass album” at all? By Andy’s definition I’d proclaim Joey + Rory’s “Life of a Song” as “Best Bluegrass Album of the Year”! Crikey, mate…..

    Tommy Duncan fans definitely include The Quebe Sisters Band and their leader Joey McKenzie. At most Quebe Sisters concerts they perform a song from Tommy’s solo career as “The Tommy Duncan All Stars” and encourage people to buy the LP if they ever come across it at a garage sale or swap meet.

    Trailer’s revised album titles continue to be a certified “hoot” at PhotoCrap and are always worth the read.

    This is one of your best roundups so far. I laughed out loud three times: the Unbelievable (Ann Marie) line, Photocrap (Brooks & Dunn: Template was my favorite), and “50 Years of Popular Songs” (really not what I thought it was going to be about). I can see why you are having your biggest numbers ever!

    “And if it’s based on profits rather than gross proceeds, I can’t imagine much making its way to the Hall of Fame’s bank account.”

    At $1 per CD,there aren’t going to be any net profits. I would imagine that it has to be gross proceeds.

    the “We married ridiculously way out of our league” tour will have to be headlined by the bass player from rascall flatts that looks like the Heat Miser from A Year Without a Santa Claus yet somehow managed to marry a playboy centerfold….

    Keith deserved Entertainer of the Year, I saw him in concert in Lexington, Ky. Rupp was sold out and he totally rocked the place. I totally do not like Kenny Chesney, he only sounds like a Beach Bum and he made a slobbering fool of himself over Shania at the awards. Keith, when the fans get to vote, then you’ll be the winner, at the People’s Choice Awards, whatever that is in Country music.

    Debbie, Well Keith is good he learned from the best from being on tour with Kenny!

    Funny thing You say Keith sold out in Lexington Ky. but he couldn’t sell out Knoxville Tn. I went to the Knoxville show like I say he’s good but not as good as Kenny live. JMO!

    Tommy Duncan was a great vocal artist although he seemingly needed Bob Wills to get the best out of himself. Tommy’s solo efforts are not in the same class as his efforts as a Texas Playboy

    A Paisley/Urban tour would be interesting. I doubt their fan bases overlap much

    Katie, what’s to learn from Kenny Chesney, since he’s stolen all his gimmicks from Jimmy Buffett!Half of Kenny’s fans don’t even know where they are during the concert because they are so drunk. Kenny doesn’t do a concert, he throws a big drunkfest. I read a review of one of Kenny’s “concerts” and the reviewer said he doubted half the people there knew who was on stage and what they were singing. Kenny’s label has just gotten him where he is, definitely not his singing. Keith Urban is way more talented than Kenny ever thought about. It was so obvious at the CMAs. I use to go to Kenny’s concerts and then Keith toured with him and I found out what real talent was.

    Margie, I dout you’ve been to a Jimmy Buffett show or you’d no it’s nothing like a Kenny show.

    I’ve seen Keith like I say he’s good but not the best. I’ve seen Brad he’s good but not the best.
    They all have talent in there own way. Kenny may not play guitar like Keith or Brad but he can sing and connect with a huge stadium full like no one else. That is a real ENTERTAINER to me. JMO!!

    Katie, I didn’t say KC’s concerts were like JB’s! KC tries to be, but without any success. Well, I’ve seen Kenny and he, to me, is not the best and I’m glad because it would be a shame. If KC is a good singer, then why has he never won Male Vocalist, both Keith and Brad have. Also he’s never won a Grammy or been nominated like Keith and Brad have. Katie, filling a stadium does not a great entertainer make. Kenny throws a party, not really a concert and it’s not really about the music. If he didn’t have several big names with him, I seriously doubt he could fill them by himself. But for me, I don’t care for stadium shows. Glad you like Kenny, but thankful I’m a Keith Urban fan.
