    I’m so glad to read about Matt Hillyer finally getting his hair cut! OK Matt, you can come back to LA now and not worry about some drunk redneck mother’s son trying to kick your ass and raise some hell! (lol)

    Music City Roots vs. Opry Again! Tonight’s Opry has Music City Roots beat hands down (unless you are a guitar geek). The Opry will feature: Josh Thompson, Joey+Rory, Del McCoury, Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley, Mandy Barnett, and Connie Smith. That’s quite a line-up! Grade: A! The Music City Roots “Guitar Night” features Kenny Vaughan (as mentioned above), Guthrie Trapp(?), Pete Huttlinger(?), and Pat Bergeson(?).
