    That Band of Heathens video is great. Their live-show is as awesome of a show as any act that has emerged in the last couple of years is gonna put on. Their studio albums have been fine, but in concert, they are just insane…

    The Dailey and Vincent news isn’t one of Country California’s Fake News articles?:)

    Jamie’s one of the Brothers’ biggest fans ever forever. I’m looking forward to hearing the album.

    Its a nice thing Jimmy Wayne is doing and all, but he didn’t thin beforehand that it would be cold in January?

    The Statler Brothers allegiance has always struck me as one of the more interesting things about Dailey & Vincent, if only because it’s an influence that not many other acts seem to be drawing on. The Cracker Barrel tribute album should be good.

    BluegrassJournal.com published the press release for anyone wanting to give it a read. “Flowers On the Wall” ought to be interesting.

    Can’t say that I’ve ever been able to get into the Statler Brothers, but I’m still interested in the upcoming album.

    I’ve always liked the Statler Brothers a lot. I’m looking forward to this album. The Statler Bros. covers on D&V’s previous two albums were very good.

    Quick comment: In that Taylor Swift/Mallary Hope karaoke video right near the start of Taylor’s performance doesn’t it look like a guy comes up to the stage and touches Taylor’s butt? Was he doing something with the microphone cable or as Brad Paisley might say “copping a feel”? Hmm…

    Jimmy Wayne like most of America didn’t realize this freezing cold/snow was coming so soon after Christmas.

    So glad Mallary came in to sing. She’s great and so much better than Karaoke Taylor. Couldn’t hear Taylor at all once Mallary sang. But no one can sing it like Miranda!

    Taylor Swift “singing” Miranda should be an indictable offense…

    Trailer’s “That’s How Obama Voters Roll” is a scream! Maybe he can submit it to Paul Shanklin so it could wind up getting played on the Rush Limbaugh show between “Barack The Magic Negro” and Barney Frank’s “Banking Queen”! Great stuff, Trailer but the sad part is Obamavoters wouldn’t recognize the truth of the lyrics if they bit them on the ass and caused them to extract their heads! Its comforting to know not every blogger on country music related blogs is an Obamavoter! (just most of them unfortunately…)

    Now Brady, you said Taylor Swift’s recent boy troubles were not news worthy and you include that puff piece about Jimmy “Sara Smile” Wayne not having enough brains to come in out of the cold! Crikey! (lol)

    PS – For any of you who like the western swing stylings of Erik Swanson And Shoot Low Sheriff, I highly recommend Erik’s previous group “Cowboys And Indians” 1998 CD titled “Big Night In Cowtown”. It swings out in a way that seems modern and fresh compared to Asleep At The Wheel’s museum piece tribute approach. If “Big Night In Cowtown” doesn’t make you want to get up and dance, its time to call the undertaker! Dallas rules the Texas country music scene! (lol)

    Get one while you still can!

    But Trailer wrote, at the top of his post: “Please note that this is a satire as well as a parody.”

    Apparently, you’ve chosen not to make that note.

    Looking forward to the Dailey & Vincent CD. They’ve already covered the Statlers several times & done them a lot of justice!!! Great duo.
