    The Cactus Cafe will live on in a partnership with KUT-FM, Austin’s NPR affiliate.

    Picture me doing the Happy Happy Joy Joy dance.

    I am really excited to hear the new music from Jamey Johnson. His descriptions are certainly more enticing than what I’m hearing from Jennifer Nettles about the new Sugarland album.

    I laughed out loud at the Willie and Conan dolls too.

    I’m glad you’re happy, Stormy. I bet you’re cute as a button doing your, Happy Happy Joy Joy, dance!LOL! Jamey Johnsons album sounds like it could, really, be awesome!

    Oh, and that’s a compliment. It’s an old expression in case no one has heard it.

    I agree with Willie, but in defense of Country Radio, I actually think it’s gotten slightly better in the last month or two. It still isnt what myself or most music fans would like it to be, but it does seem like a few more new traditional songs by Chris Young, Clay Walker, Easton Corbin, etc. are getting good spins.

    Kellie Pickler’s new video is awesome! <3 I love this new single and really hope it goes on to be her biggest hit

    Its called "Makin' Me Fall in Love Again" though, not "Fall in Love"
