    Chesney didn’t want to run the risk of having to sing live again, so he decided to take a break.
    That AMC performance was so shameful, ill never look at him the same way again.
    If you have to lipsynch, just dont show up. Take a year off or two years off whatever.

    I’d go to the Miles and Music for Kids concert at Billy Bob’s just to see Kristin Kelly! Can’t say I’d stick around for anyone else though…

    Trailer’s dopplegangers have reached the same level as the pioneering efforts by Rita Ballou! And no, I do not buy the rumors that Trailer is Rita in drag! Yikes! (lol)

    The “revised” Steeldrivers are on the Opry tonight. That Gary Nichols fellow was on Music City Roots recently and I wasn’t impressed. The magic is gone…

    Thanks for the Cherryholmes link! Love those freebies!

    Kenny better not take too much time off, or he’ll be, pretty much, history like all the rest of them that has. That’s so weird that he’d lipsynch. Even if he was sick and lost his voice, he shouldn’t have performed, imo. An apology for not being able to perform that night would have been better than lipsynching. Did he really think nobody would notice? Geez!

    Him losing his voice was an example. I’ve heard no reason why.

    Guess I should’ve read first, but if he’s exhausted, he should have been at home in the bed.

    Scott is only wasting his energy on Taylor Swift. He forgets he got other artists on his label too. Artists that’s better than Taylor.

    Jack should be in Taylor’s place in the first place. He should be the one selling tons of records.

    He should be the one to carry the torch of country pop to the mainstream world. Cause even if most of Jack’s new music are leaning more to the pop side of country, his lyrics remains the same.

    Plus he never really abandoned his love for traditional country and Tom Petty…:-)Atleast Jack knows who Hank and Tom is.Taylor probably knows them too. Only by name and not by the music.

    Just my humble Filipino opinion though. :-)

    Wanting to carry the torch of country pop to the world is rather what lost Jack a lot of those core fans.
