    I bet Taylor sings ‘Check Yes or No’.

    I must have missed the announcement that George Strait was named Artist of the Decade.

    Ooo, good call, J.R. I bet you’re right.

    And I love that whatever song she picks will invariably become one of the most traditional things she’s ever performed. Her performance of “Drive” was fascinating for that reason alone.

    It’s a huge joke that Swift, Sugarland etc are singing at the Strait tribue. What a waste!

    i don’t remember the decade being quite that boring and bland.

    I think they should allow Taylor Swift to sing a personalized version of one of George’s songs. I’d recommend “Disney Channel By Morning”.

    Love the quote from the guitarists from “Finger Eleven” (whatever that is): “The band are influenced by the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, Merle Travis and……..Kenny Rogers(!?#@*).” So we can expect songs that remind us of “If I Needed You”, “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “Kinfolk In Carolina” and….”Islands In The Stream”(!?#@*). Crikey, mate! (lol)

    I thought that maybe the Zac Brown video was about him taking off his knit watch cap for the first time in public! Oh well….

    Rick’s Random Tidbits: The latest Nashville Skyline at CMT.com is about commercial sponsorship of country artists. In the article Chet Flippo makes mention of Hank Williams Sr. being associated with the “Hadacol Caravan” in the early 1950′s. A Google search turned up a fascinating webpage that covers some of the history of the Hadacol elixir and how it was promoted. Its safe to say that the Food and Drug Administration either did not exist then or wasn’t yet flexing its muscles at the time
