    Gosh, yet another sizeable list of new albums releases I have no interest in, although I do like the name “Trombone Shorty”! (lol)

    I’ve never been a fan of Little Big Town, but my reaction to Karen Fairchild remains a solid “WOW”!

    Will Hoge made his Opry debut recently when Vince Gill invited him to come and perform one of Amy’s favorite songs. It was one of those rare “Opry Moments” to be sure.

    Mght have to check out that Randy Travis interview and performance at the Grammy Museum in downtown LA on the 21st. These events usually don’t sell many tickets but they are always fascinating. Thanks for the heads up.

    So now Elizabeth Cook has met Unknown Hinson thanks to Squidbillies! The possible types of duets they could sing together is a wonderful thing to ponder! (lol)

    Steve Winwood played on Baggage Claim?! Nice.

    Does this mean we can expect Clapton and Ginger Baker to show up on the album as well?
