    Gotta love the “blah blah blah” tag that Kelly put on his Jamey Johnson grafs.

    I don’t know where Tom Roland gets the notion that Randy Rogers has the voice of Tammy Wynette when Randy doesn’t remotely sound like her at all. Hopefully he meant it as a joke or something or whether it was meant to be insulting, it’s just that I don’t get where he gets off at thinking that Randy’s voice sounds like Tammy.

    Roland says neither that Randy Rogers has the voice of Tammy Wynette nor that his voice sounds like Tammy. Perhaps if you followed the link and read what he actually wrote…

    Jon – I do a lot of that (on my blog, especially). I guess some of us are just more honest about it than others :-)

    Randy Rogers – the male Tammy Wynette? I’ve never picked up on that myself.

    I’m very excited about the expansion of the Hall of Fame. I can’t wait to see it when it’s all finished!

    I can kind of see the Wynette comparison as it was made, actually, but I’ve never thought of it myself. I always think that Rogers’ phrasing is similar to Steve Earle’s.
