    I totally agree with the reviewer on the Tammy Wynette bio being horribly written. It is a glorified research paper with “fact checks” and footnotes. It was oddly written as it made Tammy look like a horrible person. I read most of it and then when it got to the 10+ pages of the background history of her producer, I fast forward to the end. The writer came off as being very creepy with his letters to Tammy throughout the book. I felt like I was reading a tabloid, not a bio highlighting her life.

    Pretty slow news day when the highlights are Trailer’s fake interview and JTE getting snappy at an audience member! I wonder if JTE is feeling Odumbo’s pain? Hmm…

    I think that Chris at Music Fog is trying to score a date with the brunette half of Madison Violet by featuring them so much. Maybe if Chris ended each sentence with eh? she might notice him! (lol)

    It’s a real interview Rick. Possibly not completely honest on the FTM side, but an authentic back and forth (by email) interview.

    Sorry Trailer, that opening had me thinking it was the “Fake News” approach being applied to an interview setting. Oops!

    I have no idea how good or bad the Wynette book is, but when the reviewer Yardley writes that “there were times I wished the plane would crash, just to put me out of my misery” he seems to be guilty of the same dopey writing that he accuses the author of.
