    New Aaron Watson material, awesome. And that recording of “Coal Miner’s Daughter” sounds pretty good, I’m looking forward to the rest of that album.

    Well it’s about time someone did a Jerry Lee Lewis biopic! Though, personally, I was envisioning someone like Dennis Quaid as the Killer, with maybe Wynona Ryder as his child bride. Still, it’s great to know Hollywood never runs out of original ideas!

    You mean like the 4th remake of King Kong or the 7th Robin Hood!

    “Cold Miners Daugther”, love all three of these girls. Have already called the station to ask to hear it first thing tomorrow……The Hair Do has to be that of MR COUNTRY MUSIC. I’m sure he would approve!! The more attention the better for this one!!!!

    I wasn’t planning on buying that Loretta Lynn tribute album, and after hearing that track I’m really not going to be buying! That’s just weak…

    There are a lot of great country music acts in Canada and just like in the US they don’t get mentioned or recognized on the big awards shows! (With the notable exception of Corb Lund who operates off in his own little niche, which they at least recognize).

    Trailer’s pie chart rates a solid “4 Hoots”. Including Justin Moore with Jason Aldean would have earned an additional 1/2 hoot!

    I wonder how the Ray Charles version of “Little Bitty Tear” will compare to Burl Ives’ hit from the 1950’s? Hmm…

    Great, Joey+Rory get on national morning TV and sing the crappiest song off their new album! That’s just friggin’ awesome.

    Thumbs up to the Justin Townes Earle album. Thumbs down to Zac Brown even as a freebie.

    Had an unreal time at Canadian Country Music Week, and saw some incredible performances at clubs all over Edmonton. There really is an incredible amount of talent up north of the border and Americans need to learn more about it, which they hopefully will very soon!! :)

    Looking forward to the Jackson/McBride duet. Judging by their other one, I’m expecting it to be good.
