    I heard it was because of peanut butter’s torrid affair with chocolate. I don’t blame jelly for leaving.

    I heard it was because they generally chose to house themselves in seperate containes, except when being eaten together…i knew they were a sham!

    So the tickets for that CMHOF guitar pull here in Los Angeles are only $ 750! Wow, what a bargain! (lol) Guess I won’t be attending that show….

    Trailer’s Trent Tomlinson picture is classic! I always suspected somethig like that…

    Michelle Branch is smart to not change her style in an attempt to be “more country”. Especially with Top 40 mainstream country music becoming less and less country every day why should she?

    OM-frickin’-G, that new Lady Antebellum single is exactly the song all those MOR country stars (as they were called at the time) were trying to record back when emulating Air Supply was the goal. “Need You Now” got lost on its way to 1982, and somehow ended up here.

    Despite this, I cannot deny that I’m seriously digging it. I have a new favorite song.

    BREAKING NEWS- Suffering from a respiratory infection, country recording artist Tracy Lawrence was hospitalized yesterday in Nashville. The physicians have diagnosed him with early signs of pneumonia for which he is currently receiving treatment.

    Jelly deserves better anyway. Loved that. I still think Jim and the Devil was the best, though.

    Also, I’m with Joe. Seriously digging the Lady A. song.

    I love that PB&J piece at Country California.

    First Brooks & Dunn split, now Country California reports that peanut butter and jelly are parting ways. If this keeps up, Barbie and Ken will be getting a divorce before too long.

    Oh Brody, I don’t know how to break this to you:

    Well Brody may not, but I do! I’m gonna confiscate all of your Bap Kennedy CDs! (lol)

    As for the new Lady Antebellum single, its a nice pop song from a talented power-pop band which is perfect for Top 40 country radio! Its not country, but at least its not bad…

    Three cds is only about 1% of my cd collection. Good thing I got those when I did though, because they are like gold now.

    “Change It” was released from a “Broadyway” play? Is this where the Verchers stage all their musical productions? :-)
