    Here’s hoping Lucinda’s new album is better than her last one!

    Kenny’s showing scalp.

    Also, here’s a pertinent quote from the Wikipedia entry on The Jerk:

    “He is the adopted white son of black sharecroppers, who grows to adulthood naively unaware of his obvious adoption. He stands out in his family not just because of his skin color, but also because of his lack of rhythm.”

    I could see a Jamey Johnson and Willie Nelson collaboration. Hell, after Julio, Kenny and Maria I could see Willie duet with anyone..

    I would love to hear Johnson taking up the Waylon part of “Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)”

    Regarding the comment about Jewel’s marriage to Ty Murray: “Murray says the couple has already begun work on starting a family.” Ty knows he better hurry up since now that its “married sex” he knows Jewel will lose interest quickly…….(PS – They’ve had 10 years of practice, so making a baby shouldn’t be too difficult).

    Based upon the artists booked for the Opry Cruise, I’d expect a median participant age somewhere between 75 and dead….(although Mandy Barnett will at least make the old men’s hearts pitter patter a bit, so they better remember to bring the nitroglycerin pills.)

    I love Danielle Peck and its a shame her singing voice isn’t more pleasant to listen to….

    As for Melissa Lawson on the Opry, its strange this week because the TV broadcast segments (when they record them) are usually the Opry segment from 7-8 PM Nashville time (CST). Since Pacific Standard Time (PST) out here in California is 2 hours earlier I can watch GAC’s live broadcast or listen live online via WSM starting at 5 PM PST. The Opry.com website shows Melissa in the segment from 8-9 PM Nashville Time which delays everything by an hour. Should be interesting as Guy Clark is on the docket as well for all you Texans (along with Vince Gill and The Grascals). See for yourself:

    “Murray says the couple has already begun work on starting a family.”

    Pretty suave way to tell people “I sure am having sex with Jewel a lot.”

    I’ve heard of screamers… but do you think Jewel is a yodeler?

    Funny you should mention that Zach as my favorite cowboy singer Dave Stamey wrote a song about a girl who does just that and I’m hoping it will be on his next album……
