    I heard on Imus that Jamey Johnson has recorded a version of “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad”. I can’t wait for that.

    A new single from Jamey? Although I’m glad I get to hear another song from the new album before the release date, what happened to “Macon”?

    BTW, a limited-edition, black and white triple LP of “The Guitar Song” will be released.

    “Macon” was a simple ‘teaser single’ for digital stores.

    The McClymont sisters for whatever reason have chosen the song off their first full album from 2007 that was also their first Aussie single from the “Chaos And Bright Lights” album as well. This past January they released their second full length “Wrapped Up Good” in Australia. The “Chaos” album was recorded in Nashville and produced by top pop-rock producer Adam Anders, who also helms the “GLEE” albums. Personally “Save Yourself” is not one of my favorite tracks on the “Chaos” album. I much prefer “Favourite Boyfriend Of The Year” which was once negatively reviewed at “Country Universe” and the comments that followed also piled on what I think is a fantastic song. Some people just have no taste in music…

    I like the “My Kind of Country Question”:
    “Does a listener’s perception of an artist’s personality affect their appreciation of that artist’s music?”.
    My response: personality yes to some degree (particularly if they are arrogant asses like say John Rich), but if we’re talking personal political orientation absolutely! If an artist is an outspoken Obamavoter supporter of the democrat party, they go on my blacklist where I won’t spend any further money on anything related to their music. (Exceptions for former favorite artists, like Elizabeth Cook, are made on rare occasions, like Elizabeth’s upcoming concert in Los Angeles. I’ve always wanted to see Elizabeth perform live and now I finally get the chance.)

    I found the thread to which you are referring, but I think your memory is playing tricks on you. The single was never actually reviewed, there were only seven comments, and nothing resembled “piling on.” Just sayin’.

    I’d have expected nothing less from you but really? really? Would you feel that way if any other democrat was in office?

    As for the M.K.o.C question, I can absolutely keep my personal opinions of somebody separate from their music, unless it seeps into their music.

    That’s rich coming from you, I can’t help but say.

    Sunny Sweeney Concert Alert for the “Show Me” state!

    This coming Thursday & Friday Sunny Sweeney will be performing at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia. Sunny has a crackerjack five piece band she is touring with currently and her sets cover a lot of ground style wise, all of it good. Backing harmony vocals and acoustic rhythm guitar are provided by former Dreamworks label artist JoAnna “Banana” Janet who is Sunny’s gal pal this tour. Highly recommended!

    Sunny’s schedule on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/sunnysweeney

    Go Sunny!

    I had been a little upset that Chris Stapleton left The Steeldrivers, but I may like The Jompson Brothers more, actually.
