    Some day, big-time book publishers (and reviewers) may even learn that there’s more to the subject of country music than the 28th Cash bio, 14th Hank Williams bio, 18th Patsy Cline bio.
    But I doubt it.

    Barry,

    Gotta agree there. Talk about beating a dead horse (no pun intended) to death.

    This one is going to feature 4 1/2 minutes of his life that no one has ever covered before.

    Jesse Dayton is the perfect guy to play Kinky! He’s both kinky and like the real Kinky he can’t sing very well. Its a match made in kitschville…

    [Edited: unnecessary political commentary.]

    That Aussie humor column is a hoot. Sadly a large percentage of the big city dwellers in Sydney probably agree with the article’s sentiments. Crikey, mate!

    Jacob Lyda has a nice, twangy country voice. Its what Chris Young probably wishes he could sound like, and what Joe Nichols should sound like more frequently.

    Let’s see…I’m checking my “give a damn meter” on Gurf Morlix and Blaze Foley. Uh oh, the meter’s jammed in the “Don’t give a damn about most Texas music” section of the dial! Oh well…

    Oh darn, my days of political mockery at The 9513 are over! Well if they hadn’t done it the Obama regime would have eventually. Oh well…(lol)

    Hey, I just wanted to bring attention to Country Standard Time’s “Top 33 Country Albums of 2010″ list put together by Jeffrey Remz. The most notable feature is that his “Honorable Mentions” includes the Marshall Ford Swing Band’s 2010 release! All I can say is that “Its About Dam Time” that someone recognized that album! Peter Wolf’s “Midnight Souvenirs” is also a bit of a ringer. Its worth a look:
