    “Up On The Ridge” as the best song of ’10? It’s one of the worst songs on the album. Fail by The Boot, yet again.

    Blake Shelton is a riot. I love that guy.

    Awesome lineup B&D. Nice to see you didn’t include any of the pop singers!

    I don’t hear anything so great about Up On The Ridge! I’d rather hear Rhonda Vincent sing her kind of Bluegrass.

    Blake Shelton’s list is a crack up. I wonder if the people who think CM’s “Fake News” stories are real actually believe anything Blake says in his “Take Six Tuesdays” features as well? Hmm…

    So Patty Griffin smells a rat too, huh? The vermin I’m thinking about infests the White House these days, but I doubt that’s what lib-tard Patty had in mind.

    That’s a real mistake making “Americana Idol” Buddy Miller a “resident” in any way associated with the Country Music Hall of Fame! He’ll declare the CMHOF to be Nashville’s new “Obamaville” dwelling for the homeless and other down and outers (as long as they show proof of being registered democrats). I can just see Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Todd Snider, Allison Moorer, and Elizabeth Cook working behind the counter in the soup kitchen they set up…

    I like the new Tim O’Brien song, but its no “Family History” by any means.

    So Megan Mullins voluntered to become a “doggie chew toy” just for kicks, huh? At least on NBC’s “Fear Factor” you had a chance to win some money for doing stunts like that! (lol)

    Rick, your volunteered irrelevant belligerence is not cute. It’s not smart. It’s not even troublesome. It’s just a goddamn bore and it’s damaging this site’s worth.

    Country music understands respect. You don’t.

    I’m sure Ryan Bingham’s a fine fellow, and that his heart is in the right place, but I sure wish I hadn’t listened to that.
