    I assume the Patty Loveless cd is only available online. I was unable to find it in WalMart or Target. But they had plenty of the new Barbra Streisand cd.

    Crazy story about Daron Norwood – I vaguely recall him from the 90s. What was/were his single(s)??

    Attendees told the station that he spent an hour and 45 minutes shouting at students and faculty, using inappropriate language, shooting basketball and playing music while barely addressing the subject of drug abuse. A fire alarm was finally pulled in order to end the assembly, and police were called to make him leave the school.

    In my high school we would have called that the best assembly ever.

    Sounds to me like Mr. Norwood METHodically went through the motions, achieving little. Whatever…his METHodology was a bit…off. He should try a different METHod in order to get through to the kids. METHinks he needs to re-evaluate and get in touch with his METHodist roots.

    I wonder what his problem could have been?

    Why would they let him go on like that for almost two hours? That school should have ended the assembly far earlier if he was acting like that.

    Country music needs more Daron Norwood’s. Not enough singers do stupid ass stuff anymore.

    Stephen: They were out of class and watching a guy go batpoo crazy. There were probably kids in that audience who blocked the doors so no one could make him leave.

    And sure as shit, it’s his birthday today!! Daron turns 40, according to our Country Gold Minute at work.

    wow, sweet news regarding the Carter Family collection at VT. I know where I’m heading during lunch tomorrow.

    I am really looking forward to the new Joe Nichols album now, at least more than I was. “Believers” was incredibly generic, but this song and the Jamey Johnson cut should be stand outs.

    I think Daron Norwood needs someone to talk to, someone who can sit down with him and get his life straightened out. Is Doug Supernaw available?

    I couldn’t help but think of ol’ Doug too.:)
