    Ok, so this is about the 10th time in 7 days that we have heard something about John Rich. Wow.

    For all that may be wondering, Carrie won’t be at the CMT Awards, because her mom is having a big birthday. And speaking of her:
    “The Country Music Hall of Fame will open Carrie Underwood: All-American Girl, a new spotlight exhibit featuring the dress Underwood wore at the 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards, on June 11.”
    Awesome! I was at the Country Music Hall Of Fame last year and now I can’t wait to go back! Congratulations Carrie! I am really excited about that so thanks for the news!

    I think being constantly couped up on that bus with her family is finally getting to Cia Leigh Cherryholmes! First it was the tattoo and now she’s got a cigar and a John Deere T-shirt! (lol)

    Good for Miranda and her “Cause for Paws” charity fundraiser. That would be a rare unplugged Miranda performance I would really enjoy seeing live.

    Rhonda Vincent kicks ass. What else can I say….

    Way to go Miranda! <3

    And I’m excited for Kellie Pickler’s performance on the CMT Music Awards; I kinda hope that she sings her third single, instead of “Best Days” since she sang that on the CMAs, which is probably “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You” … <3 I love that song

    Are John Rich and Mindy McCready in a headline war?

    I can’t believe John Rich was in Cafe Coco in the first place. That seems more like a Big Kenny kind of place to me.

    John Rich just looks for any place to drop in and cause a scene.

    Or maybe he was talking with Big Kenny was talking to him on the phone and told him to meet him at Cafe Coco so he could get off the phone with him.

    Dude, I don’t guess you’ve ever seen the family, starting with Jere and Sandy, both of whom sport some fine tattoos.

    IF Rich was drunk enough to start with, maybe he thought he was at the Exit/In.

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry will include Josh Turner, Aaron Tippin, Craig Morgan, and Justin Moore along with the regulars. Thursday night’s “Classic Country Opry” will be a tribute to Conway Twitty and will include Terri Clark, Jeff Bates, Elizabeth Cook, aand some performers from the current Conway Twitty musical. That should be a good ‘un! (lol)

    The new Ryan Bingham album is quite good. Not every track is a winner, but it’s still quite good.
