    Even Reeba’s on twitter now, my goodness.

    Brad really is one of, if not my FAVORITE video artist of all time. Celebrity is the most priceless piece of work in history and should be preserved as true Americana in the Smithsonian for all of time. But that’s just me talkin’.

    Brad Paisley news (sick of it yet?): They cut the single, “Welcome To The Future”, down to 4:42 (from nearly 6 mins) for radio. They left the final verse in. They just cut out the long intro and some other guitar parts, it seems.

    Scott Borchetta’s “Fast Ryde” project has released its debut single, titled “That Thang”. It’s Honkytonk Badonkadonk version two, and no, it’s probably not worth listening to.

    I’m looking for this Fast Ryde single…
    I see no pictures of the group, no single anywhere to be found, no site, nothing. So after searching I finally find it:

    My reaction:
    What the heck is this?
    Sounds like somebody in first grade wrote it, somebody in second produced it. There comes a point when you need to lay off the cymbal. They’re fun to hit, yes, but don’t make that appealing of a sound.

    That’s not country music.

    “That’s not country music.”

    Not your definition of it but definitely radio’s.

    Good, I’m glad they kept all the words in “Welcome To The Future”, but that would never have been allowed. It’s a great song.

    I sure hope the second album from Chris Young is better than his first effort or he’s toast! Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice…well you know the rest.

    So Josh Turner’s new kid is named Colby huh? Either someone around that household really likes cheese or watches “All My Children” on ABC…(lol)

    Hopefully Jimmy Harnen is primarily responsible for “Fast Ryde” as I just haven’t seen Scott Borchetta display that kind of poor taste / judgement yet. Its a shame to see a real talent like Sunny Sweeney take a back seat to those guys. Crikey mate!

    Don’t forget that Cross Canadian Ragweed’s new album, “Happiness & all the other things” comes out on September 1st. This album is gauranteed to be “bad ass”.

    I actually enjoyed Chris Young’s first album. There was one or two filler tracks, but for the most part, I thought it was a solid album.

    Like Rick, I am also real excited about his second album.
