    Paula Nelson, a contemplative take on a true American classic. Great stuff.

    I’m surprised that “No One Needs to Know” and “You Win My Love” didn’t make GAC’s Shania countdown (those were awesome), though I’m not at all surprised that “Party for Two” was so high on the list. That just might be my favorite Shania video.

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry will include Emily West, Daryle Singletary, Kathy Mattea, and Blake Shelton and scores a solid “A-” grade! The Saturday Opry will feature Rebecca Lynn Howard, Hal Ketchum, Kathy Mattea, and Lee Greenwood for a “B”.

    That’s a decent set of Lee Ann Womack songs analyzed at Limewire. I would have left out the Buddy Miller song though and picked another of her early career big radio hits.

    The proper response to the question “Who Is The Randy Rogers Band?” should have been “Who outside of Texas really gives a sh*t?”…

    I like them and I’m definitely not from Texas. You’re not the only person in the world.

    I’m from Nebraska, and I also like Randy Rogers.

    I don’t know about leaving off “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger,” which is a mighty fine song, but I would have loved to see “The Fool” on that Lee Ann Womack song list; it’s a dandy, written by (among others) my buddy Charley Stefl.

    I’m surprised Adkins would join Toby Keith’s label. They may be friends, but they’re also competitors–They’re both middle-age, tough-guys appealing to the same audience.

    Maybe it will work out fine, but I can forsee trouble when Adkins thinks the label is pushing Toby’s music over his.

    I love that ‘Have you ever seen the rain video.’ Great rendition.
