  1. [...] On August Mailbag - What Would Kristofferson Do?: "Katie Cook going over to GAC would be reason enough to watch CMT. I suggest that Ms Cook and Ms Alexander and their ilk purchase a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word "amazing". Maybe then they would quit using the word to describe things that are in the mediocre-to-good range." — Paul W Dennis [...]

    What’s the over/under on the first station to go all Christmas music?

    Jason and the Wiggles… priceless. Especially since my ringtone right now is Farmer Jason with Todd Snider “Moose on the Loose”….

    Technically Keith Whitley would be Lorrie’s LATE husband, not an EX husband.

    Well gee Stormy, he’s dead, how do you expect him to be on time? (ok, really bad, I know, I’m sorry. No offense intended, I really liked Keith and still listen to his music.)

    I didnt realized she’d been married to Jon Randall though.

    if keith whitley is her late husband are his successors even later ones? moreover, can they really be called successors, given the fact, that their ties with lorrie morgan weren’t actually quite such a success?

    Katie Cook looks anorexic or maybe even bolemic. Must be hangin’ out with that Underwood chick!

    Long Live Cleavage!

    I wish both Katie Cook and Lance Smith would defect to GAC as Suzanne Alexander and Storme Warren need some help over there. If they did go to GAC I would no longer have any reason to watch CMT and that would be a blessing….

    As for Taylor Swift, now her ex-boyfriends can get even and purchase Taylor Swift fashion dolls to use as voodoo dolls and then burn in effigy (although that might not be environmentally friendly)….

    Katie Cook going over to GAC would be reason enough to watch CMT. I suggest that Ms Cook and Ms Alexander and their ilk purchase a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word “amazing”. Maybe then they would quit using the word to describe things that are in the mediocre-to-good range

    i’m also constantly amazed how amazing this amazing world can be. but perhaps i’m just an excitable boy.

    Paul said ” … I suggest that Ms Cook and Ms Alexander and their ilk purchase a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word “amazing”. Maybe then they would quit using the word to describe things that are in the mediocre-to-good range.”

    I was thinking the same thing after watching this week’s CMT Insider. Just in case those gals are reading the mailbag here at the 9513, I took the liberty of looking up the word amazing in the online thesaurus. Click the link to increase your vocabulary by 1,300%, ladies …
