    A big congratulations to C.M. Wilcox (and Trailer) for hitting the 100,000 milestone. Those guys are terrific.

    And I hope Luckenbach can beat the Germans’ record – if I was a guitar player, I’d fly out west to join ‘em myself. Thanks for the link too. We hope everybody enjoys our Tanya Tucker coverage – she really deserves to have the spotlight shone on her.

    Cool, Miranda’s doing the cotton thing with one of my favorite singers, Jazmine Sullivan.

    I’m excited to learn more about Tanya Tucker this month, since I know nothing about her…

    Listened to the new Gretchen track on the weekend, and I let out a completely exasperated sigh. What have we been bemoaning around here, more than anything, lately???

    Songs that are treading over the SAME ground that has been covered in the last 20 years. How many times do we need to hear a song about “Priorities” and getting said priorities in line?? I can’t put my finger on it, but I know this song is like a bastard child of “My Next 30 Years” and something else. It’s been done too many times, and I’m very disappointed in GW for this track.

    With that said, GW needed a commercial hit, or her label deal would be in jeopardy, so I’m sure the heavy-mouth-breathing public will eat this up as another song they relate to.

    What happened to the mysterious earrings song from Gretchen? I was kind of looking forward to it.

    With that said, even though the theme is a bit recycled, I like this new tune. Gretchen is in fine voice and it’s very traditional. I like it.

    Thanks guys for the shout out! I really appreciate it. :)

    I wish that GAC would continue televising the Opry – is there any reason why they haven’t shown a live performance since the winter time?? Thank goodness for WSM having it online to listen to.

    Speaking of online, check out http://www.woodsongs.com for the broadcast of Steve Warnier on the Woodsongs Ole Time Radio Hour. I may head over there and check it out.

    Jessica, I’d say the slow economy and budget cuts have waylayed GAC’s “Opry Live” show, which is a shame.

    Gretchen Wilson is so over at the “Carrie and Taylor Show”, otherwise known as Top 40 country radio, that I think they will ignore any singes from her regardless of how good they might be. And it seems Ashton Shepherd’s label may have given up on trying to get her back on radio. The days of the real redneck women with a traditional sound on mainstream country radio might be over over. (Miranda does not fit this definition as she is more of a rocker chick anyway.)

    It seems those drunken and belligerent sots at the “Trailer Park” concert took the theme a little too literally. Although the fact they were selling beer in the aisles of the Ryman is pretty authentic!

    Rick – I do remember seeing that the Opry has cut out the 2nd show on Saturday nights on a few nights. If they would drop the price back down, it may help them sell a few tickets in my opinion. I remember 4 years ago a front row was around $35 or so and now it is $50+.

    What is funny about the Traler Park Revival is that it was one of the more tamer shows that I’ve seen the boys played to be honest. I was at the infamous show in Lawsonville and well…that was indeed a wild one but also a memorable one where Jamey rocked until the wee hours of the morning & then signed autographs.
