    “The House That Built Me” is such an outstanding and noteworthy song. I’m glad and somewhat reassured about the country music audience of today to hear that it’s Lambert’s fastest-rising single.

    The Peter Wolf album features his duet with Shelby Lynne.

    ^That duet…”Tragedy” was performed last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show.

    Miranda has such pure raw honesty when she sings “The House that built Me”. Definitely deserving of next year’s awards for single and song.

    This is one of the best songs in a long time. Miranda sells it with pure emotion that I don’t think many artists today can pull off. Miranda didn’t write the song, but I can’t imagine anyone else bringing life into the way she she does.

    If song isn’t a massive hit for Miranda, something is deathly wrong with Music Row. Songs like this give me hope that there is still quality material out there. I read that lots of top-notch songs don’t even see the light of day in Nashvile; I want to believe this with all the medicority that reaches the public, but it’s difficult to when Miranda can put out excellent songs and albums time and time again while still managing to sell to the mainstream audience.

    The video is beautiful; simple, sweet, and emotional, just like the song. An excellent peiece of work.

    Nicolas,

    Dierks’ new “Amalgamation” (sounds better than bastardized) album sounds a bit iffy. I was interested in hearing the originally planned stand alone bluegrass album, but if this new one mimics the sound of “What Was I Thinking”, the bet’s off.

    The concept of the new Willie Nelson album sounds interesting. Now if only Ray Benson were producing it rather than T-Bone…

    Hey, does Peter Wolf sing a countrified version of “Centerfold” on his new CD? Hmm…

    As for the new releases: So many new albums, so little desire to hear any of them. Its kind of like a musical version of the “malaise” Jimmy Carter used to talk about.
