    Hickory Wind’s review of The Hot Club of Cowtown’s “Wishful Thinking” is spot on. It is not the best album choice for being introduced to their music. Speaking of the Hot Club, the folks at Country Standard Time have posted a nice new interview with Elana and Whit:

    Has the CMHOF made Hank III sign some kind of binding promise that he’ll keep his potty mouth tendencies in check during his performance there? Hmm…

    WOW, A Luke Bryan headlining tour! I’m just so excited I can’t contain myself!…(lol)

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry will feature Emily West and The Del McCoury Band. Sadly the show will also feature the bombast of Montgomery Gentry…(lol)

    The Claire Lynch album is outstanding.

    I agree with Jon.

    Rick – I don’t know if Hank III promised anything, but the press release reads, in bold type: “Please note that this program may contain mature content.” I don’t imagine that happens too often for CMHoF related material.

    Brody, that’s hilarious and disturbing at the same time! Its almost like they need to attached one of those “Explicit Content” labels like they put on some music CDs with “mature content”…(lol)

    I can’t agree more about the Claire Lynch album. After hearing it a few weeks ago, I had to download everything I could find of hers. Then we were able to see her twice at our American Folk Festival here in Bangor at the end of August. We enjoyed the show almost as much as our experience with the Punch Brothers. Wonderful stuff.

    Cowboy Troy is no longer on Warner. NOt sure what his deal is exactly, but he was off of there sometime in the past year.

    I have no doubts it’s a self-released project, funded by JR and the Mafia.

    So it sounds like someone who contributes to The 9513 should review the Claire Lynch album and pronto. I know, it would be a perfect first submission from Jon! (I never give up!)

    Aaron Watson used to get a fair amount of hype around here, but not these days. Hmm….

    Can’t wait to hear the new John Arthur Martinez album. And yes, I’m also excited for the Aaron Watson live album. I’ve always heard he puts on a great show, but unfortunately he doesn’t come anywhere near me.

    Not to further beat a dead horse, but it’s heartbreaking to hear how much better the new songs on Miranda’s ‘Soundcheck’ performance sound than they do on the record.
