    For the record, the Big Machine referred to here as making an e-mail slipup is a pop publicity agency with no country clients, and not the Big Machine label out of Nashville.

    Political presidents shouldn’t ever try to show their musical talents – Bill Clinton makes them all look like first grades when he picks up the saxaphone! Now I want to find a video of it though and hear Obama sing.

    I wish I had a Willie story. Always cool to read those fan stories.

    That Garth mention was from what he said to Jay Leno, the whole show can be watched on the Tonight Show’s Official site – it’s linked in my latest blog on MySpace if you’re too lazy to google the tonight show. Worth a watching, that’s for sure.

    I meant potential presidents, not political, oh well. Haha.
