    I wonder how many pop stars/actors/reality show stars, etc. will make country albums before the trend gets cold and they all go back to writing children’s books?

    What’s all stuff going back and forth about Hewitt’s grandmother being a 3rd cousin to Patsy Cline?

    I might be interested in seeing the cover artwork of JLH’s “country album”, but that would be the extent of my interest…

    That Dualtone / Guy Clark contest sounds very similar to the one Katie Armiger’s label held recently. Copycats! (lol)

    Mica Roberts is the only gal listed above for the fishing tournament. With her Show Dog label career on the back burner maybe she plans on doing some networking during the event, or maybe she actually likes to fish! Crikey, mate….

    So Diana Jones has recently had her songs recorded by the likes of Joan Baez and Tom Russell eh? Being a right wing extremist myself, that information does not exactly motivate me to ever want to hear her music. The CD should have one of those little Obama circular hopey/changey symbols glued on to help attract the right people.

    I went to Dehlia Low’s MySpace from a 9513 link yesterday and their songs put me to sleep. I’m all for preserving the sound and style of old time mountain string band music, but listening gets tiresome really quickly. Like the Carolina Chocolate Drops they need a Blu Cantrell song to liven things up now and then.

    35 dollars for a chance to write with Guy Clark…hmmm…I might would pay that.

    Jamey Johnson was flashing some rare smiles at his Gold Album Party for “That Lonesome Song”. My favorite shot is with Luke Lewis sporting a fake glue on beard. The drink they should have been serving is XXX moonshine fresh from the still…

    I saw several people at Jamey’s gold party sporting fake goatees. It’s a little creepy on a woman.

    It’s typical of Dylan that he was jotting down Hank Snow lyrics, probably to sing them; he idolized him. It’s typical of a lot of people who follow Dylan, on the other hand, that they wouldn’t recognize that “poem” for what it was!

    Goatees (fake or real) look creepy on anyone, whatever their gender.

    This still remains among the earliest known handwritten lyrics of Bob Dylan and Christie’s is pleased to offer them in our Pop Culture auction on June 23.”

    Now those are words of someone who knows how to grasp a straw…

    “I went to Dehlia Low’s MySpace from a 9513 link yesterday and their songs put me to sleep. I’m all for preserving the sound and style of old time mountain string band music, but listening gets tiresome really quickly.”

    In the first place, Dehlia Low’s music doesn’t “preserve the sound and style of old time mountain string band music,” and in the second, listening doesn’t get tiresome at all to some folks.

    “Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Sam Bush, David Grisman and Tim O’Brien are a handful of artists who contributed to to the new album The Road Home – A Tribute To Butch Baldassari.”

    That should read “AMONG a handful,” and it’s actually a fairly big one – 20 cuts, to be exact. Looks to me like some are reissues of previously recorded stuff, but I know for a fact there are some new ones, as I played on one. Butch was a great musician and a real class act; I miss him every day. Here’s a direct link to the project: http://www.soundartrecordings.com/TheRoadHome.shtml .

    Jamey Johnson’s “Gold Record” party got a really nice write-up at CMT and it includes pictures of the women and even Jamey’s daughter wearing the fake goatees! Chris N. was right, it is scary…(lol)

    Jon, I think that band should actually be named “Dehlia’s Lullaby” since their music can cause narcolepsy…
