    Nice to see Pop Matters give a shout-out to the Grascals (though it’s Terry Eldredge, not Jamie Johnson, who’s singing lead on “My Old Friend The Blues”), but in the patting-myself-on-the-back department, it’s even nicer to see an album I’ve got two co-writes on make the top of their list ;-).

    And by the way, while that’s a nice little piece of Craig’s with Shawn Camp, it’s kind of a follow-up to a meatier piece that I don’t remember making an appearance in Brody’s roundups. My apologies to Brody if I’m wrong about that, but in case I’m not, here’s the link to Craig’s excellent piece on writing, co-writing and pitching here in Music City:

    I think Brody linked to the earlier Craig Havighurst piece in yesterday’s roundup.

    While the Colt Ford video IS available, lets hope someone makes an executive decision at CMT.

    Does Julianne Fluff really think her video was pulled by CMT for being “too sexy”? This is a Viacom/MTV station we are talking about! Crikey! Also, isn’t this the same video that debuted month’s ago where she is dancing around the high rise apartment in her underwear, or is this different? Hmm…

    I like where Shawn Camp says: “And it wears you out mentally to try to write that (same stuff) all the time, and it makes you stale and makes you boring.” Wow, talk about distilling the essence of Top 40 AirHead Country Radio into a few simple words.

    Kate and Kacey fans my like to know the sisters just released their first full length album titled “Crossroad”. Its available as a download or a CD at the following website:

    Fortunately their personal rant at Naomi Judd is missing from this album, unlike their EP…

    Wow, I haven’t been following the charts lately, but for that Reba single to be a #1… that’s just sickening. Worst song of her career.

    Reba is is amazing, you can’t beat the Queen of Country. There is only four solo female artist this year to get a number one hit that I know of and Reba is one of them. Carrie, Miranda, and Taylor are all in their 20’s and Reba is 55. Reba will continue to rack up number one hits for years to come.

    I don’t recall taylor having a #1 this year. Fearless barely cracked top ten and mine stalked at#2 on billboard anyways
