    Holy crap! Austin, Reckless Kelly and baseball (sort of). Thats a better combo than Shooter and Jamey Johnson crossroads.

    I’m a little surprised to see Montgomery Gentry score an Album of the Year nod from the ACM. I think it will go to Jamey Johnson or George Strait, however.

    One of Luke Bryan’s new singles is titled “Take My Drunk Ass Home”? Oh, boy. Can’t wait. Yuck.

    Luke Bryan’s “Take My Drunk Ass Home” is the sequel to “Beer For My Horses” that Toby Keith never recorded.

    I’d like to hear “Take My Drunk Horse Home.”

    Yes, I really like the Haggard story.

    I’m kind of surprised to see Montgomery Gentry in the ACM album race. The other four were no surprise.

    Taylor Swift alert! Don’t forget that tonight is the episode of “CSI” that features Taylor’s big time acting debut. I’m not much of a fan of Taylor’s singing, but this show should be fun.

    Gloriana has a sound that reminds me of a corporate committee meeting “consensus” product. Its as if an artificial intelligence computer system was programmed to start with Little Big Town and fine tune it for Top 40 radio airplay. Could this be the first country band designed by “Skynet”? Hmmm….

    The Hag’s comments are absolutely classic. Artists who still have active careers on Top 40 country radio would never be so honest or outspoken as they could/would lose label support for being so impudent.

    When I hear Don McLean’s “American Pie” the line about “the day the music died” refers to the Buddy Holly crash, but as a country fan the Patsy Cline crash always comes to mind. What a tragic event.

    I bought Tres Chicas first album solely because it was on Yep Roc.

    Rick’s Random Tidbits: Straight from the CRS twilight zone comes this article from AllAboutCountry.com. I thought it was a put on but a picture of a Team UMG musical urinal cake was included! Where does clever marketing cross into the realm of just really bad, tacky taste! Ugh!

    “To Whizz or Not To Whizz, That is the Question!
    The men attending CRS-40 got a promotional surprise, while taking a bathroom break. As they thought they were slipping away for a quiet “non-promo whizz,” they were met with special urinal inserts in the Nashville Convention Center bathrooms today (03/04).

    Not only did the inserts have a Team UMG logo on them, they also produced audio that said things like: “delivering a steady flow of hits,” “urine good hands,” “burning through the whole industry,” “flushing down all competitors,” and “the best music for your pee ones.”

    AllAboutCountry congrats UMG on a great promo idea! (Who says, there’s nothing new under the sun?)”

    Rick’s comment: I wish I could say I’m making this up, but I’m not…..

    Rick, you aren’t and it was damn creepy to hear that voice coming from the urinal. I also have to say that while weird, it was pretty genius.

    CRS is an interesting event and it’s actually a good thing they have it…
