    Why not post a positive review of Carrie Underwood’s concert? There are plenty out there. Or post both. Show both sides. Be objective.

    No one offered an editorial-they merely offered a link to a published review.

    That’s what I meant. Why not post a link to a positive review one too? It just seems like this site jumps at any opportunity to post negative things about Carrie.

    Jojo: Why not start your own site or blog where you get to control the content?

    Because maybe no other newspaper covered the concert? In an era of shrinking newsrooms, a concert might not be the top priority.

    Out of the hundreds of sites I subscribe to, The Boston Globe was the only one I saw that published a review of that Carrie Underwood show. It might be slightly possible I don’t follow every site on the entire web and missed the positive reviews, but you’re always welcome to post your own links in the comments to make up for my lack of objectivity.

    See, I’m not the only person that thinks Carrie’s talent is vastly over-rated.

    Thanks for the heads up on The Marshall Ford Swing Band. I’ll have to track down a copy of that CD as it sounds like my cup of Texas tea! (Not the Jed Clampett variety though.)

    Randy Goodman is a very common sense leaning kind of guy for a label head. Terrestial Top 40 mainstream country radio is where vast numbers of airheaded listeners hear the music they will purchase. All other forms of marketing approaches combined are a drop in the proverbial bucket compared to Top 40 country radio, and that’s a pity.

    Hey, how about an Elizabeth Cook “Welder” give away contest! I’d like to hear it, but don’t want to pay for it based on “El Camino” and “heroin Addict Sister”. Blah.

    PS – Did any of you catch the “Star Wars bar scene” today when Odumbo and the Congressional Demoncraps signed away America’s legacy as a Constitutional Republic? Their evil glee was truly demonic and utterly pathetic. Its really too bad a “micro-burst” wind shear event didn’t hit that stage like it did at that Canadian music festival last summer…

    Rick, you do know the difference between disliking policies pursued by representatives elected by the majority of your voting fellow-citizens and wishing harm on those elected representatives, don’t you? I don’t like you injecting your politics in places where they are completely irrelevant, but I live with it without complaint to the moderators. But I hope they’ll consider removing your recent comment; I think it has crossed a line.

    Opry Alert! The good news is tonight’s Opry will feature Trace Adkins and Joey+Rory! The bad news is it will also feature Luke Bryan and Gloriana. I guess this is kind of like a musical karma balancing act! (lol)

    Schedule: http://www.opry.com/shows/ThisWeek.html

    Listen Online: http://www.wsmonline.com/

    PS – If you don’t have these two links “bookmarked” in your web browser, shame on you!

    Poor Brody, you just can’t win. The original review wasn’t even that negative! Perhaps if this site just ignores that particular artist, there will be more informed, rational and objective comments, and way less pussyfooting in articles. I thought Jim’s review was horrifically cautious, well beyond balanced and into timid. Not the sort of review I have learned to love from this site, but then again the selective vitriol that came out in the comments was well off the ridicu-meter too. Not what I want from this site (want more Corbreports! want more interviews! want more reviews of non-radio stuff! want more forgotten artists!) Hang in there – I still hit the site several times a day, so imo you all are doing something more than right. Cheers!

    I realize the review isn’t completely negative. But in he news here, it is introduced as someone being “less than impressed.” Therefore, if you don’t open the review, you just assume it is a negative review. This is common for Carrie on this site imo. I have never read someone was “very impressed” with a Carrie concert or album.
    Same thing happened when Play On was released. This site posted a couple links to negative reviews rather than positive reviews.

    This is not POLITICAL blog on politics…Richard should have the name “nixon” on his ass tattooed for being a douche-bag. Quit harping Obama and walk along with pride and honor for a change. Geez…

    Carrie Underwood is great. She’s got a great live voice and I’m sure her concert was beyond exceptional. I can’t wait for her to come back on American Idol this year (maybe Idol Gives Back). She would sure liven up the stage and show a few of these contestants how it’s done.
    I don’t get too bothered when there are negative opinions about Carrie (although I definitely step in to defend her). But, I always realize that for every negative post, there will be a positive one. There are way more positives than negatives anyway, and that makes me smile.

    Dan: The last time Carrie was on American Idol they had to bring George Micheal on later to show how the song should have been sung.

    …that’s rather a compliment, stormy. there are not that many vocalists of his quality out there.

    Carrie was much better Stormy.

    And sorry Brody for the “Be objective” comment. It wasn’t directed at you personally. More so toward the site as a whole. Looking back at that comment, it seems that it comes across kind of rude.
