    One of the comments on the Johnny Cash video: “You almost don’t notice it’s been remixed.” Come again? Did the original song feature someone someone beating a drum machine to death with a typewriter and I never noticed it? God help us if this is how the next generation of music fans gets introduced to Johnny Cash.

    Ha ha ha. “Someone beating a drum machine to death with a typewriter.” Genius! Genius, I tell you.

    Given that the next generation of music fans have made someone as talentless as Taylor Swift a star, I don’t hold out too much of them discovering Johnny Cash.

    Not many songs sound good next to The Randall Knife.

    Speaking of Taylor Swift, I picked up this tidbit at “AllAboutCountry.com” tonight:
    “Taylor Swift makes her big-screen debut in two movies set for release in the coming months. On
    February 27th, she’ll make a cameo in “The Jonas Brother’s 3D Concert Experience” and on April 10th, she’s in “Hannah Montana: The Movie”. (Rick’s snark: Taylor has targeted her core audience with these two films. Taylor should get a Disney Channel Show going right now!)
    And:
    “And then on March 20th, Taylor performs a sold-out show (71,000-seats) at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.” (Rick’s snark: Damn! Somehow I was hoping Texans would be above all this foolishness. I guess pre-tweens, tweenypoppers, and teen girls are alike everywhere in the US when it comes to have a pop culture lemming mentality. Great….)

    Although Kasey and Shane cleaned up at the Golden Guitar Awards the winner of “Best Female Country Artist” was Catherine Britt. Catherine won for “Little Wildflower”, her Brett Beavers produced Nashville swan song album she completed just before heading back home to Australia. I don’t much care for “Little Wildflower” but I’m glad it finally brought Catherine an award.

    I really hope Ashton Shepherd has expanded the stylistic and subject matter range of her new songs as repetitive themes and styles were my only issue with “Sounds So Good”. I love Ashton’s voice and vocal style, but without great songs to sing she won’t get much further in her career. A great co-writer like Liz Rose would be welcomed here.

    I wondered when Taylor would start making movies. I just don’t get it, but I’m too old I guess.

    Taylor has her own agenda. Like her album says, “She’s fearless”, not a nervous bone in her body. She doesn’t care that she can’t sing..she’s going to do what she’s going to do. I don’t like her music..but gotta give her credit for her “take on the world” attitude.
