    Knight’s “Enough Rope” is really under-rated I think. It’s rocking for sure, but its quieter tunes (enough rope, williams son) will easily measure up well against the greats from his first couple of albums.

    I thought it was really cool how the incorporated Martina into that video, even adding applause when she came out …

    Didn’t the Bellamy Brothers song do a lot better on the pop charts than # 21? I remember that song was played a lot on the rock/pop stations I listened to on the radio back then. Hmmmm….

    Slow news day, so that means its time for:
    “Opry Heads Up!”: Artists worth hearing this weekend:
    Friday: The Wrights, The Steeldrivers, Terri Clark, and (?)Bart Millard(?)
    Saturday: Patty Loveless, Danielle Peck, Hal Ketchum, Nanci Griffith (Its not a GAC “Opry Live” show)

    Trace Adkins can be pretty amazing when he wraps his voice around the right material. Good stuff indeed.

    Couldn’t agree more on Trace Adkins!

    Rick: “Let Your Love Flow” was a #1 pop hit, #21 country, #2 AC.

    “Let You Love Flow” was actually a bit of an anomaly for the Bellamy Brothers.

    It was more a pop hit (huge) than a Country hit; and it was not written by either of the brothers.

    Actually David Bellamy is an excellent and underrated songwriter; one who as a teenager penned the hit recorded by Jim Stafford called “Spiders and Snakes.”

    How has Trace Adkins not been mentioned in the category of male vocalist of the year?

    I wish I’d picked up Peyton Hillis off the free agent list in my fantasty football league. Nice to see he’s got good taste in tunes.

    Earthshaking Country News Alert! (from CMT.com’s New Section):

    “Julianne Hough Not Returning to Dancing With the Stars Next Season” – OMG!!!!! November 21, 2008

    Julianne Hough will not return to Dancing With the Stars when the next season begins in May, she said Thursday (Nov. 20) in an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his syndicated radio show. “I really, really want to focus on the music and, you know, kind of be taken seriously a little bit,” she said. Hough, who has a record deal with Mercury Nashville, won the top prize on the show in seasons four (with Apolo Anton Ohno) and five (Helio Castroneves), but was eliminated early in season six (with Adam Carolla). She and partner Cody Linley were dismissed on Tuesday night (Nov. 18) from season seven. However, Hough said she may return to the series in the fall of 2009.”

    Rick’s rag: I personally think that since Julianne’s “country music career” is rooted mostly in her being a regular on “Dancing With The Stars”, it is foolhardy for her to leave the show! She is abandoning her fan base in order to “you know, kind of be taken seriously a little bit”. Well Julianne is taken very seriously by her “Dancing With The Stars” faithful fans while Top 40 radio listeners think of her mostly as the gal on the chewing gum TV commercial. Taylor Swift would never make such a counter productive career decision…..

    I’m with you on Enough Rope, Kelly. I think the title track is one of my favorite songs by anyone.

    But have you heard Julianne sing? She is a great singer. See how high she reaches in “Hallelujah Song”. She’s much better than some other country artists.

    That Trace Adkins track is stunning

    How could such a pretty song “let your love flow,” be sold to a Toyota commercial? All you Toyota lovers should look up Admiral Toyoda (same as Toyota). I believe he was a WWII admiral in Japan.

    I like the Hal Ketchum (with Lisa Brokop) version of “Let Your Love Flow” better than the original.
