    Carrie Rodriguez is the human embodiment of the non-ironic form of Awesome.

    Gosh Stormy, you and I kinda, sorta agree about Carrie Rodriguez! Crikey! (lol)

    Wow, this must be family based bluegrass band break-up month! First it was the Cherryholmes and now the Peasall Sisters! And just when the Peasall’s are getting promoted by the movie “True Grit”. Darn. I think it was about this time last year The Lovell Sisters split up as well. What’s up with that?

    I don’t care if Miranda Lambert performs on the Grammy Awards show. I DO care that she will be on stage at Dierks Bentley’s Troubadour Club gig the night before the Grammy’s so I can see her up close! (lol) The more of Dierks’ friends that show up for that gig the better!

    Is Davy Jay Sparrow related to Captain Jack Sparrow? Hmm…

    Rick, I am super jealous you’re able to go to the Troubadour Club show. It’s likely to be an awesome night. Being across the country sucks…

    Back to the roundup … I hope Lady A puts out a CD I’ll actually want to spend money on.

    @Rick – I know. I am saddened by Cherryholmes and the Peasall sisters. Both were truly unique and talented acts. A shame.
