    those two are touring together (playing date here in dallas soon with chris knight, even). I wonder if they have been performing this in their live-set?

    Justin Townes Earl is the man. Too bad he will never get played on the radio.

    I like what I’ve heard from Dawn Landes. I discovered her thanks to Pandora.

    Yay for Miranda!!! Way to go girl! I saw her live last night on Brad Paisley’s tour and she was just so excited and the whole audience was up on their feet singing along with her. Love her and this song! Congrats!! :)

    Now we just have to wait for her to take the #1 spot on the Billboard chart… hopefully not too long!

    The Miranda Lambert news just made my day!!!! She has waited too long for this. “White Liar” is the perfect song to be her first #1. The tide is finally turning in her favor. I cannot wait to hear what her next single is going to be!

    Darn, I was so hoping that spot on the GQ list would go to Scott Taylor rather than JTE! I suspect political profiling by those Obamavoter weenies on the GQ staff may be in play…

    Gosh, does “T Bone” only work with Obamavoter types? I always assumed the T in “T Bone” was a reference to a type of steak but now I’m starting to think it may stand for “Tool” or maybe even “Trotsky-ite”. Hmm…

    What classic pop song would I like to hear covered by a country artist? I know! I’d like to hear Buck Owens sing the Beatles song “Act Naturally”! (lol)

    Great to hear JTE cover that old Chet Atkins/Dolly Parton chestnut, a song I’ve always loved.
