    I’m glad to see Miss Leslie was able to raise enough funds to record a new album. I can’t wait to hear the snippets on Amazon when it’s released so I can cherry pick the keepers! Go Miss Leslie!

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry features The Charlie Daniels Band, The Henningsens, The Black Lillies, Larry Gatlin, Greg Bates and assorted “Opry Legends”. Grade: B
    Schedule: http://www.opry.com/shows/ThisWeek.html
    Tomorrow night the new Wednesday Night Opry will go head to head in a radio slugfest with Music City Roots! The tension is killing me! (lol)

    I’ll have to check out the new music from Phoebe Hunt and Bill Kirchen. I’d much rather see them perform live though…

    Those old yodeling tunes were a nice change of pace! They should have included a Kacey Musgraves yodel song off her teeny bopper era album “Wanted One Good Cowboy” just for the heck of it!
