    From whence shall Willie draw his power now?

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Classic Country Opry will spotlight John “Swingin'” Anderson and the other guests include David Frizzell (well, what’s left of his vocal chords anyway) with Shelley West, Chris Young, Rhett Akins (does he still perform?), and is hosted by “Mr. Conway Twitty/Elvis Light” himself T.G. Sheppard. Should be a fun show!

    Speaking of Nashville Flood Relief Videos, the Victoria Banks effort featured at Ken’s “That Nashville Sound” is very commendable! It seems Nashville’s Canadian imports truly love the town as demonstrated by the presence of Victoria herself (of course), Lisa Brokop (and her husband), George Canyon, Michelle Wright (who still looks great!), and most likely other Canadian artists featured whom I don’t know who they are! Noeller, any help pointing out other Canadian participants would be appreciated!

    If Ryan Shupe’s new album contains a lot of fun, unique songs like “Banjo Boy”, I might have to check it out! (Hey, how about a give-away contest?! lol)

    Trailer’s album covers rate 3 Hoots today! My favorite is the Angela Easterling cover due to its accuracy. Who is the “Monster of Suck” as I have no idea who any of those guys are? Hmm…

    Good to see LeDoux honoured. He truly personified the ‘Cowboy up’ lifestyle.

    Damn! And all this time I said I’d cut my hair when Willie Nelson did, and now look what he’s done! Thanks a LOT!
