    I love Corb Lund’s “superjacket”

    If the new Rory Feek and Tim Johnson-produced Merry Kidsmas album, which features only performances by kids from their perspective, does well, they hope to follow it up with an album of songs from a dog’s perspective.

    I thought this link was going to take me to the latest installment of Country California’s Fake News.

    Razor, when Joey + Rory did a concert out here in LA early this year (mostly for their label folks) Rory told of how he has written an entire “Dog Song” album. Rory sang a couple examples and they were very funny. I know that Paula W. has mentioned here that Rory also does those songs at his Songwriter’s Nights performances at the Bluebird Cafe. As good as they are I still prefer Anita Ree’s “Us Dogs Like Fishin’ Too” which is undoubtedly the best country song ever written from a dog’s perspective!

    Matt, thanks for that link to the Music Row article. If you look at the artist rosters of both labels before the merger, its like two groups of people stuck on separate icebergs that were rescued to the safety of the Titanic! Toby is the only big name, big selling artist on the list, so now he gets to keep even a larger label afloat on his shoulders. You’d think Toby would tire of playing Atlas to these sinking labels…..

    I’m sorry to hear about the current disbanding of the three Lovell Sisters as their album was one of the best of 2009 despite its lack of recognition. This is the exact reason why Jere Cherryholmes won’t allow Cia Leigh to date! (lol)
