    Don’t forget, O Brother became Lost Highway’s first album after it had already sold about a million for Mercury.

    Trailer’s Doppelgangers earns a solid “5 Hoots” for the Shooter Jennings entry alone! (lol) Its right up there with Dwight Yoakam and Gollum among the classics. Has Yoda ever been used in one of the doppelganger features? Hmm…

    I don’t use iTunes BUT Amos Lee does have the song “El Camino” available for a freebie download at Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/El-Camino/dp/B004HRJ0H6/ref=sr_1_46?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1295976396&sr=1-46

    Wanda Jackson did shows here in LA both Sunday and Monday nights but the after-market ticket prices were too steep. Well that and the fact the typical volume level in the El Rey Theater causes your ears to bleed and with Jack White leading the band it could have been even louder! Crikey! I must say I am curious to hear Wanda’s take on the naughty Andrews Sisters hit “Drinking Rum and Coca-cola” about working girls down Trinidad way in the 1940’s.

    I’ll admit I can’t give Steel Magnolia a fair shake as their creation as a duo was just so contrived. Its like taking two American Idol finalists and putting them together for commercial purposes. Ugh. On the other hand Thompson Square was on the Opry last Saturday night and they slowed their current radio single down and totally twanged it up! Good stuff.

    I havent had a chance to see CK’s live show yet, but I’m loving the ‘House Rules’ album.

    Well, country artists whom you might even like– from Marty Stuart to Patty Loveless to Alan Jackson–recognize Steve Earle’s great talent.

    Wynonna Judd on her debut novel: “She (main character Destiny Hart) has the same ambition and passion for music I did at that age.”

    me: any time the judds do anything but music, it is just a complete turd.

    I’ve spent the last three days listening to the album over and over. More albums should be recorded in 5 days like this one. Too many cooks, etc.
