You know what would be great is if at some point in the tour – say we’re in a room or on his bus or somethin’ – and I say somethin’ that really irritates him and [George] says to me, ‘You get your ass out of here. You heard me.’ Just like he does on [the movie] Pure Country. ●
– – Blake Shelton on his upcoming tour with George Strait.
It’s servin’ a purpose. It’s my economic stimulus plan. I think that people that don’t have money should try really, really hard to marry people that do. [That would] solve all our problems. ●
– – Trace Adkins on the importance of “Marry for Money.”
… the lyrics are a little more mature… there’s not an ounce of that haven’t-I-heard-this-before déjà vu… well-crafted stories reveling in his modern bluegrass sound ●
– – Alison Bonaguro on Feel That Fire. Did we listen to the same album?
That’s probably the next big milestone Eddie and I would like to accomplish is to become members of the Grand Ole Opry. Eddie’s had a lot of history there with his father growing up. His dad was a big dreamer of playing the Opry and making it big in the business, so Eddie’s really hoping to accomplish that, being a member. ●

If you listen to recordings from the 80s and earlier, you can hear flaws in recorded voices. Especially pre-1960, you can hear flaws in recorded instruments. But you won’t hear it on Top 40 radio today. It’s altered digitally. BOOM! Perfect Recording.
Here’s my beef: We give up our humanity when we give up our imperfections. ●
– – Miss Leslie makes the case for imperfection.
I knew I wanted the guy who was doing Keith Urban’s records. He makes a record that is true to the artist he is working with. Rascal Flatts has a totally different sound than Keith Urban, and that sounds totally different from Faith Hill. He doesn’t put out Dann Huff records. ●
– – As long as the artist he’s working with is already predisposed to over-the-top pop production. Pat Green speaking, by the way, which is sadly not surprising.
I’m sort of like a country rapper, with a melody. I think we can look over on the rap charts and see that there’s a message in there — and people are still looking for a message. The rappers are doing something different. How long will it take us in the country field to do that? ●
