Yeah, I plan on doing that as soon as I can slow down and get off the road. I’m just as amazed as you are at the stuff I had the audacity to do (laugh). It would be interesting to do and a way to let my kids in on all the things going down. ●
– – Kris Kristofferson on writing a memoir. Can you imagine? I’d buy that book in a heartbeat.
“Titty’s Beer” is just hysterical. Initially, you think it’s about something else, but it’s about this guy who want to start a beer company. He finds out that it’s not the taste that will make it successful, but the name: Titty’s Beer. He sells them two at a time. He calls them a rack. “Whether you’re from the country or the big ole city/ One thing’s for sure, everybody loves titties.” It’s just fun, man! It’s a song that will put a smile on your face. It’s a play on words, and I just like stuff like that. I can’t wait to write something with Craig [Wiseman] on my own, but that’s something he wrote with Troy Gentry from Montgomery Gentry and Tim Nichols. It’s a fun song! ●
– – Colt Ford on this, uh, great song on his new record. You can tell it’s great because it’s full of boob jokes and Craig Wiseman and Troy Gentry were two of the writers on it.
I don’t think they should’ve dumped [Osama] in the ocean either. I’d have brought his head back to Washington D.C. and stuck it on a pike in the front yard of the White House. ●
– – In case you were wondering: Yeah, there’s a reason Trace Adkins isn’t President.
Last year, I walked away with the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album. And later on, I found out that I won it. ●
– – Steve Martin stage banter.
I am just so glad that we all got to see the day when Darryl Worley’s words came true. “And we vowed to get the ones behind bin Laden/Have you forgotten?” ●
– – Alison Bonaguro seems to think we rooted out the entire al Qaeda infrastructure (“the ones behind bin Laden”) by killing one guy.
Yeah, there are certain things [like cheating] that I probably won’t sing about. A lot of times it depends on how a song is written. I’m definitely not going to go and sing a song that condones certain things. But there’s been times, even on my first record, that I sang from the viewpoint of a homeless man on a song called, ‘I Had One One Time.’ ●
– – Josh Turner probably won’t sing a song that condones sinful behavior, even though he was super edgy that one time by recording a song that dared to empathize with a homeless person. Wild.
I’m working on it right now. I’m doing some work with Brad Paisley. I’ve been doing a lot of writing. Hopefully it’ll be out early next year. […] That’s the kind of country music I really love — the old-fashioned Jimmie Rodgers, Carter Family, Loretta Lynn kind of country music. It will be more old-fashioned than it will be new country. ●
– – The Sheryl Crow country album is on the way, and it sounds pretty promising.
All of the greatest artists in history aren’t country singers. Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix, etc., they’re music is good music, a.k.a., not country. It’s rock, but not only is rock a million times better than country, so is pop and R & B. ●
– – High school girl offers a not-so-bulletproof takedown of country music.
I like Waylon Jennings, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, and all of those people. I love country and western. ●
– – Sir Anthony Hopkins likes country! And fava beans.
Q: The thing you’ve always wanted to buy, but you’re just too embarrassed to?
A: Hot tub. Where I live in Oklahoma, it’s all ranchers. My friends are all cowboys and pretty rough guys. If I had a hot tub back there, I may as well have Richard Simmons come over and live with me. ●
– – Entertainment Weekly republished a 2008 interview with Blake Shelton in an apparent attempt to get GLAAD all riled up again.
Our management and booking agent are all very, very hugely tied into the country world. We’ve been in band meetings with management, and it’s been said, point blank, ‘We’re not changing what we do. If it works for us to go to these places and they like it, that’s what we’re going to do, but we decided, as a band, that this is what we do.’ We’re not a progressive jam band. We’re not a country band. ●
– – Grascal Danny Roberts on how the band stays true to its own traditional country-bluegrass style.
Probably the finest country singer I’ve ever heard. Period. ●
– – Trace Adkins on Lee Ann Womack.
