Usually when I’m telling an entertainer to "Get Well Soon," I have some idea what’s wrong with them. It’s usually something like tonsil problems, cold, flu, virus … But tonight I need to say "Get Well Soon" to Joe Nichols, and I really don’t know what’s wrong with him.
According to Jenny Bohler, Joe’s publicist, he will be taking the rest of the year off for medical reasons. He has one concert scheduled for Mt. Laurel, N.J. on Nov. 22, and it looks like that is the only one he will need cancel, since the other two listed on his web site are for early in 2009.
Whatever is going on, I hope it isn’t too serious. Seems we don’t hear enough from Joe anyway, and we sure don’t need him out of sight for too long.
Faith Hill is singing up a storm (a snow storm perhaps) – and getting ready for Christmas. Faith will have a PBS Christmas performance on Nov. 27. Check your local listings for the time, because I’m sure this will be a great show. Faith is is scheduled to sing Joy to the World, What Child is This? Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, O Come, All ye Faithful, Holly Jolly Christmas, Away in a Manger, O Holy Night, Winter Wonderland, Silent Night, Holy Night, Where Are You, Christmas, a Baby Changes Everything, and Little Drummer Boy.
The description of the book, at amazon.com, reads like this: Momma loves her little son, there’s nothing more so true…" Grammy Award winning John Carter Cash creates a lyrical painting based on the intimate words his mother, June Carter Cash, shared with him as a child. Captured in the exquisite Americana art of illustrator Marc Burckhardt, an expression of love between mother and son comes to life in vibrant simplicity.
From the farthest shores to the deepest oceans, a mother’s love for her child is without bounds. Little ones will be swept away on a magical adventure over mountains and sky scrapers and through forests and streams in this tender and joyful celebration of the enduring bond between mother and child.
Trisha Yearwood has a new furry friend in her new video. I love that little red "thing" (I never was sure what Elmo was supposed to be, but he’s cute). The video has Elmo, Rosita and Super Grover, and is to help kids learn about love, emotion and friendship.
Along with Trisha (and the little puppet people), John Legend and R.E.M. will also be apart of the new Elmo DVD, called "Elmo Loves You." The DVD is supposed to be released for Valentine’s Day 2009.
Still is Still Moving had this picture of our next President of the United States on their web site (no, not that guy, the one on the left).
The picture is from the 2005 Farm Aid, which was held in Illinois. Willie Nelson fans will love this site. It’s one that I stumbled on some time ago when I was checking tour dates for different artists. This site is full of photographs, schedules, and just about anything Willie fans would want to know.
Rascal Flatts and Faith Hill will be part of Christmas in Rockefeller Center, airing on NBC Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. Other performers scheduled for the show include Jonas Brothers, Beyonce and David Cook.
Al Roker is scheduled to host the show, and other celebrities who will appeaqr include Rosie O’Donnell, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr., and Solange Knowles (Beyonce’s sister).
That’ll do it for this time. You guys take care, write when you can, and enjoy getting ready for your holidays! Talk to you all tomorrow.
