eric c Eric Church will be performing at the Inaugural Ball for the North Carolina Governor-elect, Beverly Perdue, on Jan. 9. The event will be held at the state capitol in Raleigh. Eric will sing “Carolina,” the title track from his new album, which will be released on Mach 24.

Eric and Katherine Blasingame were married on Jan. 8, 2008, in Blowing Rock. N.C. Now he will be back in North Carolina a day after his first wedding anniversary. Wonder if they will have an opportunity to run up to Blowing Rock for an anniversary dinner.

Haven’t seen this video for a while – It’s Eric’s “Two Pink Lines.”

TSwift At just 19 years old, and with a whole lot of career still ahead of her – Taylor Swift ended 2008 as the over-all top selling artist of the year, with more than 4 million in total sales. Two of her albums, according to Nielsen SoundScan, were in the all-genre top 10. Very impressive, Taylor.

Taylor was the eighth most-played artist on the radio this year, and six of the top 10 were country artists (Taylor, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, George Strait and Alan Jackson) – according to Broadcast Dada Systems.

I have to run for now, but I’ll be back with more later. I hope your 2009 is off to a super start… Looking forward to hearing from you all soon.
