I don’t think I’ve ever had anything on Country’s Chatter about the Dixie Chicks. Oh, perhaps a very brief mention of their little feud with Toby Keith, who I absolutely love. But other than, I never really talked about them. I got an e-mail from Andrew Griffin, editor for Red Dirt Reporter.

I have always liked Dwight Yoakam. Actually, I’ve always liked country music, and Dwight Yoakam is part of the reason why. I can’t really think about country music without songs like “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere,” “Act Naturally,” and “Little Sister” coming to mind. But these days, Dwight might find himself singing just a little [...]Tags: Canada, churchill down race track, country, Dwight, Dwight Yoakam, Havelock Country, havelock country jamboree, Ky., Louisville, Miles, music, Nashville, Okla., snook texas, tax, Texas, Wash.

I am really late with this one. You all probably remember the CMIL Benefit for City of Hope, that was held at The Rutledge in Nashville. That was nearly two weeks ago. There were 10 fantastic artists on stage that night, and I promised that even though it would take me a little while, I [...]Tags: Adam, Adam Gregory, Adam Gregory Sings, Alberta, Caitlin Lynn, Canada, Carter Twins, City, country, country music performer, Duncan, Edmonton, edmonton alberta canada, God, Gregory, Gwen Sebastian, Hope, Jason Jones, Jesse Lee, Johnny Bulford, Jon Walker, mallary hope, Matt, matt stillwell, music, Nashville, quot, time, U.S.
I really love listening to new artists. A lot of times I’ll get an e-mail from someone who just started singing country music, or from someone who just put together a CD, and they want me to listen to it. Sometimes I just kind of find these new artists … or as in the case [...]Tags: Alberta, Bentley, Calgary, Canada, country, country crooner, country music scene, Craig, Craig Moritz, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, George Canyon, gritty dirt band, Jason Rogers, lot, Mexico, music, MySpace, Nashville, nitty gritty dirt band, Northeast Tennessee, page, Sara Evans, The Way, Toby Keith, Tom McKillip
