If you are at work on Tuesday when Oprah comes on, make sure you have your DVD or TIVO (or whatever all those things are) set to ‘start’. Because country music fans aren’t going to want to miss this one. It’s Oprah’s country special, and she will have Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Darius Rucker and Kenny Chesney joining her for the afternoon.
A press release from Universal said the show airs on April 14, and features “exclusive performances and revealing interviews. It’s an hour of spirited music, conversation and laughter you won’t want to miss.”
Usually when we see a country artist on a talk show, they don’t get to talk. They’re the musical act for the show, they get part of the last five minutes, then a quick thank you and a pat on the back form Jay Leno, David Letterman, or whoever the host of that particular show might be.
This is going to be different, and it’s going to be great! We’ll actually get to see our favorite country artists on the sofa talking with the host, laughing, and having a good time! I’m anxious to see the show, and will definitely record this one so I can see it again later.
We recently had Carrie on American Idol, Kellie was there just last week; Rascal Flatts will be on Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday, and of course we had a whole bunch of artists last Sunday (April 5) for the ACM awards. And in May we get the special to honor George Strait as the Artist of the Decade. If they keep this up, I just might want to retire to sit home and watch television 24 hours a day.

I’m still working out of anywhere but the office. Right now, I need to head to the boss’s house and find out if I’m working from there, with the rest of the staff, or if I’m going to come home and try to work from here. We still don’t know when we’ll be allowed back in our building. (See my April 10 post for details). Hopefully we’ll get back in there soon.
That’s all for now. I’ll talk to you soon. Write when you have a minute! And, don’t forget to watch television this week!
