Man, Do I Miss Jerry Reed!

January 1, 2012

[amzn_product_inline asin=’B00137WUGG’] Son! I say Yeah!!! This video is amazing. I have a friend who grew up out in Utah in the 80s and 90s and hasn’t had a whole of exposure to classic country music. When I brought up Jerry Reed the other day, he’d never even heard of him. Now, my buddy is […]

JBuds J4 Rugged Metal In-Ear Earbuds Style Headphones

December 31, 2011

I came across these headphones when I forgot my earbuds on a trip and was stuck having to buy some in an airport store that specialized in headphones. My flight was only an hour long, and I have 5 or 6 different sets of earbuds lying around the house already, so I was looking to […]

Expanding The Classic Country Network

December 30, 2011

It’s funny when you find a classic country fan where you’d least expect it. Our family hosts a Christmas party every year for our kids’ friends, and this year one of the parents brought his mom who was visiting from Virginia. She’d been by the house a few times previously, but the night of the […]

To Beat The Devil – Kris’s Song About Johnny

December 29, 2011

[amzn_product_inline asin=’B00137X9VG’]I stumbled across this video the other day about one of my favorite Kris Kristofferson songs–“To Beat The Devil”. When we talk about the void of songwriting in today’s country music, here’s a song you can point back to and say, “who’s writing stuff like this?” Besides the interviews telling the great story (and […]

Hal Ketchum – Underated

September 8, 2011

Hal Ketchum’s “Five O’Clock World” showed up on one of my Pandora stations last night, and I was reminded how much I dig this guy. Very subtle, very smooth voice, and very¬†underrated. I know that “Small Town Saturday Night” is probably his best known and most successful radio hit, but I’m very partial to “Past […]

Alabama Infighting

October 11, 2010

I was looking at the Wikipedia article on Alabama (the band)¬†and was really shocked to hear that the band had sued drummer Mark Herdon a couple of years ago. They just don’t seem like the suing kind of guys, ya know? Reading up on their history, it sort of makes sense that the rest of […]

Stonewall Jackson, You, and a Dog Named Boo

October 8, 2010

I’ve been listening to my Tom T. Hall station on Pandora lately, and I have to say, it’s nothing short of outstanding! One of the best tunes I’ve heard crop up there is Stonewall Jackson‘s version of Lobo’s hit Me And You And A Dog Named Boo (also on iTunes). You know, I actually like […]

The Waylon Jennings Jean Jacket

January 4, 2010

See, here’s what I’m talking about. I love stuff like this. Granted, the folks over at People of Walmart posted this as something that is ridiculous, but I think it’s actually pretty cool. It’s acceptable to walk around Walmart wearing a jacket with the name of someone who drives a car around in circles but […]

New, and Hopefully Improved

January 4, 2010

After the long hiatus caused by some unfortunate incidents, I’m getting around to pulling the site back together. I’m actually a little glad I took some time away from it, because I want to do things a little differently this time around. Before everything here was lost, this blog was a little clinical in my […]
