Re: “Cage the Elephant Plays 'Come a Little Closer' and 'Take It or Leave It' on Kimmel

The link seems to be down. And by the way how come nothing about Lincoln leaving the band? Not to take the spotlight off CTE but how about those Edmonton, KY southern rock head bangers, Black Stone Cherry, having one of their songs covered and that tune charting really high on the Country Pop charts? Oh Nashville Cream when will you come visit our green acres? Or have you and we didn't know? You should come to Jambodians....really. We promise to be nice.

Re: “Love/Hate Mail, Dec. 20, 2012

Everybody wants to play in Nashville. I just read through that list, "The 2012 Rock 'n' Roll Poll" (Dec. 6), and didn't see one band that has played in my little town just a mere 60 miles up I-65. Why is that? Please don't hide behind that bullshit there's no place to play, because that's exactly what it is: bullshit. So can they not get a local or what? Maybe just maybe they are Nashville local bands. You know just locals. And agree wholeheartedly with
Rosemary Haskins, artist, producer, engineer at WaterWorks Entertainment Studios, Nashville. Who are those guys?

Re: “This year's CMA Music Fest may be the coming-out party for a new breed of country musician

Does that man have a baseball cap on? Why yes he does. OMG is that a world famous Bluegrass picker on stage with him playing an electric guitar? Is that a well known punk rock player from days gone by on the bass with him too? Holy cow Martha it is.

That burning sensation means it's Ned Van Go....ah Nashville's bastard sons.
Love Ya Geoffrey...you must be in love or something we forgive you.

Re: “This year's CMA Music Fest may be the coming-out party for a new breed of country musician

Geoffrey what's happened to you. It's like that scene in the Stepford Wives. Who are you? Baseball caps are a symbol of rebellion? Originality would be a rebellion. It's like the norms for Glam Rock have hit country music. Like you gotta dress the part. Stick a sock down your spandex so people think you have a big cock. People will always dress after the fashion of celebrity. That's a fact. However, to separate musicians on the basis of what they wear as to wither or not they are leaders in their genre is absolutely INSANE. What's Guy Clark wearing these days? You know every time I see Sam Bush on stage he's wearing a t-shirt. Why because it's FUNCTIONAL meaning it's hot on stage. And just so you know my boss has always worn a baseball cap on stage and T-shirt. He doesn't dip his toe into the blue collar issues either. He jumps in the water. The very thing that always separated country music from pop bullshit is it's ability to connect to the heart of person not just their topical nonsense. 'People want to escape.." People want connection to other humans and they want to know they aren't alone in their struggle. That's great music. That is ART.

From the camp of Ned Van Go--Nashville's bastard sons.
