  • "All dead white boys say, 'God is good.' "

* Paramore's Hayley Williams talks to EW about rockin' moms, decoupage and how her band and Iron and Wine do not share the same demographic. Also, about their Nashville-recorded new album: "I didn't want to make a record about how hard it is to have cameras follow you around, or how hard it is to be away from home for a year, because that's not what people relate to. I don't want to get onstage and whine about rock star problems in front of a bunch of people the same age as me."

* Speaking of moms, take your mama to a participating Outback Steakhouse on Mother's Day and she'll get a CD sampler from UMG Nashville, which "includes full tracks from Holly Williams, David Nail and Ryan Bingham as well as song samples from Sugarland, Billy Currington, Lee Ann Womack and Jamey Johnson." Guess they're not kidding about the "sampler" part. Mom also gets a $10 Outback coupon, and everybody gets a $2 coupon good toward UMG CDs.

* This week's print edition says that the CD release show for The Tits is at The End tonight. Woops! It's at The Basement. JEFF the Brotherhood and Screaming Females play The End.

* Win a trip to Nashville. Oh, wait.

* Speaking of trips, banjoist Abigail Washburn has been traveling to China since 1997, and her new EP, Afterquake, marks the one-year anniversary of the earthquake in Sichuan province with a mix of field recordings and Chinese and American traditional music. (More at Spinner.)
