Ok, that was shameless self promotion, but someone's gotta do it. I'm proud to say I am out tonite with a great local country band, the Lost Cantina Band, and when I play with them, I am the LOST part but I have fun. Join us
I sat down to my computer and was thinking about what I wanted to write about today when my buddy Darius Rucker posted a video and said, "Hey Little Big Town, thanks for letting me be part of this." So of course I had to check it out.
It's close to that time of year when the county fairs start coming into town. I always enjoy the fairs for some great rides, games and all the great fair food. But what I think I enjoy the most is the great country music you can enjoy whether it be local or national acts.
2012 is a big year for big country Shows in the Albany Area. We have already had Rascal Flatts, Billy Currington, Zac Brown Band and Sugarland in town. Next Week is Brad Paisley's "Virtual Reality Tour". July 7th will bring us CountryFest 2012. August 19th will see Toby Keith and Brantley Gilbert at SPAC and we will end the year with Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" Tour at the Times Union Center on December 4th.
I could really use your help my friends. As you know it is pretty hard to be objective when it comes to a person's children. I'd like your objective opinion on my oldest son, Ryan. He taught himself the guitar and to sing. I will admit that when he began the singing was more than a little rough but he has come a long way with it. He has worked hard and now that I actually have a recording of him I'd love to get your opinion on it.
Of the new crop of country singers that have jumped onto the scene over the past two years I am a big fan of Easton Corbin. He has a traditional country sound that reminds a lot of country music fans of a young George Strait.
I answer the phones a lot during my afternoon show on 1077 'GNA between 3 and 7pm weekdays. There are always many requests from you awesome listeners coming in. Brent Anderson's debut hit "Amy's Song" is one that I am getting a lot these days.
Miranda Lambert had a great 2011, and was our 2011 Countryfest headliner at 1077 'GNA! We all know she's full of sass and spark withtunes like "Gunpowder and Lea" and "Kerosene" as well as her last hit "Baggage Claim."
