“The sun’ll come out tomorrow..
bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow there’ll be sun…..”
We need Spring quick or Nashville may be consumed by doom and gloom … Why, you might ask … let me count the ways:
The only coach the NFL Titans has ever had has beamed up ... the team has no real QB and now no coach..
CD sales are in the toilet …The city lost its longtime favorite morning show, Gerry House ... GH quit.
Nashville kids have gone to school only a few times this year due to snow and cold weather
Alan Jackson doesn’t have a record deal
The “American Idol” Nashville night was embarrassing with a cartoon-voiced gal, a dysfunctional duo, a siren mouth and a pageant girl who sang “Dream On” with Tyler (that was good, but Nashville auditions?)
2011 … whoa … Country Strong was DOA at the box office … Fire killed all of Charlie Daniels’ prized horses ... enough … UNCLEEE
“The sun needs to come out tomorrow” soon … in the Bonnie Tyler song …We need a hero! Someone give us some hope!
The first month of the new year has gone by and what have we done? Not much, but things will pick up with the stroke of February …The Super Bowl, The Daytona 500, Grammys, Oscars, ACM noms, Valentine’s Day … Country music stars are all over in and around those dates … So Feb should pick up our collective spirits..
Jimmy Buffet spreading cheer during THEIR Summer down under even came close to killing himself in a stage fall.
Okay ... this is going to get better … Maybe the Packers win the Super Bowl? G Paltrow sings on the Oscars and slays that audience. The Grammys make Miranda and Lady A their royalty.
Much potential in February. New CDs, great tours for everyone. Let’s hope some smart folks will figure out how to overcome this CD malaise. We need some new stars that excite and create passion. Spring is rebirth … I’ve never been more ready to put my feet in the sand ... go to a great outdoor concert … Hurry, Spring Break ... (Luke Bryan playing Panama City again)…..
