Get Well, Randy Travis ... Country Needs You!!
July 12, 2013
He came to the rescue once when Country music needed him. The old-fashioned retro sound of Travis was just what the world needed. He opened so many doors for what would become a Country explosion.
He was a young clone of George Jones -- in more ways now that we choose to see. Like George did, he now battles with a life-and-death situation. As I write this, we know very little what is going on in that Plano, TX hospital. We only hope for the first promising report. Randy had a bright future. Many gigs, a few pending movie deals. The lights were bright. His tour bus is ready and parked just outside the Baylor hospital door. We looked forward to him getting in and riding to the next stage. God's speed, Randy Travis!
One of the biggest weekend's ever for Country music live performances! Look around North America: You can't hardly find a scalper ticket for Luke Bryan and FGL in Charlotte and Atlanta. They could be playing stadiums and get it done.
Aldean at Fenway Park Boston for two nights ... huge statement of Country's popularity..
Taylor Swift at Metlife Stadium Saturday across the river from NYC.
Kenny, Tim and Chicks in Regina, SK Canada ... Fort Loramie, Ohio -- Paisley and Dierks and Aldean ... Hodag Country Festival in Rhinelander, WI -- Big and Rich, Charlie Daniels, lots of others...
Big time of the year for Country ... some new music out there ... "Radio" by Darius Rucker one of many new hot ones..
Luke Bryan celebrating nine million tracks ... four million sold this week ... this guy is rolling!
Jake Owen should know better than to race real NASCAR drivers on GoKarts! They are crazier than a Taylor Swift Fan!
She does seem to make it easy, but you know it's not having that kind of fame at ANY age! Look at that idiot Justin Bieber! And too many others to name. Miley seems lost ... Taylor really is amazing! 23? Wow.
