Something Behind Brooks n Yearwood

Thursday, May 26, 2005

Well, look at this. It's official. Rumors for years
about "them." The questions in my e-mail now and then can
stop and the message boards now can focus on something
else. Garth and Trisha are engaged. Sure, its kinda a
big deal but not really, they have spent a lot of time
together and everyone pretty much knew it was going to
happen.

However, their is a backside story to this. Timing of the
whole proposal; I believe there is more to this than we
even know yet. Not about the actual marriage, but the
future plans for Garth Brooks.

Take a look at the last few months. A benefit
performance, followed by an appearance on the ACM Awards,
and also an appearance at the induction ceremony at the
Hall of Fame. Then last night's appearance with the
marriage proposal during the unveliing of the "Legends in
Bronze" event at the Buck Owens' Crystal Palace in
Bakersfield, CA .

All were made very public and I believe all for a
reason.
Remember the ACM award appearance? Did you notice his
reaction... the emotions could be seen in his eyes; he's
got the performance bug, bad.

Trisha Yearwood has a new single, so a new album in the
works, so the timing of this announcement is not just by
chance I don't think.

I believe that this boost is publicity is a preface, a
foreshadowing if you will, of what is to come in the very
near future. Don't be surprised one bit, and you can mark
my words, we will be seeing Garth Brooks on tour very soon
in some capacity. It may not be a world tour or some
large scale-every night of the week tour, but something is
bound to be in the works both from a tour and an album
prospective.

No, no inside sources or anything like that, but just the
feeling I have. We will see in the next coming weeks and
months if this feeling is correct.

Rascal Flatts To Perform "Bless The Broken Road" on American Idol

Rascal Flatts Bless The Broken Road Lyrics, Tickets, Fan Club Street Team and Official Website - News & Information

Well, Well, Well, what interesting news. A "country" band on American Idol. Well, wait a minute. That's where we are wrong. Rascal Flatts is in the country category, but not a country band. Don't believe me, listen to any of their albums. I don't hear country myself. Many others agree.

Sure, they may be talented and have some great songs. However, I would not refer to any of their music as country. They are a perfect fit for the American Idol audience and goes right to their target audience. The younger female.

Want more proof their not country? No problem at all... You don't see American Idol calling any of the real country music artists in the top 10 this week do you?

Think about it, it is great to love all music, in which I do, but give credit where credit is due to true country music artists and groups, even if it is contemporary country or the most traditional country. Rascal Flatts doesn't fit in those categories. They know it, but certainly won't admit it anytime soon.

What you think? You can always e-mail me or post a comment below this post.

I'm Back

Ok, its been awhile since I have posted, but I actually forgot about writing here and then today I felt like I was missing something. The blog was it. So, keep looking here for thoughts and information from me.

If you haven't checked out the website lately, there is a feature article on Larry the Cable Guy posted which I am quiet proud of writing. So, take the time to go the website and check it out. Also, today a few new reviews have been posted. There even more in the works, but I wanted to get a few up so there was something there.

Anyway, check out the website http://www.countrymusicalive.com and I also have something else on my mind that I will post in another segment.
