I woke up early this morning to review a Reba McEntire Valentine's Day album for CST, and I was surprised to learn that she covered Restless Heart's "I'll Still Be Loving You." It was different to hear a female spin on the song, and I wonder if she'll release it on any studio albums. Can you believe it's been 21 years since it went to No. 1 for Restless Heart?
Anyone who was hoping to watch the Johnny Cash tribute concert from Folsom Prison on the Internet must be disappointed today. The show was cancelled, but I have a hard time believing the inmates were disappointed. Do you think today's inmates listen to the same artists, i.e. Cash, as their predecessors from 40 years ago. Maybe they do, since Cash seems to transcend time, tastes and demographics.
I used to watch Crook & Chase, and it's cool that they're going to be back on television again. But has anyone ever seen this RFD-TV? I think I'd be addicted to the channel if I ever found it on my cable plan. I have Comcast, but don't know where it is. If you do, let me know.
Splits from record labels are nothing new in the music industry, but it was sad to see traditionalists Ray Scott and Lance Miller and Warner Nashville part ways. Scott's debut album was unique and traditional, it featured the tongue-in-cheek "My Kind of Music", and Scott stood out from the pack with his deep, deep baritone.
Miller's career never seemed to get off the ground after releasing a couple of singles. Hopefully, he'll bounce back with a new label.
