  1. No problem! KB's actually from King George County, Virginia, which is right across the Potomac River from Southern Maryland, where I'm from. She ran for Congress in VA-1 in 2010, but it's a rural Republican district South of DC/north of Richmond, so she didn't win (my home district--MD-5, which is Steny Hoyer's seat--borders it to the east). I've been through that area many times over the years.
  2. I love John Anderson so much. And like one of them said, he is VERY underrated. I would think STN has to be on the list--I'm also hoping for "Seminole Wind".
  3. When I was 13 in 2002, I got the Cars' greatest hits CD, and I still have it and love it. "Shake It Up" is a huge favorite of mine;"Hello Again" is another, especially after a Nick at Nite promo used it in 2005, lol. I actually still buy CDs when I really want an artists work; I had an iPod for a long time, but when it stopped working/charging I never bothered to get a new one; I have a PC instead of a Mac so trying to deal with charging something that might not even be compatible with my computer--I didn't even want to deal with it. And I use streaming a lot now, anyway.
  4. I have actually heard some conflicting reports about his age--some say he was 75, others say he was 70. There's apparently some dispute about his actual year of birth (and given his signature ageless look, I can see why!). Either way, this shocked me, too. Eddie Money's wasn't as shocking, given the announcement about his condition a few weeks ago (although I didn't expect him to go QUITE this fast). But this? Yeah, it just feels so out of nowhere. 😢
  5. Once again, a few days behind on this, but here we go: #830: The Band Perry--“All Your Life” #829: Patsy Cline--“Faded Love” #828: John Anderson--“Swingin’” #827: Randy Houser--“We Went” #826: Emmylou Harris--“Two More Bottles of Wine” #825: Toby Keith--“He Ain’t Worth Missing” #824: Kenny Chesney--“Keg in the Closet” #823: Rhett Akins--“That Ain’t My Truck” #822: Jerry Lee Lewis--“What’s Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)” #821: Alabama--“Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)” http://www.countryuniverse.net/2019/09/13/a-country-music-conversation-sirius-top-1000-country-songs-of-all-time-830-821/
  6. Ric Ocasek, the lead singer of the Cars, has been found dead in his New York City town house. I've always loved that band. RIP. 😢 https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Ric-Ocasek-Cars-Singer-Dead-in-NY-at-75-560430391.html
  7. I just shared this in the country music thread, but I had to share it here, too: Last week, in preparation for the premiere of her new talk show, Kelly Clarkson had a Q&A live stream on YouTube, and the topic of country music came up, and she went OFF on the state of modern country music. Just an AWESOME rant. Start at 6:40 if you just want that part. (Also, for those who don't know: Kelly's husband is Reba McEntire's former stepson.)
  8. A little late on this: Kelly Clarkson goes OFF on modern country music. Start around 6:40 for her rant.
  9. I can't remember if this was posted here already or not, but just in case: There is word that new music from Adele is coming VERY soon (this article here doesn't say much, but I've seen November listed elsewhere). On one hand, I'm definitely sad to hear about her divorce, and hope she and her young son are happy. But on the other hand? Yeah, I'm a fan and I'm excited to hear her again. https://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/a28911300/adele-new-music-coming-report/
  10. Would you be surprised to find out that they are close friends and went to Columbia together? (Well, some might be, given Meghan's tendency to say everyone is her friend on The View, but Bari herself has said it, too, so...yeah, that tracks.)
  11. *waves to @Bastet* I had a similar moment before, earlier this year (which you had pointed out back then). I'll relax. 🙂 (BTW: The PBS documentary on country music by Ken Burns is almost here! Can't wait!) For those who are interested, Todd in the Shadows and Spectrum Pulse are great YouTube channels for reviews of current pop songs/albums. There are other reviewers out there, too, but those two are my favorites. Grady Smith is good, too, but he is primarily a country music reviewer.
  12. It does list Ariana as the lead artist on YouTube, which given the concept (supposed concept, whatever), kind of surprised me. Because I agree with you--you'd think they all would be listed as and perform as an ensemble.
  13. Oh no, I know you weren't! Just recently here I've discussed some more newer music, and some of the older posters' eyes glazed over a bit. I'm just trying to stay mindful of that, lol. There's plenty of new music I don't listen to in favor of older music myself. I admit to being sensitive and worrying sometimes about steering things in the wrong direction. My issue completely. 🙂 (I should say her last name is spelled "Del Rey", though, although she did originally spell the second part of it with an "a"--her birth name is Elizabeth Grant. 🙂 )
