Yes, Please! More Of These Two!

Let me start by saying,  I am not a huge Idol Fan... or reality singing shows in general.  But they do serve a purpose!

For some of these artists, these shows are the only way to catapult them into the spotlight.  

Either way, if this is the result, LET'S GO!!!   Last night, Idol 20 year reunion.  I was excited to see Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina in some capacity.

I caught Scotty... a few bars in while flipping thru and then Lauren joined him.  What a great performance!  I'm all here for hearing more of these two together...

The cover above was great but the original is still one of the best from Keith Whitley...

 Well Thursday Morning... Scott & Sarah with Lang were talking about how 9% of folks who attend outdoor festivals go enjoy one another's intimate company in the porta-potty.  They mentioned a shirt.   It took me most of the day to create it, but would you wear it?

Garth Brooks Bar Name?

Thursday on the air, I asked WQMX Listeners to speculate and guess the name of Garth's New Bar coming to Lower Broadway.

There was an overwhelming winner...  Low Places or Friends in Low Places.  

Some of the other entries provided were:  Dive Bar, AHTBA (American Honky Tonk Bar Association), ThunderRolls, Rodeo Bar, Sevens, B double E double R U-N, and Garth's Bar - B- Q and Trisha's Country Kitchen!   All were great and probably could all work for Garth's New Bar Name.  

The one that was entered that I don't see Garth using was...  BAR-TH!  (It reminds me of John Candy in Space Balls.  BAR-F... he is a mog, half man half dog... he is his own best friend.)

I could actually see Garth calling it "G's".  It is simple.  I could see Bar Rescue's John Taffer coming up with something simple like that name too.  

It also runs with Garth's "Studio G" which you might as well put that in the 40,000 sq. ft. bar also.

No matter what Garth comes up with, I think, we will all be Friends in That Place.  He should be releasing more details of the venture in the coming weeks/months.  We'll keep speculating till then.
