Is Blake Shelton the New Taylor Swift?

Until the Washington Post said it out loud, I hadn’t really thought about it like this: Blake Shelton could very well be kind of the new Taylor Swift.

Miranda Lambert is not about to sing about a girl shaking her ass on someone’s tailgate.   There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that kind of party song.

This Song Sounds Like That Song

You know how sometimes one song will remind you of another one? Not in an arrogant “it was so much better when so-and-so did it” way.

Carrie Underwood Feeding Baby Only Good Vibes

Carrie Underwood’s intuition is right on.   She only wants her baby to listen to the good stuff during her last weeks of pregnancy. And that’s exactly what she should be doing.

Blake Shelton on SNL: Before and After Tweets

Before I round up all the tweets the country world wrote in support of Blake Shelton’s appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (Jan. 24), I have to just comment on what a good sport Chris Soules is.   Soules is the current star of Farm Hunk.

Blake Shelton on SNL: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Why, Saturday Night Live, why? Why did you have to immediately put a bale of hay on your stage from the get-go? That’s a rookie mistake. Just because you have Blake Shelton as your host doesn’t mean you have to go there. And then why did you have to write a bad country song titled... Read more »

I realize that the love between a husband and a wife isn’t huge news. It shouldn’t be, anyway. But this is just kind of too sweet not to share.
