Some stuff that’s going on around the blogosphere and interwebs:
- Gordon Mote won the Music City Award for Piano/Keyboard Player of the Year for 2009. My handy press release tells me this is “an honor awarded to the artist who has performed on the most Top 10 selling albums for the year.”And it’s quite an impressive list of albums. The full list and press release are here.
- Longtime readers will recall my blogcrush on Allison Lynn the year she blogged her first experience of Stamps Baxter music. Since then, she’s moved from her native Canada to Nashville and tried to improve upon the starving artist status her blog is named after. Anyway, turns out she’s headed back to Canada. Bon voyage, eh.
- Rick Hendrix appears to have surrendered his claim to http://rickhendrixforcongress.com/ (at least it was available for purchase when I checked this afternoon). A while back, the Rothenberg political Report surveyed the splash Hendrix was trying to make in Democratic political circles and concluded that “the political world may not be ready for Rick Hendrix.” Maybe Hendrix has come to that conclusion himself?
- News-related peeve of the day: I really wish PR folks (yes, Collingsworth Family, I’m looking at you!) would paste the copy of the press release into the body of the email rather than attaching a cryptically worded “official” file to the message and then advising me to “see attached news release.” Even though I might actually be interested in what you have to say, I delete that sort of unsolicited, Trojan-horse-looking stuff on sight.
What else? Consider this an open thread.Email this Post
