I gather from all the commenters wanting to hijack threads with off-topic comments lately that it’s time for an open thread. So here we go.
- It’s hard for me to tell if Amber Nelon Thompson is going to Hollywood for American Idol or not (I mean, I wasn’t aware there was even a new season of AI underway and this post, from whence things seems to have started, doesn’t identify or link to the original source), but if she is and her affiliation with Vine records presents any kind of potential obstacle to her television appearance, Vine records’ Wayne Haun wrote in an email last night that “
I haven’t talked to Amber to get any details, but we’d never stand in her way of broadening her career.”
- I see there’s now a Best of Sue Dodge Homecoming video out. And so we now know what the bottom of the Best-Of Barrel over at the Homecoming warehouse looks like.
- As many folks are noting, there’s a new world’s record for the lowest bass singer.
- With apologies to AS, a facebook friend of mine posted this a few days ago and though he was talking about music in general and not just southern gospel, I thought it might be interesting to use it here and see what happens: “what do people think are truly great songs, important songs that accomplish big/honest/great things both lyrically and musically.” Please show your work. No throwing out a song title and walking away as if your choice is self-evident or obvious. And no you’re not restricted to just sg.
What else have I forgotten or left out? Consider the floor yours.Email this Post
