PatriotPartner and I are going to be knee-deep in country music by the time Sunday rolls around. Before I fully explain, let me direct your attention to a more interesting reality TV show involving wanna-be singers than the usual “Idol” banter on FOX.
American Idol was so painful last night (now I know why singers have producers to pick their songs!) that I needed something to cleanse my senses. Thank God for Nashville Star! And the website is fantastic. You can see the performers do their songs via video clips from the previous episodes.
But all of the Nashville Star guys are very good, great singers …. and good-looking! Check it out. Tuesday nights at 10pm on USA Network.
Back to our “Country Music Week”…. on Thursday we are making the four-hour drive from Charlotte, NC to Knoxville, TN to see three of our favorite country performers in one concert.
Brad Paisley is headlining with special guests Sara Evans and Billy Currington. (Billy is one of the top search engine keywords that bring folks to GayPatriot, by the way)
Then on Saturday night, back in Charlotte, we are on the floor at the new Bobcats Arena to hear one of our absolute favorites — Martina McBride!
I actually got turned onto Martina’s music thanks to Sean Hannity using her great song “Independence Day” as his bumper/intro music. When I first heard the song, I had to find it! I’ve loved Martina’s music ever since.
So that’s our week. I’m not sure how much blogging I will be doing in Knoxville on Thursday and Friday due to the drive time, but I’ll try!
