You've gotta hand it to Brad Paisley. He can find the humor in just about any situation. It seems the Westboro "Baptist" Church folks (you know, those loving folks who protest at fallen military personnel's funerals, among other things) decided to protest one of Brad's concerts recently. Brad took a hilarious selfie that you've just got to see!

Here's a video from the Flag City Opry performance on 5/20/14. It's one of my favorite old Willie Nelson songs, "You Ought To Hear Me Cry." Willie wrote and recorded this one back in the 1960's, when he was signed to the RCA Victor label. I wasn't released as a single until 1977. Two years prior, in 1975, Willie had released "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" from his Columbia Records smash debut album, Red-Headed Stranger.

Some tech blogs are speculating on the possible discontinuation of the product that launched Apple into the stratosphere, and sparked a revolution in both the personal electronics and music industries: the iPod. Unit sales have declined over the last couple of years, as more and more smartphones (with music storage and playing capabilities) make up a larger and growing share of the market. Could the venerable iPod's days be numbered?

Kyle Park is returning to Schroeder Hall this Saturday, May 17th. I'll have ticket info for the show at the end of this blog post. Kyle's new single, "Long Distance Relationship," is a beautifully-written song; but the accompanying video is sure to touch your hear, and maybe even bring a tear to your eyes (it did that to me).

I've been a professional musician (singing drummer) since I was 16 years old. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of sharing stages with some wonderfully talented musicians. Now, some musicians are flaky, some are temperamental, and some have rather inflated egos; but most have been good folks, overall. Fairly early in my musical career, I formed the opinion that lead guitar players are just "wired up" differently than most other musicians.
