Trace Trashes Miss USA. Brad Weathers Storm.



Trace Adkins Don’t Much Care For Miss USA

Hmmm. Wonder what she thinks about his singing?
A Secret Meeting Between President Obama and Dierks Bentley?
Dierks Bentley told fans at his recent Washington, D.C. concert that he had met with President Obama that day in the White House. He said he dropped off his new CD Up On The Ridge. President Obama has been know to refer to a Dierks’ quote in the past. Bentley told that quote to the crowd again.   “I said Country Music was the best shrink $15 can buy.” 
Paisley Opens H2O World Tour To Sellout Crowds
Brad Paisley played a sold out crowd in Washington D.C this past weekend himself, but opened the tour in Virginia Beach. Paisley told the crowd they had no idea what it took to get there, referring to overcoming equipment lost in recent Nashville floods. Brad said, “It was emotional, it was heartache, and it took perseverance to get here tonight.  Every member of my team made this a reality and I am so proud of them.  Thanks to you guys for making this difficult time that much more rewarding for all of us out here on the road.” Okay, so let’s see how many puns we can come up about the Nashville floods and Brad’s H2O tour:
  • “We thought it was dead in the water.”
  • “It looked all washed up.”
  • “It was sink or swim.”
  • “Someone had to throw it a life preserver.”
  • “Looked like a sinking ship.”
  • “It somehow managed to keep it’s head above water.”
  • Or maybe the best – “A rising tide raises all ships.” We mean it brought his crew’s achievements to a new level. Woof!
