Video of the Day: “Truth No. 2″ – Storytellers

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

Just in case you didn’t get enough of a Chicks Fix watching the Dixie Chicks on Austin City Limits this weekend, here’s an outtake from their recent VH1 Storytellers appearance.   The Chicks talk about their cover of the Patty Griffin tune “Truth No. 2″, which originally appeared on their 2002 album Home, and was slated to be the fourth single until all hell broke loose over Maines’ on-stage comment about President Bush.

Most noteworthy is the beefed-up arrangement that the song has received since they began performing again this year.  Thankfully, the fiddle is just as prominent as ever.   Also, note the lyrical change in the third verse, where “You say that I lack the proof, baby that might be so” becomes “baby, that’s just not so.”   Much more assertive, don’t ya think?

Four years later, this is still one of my three or four favorite Chicks songs.   It looks like it will remain in their set list for a long time.

Video of the Day: The Hard Way

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

The finale from the stellar documentary Women of Country, this has more female talent on one stage than you’re ever likely to see again.

For those of you who need introductions, the artists who solo are, in order: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Wynonna, Kathy Mattea, Michelle Wright, Patty Loveless, Suzy Bogguss, Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood & Emmylou Harris, and Tammy Wynette. Legends ranging from Kitty Wells and Patsy Montana to Rose Maddox and Jeannie C. Riley can be spotted on the stage after Wynette finishes the bridge.

Video of the Day: Todd Snider, “If Tomorrow Never Comes”

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

Todd Snider tells the highly entertaining story about how he came to write “If Tomorrow Never Comes”, which quite deliberately bears the same name as a certain Garth Brooks hit.

Video of the Day: Carrie Underwood, “Alone”

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

In honor of American Idol kicking off a new season tonight, here’s the Carrie Underwood performance that won me over, and as you’ll see in the end of the clip, got Simon Cowell to predict: “Not only will you win this show, you will sell more records than any other previous Idol winner.” Pretty accurate so far.

Video of the Day: Loretta Lynn wins a Grammy

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Going to post today’s video a little earlier than usual. I’m blogged out for today.

This one has too many priceless moments to mention, but I particularly enjoy Vince Gill losing it in the audience.
