      • I’m with Jason on this one. I’m never *shocked* when Stapleton wins an industry award, though I didn’t think he was a surefire winner in any of the categories this year.

        That Song of the Year win, though? Hoo boy. They’ve given this to significantly worse songs before, but if they weren’t going to give this to Chapman, there was really one obvious alternative, and “Next Thing You Know” sure wasn’t it.

        Delighted by the shut-out of Wallen– which feels like a statement– and that Moroney was limited to the one inevitability.

  1. …nominating parker mccollum for any award that hasn’ got anything to do with looks is most likely pushing things way to hard in the currently great country environment. still, the line “every line that i wrote” in “burn it down” leaves room for hope.

    • Tom! Where’ve you been, pal?!?

      Agreed, for sure. That he has a social media presence that’s nearly as toxic and belligerent as John Rich’s certainly doesn’t make him any more endearing, either.

      • …hi jonathan, i guess wordpress in its infinite (ai?)wisdom couldn’t be bothered with my regular two cents contributions anymore lately and just shut me out for a few weeks. whether this was a hint from above (to improve eventually after all these years!), karma or just a technicality, who knows. however, i swear, i did not suspect kevin for a minute, since i could not imagine that he had gotten hold of my rather favourable concert review of brad paisley’s gig in switzerland (with the absolutely fantastic sierra hull as opener).

        by the way, thank you guys for the bluesky bullet points and the introduction to all these new singles. they are most informative -and quite challenging – features at times. i’m still tryin’ to come to a conclusion, whether i find that new waxahatchee album great or the opposite. a bit of a test that thing. less so what katie pruitt and alynda segarra and her much cheered riff raffs have come up with – “alibi” and “white lies, white jesus and you” are just great songs. moreover, courtesy to beyoncé tanner adell’s fan base experienced a serious jump in its age structure lately.

        by the way, if you want to avoid any bias ahead of her debut album that drops in roughly a month, don’t watch that lauren watkins clip, where she does “he stopped loving her today”. guess, there’s at least one good thing about morgan wallen: the money he brings in allows big loud records to invest in new talents. and the furniture makers association of america are supposedly quite fond of him too.

        • Kevin can speak more to the specifics, but we’ve been having a lot of back-end issues with the comments. We promise that it wasn’t anything personal: Lots of adjustments to the filters over the last few weeks, and it’s an imperfect science!

          I haven’t seen that Watkins clip, but I thought the single (“Mama, I Made It”) from her record was solid. An 8-song EP titled “The Heartbroken Record” is live on Spotify as of Friday. I actually have that in my queue to listen to… I take it that’s just a partial tracklist for the full album?
