Most anticipated performances where the performer was a jerk or had no personality at all

We have all been to those shows where we get a chance to meet or observe a performer and they turn out to be a dick or having a bad day, or just plain too good to interact with the crowd. First off,…Continue

My preference in artists are always those who write their own songs. For me it is about the Honesty from a singer-songwriter that causes me to be honest to myself. Now I'm sure those people on most…Continue

There is band out there I have been watching and listening to for about 5 years and they get better everytime I see them! Cody Jinks & The Tone Deaf Hippies are about as country as you could hope for and about as nice of guys as you"ll ever meet.There are alot bands out there with good lead singers and  fewer who are also good songwriters.Cody Jinks in my mind is the complete package in what I look for.This guy has a voice as good as Dale Watson or George Strait,but writes like a…See More

We have all been to those shows where we get a chance to meet or observe a performer and they turn out to be a dick or having a bad day, or just plain too good to interact with the crowd. First off, let me say I am not to disappointed because all of my examples were excellent musically!Tom Russell- chewed a guy to the core because he asked about Tom Hardin and was generally pissy with anyone who tried to speak with him after the show.Reckless Kelly- Was BS ing with Willie Braun before a show…See More

"I would vote for Hayess Carll,although he does not sing like a bird.However he was really engaged with the crowd and the songwriting speaks for itself! So I would say I hope I am lucky enough to get both! or maybe Todd Snider or Pat Green."

Two Cow Garage is one of my all-time favorites. I got to interview those guys after they released Speaking in Cursive. Good band and good guys.
