  1. You're right. I was thinking in terms of not making the live elimination rounds. Weiner points out that he was eliminated after his only country performance, FGL's Stay. - Another new interview/overview piece about Wallen, this time in the Washington Post. 1/21 You might know Morgan Wallen because of the SNL incident. But he’s poised to be the future of country music. https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/morgan-wallen-profile-new-album-dangerous/2021/01/20/743e1162-594d-11eb-a976-bad6431e03e2_story.html
  2. I've posted several articles and links about Morgan that I've come across on twitter or in other reading. I'm not a "fan" and have only listened to a handful of his songs, but he keeps showing up in places and doing things I wouldn't expect. This last album has a duet with Chris Stapleton and a Jason Isbell cover as well as his whiskey songs and rnb influences. Interesting dude. Today there's a new article by Nashville music writer Natalie Weiner that tries to look at the bigger picture and the phenomenon. It's also funny to see how his short Voice stint is treated. https://holl
  3. I doubt Twitter has concerns about legal exposure on first amendment issues. Google got a pretty clean win in an access case a couple of years ago. Like it or not, and I have mixed feelings regarding the principles involved (they apply to permit a ban on leafletting in shopping centers which have replaced the town square), the decision seems pretty sound legally. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/4421826-Prager-Dismissed.html Some states have broader protections under their state constitution but even with those, Twitter would be able to enforce reasonable restr
  4. Remember Moriah Formica, the formidable young rocker chick from the Miley Team that also included Chloe, Addison and Brooke in Season 13? She continues to record and perform and now has an upcoming streaming show with Sawyer Fredericks, whom some of you may know, and Madison Vandenburg from AI at the Palace Theater in Albany Promo poster - https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Eq53ZwWW8AAO7vG.jpg
  5. Morgan Wallen, the Voice's unlikeliest hero, has a new profile in, of all places, The New Yorker - How Morgan Wallen Became the Most Wanted Man in Country. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/12/28/how-morgan-wallen-became-the-most-wanted-man-in-country If you don't recall or haven't followed Morgan, it might be worth a read. It leads with his stint on The Voice: "Nearly seven years ago, a shaggy singer with a shy smile introduced himself to America. “My name is Morgan Wallen, I’m twenty years old, I’m from Knoxville, Tennessee, and I’m currently a landscaper,” he
  6. Strawberry Fields is up on YouTube. Fan edit of Landslide from TV
  7. Chloe's posting more about the album, I see on Twitter. Couple of interesting things - Another clip,from a Marc Jacobs ad, with her comment. It seems of a piece with the SFF cover in style? Last album vs.new - One more lol - What else do you know about the album? Will it be self-released or does she have a label? She seems to have some kind of backing anyway. Twitter pix suggest she's playing guitar now . . . And also this Always hard to figure whats going on with
  8. Morgan Wallen made it to SNL https://youtu.be/PLhRaSP-DJs https://youtu.be/khCbT8AGveI Morgan also appeared in a skit about his missed appearance, his future self portrayed by Jason Bateman coming to warn him about college parties during covid
  9. Things were kinda rocky for perennial IDF favorite Morgan Wallen, The Voice's most successful alumnus, as he recently faced an alcohol-related arrest and then got kicked off SNL for party behavior just before his appearance that was not, say, sufficiently socially-distanced. But never mind - he kept having hits of the bro country sort. Now, he's the Country Music Association's New Artist of the Year. https://people.com/country/cma-awards-2020-complete-winners-list/ Party on, The Voice's most famous dude!
  10. Fyi. Billboard's 12 Best Teen Singers on The Voice - alpha and not ranked. https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/television/9470383/12-best-teen-singers-the-voice/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
  11. Angel from Montgomery is a frequent cover on TV, generally from the Bonnie Raitt version of this John Prine song. Bonnie played a solo accoustic version of Angel on the John Prine Tribute that streamed last night and is now on YT - for me, it was a really beautiful take. Edit. Took out the link to the Tribute performance because the video was removed. Too bad. I replaced with Bonnie's 2020 performance of Angel on the Grammies. This is a nice version but I miss the heartbroken version from the Tribute. https://youtu.be/jv05dPfmx40
  12. Don't disagree that his most of his fan base likely won't care and didn't say anything about that -- most of his music to date is bro country. On the other hand, Morgan got good press recently for Cover Me Up, an anthem to sobriety, which some took as a change of direction and a more serious effort. I don't think he helped that cause.
  13. Morgan Wallen arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct in Nashville Saturday. https://tasteofcountry.com/morgan-wallen-arrested-nashville-public-intoxication-disorderly-conduct/ Apparently, disregarding the lyrics of his hit, Cover Me Up, he didn't "swear off that stuff, forever this time."
  14. Haven't watched this season or posted but loved what she did with Top of the World. She connected with this Patty Griffin song in a way that meant much to me, no matter what she did before or does after. RIP John Prine.
  15. Sorry about the board. Maybe a good time for me to exit. Anyway, Merry Christmas in advance. Here's John and Kelly doing John's rewrite of Baby It's Cold Outside. ("I've gotta go away/I can call you a ride"). (apologies if previously posted, but then who could check? :) ) I776VyXJab4 NBC story - https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/lyrics...d-john-n1073591
