Tony & Kris got a rare opportunity to sit down with Keith Urban, they talked about Keith’s new album, “Get Closer”, how you could open up for him at a show and a TON more! Check it out!
I can’t believe it’s CMA time already! It’s funny, when we lived in California & traveled to Nashville for the 3 or 4 days of fun it was so crazy busy.
Hope you are well. Had a very busy weekend here in Nashville. Had a nice Friday night with friends at a place called the Wine Loft and Sambuca. I tried to grab some videos from the bands that night. There are always bands in every place playing and most of the time they are pretty good.
Saturday night was Jake Owen/Keith Urban. You know I like motivational quotes and stuff like that. Keith sent me an email and I loved the quote he has at the bottom of his emails and thought I’d share it with you.
“Competition attempts to be LIKE.
Creativity attempts to be UNLIKE.
Competition casts all humanity into the same mold. Creativeness makes each of us a counterpart of God.”
Do you have any quotes you really like?
Keith was great as always and his after party and after-after party were something else.
The show was amazing. Both are such great entertainers. I gotta say that Jake’s new cd is unreal and I keep comparing it to what Bryan Adams “Reckless”. You know just one of those cds that everysong is great. What are the cds you have that you think EVERY song is good?
You know how bad the economy is now. A friend of mines mother is trying to get work and she was having trouble. She started a business in her apartment complex. She’s calling it “Mom Stuff”. She makes 10 bucks an hour to organize your kitchen, closets, do some laundry, and run errands for you. I thought that was pretty clever and she’s doing really well at it. What are some things you do to make a few extra bucks in these times?
Hope you have a great day!
CMA FEST IS OVER! It was great as always. We were lucky enough to be involved with several artist events and sadly had to turn a few down because of timing. Tony got to check out the rehearsal for Keith Urban’s tour and only a select few got to do that. I went to this private club called the Citizen in Virago that was amazing. There was about 40 of us that got hang and talk to Shania and hear her new stuff.
She is very personable and nice. Pretty as can be too. I am told that we took a limo to LP field one night and checked out Keith Urban’s set. HA. It was a long day/night. Keith has always been a good friend to Tony and I but he keeps doing classy cool things that so many artist could learn from. His opening act this year is Jake Owen. A lot of artist keep to themselves when doing tours. Keith had a set at LP field and most artist would love playing their music for 80,000 fans. Keith did a great job but what made it cooler was is he called a few days before to Jake and said “I went online and learned to play your song “Don’t think I can’t love you” and during my set, why don’t you come out and sing that, I’ll play the guitar. How classy is that? They both knocked it out of the park.
Tony and I had to get up super early the next day because we hosted Chris Young’s Fan Club party. Chris’ 10th.
He’s gonna have a lot more cause his new cd is AMAZING. He in a classy move gave presents to those that helped him get to this point in his career. Very cool. ( We did sneak a pic from a video of when he was a kid) Gonna run now but we have new station information and our trip to Bama Rising coming later this week. Have a great day and thanks for checking this out!

What a CRAZY week in Nashville! It’s CMA Music Festival & all the die hard country fans have swooped in for a dream weekend.
We don’t usually wade too deep into the huge crowds, especially in this heat, but we do take part in some cool stuff. Yesterday,
Candy & I went to a private Keith Urban event. He opened up a rehearsal for industry, media & fan club-types to check out what he has in store for his upcoming tour. It was fantastic! There were around 400 people in the auditorium so it was really intimate. Keith came out &
talked about being nervous & asked that we all try to act like a “real” audience, then launched into Put You In A Song. He stopped & chatted between songs & explained some of what was going to happen. It was really fun. I snapped some pictures & took a little video. Hope you enjoy them.
Other than that, it looks like we’re hosting Chris Young’s fan club party this weekend & heading to Birmingham next week to take part in Bama Rising. Both HUGE honors. We’ll post pictures of both next week.
Have a great weekend!
