David Frizzell 
Like other acts, such as Montgomery Gentry, David admits, "There’s a lot of songs we only sing once, while making the album. I’ve always hated that! The record label picks the singles, and you don’t sing the rest of them enough to remember all the words! On this current album there’s 12 songs on there, and I wrote 10 of them, so ...."

CRS - 2001 (Country Radio Seminar) 
The Country Radio Seminar (CRS) was a real eye-opener! With parties going on until the wee hours of the morning and breakfast at 8AM, it didn’t leave much time for sleep.

Sam Donelson gave the opening address. Sam has always been known for being very blunt about his feelings on any given subject. He told the radio stations, "You will please the consumer, or you will perish." Sam said he got his start, at the age of 17, as a country radio DJ in Texas.

John Michael Montgomery (pictured here with Jolene) showed up in crutches to perform "I Swear", at the CMA breakfast. For those of you who haven’t heard, John M. broke his leg in a hunting accident. According to his brother Eddie, of Montgomery/Gentry, John M. got hurt while chasing down a wounded duck. He asked John M. "Wouldn’t it have been a lot less expensive to buy a good tracking dog?"

Ricky Lynn Gregg 

Ricky Lynn Gregg where have you been?! Definitely not ‘Lost in Cyber Space’! Even without radio airplay the last few years, RLG still has one of the largest fan bases in country music, online and off. "After ‘95, that’s when we decided to get out on our own with our Rockin’ Country style, the Internet kept our fans with us.

Janie Fricke 

‘Bouncin’ Back’ has Janie Fricke bouncin’ all around the country, trying to keep up with the success of the album. " My booking agency, Bobby Roberts, keeps me busy! I’m thrilled that the fans still want to hear me sing!"

Aaron Tippin 

At this time of the year I always feel guilty. There are so many great acts to write about during the year and only twelve months to do it in. I’m going to let you use my XMAS shopping list as a guide. You may recognize the description of a relative or friend!

Kathy Mattea 

When I think of Kathy Mattea’s new album ‘The Innocent Years’, I can’t help but think of Paul Nelson. Paul was a school teacher on the east coast of Florida, who had decided to become a songwriter.

Nickel Creek 

It could easily have been the name of one of the freshest new acts in Bluegrass today, Nickel Creek. It all started out so innocently. Scott Thile took his family out to ‘That Pizza Place’ in Carlsbad, Ca.

The Grand 'Ole Opry 

The 75th Anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry ... the unveiling of the new backdrop for the stage, and the retirement of the old red barn, gave many fans reasons to look at Fan Fair a little differently this year.

Shenandoah 2000 - With new lead singer Brent Lamb ,this is definitely a new CD ...

It’s time for CRS again! The Country Radio Seminar, which I call the ‘Can’t Remember Stars’ Convention! While I’m there I’ll try to get all the latest news of which acts have moved to what labels, so you can keep up with them! From the emails I get, it very evident that all of you fans have a favorite artist that you’d like to know more about. If we all liked the same music it would be a boring world!

They say the early bird catches the worm, if you don't believe it just ask Marty. 'Early morning is a good time. I like to fish. Fishing's like everything else, it's got so high tech it's almost like a day's work just to get to the water. We didn't live on a farm in Mississippi, but both my Grandparents did. I was out there all the time. That was my world.

Alabama

ORDER
Alabama has always been known around the world as one of the hottest country music touring acts. They were the first country act I ever went to see in concert. After going to see the pop group Chicago in concert, I figured that a country act called Alabama would put me to sleep. Needless to say, I was on my feet with about 15,000 other fans with a standing ovation and demanding an encore … which the guys were happy to oblige us all with.

Billy Ray’s
first ‘day job’ was cutting grass. ‘I was about 8 years old, and I wanted a new bicycle. The only way I was going to get it, was to go out and work for it. I’m glad that my parents instilled that in me as a little boy. If you want something in life, you’ve got to be willing to work for it. That still carries on to this day.’
