FANS SPEAK OUT is a section completely for the fans! Fans can voice their opinions about their favorite artists, CDs, concerts, etc. Some fans write in, and want questions answered, so some questions are answered here. Though we can't add every comment we receive due to the amount, we will try and add a couple different comments from time to time...
Blair: Keep up the great work!
Kimberly: Country music has a total package with Eric Church!
Margaret - to Montgomery Gentry: I was at the MG concert last night (5/27/2006) at the Dodge Music Center in Hartford, CT. I was totally blown away. I have not been listening to country a long time, but will certainly be an avid fan from now on. The opening acts were very good also. Thanks for a great evenings entertainment. Keep up the good work.
Carol - to Rascal Flatts: I love your song Skin. My daughter is 20 months old - she doesn't have cancer but she does have cerebral palsy and seizures, a lot of the lyrics in the song any parent can relate to if they have gotten bad news about their
baby. She is also mentally underdeveloped...
Jacque: The new country artist Kelsey has just released her album Sept.6. Check out her web site: www.totallykelsey.com. She is really taking off. Thank you - A sold out fan!!
Suzanne: I would just like to let you know that Rachel Proctor has inspired me so much by the song Me And Emily. I left my daughter's father a couple months before this song came out because of domestic violence. My daughter's name is Emilie
and when I heard this song, it made me think of me and Emilie. I just want everyone to know that domestic violence is not worth it, even if you have a child, because one day he/she could be hitting the child instead of you.
Kathy wrote in and wanted to know the meaning of Josh Turner's single, the "Long Black Train. Could you explain the meaning of the people on the track and what is happening?
In regards to her question with "Long Black Train," the devil is driving the train. The people who are saved, are those who are saved by God. The ones that "disappear" are taken by the devil (in this case, the person driving the train)... If their sins are forgiven, when the train passes over them, they will be saved, as those who are left standing are. If their sins are not forgiven, the train goes right over them, and the devil has completed his mission. -- That's how I see it as. Thanks for the question!
Britt: I love your photos of Rascal Flatts! Take some more!
Comment & picture --- Billy Currington!
The concert was amazing!
Billy sang "Why, Why, Why" - "She Knows What To Do With A Saturday Night," "Let's Get It On," "Stand By Me," "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right," "Growin' Up Down There," "I Wanna Be A Hillbilly," "Where The Girls Are," and I think "Good Directions." He sounds amazing even when he is live! So, I had an amazing time and I am so happy I got to see him. He is so talented and amazing and so passionate about what he does!
December 2007 — Leslie Rabalais: December 21st of this year will mark the tenth anniversary of the tragic death of one of country music's most talented young stars. You may remember Amie Comeaux, a blonde haired, blue-eyed beauty from the small town of Brusly, here in Louisiana. In an effort to see that she and her wonderful music are never forgotten, a new video has just been released as a tribute to her and all she could have been. It contains a live performance, television interview, music and slideshow videos, biography, and DVD rom content with over 1000 photos of Amie. For more information, your readers can visit www.amiecomeaux.com. People around here still remember and love her and I hope others will too. Country music lost a gem nearly ten years ago. How sad for us.
April 2007 — Shawn: Just wanted to say that Jake's [Jake Owen] song "Startin' With Me" is a great song. I was told that the song was written by Kendall Marvel from Thompsonville, Illinois. I live 30 mins. from there. It's cool that someone close to home wrote that song. God bless.
Lucie: There is an incredible up and coming country artist. His name is David Church. He is being featured on RFDTV's Midwest country. We think he is the BEST!!! He is incredible. His website is: www.davidchurch.net You should
listen to his song: Blue Side of Town and I still Need and Still Want You. He is awesome!!!
Kelly H: I am looking for the name and artist for the following song. It is a man singing about his wife who has cancer. I believe it might be "strong," at least that is a main word in the song. Thanks!!
» The song is "Tough" by Craig Morgan. The chorus says: "She's strong, pushes on, can't slow her down. She can take anything life dishes out. There was a time back before she was mine... when I thought I was tough." »
