Many of fellow country artist friends come out and publicly remember their good friend Mel Tillis. Hearts are breaking all over Nashville tonight. 

Mel and daughter Pam Tillis
I’ve lost a brother. Mel was the very first person I met when I came to Nashville in the late ‘50s and we’ve been friends ever since. I’ve lost another fishing buddy and a talented, talented brother. Without Mel and ‘Detroit City,’ I probably would not have had a career. Mel’s one of those people you’ve got to love.” - Bobby Bare, fellow Country Music Hall of Fame member and bandmate of Tillis' in "Old Dogs" with Jerry Reed and Waylon Jennings. Mel Tillis co-wrote Bare's smash-hit "Detroit City."

"Mel was a special friend, great artist, and constant inspiration to me—Heaven’s choir just got sweeter." - Randy Travis, fellow Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member

“Hall of Fame entertainer and songwriter — he was all in one, a great combination. He is one of our biggest heroes.” - Randy Owen of ALABAMA, fellow Country Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame member

"Mel Tillis, you will be missed by so many of us you touched over the years. Rest in peace my friend." - Charlie Daniels, fellow Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member

"All I could think of when I heard the news of Mel’s passing was 'one of the brightest lights in country music went out last night.' He left an amazing legacy with his songs, but I will always remember his humor more than anything else. It’s sad to think there will be no more ‘Mel Tillis stories.’ - Jeannie Seely, fellow Grand Ole Opry member

“It's a sad day in country music but even sadder for the family and those of us who loved the late, great Mel Tillis. His life was the stage and making people laugh for years. He was truly one of the kindest men in the business to me. He was great friends with my dad and my uncle Bill and he's treated me like a daughter. My heart breaks for the future of the Tillis family while they heal. It's a hole that will never be filled for them. God bless Mel Tillis and the Tillis family.” - Lorrie Morgan, fellow Grand Ole Opry member

“Mel was a great entertainer who inspired me so much. I am deeply saddened. What a great friend he was to me. I just thought the world of him. We will miss him dearly. His great songs will be with us forever. God Bless his family.” - Moe Bandy

"I first met Mel when I played with him on Bobby Bare and Friends in ‘85. He was a true country gentleman, a giant songwriter and an icon." - Max T. Barnes

"We always loved working with Mel. He was one of the kindest, funniest persons we were ever around! We still laugh about the stories he would tell, hanging out after a show - one of the memorable people in our career." - Marlon Hargis of Exile

"I was honored to be Mel's friend! He took me under his wing a long time ago and for that I will be forever grateful. The world has lost a truly talented man. His music and hilarious stories will live on forever. Rest in peace my friend, I'll see you on the other side.” - Johnny Lee

"Mel Tillis was one of the first people I met in Nashville and he was always so kind to me. We certainly have lost a giant in our music family." - Lee Roy Parnell

"We lost a treasure today! Mel Tillis will always be an American original, he was humble, kind, gracious and funny. His stories were amazing -- thank you, Mel, for showing me how it’s done. Be as cool off stage as you are on stage. Rest in Peace my friend." - Tim Rushlow

"Thank you to Mel Tillis for the years of songs, stories and music; what an amazing legacy." - Paul Bogart

Richie & Rosie Release Sophomore Album Nowhere In Time

Richie & Rosie Release Sophomore Album Nowhere In Time

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- November 17, 2017 -- Last Friday, Richie & Rosie, the power duo known for their unique harmonies and unmatched talent, released their second full-length record, Nowhere in Time. The release was welcomed with critical acclaim from publications like No Depression, who called the album “an invigorating mix of the traditional with the ethereal.” Folk Radio describes the record as, “well-balanced, with a mix of songs and tunes that give a very clear picture of who Richie and Rosie are and what they are about.” Vents Magazine premiered the video for the title track last Friday. Richie & Rosie are currently touring the East Coast.

After three years of touring and writing, the duo returned to the studio last December to record Nowhere in Time with producer Alex Perialas at Pyramid Sound Studios. The album highlights the incredibly-refined skill of both musicians -- and while the majority of the album is a simple combination of fiddle, banjo, and captivating melodies, the duo manages to pack an incredibly full sound. “At the beginning, we were thinking it might be a project with lots of other people involved, more of a big production. As we went through it, we realized that the magic lies within the duo. We have an intimacy of music and we feel the power of two people playing. That’s who we are,” said Rosie.

Nowhere in Time is preceded by the band’s first album, Tractor Beam, released in 2013. Before meeting at Saratoga Springs’ Flurry festival and ultimately collaborating, the two were established musicians in their own right. Rosie toured as a member of The Pearly Snaps and was touring with The Mammals before graduating high school. Richie, president of the famed GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, performed around the world with bands like Bela Fleck, Pete Seeger, David Byrne, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Joan Baez. His endless discography includes three Natalie Merchant records, multiple collaborations with Jim Lauderdale and Donna The Buffalo, and Carrie Rodriguez.

Nowhere in Time gives fans a look inside the band’s personal lives, with a variety of introspective lyrics. While some songs are more light-hearted, like “Honey Bee”, which Richie wrote to “lure” his girlfriend back to the East Coast, others face more serious topics. Rosie stepped out of her comfort zone for one of the few lyrical co-writes between the two, “No Longer Lonely”, to write about a close friend passing away. But perhaps the most interesting story on the album lies within the title track, which Richie wrote after receiving an unexpected phone call from the AARP, requesting that he write a song about ‘life after 50’. “They set up a recording date for the song before it was even written. So I’m sitting in my living room, crumpling up paper and trying to write a song about reinventing yourself after 50. I thought, ‘I’m going nowhere with this’,” Richie says about the song that turned into appreciating the present, “That’s what the song was actually born out of. You can look back and look forward, but we aren’t done with life, we’re just where we are. It’s about focusing on the moment.” 

Ironically, the commissioned song became one of their most well-received songs and defined exactly what the duo hopes to achieve -- music that many can connect with. With the fated combination of Richie & Rosie’s unique skill, varied musical influence, and honest storytelling, Nowhere in Time does just that. As two musicians in two very different parts of life, Richie & Rosie are proof of two things: the power and magic of two people making music, and that the universal messages that lie within their songs will remain timeless.

Tour Dates:
November 24 - Ithaca, NY - The Haunt
December 8 - Nashville, TN - New Roots Exchange
December 14 - Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Folksong Society

16 Women accusing Donald Trump of Sexual Assault or Harassment all in one place at one time is overwhelming

16 Women accusing Donald Trump of Sexual Assault or Harassment all in one place at one time is overwhelming 

Donald Trump and Karen McDougal
Before the election these women came out of the wood work to talk about what they said candidate Donald Trump did to them.  It didn't stop him from getting elected. However, that may just be because the Russians had their fingers all over election results in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio. 

Karen McDougal & Donald Trump
It was widely report that Karen McDougal seen above was paid off to keep her mouth shut about her affair with Donald Trump. Click here to see that story in Time.com

ONLY 80,0000 VOTES  
Trump won the electoral college by only 80,000 votes split between 3 states.  3 States that used electronic voting that was found to have irregularities.  I only make this statement because I would fundamentally like to believe that America is better than electing a pervert to the highest office in the USA.  

16 Accusers all in one place

This company put together this video to house all of Trumps accusers in one place.  There is one missing however and that is the girl that says Trump raped her when she was 13 years old.  See COURT DOCUMENT HERE!

While everybody is all aghast about Roy Moore and Al Franken, it is pretty damn important that we begin cleaning our house on the main floor.  We need to start with the Oval office.  No matter how hard you scrub and what other garbage is removed, you are still going to have a stink if the rotting cheese in the Oval Office is still sitting on the chair.

Alabama Republicans are more than okay with having an accused pedophile on the Senatorial ballot

What is going on in Alabama?

Man accused of Sexual Assault of MINORS
Someone has to ask what the heck is going on in Alabama?  How can so many Republicans be okay with letting their candidate go ahead in this election. We are considering not naming him here but if we don't, people in Alabama won't know who not to vote for.  Let's talk about how low the Republicans are willing to go to get their man in office.  After all, we all witnessed the National Republican party be okay with electing a man accused of sexual assault, harassment or abuse being their nominee and then let him ride that nomination to the Oval Office.  The whole time keep in mind that over 12 women came forward telling their sordid and degrading experiences with Donald Trump. 

Some Republicans on the Hill are walking away from Moore but at this point, not enough of them are. 

Are Republicans screwing themselves?
In fact, are they actually screwing themselves by letting him remain on the ballot?  Last week it looked like the Democrat didn't have a chance.  Will these revelations swing the vote to the Democrat? 
The Dem winning would be pure sweet Karma.  Will that and the Trump resistance be enough for the Red State of Alabama to vote in a blue Senator? 

Republicans using Mary & Joseph
It has gone so far that the Republicans are actually using the fact that Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult man as their comparison to say it is okay.  If they want to go there, they must remember that Mary was Virgin when she married Joseph so it is not the same thing.  

Are people in Alabama really so backwards?
For decades the joke about Alabama has been inbreeding, marrying their first cousins and such.  If they elect this alleged sexual deviant into office, that will confirm that they actually have no standards, morals or brains.
