  1. I think it is highly likely the masseuse is a member of this forum. I think it is possible a Brooklyn member of this forum attended as well. So nice to see that Robert gave these non-journalists a ....shout-out. He must really be proud of his superfans.
  2. I don't know if you have ever been in the Mississippi Delta in August, but I suggest lots of suncreen and mosquito repellent.
  3. This entire thread is amusing. Marriage licenses are a matter of public record in all 50 US states (as are births, political campaign contributions, etc.). Peyton Manning discovered this recently when his "off the record secret" twins were born. The fact that no media outlet is actively pursuing this by filing a simple FOI form means that a. it is considered a baseless rumor and not worth pursuing or b. nobody cares.
  4. It is my personal experience, from living in a neighborhood with public figures, that those that guard their privacy usually do not participate in Halloween, and certainly do not come out onto the front porch and pose with people they do not know. It is my strong personal opinion that the lovely couple knew exactly what they were doing (by leaving the interior of the house to pose for photos) and they knew exactly what the outcome would be (photos all over the Internet). This is much ado about nothing.
  5. Robert made a guest appearance with Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin last night at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, backed by Buddy's band which included Cody Dickinson from the North Mississippi All-Stars. They performed "Sea of Heartbreak" and a song from the Crown Vic set in Marfa (the tiitle escaped me, must have been the bourbon). Robert did talk about Crown Vic and referred to them as "Mine and Patty's new band". He said he named the band after his favorite car. The crowd loved that one.
  6. Love is in the air and all around, this fall. Everywhere from London, to Nashville, to Austin, and LA......
  7. I don't know why you are derailing the thread. I have never claimed to have been invited anywhere. I proudly support the music community by paying for my tickets, and volunteering with two nonprofit agencies that specifically support the music community.
  8. September 18, 2008: "Whatcha Gonna Do Leroy" duet with Buddy Miller. Americana Music Awards at the Ryman. A neighbor gave me his second row tickets and VIP pass. I am unaware if that duet has been repeated.
  9. That is the reason I posted that...they all handled it like the seasoned pros that they are, and the references to Tampa and Harris Teeter were hilarious. I could never figure out why so many people in my neighborhood shop at Harris Teeter (With Publix and Kroger practically in the back door). I guess seniors get a 5% discount there.
  10. Certainly not me. I thought Ohio State would be the end of my beloved Wildcats. i never dreamed I would be packing for Houston this week. Not with this year's line-up of freshman. Wonders never cease.
  11. Yes, I spoke with Steve, regarding the driving conditions. Everyone in Nashville is pretty friendly.
  12. In his opening remarks, he noted that it had been a "strange" snowy day, or something like that. The camera crew was there, I would bet they captured that remark as well as some footage on the conditions outside the venue.
  13. I realize that two inches of snow should not normally be a big deal, however the timing of this weather event created a perfect storm-type situation with traffic flow. At 3:00pm, there was no snow in sight. At 3:30 the snow came in fast and hard, with over an inch falling in the first hour. Nashville is not a mass-transit city, so office workers ran for their cars and attempted to go home around 4:00pm. Mass traffic jams ensued, and the snow plows were unable to get through the traffic to clear the roads of snow. The Interstates were at a standstill, the back roads and shortcuts were all clogged, and nobody went anywhere. Most middle Tennesseans are a bit short on experience driving on snow and ice, and people were abandoning their cars in the middle of highways, which compouded the problem. The normal drive time from my house to the venue is 20 minutes. It took me 2 hours and 30 minutes to get there. It took patience and a full tank of gas, but the band members and their family members and friends also experienced similar driving conditions. I did not notice that many empty seats, so I think the majority of ticket holders probably made it ok if they were willing to put forth the effort. And for the record, the driver that drove Plant from the hotel to the venue informed the world via Twitter that it took the Golden One two hours to get through the traffic. I think this is all much ado about nothing.
  14. Jack White was at the Nashville show (along with several members of the Third Man House Band). I agree that would be an interesting collaboration.
  15. I have no clue. I Googled it and it looks interesting but I have no idea what network it is on or anything else.
  16. It was filmed for The Artists Den. There was also a separate film crew from American Truckers following one of the tour drivers for a segment on the life of a tour trucker.
  17. Virginia: Thanks for posting this. Wanda performed live at the Grand Old Opry Saturday night, accompanied by Jack White and the Third Man House Band. The Ryman was packed, especially by January Opry standards. They performed three numbers, and other than Wanda briefly forgetting some lyrics (Jack immediately ran over and assisted) it was a brilliant performance. Vince Gill introduced the set, and he noted that Jack's presence in Nashville has raised the bar and enriched the music scene. I have not had time to check You Tube to see if any clips have been uploaded, but I saw several people taping so I am sure video is out there on the Interweb. It is not every night that you see Jack White playing lead guitar at the Grand Old Opry. I would also like to add that a Bluegrass legend from my hometown, Bobby Osborne, had the formidable task of opening this set (essentially opening for Wanda and the Third Man band). Like the wise old pro that he is, he brought the house down with his signature version of "Rocky Top", then quickly left the stage.
  18. Charlotte and Asheville coming up.
  19. Sounds like the long awaited AK / Union Station album, that has been in the works for over a year, may be near release. They do plan to follow the new album with a tour.
  20. I think Buddy is booked on another project in December. Here is my source: http://www.nashvillescene.com/nashville/how-buddy-miller-brought-robert-plants-band-of-joy-into-the-heart-of-americana/Content?oid=1798568

    MOJO Robert Plant

    The fat blokes with beards that Plant was referring to in that interview actually thought his comment was funny. They have had a lot of fun with that interview.
  22. From the Wall Street Journal, on the definition of Americana: http://online.wsj.com/article/NA_WSJ_PUB:SB10001424052970204518504574421372974268140.html Though the Americana Music Association celebrated its 10th anniversary here last week, few proponents of Americana music know how to describe it. "I have no idea," said Rosanne Cash when I asked. "I still don't know to this day," replied Buddy Miller, who was nominated for four AMA awards, won three and ran the house band at last week's awards ceremony at the Ryman Auditorium. "If you look up the definition of the word 'Americana,' there isn't any," said Asleep at the Wheel's Ray Benson from the Ryman stage. Earlier in the day, WSM disc jockey Eddie Stubbs reminded an audience at the convention center here that it was Hank Williams's birthday and, in a voice as soothing as an old sweater, added: "If he emerged today, country music would ignore him and Americana would embrace him." As much time and money I have spent supporting the nonprofit Americana Music Association, I could not begin to tell you what it is, so I find it reassuring that the musicians performing in this genre also have no definition. What I do know for a fact is that the majority of the musicians performing in this genre are great human beings--down to earth, without the entourages and backstage hanger-ons and private jets etc. If they are not on the road they are most likely found performing benefit shows at Nashville venues, trying to raise money for flood victims, cancer victims, to save somebody from foreclosure-the list goes on and on.
