I havent been able to place but one call. How are the rest of you getting through?
Thanks!! Enjoyed my first time watching Nashville Star...though it was a bit long, IMO. Seemed to be a lot of talk between the songs. But I enjoyed the singing talent more on this show than on American Idol.
I've gotten through several times for Brad. I have to say, though, that the "Thanks for voting" message cracks me up! The accent sounds so contrived.

I was wondering....were these contestants performing songs that they wrote? I skimmed through a couple of threads just now and it seemed like people were saying that. If so, I'm mega impressed! Not necessarily because the songs were all that great, but just because there are such higher standards for this, instead of just getting up there and singing a song. Also, I really like that they let the contestants play guitars. Again, I think my level of impressment is due to my two years of watching American Idol, where they don't do either of these (write or play instruments).
This week no they did not sing thier own song, but next week they probably will. Week before last they had to perform a song they wrote and usually in the finals they have to sing at least one song that they wrote or co-wrote. Many of the contestants also play other instruments like keyboards, banjos, washboards. I agree with you many of them are better than ones on American Idol , one of main reasons is there is no cut off age for the contestants, last year the winner Buddy Jewel was over 40.
I got in my votes on line pretty quickly. They immediately shut me off after ten, which is unusual. I've only been able to get in one vote so far for Lance. All telephone circuits are busy here. They're usually down until about 45 minutes after the show is over. I'll just have to wait til later to call.
Good show. I wasn't impressed with Matt tonight. I watch him every week, and I feel like I still don't know if he can sing. I'm sure that sounds stupid, but he's just so outrageous. He's funny and all, but not a serious singer, imo.
I hate that Bayou song that "George", aka Fred Lays sang. He did an alright job with it, though.
I didn't hear the bad note from Lance that Dagwood mentioned. I'll have to rewatch and see if I catch it. Lance will be home Monday for his benefit concert. I doubt I'll be able to go, because there's no way I can stand in line for tickets for hours. Hopefully he raises a lot of money. Concert proceeds to go to the American Red Cross. There will also be a parade in town. I'll definitely be there for that!!!
okay, so now I'm commenting on my own dumb question...since I didn't get around to changing the channel when it went off, it's on again, and I remember now that Brad sang "Drift Away" and DUH he didn't write that.
