He bought a bigger house! Isn't that crazy? I mean, how much room can a bachelor need?
I think one reason why the winners of Nashville Star had problems was because the record labels were a little more realistic than the voters about who could actually make it in the business. For example, Chris Young. He's a young, good looking guy. His album didn't come out till something like 6 months after he won his season. Angela Hacker, on the other hand, had an abbreviated album come out around 2 WEEKS after she won and it was mostly cover tunes. She was a middle aged woman who wouldn't appeal to the younger audience that labels were trying to reach, especially fans who were new to the genre thanks to Taylor Swift. Musicians need time to make a good album-I have a bunch of musician friends and I think they'd all have heart attacks if they had to make a full album in two weeks and have it be a good one.
I think they really stacked the deck on this show. With the exception of Wynn (who I think is talented and hilarious and a plant and I never want him to leave my tv) and Matt D, everyone is under 30 and very good looking. And Matt D is very good looking himself, as well as being one of the most country voices of all of them.
I think this'll be good...I like that they're going to have challenges related to other parts of the music business because it'll really seperate the ones who think that all they have to do is sing from those who really want it and will work for it. I'll be cheering for both Matts!
