Granger Tops a Million

I am not sure if they give out awards for hitting one million views on YouTube, but if they did, Earl Dibbles, Jr. would be getting a platinum one. Yup… Earl’s “Country Boy” video has been viewed over ONE MILLION TIMES. Granger Smith tweeted: “Reaching 1 million views on a video has been a goal of mine. Today, because of a little idea called Earl Dibbles Jr., that goal is met.” I am sure he is cracking a cold one to celebrate.

Sad News From Eli Young Band

Unfortunately, I have some sad news to report. Eli Young Band’s bassist Jon Jones said goodbye to his father last week. Allen Jones passes away in Fort Worth after losing a long battle with lung cancer. Our condolences go out to the Joe, Jones family and the band. On a brighter note, the The Eli Young Band has been added to next month’s CMA Awards list of performers. The awards will air live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on ABC November 1st.

Shootin’ the Stuff Shooter

Fortunately through the magic of the internet, I was able to sit down and interview Shooter Jennings. Shooter talked about producing Jason Boland’s new album and hanging out with Adam Hood and Jason Eady. But the highlight of the interview was when Shooter confirmed that a movie about his father Waylon Jennings has been green lit.
