A Stunning Plan
A few weeks ago my sister -- newly relocated to Route 66 at Flagstaff, Arizona -- emailed about maybe going to see "some bluegrass guy." Meh, you know, if nothing else is on. Some chump the name of Ralph Stanley, never heard of the guy.
Anyone else I would have blogged that puppy and made delicious fun but as The Boss sang (sort of) "you turn your back on your sister, you ain't no friend of mine." So I confined my mockery to a few private emails and politely suggested it would be most edifying for her and husband if they were to attend.
I kid, because I love.
But you know what was also funny? Reading Tim McGraw's message boards at CMT.com when Dr Ralph beat him out for "Best Male Country Vocal" at the 2001 Grammys. Hee hee.
