So, come on Farrell - give it up. How do YOU know "Friends in Low Places"?

:hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm:

1st Nov 2005, 21:57
"Friends In Low Places" was a very popular Karaoke number when out of my face in Florida during flight training!

And I'm very surprised that we didn't get a Chris Gaines question!

"Chris Gaines" has a wonderful track called "Lost In You" which is a really great song for those lazy afternoons in the hammock!
You should check it out if you get a chance - or I can email you an mp3 if I can find it again

2nd Nov 2005, 04:34

but Scranette No 1 is a country music fan, and has all of Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks (I had to hear "Friends" somewhere :uhoh: ) Montgomery Gentry, Chris Cagle etc etc etc etc.......:hmm: :zzz: :zzz:

I'll ask her if I can have a listen next time I see her

:E :E :E :E

2nd Nov 2005, 05:53
Chris Gaines, for those not in the know, is actually Garth Brooks in disguise.
It was a solo project that he did for a film called "The Life of Chris Gaines" but they decided to release the album with no reference to Brooks whatsoever.
I liked him as a country singer before the album came out but the vocal range he demonstrates as 'Chris Gaines' is really something.

Ask Scranette No. 1 if you can listen to some Travis Tritt, Tim McGraw (especially, Do You Want Fries With That?), Mindy McCready and Kenny Chesney too!

2nd Nov 2005, 19:52
Holy sh*t :uhoh: I still think the best album ever is "Woyaya" by Osibisa - Ghanaian country & western.....

2nd Nov 2005, 20:53
Travis Tritt!!!

It's A Great Day To Be Alive - classic!!!!!!

Kenny Chesney -

Just Don't Happen Twice
She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy
Back Where I Come From (live version)

and his last album - great stuff

Yup, Mindy McReady, Sara Evans, Allison Krauss, Alan Jackson

(Its 5 O'Clock Somewhere, Where I Come From)

Damn it Farrell.....you have made me admit to being a closet country music listener...:uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :{ :{ :hmm:

Piggy - Looks like Vietnam (and Cambodia) are on, so you have the next 3 (543, 544, 545)
