Kenny Chesney’s Pirate Flag Sounds Eerily Similar To Tom Petty’s Mary Jane’s Last Dance [Video]

I think Nashville Kat is onto something BIG!  This morning, on The WBKR Waking Crew, she told us to take a listen to Kenny Chesney's "Pirate Flag" back-to-back with Tom Petty's 1993 hit "Mary Jane's Last Dance."  Well, we did and we agree with Kat.  We're not sure we've ever head two songs that sound more alike than these two.  Take a listen and see what you think!

American Idol: Kelly Clarkson vs. Kree Harrison [Video]

Seven contestants remain on American Idol and odds are looking more and more like this is most definitely a girl's year to win.  Of the seven contestants remaining, five of them are female and just two are male.  And, let's be honest, Idol has had far more success with its female winners than it has its male champs anyway.  Is any Idol out there putting up the sales numbers and topping the charts like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.  The answer is a resounding, "No!"  And, last Wednesday, during Motown Week, I was reminded of just how different Idol is these days.  It seems the true standouts, the true phenoms, have already been on the show and won it.  And it was never more apparent than when Kree Harrison, one of this year's frontrunners, took on Aretha Franklin's "Don't Play That Song."  It was the same song Kelly Clarkson sang in the same theme week way back in Season One.  And, if you ask me, there is just no comparison.  WATCH!

Taylor Swift is ‘Super Nice’

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dave Spencer and I have had a number of conversations about superstar Taylor Swift. It seems that we never get requests for her music, when we mention her on Facebook we get a lot of negative comments and I hear people -men and women- gagging at the mention of her name. I don't know why there is such vitriol. Just read this story from Christine Vinson from Townsquare Media Interactive and see how "super nice" she is.
