I've got another jam-packed newsletter for y'all. For those of you
with slower connections, my apologies. I try to break it down into separate pages for
faster loading but my time doesn't allow for me to make more than that. Since I live in
the sticks and have recently been able to get on a low-end broadband service I'm fairly
sure that the majority of folks online have faster connections than I do, but I still feel
badly for anyone who has to deal with a dial-up connection as I did for so many years. The
WebPages get bigger or slower to load as time goes on and I wasn't able to keep up for a
long time. I do know how it feels.
Error in Last Week's News Report
I made a big mistake in last week's news and want to clear
it up and give my apologies for the mix-up. I'm referring to the DivX program invitation
where I made the program available for free trial downloads and the first 5 users to send
me a write-up about how they used the program and what they think of it would get the code
key to enter into the trial program and be able to keep it for free. That part is
completely correct and the offer still stands. The error I made was in the name of the
program, which will make a big difference to those of you who like to create/post videos
The program offered is the DivX which compresses video
files making them faster to upload and faster to stream. It also maintains a high video
quality and makes it possible for you to store larger amounts of videos on a disc... even
on CDs (and of course, on DVD discs).
The product I wrote about last week was the DivX Author, which is also a great tool for creating your
videos but is not a part of this offer, and quite frankly, isn't the tool you need to post
your videos online.
Not only does DivX allow you to compress and enhance your
videos, you can upload them freely on Stage 6 which is a part of the DivX company. That's
right, you can use their server space and bandwidth at no cost to showcase your videos!
You can post them on your own website, blogs or any other area you which to use.
The following is the program to get and again let
me stress... all you have to do is be one of the 5 users to send me a write-up
about how you used the program or how you like it and I will send you the free code which
allows you to turn the trial version into the full blown program that you keep for FREE!
There's no gimmicks here.. just a chance for you to have a great program for FREE! Click
the download link below and get started!
FYI... I have the program and I love it! The sales manager
at DivX was so pleased that he is the one who gave me the codes to give away. I chose to
use them in this manner to make it fair to everyone. For those of you who are interested
in the DivX Author, you can still refer to the link on the left side of the page to find
out the details and cost, and it's also available for a free trial.. but remember, I don't
have the codes to unlock that one. If you like it and want to keep that one, you'll have to buy it. Again, I'm
very sorry for the confusion. Chalk it up to my being a blond redneck gal.. I had 2
strikes against me from the get-go!
Combining performance and compression, DivX for Windows
helps you shrink large video files into lean, high-quality DivX videos.- Download Now

Hall of Fame exhibit pays tribute to versatile
By BILL FRISKICS-WARREN
Staff Writer of The
|Country Music Hall of Famer Marty Robbins sang
all kinds of material: gunfighter ballads, rockabilly, gospel, Hawaiian love songs,
crooner pop. He also wrote a novel, was a successful entrepreneur and starred on TV and in
Robbins, who died of a heart attack in 1982 and whose biggest hits included "El
Paso" and "Singing the Blues," even raced against Richard Petty and Bobby
Allison on the NASCAR circuit.
His multifaceted life
and career, including the eye-popping duds he designed with feted rodeo tailor Nudie Cohn,
are writ large in Marty Robbins: Among My Souvenirs, the dazzling new exhibition
celebrating his legacy at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Marty Robbins waves to the audience after being named Male
Artist of the Year during the Music City News awards presentations. (6/9/1980) (SAM
PARRISH / UPI)
Robbins remains revered
"I can't think of anyone in country music whose interests and music range more
widely," said Mick Buck, curator of the exhibition, which opened last week and runs
through June. "He certainly crammed a lot of life into his 57 years."
Many of the items that form the backbone of the retrospective, which is sponsored by the
Great American Country television network, are on loan from Robbins' son Ronny.
The exposition abounds with subtle touches, from a handwritten page from the manuscript of
Robbins' paperback novel, The Small Man, to silent home movies containing footage of him
racing at the old Nashville Speedway. It's the show's pair of video montages, though
clips of him crooning and cutting up onstage culled from TV appearances that span
three decades that reveal why Robbins remains one of the most revered figures in
"He was a supreme ballad singer and entertainer," Buck said of those bravura
performances. "This year is the 25th anniversary of his death and induction into the
Country Music Hall of Fame. We thought it was a good time to take stock of his rich legacy

It was quite a zoo backstage at last week's
Columbus, Ohio tour stop for Gary Allan. Gary's bus driver, Fred Reed, is a longtime
friend of Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus of the Columbus, Ohio zoo and arranged for the zoo
to deliver several wildlife species backstage as a surprise for Gary and his band mates.
Gary was especially charmed by the miniature Chilean Pink Flamingo.
This breed is most comfortable in a flock and was quite at home in the crowded green room
backstage. Another band favorite was the 7 week old Cloud leopard which favors climbing
trees (pictured with Gary).
Elvis and the International Country Music Day
One Elvis song will be designated Official Song of the
International Country Music Day 2007.
2007 marks the 30th anniversary of Elvis' passing, and therefore,
the country music associations and websites that celebrate the International Country Music
Day would like to honor the legend of the King.
By his own admission, Elvis was not strictly a country artist, but he always showed a
great deal of respect for the genre and went on to record countless country numbers,
giving country music his own special touch. That is why we have decided to honor Elvis and
his musical legacy by designating one of his songs as the Official Song of the
International Country Music Day 2007, next 17th september.
The winning song will come out of votes cast in Argentina, Spain, the United States,
France, Greece, Uruguay, and the rest of the world. The songs entering the poll have been
selected among Elvis best country releases according to their quality, chart
position, and success of Elvis performance. They are the following: Blue Moon of
Kentucky (1954), I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone (1955), I Forgot to Remember to Forget
(1955), (Now and Then) There's a Fool Such as I (1958), There's Always Me (1961), Guitar
Man (1967), I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago (1970), Little Cabin on the Hill
(1970), Always On My Mind (1972), I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (1973) and Moody Blue
Everyone is welcome to vote: http://internationalcountrymusicday.blogspot.com/
|FYI from Marli... Several of
Elvis's movies have just been released this month on DVD! Get all your favorites from the
link below. Also, if you read this in time, TCM is showing Elvis movies all day as this is
Elvis's birthday. There's also a special about Elvis on the Larry King Show on CNN at 9pm
Eastern time! The show is being done live from Graceland!

International Country Music Day Keeps Growing
The International Country Music Day was created in 2003 by the Country Music Association of Spain -CMA-Spain- in
order to bring together all artists, musicians, and country music fans all over the world,
as well as to promote our music worldwide. Since then, many associations have embraced the
event, including the Country Music Association of
Uruguay AMCU-, country2.com Argentina-, Country CD France- (fomerly
FACM), the Country Music Association of Greece
CMA-Greece-, and several artists, groups, radio stations such as Dímelo Country DCWR-., websites, and fans
throughout the world.
In 2007, the United States Hispanic Country Music
Association has been added to the long list of associations embracing this event.
President Maritza Baca talks about her own experience with country music: I do not
believe that Country music has borders. I have seen Latinos born in the U.S. and Latinos
from Mexico, Central and South America embrace Country music. My mother who was born in
Guatemala and immigrated to Los Angeles in 1969, is a Country music fan. My father, who is
Mexican-American and from New Mexico exposed her to Alan Jackson, George Strait and
others. She became hooked and loves to line dance!
Baca believes country music is a universal musical language: I have been to Mexico
and have seen people there listen to Country music in English and Spanish. I believe
Country music can be played in both English and Spanish and garner fans, depending on your
language preference and where you live. Look at Billy Ray Cyrus's hit "Achy Breaky
Heart." I have seen more people line dancing to that song in Spanish at weddings and
quinceaneras than anywhere else. I believe Country music is very universal.
Hispanic Country Music Grows too
The president of this new association based in Los Angeles, California, explained why she
got involved in the founding of a new hispanic association: I started the U.S.
Hispanic Country Music Association because I have met many Hispanics who perform Country
music and who have gone un-noticed and with little support. These are Mexican-Americans
who live in many cities accross the U.S. from California, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado,
Florida and Tennessee to name a few. I am very passionate about creating a voice for
Hispanic artists in Country music because I haven't seen the Country music industry
nurture or develop another superstar artist like Freddy Fender.
Finally, she had some very positive words to say about the International Country Music
Day: I salute the International Country Music Day for it's efforts in extending
Country music to fans worldwide. The CMA Spain, Uruguay CMA and the international
organizations are doing great work to spread Country music in their Countries and develop
their local artists. I hope to continue to provide opportunities to Latino Country artists
from all over Latin America and to also help spread Country music internationally with
tours and events. Que viva la música Country!
Adam Harvey, 2007 CMA (Country Music Association, America) Global Country Artist
Award supports the International Country Music Day
The International Country Music Day is held on September 17 every year, commemorating the
birth of Hank Williams, one of the foremost legends of country music.
Australian country singer Adam Harvey, winner
of the 2007 CMA (Country Music Association, America) Global Country Artist Award,
expressed his feelings about this celebration: Having it on Hank Williams' birthday
is a nice touch but more so it is great to see lots of people around the world recognizing
and enjoying country music.
Come celebrate with us and enjoy country music!

CRACKER BARREL & MERLE HAGGARD PROVE TO BE
TN Since releasing "Working Man's Journey" exclusively through Cracker
Barrel Old Country Store on May 29th, 2007, Merle Haggard has proven that a few years
under his belt has only affected his voice for the better.
The Philadelphia Inquirer says of the album and Merle, "Haggard the balladeer is in
full flower on 'Kern River' and 'Are the Good Times Really Over' but he also gives some of
his most animated performances in years, honky-tonking it up on 'Shade-Tree Fix-It Man'
and 'Rainbow Stew.'"
Country Standard Time says of the album, "the disc is seamless with no real
difference between old and new." Country Weekly says "a surprisingly cohesive
gathering of thematically linked songs by the Poet of the 'Common Man,' Merle
With six new songs and six classics, which have been newly recorded, Merle stays true to
his roots in the release of his new album. His distinct voice and theme throughout the
album hold true to what we all love in Merle's music. According to Merle, "I think
its common subject matter that people of our nature understand. There's nothing
complicated about it. It's just plain old music about simple subjects."
Don Chance from Time Record News writes, "It's something of a miracle
collection." In Merle's forty year career, he has released many albums and written
numerous songs. Looking back Merle says, "Out of the last twelve-fifteen years, I
have made several albums, and there are always songs in there that don't fit the concept
that you're working on. It just gets left behind, but these songs all seem to work
Merle's new hits on the album are definitely songs that will become instant classics. With
songs like "C'Mon Sixty-Five" and "In The Mountains To Forget," it is
easy to see that this album is something most people can easily relate to.
Merle Haggard's "Working Man's Journey" is available only in Cracker Barrel
stores or online at www.crackerbarrel.com

Tillis, Emery, Gill to grace Hall of Fame
3 latest country music honorees bring membership to 101
By PETER COOPER
Staff Writer of the Tennessean
|The news was shocking enough to make Mel
Tillis drop his eggplant.
Tillis, 75, was in his garden in Ashland City when his cell phone rang with the news that
he'd received country music's highest honor: induction into the Country Music Hall of
Fame. Beloved for his songwriting, his singing and the pronounced stuttering that he
turned to his advantage onstage, Tillis joins modern-day star Vince Gill and famed
broadcast personality Ralph Emery in bringing the Hall's total membership to 101.
Upon getting the good news from Country Music Association Chief
Operating Officer Tammy Genovese, Tillis fumbled the eggplant he was holding. He's OK with
that: A soiled vegetable seems a fair trade for country immortality. Emery was similarly
stunned by Genovese's call to him, and Gill responded by getting in his car, tuning in to
a country oldies show on satellite radio and weeping while driving around Nashville.
Mel Tillis, left, Vince Gill and Ralph Emery are the newest
members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Country Music Association announced during
a news conference Tuesday. (SANFORD MYERS / THE TENNESSEAN)
The three honorees were at a Tuesday morning news
conference at the Hall's Ford Theater, with Mayor Bill Purcell and luminaries including
Brenda Lee and Barbara Mandrell on hand to offer words of praise and respect. Each
inductee received standing ovations from a crowd composed of industry figures and some
museum visitors who wandered into the building expecting to see historical exhibits and
wound up watching history being made.
Honorees are awed
Gill, 50, serves as the president of the Hall of Fame and Museum's Board of Officers and
Trustees, but that board has nothing to do with electing artists: Inductees are chosen by
the CMA's panel of more than 300 anonymous electors, and the elections are done in
categories. Gill enters as a "Career Achieved National Prominence Between 1975 and
the Present" artist, while Tillis received a "Between World War II and
1975" nod and Emery joins as a "Non-Performer."
"I could recite a phone book full of people that deserve to be in here before I
do," said Gill, whose prodigious musical skills are matched by his knowledge of and
affection for musicians who came before him. Gill has won more Grammy Awards than any
other male country artist and has won 18 CMA Awards, but none of his trophies can match
knowing that his Hall of Fame plaque will hang on the same wall as the plaques that read
"Chet Atkins" and "The Carter Family."
What Johnny Carson was to actors and comedians, 74-year-old Ralph Emery has been to
country musicians. His 50 years in radio and television have found him interviewing
numerous Hall of Famers, and now his likeness will reside alongside theirs in the Hall's
rotunda. Tuesday morning, he looked around that rotunda in the early morning hours before
the Hall opened for business.
"My great-grandchildren can come in here and find out who I was," Emery said,
his somber voice as familiar and distinctive as that of any singer on the hit parade.

LAST OF THE BREED.
We just watched a great TV show on PBS. It was called "Last of the Breed", and
featured Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Ray Price, and Asleep at the Wheel.
It reminded us of the 1970's when we traveled the roads of America, and jammed on stage
with all the Country legends.
Misty and I cried all the way through it, just because the music was so damn good!
A PBS hostess asked Willie how he wrote "Crazy". He said "The original
title was 'Stupid'". She said "How old were you when you wrote it?" Willie
|THE TROUBLE WITH BEING DIFFERENT.
This is about entertainers in general...
and mostly about music professionals.
Most major stars have had something new to offer,
but there is a level of show business where it is a liability.
An original has a hard time in the small time.
Nightclubs, hotels, RV resorts usually want cover acts.
A cover band plays other peoples music
and tries to sound like the hit recordings.
The audience tries to pretend they are hearing the real thing.
Nobody in the Big Time does that,
but sometimes its the only way a local musician can earn a living.
Misty and I have always been warmly received
by audiences at auditoriums, fairs,
and other places where we were advertised
and the people came to see US.
In off times
when we would take a booking where they just wanted a band
or a country show,
we had problems.
We were told things like: Youre not what theyre used to here.
Why did they ever change bands at all,
if they wanted them alike?
These situations are worse for the musicians on the road,
because the owners and the audience live there,
while the agent sits home in his comfortable office,
but the band has traveled hundreds of miles
to get rejected in a strange town,
with no friends around for moral or financial support.
We could never compete in the small time.
We have sometimes sung other peoples hit songs,
but we changed them radically to fit our own style.
We have just never been good at copying other artists.
Sometimes weve wished we could,
to prevent on-the-road nightmares.
We have many wonderful memories of standing ovations,
and some not so wonderful
of being fired without pay, a thousand miles from home,
because we were different.
If we could have been a Tribute act,
basking in the glory of, say, Sonny and Cher,
wed have worked forever,
but probably wouldnt have been successful recording artists,
at least in the 1970s,
when everybody wanted something new and different.
Lately, even record production has a narrowly defined sound
that the major labels want on all of their product,
and the radio programmers demand.
Consequently, a lot of the music and artists sound alike
and the audiences are conditioned to accept that.
Style has become a liability.
Conformity is in demand.
This may be a symptom of what our society has become.
Our many musician friends who do sound-alike music
are working much more than we are, but thats okay.
Good for them.
Faron Young once sat here at our breakfast table
and said this about our music:
Three seconds into the record you know who it is.
Good for us.
