Eric Church had a surprise visitor to the studio while he was recording his new album,The Outsiders.
We caught up with Eric and famed producer Jay Joyce at a listening party on Wednesday in Eric’s studio, in an old church in East Nashville. Apparently, Jay has a habit of leaving the door open, and while they were working on the disc, a homeless man walked in, claimed he was Jesus and said, “I’ll be here on Sunday!” They got it on tape, and it’ll be on the album.
Eric isn’t done fooling around with Taylor Swift, either. After pulling down that trailer for The Outsiders that seemed to be beefing with T -- but really wasn’t -- he’s put up a new clip. In it, he writes, “Mysteries may seem strange. But that’s what makes them fun. Eric adores Taylor for who she is and what she has done… Focus on the background and shed light on the clues. On January 3rd, all will be revealed to you.”
The Outsiders is due out on February 11th.
How deep are NBC’s pockets for The Sound of Music Live? Pretty deep! Sources for The Hollywood Reporter estimate that the three-hour live product starring Carrie Underwoodis costing the network as much as $9 million.
While it’s expected that NBC will lose money on the initial premiere, network chairman Robert Greenblatt is looking to bank on at least one additional broadcast before Christmas, as well as the companion soundtrack (out now) and a DVD (out December 17th).
If the show is a hit, it could be a holiday season regular for the peacock network.
Did you watch The Sound of Music last night?
We found this video yesterday after the show and just couldn't stop watching it. A couple of college students wanted to find out - on their own campus - what would happen if complete strangers witnessed bullying.
You might be very surprised by what happened...
What would you do - step in or speak up?
Please share this blog post with your kids, friends and family members. We feel it is important for people to know if they witness someone being bullyied, they need to step up and make a difference by trying to stop it!
The platinum-selling hit “Remind Me” has Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley facing a serious legal battle. On Tuesday, a federal judge in Nashville refused to dismiss a songwriter’s copyright-infringement claim.
Amy Bowen says she composed her “Remind Me” in 2008 and performed it as part of a 14-week Country Music Songwriting Workshop for other hit-makers, including advisers John Kelley Loveless and Charles DuBois. Amy’s song was critiqued, and she was told that it would work as a duet. She went on to perform it for years around Nashville and worked to improve it.
Three years ago, Brad, John Kelley and Charles worked on a new song, also titled “Remind Me,” and it went on to become a platinum-selling number-one duet for him and Carrie. Though the two songs have different lyrics, a judge will determine whether copyrighted elements of Amy's “Remind Me” are substantially similar to Brad and Carrie’s. The way “remind me” was used in the duet was enough for Amy to at least have case.

With the holidays among us, many offices around the Twin Cities will be holding their annual "Secret Santa" tradition. However, what do you do if you don't want to partake?
That is what listener Linda wants to know...
My office is planning on doing another Secret Santa this year and I’m getting a lot of crap for not wanting to participate in it.
I think it’s a total waste of money spent on gag gifts and candy that nobody wants.
I asked everyone if they just wanted to donate money to a charity instead this year and they looked at me like I ran over a puppy.
How do I bow out of Secret Santa without upsetting everybody?

How about this for crazy customer service…
If you forget to close out your tab and leave your credit card overnight at Christian’s Bar in St. John’s, Canada, you’ll be charged an “idiot tax” of 25 percent.
When questioned, the employees will actually tell you that it’s an idiot tax.
In other words, the bar you spent money at the night before will openly call you an idiot.

Some Victoria's Secret stores train their employees to treat male customers differently from females.
The workers are taught that men will pretty much buy anything in order to get out of the store as quickly as possible – which means they’ll spend more money.
Workers are more likely to tell women about promotions – like five for $25 panties – and then turn around and try to sell men full-priced stuff.
And because employees compete to sell as much merchandise as possible, they often fight over male customers.
