    Think George S. and Alan J. summed it up well it this song.

    I never realized how tall Alan Jackson was before. From that camera angle it makes him look like he is a giant over George.

    NOTE: Looks like he finally got over her for good this time.

    Bunch of posers. Bugs the crap out of me how people who talk with bizarre accents and whatnot all of a sudden find a twang in their signing because they are selling that image. They aren't finding their voice. They are finding a scene and pretending a voice. Annoying.

    On the other hand there are rock groups who do a fair bit of posing, along with folk groups, reggae types, gangsta rappers and so on.

    The image comes first.

    That's what's so sad--that it's not the music that comes first.
