My morning in country music.
There is a certain note of emphasis in the way that Tad Kubler tells a venue security officer, "Yes, he will be drinking tonight," that can fill one with either intense dread or a terrible, terrible excitement. If drinking had a Pope it would be Tad Kubler. The bad news is that I had to turn down a night on the town with the dudes because I had to be up early. For some reason I volunteered to be at the Hard Rock Cafe at 9:30 this morning to spend the better part of a day watching would-be Toby Keiths and would-be Gretchen Wilsons audition for Nashville Star. It ended up that everyone there were total bros and everyone had a good time except for the people who were crying.
