  • kalieshorr: This time last year, the world had just shut down completely. The “it’s just for two weeks!” turned into… well, you were there. You know. @mallonation and I had all of our shows cancelled and I was more depressed than ever. So he and I got together and made this- and I’m so proud of it. It’s the first in a series of three EPs, where I cover three songs from my favorite albums. The first one is Fly by @thechicks, an album that made me want to do music and completely changed my life. I hope you like what we did with them 🖤 3×3 Vol 1: The Chicks out everywhere now

Absolutely terrific piece via WashPost’s Emily Yahr entitled: “Everyone wants Garth Brooks on their side. He just wants everyone to get along.” — some really great insights from her in-person conversation with The Big Guy — loved this part: “Okay, here’s what happened at President Biden’s inauguration. Garth Brooks didn’t mean to cause a slight delay. If anything, he joked, it was Barack Obama’s fault. The country music icon was, as always, just doing what he was asked to do, which in this case was sing “Amazing Grace” on one of the highest-profile stages in the world. When he was done, he shook Biden’s hand. He shook former vice president Mike Pence’s hand and Vice President Harris’s hand, too. Brooks put his cowboy hat back on and was dutifully walking up the stairs to exit, he said, when Obama suddenly caught his attention with a quick, “How ya doin,’ Garth?” What would anyone do in that situation? “I hugged his neck,” Brooks explained. “Hugged Miss Michelle.” Then he noticed the couple’s seatmates. “As I’m hugging Miss Michelle, there’s the Clintons — so I go over and hug them and tell them I love them. Then I hear this voice go, ‘Hell, you love everybody.’ I look over and there are the Bushes. Now, 41 — Jiminy Christmas, I worship that man and I worship his family. So I go hug them.” Brooks, sitting on a couch in his recording studio in Nashville last month, laughed at the memory. “And now I’m holding things up. It’s like, ‘Oh, crap!’ So you just try and run as fast as you can and get out of there.” His expression turned thoughtful. “It’s gotta be some kind of record. I don’t know who has hugged that many presidents in that short of time.”
