Mad respect going out to Vince Gill who yesterday at his concert in Kansas City, Missouri left the confines of the Kauffman Center to confront the ass-hats from Westboro Baptist Church who decided to picket the show due to Vince being an "adulter" in their eyes.

Kelly Clarkson does Vince Gill proud by covering "Go Rest High On That Mountain"

This video of Kelly Clarkson performing Vince Gill's Go Rest High On That Mountain as a tribute to her guitar player's uncle who passed away is actually several months old, but GodTube recently posted it and now it's trending on Google.

This is part 3 of my CMAs performance review series. If you missed parts 1 and 2, you can read them here and here. Now for the final instalment. The CMAs continued with Jason Aldean performing his hit single ‘Take A Little Ride’. His vocals were okay, much better than on his earlier performance, although actually the backing vocals were pitched wrongly I feel and actually made all the vocals sound out of tune in places even though Jason was on point. I think in this instance they may have needed Jason’s vocals to be louder in the mix, because... Read more
