Ah, Dottie West. a legend! More for her lifestyle than her music. Her music was OK, but she really pushed out the boat in living the superstar life. Loads of very young men, booze & excesive spending which, sadly, led to bankrupsy.
As for the music, I prefer her daughter Shelley's stuff.

ICYMI
Turns out it wasn't an April Fool
Taylor Swift really did surprise guests at Nashville's fabled Bluebird Cafe over the weekend by performing an intimate set.
The Shake It Off singer-songwriter hit the stage during songwriter Craig Wiseman's gig, which he performed in front of 40 people. Swift's set on Saturday was also bittersweet because she used to sing at the cafe in Tennessee early in her career.
"I wanted to say a big thank you to the Bluebird Cafe," she told the audience. "I think any songwriter in town would echo my sentiments and say that this is kind of the only place where this exists - this particular place where you get to come and hear the writer's take on the songs they've put out into the world."
She also spoke about her song Better Man, which she wrote for Little Big Town.
The gig was recorded for a documentary in honour of Bluebird Cafe's 35th anniversary.
Among those in the crowd was Big Machine chief Scott Borchetta, who discovered Swift when she was 14 years old.

Jason Aldean - Rearview Town (Broken Bow Records)
Released April 13
Image
Amazon UK - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rearview-Town- ... B07B4WJTH7
SPOTIFY - https://open.spotify.com/album/5f34GtT1 ... am7eCkRESQ

Are you missing Aldean's new album on Spotify?

Jason Aldean's 'Rearview Town' to Test New Model for Spotify, YouTube: Streaming First for Paying Subscribers
For the first two weeks of its release, Jason Aldean’s Rearview Town, out Friday, will be available only on the premium tier of all subscription services, Billboard has confirmed.
The move, unique for a major artist on both Spotify and YouTube, indicates a shift from both streaming giants' previous policies of not allowing artists to dictate to which tiers and markets they make their music available. The major labels negotiated the rights to window releases in their recent licensing agreements with the services, but no big acts immediately took advantage of the ability.
The two-week premium window for Aldean's album also applies to multi-tier services such as Amazon and Pandora: Aldean’s music will not be available on those free tiers until after the 14-day premium exclusive ends.
The Broken Bow/BMG release will be immediately available on subscription-only streaming services Apple Music and Tidal (in which Aldean is a partner) as usual, as well as available for purchase via download or as a physical CD.

Whether he’s trying to be an 80s rocker or a 00s hip-hopper, it just all sounds wrong and I struggled to find a single track that if I heard it on the radio I wouldn’t want to change channels immediately...Either way I’d say avoid this at all costs unless you’re a diehard fan - Duncan Warwick (1 STAR) Country Music People.. :)

"Surprising fans for almost a decade after his genre-bending breakthrough smash 'She's Country,' Aldean still revels in surprising fans and pushing the boundaries of Country music." - USA Today
"Twelve years after Aldean helped recenter the genre, these sounds aren’t novel in country music. This is Aldean’s world; he inhabits it more convincingly than most." - Paste
"With its programmed beats and high-octane guitars, the blustery production matches Aldean's angst-filled vocal delivery." - Rolling Stone
"What sets Aldean apart from the pack is that he's still the guy from Macon, GA, who remembers the folks who have supported him from the beginning. That's why he's connected with audiences representing rearview towns all over the world." - CMT

I first heard Cherry Lee Mewis some years ago on Paul Jones Blues show. I bought the track 7 posted a video of it on these boards.
Another member here accurately pointed out that her name sounds like a very drunk person trying to say Jerry Lee Lewis.

OOPS MOMENT
Canadian singer Shania Twain has apologised for an "awkward" remark quoted in a Guardian interview, in which she said she would have voted for Trump if she could have. :wink:
On Twitter on Sunday, she said the question caught her off guard and she regrets her answer. "I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it's clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current president."
In the profile, the singer candidly discussed her divorce from long-time collaborator Robert "Mutt" Lange as well as her traumatic upbringing, which included being sexually and physically abused by her stepfather.

But towards the end of the article, she was asked about the US election and said she "would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest".
"Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn't be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don't want ****. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?"
