I love CMT and so does my husband. However, remember the days when you could tune in and find nothing but videos..all day long? Some of the shows are good, but come on guys..let's see more video time!

Chip, CMT is a terrible band - I would compare them to a classic Lookout Mountain Country Jazz Fusion Classical band that you may be familar with - Mark Blowers and the Flying Beds of Sun. Also, the group Joey and his Truck, another on of your favorites, would fall into this catagory.

I am writing to let you know about one of Rascal Flatts biggest fans, Emily Noxon. Emily performed onstage with the band at their concert in Indianapolis Saturday after winning a Brickfish campaign sponsored by childhood health promoter MilkRocks. Emily’s rendition of the hit song “What Hurts the Most” beat out more than 340 entries and was viewed thousands of times across the Internet. She also won the chance to meet with an A&R executive from Lyric Street Records. Entries can be viewed at
