    We all hate the trope "Houston, we have a problem," but we do have a problem in Houston with talkative, inattentive crowds at live shows.

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: John Conquest Turns Both Barrels on Country-Music Poll

    People have often referred to Lonesome, Onry and Mean as a curmudgeon (look it up), as a guy with a permanent hangover, bad temper and well... you get the idea.

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: Phil Lee's So Long, It's Been Good to Know You

    Phil Lee & the Sly Dogs, "A Night In the Box" The inimitiable Phil Lee is not one of your grandma's Nashville stars. No, he's one of those barely discovered left-side-of-Nashville writers who probably doesn't even know where Music Row is. On his third solo album, So Long It's Been Good To ... More >>

    Tonight: Tommy Womack at a Pasadena House Concert

    Tommy Womack is one of the wackiest, most manic songwriters to ever pass through Nashville.
