Could not help but notice that our local news rag, The Tennessean, highlights an above-the-fold, Page One headline: "Retired Garth still swings for radio hits." I was not aware that my jest about Garth Brooks' box sets would be prescient. This is news? But more importantly, this is music?
The new box set, however, will not be hawked at Wal-Mart. The overly-laudatory article breathlessly informs us that, once the royalties are tallied up from this latest product, Garth "could surpass Elvis."
Looking forward to the postage stamp.
