1. I like Mindy Smith just fine, but sometimes I think she’s more famous than Gillian Welch because of some sick joke on the part of the universe. I’d be open to arguments that I’m wrong.
2. I am not a big fan of Fergie, but damn this is fun.
3. How can you not love a man that puts a sousaphone in his video? If rap from Nashville has to have a distinctive sound, I hope it’s the sound of a sousaphone.
4. It has nothing to do with Nashville, but I do think that Beyonce is so damn hot at the beginning of this video that she may, in fact, be utterly irresistible. I ask you, who here sees that smoke rolling out from between her lips and does not have to shift in their seat?
