Battle of the Bands Results: Mr. Nobody beats Kenny Chesney

 Mac McAnally shut out Kenny Chesney on my latest Battle of the Bands. The Battle fell on  Mac's Birthday. Announcing the results a bit more kindly one could say Mac edged out Kenny. Honestly the outcome was similar to a soccer match as the songwriter knocked off the Country star two to nothing.

As always we celebrate the winners! 

                                                  "It's My Job"


"Down the Road"


I'll see you down the road! Stayed tune as my blog continues and has posts. I won't have a Battle of the Bands on August 1st. I am putting my participation in the Battle of the Bands on hiatus. Maybe I will jump back in down the road. The lowest votes maybe since my first battle. The lowest pageviews for a Battle of the Bands this year in a month where I have had the most pageviews ever.  Sounds like a good time for a hiatus. Thanks for visiting and I will see you soon!

Battle of the Bands: Back Where I Come From

 It's summer time. Today's song is featured in Jimmy Buffett's set quite a bit because the songwriter has a side gig playing in Jimmy's band. Anyway today will be songwriter versus country star. Let me know which one you like the best in the comments and I will announce a winner in a week or so. 

Mac McAnally 


Kenny Chesney


Mac or Kenny let me know! See you soon!

Battle of the Bands Results: Sarah McLachlan flies away with it

 The Battle of the Bands results for Blackbird are in. Sarah McLachlan flies away with it defeating the legendary folk rockers Crosby, Stills and Nash 4 to 1.


After the win she was found "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy"


Some say the wait for results was "Building a Mystery"


She stated "I Will Remember You"


She was graceful and dedicated "Fallen" to CSN


Apparently CSN had "Sweet Surrender"


I made all that up, but she won 4 to 1.
