  1. A new CD, yes, please Bette please.

    Don, have you gone to the hotel she tweeted about a few days ago in hopes of a run in or at least a Bette sighting? You need to head over there for drinks.

    I would love for Bette to record another Janis Ian song or two, she has so much wonderful material.

    1. No. I didn’t even try….I thought she had already been here and then tweeted the photo of the hotel. Little did I know she was here writing all this time. I hope she finally puts out a CD of her own material….and you know Janis Ian has a slew of stuff for her to sing. i met her in an elevator while living here a couple of years back…..tiny!

  2. I recently read Janis Ian’s Autobiography and she talks about The Bluebird Cafe, I’m sure you are aware of the place Don. I wonder if Bette spent time there.

    I would love to visit Nashville and Memphis someday.

    1. Yes, it’s legendary here. I played there once with my brother and about passed out afterwards I was so nervous. I think. but I can’t say for sure that Bette played there early on in her career….

  3. I am taking a break and eating Cracker Jack microwaved with a Reese’s peanut butter cup and slices of milky way, stirred up with a spoon. Easy way to make friends and influence people, and wow, it worked….anyways, ahem….IS BETTE MAKING A COUNTRY MUSIC mp3 or 10 or 12/`what do you call a new release these days?/’ and……Is Neil Young, John Cougar Mellencamp, or anyone who is like, I dunno, a country music icon appearing?
    … I know, Let’s spread rumors gossip and malicious mischief since this world really thrives on that!

    1. It does thrive on that, unfortunately….doubt it will be country….who knows what direction she’s going in….and I would love a Reesie Cup right about now….

  4. Let’s hope for a fantastic album with a world tour to back it up. Fingers crossed in here.

    I also would love to visit Memphis, Nashville and, of course, Dollywood. 🙂 By the way, I wonder what a Divineland Theme Park would look like…
