I like to think of myself as a Christmas music connoisseur. I have more holiday music on my iPod than any other genre … more
Julie Roberts packed the house at Nashville's Listening Room Cafe for her CMA Fest Fan Party with approximately 200 fans showing up to hear her sing. Roberts is hands down one of the most underrated country singers on the planet. Her 20+ song set was one of the greatest performances I have seen in quite some time.
