I want to thank Super Fan Seth for turning me onto this new guy Frank Foster. Personally, I'm loving his video and surprised that Frank isn't already on a major label and a big tour. That's just my opinion. Let's see what YOU think! Watch the video and vote below! Thanks, Michael J

The Michael J Pledge
please use as often as you can!
"I promise whenever I see someone wearing a U.S. military uniform to walk up to them and simply say, Thanks."
Don't be surprised to hear me saluting our troops
on the show regularly. Politicians, I'm not a fan. But
for our family, Men and Women in Uniform. God Bless 'em!!
Amy Bowen, a Dallas-based singer-songwriter is suing country stars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood over their #1 2011 Country hit hit “Remind Me.” At the time Ms. Bowen lived in Nashville and used the stage name Lizza Connor.
She says she wrote “Remind Me” in 2007 and copyrighted the lyrics in 2008. She claims that the 2011 country hit was a rip-off of her song.
Her suit states that she played the song in public 19 times and played it at a workshop where songwriters Kelley Lovelace and Chris Dubois were present. Lovelace and Dubois were listed as co-writers with Brad Paisley on “Remind Me.”
The suit claims that Bowen's version of “Remind Me” is “substantially similar” to the Paisley-Underwood collaboration.
All it takes is your kiss to remind me
All I need is your touch to remind me
Take me to the place we started from
When love was young
Baby, remind me
The first chorus in the Paisley/Underwood song:
Been so long, bet you forget
The way I used to kiss your neck
Remind me, remind me
So on fire, so in love
Way back when we couldn't get enough
Remind me, remind me.
Amy Bowen is asking for in excess of $10 million from the song.
It's not the only country hit that's been challenged.
Justin Moore was sued last year by someone who claimed Moore's hit “Backwoods” was similar to a song he had written.
Another songwriter who will now NEVER get backstage passes to meet Tim McGraw sued Tim over his hit song “Everywhere”. A Federal judge dismissed that suit after ruling that there was no evidence Tim's song was directly copied.
