    Michele showed me that a couple weeks ago. I'm not a fan of country, but that was really excellent! My 10-gallon hat's off to the guy.

    The background behind the writing of the song is pretty interesting:

    The detailed version is pretty funny, but you really have to feel for the guy.

    >I once flew across the country to take an audition. I arrived, but my instrument did not. It was misrouted baggage. It arrived the next day, but that was too late, so I ended up flying across the country at great expense (air fare, taxis, hotel room, meals, etc.) for no reason at all. I had no recourse whatsoever. Possibly I may have won that audition (I felt I could have won it, which is why I wanted to take it), so the negligence of the airlines potentially cost me a tremendous loss of income, professional reputation, and negatively altered the course of the rest of my life forever.
    >I do not trust airlines at all.
