The newspaper reviews have been excellent. There was even one recently that didn’t mention his wife! Imagine that! It was all about the music! One reviewer said his show would have been perfect if he had played more of his older songs. I guess the skeptics aren’t alone in not being crazy about Love Pain. If the record is “a reflection of his marriage”, ‘nuff said.
There are rumors that they are filming a new DVD at some of the recent and upcoming shows; there are rumors that he’s producing a Greatest Hits CD; there are rumors he’s making a new record; there are rumors he’s extending the tour.
These are good rumors, Mr. Urban. These are the rumors that give us hope that you haven’t abandoned your career that was skyrocketing before you met the Washed Up & Washed Out one. Our hope for you is that you can get back to being one of Nashville’s brightest and best. Our hope for you is that Nashville accepts you back. Unfortunately, your credibility with your fans has taken a big hit with your diva behavior of late. That credibility, sadly, will never be reclaimed. Certainly, all relationships have their ups and downs. Hopefully your relationship with your fans is on the way up, and past transgressions will fade. The hurt will always be there, but we’ll be proud of you, nonetheless.
Oh, and Keith... make sure you say “Hi” to your Mum for us. We miss her. You do remember her, right? She used to be “your biggest fan”.
