Where in the World is Keith's Muse?

We have received word that the Muse is taking an extended holiday and will be sending in cards from a variety of exotic locations looking for a place to land. Here is the first one we received.

ah, how true, how true......and so evident following that heinous display of a song at the opry

i like this blog - very timely

maclen said...

Yeah your right Urban Myths, it seems the orbs muse, his creativity and imagination have all taken a vacation from is life with kidman, of what I hear about this lousy new song... so doublewide, what's up with this song? Is it a new single... part of an upcoming album? Or did he simply rustle up a reject or hapharzardly piece it together to try to get back on the good side of Kidzilla?

doublewide said...

maclen, the latter i believe, that is to get into her good graces....the song is trite, cliche, and no meat and just plain bad.....it does seem like he put it together haphazardly and without much thought at all. so beneath what he's capable of.

NK has scared the heck outta his muse.....

anybody have a link if maclen cares to have a listen?

doublewide said...

forgot to say, i HOPE to the good lord it's not indicative of his next album, or he's toast.

the word is he's is going all the way back to Golden Road and releasing YLGIMS......yikes! desperation? i'm hoping this isn't true.

Imahick said...

We don't know if "Sunshine" is going to be on an album...God forbid. But we do know that he announced in an interview on radio yesterday that he is going to release a song from an album he did SIX years ago as a single.

The song (You Look Good in My Shirt) is a good fun song, but it's from an album he released in 2002. He apparently re-recorded it for release.

If this is true (his words) I think this is a sign of desperation. Keith must be getting pressure from his label to get something on the radio and they must have decided that none of the songs on his last CD would get much air play, so he's gone back to one that should have been a single in the first place.

If he doesn't put something out, he could essentially be WITHOUT anything new on the radio for over a year. He has to get something out there or he will fade into the background.

This is a good song, but if the man's muse hadn't gone on vacation, he'd have written something new and relevant and released that.

To me, this is just more proof that the man is struggling creatively. Gee... I wonder what has changed in his life since his last true success musically?

Please don't give me the usual BS...it's obvious that his creativity has been snuffed out by Kidman. Good Lord ... he looks uncomfortable around her...but did you see the pictures of him with Sara Buxton at the New Artist's party in Vegas? When he's performing on stage ... he looks happy and confident and comfortable. With Sara Buxton, he looked like he was having a blast. There was more chemistry between them in those few pictures on Getty Images than in all the pictures I've seen of Keith and his BBP.

TamiKay38 said...

OMG!!! Maybe Keith's muse should visit YouTube and get a little inspiration ...

You HAVE to check out this link!

http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=658KDwu0soY

This is an Australian group, The Ten Tenors, and MAN, can they inspire!

TamiKay38 said...

Forgot to include the lyrics ... Sorry!

Here's to the heroes
Those few who dare
Heading for glory
Living a prayer

Here's to the heroes
Who change our lives
Thanks to the heroes
Freedom survives

Here's to the heroes
Who never rest
They are the chosen
We are the blessed

Here's to the heroes
Who aim so high
Here's to the heroes
Who do or die

Everytime the camera at the ACM's panned to Pregzilla she did this totally forced and stupid laugh... Sitting in the audience, they BOTH looked out of place tonight although I thought Keith did alright with Tu compania...slight song that it is,

one thing I will say about "Shirt" is that they are trying to bring Sexy Back.... sexy Keith ? He been one a long time..

woriedmonkey said...

that should read, he been gone a long time although he showed his face a few times dueting with CU.
By the way, anyone else think that most of the male performers suckedddddd tonight. AT least keith sounded fresh..

"No comment required her hand placement says it all"

Huh, after jolie's twin bump, kidman's desperate to show off her "grapefruit"...

doublewide said...
"maclen, the latter i believe, that is to get into her good graces....the song is trite, cliche, and no meat and just plain bad........"

so, doublewide berryhill, the orb is releasing a song that he released 6 years ago...BK? (before kidman)... because his AK songs have been a complete washout. First a rehash g-hits cd that went nowhere, now rehashed versions of past songs... next you can find the orb playing Branson to grandmothers... kidman will fit right in with that crowd!

maclen said...

... so I see that the orb got his sorry behind kicked up and down the country stage by chesney, underwood... paisley.. et al... again. Yeah and I'm sure this rehashed single, retreaded from the days before he tied himself to the flakey self indulgant and self absorbed anchor will really get him back into country contention! The anchor may not weigh that much more than when they met, but he's now sinking as fast as she is.

realitycheck said...

If they are going to release YLGIMS as a single its not such a crazy idea. Its gotten airplay in the past, was number 60 on the charts without officially being released, and is a concert favorite. Not a bad way to tide over the fans until the new release and maintain a presence on radio. However, I havent noticed Keith being played any less.

Keith may not have won any awards tonight but he gave the best performance bar none. He was more than worthy of receiving an award but seeing him there tonight, looking good, performing his heart out, his wife glowing, a baby on the way. I couldn't help but smile.

Lisa said...

I wanna know why he cares so much about getting back into the graces of something he tried so desperately to leave?? (Country Music)

Guess he knows he sucks at 'rock' I dont hear him or the PR rambling about rock anymore.

What on Earth is it about KU & BP? DO they have some kind of fight going on? I laughed when BP broke out into ISAG. My thoughts were "Keith cant run this time." I was so certain that the camera would go to them both, but it indeed not. Wish we could have seen the reaction.

What's the deal with Carrie? She seems to have signed some kind of commitment with them both. They were using her as a Tool all night long. I hope she realizes that & wakes up! She never needed it. They appeared a bit surprised when Carrie didnt turn to them when she was announced as winner. Really, watch that period again. Something just doesnt look right about the whole KU/CU thing.

Darn.. wanted to type more. It's 8:30am. Where's the gossip???

Lisa said...

P.S.

The google alerts coming from Aus are giving us a BIG clue at what KU/NK wanted. I'm sorry, but NK didnt steal ANYTHING, much less 'the show' and KU was far from being made KING!!!

SettleDown said...

Wherever the MUSE is, she obviously took the STYLIST with her. OMG


I was wondering, can she actually speak with those lips?

notachance said...

In now way did NK steal anyone's thunder last night. She is finally fading into the background of the country music scene - they don't care who she is, and that is exactly how it should be. Reba's remark to her would've worked on any one of the EOTY nom's wives had they been preggers. Of course, we all know KC needs to ask mom & dad about the birds AND the bees before he'll ever show up with someone that's preggers.

Now, as far as re-releasing YLGIMS - if, and I say a big IF he's done that with say - DJ Debo and done a remix on it, then I think maybe they might have something there. But, if he just took that song and sang it again in his current voice and didn't do something edgy I will have to give him the giant "L" award for "loser".

keith ALWAYS puts on the best performance.....that is nothing new. BUT HE HAS NOTHING NEW! we'll see how much creative ability the anchor has sucked out of him, when and if he puts out some new music.

as usual, he looked like a clown in that suit....and why can't the freakin woman sit and watch her hubby perform??? huh? noooooooo instead, she is on the FREAKIN BUS....yeah, just glowing (more like glowering)on his bus.

phoney phoney phoney.....cause it wasn't all about HER.

doublewide said...

LOL LOL, that's a hoot

Imahick said...

NK's dress was very nice ... best thing she's worn in five years ... unfortunately the constant crotch grabbing was a detractor.

Keith looked horrendous. Tommy should keep his hand me downs and donate them to the third world.

The carrying on during the orange carpet walk was very staged looking. But I got the message ... she has a big belly. I got that!

Keith's performance was great. Most of the performers, esp. the guys, were off pitch. That includes George Strait (who appeared hammered), Kenny and Brad. Rodney was just horrid. But Keith was good...and he looked good. Tell me this...why did he have to refer to his sweet baby girl, AKA skankypants, in his performance? That was the only thing that tarnished it.

He didn't win because he is not about the music anymore. Kenny, Brad, King George...they're about the music. Rascal Flats...they're about the music. Keith is about celebrity ... and until the focus is back on his music, he will win no more country awards. That's my prediction.

I don't think he cares about his career anymore anyway. It's little more than a hobby to him now.

notachance said...

Hmmm.... maybe it's Keith choice for her NOT to be there when he performs. He knows he needs to play up the sex appeal and if he knows she's sitting 10' away that could affect his performance and that IS the bottom line there. I'm sure he wouldn't be allowed on set for a love scene of hers....

Two sides gals.....

Lisa said...

Maybe they have an agreement after she made a yawning spectacle of herself that at times like that she will be out of the picture? I can only guess.

I thought she was kerpluncked right there though the entire time.

I wanted to know what was up with the brunette in front of him during the performance that was glares to him while he was singing & pointing to herself every time a woman was placed in the song?! It looked pretty personal. I thought he called HER babygirl. Which girls were part of the Buxton band/backup?? How were these girls that stood there with him for the performance chosen?

Well, that is the reality now... they are just bit players now in the big show. Kidman posing with her hands trying to get every fraction of an inch of her bump noticed... after jolie, nobody cares.... the orb wearing his high school prom tux... and losing in his two paltry categories... well he isnt making any awards show news headlines. Seriously, back to jolie, since her twins confirmation, kidman truly is a footnote. Its just so obviously noticable now.

Great line doublewide... not glowing... but glowering! Well, it's pretty obvious, she was afraid she's fall asleep on national tv, so he high tailed it out of their! But seriously, it's a planned PR strategy.. after being tipped by the monkeylanders who read Urban Myths blog, they now know that kidman is bad new for the orbs music and she must leave the vicinity...

maclen said...

pps...

Just saw the arrival pics of kidman last night over at NK's Forehead:

http://nicolekidmansforehead.blogspot.com/

and I just noticed something... it's an obvious attemped optical illusion... once again she's wearing heavy padded ruffles over her bump to make it appear bigger. One third of her "bump" is ruffles and dress material bunching... "dont pay any attention to the man behind the curtain... or behind the ruffles...

doublewide said...

it's a shame, really....

he looks so happy when he's performing for somebody other than glowering-face...

and did you see how ginormous she looked? from one week to the next? good lord

doublewide said...

we were posting at the same time, maclen!

the pleats did add to the "ginormity" of the situation

keith is indeed the man behind the ruffles...what a shame

wastedemotion said...

The pleats and using her hand to pull the fabric really did wonders to make her look like she could actually be in her third trimester.

notachance said...

I did read today that she said the kid was kicking a lot when she was on the red carpet - could account for all the belly holding.

wastedemotion said...

notachance- Having been pregnant and have carried what I thought was a soccer player one of the times, I can assure you no baby kicks enough that you have to keep your hand on your crotch.

realitycheck said...

maclen, there are plenty of celeb watchers who are tired of Jolie and her bump, her obsession with creating a huge family, and carrying around this saintly facade. She is overexposed and not worth paying attention to.

cricket said...

At least Angie can manage to keep her hands out of her crotch when she is out in public. Kidman looks disgusting walking around with her hands there all the time. If there is anyone who is overexposed and not worth paying attention to it's the classless nasty Nicole Kidman
