Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of rednecks, white- and blue-collars who have all finished their chores for the day and ready to kick back, swig a few Crazy Canuck brews and party hearty… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
One song is all it took me to invite singer Amy Rose to be a guest on the show today. If you can find a woman whose voice, demeanor and spirit is any more country than this young woman’s, sign her and get her to Nashville. But in the meantime, give a listen to the pipes on Amy Rose in her rising country single, “I Just Want You to Know.” Or her earlier one, “Redneck Reunion.” That’s a fun song and she sings the hell out of it.
AMY ROSE audio excerpt: "We said, 'We don't want to insult anybody.' Rednecks are rednecks; they just want to have fun. We tried to walk a fine line in '(Redneck Reunion) Party Like A Redneck.'"
Look, I’m not your typical country fan. But every so often, I hear a song that grabs me. In the last few years, it’s been Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson who I’ve invested money in via iTunes and I’ll do it again for Amy Rose. What do they all have in common? Attitude, a sense of fun and a little mischief, and, of course, great tunes. Tonight, we’re not only going to talk with Amy Rose, she’s going to sing a bit for us, too.
