Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, November 17, 2009...
- George Strait is set to star in the kinda-sequel to his movie Pure Country. I hope he's taken some acting lessons since then, geez.
- Ken Ober has passed away. I spent many an afternoon as a young teen watching him on Remote Control.
- The old Oasis are now the new... I dunno. But, the remaining members are starting a soon to be monikered band.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
