A Family Reunion or Andy Griggs Makes History!

Hello out there, Country Music fans. I hope everyone had a good weekend, I know I did. But, now it's time to get back to business and I wanna start by talking about Reba's new video. It's for the song "Every Other Weekend" with Kenny Chesney.

I have mixed feelings on this one. I didn't like how they had Reba in the video without Kenny. It just seemed awkward to have her sitting on a bench singing and no performance shots of him. If Kenny wasn't allowed to be in it or unavailable to film, I feel like they should've just left Reba out of it as well... it would have flowed better in my opinion.

What I did like, however, was the inclusion of Reba's TV daughter and son-in-law. Both actors did well in their roles as seperated parents who regret the choice they made, but stick to it because they feel the other is happy with how things are. They don't say a word in the video, but you see and feel the pain the characters are in. I thought it showed that the Reba cast didn't just say they're like family... they really were. Reba's also included Melissa Peterman (Barbara Jean) on her tour with Kelly Clarkson (who also guested on the show). So, do you think the video was Van and Cheyenne's future or no? Post your opinion in the comments and let me know.

In other Country Music news, Andy Griggs set a record! He recently became the first Country artist to participate in the World Series of Poker. I won't say how he did, because the tournament will begin airing on July 22nd on ESPN. You can catch it every Tuesday. Fans have another reason for wanting to check it out. During Day two, he performed not only the National Anthem, but the song "It's All About the Money" from his The Good Life CD. If you can't wait to find out how he did, check out his website, where you can learn all about his experience in the competition.

Well, that's about it for now. See ya next time! I leave you now with a couple screencaps from the Reba Video. You can see the real deal at RebaTV.
