"Daughter. Country singer Loretta Lynn has died at 90 this week. The daughter of a coal miner herself whose songs about life and love set her on top of the country music industry. This morning, we remember Loretta Lynn, with Brian Mansfield, managing editor of the country insider with his tech. She was a wonderful, wonderful woman She was the kind of person that would just make you feel completely at home and at ease no matter how starstruck you were. And making people at ease, you know, it was such a gift given all of the adversity she had faced in her life and how she turned that adversity into something everyone can relate to. Well, and I really think that was why she was able to relate to people so well. I mean, she literally was the living myth of the rags to riches country music story coming from just absolute poverty in rural Kentucky to being an international music icon. She didn't just sing, she wrote all these songs. That's what an achievement that was. Well, exactly. And she was one of the first artists in any form of popular music in our lifetimes to really write this songs that she was known for actually went back and looked when she had her first number one hit. Don't come home at drinking with 11 on your mind in 1967. It had been two full years since any female solo artist it had a number one hit in country and there had only been three other women in the entire decade that had done it and none of them wrote their own songs. Loretta did. And she was really bold because her songs were honest. She wrote songs that were controversial and some radio stations didn't want to play them. And I don't know that it was that she was bold. Although she certainly was, I think it was just there wasn't any filter between what she thought and what she said and what she wrote and she would just say things and this stuff would come out. A couple of collaborations I want to talk to you about. We played to her classic with Conway Twitty heading into this segment. And then there was Jack White in 2004. She teamed up with the guitarist from white stripes to produce a Grammy winning album. That to me was maybe one of her greatest achievements. It really was because it brought her to a whole new generation of fans. It really showed what she could do on what people knew her for. And just how well respected she was across the entire musical world. And it was just, I remember those two together, there was a big party here for all of them. When that came out, and it was just, you would look at Jack White and tell how much he absolutely adored her and she from a young talented star like him. What would you like people to remember about her? Just how funny she was because she was just there's such a wonderful humor to those songs when she's being a real Spitfire. And

"Wedding industry is worth about $2 billion a year and Elvis themed weddings are pretty dominant. Is that right? And now, yeah, I didn't know how much Elvis themed weddings dominated. And they end up and iconic, it's an iconic campy American tradition, the Elvis themed wedding. You seem disturbed by it. I mean, if I were Priscilla Presley or Lisa Marie, I would have moved on getting rid of that a long time ago. Because it is, I mean it's a caricature of Elvis, but it's also makes him look cheesier. I mean, he was a great artist. So I don't have a problem with this new company that owns all of Elvis imaging. I actually I do. Why does this not a new sell it? Well, no, it's changed hands. One of them, I don't know if it was Lisa Marie or Priscilla, somebody in the family sold this recently. Here's the thing. Like, I hear what you're saying. And definitely, I guess it infringes on their ability to make money off the likeness of the king. But I would argue, let me step over the other side of the line now. And I would argue that Elvis themed weddings are a unique part of Americana and American pop culture. And I don't know, it seems really shabby that you can't go to Vegas now and get married, you know, in an Elvis wedding chapel with an Elvis impersonator. Like something. At what point does something that iconic become sort of the public domain? And we all own a little bit of that. Well, it's not right now, because it's the same thing with Marilyn Monroe, somebody owns those pictures, that image. Those films. I'm sad. I know that you're too classy. You're too, you know, whatever or to ever have an Elvis themed wedding, but I think oh, excuse me. American fun. Excuse me. I mean, I actually, with my wedding, said it's the only one I miss so far. I guess Conway Twitty's image is going to have to step up. It's going to have to be the Conway Twitty. The wedding chapel. When I think about it, like if I were going to have a Vegas celebrity themed wedding, I might as well lean into carrot topper Gallagher because that would work. That would fit my kind of thing. They might show up these days. I make that sound like carrot tops not making bank. Carrot Top is killing in Las Vegas. My silver best friend, Jeff. Every time he and helene go to Vegas, they see either Rod Stewart or Carrot Top. Not a real connection there between the two men, but he said the act is really great. I mean, you and I know him for coming into the studio and was kind of a goofball when he was starting out, but the guy is like. He's a good businessman. You know what? He is. These things don't happen just by random chance. Like, oh, I'm just sitting here playing Xbox and oligarch gazillion dollars. Like he's worked really hard. He spent years on the road. He's a good businessman. And he made the deals that he made. But I'm still sad. You can argue all day long about the legalities and the licensing. And I'm still going to be sad that you can't go have an Elvis wedding anymore. Like it's already over. If you were planning to have an Elvis wedding this summer, these cease and desist letters went out and by today as the time you're hearing this, this is in effect. These chapels are having to shut it down. And I don't know that just having a dude who looks like Elvis, but isn't described as being Elvis, will be enough. I have a feeling that they'll come for that too. I think they will come to that also. You know, it's just going to have to be a different celebrity. Maybe it could be like sting, a sting lookalike marries you, right? And he's looking down at the couple. He's criticizing what they're wearing. He's criticizing where they're going on their honeymoon. I mean, it's a different vibe, but there you go. And I just. We can't have anything nice, you know? We can't have anything nice and in late stage consumer capitalism. My money, my mind. It's bob and sherry. Geico asks, how would you love a chance to save some money on insurance?

"Now the place is owned by music industry giant Mike curb. And we're going for a conversation with Bobby tomberlin, one of the most successful songwriters in country music today. Curb word is a place where the energy is always flowing. And as a songwriter on staff there, Bobby is expected to bring his a game every single day. He's got to stay inspired and he's expected to write songs on demand for superstars. And that's just what he does. A lifelong singer and guitarist this Grammy CMA and ACM nominee was born with a great set of pipes. That's how we describe it in radio. Bobby got his start in the music business when he was 11 years old, as an announcer for W LVN. His little hometown radio station in luverne, Alabama, and you're going to hear him tell that story in this interview. Now he's also got mad guitar skills, and here's how he learned to play like a pro. I would sit in my room, and I would play a Waylon Jennings record. And I would pretend I was in a recording studio, and when it came time for the lead, the solo, I pretended that I was the guitar player, and I had to play it well. That's what I call a work ethic, even at a young age, right? This interview was recorded in one of the writing rooms at curb word, where there was a guitar in the corner and a keyboard and a huge blackboard on the wall, just waiting for lyrics to the next country song to be written. I'd heard a story about how Bobby once sang a duet with the great Loretta Lynn and so I started out the interview by asking him to take us back to that incredible bucket list moment. She invited me to sing one of the Conway Twitty Loretta Lynn duets with her at her July 4th celebration up at her ranch. She had a big 4th of July festival there thousands of people would attend and of course I jumped at the chance, but I'm not going to lie to you. I'm usually pretty calm. I was really nervous because she says, oh yeah, arrive maybe an hour early and we'll go over it and make sure the key is right. Well, I get there and the leader says, well, no, she says there's no need to rehearse. And I'm like, I've never even sang with her. What was the song? It was called lead me on. So tell me what happened? Well, she called me out there. I was really nervous and she was seated in this chair like a throng. Like the queen that she is. And I was nervous and really doing a lot of praying and, you know, I never sang that song before and thank goodness I remember my lines, and it worked, but however I was told it was going to be in one key, then when they started, it was like a whole step lower, so trust me, that was as low. And I can go pretty low. How low? But that was one time. I mean, I was like reaching for it. And I'm like, I don't want this to fail, you know? But it turned out good. It was like a roller coaster ride. And the next morning, I started seeing pictures of the performance and seeing pictures of me sitting there with lower Atlanta and I'm like, I can't even believe this because as a kid, down in south Alabama, I went to see Conway and Loretta in so many other greats. Then I just started thinking about that experience and then other wonderful experiences that I've had, and then this song. I've lived country music. Just really wrote itself. And so you end up in a recording studio, not just any recording studio. Well, I wasn't planning on even recording this song because well, number one, I knew it wasn't going to be pitched to another artist because it was my story. And I thought at first, maybe this story was just a little too much of like, look what I've done. And then I just happened to walk into wishbone studios and muscle souls Alabama to visit an old buddy of mine, Billy Lawson, who recently bought the studio. And I walk in there and oh my gosh, it was like walking back into 1979. The equipment updated, but the vibe, the atmosphere was so like Hank Williams junior recorded family tradition. He really found his sound there. But people like the temptations, Roy Orbison, recently T Graham Brown, Sammy Kershaw, had recorded new records there. And Billy says, you need to record here. And I'm like, you know what? I have just the perfect song. We're going to play that song right now. Would you introduce it for us? I will. Well, here's some pretty much a four minute story of my life in song. I've lived country music.

"So so yeah. I mean just kinda guy that lots of people evelyn nelson. That didn't even really know what countries was and not just america worldwide. You know and so. And i think that gets to kinda dichotomy of this era is that you have artists like willie waylon who are crossing over. While being more trudeau hardcore honky tonk spirit than nashville had allowed anybody to be in a long time. When you had people like bandy and and johnny paycheck early days that were kind of underground that were doing that stuff but nobody. That big was annette hardcore. And then he'd got emmylou harris whose crossing over kind of in the other direction. But being accepted by nashville. It's funny 'cause you know. Wayland is still frequently regularly. Dissed by the country music establishment. I mean if you look in the hall of fame. Awards seem presentations. They're still holding grudges against wave and willie they. It seems like they just gave out Surrendered everybody loves willy. You know but then you've got dolly parton. Who makes this clear. Break with nashville. She goes to l. a. Gets a new management team. She does it basically disco album which is a pretty solid out. And then she she she breaks into. Hollywood does nine to five which is a massive hit movie which was a huge cultural milestone. And she has this. Massive pop hit with nine to five also went to the top of the country charts but it was a pop song and shudder shudder being fielded at studio fifty four so she just by being dolly was able to cross over and still maintain the loyalty and love of country audience in a way that like kenny rogers in the same period. Kenny rogers is a guy who comes out of the candidate. folks seen. He's now like the first edition Has a big psychedelic. It and sixty seven and then does version of route. Mel tillis is ruby. Don't take your love to town which is kind of his entree into country. But then by seventy five or seventy six when the time. Lucille is a utah And the gambler. Of course kenny. Rogers becomes this massive cultural institution right around this time and he's just tucked away. They just they just mentioned him twice. They talk about pets. Get conway twitty in there. Because they talk about him. In loretta lynn which. I'm glad way that shine. And i think talked about him in the rockabilly episode earlier. But i'm trying to remember the talk talk about blend chambal any the day. Go into detail about him in early folks. They mentioned him briefly in the last episode. But they did not. I don't think they did glen campbell justice in any way shape or form. They didn't mention. Jimmy reed rebound mentions because what kind of see of kit. You're kind of following in the same pop country footsteps as the glen campbell. Bobby goes bro. And mac davis you know and i think and i think they're probably like i don't know i guess you like a housewife. You know in the sixty seventy meetings. You know kenny. Rod and bobby goldsboro arrived. Yeah you know. But if you're like some i don't know some retro leaning country person you know looking back at all the greats you're gonna put bobby goldsboro and mac davis in going campbell. Started get respect now. But cheney rod put those guys the margin so i think that might be. I'm not a fan of those guys myself..

"When i listened to him in the context of the time that i realize how they are at in these soul song elements in the base plane is soul style and the steel guitar by sneaky. Pete is just crazy. Totally unique brilliant stuff. But so i get where. They weren't quite rock and they were just frankly ahead of their time. You know this is going to be enormous five years later when the eagles start doing it and then ultimately is going to have a bigger influence country music. And i think that's one of the reasons i'm okay with him talking about gram parsons kris. Kristofferson and bob dylan so much and ignoring jerry lee lewis and conway twitty is because in the long run it was these outsiders that kind of influenced the future of country music more so than these prodigal rockabilly guys and then and then they take us back into kris kristofferson for a deep dive into his story which again i sort of bristle because his singing voice i remember some rolling stone review a long time ago that the worst thing about the singer songwriter. Era was you had singers. Who couldn't ride like carly simon trying to write songs and you had songwriters who couldn't sing like kris kristofferson singing songs but honestly at this point in time with the whole leonard cohen revival in everything kris kristofferson. Singing doesn't sound that bad. It's strong ranches is limited but you know. His voice is strong deep. Baritone but i was kind of annoyed that they played so much kris kristofferson versions of his songs instead of say the right price version for the good times or at at really bug me when they played christians version of sunday. Morning coming down. Instead of johnny cash is but created choice i. I can't really squawk about that. Because i guess we sorta kinda have to kind of have the spotlight chris. The man and also too. I mean he's so i mean. After his around the time a second now he was selling as many many records as like almost me record the people who recording songs. It's called twice. Yeah had to go out. And like i mean a evil that was like a prime time country songwriters. I mean. maybe he wasn't included. Can there wasn't enough room for you. Know with all stuff going on but there's only one other songwriter. Who was getting as much traction in nashville back in the back in nineteen seventy nine hundred. Seventy one is kris kristofferson and that was mickey newbury. Yeah let me start to have a bit of of so but he was totally ignored for special. Am i guess. Because mickey was the most of my classes chris. 'cause yet 'cause mickey had short hair and even though he did write some pretty revealing stuff. He wasn't quite as shocking as chris was. You know yeah. And also he's not available to be interviewed and and and there's not as much footage of christopher of him as their as christopherson so. I don't know if i've ever seen performance footage of of making newbury but one thing that really comes out here on youtube. But w he hit record with the american troja. The a couple of tv shows that there. Yeah yeah. and that's that's in the mid seventies officer course the most famous performer. That the one thing that really comes through though is what a pretty boy christopherson was and you can really see why hollywood was drawn to him in a why johnny cash put him on. Tv made his career because the guy is a know..

"You're getting this from the viewpoint of a fighting there to say yankee so forgive me From a from a northerner who is not a country person boomer and so people like leon russell and kris kristofferson and bob dylan and grand parsons who are all going to get lots of coverage Abbas said are really aggressively important to him and they are important figures in american music and country music. So i don't have beef with that but this is one gonna have to get the little crucial with him. Because they leave out. Jerry and conway twitty early gets. He has a second or two screen time in the context of novelty songs in a duet with low right. But i thought that was a real missed opportunity to cover these prodigal rockabilly guys. These are the guys the young people who left country music in the fifties to be rockabilly artists. And come and i don't wanna say crawling back. But they kind of craw back because their careers died on the pop charts. Jerry lewis for number of reasons but they come back to new thing. I mean if he knows a lot of country stars like late sixties and early seventies had a rock roll. Pass that thing at one point sixty nine like right around the time when waylon did Handsome man and buck. Owens did Trying to be good hip thing for country dies to like you know do remakes old could drop roll hits. You know doubt kind of proud roots along with grand ole opry at those interesting nobody. Nobody really a points out but it happened. Yeah absolutely announced. Don't talk about the elvis. Sixty eight comeback special which to me is what kicks off all that rockabilly revival stuff. 'cause elvis doesn't comeback special in sixty eight and you get not just country. Artists do in rockabilly songs. But you get the who and blue cheer and it's just all over the place and they also could've tied waylon in with macarthur park which he does in this era another jimmy website. And they're gonna mention glen campbell during wichita lineman again briefly because they're focused on johnny cash in his tv show. They work those things. But i do wish that worked waylon in a little more. They get willie nelson in this episode. Not in full way but in the way they did roger millar last time where they have a segment about willie nelson and how. He's not fitting in nashville. But let's go ahead and summarize the big four segments of this episode the tease at the beginning. I'm gonna go ahead. Read the little lines that peter coyote reads reads about each of these topics.

Nominations followed by netflix's one hundred twenty nine. Then you have disney plus and only daniel have nbc quite a difficult situation. That is actually legitimately interesting. Because does that suggest that the the the stream is in the model. They have of being able to shovel enormous amounts of money at i. Guess more niche projects are actually able to create better work than the networks. Because i guess the networks are still thinking about broadcasting in the old fashioned sense of the word. Aren't they absolutely and this year. I mean look at disney plaza. Things the first time they are at the emmys is very new. Have paramount plus. There's so many kind of streamers apple a apple plus as well so but the fees. I don't believe in the death of linear television here a finger. I know you're a big sports fan. There are still certain events such as sports or the or you know kind of award ceremonies where everybody sits down and watch it. But you know the we need to rethink and perhaps be a little bit more creative because even if you look at the shows i mean from netflix's from disney plus they they were pushing the boundaries in a way when you look at the limited series you have michaela co if i may destroy your mayor of east town both on. Hbo the queen's gambit Own netflix so It it's very diverse and a very good list of nominees. I have to say so. Those ones the big winners or at least the big nominees. The burmese here. You have the crown from that flakes and also the mandalorian which is the star wars drama which has claimed critically they both have twenty four nominations each a followed by a disney's marvel series van division twenty nations. Of course they have this whole technical side. And that's why have so much nominations as well But you know i may destroy by mckellar co has a very respectable a number of nominations. Here he was ignored the golden globes. But i think the emmys kind of rectify. That i mean it. It's much better than the golden globes. That's what i can tell you about this list here. Is this a slight of nominations likely to cause an amount of existential panic At the broadcast and cable networks. Maybe a little bits. But at the same time i know it's been a strange year as well. Of course i in covert halted many productions. So you know. I think this is a kind of kind of a transition year so if you next year will be the final decision and and we can. We'll be able to see if they manage to step up their game on ought and just fine oi other any personal highlights any nominees that you will be cheering on especially loudly on awards night whenever the hell that is for sure i mean the comedy catheters griffin..

PM Tampa Bay With Brian Gorman on NewsRadio W F L A Bills are already being filed for the 2021 legislative session and our news radio W F L A legal correspondent Felix Vega is keeping track of them. Felix joins me now, and there's a couple that we're going to discuss. Let's start with one involving booking photos. That's pretty interesting. Yeah, This is an interesting one. Because this is cutting a lot of controversy over the years with the amount of time that you're booking photos are able to stay up online not only on geo websites, but then you see on certain other websites where, you know, booking photos just pop up of weird crimes of people commit. And to get the booking photos removed is becoming It has become very controversial in the last few years because they're those online companies that run these booking site photo or bookies photo sites. They're privately controlled. And so basically, you would have to get a lawyer to send a cease and desist letter to pull your booking photo off your sight. Whereas if you contact the jail, for example, there's a process where you can go through, have you Example. The charges were dropped against you. You're found not guilty at some point or the charges are dismissed, and they will agree to take the website down or take your photo down in Hillsborough County and other counties around the state. There has been more of an initiative to limit the amount of time that the booking photos stay up online. And so that was one initiative started by the local sheriffs. Themselves recognizing this could be a problem down the line. But now this new bill, what they want to do is block any acts, public access to booking photos online through a jail website or the release to the media and less. It's a situation where the person poses an extreme danger to the public at that moment. There'll be a public record succession for that, but otherwise you would not see booking photos online anywhere under this new bill that passes what is the reasoning for that approach to take it to that extreme? I think what they wanted you and this is something I've heard in legal circles throughout the years is that if the booking photos up there, for example, say you get arrested for driving on a suspended license. You get charged with a felony you then later go pay off all your tickets. The case gets dismissed or gets changed to a different charge. And then you go apply for a job and someone decides to look you up online. They say, Well, you got arrested for a felony. You know, they made me a pass you over, even though you can prove that you weren't convicted of it. So before even waiting for your job interview, for example, you would not even probably get an interview because they would see that your picture was online. And in cases where you know you got arrested, they say is stupid. 18 year old forward, you know, drinking out of the bar something and solo and then you end up trying to go to law school. They can look at that, too, even though he had to provide proof of what happened your case, But anyone can go online and draw a different conclusion of just by your booking photo without knowing all the facts of your case, so really the long lasting implications of that image. Yeah, definitely. And of course, it effects. You know my minorities more than it does you know white people Because the you know, disproportion amount of crime The people get arrested for so there's an inherent Bias is what the legislator Randolph Senator Randolph Bracy of Orlando is saying that that it creates an extra impediment to people that maybe got arrested on Lee once or twice and then their information stays up there. The nature of the charge is another good example. Domestic violence arrest so a lot of times. If someone gets arrested for domestic violence, they're accused of it. But then the charges were later dropped. But that booking photo will stay up there on their website, and then it gets reported out. I worked in television. I know exactly how this works. You get a crime. You get a booking photo attached to it. You put that person's buckshot and you know, on the morning news without even really knowing what's going to have it end up happening with the case. Yeah, There's definitely a presumption of guilt. Almost when you see that photo. It's certainly has an impact because I was thinking well, maybe for certain crimes like the more violent crimes and things like that. But again, it goes back to what I just said. It makes a person look guilty. And if they're found innocents of the crimes, those photos stay out there and could haunt him the rest of their lives. Nothing goes away on the Internet these days. Right. And so, for example, say that you know your radio personality. People know who you are. If you ended up getting arrested for something, and then your photo gets out there really go Look. Ryan government by heart media. Got arrested for whatever crime and then if you say you end up getting, you know, terminated from you, our company and you go apply for a job in another company. They're going to go and look at that, and go immediately See that? That's the first thing that these companies Actually media companies, they it's an easy way for them to see if you've been arrested. Do you have something dark in your past that you may not disclose or you may try and hide from employer So it cuts both ways, But Morris kind of protect people that get in that situation where they end up. Not getting convicted of a crime. They get cleared. But then the stigma is still out there on the Internet. Is this a bipartisan push? Who is filing this bill and looking to move this bill through the Legislature in the session? This is a while by again state Senator Randolph Bracy. He's a Democrat out of Orlando. And so he pointed to what I was talking about the the the effect that it has on the individuals moving forward in their lives. If they made a mistake, and therefore eventually the charges got dropped or the case was resolved in a favorable way. That's what he is looking at the long term effect. This has and he cites just, you know, several examples of individuals that have had these scenarios play out. We're a disproportionately affects African American and Hispanic people find themselves involved in the criminal justice system. Wonder, though, Is there anything in the bill to where once the let's say trial has happened or his deal is reached, and the person ized found guilty or please guilty? Then the photo can be released. Is there something in there? Because that that would make sense to me. This basically puts a ban on it from the outside that no photos would get released. Unless, like I said, if you're, for example, the seven all heights murder suspect if they had identified him. And I didn't know they had an identity. They had a prior booking photo when they were still looking for him after you'd already killed four people. There will be an exemption for that type of scenario. If it's just a run of the mill arrest, whether it's murder, or, you know,.
