Is That Your Final Answer?
Lee Ann Womack will tape a "pop superstar" episode of ABC's Who Wants To Be a Millionaire this month. She'll play for her Jacksonville, Texas, elementary school. "If they have any questions about Bob Wills or Willie Nelson, I know I'll knock those right out of the box!" she says. country.com

Trisha's Many Voices
Trisha Yearwood has a little-known talent: She's an expert impressionist. Trisha says she does great imitations of Wynonna, Reba McEntire, Tammy Wynette and Travis Tritt, among others. "I've always kind of been an imitator, 'cause growing up I wanted to be Linda Ronstadt," she says. "The funny thing is I can't do Linda Ronstadt." Launch.com

I would love to hear Trisha do her impression of Wynonna!! It would be even funnier if she did it for Wy. Nobody is quicker with a chuckle or loves to laugh more than Wy. She is my favorite female with Trisha next in line. :) Man I love those two REAL LIVE WOMAN!!

:eek: :eek: Shhhh don't tell everyone how good she is! It's a secret! Don't tell EVERYONE that she is hands down one of the best Blues, Soul, and Gospel singers in any genre! Or plain and simply one of the best vocalists alive! And don't tell anyone that when Wy does get "traditional" few can do it better!:cool: Oh and don't tell anyone that no one in country can ROCK like my Wy? Country Radio has hurt her(I mean literally)over the past few years:mad: :mad: Wy is so passionate and loyal and has been loyal to them for almost 20 years. She's never crossed over though she could have without even really changing her style like most. Well I could go on and on about Wy so I'll stop here!! But it's nice to know my fellow Wy and Garth Fans! "NO ONE ELSE ON EARTH" says it all!;)
