There's something special about the vulnerability of Tony Stark. He's crass, narcissistic and a million other things, but still susceptible to all of the same things that may bring down you or I. That's what makes this character so believable. He isn't perfect, no matter how many times he tells you he is. Iron Man 3 digs deeper into the brain of Tony Stark and gives you a better look at what gets to him.
I think the story of Iron Man 3 might be a little thinner than the previous two, but it's just as, if not more, entertaining. The special effects are incredible. It's amazing how technology has advanced in just the few years between the first and third films. Where the film lacks in story, it makes up for it in action and explosions. I'd say Iron Man 3 is the most action packed of the bunch.
Robert Downey Jr. has created a character that will go down in history as one of the most iconic characters in Hollywood history. Another classic actor, Ben Kingsley, joins the cast as the Mandarin. Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall round out another star studded cast. This is a very solid film and worthy of your money. Don't waste your money on going to see it in 3D, though. It's not worth it. And make sure you stay through the credits. As with all Marvel films, there's a little clip at the end for you.
It's Willie Nelson's birthday! Happy 80th birthday to one of my favorite country singers. To celebrate, I've decided to throw in a couple of my personal favorite Willie tunes. I know they're not new, but I think Willie deserves a little love this week.

1) Willie Nelson - Always On My Mind

Some people may say that they're getting a little sick of all the comic book character movie sequels. I say, keep them coming. I just came across the trailer for the upcoming Thor: The Dark World. Looks pretty awesome.
First of all, I'm sorry for not getting a show together for you last week. Between the things happening in my hometown of Boston, and just life in general, I never had time to do one. It's a blessing in disguise, though. Because I didn't have a show last week, I have plenty of songs to choose from this week. I think I pulled together a decent one for you. I'm particularly fond of my discovery of the Old 97's and Waylon Jennings song. That put a smile on my face. I hope it does the same for you.
1) Lady Antebellum - Goodbye Town
2) Locash Cowboys - Chase A Little Love
3) Morgan Frazier - Yellow Brick Road
4) A Rocket To The Moon - I Do
5) Chuck Wicks - Salt Life
6) Old 97's and Waylon Jennings - The Other Shoe
7) Carrie Underwood - See You Again
8) James Wesley - Thank A Farmer
9) Randy Rogers Band - Fuzzy
10) Joe Diffe, Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin - All In The Same Boat

I'm so proud to have had the opportunity to sit down and chat with local singer, Ashley Forrest. It's always a good feeling when one of our Baltimore family "make it big." Ashley just released her debut album titled "Seven Hundred Miles." She joined me for our weekly local music show, Charm City Country. Just in case you missed it, here's the interview.
We're proud of you Ashley!
She'll be holding an album release party on May 19th at Rams Head in Annapolis. For more details, CLICK HERE.
