Caitlin & Will – Dead Horse!

Caitlin and Will’s 1st album, Dark Horse, should have been released by now.  If you don’t remember them, Caitlin and Will were the winners of last year’s “Can You Duet”.  The prize for winning was a record contract with Columbia Nashville, but it seems that lackluster sales and ratings have killed the album.

Can You Duet?

Last year, in the first season of Can You Duet, 3 duos emerged with major label contracts and a shot at stardom.  The winners, Caitlin & Will, just released a video for a great song written by Caitlin about the death of her aunt from breast cancer.  This song, Address in the Stars, is already a big hit with fans and should quickly move up the Country video charts.  Because of the fan comments this video was receiving, Caitlin started a web site where people post memories of their lost loved ones.

American Idol certainly isn’t what it once was.  Season 5 reinvigorated my love of music and I began to use the web to search out new music and new artists.  But then came Season 6, Season 7, and now Season 8.  How uninspiring AI has become.  Adding a 4th judge was one of the dumber things Idol has done.  I understand Idol was never just about the music, but the last few seasons Idol has been about everything but the music.   Continue reading
