One of my favorite American Idol contestants this year has been Brooke Barrettsmith, and she's been kind enough already to interview with me here, so I wanted to let you guys know what she's up to.

First, I highly recommend you go HERE and listen to her music. Especially "Make Me" which has quickly become one of my favorite songs. The rest are pretty good too, so check them out.

Rightly so I alway knew you took your Musical Ramblings a lot more seriously than I do, and that include you American Idol Review's, and if you haven't paid attention I am slowly (turtle's pace), jumping on the dump Pickler bandwagon. Wow at the sexy photo's these chicks send you, Gee I forgot how lucky you former DJ's had it. Chicks crawling all over you and stuff. Hey great blog as usual.
