Keith Urban

"When country music superstar Keith Urban announced his latest project -- a charity benefit to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame -- Nashville's music community was quick to sing his praises.

"To have someone of Keith's stature step up and do this today -- and who all he's bringing to play in October -- is overwhelming to us," Vince Gill told reporters at the time

The benefit -- "We're All for the Hall," as it was known -- was advertised as "all tickets just $25."

But even before tickets went on sale to the general public, they showed up on scalping web sites like Ticketmaster's TicketsNow -- listed, in some cases, for hundreds of dollars each.

"When you have a highly desirable product with incredible demand, all kinds of shenanigans go on," said music industry analyst Bob Lefsetz, who writes The Lefsetz Letter blog." [NewsChannel5]

Lefsetz is not an analyst. He rants. He does not check facts. He should be described as a music industry observer. A commenter. The observation he made here is pure genius, however. He must have majored in economics.

Keith Urban is playing at MHOW next week. Also, great thing about this post is that there's a CMA Awards banner on the screen, too. Did BV move to Arkansas?

He was a lawyer. Now he lives off his lady's money and speaking gigs. He must have a great cock.
