Kris Allen visiting Star 94 and AT&T store in Alpharetta Thursday

kris-allen61

Kris Allen is making man in-store appearance at the AT&T store near North Point Mall in Alpharetta Thursday from4 to 5 p.m. The first 200 fans get to meet him.

I’m in D.C. so I’m missing out on the festivities (but he’ll be back in town to open for Maroon 5 next month.).

He’ll be doing a small in-person concert for Star 94 fans later that evening as well. (You need to win tickets to see that.)

The store is at 7900 North Point Parkway in Alpharetta.

MJ posted a flood of Carrie Underwood photos from the Nashville flood benefit last night.

David Archuleta will sing the National Anthem at the Washington D.C. Fourth of July concert airing on PBS. Nope, I’m here a little too early for that!

No ‘Idol” concerts in D.C. while I’m here though I could see Carole King/James Taylor, Pitbull, Sister Hazel, Ted Nugent, En Vogue, Phish, Bill Engvall or Natalie Cole. (Adam Lambert comes to Baltimore Sunday but I’ll be back in Atlanta.)

Hey Rodney – you made it into the Vent today!
I didn’t get Adam tickets – I am so sad….
Hmm, not gonna visit AT&T today….
Carrie is just too cute for words!

Good mornin’ y’all,

If I didn’t have to work, I might have thought about going to see Kris. Eh, just kidding.

Carrie is just adorable. I wanna put her in my back pocket…or like the great Paula Abdul once said, “dangle her from my rearview mirror.”

Hmm, quite the selection you’ve got there Rodney. The only Idol connection I’m making is En Vogue sang with Kelly on the Lifetime Women Rock special…and the Idol girls did Free Your Mind on the tour. How’s that? :)

MJ has a “flood” of photos… and all we get is one drop??

Oh the humanity! :-)

From the choices Rodney has… I’d choose either Carole King/James Taylor (saw the PBS concert) or Uncle Ted!

And I guess Rodney’s getting out of town just in time!

By the time Rodney posted this thread, I was on the previous posting my good morning and daily quote.

Carrie is cute as a button! K&CF correct me if I’m wrong, but I heard that Carrie is planning her wedding for July. Can you confirm?

So how about Archie getting on the New York Times non-fiction bestseller list – he’s at No. 15, with his co-written autobiography (oxymoron, eh?).

Good morning everyone! Hope I have more time to participate today. I finally broke down and bought a new Ipod Nano and am enjoying playing with it.

I’m trying to move the perspective of that picture a little to the left, but can’t. Can anyone help me with that?

Man in store.

Thanks Rodney, enjoy DC.

Carrie Underwood- so yummy. Thanks, Rodney.

JT- just stop it, man. Carrie is our good, wholesome, girl-next-door.
We must not think that way about her. (yeah, right!)

kelly&carriefan wants to put CU in her “back pocket”; yeah, whatever.

Wednesday movie opening – “Knight and Day”, which basically is a carbon copy of “Killers”. Make that cartoon copy, since Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are spoofing all the “secret agent” comedies out there. Cruise, like Ashton Kutcher before him, plays a professional killer, who still, somehow, is a good guy, and Diaz is the kind of heroine Hollywood believes their mass market target (14-year old boys) adores: a girlie woman who has a good set of lungs so she can shriek, often, at silly things; who is, of course, blond, so she’s just a little stupid; and who is in posession of a skinny figure so she’s easy to pick up and be manhandled by the hero.

Still, I laughed and had a good time watching the silly procedures of “Knight and Day”.

WP I assumed that she meant to say front pocket, because that is where I’d place her. And I don’t mean “pocket” when I say that.

It’s too bad Rodney won’t be in town to see and possibly interview Kris. His tour is going very well, his new single is moving up the charts, and he is absolutely fantastic live. So hopefully Rodney will go to see him when he opens for Maroon5 next month.

MJ’s blog also notes that Kellie Pickler has gotten engaged, so congrats to her on that!

Nana, yes, Carrie is getting married in July.

Wreckedpizza, Carrie can put me in HER back pocket if she’d like.

JT, you totally get it… “pocket” ;)

Carrie is getting married in July…UNLESS WE CAN STOP IT! What are our chances, kelly&carriefan???? Do we really want her to become Carrie FISHER??? Don’t think so…

Front pocket, back pocket, whatever as long as it is a “hot pocket”, right folks????? Am I right or am I right?

LOL, wreckedpizza! The wedding is in TN….sometime in July. I’ll be there next week, but our chances don’t look too good. Oh, and the honeymoon is 11 days in Tahiti and/or Bora Bora, from what I’ve heard.

Whatcha gonna pick, Hot Pocket! “The hot meal in a pocket…”

Ha! D, I saw that. The story is a cute one and glad that the date now has a happier meaning for her. There must be something in the water in TN. Wonder if I shall bring bottled? Nah…ha. Oh, and I’m saving the mourning for the day Kelly does. ;)

Great news from MJ’s blog:

Kelly Clarkson records the first song for her new album.

Kelly Clarkson tweets, “Officially recorded the first song for my 5th album today! It’s so awesome and is a duet but I can’t tell you who quite yet ”

This was posted yesterday but I just found it today while perusing the site. Excellent, eh!

wreckedpizza, Yes. The speculation/gossip is that the duet is with Daughtry. From what we recall, they had previously recorded one that did not get put on either’s album. I’d guess the great press/feedback on Fast Car might have helped. They sound awesome together.

D, YES! I might have been sneaking a peek during the game. Holy. Crap. That was definitely a squeaked by win. BUT we’ll take it! :D

Rodney! You are in DC; why didn’t you talk to Obama and keep him from firing Gen. McChrystal??? AP is reporting that the Afghanistan commander is gone due to critical comments about the Prez and top officials.

Popping in for a few seconds to see what is going on. Still have about a million things to do before I leave this evening.

Congrats to Kellie Pickler. May she always be as happy as she is now.

Thanks K&CF for confirming Carrie’s wedding date.

I’m at a Starbucks off Conn. Ave. in DC. Just met up with a former college bud of mine who now works at politifact.com.

There’s enough news going on to give me an excuse to post a new blog entry, especially since it gives me an excuse to post a picture of Kellie Pickler!

Off to see Wolf Blitzer at 4.

do you think if i get there about 7:00 am i can be one of the first 200 because i think Kris Allen is one of the people i can be a fan of for a lifetime.and i think it is pretty sad that just because i voted for him he has to take so much hate from Adam fans did you know that they are trying to get LLWD kicked off of vh1 and i don’t hate Adam i just think that Kris has just as much right to have his one and only video on vh1 as Adam dose his 5…
