[edit] Events
March 6 � Legendary performer George Jones, in the midst of a comeback this year, is seriously injured when he crashed his Lexus into a bridge. It is later revealed that alcohol was a factor in the accident, and he pleaded guilty to drunk driving charges.
Also during the year, Jones releases the album, Cold Hard Truth (to critical acclaim), and releases his semi-autobiographical single, "Choices."
June � Comedian Jeff Foxworthy debuts his syndicated radio countdown show, "The Foxworthy Countdown."
September 4 � Lonestar's monster hit, "Amazed," spends its eighth week at No. 1 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, becoming the first song to do so since Jack Greene's 1966 hit, "There Goes My Everything." In several other trade magazines, including Radio & Records, "Amazed" reigns for nine weeks, which made it the longest-reigning single since 1966's "Almost Persuaded" by David Houston. The song cements Lonestar's status as the top country band for pop-styled ballads, and further fueled the debate as to what is considered "real country." In fact, by year's end, "Amazed" is gaining popularity on CHR and adult contemporary stations (in re-mixed versions, which excised the steel guitar).
As of 2007, only one other song � 2003's "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett � had matched Lonestar's No. 1-reign feat.

[edit] Top hits of the year
Steady Leak, my signature column that has been manhandled, prodded, and inserted into more nubile bodies than the Pope's flaccid carpaccio. It's been over a year since I did one of these Cloverfield monster-sized installments and my ball bag feels the absence. Though I've resumed my Rawheadesque leaking on you with Lists of Dumb and Sage Advice and Leak Letters and Shrinking Pants Bulges there's still a selection of the readership that misses these all-encompassing mega-attacks and for those people I humbly say YOU ARE WELCOME.

The Steady Leak has risen from the ashes like the hamlet of Nagasaki [Note from Nick to Nick: You may have jumped the gun on that one sweetheart but I'm with you through thick and thin]. A lot of this will be like a warm blanket or like a slightly stinky blanket to an Indian who found arriving Colonials "kinda neat palefaces" before coughing and then dying. Some of these segments will feel fresh and new and inviting. Like a panda's fluffy cub or a middle schooler who stumbled onto the set of Valkerie. Some of these will be boring, but go fuck yourself and keep your fucking negative JuJu away from me!

Ahem... this is a ton of stuff for your pitiful one hyperlink click. I think you ought to refresh this page about 1,000 times just so adviews skyrocket and I line my pockets with the cash of people like this guy over here with this ad on the other side of the cell bar over there -------->

We should buy six of that product. Unless it's that shitty movie there --------->

Wasn't a movie ad? Refresh fifteen more times. It'll show right there -------->

Also, did any of this text create a text ad for you to enjoy exponentially? Oh, I hope an ad launched right in front of this text and a trailer is blaring in your face for that television show you want to avoid. Let me help with a paragraph surely to set us up with many more opportunities to rake in some cash with some nice text ads:

Spider-Man went on the Pirates of the Caribbean to look for XBOX games like Grand Theft Auto, Halo, and Singles in your Area but was only able to Sony his Levi Jeans for a minute before his Ford Taurus hit a Volvo, spilling Papa John's Pizza all over his wife's hairy bush<vagina.
