On Monday, the official lineup for the 2016 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was “announced” by astronaut Scott Kelly from the International Space Station. Perhaps the aeronautical histrionics were a bid to distract everyone back on Earth from the fact that this year’s lineup is the most mundane, most mainstream-centric and generic pop tart Kellogg’s cereal assemblage of plastic talent ever accrued on this beautiful blue planet.
Houston traditional country artist Josh Ward was involved in a tragic boating accident on Tuesday. Josh was treated and released from Conroe Regional Hospital for a fractured elbow, but multiple other injuries, as well as two fatalities and a missing person are also being reported as part of the multi-boat incident. The accident happened on Lake Conroe, just north of Houston.
