John Edwards–a.k.a. America’s Supra-Handsomest Presidential Candidate–is getting into the music-distribution business. As the Wall Street Journal‘s Washington Wire blog reports, the dashing former North Carolina senator is sending out an attractively assembled country-music CD in connection with his Restoring Rural America campaign:
According to an email pitch we received this afternoon, anyone who contributes $50 or more gets a copy of the CD “Moneyland,” which “tells the story of the plight of rural America, through a collection of recordings, both old and new, from legendary country and bluegrass recording artists, including: The Del McCoury Band, Merle Haggard, Welch, Marty Stuart, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Hornsby & the Fairfield Four, Mac Wiseman, Patty Loveless, and more.”
What, no Akon? He’s on everything this year. The most interesting name in that line-up is Merle Haggard, who’s already written a song about Hillary Clinton; clearly, he hasn’t made up us mind yet, meaning that we can expect a rainy-night ballad about Joe Biden by mid-June.
