Which Alt-Country Act Was Discovered With A Coke-Covered Fingernail Up Its Nostril?

highonyourownsupply.jpgSilly Daily News blind items can you teach much of practical use in your everyday life. For instance, this time we learned all sorts of new, MacGyver-esque uses for fake fingernails. Did you know they were strong enough that you can rock out with them? Or that they can also be used for snorting illegal narcotics with alt-country stars?

Which local singer who was opening for the national tour of a well-known alt-country act lost the fake nail she was using as a guitar pick? When she finally tracked it down, the headlining band was using it to cut up cocaine lines in the back of their tour bus.

Okay, so were thinking about doing a poll, but frankly if the answer isn’t Ryan Adams, we’ll eat a fake nail heaped with blow.

    The Jayhawks?

  4. G3K

    Shooter Jennings?

    That would explain “Halloweenhead.”

    I thought RyRy was all clean and sober?

  8. the rich girls are weeping

    Perhaps someone thought Trail of Dead was an alt-country act?

    Please tell me that the “alt-country act” is Sugarland, and that the “local singer” who uses a fake nail as a guitar pick is Beyonce.

    Chris Gaines?

    Does the act of cutting lines with an acrylic fingernail seem a little akward to anyone else? Were they also shouting “BOY I HOPE NO ONE SEES US DO THIS?”
