Gary Lynn Floyd’s “Troubadour, TX” airs Sunday

Last November, we reported how local singer Gary Lynn Floyd was one of two dozen Texas-based musicians tapped to appear on a new reality series, Troubadour, TX, which follows them on their quest to make music. At the time, Floyd didn’t know if his segment would be one of the last of the fall season, or early in the spring season.

Turns out the latter.

Floyd’s segment of the series, which airs locally in Channel 21, will finally debut this Sunday at 10 p.m. As Floyd says, go ahead and watch the Grammys … just be sure to switch over to KTXA at 10 to see him.

Not a problem.

What do you think of the new Bill White ad questioning Rick Perry’s manhood?

Perry Coward Ad

The above advertisement appeared Tuesday in nearly two dozen Texas newspapers, according to The Dallas Morning News. The ad, paid for by the Back to Basics PAC, labels Republican Gov. Rick Perry a “coward” for refusing to debate Democratic challenger Bill White or interview with newspaper editorial boards. The ad goes on to urge people to, “Tell Rick Perry to stop cowering and face Texans like a man.”

White is trailing Perry by 8 points in the latest polls, and some are suggesting that this machismo contest won’t be enough to make up the deficit. What are your thoughts?
