Blind Item #9 - Kindness

This always in my mind A list entertainer(singer) but more like a B lister usually finds himself played on country radio stations, but he doesn't really fit anywhere. Linked with lots of famous actresses, this singer left a tip of $5K last week so his waitress would be able to buy a car to replace the one that broke down and had her walking several miles to work each day and her neighbors picking up her kids from school.

Must be Willie Nelson based on those words.

Ari said...

John Mayer will always be my secret crush

rajahcat said...

that really is kind whoever it is

TalksTooMuch said...

Johnny Reid!

StewMcG said...

I agree with the Willie Nelson guest ("always in my mind" sounds a lot like "always on my mind")

Lady Heisenberg said...

Shooter Jennings? This be tough

Lady Heisenberg said...

Or Adam Duritz?

Dena said...

Lyle Lovett, although the only actress I know he dated was Julia Roberts and they were married.

Sass71 said...

Adam Duritz

Freya said...

Lyle Lovett? lol
He was with Julia Roberts.

Amartel said...

Obviously ("always on my mind")Willie Nelson. Such a sweetie.

Stephie said...

Willie was my first thought too but he doesn't fit the clues. It says "he doesn't really fit anywhere" but Willie is strictly country. He also has been married for years and hasn't been linked with famous actresses.

sandybrook said...

If he didn't use those words I had been thinking Garth Brooks who is played on country stations but was really more rock than country.

Amartel said...

Why is he "more like a B lister?"

jane3113 said...

Chris Isaak? I'm not sure how to place his music because I only know his one big song.

Freya said...

Chris Gaines says hello.

Lady Heisenberg said...

I can see Willie Nelson for this, but has he dated a lot if famous actresses?
Willie is a regular around Paia, Maui and is verrrry loved at his local haunts there

TalksTooMuch said...

That's who it was, Freya! I couldn't remember

sandybrook said...

Willie did some acting that's about it.

Renoblondee said...

I thought Lyle, but love the Mayer guess.

Karen said...

Willie Nelson is permanent A list.

AbbeyBruce said...

Kid Rock?

Zach said...

Yeah, Chris Isaak. He has dabbled in country and is arguably A list at one point, and arguably not anymore. Willie Nelson is a freaking legend of country music, and he's also at death's door, isn't he? Not out at restaurants. Not someone who dated a lot of actresses.

Tricia Shaw said...

Lovett dated Kelly Cunningham an actress and producer till Roberts.,he also banged Biel, not sure if it was preclude
Preluded by a date

Riven said...

Is this my favorite Tom Waits? I don't think he gets any radio play though.

Zach said...

Chris Isaak has dated lots of actresses including Winona!

Whoops missed the linked with actresses part. I think he's a family man. He's amazing regardless.

AndrewBW said...

Besides not having dated a lot of famous actresses, Willie Nelson is permanent A++ list and no one can doubt that, so I don't think it's him. Don't like John Mayer but that's who I'd guess. Good for him.

Renoblondee said...

On the Kid Rock train. He'd totally do that!

Tricia Shaw said...

Ben Harper

Renoblondee said...

On the Kid Rock train. He'd totally do that!

Lurker Girl said...

Darius Rucker?

Tricia Shaw said...

Or Lenny kravitz, to be different

Lurker Girl said...

but I could get on the Kid train

jane3113 said...

I like the Lyle Lovett guess but he is a country music artist. There's no question.

I'm going all in on my Chris Isaac guess but will not be shocked when this is revealed in two days and I'm wrong

Tricia Shaw said...

I thought Darius, no famous ex'

Kari said...

Kid Rock

Lurker Girl said...

Darius married since 2000. Back on the Kid train permenantly

Bacon Ranch said...

Like the Lyle guess.
Only other I can think of is Dwight Yoakam (dated Sharon Stone).

MISCH said...

Willie dated Amy Irving

nancer said...

i don't consider lyle country. i love him and i don't like country. i think of him as a singer/songwriter that can't be categorized easily. i used to go see him at anderson fair when he was the opening act for other people---waay back.

i like him for this. he's very kind and normal.

Zach said...

@misch really??!? seems like a mismatch

Swanky said...

Willie Nelson

Swanky said...

Willie Nelson

OneEyeCharlie said...

I'm going with Lyle Lovett. Some of his stuff is Country but the majority of his stuff covers the musical spectrum. I think people tag him as Country because of his earlier works and not knowing how else to categorize him. His songs have folk, gospel, and jazz themes as well.

WritergirlinLa said...

I've seen his groupies backstage. Can't believe anyone would shag that but they do!! Regularly. They follow him everywhere. Gawd!!!

Gossip-Monster said...

Just based on Enty's musical taste the Lovett guess make the most sense.

Bacon Ranch said...

Lyle also dated Ashley Judd.
He must like 'em high maintenance.

wahoowifey said...

@ Jane First one that popped in my head..he fits for sure.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Also fits the A to B list bit better.

Lisa said...

Kid Rock his song All Summer Long is a staple on country stations.

nycweboy said...

Yahtzee...

Angela said...

Chris Isaak. And it's his birthday today.

Sherry said...

I'm going with Lyle. And women line up for him because he's a) a musician and b) incredibly charming. LOVE his music and he does a great show. See him with John Hiatt if you can. Another great songwriter.

NOT Willie..He probably has helped out a waitress or two but no actress girlfriends except for maybe Amy.

Trilby said...

Dwight Yoakam (sp.?).

Trilby said...

Cancel my Yoakam guess. Agreeing more with the Kid Rock guesses.

Henriette said...

Chris Isaac

Sillygurl said...

Yes! Hootie right? The black blowfish guy. That's his real name right? I'm with you.

Robbie Pave' said...

I want this to be Dwight Yoakam, because I am a big fan of his. Also he dated Bridget. Fonda, Karen Duffy and Sharon Stone.
Lyle Lovettt is a country artist, comes from the Texas swing tradition, for all you "I like him but hate country" folks. Congrats, you like GOOD country music!

Danerys Targaryon said...

Not sure but for some reason Micheal Bolton came to mind

trudi said...

Willie Nelson dated Amy Irving. Does that count?
