Musical Dems: Where are they now?

What ever happened to the Music Row Democrats? The link to their blog now goes to a site with entries in French. This article from the November 21, 2007 Telegraph says that there will be (or was to be) a tour during the 2008 campaign. There are a few news stories about the group from 2008, but the references are mostly in passing like this one about Republican Trace Adkins's manager Ken Levitan who is a member of MRD. It looks as if their plans have changed. They were sent a Federal Election Commission letter of "Termination Approval" dated Feb. 29 of this year that leaves the door open to future fundraising and campaign activity.

Speaking of musical Democrats, when will we start to hear more talk of Tim McGraw for Governor? Back in 2006, McGraw said, "Maybe in 10 or 15 years when the music has died down." But at the beginning of 2008, the talk was that he would consider running in 2010.
