Flatts and sharps

I LOVE the line "Rascal Flatts . . . was remarkably off pitch in several spots" ["A Powerful Chord," by Randy Lewis, Monday]. Fact is, when Gary Le Vox hits a note on pitch and can sustain it, it is a cause for celebration. He has 12 notes to choose from, and sometimes he beats the odds.

Meanwhile, George Jones, whom I have always hated, made me, an Avenged Sevenfold fanatic, cry. I had tears in my eyes during "He Stopped Loving Her Today." I was so embarrassed. At Stagecoach, the old guys were great and the new guys [stank].
