Ouch. The alt-country veteran doesn't rip Adams on 1997's South Mouth, but sounds off about the frustrations of trying to make a living as a Nashville songwriter ("F—k This Town") and explores the real key to a woman's heart...

Last summer it turned out "Nemo," not Neo, would be the star of the blockbuster season with a fish tale that had more heart than any of its human competitors. After an early separation in the film, "Nemo" follows two divergent...
