Sting & co. could learn a thing or two from Patty Loveless.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Loveless to ride Appalachia Santa Train

As a child, Patty Loveless received gifts from the Santa Train that rolled through her native Eastern Kentucky mountains every holiday season.

On Nov. 17, the 50-year-old country singer will return as a guest on the train as it distributes 15 tons of toys and gifts in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee.

This will be the 65th journey for the Santa Train, a holiday project co-sponsored by CSX Transportation, the Kingsport Tennessee Area Chamber of Commerce and the Abingdon, Va.-based Food City Grocers.

Loveless grew up in Pikeville, Ky., where the 110-mile trek begins. She rode the train in 1999 and 2002 and chronicled the trips in a song she wrote and recorded titled, "Santa Train." "Patty's personal connection with Appalachia makes her a perfect on-board guest," said CSX President/CEO Michael J. Ward.

"The Santa Train resonated with Patty, even as a child, and we look forward to providing lasting memories for all those who receive gifts during our 65th year."

Other celebrities who have taken the train include Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Travis Tritt and Rebecca Lynn Howard.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
