CHARLES BARKLEY BALKS AT COUNTRY LINEUP

Apparently Charles Barkley is no fan of LeAnn Rimes and Big & Rich. Countrynation.com reported that at the NBA All-Star game last Sunday night, featuring LeAnn, Big Kenny and John Rich, the former pro basketball player and current game analyst commented, "I hope whoever put the halftime entertainment together is getting their resume ready. If you're going to go country-then get Shania Twain and Tim McGraw. This is a hip-hop weekend. What do they think this is, a NASCAR race?"
