    Ryan Adams has written yet another never-ending blog post, revealing a couple key decisions about his current career path. One: he's no longer playing with the Cardinals, Adams' backing band from Cold Roses through Cardinology. And two: he's taking a bit of a break from the road, due to ongoing "inner ear symptoms" that have left him "struggling with some balance and hearing issues."

    "I am excited to step away," Adams said. "I lost more than anyone will ever know (hearing, someone I loved, my sense of dignity, a never ending losing battle with stage fright)."

    While he's staying off the stage at the moment, Adams is already working on another album, tentatively titled Dear Impossible. He's also cranking out a follow-up to his soon-to-be-released Infinity Blues book.
