Summer 2009 Recap
Where does the time go??? When I find out, I'll letcha know! I know
it's been a while since I've left word but I'll tell ya folks.. this
summer was all a blur in a whirlwind for me. In just these past few
months I traveled all over this great land of ours, making new friends
and revisiting old. See if I can test your geography with these summer tour date
locations. CA, NV, VA, KW, DE, AZ, NY, TN, FL, SC, NC... I'm gettin'
tired just lookin back through my date book! At any rate, every and all
states mentioned left me with a warm notion and confidence that I AM
doin' what it is I'm supposed to be doin' here on this big rock. Much
love and thanks goes out to these good people that continue to lift me
up in my music and spirit. Not in any particular order... and they are:
Kathy Hendrix SC, Mary Yarborough NC, Elisabeth Morkaut CA & NY, Laura Edwards NC, Cheif Johnnie Smith CA & DE (USAF), Jeff & Angela Bryant VA, Fred & Angie Moss KW, Hog's Breath Saloon FL, Dover AB DE, Ted & Jo Bolzle NV, The Carter Brothers TN, T-Bones on the Lake SC, Jeff Armbrewster AZ, Antelope Point Marina AZ, Jerry & Becky Mathews NV, Bonnie Rait CA, Taj Mahal CA, Mike Finnigan, CA. Fury Water Sports KW, Charlie Bouwer FL, Sloppy Joes KW, Kenny Fradley KW, Drake Leonard TN, Robert Douglas FL, Randy Morrow KW, Gordy Michael KW, The Alamo KW, Billy Rossini KW... Hmmm... I hope I ain't forgettin' anyone...
Life is Good
I am pleased to announce that our new deal with Tree O Records
in Nashville is in full swing! We have produced and mastered our first
joint effort. "Life is Good" is a solo acoustic recording including
various covers from Taj Mahal, Jerry Reed, David Childers, Rich Mullens
and others. There are also acoustic versions of some of my own
previously electric tracks too. I really think "Life is Good" captures
the essence of my solo acoustic live performance. I hope you will agree!
Euro Tour 2010
I wanted to let all of my friends, fans, promoters, radio, etc. abroad
know that I am planning my annual UK/Euro tour and need your help.
Anyone receiving this letter who would like to help me with arranging
clubs, house concerts, lodging, transport or any other assistance, I
sure would appreciate your reply!
