Hi Folks: I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July and that you’re ready to put ye olde noses back to ye olde grindstones! It rained in Nashville over the holiday, so I didn’t try to get my boat out on the lake like I had hoped to do. Just hung around […]

We spent all weekend promoting it, including a Sunday night show at a jam-packed Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

1) I have always wondered in your song, “Think I’ll Go Somewhere & Cry Myself To Sleep,” is the person dying or are they just never coming back? One of the great things about music is that the listener can take a song and put it into whatever compartment in their life it might fit the […]
