The 4th Ever Red River Songwriters’ Festival

Friday, October 17th, 2014

A few years ago I got together with some of my friends to talk about some of our favorite things. Those things, in short, were: songwriting, Red River, The Motherlode Saloon, The Lodge at Red River, Steve Heglund (the owner of the aforementioned Saloon and Lodge), and people. “We should put all of those things […]

The Twelve Project

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Last year my friends Will Wright and Shannon Guillot-Wright asked me if I’d be a part of a project they started a few years ago called The Twelve Project. I told them that I would be honored– I’ve admired their work in years past, and I’ve admired the fact that these two motivated people created […]

We All Need A Little…

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

…Affirmation, baby. Sometimes. It’s true. We all do– in any line of work or walk of life. Sometimes you just need to hear someone tell you “hey– good job.” It’s especially true in my line of work. I take my ideas, thoughts, emotions, and experiences, rhyme a few words and wrap a melody around them, […]

It’s Here!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

It’s here! Introducing my seventh record, Sad Songs Happily Played. Playing live is one of my favorite things to do in the world. It’s impossible to predict how a show will go from night to night– so much of what I do depends on the energy that a crowd brings into a room. Sometimes it’s […]

Sad Songs Happily Played Presale

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Hi there! The release of my new live record Sad Songs Happily Played nears! The official date is Tuesday, September 9th, but you can get a copy before that, of course. The digital stuff will be coming down the pipeline shortly, but I wanted to announce three separate bundles that are now available in the […]

Shows and Live Record News

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

hey everyone! Greetings from sunny Florida! I’m down here for a few days on a family trip, but I was able to sneak away for a few minutes to give you an update on some upcoming shows, as well as where we are with Sad Songs Happily Played. First– the record. Things are coming along as […]

Sad Songs Happily Played

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

I’m happy to announce that on September 9th, 2014 I’ll be releasing my 7th album– Sad Songs Happily Played. It’s a two-disc live recording that I didn’t even know I was making… Everything felt good. It was a Friday night in November. The room, an old post office in League City, Texas, was full. The […]

The Allan Goodman Memorial Fund

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

On May 21st I wrote about my friend Allan Goodman. Of course I wish with all of my heart that I hadn’t written about Allan, because it would mean that he’d still be out there smiling and laughing and hugging people and making music. The point of what I was trying to say in my […]

300//\\365//\\300 (#32)

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

A Half-Day In The Life WAMU’s fabulous program Bluegrass Country, based in Washington DC, recently posted a video of a song that I performed for them live on the air during a visit to their studios back in February. For no particular reason whatsoever, I decided I’d share with you all of the things that […]

300//\\365//\\300 (#31)

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Our AC stopped working while I was on the road over the weekend. Luckily a technician came out and got it back up and running the following morning– and they’ll be replacing some parts for the permanent fix this afternoon– but nonetheless, it happened. Losing your AC at this point in the summer here in […]
