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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Streaks Every baseball fan worth his or her salt knows about streaks. During the course of a season it seems like virtually every player or team goes on both a good streak and a bad streak– or slumps as they’re called in the sports world– at one point or another. Streaks and slumps are a […]

I’ve been booking a bunch of shows in New Mexico and Colorado for August, and I’ve been enjoying the process quite a bit. Booking is probably my least favorite aspect of the music business. I’ve been trying to find someone to take it over for me– someone that is experienced and hard working– but it […]

Camp Air, TX. Close your eyes. Picture it. The crisp sunshine beating down on the back of your neck. The gently rolling cotton ball clouds. The air so sweet and fresh and life-affirming the place had to, just had to be named after it. Camp Air, TX. They say you should never judge a book […]

San Angelo was about to run out of water. I’m not talking about people not being able to water their lawns– I’m talking about running out of water. The lakes were gone. The reservoirs were all but empty. There was a countdown clock to the days that Angelo was going to run out of water […]

I took a little break. It happens. I didn’t stop writing because I got bored with the activity– I stopped because I couldn’t think of anything to write about. I wrote about the habit of writing at the beginning of this project– how I disagree with the notion that one should write every day. It’s […]

Today is a day for afternoon baseball. It’s a little overcast. It was drizzling outside a second ago. I got in late after a show last night, and was up early with Hank this morning. The Phillies are playing the Marlins. I think I’m going to take the easy way out today– no opining, reminiscing, […]
