I wouldn't mind NASCAR if they turned right occasionally.

I haven't liked anything out of Nashville since the 70's.

Fred Eaglesmith, Joe Ely, of course the late, great Johnny Cash with whom I got into this business. Lately I've been listening to some Conway Twitty & Buck Owens with their clever writing and immaculate recording quality.

Steve-

One of the "show bands" I worked with had a Patsy Cline.  The show was up tempo and humorous... so that pretty much left Patsy out..

Until one day.... we worked "Crazy" into the show... she got a verse or so and had a "nervous breakdown" on stage, the dancers come out and wrap a straight jacket around her and escort her off stage while the band vamps the next intro...

A couple of segments later, Patsy is brought back, with a voice over apologizing for her prior difficulty and promising that she's much better now Wink  She's doing "I Fall to Pieces."  One of her arms is from a mannequin, her breasts are falsies, the Big Hair is a wig... she comes out in the audience, and starts leaving parts behind... the dancers take her off, again.

Finally, right before the finale, we bring her back out.  The Patsy Cline lovers now hate us, and the rest of the audience is thinking "oh, not again..."  Patsy does a full version of "Walkin After Midnight" and the whole audience, even the Patsy-haters, like it.  She gets her triumphal bow, and we segue into the finale.

The girl that covered Patsy did a tremendous job of getting every inflection, every little nuance, nailed down.  She didn't get a 9 minute 'serious' PC tribute, but she got a spot in the show by being a sport about her character.  You should have seen what the producer's wife did as Marilyn Monroe... Shocked

Have fun, good luck.

Just another failed attempt at humor - not that it'll keep me from trying in the future. :) Every other gig or so I do makes me think I'm deranged - for being in this business - until the next gig where everything clicks and the band is solid. The best FOH mixing talent I hear tends to be from country music BE's. Life is so unfair...

Check out:

No Justice
Wade Bowen
Randy Rogers Band
Kevin Fowler
Pat Green

It's "red dirt", which is pretty much country vocals/songwriting over rock instrumentation/sounds/arrangements. Big fat kick drums. Les Pauls and Marshalls. Cowboy hats.

It's good stuff.

I also saw Gary Allan on tour this year - phenomenal show with excellent sound. He had a guy on guitar that used to play with Steve Earle. One Deluxe Reverb, cranked, with an old Strat and an R7 LP goltop. The dude smoked!

It's "red dirt", ...

Just a few of the reasons I keep it tuned to XM 12.

Hey, what about Ragweed? Nobody likes CCR? I thought they were red dirt. And what about Reckless Kelly, Cory Morrow, Jason Boland...

Of course I'm also "Keen" on "The Road Goes On Forever And The Party never Ends." Plus a little Shaver and Coe.

Heck, even Dierks Bentley is a big improvement over Tim McGraw's whimpering.

 a little Shaver and Coe.




I got to work with Billy Joe Shaver last year as one of Robbie Fulks Secret Country series.  He's as real as country gets.  He's even missing fingers.  Won't see him on CMT any time soon.
