These Triple digit temperatures across Texas have me staying and playing in the the shade as much as possible. I'm staying inside and working on new songs for my next CD. A new song written with Steve McGrew, "When I Hear His Song" (a tribute to John Denver) is recorded by John Macy and waiting to be released. "Casa Hera Dura" co-written with Nate Wishnow, and "It Will Come to Your" and "Sweet Harper Rae" co-written with Michael Hearne, will be on the next CD.
I'm half way through 2022 and celebrating 50 years of writing and playing music in Texas. The first half of 2022 has been great! I want to thank all who have been coming out and supporting live music and live music venues. Here are a few shows lid below remaining in July!
