“Las Cruces Sunset”

Here’s a new song called “Las Cruces Sunset” which will be on my next record coming out (hopefully) in February. The song was intended to be about my bus ride to the west coast way back in 1982 in pursuit of the rock and roll dream. Instead, it took a mind of its own (which songs often do) into the social current and heartbreak territory of immigration. I do make a brief appearance in the song, but as it turns out, there were other dreamers on that bus.


The Shed and Doodle Soup with Mic

Thanks to everyone who came out to all the August shows, including the girls CD release shows! While continuing to work on my next album I’ll be playing a couple shows with Mic and the boys. Saturday the 8th we’ll be doing at twin-bill at The Shed down in Maryville with Blue Mother Tupelo for the Harbours Gate Benefit. Always love playing The Shed!

Then Saturday the 22nd we’ll be playing “Doodle Soup Days” in Mic’s hometown of Bradford, TN. This is a free event that also features music by Resurrection – A Journey Tribute and The Buzz Kings. Y’all make plans to come cheer us on!
