Just a short note, to say hello to all. Most importantly, want to offer our love and support to all the good folks in the greater Houston and upper Texas gulf coast. Unbelievable tragedy, and our positive energy goes out to them.
Of much lesser importance, I did start my new CD project, as yet untitled, which goes back to my classic country roots. Myself, Earl Poole Ball, Don Richmond, and my former bassist, Susan Holmes, spent two great days in Alamosa, CO, at Dons Howlin Dog Studio. Ill release it on Howlin Dog Records, sometime next year. A lot of work left to do, but we got a good start. Bob, Dave, and Zeke will be joining in on this project down the road Terri, Dons wife, will be setting up a crowd funding procedure to pre-order the CD, much as we did with the Hearne Family Album. I let you know when thats in place. We got rhythm tracks for 7 songs, four Buck Owens, one George Jones, a Lefty Frizzell tune, and a Ray Price ballad, as well. More work on this project in October. If you love, real country music, then this CD is for you. No cliché hit covers, very obscure tunes.
Big Barn Dance coming up next week, hope youve made your plans to be with Michael Hearne, and all the great music happening. Bonnie is very much recovered enough, shoulder replacement, to come for Friday and part of Saturday, and hopes to sing a tune during my set with the Bill Hearne Trio. Michael and I, and Hearne family well doing a few tunes from the new Hearne Family Album, which will be available at the Barn Dance event. It also available on-line as well.
Gotta run for now, see you soon, and please stay well and appreciate every day, that comes your way, and as always, thanks for your love and support.
