Big weekend just over with. What an experience sitttin’ in with Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen this last Friday night. My buddy and “sister in spirit” Becky Crutchfield, was my chauffer from Santa Fe, to ABQ’s Popejoy Hall for the show. My other “sister” Mary Alden Allard, joined me from Estancia, NM, so as you see, I was well taken care of. Thanks to Mary for treating Becky and I to breakfast on Sat morning. Y’all are my “rock” these days. It truly was a wonderful weekend, with friends, and grateful for all of you.

A big shout out to my buddies Tom and Nina Rebstock. Tom provided my final run to Alamosa last week to finalize the mix for the new CD, and Nina for her incredible home cooking. So far, meatloaf, Tilapia, green chicken enchiladas, blue corn, I might add, which was shared with Becky, and no tellin’, what next. Nina is a certified neutralist, and dietician. Boy, I’m a lucky man to have such great ladies takin’ care of me these days.

Thanks to all who came to my pre-birthday party at the Dance Station this last Sat. It was a great time for, I hope, all, certainly, me. Special thanks to Yaz and Bob, who sponsored the event, and who also sponsor the The Rifters as well. I thank them for the huge carrot cake, my favorite cake, and to my long time pal Mary Alden Allard, for baking my favorite pie, coconut cream. It was better than ever this year. Hope to live long enough to do it again, for my big 70th, maybe a little closer to the 11th. This was my first birthday celebration and actual birthday without Bonnie, in 47yrs. Your love and support have gotten me through so much the last month. Again thanks to all who have contributed to The Bonnie Hearne Memorial Fund, as well. BIG HELP for sure, and much appreciated.
New CD, Bakersfield/Texas honky-tonk project, getting final tweaks in the next ten days. Being heading for Alamosa, CO on Feb 14th to wrap things up. Very pleased with this project, and you hard-core traditional country music fans, will really enjoy it, I hope.
Big show in Dallas on Mar 3rd, with Shake Russell Trio W/Michael Hearne. These guys do one heckuva show, and Shake will have his new solo cd available. Mine, might be ready as well. Well be at POOR DAVIDS PUB, 1313 S LAMAR. For tickets and info go to: www.poordavidspub.com
Thanks for all your cards, texts, emails, and such regarding Bonnies passing on Dec 26th. She is moving forward and I choose to do the same. Will come on making music and entertaining you folks, as long as I can, and perform at an respectful level. Stay wqell, dont get the flu,and come see me soon. Mostly performing with a trio, and they will be with me at Poor Davids this year with Shake and Michael.

Sat-Bill Hearne’s pre 69th birthday party w/trio, last year of the 60’s, Thrive Dance Station, Solana Shopping Center, W Alameda, Santa Fe, NM. Carrot cake for all, hopefully coconut cream pie for yours truly.
Just back from my good buddy, Jim Rooney’s 80th birthday party in Nashville, TN. A world class line-up of top session players and songwriters gathered at the Station Inn for Jim’s, Rooney’s Irregulars, jam, and fundraiser for the W. O Smith Music School for kids. A great non-profit for youth music education. The following night Fri, his pal Jim Maguire, world class photographer, hosted Jim’s 80th birthday party. It was a honor to be there, my first, but last, for sure. Jim was a major producer of folk and country music, and mover and shaker the late 50’s early 60’s folk scene. Jim produced two albums for Bonnie and I, “Diamonds In The Rough” on Warner Bros (Warner Western) in 1997, and five years later our Celebration Live At La Fonda CD. Needless to say, a very special individual.
Very much looking forward to my pre 60ththis coming Sat, 2/3 at the Dance Station here in Santa Fe on W Alameda, in the Solana Ctr. 7/10PM, with my trio, and hope a few other pickers. Bonnie will be joining me from afar, won’t see her, but she’ll be there for sure. Carrot cake for all, and hopefully a visit from my dear Mary Alden Allard, with my all time favorite pie, coconut cream. We’ll see what happens, long haul for Mary from Estancia. Regardless, we’ll have a great time, a great to dance to us on a huge hardwood dance floor.
Don’t forget our big show in Dallas, Sat Mar 3rd, at Poor David’s Pub, 1313 S Lamar in Dallas with Michael Hearne and his pal and mine, Shake Russell. They do a heck of a show, and Shake will have his new solo CD release on Don Richmond’s, Howlin’ Dog Records. Their duo album, will also be available and several of mine, possibly my new one as well, although it will be a stretch. Cross your fingers. Go to www.poordavidspub.com
Got to run, stay healthy, avoid the flu, whatever you do, and Remember, take care to enjoy today, tomorrow’s is anybody’s guess.
PS: again thanks to all of you who have kindly supported The Bonnie Hearne Memorial Fund. You have certainly helped me make some unexpected challenges, and I’m deeply grateful.

Looking forward to the Marty Stuart concert in a few hours, at the Lensic Theater her in Santa Fe. Marty is a legendary Bluegrass country/Rockabilly artist. His band the Fabulous Superlatives is outstanding. If you have RFD channel on your television package, check out his show on Sat Nights. He is married to Country Music Hall Of Fame artist Connie Smith.
After the La Fiesta Lounge dates, I’m headed to Nashville to attend my dear friend, Jim Rooney’s 80th birthday bash at the Station Inn. Jim is the producer for mine and Bonnie’s Diamonds In The Rough CD, released in 1998 on Warner Western. This is the benchmark Bill & Bonnie CD, featuring our friends, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Tish Hinojosa. Jim also produced the Celebration Live At La Fonda CD, self-released in 2003. Jim is a highly regarded artist and producer in the country/folk, Bluegrass world. A huge to Kent and Candy Black of Black’s BBQ in Lockhart, San Marcos, and Austin, TX, and to Jim, for making this happen for me. He’s a special “cat”, and as we all know, life is short.
Thanks to so many for contributing to the Bonnie Hearne Memorial Fund at Los Alamos National Bank. I promise you the funds will be used wisely and to good ends.
