Miss Dixie, Laurie, and Viva NashVegas

Sorry about the length of time since the last time I posted to this blog. The Night Drivers and I had a wonderful, and by all traditional measures, a successful European tour last month (no one was arrested or hospitalized). Pictures from the tour are sprinkled around on this page, if pictures can be sprinkled. […]Read More »

Release Week

We’re just coming off a busy and productive week that saw Run Away Tonight hit the street on August 21. The night of the release we played to a sold-out house at The World Famous Station Inn in Nashville. We had a great time and were joined on stage by several talented guests: Ron Block, […]Read More »

Home at Mountain Home

  I’m finally able to post an update, after making it through the Nashville ice/sleet storm of ’15. By the way, when did they start giving winter storms names like “Octavia”? We used to just say “it looks like snow tonight,” and let it go at that. Anyway, it was not my intention to “lead […]Read More »

New single, and "later" Miss Dixie

Greetings from faraway Scotland in the season of the Burns Supper (poet Robert Burn’s birthday is January 25th). First off, dispensing with some current band news, we released a new single from our live album Live at the Old Feed Store (see video above), an original of mine called “Like a Hawk.” It’s a song […]Read More »

Cyber Monday goes international

It turns out that not only has “Black Friday” started to spread around the world (even though no one […]Read More »

Scotland to Arizona

Greetings from Tempe, AZ, a hangout for me back when I was with Weary Hearts. I’m here in advance of our appearance at the 35th annual Wickenburg Bluegrass Festival, a festival I also played as a Weary Hearts member. I arrived a day early to try to get over jet lag; I flew here straight […]Read More »
