Album Progress

We are all but done with the recording of our first record for the Mountain Home label. We’re more excited about this release than any we’ve done. The album will be firmly focused on our band but we will have a guest or two helping us here and there, mostly label mates. It will be […]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

Greetings from Angus, Scotland, where I’ll be hanging out for another week, before returning for some shows, including Christmas in the Smokies and our live taping of a Song of the Mountains show in Marion, VA. 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 »

Raleigh and Release Recap

I was meaning to write a Raleigh recap days ago, but a few things came up, like a live album release, doing a lot of on-air fill-in work for Kyle Cantrell on Bluegrass Junction, and flying to Scotland. Other than that, it’s been pretty quiet. Raleigh seemed to be a resounding success once again. We […]Read More »

Busy Summer

Well, I know I’ve been a little slow to update this blog. If you take a look at our tour dates page and look at the previous month, you’ll understand why. It’s been a very busy summer. First of all, if you’ve received “for your consideration” emails from various artists, publicists, record labels, etc. In […]Read More »

IBMA Awards Voting

I’m just catching my breath and catching up on the mountain of built up mail, while we have a tiny bit of time off in between tours. I wanted to say a few words about voting in the IBMA, since the first ballot deadline is coming up on June 13th. My Band and I are […]Read More »
