News & Such…

Here’s some good news… I’m returning to NORWAY and ENGLAND in OCTOBER! I’ve put together a pkg of my 3 critically acclaimed CDs: Byrd’s Auto Parts / Down at the Well of Wishes / Route 41 to help celebrate… AND help me get there! That’s right, “Jackknife,” “Alabama Asphalt,” “Would You Like to Dance” and all their musical compatriots in one musical basket. 
ALL THREE CDS FOR $35 plus shipping.

Here are some of the early tour dates:
Oct 15-20… 5 dates in NORWAY incl. Haugasend house concert, Oslo festival shows, and clubs in Oslo and Trondheim

Oct 22-31… 7 dates in ENGLAND incl. house concerts in Pangbourne and Tansley, a pub in Wakefield, and shows in London and Liverpool, and an appearance on Bob Harris’ radio show in Oxford! LOTS more details coming soon.
 I had the great good fortune to be a part of a film class at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film​ here in Nashville that took one of my songs from ROUTE 41 and turned it into a music video. My first ever! I can’t say enough about the commitment, focus, and talent of all the students involved, especially Director Roxanne Nawrot. Thank you Prof. Ron Coons​ for making this happen. It deserves a build up and “premiere” but I think I’m gonna just lay it on ya. Perfect timing to present a new video since it looks like I’m headed back across the Pond in October!
