Willie Nelson – Live @ Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom (6. Mai 2010)
Während eines New York Kurztrips mit meiner Frau bot sich die Gelegenheit ein Konzert von Willie Nelson & Family zu besuchen. Dachte ich vor dem Auftritt noch, dass mit ‚Family‘
Willies Backing-Band gemeint war, so wurde ich an diesem Abend eines besseren belehrt.
Willies Backing-Band gemeint war, so wurde ich an diesem Abend eines besseren belehrt.
Als großer Verehrer der klassischen Country-Töne schätze ich Willie schon seit Jahren. Hatte aber bisher noch nicht die Gelegenheit ihn live zu sehen. 3 Stunden vor dem Konzert war bereits eine Schlange von c.a. 200m vor dem Eingang des Manhattan Center die sich stetig verlängerte.
Langsam füllte sich der ehrwürdige, bestuhlte Raum mit einem diversen Publikum wie ich es selten auf einem Konzert erlebt hatte. Altersmäßig wurde hier einen Bandbreite von 16 bis gefühlten 96 Jahren abgedeckt. Die Zusammensetzung des Publikums - ein Traum für jeden Soziologen: Geschäftsleute im Anzug, tätowierte Punker, Soldaten in Uniform, sowie langhaarige Hippies neben den ‚Okies from Muskogee.‘.Eigentlich gar nicht so verwunderlich, denn Willie selbst weiß ja auch mit 77 Jahren nicht wirklich ob er lieber als Cowboy oder Indianer geht.
Nach einer recht durchschnittlichen Vorband, dessen Frontmann offensichtlich ein großer Stevie Ray Vaughan Fan ist, kam dann Willie mit sehr positiv reduzierter, rein akustischer Besetzung von 6 Musikern auf die Bühne.
Whisky River eröffnete die Show. Weiter ging es mit vielen Traditionals und Songs von Ernest Tubb, Louvin Brothers, Hank Williams, Merle Travis, Kris Kistofferson und anderen Country Größen. Also eine ganz hervorragende Live Präsentation der aktuellen, von T Bone Burnett produzierten, CD ‚Country Music‘. Und das zweieinhalb Stunden lang! Inklusive einer hervorragenden Live Version von ‚Drinking Champage‘, meinem Lieblingslied auf besagter CD.
Das diversifizierte Publikum zollte es mit kollektiver Begeisterung, was die wirklich familiäre Atmosphäre wesentlich unterstützte. Vor uns sass eine Mutter, um die 50, mit ihrer vielleicht 17 Jahre alten Tochter und mehreren großen Macy’s Einkaufstüten. Neben meiner Frau sass ein junger Mann der während der ersten Stunde des Konzerts c.a. acht mal aufstand um sich und seiner Freundin Bier zu holen. Die durchgehend geöffnete Bar war genau wie Willies Performance auf das wesentliche reduziert: Whisky, Bier,Wodka und das ganze nochmal mit RedBull. Cola gab‘s natürlich auch. Wurden aber an diesem Abend nicht so gerne getrunken.
Eigentlich ist es ja bei bestuhlten Konzerten in USA nicht opportune aufzustehen. Aber bei verschiedenen Songs hielt es das Publikum nicht mehr auf den Sitzen. Das entwickelte sich dann zu einen Vorgang den man sonst eher aus der Kirche kennt. Wo an bestimmten Stellen gemeinsam aufgestanden und wieder hingesetzt wird. Und das funktionierte bei Willies Familie erstaunlich synchron.
Die Show endete dann mit ‚I Gotta Get Drunk‘. Und ich musste an ein altes Willie-Interview denken wo er gefragt wird: ‚Warum so viele Country Musiker extrem viel Alkohol konsumieren?‘. Willie schaut nur verdutzt und sagt: ‚Sind sie da sicher? Das ist mir noch gar nicht aufgefallen...‘
Er hätte vielleicht während des Konzerts mal kurz auf die Toilette gehen sollen. Abgesehen davon, dass die wirklichen Willie Fans diese benutzten um kontinuierlich Marihuana zu rauchen, musste sich der ein oder andere Besucher doch mal übergeben. So wie der c.a. 1,90 Meter große, und geschätzte 100 Kilo schwerer Mann mittleren Alters, der mit ausgestreckten Armen die Tür eines Toilettenhäuschens weit aufstieß, und dieses großflächig mit dem Inhalt seines Magens beglückte. Das kommt wohl in den besten ‚Familien‘ vor.

Pressetext singmistergrey - michael c. kent
Der internationalste Song der Welt !!
Das klingt recht unbescheiden, ist aber zu schaffen
und zudem ein echter Spaß für jeden.
Auf die Fahne geschrieben hat sich genau das der Singer&Songwriter Michael C. Kent.
Sein brandneues Projekt „singmistergrey“ lädt buchstäblich jeden weltweit ein,
beim Song „Mister Grey“ mit zusingen.
Ziel der Aktion ist es, bei der Veröffentlichung im Herbst 2011 eine Vielzahl von Vocals
aus möglichst viele Ländern zu haben um den Schlussrefrain singen.
Das dies nicht nur den Recording Profis vorbehalten bleibt,
dafür sorgt eine gut organisierte Website auf der sowohl der Song zu hören ist,
als auch so gut wie jede Frage beantwortet wird, wie der „Stimmaustausch“ funktioniert.
Der Song selbst basiert auf einer Geschichte von Oscar Wilde,
„Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray“,( hier noch mit „a“ im „Gray“ ).
Egal wieviel Sünden Mr. Gray begeht,
er selbst wird niemals auch nur eine Falte davon tragen.
Es altert ausschließlich sein Portrait !
Doch im Gegensatz zur viktorianischen Originalstory verlegt Michael C. Kent
die Geschichte in die Gegenwart und kauft seinen „Mister Grey“ bei Ebay.
Entsprechend modern sind dann auch die (Party-)Sünden und die humorvolle
Erkenntnis, dass es sich (wie so oft heutzutage) um „Shareware“ handelt.
Die „Party-ohne-Reue-Garantie“ erlischt leider nach einem Jahr !
Hier setzt auch der interaktive Teil des Songs ein.
Die „gesammelten“ Stimmen, sprichwörtlich aus aller Welt,
verkörpern die ehemaligen Besitzer des „Mister Grey“ und singen :
Hey, Hey Mister Grey – it´s so cool to have you ´round to make my day.
Eine Botschaft, die tief im innern, wohl jeder ab und zu nachvollziehen kann.
Soundtechnisch hochwertig produziert ist „Mister Grey“ ein New Country - Rock Song,
der das Zeug dazu hat das Bindeglied zwischen Uncle Kracker und Garth Brooks zu werden.
Und darauf, wie sich verschiedenste Stimmen aus aller Welt in den Song einfügen
darf man mehr als gespannt sein.
Wer also Lust dazu hat auf der neuen Single von Michael C. Kent dabei zu sein,
braucht eigentlich nicht mehr als einen PC und gute Laune.

Interview with Ricky Skaggs
CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Ricky Skaggs. Ricky, welcome to the show.
RS: Good to be on the show!
CL: Ricky, you are one of the Bluegrass legends in country music, how is it to be a legend?
RS: You get gray hair when you become a legend I guess. I kind of got the Elijah look going on.
CL: You have a lot of stuff going on at the moment, can you tell us a little bit about it?
RS: Yea, I have a new CD called “Mosaic” that’s gospel, spiritual, and sacred CD. It’s very different than anything I’ve ever done, but very good. I’m very proud the way it came out and it sound wonderful. Also, I’m re-releasing a record we did for Cracker Barrel, there are lots of stores and restaurants here in American. They have a big gift shop, where they have lots of records in there. We did a record for them was my “Country Hits Done Bluegrass”. They’ve had it for three years, so we’re adding some old songs done in a new way, a project that will be re-released that this year. Got a Christmas record that we’re putting out, Volume 2 Skaggs Family Record, with The Wyatts and our children. We also have a DVD from that performance from the Ryman Auditorium that’s when coming out Skaggs Family Christmas as well. The Wyatts are doing a record this year for Skaggs Family. I got a book coming out sometime in September, it’s an autobiography with my wife and so we’re pretty excited about that. Outside of the I can’t find anything to do. I’m just bored!
CL: When country music came out huge, also bluegrass music, what’s the biggest difference from the time you started your career and now.
RS: Well, lots of difference now. I think radio is different, we have the Internet now, we didn’t have that back then. I think now we can actually play to the whole world at one time, which is great I think. The CD sales are much less, but the Internet downloads are much greater. So we can make more money not having print out CD, store them, ship them, it all can go over the internet now at one time. It’s been a wonderful thing to have. I think there are a lot of people at country radio today that may not know history of country music and so they kind of know the history from Garth Brooks and forward.

THE ROYS – Lonesome Whistle
Rural Rhythm Records
UPC – 732351108028
Release Date - 22 March, 2011
3.5 STARS Wwwu
1. Coal Minin’ Man 2. That’s What Makes It Love (featuring Ricky Skaggs & The Whites)
3. Nothin’ I Can Do About It Now 4. Right Back At You 5. Give A Ride To The Devil
6. Lonesome Whistle 7. Everything I Ever Wanted 8. My Oh My How Time Flies
9. I Wonder What God’s Thinking 10. Trailblazer 11. High Road
Eleven tracks dripping in wholesome bluegrass goodness
On this their first venture with Rural Rhythm records LONESOME WHISTLE is the third album from brother and sister duo Lee and Elaine Roy. Having seen the path that Dierks Bentley had taken with his bluegrass album Up on the Ridge, The Roys felt the urge to take a similar direction. In interview Elaine says “It feels like were coming home with our music”. On this brand new Americana/ Bluegrass outing, completed in 4 weeks, they wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 11 tracks and both as songwriters and musicians they have come full circle. This wise move has proved a fruitful one as the genre perfectly fits the siblings vocal styles and harmonies.
The duo were born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts and when aged eight and five (Elaine being the elder) were raised by their French-Canadian parents after a move to Coal Bridge, New Brunswick, Canada. A place where as young children there were 3 objectives, dig in the dirt, climb trees or play music – they fell in love with them all! Growing up musical influences came from listening to Arcadian music (Bluegrass with an Irish mix). Their Grandma played fiddle and her brother and sisters sang, played guitar and piano.
On this recording, The Roys are not ashamed to go back to their roots which largely depict a landscape of American lifestyles enduring tough times.
They asked Andy Leftwich to produce the album who in turn enlisted fellow top-notch Kentucky Thunder players Randy Kohrs (Dobro), Cody Kilby (Acoustic Guitar), Justin Moses (Banjo), Mark Fain (Bass) and Steve Brewster (drums). With this high quality solid sound combined with the vocals of Lee and Elaine, either as individuals, or better still in unison, the overall result is both a satisfying and winning formula.
The lead of track ‘Coal Minin’ Man’ was a song that Leftwich insisted on its inclusion. Lee Roy wrote it with his friend Matthew Rogers who comes from the coal mining area of East Pennsylvania, thus bringing the concept to the table. Rather than the subject matter referring to gloom and doom of miners trapped in a hole, in this instance they wanted to paint a much brighter picture and this fun up-tempo number does just that, portraying miners as proud and hard working Americans. It pays tribute and talks of the alarm clock third-generation miner, up before dawn, sometimes not seeing sunlight before returning homebound to his appreciative woman who in turn makes everything OK before facing another day. The song which has an accompanying promotional video is not without humour as Lee sings: ‘Well that boss man he’s always screamin’ / And it echoes through the mine / So that coal man takes out his frustrations / With a stick of good old dynamite’ – Yes this album starts off with a bang, big-time !
Sustained by the power of love the sweet and melodic ‘That’s What Makes It Love’ speaks of the sacrifices of a single mother for her family, a struggling farmer and a devoted elderly husband caring for his life’s companion. Elaine Roys’ vocal in the opening and closing verses brings to mind Lee Ann Womack. As is the case on bluegrass albums they are not without a religious reference as they sing: ‘He was born on Christmas Day A common man, a carpenter by trade / But when they nailed him to that cross’. The vocals on the album were cut in The Roys own studio but Lee may well have thought that all his Christmas gifts had arrived at once on the recording of this one. With the song written in the style of his idol Ricky Skaggs, not only did Ricky make a guest appearance along with their mates The Whites but it was recorded at Skaggs Place Studios - indeed “a pinch-me moment”
The pace quickens as the banjo kicks in on ‘Nothin’ I Can Do About It Now’. Andy Leftwich plays a mean mandolin as love turns cold as steel, as the man kicked off the train hammers frustratingly on its side as he watches his lover jump board for the next town, never to return.
Penned by Elaine Roy the gentle heart breaker ‘Right Back At You’ is beautifully supplemented by the aching dobro. Realising the need to move from a jilted lover for therapeutic purposes the pain is thrown back in spade loads along with the tears and empty promises.
As wrong choices are taken, a youngster learns the hard truths for the long haul on ‘Give A Ride To The Devil’, as wisdom wins over temptation.
The up-tempo title cut ‘Lonesome Whistle’ depicts on a rainy summer night, a woman watching a soldier bound for foreign lands, leave on a train. Only years later for her lover to sadly return on his very last ride with its aching lines: ‘They stood in salute as it carried him home / Draped in the flag comin’ off ole # 9 / The day he took his last ride’ - The cry of the whistle and chugin’ of the train is a constant reminder of the pain.
The beautiful soft ballad ‘Everything I Ever Wanted’ lovingly pays homage to mothers through the eyes of daughters sifting through a shoe box filled with old photographs and the impact those monumental images hold. Whether it be as a beautiful bride, posed at a graduation ceremony or holding a new born with adoption papers.
The fast moving toe-tapper ‘My Oh My How Time Flies’ was written with Texan artist Deryl Dodd. Tremendous interplay is on display as the players trade licks on banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass and percussion in such a masterful manner.
In contrast the mood quickly changes on album standout ‘I Wonder What God’s Thinking’. Delicious harmonies completely draw the listener in on this deeply moving piece. It morally questions but doesn’t answer what God may be thinking as he observes a world where a scared 15 year homeless girl is ignored on the streets, people die for the colour of their skin and the clothes they wear – ‘When the rain falls from heaven is it the tears from his eyes’ ?
‘Trailblazer’ written by Elaine Roy allows her to give a nod to her idol Dolly Parton. Arranged and sung in true Dolly fashion it’s about chasing a dream. Something of a women’s anthem the title came to Roy whilst sitting in traffic one day behind a Trailblazer SUV - Seems like destiny is on the road she’s on.
As we finally drift onto ‘High Road’ one cannot but help admire the song craft here. Written by Pete Sallis and CMA Award winner Tia Sillers, it was brought to The Roys attention at a songwriters round in Nashville. Months later Pete gave them the go ahead to record it. Hopefully songs like this will inspire them to raise the bar still further regarding their own writing skills and then as the song suggests the stretch of dirt may then be paved with gold.
Grab a coffee put this disc in your player and The Roys will provide you with a perfect blend.

WILLIE NELSON’S COUNTRY THROWDOWN TOUR 2011
TO CONCLUDE WITH
WILLIE NELSON'S 4th OF JULY PICNIC & THROWDOWN
AT BILLY BOB’S IN FORT WORTH
Drake White Joins Tour and Country Weekly Signs on as
Nashville, Tenn. – April 27, 2011 – Billy Bob’s Texas and 4Fini announce the return of Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic to Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Stockyards hosted the iconic “Willie's Picnic” in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Willie is currently on the Country Throwdown Tour 2011 which will wrap up with the always-anticipated Willie Nelson’s annual 4th of July Picnic. The long-standing Texas tradition will break new ground as it will be held outside and inside of the famed Billy Bob's Texas. Headliners at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic & Throwdown will perform on the venue's main stage outside with many artists taking the stage indoors for a full complement of multi-talented entertainers.
Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic & Throwdown is designed to provide guests a not-to-be-missed afternoon and evening of exceptional performances by artists from all musical genres, along with some unexpected jam sessions. Country Throwdown tour artists include Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, plus recent tour addition, Drake White, an Alabama native known for his unique brand of freestyle twists on original country songs, ad-libs and audience participation antics. Willie’s Picnic will feature many artists who are traditionally featured on the Willie’s Picnic lineup, including Ray Price, David Allan Coe, Paula Nelson, and more.
This year's unique setup will feature the air-conditioned comfort of Billy Bob's opening to the landscaped beauty of Rodeo Plaza in the Stockyards. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. with the first artist taking the stage at 12 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance, available through www.ticketmaster.com, and tickets through Billy Bob’s box office will go on sale May 2 at 10 a.m. Because of the unique inside/outside nature of this year's event, it will be the first time that “Willie’s Picnic” in Fort Worth will set a ticket and headcount limit, and organizers are expecting a quick sellout.
"Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic is a long-standing tradition, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it. We couldn’t think of a better way to end this tour than by bringing together the legendary picnic talent with the big-name artists performing throughout the Country Throwdown Tour,” said Kevin Lyman of 4Fini. “Billy Bob's in Fort Worth is known as the World's Largest Honky Tonk, so I can’t think of a better place to host this year's finale."
The tour also is known for spotlighting emerging singer-songwriters on the Bluebird Cafe Stage. Adam Hood, Caitlyn Smith, Austin Lucas, Brent Cobb, Dani Flowers, and Erin Enderlin have signed on for this special tour attraction, giving fans the opportunity to hear some of Nashville’s best in the “in-the-round”-style sets made famous at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe. This unique singer-songwriter showcase will be a first for Willie’s Picnic in Fort Worth.
4Fini also announced today that Country Weekly has signed on as an official sponsor of the tour. Country Weekly will produce the official souvenir program, which will be distributed free of charge at all Throwdown dates, provide extensive coverage in Country Weekly and on CountryWeekly.com and will host a sponsor tent on the tour where fans can sign up for a special Throwdown subscription offer and get autographs from Throwdown artists.
"Country Weekly is beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour," says Editor in Chief Lisa Konicki. "Our two organizations are a perfect fit, and we're happy to be joining together to bring great music and news to the core country music fan."
