Craig Morgan - This Ole Boy

Craig Morgan
This Ole Boy
This Ole Boy    4:23 More Trucks Than Cars    3:32
The Whole World Needs a Kitchen      3:31     Country Boys Like Me             3:29
Show Me Your Tattoo 2:52 Love Loves a Long Night 3:27
Being Alive and Livin’   3:19 Fish Weren’t Bitin’            3:10 Better Stories                    3:14
I Didn’t Drink   3:25 Corn Star             3:21 Summer Moon      3:40

For the last few months, I’ve been working in overdrive on the novel I’m currently writing. Figuring that I could kill two birds with one stone, downloading an album to listen to has almost become routine.  Craig Morgan’s album “This Ole Boy” is one of the most recent additions to my repertoire.
            As the title track rolls, so my fingers begin to tap. But this time I notice something a bit different than the previous albums I’ve been accustomed to. This Ole Boy begins like your atypical country song then the rhythm changes up right off the bat but holds the jam. My fingers automatically stop typing as I lean back in the chair and enjoy the springtime sun with the headphones on.
            More Trucks Than Cars is a call home to all the country boys that’ve left for the bright lights of the city. It also is a song to our troops to say, “Please, come home alive.” This is almost the perfect song to review at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend in the U.S. Or, it may just be the perfect song to play with so many troops still in foreign lands.   
            The Whole World Needs a Kitchen is a song that’ll take anyone on a stroll down Memory Lane right to the intersection of Childhood Avenue. Country Boys Like Me is an acoustic piece of poetry that really showcases Craig Morgan’s talent as a writer and a singer. The lyrics on this song are absolutely amazing. There is not much more I can say about it. Just when you thought he had talent this song comes up and simply blows you away.
            Show Me Your Tattoo begins the fiddle, but anybody can relate to someone drunk outta their mind picking some random picture from that book that every parlor has. Love Loves a Long Night demonstrates the range of his voice.
            I really could go on and on. Each and every song on this album has a unique sound. But, Country Boys Like Me just put this album over the top for me. I would highly recommend it. This is one of those singers that’ll go down in the pages of history, shoot he may even write his own chapter for the country music history books.

ON THE ROAD WITH THE EVERHARTS MAY 27. 2013


ON THE ROAD WITH THE EVERHARTS
     "What a strange spring it is here in Iowa this year.  Last year we came back from California and it was like California here.  This year we came back from Florida and it's like being in Alaska."  Bob Everhart of the Smithsonian duo, Bob & Sheila, spent several years in Alaska.  "I was a disc jockey in Juneau," he said.  "It was kind of funny, I had been working on radio in Omaha, and this radio owner in Juneau got hold of me and offered me the managers job at KJNO. I said sure, why not.  The catch was, at least that's what he told me, was that the previous manager had absconded from Juneau, and took all the stations LP's with him, therefore they didn't have any records to play.  I said I'd take the job if I could do country music.  He said fine, I said fine, and I spent two years up there.  I liked it in the summer time, but the winters are gruesome in Juneau.  I lived in a beautiful cabin on the shores of the inlet, could spot whales from my porch, and little black bears raided my garbage can every night.  Eagles nested in the trees above me, so it was a glorious place to be....when it wasn't cold and rainy."
     "I think it's going to be a short damp summer," Sheila added.  "Bobbie Lhea and I have never been to Alaska, but we'd like to go see where Bob worked someday.  In the meantime, we're gearing up for another great show at the Oak Tree in Anita, Iowa.  June Webb, Roy Acuff's vocalist and the opening act for Hank Williams, will be with us.  She is an incredible artist with a very interesting history in country music.  May 31st is the special day, and we're sure looking forward to that.  Bob has been real busy working on the LeMars, Iowa, festival too, and just received word that Joanne Cash, Johnny Cash's younger sister will be with us.  Her husband is Dr. Harry Yates, the founder of Nashville's Cowboy Church, so we can expect a wonderful gospel time when they are with us this year."
     "We've only been out a couple of times this week," Bobbie Lhea added, "so our 'budget lunch' was a take-home to dad.  Mom and I went to Taco-Bell who has a nice steak casadia.  I had a burrito taco and mom had a regular taco. This is pretty good stuff, and way below the max on the budget lunch.  I like it because it also includes a drink."
     "We keep getting this interesting comment at the Oak Tree," Bob added.  "Sheila's hotdogs and polish sausages are the best ever."  "Well, yes, that's true, they are good.  She cooks them on one of the old-timer hot dog cookers that brings them from cool to hot and back to cool again until they are done.  They are good, and the steamed buns make them taste really good.  We'll have some available for June Webb's show on May 31st."

The Johnny Cash Museum Immortalizes the Man in Black

The Johnny Cash Museum Immortalizes the Man in Black for Downtown Nashville
*Grand Opening May 30th*
 
“One piece at a time,” The Johnny Cash Museum (JCM) has culminated into an amazing celebration of The Man in Black. JCM will celebrate its Grand Opening with a day full of prizes and limited time offers to fans and patrons on Thursday, May 30th. Located at 119 Third Avenue South between Demonbreun and Broadway, the museum is en route between the tourist circulated Broadway strip and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Schermerhorn Symphony Center .

Founder, Bill Miller says the museum is the culmination of a lifelong dream. “I became a Johnny Cash fan of at the age of nine in 1969. I collected everything relating to him I could get my hands on. As time went on, I met Johnny many times and we became close friends. Over the years, he and many of his friends and associates contributed to the collection and I scoured the world for important pieces. This museum is our tribute to the greatest man I’ve ever known.” 
 
The JCM will be open every day from 11 AM to 7 PM CST.  General admission is $14 with discounts for students, members of the military, etc. On Grand Opening day, May 30th, hours will be 11 AM to 8 PM and there will be giveaways of CD’s, limited edition Hatch Show Print  posters and other free gifts all day long.
 
"It's indescribable," says Tommy Cash, Johnny’s younger brother. "There's so much to comprehend. I knew all of the memorabilia was somewhere, but to see it all in one building is an awesome experience. I could spend a week in here and probably not see every single thing. It's something that people that come to Nashville from all over the world will want to see."
 
Music Row Magazine writes, “The New Johnny Cash Museum is awesome!”
 
“An extraordinary collection!” writes Peter Cooper of the Tennessean.
 
Many never before seen historical documents, letters, awards, costumes and instruments take the visitor on a three dimensional journey through Johnny Cash’s life with innovative interactions via the Nashville based Griffin Technologies. The museum unites the extensive and acclaimed collection of Bill Miller, longtime friend of Cash’s and founder of the official Johnny Cash website www.JohnnyCash.Com, and pieces from friends, colleagues and family members including his daughters, son and siblings. The collection features the earliest known Johnny Cash letters and documents as well as the handwritten manuscript to the last song ever written by the prolific songwriter, just days before his passing. Visitors also will be given an extensive look into Cash’s non-entertainment related life including his childhood and early adulthood and his service in the United States Air Force.

1890s Day Jamboree Old Time Fiddlers Convention

Fiddlers and dancers kick up their heels at the Ringgold’s 1890s Day Jamboree Old Time Fiddlers Convention

 

Organizers at the 1890s Day Jamboree Old Time Fiddlers Convention welcome over a hundred contestants including fiddlers, guitarists, mandolinists, bands and cloggers from states across the south to Ringgold, Ga. on May 25, 2013.

Fiddlers and dancers struck a chord with audiences as they cheered dozens of musicians on to victory to win nearly $7,000 in prize money sponsored by Walter Jackson Chevrolet on the Northwest Georgia Bank stage at the historic Catoosa County Courthouse.

“We grow more and more every year with even a greater number of youth contestants wanting to advance on their instruments,” said contest organizer Lewis Taylor.  “Our volunteers work tirelessly to make this event something everyone can enjoy. Without them, our high caliber judges, and our sponsors, we would not do this successful an event.”

Taylor is a champion harmonica player winning titles in several states and numerous contests.
Maddie Denton of Murfreesboro, Tenn. won the Randall Franks Trophy at the 1890s Day Jamboree. Denton also won the 16-21 age category for the chance to compete for the trophy.
In the fiddle off, she faced Aerin DeJarnette of Birmingham, Ala. from 22-50 age category, who placed second, and her mother Marcia Denton of Murfreesboro, Tenn. winner of the 51 and up category, who placed third.

The top prize is named in honor of Appalachian Ambassador of the Fiddle Randall Franks, “Officer Randy Goode” from TV’s “In the Heat of the Night.” He cheered the top three competitors on in their bid to win the Randall Franks Trophy and the $500 prize. He presented the winners on the main stage with Taylor and emcee Kevin Mudd.

Once holding the title of Georgia State Bluegrass Champion, the International Bluegrass Music Museum Bluegrass Legend and Independent Country Music Hall of Fame inductee is a former member of Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys, Jim and Jesse’s Virginia Boys and numerous other groups who as a guest star often shared his talents for the Grand Ole Opry. Franks co-hosts the Grand Master Fiddler Championship in Nashville each year. For more information, visit randallfranks.com.
“I am amazed each year at the tremendous talents of all ages that I see on the stage sharing Appalachian fiddle and dance traditions,” he said. “We are blessed the 1890s Day Jamboree committee feels that its event is an appropriate place to keep the tradition of the fiddle contests thriving and growing each year right on the Catoosa County courthouse lawn.”
Main Stage Fusion won the team dance competition, Main Stage Explosion took second place Main Stage Revolution won third and Main Stage Attraction received fourth. All the groups were from Springfield, Tenn.
In the bluegrass band competition A Step Ahead of Greenbrier, Tenn. won first place with Uncle Dub and the Rank Strangers of Calhoun and Dalton, Ga. taking second, Blue Harvest of Ringgold, Ga. took third, McGill & Company earned fourth and Tennessee Ridge of Tunnel Hill, Ga. received fifth.
Rob Pearcy of Smyrna, Tenn. won both the guitar and mandolin contests. Glenn Craver of Winston Salem, NC earned second in guitar and Frannie DiGiovanni or Greenbrier, Tenn. took third. Jacob Johnson of Lincoln, Ala. And Jonathan Goins of Tunnel Hill, Ga., placed second and third in mandolin, respectively.
The next 1890s Day Jamboree Old Time Fiddlers Convention will be Memorial Day weekend Saturday 2014 in Ringgold, Ga. For more information, visit www.cityofringgold.com, or  www.1890sDay.com or Like the event on Facebook.

DICKEY LEE: Original Greatest Hits - CD
He went from being a ‘60s teen idol to being one of the biggest stars in ’70s country music, but Royden Dickey Lipscomb a.k.a. Dickey Lee has never enjoyed a collection of his original hit RCA ‘70s country sides worthy of the name. But here, at last, is a retrospective that breaks through the flotsam and jetsam of budget packages and re-records that’s currently available: 20 tracks, all but one of ‘em a hit, and the one song that isn’t a hit is Dickey’s own version of “She Thinks I Still Care,” which he wrote and George Jones took to the top of the charts. All beautifully remastered by Vic Anesiini at Battery Studios, with notes by Bill Dahl featuring quotes from Dickey himself—an essential addition to any country collection.
