ON THE ROAD WITH THE EVERHARTS JULY 29. 2013


ON THE ROAD WITH THE EVERHARTS
     I could say it was a race against time, but it wasn't.  Sheila leisurely drove us to Omaha for a 2pm appointment at the Vets Hospital for an Echo.  Fortunately my heart was palpitating when I took the echo, because sometimes it doesn't, so this time they got a good look at my heart, not only heard the missing beats, but got to see them as well, but nobody got excited.  Well, just about nobody, a few days later when Cheryl Juhl was at the Plymouth County Fair in LeMars, somebody there told her I was dead.  So, she called, and of course I answered the phone, for which she was very grateful.  Everything seems to be all right from the Vets Hospital too, for I haven't heard anything back from them about the Echo.  Lunch that day, was at the Gyro Restaurant very near the hospital, and of course by drinking water instead of pop, we came out with a nice budget lunch.  Bobbie probably won't say anything about it, because she loves the lamb in the gyro sandwiches there.  We got to make the trip double-fold with a stop at Whole Foods, Sheila's favorite grocery.  We don't buy a lot of stuff there, but some things just can't be beaten, like fresh fruits and vegetables, so we stocked up on that.  They always have new things at Whole Foods, and this time it was baked cheese.  No, I never heard of it either, but it sure disappeared rapidly once it got to our own refrigerator.  We also got a loaf of freshly baked bread at Whole Foods too, this time a Tuscan Rustic. mmmmgood. 
     We had a nice visit from the Red Hats from Exira, Iowa.  Eleven lovely elder ladies came for a tour of the Pioneer Music Museum.  I had a nice time showing them around and telling them the stories of some of the exhibits.  The story about Spade Cooley is always a thriller.  Come and see the museum sometime and I'll tell it to you.  The ladies enjoyed the Leadbelly story and how he came to write "Irene Goodnight Irene," and they also liked the story about how Bill Monroe and his brother Charley came to Shenandoah, Iowa, for their first paying music gig in 1934.  It always amazes bluegrassers when I tell them Bill married a girl from Clarinda, Iowa.
     We're getting all geared up for the Terry Smith tour.  He's in Bloomfield, Iowa, at the Iowa Theater, on August 1 at 7pm, and then at the Oak Tree in Anita Aug. 2 & 3.  The Aug. 2nd show is sold out, but there are still seats available for the Aug 3 show.  It's matinee time Aug. 4th at the Rec Center Theater in Carroll at 2pm, and then an evening show at the Baptist Church in Wall Lake at 7pm, so we're going to be very busy for a few days.  We're also very busy getting ready for the LeMars old-time country festival Aug. 26 through Sept. 1.  Just got word that Barbara Fairchild (Teddy Bear) will be with us too.  It's going to be fun, so make plans early.  Bring a camper, that's when it's the most fun.

LADY ANTEBELLUM ANNOUNCES THE FIRST LEG OF THE  
TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR 2013 SET TO LAUNCH IN NOVEMBER

Friends Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves Join The 40-Plus City North American Trek

 
Nashville, TN – July 29, 2013 – Seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum has announced the first leg of their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR 2013. The group has invited Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves to join the arena tour kicking off Nov. 8 in Southaven, MS and running through December. Fans can purchase tickets and special VIP experiences beginning Sept. 13. Visit www.ladyantebellum.com for the most updated on-sale information and www.cidentertainment.com/ladyantebellum for VIP opportunities.

“We spent almost every day last year backstage writing for our album GOLDEN, so we were really focused on writing songs that would connect with the fans in these arenas.  We definitely learned a lot about ourselves as live performers and the type of catalog we wanted to have so that we could go out and try to give the fans the best show they've ever experienced," explains Lady A's Charles Kelley.  "All of that was the jumping off point for this tour, and now it's time to take it to the next level."

Last year, Lady A hosted over one million fans across the globe in 11 countries on their first headlining world tour, which earned them Billboard Touring’s “Breakthrough Award,” CMA’s “International Artists Achievement Award” and will accept the “Jim Reeves International Award” at this fall’s ACM Honors. The shows were inspirational and critics praised the band’s “youthful exuberance and unending energy.”

The harmony-based trio Lady Antebellum continues to reaffirm the very beginnings of Lady Antebellum by focusing on deft songwriting and fresh uses of their talents, which was at the heart of what drew them together in the first place. Since its 2006 inception, Lady A has won the “Vocal Group of the Year” honor from both the CMA and from the ACM’s three times in a row and sold over 11 million albums worldwide. The trio has taken seven trips to No. one on the country radio charts, earned five Platinum singles including their recent “Downtown” and has been awarded with seven GRAMMY awards including the all-genre “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year.” In the end, the mix of their road experiences, songwriting and creative partnership have allowed the magic to remain - because they have kept the focus on the music.

Platinum-selling artist Kip Moore’s current No. one hit “Hey Pretty Girl” is the third consecutive chart-topper off his debut album UP ALL NIGHT, which was the best selling debut album from any country artist released last year. His first No. one single, “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” held the top spot on both charts for two weeks making him the first solo artist in four years to have a debut album’s first single go No. one for multiple weeks. Moore has already sold out dozens of headlining shows this year, often in just minutes and recently played his first stadium show as part of CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.

Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Kacey Musgraves released her debut album Same Trailer Different Park this past spring to massive critical acclaim and recognition.  The album debuted at No. one on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart making her the first solo female in five years to open at No. one with a rookie release. She’s received ACM, CMT and Teen Choice Award nominations and her Top 10 single "Merry Go 'Round" was recently certified Gold and follow up single "Blowin' Smoke" is currently climbing the charts.
