Just wanted to catch up, Becky and I just got back from Savannah, Ga yesterday. I had a gig last night in Denmark at the Jim Harrison Gallery for an art show that was linked with the annual Dogwood Festival. In Savannah, we caught the Earls of Leicester. This is an amazing blue grass group that does the music of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. It's highlighted by Jerry Douglas, probably the best lap steel player in the world. Got a chance to talk with them after the show at the Lucas Theater. We were there with our reformed (but not named yet) blue grass group. More on this later, it's Steve Bennett on vocals, banjo, guitar, Mike Myer, vocals, mandolin,guitar, Dwight (Dweezil) Causey, vocals, upright bass and me.
Last week, I started the ball rolling on getting a demo done in Nashville for a new song of mine, A BEAUTIFUL KIND OF CRAZY. Both of my evaluation services really liked it and it's commercial viability, so I'm now at the point of getting demos made, so we'll see what happens. The reason writers get demos made is for song presentation to publishers, artist, record companies, etc. for possible deals.
So we'll see.
NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Assn. International) listed me on their "one to watch" list of writers. I've done that a couple of times before, so that's always cool!!
Ok, got to go,
Take care and THANKS FOR LISTENING!
