MEMORIAL TRIBUTE - Ronny Spears


RONNY SPEARS

My heart is heavy this morning and tears flow as the Texas music community lays Ronny Spears to rest. My friends in Texas hurt and I can not be there to share in their loss.

Ronny was an amazing man with so much talent. He is now also a heavy reminder that we must cherish each moment. Just hours before his death, Ronny played at Hank's in McKinney. The shock of his death rolled like a wave across the state, impacting those in the North and West Texas area the most as the news crashed over them.

For the first time in my life, I have no words. So I ask each of you to please check out the post by my friends at Saving Country Music. Then I ask you pick up the phone or stop by someone's house today and let them know you are thinking of them. That they matter. In memory of Ronny Spears.

Country Blessings on your journey, Ronny. 

THE PARTY LIST - October 23 - 29

TURNTABLE TUESDAY - Give It All I Got - Matthew Huff




On October 4, 2014  Give It All I Got won the award for Country Album of the Year and A Little Bit of Crown won Country Song of the Year at the International Music and Entertainment Awards (IMEA for short) Matthew also brought home Country Entertainer of the Year! 

On one pass, Cigarette Burnin’, Give It All you Got, Kill A Little Time, Little Man, She’s Perfect For Me and Don’t Forget Your Yesterday offer up a strong visual and sets a traditional mood. Here We Go Again, It’s Alright, and the cover of an Usher tune – ‘U Got It Bad’ offer up a more contemporary sound. A Little Bit of Crown, Drunk Again and Ain’t No Rules Tonight form a bridge between the two worlds. And through every note there is a thread of blues, like an undertow in the river pulling you deeper into the heart and soul of Matthew Huff.

Matthew knows what he wants from his music, the feelings he wants to convey and what he hopes his audience will identify with. He brings this third CD to his listeners with a ‘GIVE IT ALL I GOT’ attitude.

I am giving this CD:

THE PARTY LIST - October 2-8th

I apologize for lack of a Party List this week. An arthritis flare up is preventing me from doing all the typing/ copy/ paste required. If I can get this up between storms on Thursday, I will do my best. If not, Party List will resume next week.

Thank you for understanding!
Country Blessings!
