'Tis the season!

We'll be celebrating Christmas ten days early this year as Bob will be back out on the boat by the time Santa comes. So crummy as I felt with this stupid head cold last night I needed to get the shopping done. I'm normally done by now but it's just been a crazy year.

Anyway... while digging through the $5 CD bin looking for a RUSH cd for Bob's Christmas stocking I came across Brewed in Texas Vol. 2.  WOW!  The banner on the label says 'More Fine Hand-Crafted Texas Music'. The CD consists of 20 Tracks of some of the best music out of Texas. Total Drinking Time: 73:07. Yep, that's what it says on the back of the label.

First off, I don't see a lot of Texas music CD's in southern MO, though every once in awhile I come across one or two. So I was quite thrilled to see some of the people I promote on a weekly basis on The Party List.
Randy Rogers Band sets the tone with a Gary Stewart cover tune - 'She's Actin' Single'.  From there we are treated to people like Charlie Robison, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Kevin Fowler, The Lost Trailers, Gary P. Nunn, Flaco Jimenez, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Billy Joe Shaver and my all-time favorite Texas band, Asleep At the Wheel to name a few. My favorite is a duet of Roger Creager and Radney Foster.

Speaking of Radney Foster, I happen to know he's working on  a new album. He spent time in the studio last week with the best bass player in Nashville, Jimmy Carter.

So don't discount a few minutes to dig through those $5 bins at your local discount store. You never know what gem may be buried there!

Country Blessings!
