It was a full month of March, with only a few days off, and more cities visited than I can recall at once. March 3rd was the release of Asleep at the Wheel’s record “Still the King”. It was really special to have the Quebe Sisters on tour with us, and special guests Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Brad Paisley, Old Crow Medicine Show, Del McCourry, Leon Rausch, and Elizabeth Cook, sat in to sing the tunes they recorded with us. We played venues small and large, with some special appearances on Austin City Limits, The Grand Ole Opry, World Cafe, Sirius Radio, the Woodsongs, and a three day stent in Savannah, Georgia with one of my favorite bands and dear friends, The Hot Club of Cowtown!
Austin’s SXSW happened right in the middle of the month, between tours, and while the town transforms for better and worse, I always love the energy of the city, and the constant sound of music in the air, and its usually one of the first warm weeks! My bud, Graham Wilkinson, invited me to play some own tunes in a showcase he hosted, and it felt so good to play some tunes dear to my heart, some of them my own.
I’m back out again soon, and hope to see you out there somewhere soon!
