Tuesday morning…Valentine Day! 68 degrees here today then 72 tomorrow then back down near 40 by the weekend. YoY o weather here in Music City.
It was a postcard day in Nashville weather wise. Mid 60’s not a cloud in the sky. And it was a lazy day without any “gotta do” scheduled. So Monday was a day of putting new strings on a guitar to make sure it’s good to go on a road trip this Friday to Benton, Arkansas with Freedom Sings to write with our veterans this weekend. Not many of us like the process of changing strings, but all of us enjoy the results once it’s done. And every time I finish the job, then strum the guitar? I wonder why in the world I don’t do it more often.
PRAYERS FOR A BUDDY
I found out yesterday that my dear friend and co-writer Jimmy Fortune will undergo bypass surgery tomorrow. Prayers for sure. Thank goodness we live in a time of advanced medical care and bypass surgery is nowhere near as scary as it once was. With any luck his Doctors will be right and Jimmy will be up and out on the road again making folks happy within 12 weeks. I’ve been blessed to co-write some wonderful songs with Jimmy, but more importantly he’s become a dear friend that I love. Prayers.
GOOD CHART NEWS
Yesterday the Roots Music Chart listed the new Nick Dumas album “Details” at #4 already. That’s the song I wrote with my buddies Tim Stafford and Becky Buller that was Nick’s first single off that album. Awesome. Congrats to Nick and my co-writers. Here’s hoping over the next few weeks that it might slide all the way up to the top. Really do love this song, and if you have yet to hear it…click right here and listen.
VIRUS AND HEALTH NOTES
More than 56,00 COVID tests have been recalled because they were inaccurate.
In Australia a mother was denied a heart transplant because she refused to be vaccinated.
Yet another new scientific study concludes that wearing a mask made “little to no difference” in the spread of COVID.
JUST ANOTHER FUNNY SIGN
Punctuation is everything.
Yep…a LOT of us were glued to the Super Bowl. 113 million watched it on Fox. That’s the most in 6 years. And it’s now the 3rd most watched Super Bowl game in history. I wonder how many replays Chris Stapleton has had singing the National Anthem? A ton I’m betting.
And I’m also sure a ton of folks went online to buy a white suit. Or maybe not.
My Trop Rock "Songwriter of the Year" buddy Eric Erdman is in town from Mobile and we’re writing on Valentine Day. I’m trying to figure out if that means we’re required to write a love song or not.
I’ll share a song of Eric’s that I love “Who Is They” which is a perfect song that tries to figure out “Who” is in the heck is to blame for things when folks say stuff like “Ya know they’re trying to this or that to us”.
And then I’m going to spend a little time with my Valentine forever, my wife Kathy. I was going to stop after my writing appointment and get her a red valentine balloon, but I’m afraid it might get shot down before I get home so maybe not.
Have a great Tuesday!
