Big Buck...Glock Christmas...New Baby Names


Thursday December 1, 2022 


Thursday morning the first day of the last month of the danged year! 

It will be a little cooler here today with a high of only 46. Things cooled down after that storm swept through late Tuesday night. We were fortunate and did not catch the worst of it. Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas took the brunt of it with over 35 tornadoes touching down.



I had pretty much of an “off” day yesterday giving me a “no excuses” reminder to go the gym. Been awhile with being on the road and then sick for a bit. I also worked a bit on possible new shows for the calendar. Firming up details on a couple right now and will share once we get those locked in. It’s that time of year in Nashville, when the music business does slow down a bit, tours for acts come to an end as everyone starts to reset for their 2023 tours and music projects.


Also, my wife Kathy took filmed of one of the biggerbucks we’ve seen strolling around in our backyard, and we’ve had a few. And no, she won’t let me lease out a deer stand in our back yard. 



Here’s yet another Christmas song I helped write, and this one is funny if I do say so. Wrote it with Brent Burns, so those of you who know or have seen the two of us in concert are probably already laughing. With good reason on this one. This one is titled “Grandma’s Got A Glock”. And it ties in pretty well with the “deer” I mentioned above.



The Mayor of New York City is looking for a “Rat Czar”. Someone who can head up a team to get rid of a bunch of rats in the Big Apple. They’ve got so many that they need a “Czar”. They should come for training with some good ole boys here in the south. It would be fun to see folks in NYC dressed in blaze orange and camo.



Ferrari has rolled out an SUV that will cost you $397,000!  It’s the all new Purosangue SUV. I don’t know what’s more shocking. The fact that someone would charge that much money for a vehicle, or the fact that they had to put a hold on the orders because they can’t keep up with demand. It’s a 2-year waiting period to get one of these “break the bank” bad boys right now




The Yankees just offered outfielder Aaron Judge $300 million over 8 years to remain a Yankee. And…he’s got other offers coming. Where did I put my old Rawlings glove anyway? I’ll bet you Aaron is on the waiting list for one of those Ferrari SUV’s right now.



At least it’s a little cheaper to drive a $397,000 vehicle right now. I saw gas at one pump in Nashville selling for $2.65 per gallon yesterday. If it keeps dropping, it’s going to force me to put my “Dipstick”song back into hibernation again until the price sneaks up again. And you know it will.



Then walk. And walk backwards. Supposedly it improves your stability and balance. Experts say when you walk backwards you take shorter and more frequent steps and that leads to improved muscular endurance for muscles in your lower legs.


Lots of folks who walk use a step counter device on their wrist. So if you walk backwards, does it subtract steps?



The website NAMEBERRY listed what it says will be popular baby names for 2023. Pop culture comes into play for some of these names.


For Girls:

Billie (as in the singer Billie Eilish) Jolene as in the hit for Dolly Parton, and Scarlett and is Scarlett Johannsen the actress.


For Boys:

Everest, Cosmo, and Elio are at the top of the list.


Different names for the new year for sure.



I’ll be in a writing room with two talented ladies, Lauren Mascitti, and Kristen Bearfield. Lauren is just one of my favorite talents in this talent full town, and Kristen plays in a wonderful gospel-girl-group called “High Road”. They just toured Norway, and I’m anxious to hear some stories about that journey. Should be fun.


Have a great Thursday!

Dollywood Shows...A Rocket Gone...In-A-Gadda

BILL BLOG Wednesday January 25, 2023   Another Hump Day to get over. 52 with light rain in Music City today. Rain fits the melancholy I feel as I got word that my daughter and son in law touched down in Germany where they will be stationed with the Army for the next three years. The positive news is that my wife and I will be making trips to Europe to seem them and the beautiful scenery that now surrounds them. I’m going to Google and see if Tom Bodet has a light on for us there.   YESTERDAY I wrote with David Morris at a recording studio my publishing company owns. David signed a deal several months ago with my publishing company as well so we’re sort in the same family. David lives out east but comes to town regularly and stays a week or so to co-write with other folks as he did with me yesterday. He brought with him a true story of a friend who passed away recently and said something that made quite the impact with David. It’s all about not fooling yourself

Record Warmth...A Travel V-Log...No I Do

BILL BLOG Friday February 24, 2023   Friday morning and we’re headed for the last weekend of February already.   YESTERDAY My songwriting appointment cancelled yesterday after my co-writer called and let me know he wasn’t feeling 100% so that gave me the day open and I got out just a bit to enjoy the warm weather. It hit 80 degrees yesterday and that broke a 127-year-old record. The highest temperature on February 23 before yesterday was 74 and that was way back in 1897.    Folks had their AC on here in Music City yesterday. Amazing. It’s starting to feel like baseball weather around here.   Little cooler today with a high on tap of just 51.   And it’s not that long until we do spring forward in time. That’s coming up on March 12…just a couple of weeks away.   MARCH SHOWS With February coming to an end, here’s a look at a couple of shows I have on the books in March.   March 10 and 11 at Dollywood for a festival to celebrate the 50 th Anniver

Blackouts...Christmas...Looking For Audrey

BILL BLOG Monday December 26, 2022 Monday morning and I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas! They’re actually calling for a little light snow in Nashville this morning with a high above freezing. Almost 40 degrees for a high today and back up close to 70 by the weekend.   CHRISTMAS WEEKEND Well, we went through the really cold weather too. Down near zero part of the weekend, and e we had a little snow mixed with power outages, cars off the roads   and rolling blackouts… a first in the history of Tennessee. We did not get a notice from our electric company so it was a surprise when the power went out in 15-minute increments four different times early Friday morning. About the time I’d find the flashlight and light a candle or two the power would pop back on and I’d walk around resetting every clock we have. Nashville is not prepared for sub-zero and the power grid here was not capable of the high demand from folks who were cranking up their heaters. I’m not political but,
