Friday morning in Nashville and the last weekend of January is already on us. 53 degree high to start the weekend here.
I had an off day to catch up on stuff and took some time to pitch some songs to artists and producers, some folks in particular that I know are getting ready to go in studio and start recording songs.
I also got a call from an Australian cow-writer Katrina Burgoyne whom I’ve mentioned before. She was a contestant on the Bachelor TV in Australia several years ago…did not get picked. BUT…recently was married to a wonderful guy who films videos and is a producer as well. She was calling to tell me they are getting ready to record a very fun song we wrote called “Wife Trial” which was an idea she brought to me because at that time she was wondering if her now hubby was EVER going to propose. So we wrote this to the point funny song about that. She took it home and played it for him…he laughed but she had no idea he had just bought an engagement ring and popped the question right away. To really get how ironic and funny that is, check out this video of Katrina performing it alongside several other young girl writers at a show in Nashville awhile back. So glad that she’s going to record this tune.
We got our first Facetime “live” messages with my daughter and her husband as they were taking a tour of the city in Germany they now live in. We went along with them for a little tour. Though it was cold enough for my daughter to be wearing two earmuffs, it looked absolutely gorgeous. European towns are almost always gorgeous with their cobblestone streets and old school buildings. They were having a great time checking out their new city, and we’re excited to go see them there as soon as we can. My wife was excited to see a Steiff Bear shop while I’m thinking, where is the German Beer Garden!?
TRACK OF THE DAY
Nick Dumas, a great young musician, singer, songwriter who lives in Wisconsin is releasing his bluegrass album that I have the title track on “Details” that I co-wrote with Tim Stafford and Becky Buller. I MAY have featured this one before, but because it’s release day, and available now for purchase, it just made sense to share this song “Details”. Thank you Nick for recording it.
VIRUS HEALTH NOTES
A new CDC reports admits that those getting the latest booster shots are not fully protected from getting sick. They’re saying they are only 48% effective.
There are reports that the U.K. is going to end COVID boosters period for those under the age of 50.
A lot of folks must be stressed. The use of sleeping pills has doubled in the U.S.
My friend recently got divorced from his wife. They decided to split the house. He got the outside.
The Mayor in NYC REALLY wants to go electric. He’s shooting to make all Uber and Lyft rides electric by 2030. And that’s not that far away.
A guy in Florida goes to by a lottery ticket and a rude person cuts in front of him. So he decides to buy his scratch off ticket at the counter instead of the machine he was trying to buy it from. His scratch off ticket paid off to the tune of a million dollars. Karma. Good ole karma.
I’m rhyming with young Addie Levy (who shows off her mandolin skills in the video just linked) today from Knoxville, the young musician artist who works a lot at Dollywood. And this time my buddy Steve Dean will join the two of us and we’ll see if we can’t create something that fits what Addie does. Looking forward to it.
“Who Dey”! The Bengals and Chiefs on Sundays alongside 49’ers vs Eagles. Hoping the Bengals will make it back to the Superbowl again! I’ll also be doing some prepacking for a road trip that will take me to McAllen, Texas Thursday night with Hits & Grins.
And then to Boca Grande, Florida on Friday night with Linda Davis & Lang Scott and our "Evening in the Round" show. More on that next week.
Have a great weekend!
