I just received the absolute most wonderful, coolest phone call ever known to man.   Alan O’Bryant called me, played “The 8th of January” on his banjo and wished me a happy 8th of nashville_bluegrass_band_20.gifJanuary.  How cool is that?  So, in the spirit of Old Hickory, I bid you the same.

This tune always makes me think of me and my cousin Buddy when we were just little folks, listening to this 45 record on his record player.  Jammin’ to Johnny Horton….timeframe about this time this picture was taken.
