Shindig At The Hall

 I had my picture made with Emmy once many years ago, but, it didn’t come out.  Finally got one. Wow.

I also snug me a new feller while at the Hall last night…all these years and he’s one I never had my picture made with. 

Dickens and Collie’s go back quite the long way.

  This nice lady came up to me and said “I know who you are”….I got to meet NM!  That was fun.

Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller did “Love Hurts” and just about kilt me.  That’s one of my top ten favorite songs ever and they brung it, as did Guy Clark. 

Oh, and I can’t let it slide that Petah Cooper, in all his glorious, eye-candy-ness…was also there. (He’s chatting here with his Cowboy-ness, Jack Clement. 

The absolute classiest move of the evening occurred when somebody knocked their drink over.  I’m not naming names, but, it was not me.

Putting The Hall In Hall Of Fame

It is SO about time somebody on the Hall of Fame committee decided that maybe it was time to get their head out of their hind end and put Pop Stoneman in the Country Music Hall of Fame.  I mean, the man only made some of the first country recordings ever.  Plus, he fathered something like 23 children. (One of which is Roni! Whoo!) Pop was a stud.

For real, I’m glad that Pop’s finally going in.

The Statler Brothers…oh my gosh, yes indeed.


Does this mean that Lester “Roadhog” Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys also have secured their spot in the HOF? For real…will it be Lew Dewitt, Jimmy Fortune or both?

Tom T. Hall? Oh heavens….they don’t call him “The Storyteller” for nothing. Tom T. should be considered Country Music’s official Poet Laureate. Just read some of his lyrics.

And what more can be said about Emmy? She made me love and appreciate old Country Music.
