We're just back from our best U.K. tour yet. We'll be back in 2018. Thank you for your hospitality and enthusiasm. If you missed getting an album, you can order anything in the back catalog from Fish Records. Thanks to Peter Morgan of Fish Records for the work he's done on four successful tours. Thanks to the venues for opening your doors to a couple of cowboys.

 

I'm working on a song that needs sixteen simple lines. When it's finished, you could write it on a cocktail napkin. I've been working on it for about six months and I'm down to about one hundred and fifty possible lines on five pages and another twenty pages of notes. I offer this as a reality check for anyone who might be out there struggling with a song.

 

My friend Charles Humphrey III, bass player for Steep Canyon Rangers, just completed the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run in 29 hours. So I reckon I can keep going on this song.

 

But the biggest news of all is this, live from my little piece of heaven:

I like big buds and I cannot lie.

 

Your fan,
