We’re in Nashville for AmericanaFest, but there’s something AMAZING happening back home tomorrow night. Rebecca Newton & The GiddyUp Cowgirls are a talented group of women who are going to sing my songs in our absence for this week’s Shake Sugaree Americana Residency.

Watch it live 7-10pm EDT Wednesday night on Youtube, Facebook, on the Periscope app @jonathanbyrdmusic, on Mixer as ShakeSugaree and on Twitch as PickupCowboys. I will also be watching and commenting live.

There’s a Jonathan Byrd tribute show and I’m not even dead! I’m not sure how I got to be the luckiest guy in North Carolina, but I’m pretty sure that I am. Here are The Blue Hallelujahs singing ‘Clean’:

Thanks to Barry Tomlinson, Ray DeNeve, and Spencer Scholes for running tech for the Shake Sugaree Americana Residency, especially in our absence!

Other artists: Alison Murry, Rebecca Newton, Nancy Middleton, Wendy Lee Shadburn, Lisa Rhodes, Violet Bell, Lyn Koonce, Leah Kaufman, Jess Klein, Gracious Me, Sallie Scharding, Eric Bannan, Wes Collins, Barry Gray, George Hindenach “as Austin McCall,” Wes Collins and Eric Bannan “as Jonathan Byrd,” Glenn Jones on bass, and Jonathan Robinson “as Johnny Waken.”
