Pat Terry at the Celtic Cup, Oct. 15

Not too early to plan for this one! I'm honored once again to share a bill with Pat Terry.

Pat's songs and presentation are sometimes quirky, sometimes poignant, but always compelling. He is one of my musical heroes from way back, and I am far from alone in that.

He is well known to many from his days in the Pat Terry Group, who were part of the first wave of contemporary Christian music, a.k.a. "Jesus Music," in the 70's. Some know him for his hard-hitting, hard-rocking solo work from the 80's. Still others know his work from the liner notes of some very successful artists, as he eventually made a name for himself in the Nashville country market as a songwriter. His credits include hit songs performed by Sammy Kershaw, Tanya Tucker, Alan Jackson, B.J. Thomas, John Anderson and more.

Pat's latest work is as good as anything he's ever done, which is saying a LOT.

And, by the way, he's as nice a guy as you could wish to meet. Hence the part about me sharing the bill with him!

Amber Hayes CD release

My pal Bill Dee is helping propel this new talent to stardom, one song at a time. Hear the future of country music, blah, blah, blah, at this FREE show! Always fun to see the beginning of what may be the subject of a "Behind the Music" special (CMT style) many years down the road. Catch it before the smiles and good times turn to broken promises and debilitating addictions, just before the rehab and comeback!

Kidding. Except for the "free" part.

Amber Hayes CD release party
Thursday, September 2, 6-7 pm

Lounge music...the good kind

Some talented friends are playing in the Lounge at 12th & Porter this week. All of them have shared the stage with me, and will again, sooner or you know they must be good. Or generous and tolerant. Either way, worth a visit.

To prove that "two outta three ain't bad," here are Charlsey and Dave in action:

And here's a glimpse of Kathy Von:
