SHOW AT DOUGLAS CORNER.. IN NASHVILLE
Here is my humble review..
I will admit that I was somewhat skeptical about how a NEW show format was going to go over with the people, especially a format that would have me talking more and telling stories about what I have witnessed in my life. I guess because I LIVED IT they were unique but who would care? To my surprise, EVERYBODY SEEMED TO CARE! The comments after the show were so very positive. Stories about Travis and how and why he wrote certain songs, meeting Jerry Reed by way of Chet Atkins, my encounter with Andy Griffith in the men's room at Harrahs at Lake Tahoe, to name a couple. It blew me away with the response I received. There was also plenty of music.
I was playing my custom two-sided Langejans "Super Dualette" guitar with the new Paul McGill pickup system. Never before have I had an audience go on and on about the sound of a guitar. I know that I have not had a pickup system on any guitar that sounds so majestic but I didn't think that non guitar playing people would know the difference, but they certainly did. McGill, I think you have a winner with your creation. Thank you.
Kimberley Dahme is a 6 foot bombshell of a blonde that has been my friend for many years. We have done numerous shows together in the past and she always "Wowed" the audience with just herself, her voice and her guitar. But her career changed course for awhile when she joined the band BOSTON as a singer and their bass player. For whatever reason she is back in Nashville now and I was fortunate enough to have her start the show. I have always been a fan and that was all reignited last night. Kimberly, thank you! You are so great!
Can't wait to see how this new format works out in the future. Also I would like to thank my manager, John Haring, for shoving me in this new direction. Your hunches seem to be spot on. Can't wait for the next show.
I would also like to thank Bob Seaman, Ronnie Wade and Kathy Wade for the quick turnaround on your photographs.
