Join Us for a LIVE podcast: Sun 10 July at 4pm Eastern!

2016-04-06 15.37.12

Another reminder that I’ll be a guest on The Show video podcast tomorrow (Sunday 10 July) at 4pm Eastern time! W00t!

Brian Mallard, Timothy Childree, and I have a lot to squeeze into just one hour. I mean, there’s writing, photos, country music, pro wrestling, Southern food, and bizarre stories. Plenty of bizarre stories.

I’ll talk about my novel-in-progress, Songs My Father Barely Knew (links to an excerpt). I’ll also give a brief reading from my work. So far, nobody’s requested bad guitar playing or interpretive modern dance. So far. But, hey, anything could happen.

To join us:

  • Follow this link at 4pm on Sunday 10 July.
  • Program not streaming on the website? Just click here to follow along live on The Show’s official Facebook page.
  • Can’t join us live? No problem! It’ll be archived, so you can watch later.

See you then!

Now at Country Universe: My review of Buddy Miller’s latest!

I’m delighted to have my review of Buddy Miller’s new album, Buddy Miller & Friends: Cayamo Sessions at Sea, posted today at Country Universe. I’ve known the folks at CU for eight years—their reviews and artist interviews are independent, well-written, and always interesting.

Check out my guest post and subscribe to Country Universe. Oh, and don’t forget to check out Buddy’s new album. I recommend it highly.
