“The official release date of my new album Songs The Jukebox Taught Me is May 20, but early-bird copies are now available exclusively from my website and from Heart of Texas Records. After more than ten albums of mostly original material, I’ve chosen to pay tribute to the heroes and teachers who taught me this music. I’m honored to have some of my personal heroes and friends as very special guests on the album, and I hope you enjoy the new record as much as we enjoyed making it.

To mark the May 20th release date, I’ll be in Nashville that week, performing as well as broadcasting my radio show from the SiriusXM Nashville studios. On Saturday May 21, I’ll perform on the Grand Ole Opry and be the musical host of the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree. And on May 23-24, I’m proud to take part in a TV taping of RFD TV’s Country’s Family Reunion for a special Tribute to Merle Haggard.”

Amy Nelson and Cathy Guthrie and Folk Uke at the Fourth of July picnic

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015


There were so many artists lined up to perform at Willie Nelson’s picnic, that one stage wasn’t enough. It wasn’t like the Stockyards in Forth Worth, either, with two stages at the ends of the Back 40, but it was two separate permanent stages, where you could turn around and watch the other stage, or at least listen. One was smaller, and lots of grass and picnic tables. The other is a bigger stage under a giant tower called the Mullett (a tall tower, used during races held on the track that surrounds the two stages.) That stage has a large concrete area “the pit”, surrounded by chairs, then grass at the back. It was hard, to impossible, to get to both stages to see the acts. They had a big screen on the side of smaller stage, so you could watch the other acts, but not visa versa. In the evening, the smaller stage area closed, and everyone came to the big stage area to watch the headliners perform into the evening.


Amy Nelson and Cathy Guthrie performed on the grassy knoll stage (I made that name up myself), and it was nice because it let fans get up and close and personal with them. Their set was as good and fun and irreverent as ever. They are so talented, and people are so entertained by their naughty lyrics and songs so much, I think we forget how really good they sound together. They sang their hits, and introduced a new song, and the fans loved them all.
