Chris Stapleton at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic in Austin

Thursday, July 16th, 2015


This was my first time seeing Chris Stapleton perform.  He and his band, which includes his wife Morgane, performed at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic.  The picnic is always fun because you get introduced to other great music that you might not normally hear.  They were great.

Morgane Stapleton



Kentucky-born singer, songwriter and producer Chris Stapleton is one of Nashville’s most revered craftsmen, with a 15-year career that includes No. 1 hits, Grammy Award nominations, feature film contributions, the respect of his peers and, now, a new album.

Stapleton will release his highly anticipated debut “Traveller” on May 5. The Mercury Records Nashville release is the rare mainstream country album eagerly awaited by fans on both sides of the dial.

Blessed with an otherworldly voice, Stapleton earned this respect in numerous recording studios and anonymous writing rooms on Music Row and on stage as a touring headliner and opener for the most popular acts in the genre.

He has written five No. 1 songs for George Strait, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner and contributed cuts to several major motion picture soundtracks. He’s also been nominated for three Grammy Awards and won the International Bluegrass Music Association Emerging Artist of the Year award as a member of The SteelDrivers.

His songwriting credits span all genres and artists from Adele to Jason Aldean and he’s recorded with everyone from Miranda Lambert to Don Williams.

King of the Road

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

“You know, it’s funny. One night in a motel in Phoenix, Arizona, I wrote ‘Dang Me’ in just four minutes. It took me six weeks to write ‘King of the Road.’ I was driving from Davenport, Iowa, to Chicago, and somewhere along the way I saw a sign on the road which read, Trailers for Sale or Rent,’ and for some reason that phrase stuck in my mind. It wasn’t until later, in Boise, Idaho, that i really sat down and made something out of it, . . . although I had to induce labor to get it completed. I got stuck after the first verse, so i went out to a Boise store and bought a statuette of a hobo. I sat and stared at it until the rest of the tune came to me.” —Roger Miller (as quoted in Billboard and the Nashville Banner)

“Just me and the great Willie Nelson” — William Duvall

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014


“Just met the great Willie Nelson at the Admiral’s Club in O’Hare! This man is one of my ALL-TIME favorites and he and his family could not have been nicer to me. It’s truly the greatest feeling when you meet an idol and they’re just as cool as you ever imagined.” — William Duvall



Enjoy Duvall with Alice in Chains, in case you haven’t

Willie Nelson and the Peterson Brothers

Thursday, May 1st, 2014


As if getting to hear Willie Nelson & Family in concert wasn’t enough, we got to hear so much great music Tuesday at the Back Yard in Austin, including Folk Uke and the Peterson Brothers, pictured here with Willie Nelson and Family on his bus, before the show.

These guys rocked, too.  Their dad was there, too, and he was so proud of his guys.  Check out the band’s music and follow them on  their FaceBook Page

“An awesome evening!  Thanks to Mr. Willie Nelson  for the opportunity to be a part of his amazing Birthday Celebration! Thank you Connie Nelson, Paula Nelson and the entire Nelson family for your kindness to the Peterson Brothers Band.

As always, Thanks to all of you for your support, you have continued to make our journey possible, and we appreciate you! — at the Backyard LiveOak Amphitheater. “
