a way to start off a brand new year! JS was rockin' the house
tonight with a benefit for Alive Hospice. The place was packed
and everyone was having a good time. My daughter and I had front
row seats (practically within arms reach of JS) and she was
lovin' every minute of it. She asked JS to do her new favorite
song "Independent Trucker" (a new release on Brooks
and Dunns Greatest Hits 2 CD). He's only
played the song live one other time and it took him a few minutes
to remember the words but once he got started (with a little
help from Steve C), he really rocked (or maybe I should say
'rolled' since it is a truck driving song!)
the show Jeff asked Tom Hambridge to come out from behind the
drums to take over the mic on their co-written song "Nineteen".
Tom is a great singer/songwriter/performer in his own right
in addition to doing a heckuva job as JS's primary drummer.
an eye on the schedules for these two guys and run, dont walk,
to the show nearest you. You'll be kicking yourself for not
getting there sooner!
at the end of the evening, Jeff gave us a couple of songs on
the keyboard. What a versatile guy!!
