Summer 2014

Hello friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you enjoying all the best summer has to offer.  I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about two very special shows I have coming up.

July 18th-20th my hometown, St. Stephen, MN is celebrating its centennial.  I will be doing a show on July 19th at 3:30 PM.

The show along with other events will be held at Smoley Field.  I haven't performed in St. Stephen (other than singing in church) for many years.

What makes the show extra special is that I'll be performing with Sherwin and Pam Linton and their band the Cotton Kings.  I toured with Sherwin's band while I was in high school and after graduation for several years.  He is a legendary performer and was a great mentor to me in the early days of my music career and continues to be.

Also, I'll get to sing with my sister Pam.  She and I sang together growing up and we still do when we get together, though not very often on stage anymore.  I have some special songs selected and this will truly be a show I'll treasure forever.  Admission is free.  I hope you can make your way to visit the town and the people so near and dear to my heart.

Speaking of people and places near and dear to my heart, on September 1st I will be doing a show in Catlettsburg, KY for their annual Labor Day Celebration.  Some of you may remember that George Jones performed for this event many years throughout his career.  Of course, I was able to be there for several of those shows.

Last year we did a special tribute to George.  This year, the Jones Boys and I will be doing a show in our own right.  The people of Catlettsburg have always made us feel so welcome and this will indeed be another special show.  I miss making music with the Jones Boys and this is sure to be a memorable event.  We have some special songs selected and knowing how much Catlettsburg loves George Jones, we plan to add a George Jones song or two.  The show begins at 7:00 PM.

The stage is located on the corner of Broadway and George Jones Place.  I'm so excited that I'll be able to open for two of my favorite country singers that night as well.

Also on the show are Gene Watson and T. G. Sheppard.  The show is free to the public and promises to be a night of great country music.

Over the past few months I've been enjoying filming my Savor the Flavors show.  The latest episode finds me at La Creperia Café in the historic Ybor City area of Tampa, Florida.  Watch the video to learn more about the area, and do a little sightseeing as I share original recipes inspired by my visit.
