2 of some of my favorite singers when it comes to blues. Do me a favor on this dog day Saturday afternoon and sit back and listen. It’s in their bones. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=J4uGGeS3Hqk.
There’s a little bbq joint kinda in the middle of nowhere on 231 just north of Troy Alabama. I flew by it today doing about 75 and hit my brakes 1/2 mile past it saying out loud to myself “Enough is Enough!!” and I made a U’ie. I pulled in and walked to the door. When I opened it the cow bell hanging from the inside handle rang. A few people sitting at tables looked up. An older gentleman with longer gray hair walked from out of the kitchen and stood behind the register........Gray haired guy-“You come through here much?”...Me-“I think I do for not even livin in this state. I’ve been seeing this place for 15 years and every time I drive by I wonder if your any good or not!!”.....Gray haired guy-“It’s some pretty good shit!!” I giggled. Me-“Is at right?” I pointed my middle finger at him. Me-“Well which piece of shit you think I outta order, your burger or your bbq sandwich?” He looked at me and giggled back. Gray haired fella-“Bbq sandwich without even thinkin about it.” Me-“We’ll that’s where I’m goin and I don’t know why we’re still even talking about it!!” My middle finger was still pointed at him........I waited about 5 and he brought it out. He said “Here! Take this (handing me a menu) and call it on in next time.” I hit the road and had it ate within 2 miles!!!......... That long gray haired fella was right..... THAT WAS SOME PRETTY DANG GOOD SHI$T!!!!!

Last night in the middle of my show in the Bristol theater someone screamed “WAYLON!!” So I sang Lonesome, Ornery and Mean. Met the guy afterwards. He had a flying W tattoo on his back that he wanted signed. I invited him and his wife on the bus. He went and got A bunch of memorabilia to show me. For some reason he gave me this album. Little did he know that that is my favorite picture, favorite album cover of Waylon and that I had it framed. It was the only time I asked Waylon for his autograph after all of the years of knowing him. I lost that in a house fire. I could not believe it last night when he gave me the “I’ve always been crazy” album!!!! Life sure is funny and interesting sometimes isn’t it?
