Hello friends! It's been a long week for the Austin music community. I got to see some good music on Wednesday night. That felt good.

They're about to head out on tour for the rest of the year opening for and playing with legendary songwriter, Steve Earle.

Jimmy LaFave September 26, 2014

• May 23rd, 2017

Singer/songwriter, Jimmy LaFave lost his battle with cancer on Sunday. My heart goes out to his family and close friends. It's a sad, sad loss for the world of music. Maybe some of you were lucky enough to see him in his last performance last Thursday at The Paramount Theater. His beautiful music and gorgeous voice were known throughout the world. I didn't know Jimmy very well at all when he came to my apartment in 2014, but I felt like I had a new friend when he left. I had always loved his songs and his voice, but I was really taken by his genuine sweetness and how open he was when he was here. Jimmy will be missed, but his music lives on forever. Peace and love.

George Reiff March 1, 2013

• May 22nd, 2017

It's a sad day in the world of music today. Yesterday one of the great ones, George Reiff, lost his battle with cancer and left this world. George will be missed by so many. His musical reach was huge and he also had such an amazing impact on so many people on a personal level. Myself included. My thoughts are with his brother Michael and his family and his amazing collection of close friends. I loved George very much and am so saddened by this tremendous loss. My conversation with George is from episode 150 that came out on March 1, 2013. It's great. There's a lot of laughs and George's story and how he handled himself as a musician and human being is all there. I will miss George very, very much.

Hey guys! I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a strange weekend that made me believe that something celestial or astroligical was working against me, my tires and my man-purse. I did some driving and played some shows. We got to play a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It was a huge gala that rased over a million dollars for the JDRF. It feels good to be a part of that especially because my sister Nicole has "type 1". Anyway, I also got to spend some time with my aunts and my grandmother which was good. we had breakfast on Mother's Day and it reminded me how grateful I am to have such a loving family.

I had a great time catching up with Andy and Rusty. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
