Well, Howdy there folks! Here’s the re-cap of Today’s show!
Hank was drinking enough whiskey for all of us on Dirt Hurt Tuesday, while I worked on my second cup of coffee.
Stephen calls it the Trifecta of Pain when you play three Hanks in a row; You’ll need a hanky and a hand if you get too upset and you’ll be crying tears in your tea or coffee on a a typical Tuesday around these parts. That was Hank Williams, Hank Williams, Jr. and the third.
Bleeding the wound with sad sad tunes like whiskey and you by Chris Stapleton.
Why the sad Tunes? Well you got to get your crying out before your feet can set to dancing!
Is it any surprise Chris is one of country music’s most decorated Artists int the way of music 2018? Grammy’s and awards, left and right and I’d be worried if you didn’t know of such a man as Mr. Stapleton.
Corner of Remembering:
Red Dirt Legend : Brandon Jenkins
We played Be the Revival
And following this song; we played Stoney singing another Brandon Jenkins original : Feet Don’t Touch The Ground. Details on the complications of Brandon’s heart history can be found on Savingcountrymusic.com.
Special Artist of the day: We spun ‘Same old Lovers’ which led me to check up on Shellee Collee and find out what she’s up to this year in music. Shellee has such a unique angle and perspective in all that she does and I’m not surprised to read that she is creating a new journey for her listeners; one that can provide healing and transformation , including a visual on her website shelleecoley.com. Red Tree Music Group is the name of the Independent label that picked Shellee up along the way to help her release each song “Chapter by chapter” or one at a time in a customized fashion.
