“With the collapse of the government, America has descended into chaos, and it’s citizens are left to roam the streets…” America’s 84 Street Boys, Author A. Alico.

Check out Mr. Alico’s work online; a powerful poet, a heart of dreams; relentless and determined in every production; accepting no limits or decline. This is  an exciting time in the life of an artist  tapping  into  unique potential as well as depth of character .

A. Alico’s  journey through life is indeed his  daily application in writing.

JJ is taking some time off…

Hey everyone! JJ here! I want to thank you for tuning in to Red Dirt Roots Radio!

Lots of changes have taken place since Jimmy and I traded places! Full Time and many hats describes the running and programming of a station. I will be taking a few days off from the Radio program to catch up on some personal situations needing attention. However; the music will continue to spin undoubtedly 24:7 as usual! Please continue to show your support to these wonderful Red Dirts Artists!


A Force? Indeed; to be reckoned with!!!!

They say not many womenfolk are  to be found in the red dirt and so the search continues for the heart that bleeds real country, southern rock and a bottle of blues and soul; splashing, pouring, soaking, drenching , seeping into the deep red dirt and one is found!

A girl walks into a bar one night…(no really, no joke…) The rest is history when the phone rings because of impact. Not bad news. Good and better when her voice stood out against the rest…

Kim Linson is  an artist from here in the Great North West; from Chehalis, Washington. She’s a mother, wife, singer, songwriter and local performer. Be sure to check out her latest independent album entitled Side Show on kimlinsonmusic.com. I recently had the privilege to talk with Kim on the phone about her musical background as well as what she is up to now a days in music and what her future goals are. You can catch the full interview youtube.com/watch on the reddirtrootsradio channel.

Remind Me Why?

1684311005226713Choose your hard…You know that humbling feeling of not being able to get ahead of the rat race? I had a few too many of those days with trials I felt were over my head. Yet our little hearts can handle more than we think they can as long as we remember to BREATHE!!!

Babies have a recovery rate much greater and  faster than adults! Just visit the cardiac ward and talk with the nurses and doctors on staff and they’ll tell ya how tough those kids are! They say adults take longer to recover because we feel sorry for ourselves!!! I believe it! I feel very sorry for myself when I’m simply having computer problems!

 They’ll always be something to complain about. They’ll always be the idea of not enough or too much. The art of contentment is the goal here. To get to a point of not just “getting by” but rather “tapping in” . Tapping in to the riches of character. The character in others around you…taking time to stop and hear a story…to consider…to listen…to open up and stop the rat race of life…the shallow treading in familiar water or… the deeper we dig in a monotonous rut. So it is; ya step out…ya dream big…you go for it and when you’re tired; just remember…the pursuit of happiness is a blessing—– not a right! Hard work may or may not pay off when ya want it to but ya do whatcha gotta do and there’s contentment in knowing ya did just that with all ya had to give…tears, sweat, work and little to show for sometimes…It’s alright…you’re where you need to be in all that. So keep on keepin’ on!!!

The Times They Are a Changing

Howdy Y’all! A few months back I realized that Red Dirt Roots Radio was starting to suffer a bit because I had become way too busy and was unable to dedicate the time required to continue in the day to day operations. This all happened about the same time that Joshua Claussen decided to leave and we brought in Jeri James to fill his spot.

It didn’t take long after getting Jeri involved with us that I realized she was the one who needed to be the new Chief at Red Dirt Roots Radio.

She has the drive and the unwavering passion for Red Dirt Country Music and TRUE Country Music in general.

So…y’all give her your support and tell her howdy when you get the chance.

I will still be around a bit as host of the Real Country Countdown.

Y’all be good!

Jimmy E.
