CLUTTERED CORNER

Matt Hillyer talks about what going solo means for Eleven Hundred Springs, and makes mention of old Cluttered Corner favorite Steve Helms.

 

Okay.  So do you wanna know why everyone's talkin' about this new up-and-comer, Troy Cartwright?  Then watch his performance here: www.BestinTexasOnline.com.

 

A big old Texas thank you to our friends at Freedom Jeep Chrysler for being our initial sponsor of the Cluttered Corner the past year!  We couldn’t have done it without them!  (This unique connection with Texas/Red Dirt music opens for sponsorship in just a few weeks so let me know if you’d like more details for your business!)

 

LOOKS LIKE WORLD RECORD MAY BE BROKEN

Congrats Roger Creager and his crew for pulling off what may turn out to be breaking the Guinness World Record for Largest Raft of Swim Rings/Tubes.  Approximately 950 people joined him on the Guadalupe River Saturday in New Braunfels.  They are waiting for Guinness to confirm it but it sure looks like they did it based on these photos!  Congrats Roger!

 

 

STEWART’S SUPERMAN

Stewart Mann has written a wonderful song for a 5 year old boy named Danny that has an inoperable brain tumor.  Stewart found out about Danny when he saw on Facebook that Danny’s family was asking for birthday cards to be sent to him.    Please give the song a listen!  Stewart says he hopes to “record this and get it out to all the child cancer centers, Ronald McDonald Houses, anywhere it might bring more hope to kids!” 

 

Even though his birthday was last week you can still send cards to Danny Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA, 02035.

 

 

 

JON WANTS TO KNOW

The official music video for Jon Wolfe’s new single “What Are You

Doin’ Right Now” is out.  The video accompanies the first single from Jon’s upcoming sophomore album Natural Man, set to be released later this year.  The video was directed by award-winning director Mason Dixon and shot in Nashville, TN.  (We won’t hold that against him though! LOL) You can watch it here: http://www.cmt.com/videos/jon-wolfe/1062943/what-are-you-doin-right-now.jhtml
