A big old Texas thank you to our good 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!

 

GOOD NEWS!

Good news from Kent Finlay’s family!  Cheatham Street Warehouse’s favorite owner is recovering slowly following his bone marrow transplant that took place last month.  And the one and only King George Strait has written the forward of the new book by Kent’s daughter Jenni Finlay and co–writer Brian T. Atkinson: Kent Finlay: Dreamer!  Will let you know when it comes out.

 

LONG IN THE TOOTH

Billy Joe Shaver’s Long in the Tooth and no, I’m not talking about his age!  He has a new project coming out August 5 and you know it will be good!  It’s his first studio album in six years.  The album will be release just before his 75th birthday on August 16.  Of the album Shaver says it’s “the best album I’ve ever done.”  Let’s make his birthday a happy day by all going out and buying a copy of this new project!

 

SUNNY’S BEEN PROVOKED

My friend Sunny Sweeney has a new release that I’m definitely looking forward to!  It’s called Provoked and will also be out August 5.  One of the tunes, "My Bed," which Sweeney co-wrote with Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe, is performed as a duet with Will Hoge.  And as she told Rolling Stone Country that writing this tune was written during a tough time, "I was married to someone else and there were obvious issues and stuff and it just didn't work," Sweeney admits. "I was the one who didn't want to stay married anymore. Even being the one that wanted the divorce, I was still so torn up over it. I still did my shows and I still wrote a bunch of songs during that time, but it was the most emotionally draining thing I've ever been through." 

 

SHOOTER’S TRIBUTE

But wait there’s another new project coming out August 5 to put on your “MUST BUY” list: Shooter Jennings is releasing Don’t Wait Up (for George), a tribute to the late great George Jones!  Moved by his friendship with Jones, Shooter decided to put out a heartfelt, yet experimental tribute in his honor. “When people ask me about who I remember hanging around as a kid, I always say that I remember Tony Joe White and George Jones being the most frequent and consistent around the house. Very few people can look at a child and sees the full grown human inside them and make them feel important. George was always this way with me, making me feel like he took me seriously, no matter what age I was.” says Jennings.

 

KYLIE’S DECISION

Kylie Rae Harris has made a big change in her life!  She’s decided to move to Nashville where she will pursue the dream many singer/songwriters chase.  Here is a note from Kylie Rae on her move.

“Moving to chase something, instead of moving to run from something brings on a whole new set of emotions. Happy, nervous, excited, scared, a little sad.  In just a few short hours, the Kelly girls will be pulling up to load the trailer and spend our last night in TX together with my family. I feel a good cry or five in the near future.”

 

WON’T YOU BE OUR FRIEND?
