Outlaws And Icons Day 3: Part 3

I LOVE this’s not even a job, not because it doesn’t pay but because it’s SO FUN.
It’s an honor to be friends with these people and to enjoy their work.
I love to buy their music and support what they do, and I love to share my own songs
with them too. IT ALL ends in a big wash, with no artsits the songwriter would starve.
With no writers the artist would starve, and with no producers…well…you follow me.

One of the funniest and most REAL artists I have EVER met in my days is Kara Clark.
She’s under Rusty Knuckles label but she’s NOT under a label, she puts out what
is in her heart. Not everyone will like everything every artist does and she
still rolls on unchanging. She’s not one kind of music she’s a bunch.
And the musicians she travels with and uses are FIRST CLASS players, they really
help her showcase her talent.
I would take a vacation day to go catch one of her shows, in my opinion she’s
that good.

In her solo acoustic set she did a song Mr. Jared said was his favorite and it
was really well written “The Band The Bartender And Me”..put me to mind of
Marc-Alan Barnettes song “Tables And Chairs”.
It had really good placement of a visual picture to me as a fan.
The sun set and the stage was dark and then the magic started…wow.
It DID NOT NEED anything else,it was lit up with blue lights and energy.

When her band got to playing she played a bunch of her songs from her
latest release (like I said before it’s on Rusty Knuckles label) like
She played ‘Preachers Hands” which is the public’s favorite song from
what I have heard being at the shows. They hollar it out the most.
I notice these things…..weird but true.

“Time Heals All Wounds” and “My Heart And My Glass” are just “feel Good”
songs I enjoy and everyone around me does too…I see it…
She also covers Jessie Colter’s number one hit “I’m Not Lisa”.
And does it really well!
I hope good things for Kara and I will be a part of promoting her.

This will conclude my coverage of Outlaws And Icons.
I want to THANK EVERYONE for being so nice to me and giving me
the VIP treatment. Gary Sargeant really rolled out the red carpet
for us all. We raised money for a good man Mr. Troy Rector and made
history for people like Bobby Bare.
YOU WILL hear MORE from this organization and from THIS WEBSITE
cause I was given specific direction to do so by them.

Outlaws And Icons Day 3: Part 2

 photo 8231f738-58d9-4a03-9a1b-399784114e4a_zps1075965c.jpg

Here I was talking to a bunch of people and taking pictures, basically being a fan.
I was sharing my knowledge and asking questions, and I heard “HOW OLD are you”? ALOT from
those guys. James Austin said he was astounded by my brain…I was really flattered!
But it got cut short when someone hollared HEY GARY J.B. IS ON!

I got RA and the weather was really messing with my knees…but I RAN to the stage
to see him! I first learned about him in the Myspace days, and when I was at
Porter Wagoner’s funeral I ran into a fellow named James Hunnicutt and he
further made me check out J.B.

I LOVE his music and his talent and the fact he is such a nice guy in person.
He is just an all around good and funny guy.
I really also LOVE his right hand man Mr. Buck Thrailkill. TO ME his is a hero!
When them two are together I cannot explain how much I enjoy it,
TO ME they are a superpower together!

AND PLUS one of the first songs he did was a GOOD ONE from his NEW ALBUM
‘Stripped To The Root” on the Rusty Knuckles label.
That song was “All The Little Devils Are Proud Of Hell”.
He also played a few more songs until I heard my personal favorite “Gonna Ride A Train”..
I LOVE THAT SONG, and he played “End Of The Road” and then he did
a GREAT cover of “Stittin By The Dock Of The Bay”.

THEN he brought out Billie Gant and they sang “11 months and 29 days” and I’ll tell
you what THEY NAILED IT! They had the whole place going NUTS. I think personally
it was one of favorite performances of the weekend.
And he brought out Whey Jennings and they sang “Don’t Think Hank Done It This Way”
I said before he was really awesome!

Kara Clark (Who will conclude my coverage) came up and they did “People Are Strange”
by the Doors, and a song by the Drive By Truckers.
I was really enjoying all this, I would eagerly go back next year!
The last song was with Josh Morningstar and they played “Wayward Drifter”.

If you ever get a chance to catch a J.B. Beverley YOU MUST GO…and tell him
I sent you! He’s a super nice guy and VERY talented performer.

20 Country Music Icons EVERY fan Should Know.

Here’s a re-cap of the list of this series.
20.Little David Wilkins
19.Glenn Douglass Tubb
18.Autrey Inman
17.Ralph Mooney
16.Elton Britt

So now I’ll continue this series with my choice for number 15.
And readers I gave this next one A TON OF THOUGHT because there are SO MANY
that deserve to be on the list. But I think you’ll enjoy my choice.

 photo 89dc7750-eb5d-4b72-8b12-700203493d4d_zps0c059d4d.jpg

Number 15 is NOT known as an an artist but his contributions to country music
made him a household name and HE IS VERY dear to my heart.
My choice for number 15 was STILL an icon nonetheless…Grant Turner.

He was born Jessie Granderson Turner in Baird Texas and as far as I am concerned HE WAS the voice
of our beloved heart and soul of country music…the Grand Ole Opry.
He served as the voice of it for all of 47 years.

He moved to Knoxville Tn in 1942 and rode an all night bus to Nashville on D-Day when the
Pearl Harbor was attacked June of 1944.
He auditioned and joined the staff under the direction of George D. Hay who started the whole
Opry (in my opinion).

He took the job of being the announcer of the televised portion of the Opry sponsored by
R.J. Reynolds in the late 1940’s.
In the early 1950s he hosted WSM’s Mr. DJ, USA program, featuring guest DJs from around the nation, and in the mid-1950s became the third regular announcer for Ernest Tubb’s WSM Midnight Jamboree, a job Turner held until 1977.

He did record some duets with Helen Carter under various labels throughout the 1950’s.
But he became the most famous for being THE VOICE of the Opry for the remainder of his career.
The amiable Turner for years hosted the Grand Ole Opry Warm-up Show, spinning records and taking requests on the Opry House Stage. Turner had a smooth, down-home style as he sat on stage and played records by artists set to appear on that night’s shows. Grant Turner worked Friday and Saturday night Opry shows, besides the summer matinees, until the night before he died. Known for his freindly personality and professionalism, Turner was one of three original members to join the Country Disc Jockey Hall of Fame, in 1975. Mr. Turner was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1981.

And on October 19th 1991 the world sadly mourned the loss of this beautifull man.
This man WAS the voice WE ALL grew up with and he was a HUGE part of my childhood.
