2017 Music Festivals: Mr. Dylan’s Big Birthday Blowout Bash.

2017 Music Festivals: Mr. Dylan’s Big Birthday Blowout Bash.

This one is really just a huge party thrown by my friend out there in Kansas City Dylan Thomas Dorrell who runs a shindig called Double D Productions.  Along with the folks over at Muddy Roots whom are some of the top contributing folks to my website present the tenth annual Dylan’s Big Birthday Blowout Bash 2017. This transpires Feb 9-12th 2017 at three venues in Kansas City, and the separate dates will have the band AND venue links available for you to click on to do some research if you’d like to.

I’ll be down there in May for the Westport Roots Festival if all goes according to plans sometimes with me the old body cannot always do it all anymore and I’m just taking life one day at a time. As long as I can do this, I plan to I can promise you that much. as far as festivals go, I try to change up some of them every year so I can juggle many of them but I’ll be honest I have my favorites and a few of them are just juggernauts on the scheduled bands.

I have literally over 100 current lineups POURING into my inbox from California to New England with Americana, Red Dirt, Bluegrass, Country, and Bluegrass..and other genres as well. There are quite a few things I would like to bestow upon all of you concerning this event, some news about a few of the bands here on this list I don’t always get to write about as much as I would like to.

I recently had an enlightening conversation with Mr. Travis W.T. Newton from a band I covered a few years back at Muddy Roots Main festival in Cookeville, County Graves. If you will recollect my previous coverage from Muddy Roots, they performed a damn fine set in what was their last performance together in that juncture. Back in 2015 HERE is my write up from their performance on stage 3. I shall NEVER forget that incredible gospel medley they closed their set with last time, now for the first time in awhile they are returning to Davey’s Uptown Ramblers Club on the Sunday leg of this festival type deal.

I recently spoke with Mr. Travis Newton concerning the ordeal and here is what he had to tell Gary Hayes Country:

This is going to be an interesting one for us, because the lineup is going to have two of our best friends that never played with CG before on top of the original three piece that is Nate McReynolds (Upright), Benjamin West (Mandolin), and myself. The two new guys are Baker McKinney from Shawn James & The Shapeshifters playing banjo, and Tyler Giles playing pedal steel. It’ll be a really fun and really intense show and I can’t wait.

As far as the future goes, I can’t really say what’s gonna happen. We always plan to play at least once a year and have a damn blast when we do. It’s sort of difficult because we’re all so spread out, but worth it when it all clicks. Nate and Ben are two of my best friends in the world and my two favorite folks to play music with. There’s gonna be something more for County Graves down the line at some point, I’m just not sure what exactly yet, there’s something on the horizon though.

Here’s the set list:
Sometimes They All Come Back
Part II
Calvary Hill
Arkansas
Dry Counties
Dust
Illinois Blues
Home Fires (WTN)
Old Pine Grove (WTN)
Bloody Williamson
Hellfire Victory
St James Infirmary
No Mansions

The Urban Pioneers will be appearing on the Friday leg of this event and Their latest album “Feast Or Famine” made my TOP 50 OF 2016. I recently was interviewed by Mr. Dustin Doug from Pirate Farm Radio where I briefly elaborated on all 50 of my choices, also they are busy filing their new variety television show “High On The Hog” which I’ll write more about at a later time.

I’m positive as they embark on their latest tour that we will be treated to some more wild onstage antics and offstage mischief by this trio. Also if you may not have heard they will be rejoining Mr. Jayke Orvis for a Broken Band reunion ONE TIME ONLY EXCLUSIVELY at the Westport Roots Festival that you can read more about HERE.

Currently I am busy checking out NEW albums released in 2017 and Roots Music Legends Split Lip Rayfield are no exceptions. “On My Way” is a twelve song masterpiece that is high up on my suggestion list for 2017 already. I got to see them last year at Muddy Roots on stage 1 and they killed it out there, I spent a lot on cd’s during this set.

Dates are set.

The Midwest Farmer’s Daughter On Tour With Canada’s Finest.

The Midwest Farmer’s Daughter On Tour With Canada’s Finest.

I just got off the phone with Pirate Farm Radio where I did a pretty lengthy phone interview about my TOP 50 Of 2016 and you have my number 7 pick, the Midwest Farmer’s Daughter herself Margo Price. Now I finally got to catch her a few years ago at Muddy Roots Music Festival where she performed a stellar set for us on the Old Wood Stage on a hot afternoon.

She captivated the audience with a brilliant display of Honky Tonk sound and style, and believe you me when I say that from an Americana standpoint the women are bringing bigger gloves than the men in the past few years. She’s one of the prominent ladies raising awareness to Americana music with her vibrant display of weekend stays in the Davidson County Jail, with descriptive songs of smoking crack and blowjobs.

You combine her with the poignant hurtful songs of  one of Appalachia’s upcoming powerhouses and my 2016 Artist Of The Year Canada’s Own Colter Wall you have a show that I strongly urge you not to miss if ti comes to our area. Mr. Colter has new merch available and Miss Margo has a TON of stuff available on her website as well.

Mr. Colter has already had a busy 2017 touring with Steve Earle And The Dukes at a bunch of City Wineries locations and also some shows with Amanda Shires. So both of these artists are indeed deserving of praise for their personal accolades in their own right, and both put forth one hell of a live show. Colter Wall possesses one of those distinguishable vocal styles that sicks out like a rooster wearing socks. You can indeed pick his voice out easily and plainly from other people.

Ronnie McDowell And Richard Lynch Make Midnite Jamboree Proud.

Ronnie McDowell And Richard Lynch Make Midnite Jamboree Proud.

Last night I had a very unfortunate thing happen at the Nashville Palace, for the FIRST TIME EVER I was misinformed (of my own fault) of the start time at 5. I got there at 7 when they were signing autographs and the show was packing up, and needless to say I felt like a total boob. In my defense I have been incredibly busy on many different factions of Country and Americana music all across this nation. I know literally thousands of managers and bands, I’m familiar with more songs than I could write down, and I’ve spent time in more green rooms than in my own living room.

Bands understand my friends understand it’s NOT EASY to do this gig here and even I miss the bulls eye on some shots, BUT FOLKS HAVE I GOT THE GOODS FOR YOU. So today we are going to touch on many things from the 70th Anniversary of that good old Midnite Jamboree hosted this week by Ronnie McDowell along with his guest Richard Lynch. As always Miss Jennifer Herron did a wonderful job as the announcer behind the podium that does the commercials where they play albums available at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop downtown. In fact not too long ago I wrote an article on Country Legend Jeannie Seely who shall be hosting it on March 4rth. Additionally they played a new boxed set of Jimmie Rodgers that just has been released, and E.T. was responsible for the lot of his recordings being made available to the public.

Of course Ronnie McDowell opened with his classic hit “Older Women”, and went in depth to explain all of his hits as he performed them. I really learned a wealth of information from this hour and a half of music, additionally I was truly entertained by his charismatic stage presence. He followed that up with his follow up song called “Watching Girls Go By” which garnished over 1 million radio plays.

He introduced his band as Billy Joe Royal’s piano player, the Legend himself Doyle Grisham on steel who is a Coral Reefer Bane member and recorded such classic hits as “Margaritaville”, as well as Mr. James Ducher who also plays for Jimmy Buffet. His son Ronnie McDowell on the drums (who was introduced as being from his house) and “Eddie” on bass, Eddie played for Roy Drusky, Jack Greene and Stonewall Jackson.

“Bringing It To You Personally” was next before he embarked upon another one of his stories about someone he is a BIG fan of, Elvis Presley. In 1954 shortly after Hank Williams died Elvis debuted on the Opry and was approached by Ernest Tubb, who was told it’s OK to be different. He was invited to play the Midnite Jamboree on Broadway, so they walked through Tootsie’s bar into the Record Shop where he performed the Jamboree. Guitarist Scotty Moore said every year that predeceased this event Ernest Tubb sent Elvis a Christmas Card until Elvis passed away.

In 1984 the song “Ruin My Bad Reputation” was at number 1 and that was his next offering as he went into a story about approaching Ernest Tubb’s bus as a young man. He elaborated to E.T. that he did a little of him in his show in a song where he did him and, Cash, Marty Robbins and Hank. He went on to ask if E.T. minded to which he replied “Hell No son, I wish you’d do my entire show”. Another reason I enjoy Mr. Ronnie and all of the many stories he touches on much like Billy Don Burns and people of their Ilk.

At that juncture he brought out Richard lynch to perform their new song that they just cut called “Love Tattoo” which derived from a poem a friend of his wrote in a hospital room. Mr. Richard turned it into a song and I’ll be including the video in this article prior to editing. I’m also going to embed this video of his future work with Bluegrass Legend Rhonda Vincent that his management brought to my attention.

So now then my friends going back to Mr. Ronnie’s command of this stage tonight he performed his 1979 hit “Wandering Eyes” with precise dignity and grace. He just absolutely OWNS the audiance during his shows and caters to US as individuals. He becomes connected with you as a fan, singing in the aisles and as he 1984 “Tied Up Baby” that went to number 2.

In 1985 he rleased a song called “Make Love To You In A New York Minute And Take My Texas Time”. As he went into telling us about his 8 years of opening shows for Conway Twitty with his THEN band the Kentucky Headhunters he performed “It’s Only Make Believe” which was written by Jack Nance. He recorded it with a portion of Conway Twitty doing parts of the song included in his own.

“If Only I Could Paint The Way I Feel” was a song that gave him the opportunity to tell us about his painitngs like the famous one he painted of George Jones getting his DUI on the lawnmower. He included his story of how George called him on Christmas day to bring it over to him and the spent the holiday together, and George stared at it for 30 minutes. Also this set included his 1984 hit “Bringing It To You Personally” before he went into a beautiful closing song written by Mickey Newberry “I Wish I Was In Dixie”.

All in all this show was truly a blessed time at an iconic venue for a wonderful cause tonight. I need to focus more on some of these future performances like the Riders In The Sky and MORE hosts in the future here. This area remains vibrant with Honky Tonk music and boasts many great places to have a few beers and some good food. I don’t care what anybody says about this area I remain positive about it and enjoy going over that way!

2017 Music Festivals: Mardi Gras Texas Style.

2017 Music Festivals: Mardi Gras Texas Style.

Ok everybody as most of you know I have many music festivals being featured for you on this website and Mardi Gras Texas Style is nothing short of amazing in many ways. To be honest there aren’t many on my radar or in my inbox until at least March, however I found a few for Feb. Down there in Dallas Texas we have a Red Dirt one day festival going on with some awesome acts like my buddy Shooter Jennings and MORE! Here’s the details and the lowdown complete with ticket and hotel links.

I love music festivals because they bring many acts together into one large (or in some cases smaller) area for me to cover at one fail swoop. Now granted festivals ARE difficult to cover for just one man but doggone it I’ll do my best to bring you the BEST 2017 festival coverage I possibly can. I especially would like to continue to bring more of the red Dirt Texas Country sound to my website and it’s events like this that warrant my opportunity to engage in such music.

You can label it “Red Dirt” or “Americana” or “Roots Music” I just usually call it GOOD music that I feature on this website. And even though I am a little biased, Shooter puts on a good show I can assure you. This event looks to be an outdoor and indoor festival that will commence rain or shine and the front gates open at 2PM, I have included some general information on here as well. Both of the main stages are located in climate controlled buildings so you do not have to worry about inclement weather.

You will NOT be allowed to leave and come back to the festival and also coolers are NOT allowed. There is no camping available and there will be full bar services for patrons. Once I saw the lineup I was ecstatic about this event out there in Dallas, Now as far as the lineup It appears to be on five stages with sponsors naming the stages accordingly:
99.5 The Wolf:
Casey Donahew
Stoney LaRue
Mike Ryan
Parker McCollum

Coors Light:
Cody Johnson
Shooter Jennings
Roger Creager
Randall King
Tyler And The Tribe

99.5 The Wolf East Stage:
Shane Smith And The Saints
Dalton Domino
John Baumann
Matt Kimbrow
Sarah Hobbs

Coors Light West Stage:
Kyle Park
Joey Green
Blue Water Highway Band
Songbird Jones

I have been wanting to get out to Texas for some time now and one day soon I plan to remedy that portion of my bucket list. You can purchase tickets for this event HERE. As always upon looking at websites and doing research of different areas I found a suitable list of accommodations for you if you see what you like PLEASE patronize  this event.

Kelsey Waldon, Tyler Childers And Truckstop Waterfall At The Basement Nashville.

Kelsey Waldon, Tyler Childers And Truckstop Waterfall At The Basement Nashville.

Last Sunday night my friend and I went on down to Nashville to have a little night out of fun, we had a wonderful supper at Jack’s Barbecue over on Trinity Lane for some wonderful vittles. As always It’s one of my go-to places for smoked turkey and trust me It’ll make you salivate and make your stomach happy with delight.  The one on Trinity Lane is my usually my starter before a Titans game or Bridgestone Arena show.

We briefly stopped downtown at Robert’s for a quick beer and saw the Tennessee Walkers play a number or two and I’ll spoil a future article..I got permission from Local Legend Chris Scruggs for an upcoming steel guitarist edition, now in case you missed my first one with Travis Egnor from the Horse Traders you can read that HERE. OK and also folks I will be including Miss Kelsey’s steel player Brett Resnick in a future edition.

So we made our way down to 8th Ave to the The Basement Nashville which is directly below Grimey’s Records not far from Douglass Corner Lounge and Zanies Comedy Club. I tell you WHAT for a Sunday night we had a REALLY GOOD crowd down there, all three of these bands are developing their own following in their own rights. I have covered these first two MANY TIMES in the past in different forms and places, and the first band I’d like to cover and share is the combo of Mr. Joe Macheret and Mr. Scott Risner called Truckstop Waterfall which is basically folk music with mandolin and fiddle and guitar.

Mr. Joe plays with Joe’s Truck Stop and The Tillers and a few others and Mr. Scott plays with Buffalo Wabs And The Price Hill Hustle which is a REALLY good band you MUST go check out if you never have yet. Sadly I was very sick last year during the Crooked Smile Fall Fest and I could not go to Indiana to feature them.

Regardless of their other ventures this duo is quite entertaining to watch play live. They have been currently on a several week tour with Tyler Childers and got to take some time off to do some fishing. In my opinion (and you can put this in your mailbox) Mr. Tyler is the next big thing to come out of the local circuit..the next Cody Jinks if you will. He IS destined for bigger and better venues..not that the Basement lacks ANY prestige, no no no but this young man is headed for places like 3rd and Lindsley and eventually the Ryman just give him a small amount of more time.

Now let’s talk about Truckstop Waterfall’s set, they opened with a song called “Camptown Races” and began to showcase their down home harmonies like “Lonesome Midnight Blues”. Mr. Joe tells Gary Hayes Country that the song “used To Be” was an old Bill Monroe song that he heard as a child. HEY Speaking of Bill Monroe I’ll be releasing an article about the 5 CD set coming out form Rhythm Bomb Records soon, watch for that.

“The Moon Sang” was the next song which was one of Mr. Joe’s  songs form his own catalogue. The next song was called many things in the past “Dig A Hole” or “Darling Corey” or “Dig A Hole In The Meadow”, It’s an old Bluegrass tune and it’s not documented for sure who wrote it, or I haven’t been able to research it to a pinpoint extent yet.

Perhaps the best song in their entire set was the song called “The L And M Don’t Stop Here Anymore” which fit into tonight’s ambiance quite well, you see Mr. Tyler represents a long lost group of people in East Kentucky and West Virginia that have only one means of living (legally)…mining coal.  They rolled on with a song called “Gypsy Moth” and displayed many song filled with talented instrumentals and solos, as Mr. Joe changes from guitar to his fiddle they compliment each other quite well in every way.

“Banjo Pickin Bacco Spittin Gal” was a song Mr. Joe wrote about an supposed ex girlfriend of one of his friends, and after he wrote the song the friend didn’t even remember her any longer. Gotta love them gals with a mouth full of dip from the Country, this song reminded me of the BR5-49 song “Hum Dinger”..which wasn’t their original song I do believe. “Columbus Stockade Blues” was next and that was followed up with a song that was placed in a movie called “Eat My Dust”. Now the song was an instrumental and the movie was Ron Howard’s and it was used during a car chase scene, I think you can Youtube the song and study it to place it in the movie.

I been saying for years now that I agree with W.B.Walker’s Old Soul Radio Show on Tyler Childers he’s an upcoming powerhouse juggernaut.I mean he is developing a heavy following in every city he visits brick by brick and day by day, and tonight was proof of that as this show garnsihed an impressive turnout for a Sunday night in my opinion.

The place was packed and the whole crowd sang along as he poured his entired soul into the old Utah Phillips song “Rock Salt And Nails” which was also made popular by Steve Young. I remmeber the very first one year anniversary show of W.B.Walker where they broadcast it from his living room couch, and I was turned onto Tyler’s music. My My My how time has grown us ALL. I was just a little blog and now much to Mr Tyler’s argument I have graduated into a Hobby Blog.

So “Honky Tonk Flame” was next along with “Boiler Room” as this set was choked full of some songs I haven’t heard live yet, I’m glad I indulged in this show. I’m sure I speak for my friend we had a wonderful time down there last weekend. Another song that blossoms forth a plethora of singer is the song “Nose To The Grindstone”. That song is becoming a working man’s anthem to be honest, as a Rheumatoid Arthritus patient I can see this song. I’m beat from years of hard work and body abuse, and I keep my nose to it as well.

“I Swear To God” was a good song and he followed that one with a song called “Purgatory” and accompanied that song with a short story about dating a Catholic girl. His wife now Miss Senora is also a very talented young lady and when I first heard of her she was Senora Mae Lainhart and now it’s Childers. They are both very talented and good hearted people I can’t get enough of.  Another powerfull song he sings called “Charleston Girl” was included in this set as well, that song is one of his more popular ones as well, I highly suggest you go pick up Live At The Red Barn Sessions albums.

“Lady May” was next and he followed that with a funny story about his new camper he bought from an honest Christian man and it may have been called “Country Squire”. Both he and Miss Senora are busy enjoying this new aquisition to his touring life, and buddy I don’t know shit about campers either but as many festivals as I cover I need one badly. He began to close his set with “Help Me Make It Through The Night” and “Time Of The Preacher” Reprise from Willie Nelsons concept album “Red Headed Stranger”.

His epic set was closed with “Follow You To Virgie” and a song that had the WHOLE PLACE singing along called “White House Road”. His songs are just so simple and easy to relate to however complex and poignant in their own manner as well. He defiantly isn’t singing about hipsters drinking lattes.

Miss Kelsey Waldon is one of my TOP 50 OF 2016 and anybody that wants to argue can TRY but you’ll not emerge victorious in any fashion. She IS a rising force within Americana Music or Red Dirt or whatever YOU want to label her I just call it GOOD STUFF, no fluffy lyrics or flashy anything just good pure Country Honky Tonk music. Unfortunately I have yet to feature her until NOW.

This above video is from one of the BEST songs of 2016 I knew of called ‘False King”, I mean the line “You can’t put a crown on the head of a clown and hope he turns out to be a king” is a stroke of genius in my opinion. From the first time I heard her thumping bass and steel infused music way back in late 2014 I was hooked on this woman.

“Dirty Old Town” was (as a lot of this set was) off her 2016 album of aforementioned accolade, and as I studied her style I noticed she has a pretty good stage presence and looked quite content within the confines of a venue such as this. That observation wasn’t always the forte of the younger ladies of Country Music but now in today’s local market the women are leading the pack for the lesser known music. It shall not remain lesser known if I have anything to do with it.

“You Can Have It” was next followed by “One Time Again” all of these songs were filled with ripping guitar solos as well as plenty of pedal steel and a fast paced whipping beat. This venue has in the past housed Legends of all types and in my opinion it’s an epicenter for the local bands and record junkies like me with Grimey’s up top. “Don’t Hurt” was next followed by a song she co-wrote with Country Music Legend Vern Gosdin called “There Must Be A Someone”.

“High In Heels” was one of the songs off her 2014 offering “Goldmine”, although I enjoy her new album more this album was also a highly suggested acquisition to your collection if you are asking my directions.  “Not My First Time” was next in her set along with “Traveling Down This Lonesome Road” now I want to touch on something here. That particular song showcases her vocal range really well as she hit high notes with little troubles, I especially watch for the LIVE act compared to the RECORDED act. She does WELL LIVE and you usually see that more in local music than the bigger acts but the woman NAILS it..now in the future I shall look for vocal consistency.

I also want to flip back for a moment to “False King” and something bands often lack, TIMING. That song has a brief  pause toward the end and the band pulled it off nicely. I was waiting for that to either shine or shit, it shined quite nicely there. “Heartbreak” was next followed by “All By Myself”, and ended with a much wanted  encore of Waylon’s “Are You Ready For The Country”.

All in all this show was worth way more than the tickets were priced at but I can see why Sunday prices are sketchy for attendance reasons. I would have paid 15 easily for just either of these acts by themselves…but the lower price left more room to buy STUFF, and we ALL need STUFF right? RIGHT. Buy STUFF from YOUR favorite local bands folks.
