We have a GREAT review of the new Boo Ray album called Tennessee Alabama Fireworks coming, and it releases on February 15th. You can read all about his holiday playlist HERE from this past Christmas, and I covered a recent show he played at Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge. I have a BUNCH of news coming from my buddy this month here, and YOU NEED to go out and catch him on stage!

His new video for his first sing “20 Questions” was released recently. This is property of Paste Magazine, and used with permission. This single launched on Spotify and many other resources for music, as well as his other song “Don’t Look Back” recorded at the iconic Sun Studios.

See folks, many folks play music for a living, but there are a few folks that LIVE music like Boo Ray does. I have had a few conversations with him about music history, and I found him to quite enjoyable to talk to. He knows about where the genre he loves came from, and who ushered in it’s growth. HE IS one of the many responsible for continuing the passion of our Legends, and you can SEE IT in his demeanor.

As far as I’m concerned he and Miss Elizabeth Cook, who is sometimes around on his recordings and such are Legendary local fixtures in Nashville. Mr. Boo Ray is an integral part of my local music community here, while at the same time he brings a little west coast flavor to his music.

PRE-ORDER

You can read about the Magnolia Roads summer party I covered Here, as they celebrated their anniversary. In my opinion he was one of the best sets on that entire show, and I am always really excited to see him in the future.

More often than not, I hear so many older people say we’re loosing all the good ones. I dont listen to music anymore because all of the real ones are gone. I reply with well Charley Pride put a new album out…crickets. They don’t respond with sales and attendance to shows, and that alone can lead to the detriment of Country Music. Actually they reply with WOW so and so is still alive I thought he died in whatever year they say.

One of Country Music’s more overlooked Legends is none other than Miss Lacy J Dalton, and right now she has a brand new EP out called Scarecrow. This album has four songs of edgey more Americana style of music, even though she pretty much cut her teeth on Country.

This is the official press release :

Dalton has surrounded herself with experienced musicians on this project, including bassist John Avila, also a renowned producer, composer, arranger, and vocalist whose credits include performing with Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Oingo Boingo, and drummer David Raven, who has recorded and toured with the likes of Keith Richards, Norah Jones, T-bone Burnett, Steve Earle, Shelby Lynne, and Lucinda Williams.

Lacy J. Dalton first hit the charts with “Crazy Blue Eyes” in 1979, followed by hits including “Takin’ It Easy,” “Black Coffee,” “Everybody Makes Mistakes” and her signature song, “16th Avenue” which was voted one of Country’s Top 100 Songs of all time by Billboard Magazine. Besides her charted hit songs, she has recorded duets with the likes of George Jones, Bobby Bare, Glen Campbell and more. She not only toured with Willie Nelson, she was the only female on his “Half Nelson” album, which also included duets with Ray Charles, Merle Haggard, Carlos Santana, Neil Young and more. The album went Platinum and Lacy received a gold record for her contribution.

“I’m loving how this musical journey continues,” says Dalton. “I think the title track of the new EP ‘Scarecrow’ is the best song ever produced on me. My good friend Reverend Barbara Ann Fletcher remarked to me ‘that song makes you a whole new you, and it makes me a whole new me,’ and I love that the way that song turned out can make someone feel that way.”

In early 2019, Lacy was pleasantly surprised to receive several awards from Strictly Country Magazine, including the President’s Choice award for best well written music for ‘Boundless Skies’ and the Pete Huttinger Award for Music Excellence for the CD ‘Last Wild Place Anthology.’
