Folks I may have to take the night off for THIS!
My HERO and my good friend Glenn Douglass Tubb has been
asked to host the 100th birthday of Ernest Tubb, his uncle
on the evening of Feb 8th which will turn Feb 9th at
The Midnight Jamboree at the Texas Troubador
Theater in Nashville Tennessee.
I WILL report MORE on this as I learn about the artists involved with this show.
Mr. Glenn said he would like to see a HUGE representation from the country music
community there to honor this fine man,and what he has done for country music.
He was indeed personally responsible for MANY artists to grace the Opry stage
and helped break them into the country music scene and being broadcast on
WSM all over the world.
When he started the Midnight Jamboree in 1947 it provided a “way in” for so
many people I couldn’t name them all.
This is STILL being done today with the help of David McCormick
Who is ONE HELL of a GREAT guy and keeps the Ernest Tubb Record Shop open.
He owns and operates them all and keeps them open so WE ALL can get the
hard to find country music AND the independent country music as well.
Without the E.T Record shop we wouldn’t have an ACTUAL STORE to go buy
Whitey Morgan or Hank 3 or Teea Goans or MANY of the artists I feature
on this website on a regular basis.
When someone asks me “What is country music?”
I tell them this: It is family, and it is representation of the common man.
Family being the Tubbs and the Williams and the Whitleys…generations upon
generations of different music all deeply rooted in country music.
Steve Earle and Justin Townes Earle..WHATEVER your preference it’s all
deeply rooted in family.
The common man’s music..where a convict can become forgiven and become a
Country music REAL country music has always represented the working man
and his blue collar.
I’ll be in contact with Mr. Glenn in the NEAR future concerning
the artists involved with this show.
I’m PRETTY SURE I’ll be there!
