Oh yes, it’s March and supposed to be SPRING in a few weeks.  Well, we’ll see how that works out.  Might have another Arctic Polar blast or whatever they’ve been calling it before we see what I call spring weather .  At least it was nice for one week during the CFR cruise.  I love  Texas but I  sure enjoyed a week of good weather in St. Thomas and St. Maartan in the middle of winter.  Hate to rub that in to you folks still dealing with frozen tundra.  I enjoyed meeting a lot of nice fans on the cruise too.   We had shows with Bill Anderson, Jim Ed Brown, Helen Cornelius, Bill Dean, David Frizzell, Rhonda Vincent,  The Church Sisters and Mo Pitney.  I had not heard the young twins, The Church Sisters before and they were amazing with their harmonies. Also enjoyed the fine voice of young Mo Pitney who is on Curb Records.  I’m sure we’ll be hearing much more from these young artists and it’s nice to know they love classic country as we do.

Back here on dry land, the band and I are ready to hit the road for our March shows.  Starting with this weekend, we’ll be in Rosco, TX (March 7),  Arlington, TX (March 8), Hartselle, AL  (March 14) ,Pace, FL  (March 15), Washington, IN (March 22) and Lawton, OK (March 29).

Hate to do this to you but guess I’ll leave you with a few photos from the cruise. It was so much fun with Larry’s Country Dinercrew that we’re going to do an Alaskan cruise July 19-26th. Everyone says that is an event of a lifetime so sign up for that and enjoy Alaska when it’s sweltering in July.  Just go to this link for more information:

Hi Friends-  I’m out on the high seas with the Larry’s Country Diner and Country Family Reunion cruise this week. We’re heading out to St. Thomas and St. Maartan and hopefully lots of sunny weather.   After the arctic blast we’ve all had this winter, I’m looking forward to thawing out a bit.  I’ve had a few fans ask me if the occasional rocking of the ship ever bothers me and I tell them the truth – after so many years on a tour bus , a person just gets used to all that swaying motion.  Highly unlikely I would ever get sea sick !    I wish you were with us to enjoy the fun and mayhem that Larry’s crew will undoubtedly bring but maybe we can all cruise again next year.

Here are some photos from last year’s cruise :    That’s me with The Sheriff, the great Jimmy Capps  as we are about to rehearse a song

and then before the doors open to the show, you can see Nadine is watching to see just where that sound man is gonna stick that microphone cord on me. They stuck hers down the back of her frock so guess she’s thinking I’d better get equal treatment!
