The Farewell Party Band and myself are playing the world famous GRAND OLE OPRY this Friday, March 22 . Come on out and see the show. Looks like a lot of great acts are on and we’ll have a good time. If you can’t be there in person, just listen in online at www.WSMonline.com.
Then Saturday we’ll be in Scottsburg, IN at the Ross Country Jamboree. We always have a bunch of fun there with all the Hoosiers. Looks like Indiana could win the national basketball title this year!
Take care and let’s hope winter will give it up finally. I am ready to roll into some warm weather!
Take care, Gene
Hi Friends – The band and I are in Ft. Smith, AR for tonight’s show . Just finished soundcheck and we’re now just shooting the breeze as they say. Talking about a lot of great songs and how I decide on certain songs and pass on others. You know it’s tough but usually after hearing a song, I’ll sit and try to sing it as I would do it. I have to really “hear” myself singing it. If I can’t do that, I’ll pass. Sometimes there might be a few lines written that I would never hear myself saying or occasionally, a song will be written from a point of view that is just not my point of view. If a singer’s lucky, he’s got to live with a song a very long time so it ought to be one that holds great meaning or has a melody you love or some redeeming value. Of course I always say if I’d known I’d still be singing the great song ”Farewell Party ” for all these years maybe I wouldn’t have jumped so many octaves on that ending! But then it wouldn’t be the same would it? But a song like “Farewell Party” is just a rare gift. It was written by the great songwriter Lawton Williams and the words are powerful. Several other artists had already recorded it before me but in different tempos. I just knew I was meant to record it and it certainly has become my most requested song — and it’s a song I never tire of singing. I’m glad it brings you as much pleasure as it has me all these years. I appreciate all of you that request that song and I’ll keep singing it every night for as long as the good Lord’s willing. Hope you have a great week and stay in touch, Gene
