Alex Cullum of Boots 'n' Saddles Gravely ill

I know that many of you artists and fans alike have become great friends with Alex over the years, as have I.

I'm very sad to have to be the bearer of bad news, but Alex is very ill. He was hospitalized for awhile with lung problems and called me last week. He was tired, weak and using an oxygen tank to breathe and his spirits were lower than ever. Then the other day, I got an email from a friend of his in Norway telling me that he'd gone into a coma. He has since come out of the coma and while not perky, is aware and in great pain. His friend, "G-K" is currently staying with him to tend to his needs at his home. There's not much more to tell at this point in time... I just ask for y'all to please pray for Alex's recovery.

Thanks,
Marli

Featured CD: Anchored in Love: A Tribute To June Carter Cash
Various (Artist)

Editorial Reviews / Amazon.com
Because family values and devotion were so fundamental to June Carter Cash, it was inevitable that this tribute album--produced by her son, John Carter Cash--would encompass the legacy of the Carter Family and her marriage to (and musical partnership with) Johnny Cash. The pairings that revive the June-and-Johnny duets are a mixed bag, as Willie Nelson never really meshes with Sheryl Crow on "If I Were a Carpenter," but daughter Carlene Carter and Ronnie (of Brooks and) Dunn absolutely nail "Jackson" with their rambunctious interplay. Among the other highlights, stepdaughter Rosanne Cash gives a luminous spirituality to "Wings of an Angel," while Emmylou Harris will bring a lump to every throat with the closing "Song to John," a testament to eternal love and the afterlife. As June's signature instrument, the autoharp figures prominently in many of the arrangements, including Elvis Costello's rendition of "Ring of Fire." As for June's legendary lineage, Ralph Stanley's "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," Loretta Lynn's "Wildwood Flower," and Brad Paisley's "Keep on the Sunny Side" all attest to the Carter Family's seminal influence not only on daughter June, but on country music as a whole. --Don McLeese
Product Description
This all-star tribute album was conceived and produced by John Carter Cash, the only child of Johnny and June, and features songs written by or associated with the beloved singer, and performed by an eclectic collection of family and friends such as Elvis Costello, Billy Bob Thornton, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, and more. This release will coincide with the publication of John's book, "Anchored In Love: An Intimate Portrait Of June Carter Cash". The only biography of June available, it chronicles her life from childhood to the early days of touring with the Carter Family band, her marriages before Johnny Cash, her early fame, her romance with Johnny, and the ups and downs that followed. It paints a dramatic, never-before-told portrait of struggle and success, and how the power of true love eventually overcomes all obstacles.

COUNTRY
Weird Scenes Inside the Birdhouse, Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan, 0mni/Fuse
* * ** *
Few words can prepare a listener for the music of married duo Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan.
Lysergic Hayseed Melancholy and Cowpoke Philosophyboasts a sticker on the front of the CD, but thats just part of it. After scoring a big hit in 1970 with
Tennessee Bird Walk, Jack and Misty struggled to repeat their success. The songs on this compilation date from 1973 to 1976, when the Florida duo knew the charts were behind them but music wasn
t. While songs such as Cows and The Cockroach Stomp continue their novelty vein, experience has undoubtedly taught them how quickly a joke grows tired, so along with the black humour and wry wordplay comes some fantastically catchy electric country music. With lush string accompaniment, smooth keyboards and gospel harmonies, Jack and Misty reveal themselves to be genre-benders, effortlessly marrying doo-wop with square dance or slide guitar with disco. Eccentric and accomplished, entertaining and subversive, this is a delicious 70s time capsule, confirming that no one has sounded quite like Jack and Misty.

Drums were exceptional with Chuck "Popcorn" Louden, Danny Cochran and Randy McAllister taking a turn. Randy's background vocalists were Benita Arterberry-Burns and Angie McWhirter.

Hi ,

KenOvercast.jpg (8959 bytes)I hope you
re having a great summer. Weve got our June drawing results in for the monthly
giveaway, and Beth Aisenbrey of New Town, North Dakota is the cowgirl of the month this time. Beth is going to find a whole passel of stuff in her mailbox. Here
s what were sending her:

1. A complimentary subscription to an entire year of American Cowboy Magazine. 2. An autographed copy of Honky Tonk Town by Montana author and historian, Gary A. Wilson. 3. A great CD of some of the best cowboy poetry you

Volume II.
4. A wonderful CD of cowboy gospel music entitled The Glory Trail by Wylie Gustafson. 5. A personalized autographed copy of Yesterday
s Yarns. One of our books of knee slappincowboy stories.

Here
s where you can read all about it and get your own copy: http://www.kenovercast.com/Book/yesterdaysyarns.html
It
s been a busy summer for us so far; both on the ranch and on the road. Sometimes theres just not enough of us to go around. Life sure isnt boring, though. We were part of the 4th of July celebration in Lambert, Montana. Lambert is a cozy little rural town in eastern Montana. The country folks from miles around came to town for the big day. Now thats my kind of people. It was a great show, and they even had a B1 Bomber fly-by.

We
re headed up into Saskatchewan in a few days for the Sandy Creek Gospel Jamboree. You sure need to put that one on the calendar if theres any way you can make it. lots of great gospel music from a whole bunch of different groups. Ill be helping with the MC stuff again.

I
ve got to run, and I know youve got things to do, but before you go heres a little sneak peek at our book Yesterdays Yarns. This is Chapter 44.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Yesterday

Chapter 44
Lonesome Coulee Syndrome
Copyright 2007 Ken Overcast

The custom of coverin
the girls up with a veil like they do in the Middle East is something that Ive been giving a little thought. Being an avid appreciator of the exquisite form and accoutrements of the fairer sex, the practice seems to me like a real travesty. After all, lookinat pretty girls is about all the entertainment a poor boy like me can afford. I think the custom must have been started by some poor Arabian cowboy with a whole tent full of ugly daughters. If you happen to be a poor olDad, and your girls are good lookinthere isnt any problem. Hormones beinwhat they are, youll have em married off in no time. On the other hand if youve got a few bucks and the daughters are a little on the plain side, there still isnt any hitch. Money just seems to have a way of making them a lot prettier. A poor old man with ugly daughters is a bad combination. hes just up the
creek.

He and his not too gorgeous girls are really the only ones to benefit from this veil deal. Just think of the possibilities. If you
re horse trader enough, you can tell all the young suitors that that these gals are really hot stuff. Theyre even better lookinthan their Mother, and boy shes somethin.Of course she has a veil on too, so the poor victim doesnt know shes so ugly shed have to sneak up on a glass of water.

After the marriage, it
s too late. A deal is a deal.The new groom sure isnt apt to tell the whole world hes just been slickered. In fact Im certain, knowinthe male mind as I do, that hed be bragginup his new prize, and probably even telling his single buddies, Yea, and the Old Man says that all those girls are even better lookinthan their Mother, and he says shes really somethin. Theres a couple more sisters over there. you better check into it before someone else snatches em up.After all, what are friends for? Misery loves company, you know. Mail order brides used to be sort of like that out West. Before telephones and pictures, neither party really knew just what kind of a deal they were getting into. There have been a lot of those kinds of arrangements through the years, but the scene has all changed now. These new computer matches give everyone a little better shot. You can talk to them on the phone and look at pictures, and assuming everyone is tellinthe truth, youve got a little more information available to make an intelligent decision.

That sure doesn
t mean that everyone always uses their head when they make the choice, though. You take Bart Larson for instance. He and his new honey have stayed together for almost four years now, but theyve got to be about the most mismatched pair I ever saw. Bart was sufferinfrom what is known in these parts as Lonesome Coulee Syndrome. Its a medical condition that only happens to bachelors that spend several years dointheir own cookin, washintheir own socks, and sleepinall alone. I guess its really bad stuff, and there just doesnt seem to be any cure.
Well, Bart got it. He was gettin
desperate. Somehow he got hooked up with this gal from California. He shouldve smelled a rat. Shes about fifteen years younger than he is (which aint all that bad), but shes one of those New Age meditatintypes that smokes roll-yer-owns. She grows the makinsout behind the house, so Bart didnt think too much about that, but he should have been suspicious when she only went by one name. Moonbeamdidnt even > have any last name, and to make things even worse she was a Democrat.

All those attributes in themselves wouldn
t be so bad, except that Bart is a tee-totalinNorwegian Lutheran that never voted for anyone that wasnt a Republican. Theyre as different as night and day, but after Bart drove the two hundred miles to get her off the plane, she looked so good in her jeans that he thought maybe he could overlook all the little things. Lonesome Coulee Syndrome strikes again.

They stopped off in town and got hitched right up and Bart and Moonbeam headed out to the ranch. She settled right in to the rural routine, and because they live at the end of the road, her runnin
around all summer in the buff didnt seem to bother the neighbors at all.

Politics seemed to be their biggest difference. Moonbeam was good with the animals, and had a bucket calf that was always running around the yard. You know how they can be. He was constantly tryin
to get in the house and always seemed to
need feeding.

That durn calf must be a Democrat,quipped Bart one morning. Looky there, hes always lookinfor a handout.

No, I think hes definitely a Republican,answered Moonbeam, taking a long drag off her roll-yer-own. Just look at that pot belly.

It was a constant battle, with each party bringing up the bucket calfs most undesirable traits and blaming them on his adverse political connections. It all came to a head one summer day when the poor little orphan came up on the porch and started buttinon the screen door.

You know, I think youre right,Bart said thoughtfully gazinthrough the screen. That poor little bugger must be a Republican.
Moonbeam perked right up, baskinin her apparent victory, when her hubby continued, Hed never qualify for beina Democratic
President
. the durn thing s a steer.

Keep Smilin’……
and dont forget to check yer cinch.
