Hi All,

It's so hard to believe we're already half way through September! What happened to June, July and August??? I was just gettin' settled in for summer to start and now it's nearly over. From the temperatures around here the past few days, it IS over. We've hit a new low temp record here in the Ohio Valley for this time of year. That's not the kind of records I think we sould be breaking.. heck.. there's plenty of Rap and Hip-Hop out there.. break those!

Narvel's news about his gigs in August has been posted on the site along with 2 photos of him with Grand Ole Opry star, Connie Smith who shared the stage with Narvel in one of those shows. Check it out at News From Narvel.

Narvel also reports, "I'll be singing on a show for the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH November 11th honoring Jerry Lee Lewis. Kris Kristoferson will host." That date is also Narvel's birthday!

The details about this show will be posted as soon as I get all the details. Sad part for me... before I moved, I lived only 30 miles from Cleveland and could have been there to share another birthday with Narvel, see a great show and hey... meet Kris Kristoferson! Ugh! I miss being home more than ever!

COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM TO OPEN FAMILY TRADITION:
THE HANK WILLIAMS LEGACY,
PRESENTED BY SUNTRUST IN MARCH 2008

Major New Exhibition to Trace the Legacy of Country Music's Most Iconic Figure

HankWilliams-StripedSuit.JPG (6522 bytes)NASHVILLE, Tenn., September 13, 2007 - The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's major new exhibition, Family Tradition: The Hank Williams Legacy, Presented by SunTrust, which opens on Friday, March 28, 2008, for a near two-year run, will explore the connections between country music's most iconic figure and his creative heirs - both biological and musical - and examine the ways in which American music continues to be measured by the standards Hank Williams set.

Presented with the full cooperation and assistance of the Williams family, the exhibition will use artifacts, instruments, song manuscripts, costumes, photographs, computer interactives, moving images and more to explore the connections between Hank Williams and his progeny, and his enduring impact on popular music.

Additional support is being provided by the Museum's official Family Tradition media partners: Great American Country Television Network, Cumulus Broadcasting and The Tennessean.

"In past years, the Museum has examined the life and music of Hank Williams through a major biographical exhibit and a two-CD collection of his demo recordings," said Museum Director Kyle Young. "As his heirs speak frankly about their ancestor's legacy and his impact on their lives, the Family Tradition story will take our visitors on a voyage to the spiritual and emotional core of the Williams family.

"This exhibition would not be possible without the blessing and participation of the family," he said. "They have opened their hearts to us and shared their stories and their journeys. They have also opened their homes and personal archives and shared a wealth of precious artifacts, many of which will be exhibited for the first time in Family Tradition."

Among the items never or rarely seen by the public until now are Williams family scrapbooks and correspondence; and awards, instruments and costumes belonging to Hank Williams and Hank Williams Jr., including some of the latter's first toddler-size stage costumes designed by Nudie the Rodeo Tailor.

Family Tradition will be accompanied by an ongoing series of school and family programs, including live performances, panel discussions, films, instrument demonstrations and more. The exhibit will close on December 31, 2009.

The 5,000-square-foot exhibit will follow the Museum's exhibition I Can't Stop Loving You: Ray Charles and Country Music, Sponsored by SunTrust, which closes on December 31, 2007, after a 21-month run.

The Story

The death of Hank Williams on January 1, 1953, cut short a career that, even in its brevity, placed him high among the top American artists of the twentieth century. More than a half-century after his passing, his music and image still personify what makes country music great. Just as importantly, his creative legacy reverberates far beyond country music, reaching into every facet of popular and vernacular music. His work has influenced, and continues to influence, nearly everyone who tries to write a true-to-life
song.

While his life and work had an immense impact on the world, his death hit hardest for those closest to him. It's in those direct connections-the blood kin, the business associates and the creative community who worked alongside him-that the Hank Williams legacy exerts the most weight. For those who deal every day with what he stands for and who he was, that legacy is a blessing and a burden, an inspiration and an impossible-to-equal benchmark.

More than anyone, Hank Williams Jr. embodies how other artists must reckon with the legacy his father left. As the only blood son of American music's most fabled figure, he has been asked to carry on a tradition, yet also find his own voice and speak to his own generation. For a while, at his mother Audrey's insistence, he tried to be his father's substitute rather than his artistic heir. Smothered by the image thrust upon him, he eventually stepped from this daunting shadow by following his father's more lasting legacy-that is, be true to yourself, your art and your fans by telling your own story.

Hank Williams was a man, a child of the southern working class, a product of a broken family and eventually a patriarch to his own ancestral line of restlessly creative souls. As with many poor, rural, southern folk of his generation, his life was transformed by the mobility of the automobile, the growth of electronic communication, the increasing integration of the races, and the emergence of the record industry as a force that gave impoverished Americans a new voice in the nation's culture and entertainment. Other significant social issues also influenced Williams's life and found their way into his music, including the growing independence of women after World War II and the economic prosperity and footloose nature of post-war America. More than any other songwriter, Williams' songs explicitly deal with the friction between old America's traditional Christian values and modern America's wide-open possibilities and wild temptations.

Just as Hank Williams merged the Texas honky-tonk of Ernest Tubb, the Appalachian sincerity of Roy Acuff, the gospel intensity of the hymnal and the blues moan of his mentor, Rufus "Tee Tot" Payne, his son brought together different influences from his generation. Hank Williams Jr. merged his father's honky-tonk with the southern rock of the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Charlie Daniels Band and the blues of John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins and ZZ Top. In doing so, he conjured his own distinct sound that embraced the prideful independence and long-haired social freedom and experimentation running through southern youth of that era.

Hank Williams' other heirs have each adapted to the family legacy in their own ways. From Jett Williams' loving embrace of her inheritance to Lycrecia Williams Hoover's enduring respect for her stepfather and mother, and from Hank Williams III's uncompromising declarations to Holly Williams' personal testaments and Hilary Williams' determined insights, each of them has dealt with this heritage in private and public ways.

But artists beyond the family also bear the creative legacy Hank Williams bestowed upon them; songwriters who aspire to tell an honest story in earthy language must measure themselves against him. Moreover, nearly every significant songwriter to come after Hank Williams has cited him as a primary influence. To name just a few, the list includes Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Merle Haggard, Don Henley, Harlan Howard, Alan Jackson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, John Prine, Bruce Springsteen, Ronnie Van Zant, Tom Waits and Neil Young.

Just as significantly, Hank Williams Jr. has wielded his own acute impact on contemporary country music. From the southern rock influence pounding through today's Music Row albums to the chest-beating confidence shown by modern country stars in arena and stadium concerts, Hank Williams Jr. introduced a new sound and style to a whole generation of country singers.

The measure brought to bear by the Williams legacy remains the same for all the family's creative descendants: Would Hank have done it this way?

Made possible, in part, by grants from the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission and by an agreement between the Tennessee Arts Commission and National Endowment for the Arts.

Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Country Music Hall of FameR and Museum is operated by the Country Music Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization chartered by the state of Tennessee in 1964. The Museum's mission is the preservation of the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture. With the same educational mission, the Foundation also operates CMF Records, the Museum's Frist Library and Archive, CMF Press, Historic RCA Studio B, and Hatch Show Print.

LONESTAR RETURNS TO COUNTRY MUSIC SCENE WITH STOP AT CRACKER BARREL OLD COUNTRY STORE

Exclusive holiday CD features new lead singer & eleven new songs; Cracker Barrel to sponsor tour

Lonestar_Group_Photo.JPG (10923 bytes)LEBANON, TENN. (September 12, 2007) – After years of touring and releasing platinum selling records, Lonestar has built a strong and loyal following of music fans across the country. The band is about to hit the road again, this time with a new lead singer and a new Christmas CD that's only available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations and online at crackerbarrel.com.

"It's an honor to be involved with Cracker Barrel on this project. I can't think of a better combination than Lonestar, Christmas and Cracker Barrel," said Lonestar's Keech Rainwater. "These recordings are a perfect reflection of what Lonestar has evolved into as a group of musicians."

Available in early November, this Lonestar CD, titled My Christmas List, will feature a new sound as Cody Collins joins the band as its new lead singer. From the first moment they heard Collins sing, Dean Sams, Michael Britt and Keech Rainwater believed Collins would be an outstanding addition to the band.

"Cody is such a strong singer and he brings a lot to the table with his vocal ability," said Michael Britt. "His voice has a believable quality to it that draws you in. We wanted to make sure his talent was highlighted in the best way possible and what ended up coming out still sounded like Lonestar music. It's a perfect fit."

In addition to being the exclusive home of the My Christmas List CD, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. ("Cracker Barrel") will be the presenting sponsor of Lonestar's holiday concert tour. The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Presents Lonestar's My Christmas List tour begins in November.

"Lonestar's new CD is definitely on Cracker Barrel's Christmas list," said Simon Turner, Cracker Barrel's Chief Marketing Officer. "Lonestar has created a unique product that connects Christmas, country music and our heritage. With eleven new recordings on this CD, our guests will enjoy the holidays even more as they discover and experience Lonestar's new sound with lead singer Cody Collins."

"Putting this Christmas album together was truly one of the best experiences I have had doing a record in our eleven years recording together," said Dean Sams. "We locked ourselves in my studio for a week and came up with eleven unique, moving arrangements that are guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit!"

Since forming in 1992, Lonestar has scored 17 hit singles on the Billboard chart, including ten #1 hits and has sold more than ten million records. Three of their CDs went platinum, including 1999's Lonely Grill which went triple-platinum. More success followed in 2003 when "My Front Porch Looking In" was named Billboard's "Most Played Country Song of the Year."

With the upcoming release of My Christmas List, Cracker Barrel continues to establish itself as a unique shopping destination for exclusive music. The Lonestar CD joins Cracker Barrel's list of exclusive CDs featuring Josh Turner, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Sara Evans, Amy Grant, Charlie Daniels, Songs Of The Year and the Grand Ole Opry® Live Classics series

"It is for the lost miners, their families, the rescue workers and the entire state. I will proudly join with my dear friends, Governor and Mrs. Huntsman, to honor the lives of the lost and celebrate the beautiful spirit of love and giving that is Utah."

Some of the best freestyle motocross riders in the world will also be part of the show.

A SONG FOR THE SEASON.

Autumn is on its way... my favorite time of year. It's a colorful, yet melancholy season, conducive to thoughts of home, echoes of good old times, and memories of those we loved and lost.

We are thinking of taking a trip to Celina, Tennessee, to see the leaves, which should start turning color in a few weeks, and to be with family.
Who knows when we'll get another chance?

As I write this, September 7th, 2007 is on its way out, and will gone forever in a few short minutes. One of our songs concerns this date. It's an autumn flavored song, taking us from summer's end to bleak early winter...Part of it goes like this:

"It was the seventh of September, nineteen hundred sixty nine,
95 degrees and rising, we crossed the Pennsylvania line.
We paid a judge our last ten dollars to bless us with his legal seal.
I guess that puttin' love on paper doesn't always make it real."

A song for the season, and if you care to, you can listen to it here:

Rummaging through the old steamer trunk again,
I came across this wrinkled paper bag
with my old notes in brown crayon.
It seems to fit as much today
as it did when first written.

THE NEWS.

Disease of the heart,
Prices get higher,
Porno called art,
and your Ford is on fire.

Sniffing of glue,
And food that is bad for you,
Chickens with flu,
And cows that are mad for you.

Heating oil,
Global warming,
Depleted soil,
And tropical storming.

Acid rain,
Crashing planes,
Crack cocaine,
And shooting pains

New commies and predators
Tsunamis and senators

Bombs that are nuclear,
How high the gas is,
Bombs that are "nucular",
Destruction of masses.

Air pollution, prostitution,
And how to interpret the Constitution

Kids grades,
Terrorist raids,
and AIDS

The hopeless and the hopers.
The homeless and the dopers

Take some pills,
Learn new skills,
Pay your bills,
And write your wills.
No wonder we’ve got the blues.
It’s the news.
