A New Day is coming! A New Day is coming! And CD release parties are comin’ too!

Hey Everybody!

I’m so excited because I now have my new CDA NEW DAY – in my hot little hands! We’ve sent it out to radio, and the media are getting their copies as well. It will be released nationally on September 16th, and it’s already getting some great reviews!  You can read some of them under the REVIEWS tab above.

While I was in Nashville recently, I got to do something I’ve never done there before – sightseeing! I sure enjoyed soaking up so many areas of the city. And I took this photo from the pedestrian bridge. I sure love Nashville!

During that trip I also got to meet the artist who designed my last two album covers. I was thrilled to meet Cara Schneider, and she was just as genuinely sweet in person as she has been on the phone every time I’ve talked to her. Cara is the Art Director for the Nashville Opera, and she’s an incredibly inspiring designer. I’m so glad we got to visit and have some tea. Here’s a photo of us in her front yard.

I have some CD release parties coming up, and we’re gonna celebrate in a big way! We’ve confirmed one in Macon, GA on September 19th, one in Chattanooga, TN on October 4th and a couple in Ohio later on in October. Just keep an eye on my TOUR DATES, because we keep adding more!

My band and I tried some of the new songs out a few weeks ago in Tallahassee and they went over great.  The crowd seemed to love them. That sure makes a songwriter feel good. Our first set was live on the internet from Bradfordville Blues Club, and it was awesome!

And speaking of my band, we’ve FINALLY come up with the perfect name for these guys, who are like my brothers. They are now called the BLUE SOUTH BAND! We’ll be adding their photos and bios to my website, so you can know more about these amazingly talented players. I’d be lost without them, and I want you all to show ‘em some love the next time you see them! Check back soon to read their stories…

And while we were on stage at Bradfordville, we were being filmed to be part of a tourism video for Tallahassee. I think it turned out GREAT! See what you think. You’ll see us at the 2:13 markhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kguaD_P-Fts&list=UUDlZa0hPoPD3gjwRZrv9A6Q

You all know how I love to take pictures! I’ve taken some new ones recently, too, and I’ve updated my photography page.  Check it out at www.egkightphotography.com and let me know what you think.

I drove up to Hobart, IN near the end of July, and had the time of my life! It was a corporate event, for the owners of an oil company, and an apple orchard, among other businesses. I got to perform inside a huge barn, and the people I was entertaining were some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! They even took me on a golf cart tour of the apple orchard, and I sure wish my mama could have been with me. She loves apples! I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with the Luke Oil folks, and I can’t thank them enough for their hospitality. I look forward to coming back your way one day soon. Thanks to Dana, and Tom, Sr., and Ryan, and everyone else who made this event such fun!

I so appreciate all of you, and love the connection I have with you at my shows. You make me want to continue to grow as an artist, and to make people smile. Thanks for giving me the positive energy I need!

You can pre-order my album now on my website, iTunes, and CD Baby, so you have a lot of choices! I can’t wait for you to hear it! Just click on the MUSIC tab above.

I’ll be in the north Georgia Mountains this Saturday, at the Crimson Moon Café in Dahlonega. Then I have shows coming up in Indiana with Lisa Biales as the Peach Pickin’ Mamas, in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee with my Blue South Band, and as a solo in Ohio.

Keep an eye on my schedule, and I’ll be looking for you!  Until then, keep a song in your heart!

EG

About EGKight

I've made music most of my life, and I enjoy every aspect of it. I'm a roots singer, songwriter, entertainer, publisher, and producer. My musical style has been called “country-flavored southern-fried blues.” I've headlined at clubs, theaters and festivals across America and in Europe. And my songs have been recorded by artists across the genres. Even my mentor, Koko Taylor, recorded a couple of my songs, and they landed on her last two Grammy nominated albums. I've had songs on five major TV networks, and I placed five songs in a movie that's available on Amazon Prime. I love songwriting, and I love performing, and I love to see all my fans at my shows. I'll see you out there on the road!

    Love the new band name. Perfect.
    I’m so thrilled that everyone gets to hear the music I’ve been glued to since I got your new CD.
    Almost positive we’ll see you and Lisa @ Ball State on 9/30. Can’t wait.
