I’m recovering, and on the road again!

Hi Everybody!

A lot has happened since my last blog. I’ve been recovering from being attacked by three pitbulls.

It’s been over three months now, and I just got dismissed from my wound care doctor this week. He said I’d probably have pain from my injuries for another six months. Oh well, things are a lot better than they were, and I know in time I’ll be okay. Thanks so much to all of you who have reached out to me, sent gifts, thoughts, and prayers. You have been a real strength for me through this process.

I’ve finally been able to play some gigs. It’s been just what the doctor ordered. I’ve been playing some solo shows and have had a few trio shows. I am really enjoying my trio! Gary Porter and Ken Wynn are a joy to work with, and they always keep a watchful eye out for me. They are like family. If you haven’t heard the trio, I hope we make it to your area soon. I want everybody to hear us!

I recently went to Memphis to attend the Blues Music Awards and they were awesome! It’s always like a family reunion. Talk about hugs, I sure got a lot of them! Here’s a picture of me with (l to r) Lisa Biales, Gil Anthony, Deb Ryder, and Hurricane Ruth. We were havin’ a ball!

On my way to Memphis, I stopped by in Nashville and worked with Pat Alger. Pat has written many hit songs for various artists through the years, including “The Thunder Rolls,” “What She’s Doing Now,” and “Unanswered Prayers” for Garth Brooks. And Kathy Mattea, Hal Ketchum, and Don Williams have recorded some of his songs. I’m honored to write with him, and I’m learning so much. We’ve already written a good one, and I hope to get it out there soon!

And Jody Jackson called and asked me to play a songwriter’s show in Atlanta recently with Pat Alger and Tony Arata.  Tony wrote “The Dance” for Garth, and his songs have been recorded by some of my favorite artists, such as Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, and Delbert McClinton.

Tony and Pat were both so sweet and encouraging to me.  They’re both good ole Georgia boys, and they feel like old friends now. And I look forward to seeing them again soon.

(l to r: Tony, me, and Pat)

And another good ole Georgia boy I got to spend some time with recently is Chuck Leavell, who played on my “Southern Comfort” album, and tours with the Rolling Stones. He had a fundraising event at his farm, and he invited me up to sing with him. And a good time was had by all!

My trio and I will be performing this coming Wednesday, May 30th at the Rookery in Macon, GA, then I fly out to Ohio. I hope to see y’all at the Hey Hey in Columbus and at Memorial Hall in Cincinnati. Can’t wait to see my fans there.

I have gigs coming up soon in Tennessee and Florida. Keep an eye on my schedule. You never know where I may show up! http://www.EGKightMusic.com/tour-dates

Until then, keep a song in your heart!

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. And I placed five songs in a movie that's coming out in 2017.

    So glad you’re making progress and getting out there.
    Music truly is the best medicine.
