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 “Wherever You Are,” a great song about special people, and we 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.

And another good ole Georgia boy I got to spend some time with recently is Chuck Leavell, whom I’ve know for many years. He 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. We had so much fun, and a good time was had by all!!

I have lots of fun gigs coming up. So 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!

Unique airport show in Chattanooga, Georgia shows with German band, Blue Alley

Hello Everyone!

My band and I have been busy lately playing some great festivals, and last month, we even got to play one in Georgia!  The Savannah Jazz Festival was a lot of fun, and it was good to see some old friends there.

We just got back a couple of days ago from playing the Daytona Blues Festival and we had a ball there. A special THANKS to all the folks who came to support us at these festivals and for all the kindness shown to us by the festival staff. We love playing for you all!

Last month I submitted several of my photographs at the Georgia National Fair and I ended up winning FOUR ribbons!  I received two first place ribbons, and a third and fifth place.  I’m so excited about my photography, and winning more ribbons! Next to music, I love taking pictures!

"Goats at the Gate" won a First Place ribbon

“A Gate of Goats” won a First Place ribbon

"Old Man" won a First Place ribbon

“Lines of Time” won a First Place ribbon

I have a very unique show coming up this Saturday at the airport in Chattanooga.  It’s a fundraiser for the Moccasin Flying Club, which supports several different charities. There will be a drawing for a free “discovery/sightseeing flight”, and attendees will have the chance to tour a private plane. It all sounds like fun, so come on out and join us!

Next week, I’ll be joining Norbert Fuhrmann and his German band, Blue Alley for several dates.  For five years I toured with them in Germany, but this is the first time they’ve been in the states to play some shows. I’m looking forward to joining them on stage in Georgia, and I can’t wait to see my German friends again!

A lot of you often ask about my goats and I wanted you to know they are doing fine. My little boys are turning in to quite the handsome young billys. They already have the nannys looking at them! I sure enjoy my goats. They’re good company, and lift my spirits, no matter what’s going on. I just hope the rattlesnake stays away from them!

That’s all for now. My upcoming schedule is below. Come see me when you can. And until next time, keep a song in your heart!
