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.

https://www.13wmaz.com/article/news/local/east-dublin-singer-eg-kight-survives-dog-attack-it-was-just-so-horrific/93-518291457

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!

Goats, songs, gas pumps, Mama, Chattanooga, and Canada!

I’ve been working on so many different projects that I can hardly keep up with myself!

Of course, my pet goats get a lot of my attention every day when I’m at home.
Here’s me holding Moses, a truly precious goat.

And I’m still working on a couple of new songs, and getting set lists ready for some upcoming shows. I love being home, and I love being on the road, seeing all of you!

I’m getting ready to head out again next week to the Chattanooga area for three shows. Two of them are private, but you can come see me at the House Concert next Wednesday! Get all the details on my TOUR DATES page. Email the host to RSVP and make plans to come see me!

On August 25th my band and I will board a big jet plane, and head north to Canada for the Edmonton Blues Festival! It’s been a long time since I’ve been up there, and I’m sure looking forward to seeing Cam Hayden, and all my friends up there. They’ve got a fabulous lineup, including Victor Wainwright, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Colin Linden Trio, Toni Lynn Washington, Mike Ledbetter, Monster Mike Welch, and so many more amazing artists. If you don’t have tickets yet, ya better get ya some!

A couple of weeks ago, I was with my band at Bradfordville Blues Club in Tallahassee. We always have a great time there, and our friends out in radio land and online get to listen to the first set. That’s the next best thing to being there! Here’s a photo that Gary Anton took of all of us on stage. We were having a naturally LARJ time!

We always look forward to our shows there, and we’ll be back in January, to celebrate a couple of birthdays – Gary Anton’s and mine! Make plans now to be part of the celebration!

Last weekend I did a solo show at one of my favorite cafes, up in the north Georgia mountains – The Crimson Moon Cafe in Dahlonega.

It was great to see so many friends and family, who drove from all over the state to see me! And it’s always good to have my mama with me. Here’s a picture that Elizabeth Adams took of us. I got Mama up to sing a song with me, and everyone seemed to love it. And I love my mama! Can you tell?!?

On our way back home from Dahlonega, we headed over to one of my regular stops along the way – Murrayville. This is where I’ve gotten so many of my favorite photos over the last few years. This time, I got a couple more. See what you think.


You can see more of them on my PHOTOGRAPHY page at the link above.

I’ve got a lot to finish up before I drive up to Chattanooga next week. But I’ll be lookin’ for ya on the road!

Till then, Keep a Song in Your Heart!

HAPPY 2017! RECAP OF 2016!

My latest album is called “A New Day,” and most of you know why…

And today is a new day, the first day of a brand new year. I wanted to take some time today, to review last year, and share the things I look forward to this year. In 2016, I did some exciting things, and even marked off one of the things on my bucket list.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

– With my Blue South Band, we helped Gary Anton celebrate his birthday, along with mine, at Bradfordville Blues Club. If you haven’t been there yet, and you’re a true blues lover, you absolutely have to check it out. It’s one of the coolest venues I’ve EVER been in, and once you get a taste of the vibe there, you’ll want to keep going back.

– I spent some time in Nashville, which I hadn’t done in a while, had several co-writing sessions, and even performed in a writers round at the Commodore Club, hosted by Debi Champion. It was great to see and hear old friends, JC Ward, and Diane Gentes! It brought back a lot of memories from the old Bogie’s and Broken Spoke days.

– I performed at more house concerts, and I just have to say that I REALLY enjoy doing that kind of a show. It’s an intimate listening room environment, and I can practically reach out and touch my audience from the stage. I love the feeling of being so close to the fans, and they seem to enjoy the up-close-and-personal concerts.

– I did another singer/songwriter night with my longtime friend, Becky Hobbs, and Lucy Billings, at the Renaissance Arts Center Theatre in Kingsport. There’s something so comfortable about sharing the stage with friends and hearing them sing their own songs. I had the best seat in the house!

– And my friend, Michael Buffalo Smith invited me to do another writers round with Sonny Moorman and Russell Gulley, for a benefit for The Big House Museum. That was a fun afternoon, too, and it was for a good cause!

– One of the most exciting writers shows that I did was in my own hometown of Dublin, Georgia! I was part of the launching of a new songwriters series for ExploreGeorgia.org, celebrating “The Year of Georgia Music.” Levi Lowrey and Greg Hester joined me at the Historic Carnegie Library, and we sang our original songs for my hometown fans. Thanks to Lisa Love and Jody Jackson for putting that show together, and inviting me to be a part of it!

– I also did some shows up in Ohio, Indiana, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Mississippi. From a concert in an apple orchard, to clubs, to house concerts, to a membership kickoff event for Marcia Adams and her new Indy Blues Society, to a chapel concert series, to a theater, a museum, and a yacht club, to festivals, to private parties, to a coffee house, I had a great year! I love performing for old and new fans alike, and I’m excited about some things we’re working on for this year. We’ve got some different things on the horizon, and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

– And last year I did something I haven’t done in 20 years or more – I took a vacation, and went to Wyoming to take pictures!! I hope to knock a few more things off my bucket list this year. Stay tuned!

– Last year set a record for my photography sales! And I won more ribbons, too! I’m so thrilled that y’all like my pictures, and I’ve added some new ones to my photography page. Take a look and see what you think. And if you don’t see what you want there, that doesn’t mean that I’m sold out. I just like to change them up every so often. http://www.EGKightPhotography.com

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Coming up this year, I want you all to be watching out for the movie, “Collar,” too. Five of my songs are in it! I’ve seen a sneak preview of it, and it’s a well-written movie, and you’ll recognize some of the actors – Tom Sizemore, Rebecca DeMornay, Richard Roundtree, and David Patrick Wilson. When it comes out in theaters, be sure to go see it, and let me know what you think! Here’s a link to a brief video snippet of my songs in the movie.

.
As you can see, it was an incredibly busy year. This year I’ll be at home for a bit, working on a few secret projects. I’ll let you know when they’re almost ready to announce.

And I’ve booked some very cool gigs already, including the Edmonton Blues Festival. I’m excited about some things I’ll be doing, and we’re entertaining other offers, too. Keep an eye on my tour dates page for all the latest.

I’ll be at the IBC in Memphis next month! Who else is going?!? I hope to see you there!

And stay tuned for news on baby goats. I have six pregnant mamas, and expect to have babies any day now! Brownie’s about to pop!

brownie-pregnant-about-to-bust
May this be the first day of the best year of your life!

Love,
EG

I’ve been everywhere, man! I’ve been everywhere!

Hello Everybody!

Have I been busy lately! I’ve been traveling around the country, having a great time doing what I love – writing and playing music!

My band and I were in Montgomery, Alabama on Sunday at the Capitol Oyster Bar. It’s been quite a while since we were there and we enjoyed getting to see our friends and fans in the area. And Memphis Billy was along for the ride.

A few months ago I performed with an old friend Becky Hobbs and a new friend, Lucy Billings, at the Renaissance Theatre in Kingsport, Tennessee. We played an “in the round” songwriters night. It’s always inspiring to hear other writers songs. An “in the round” concert is when artists take turns performing their songs. I’ve always enjoyed this type of concert and I think it’s interesting for the audience to find out the thought process behind the songs. It lets them know where your ideas come from, and how a song develops.

Lucy, EG, Becky - Kingsport(LtoR: Lucy Billings, me, Becky Hobbs)

And at the end of July, I helped launch the Explore Georgia Songwriter Series at the Carnegie Library in my hometown of Dublin, Georgia! This was the first in a series of events, and I was honored to be part of the first one. Joining me was Levi Lowrey and Greg Hester. These two guys are successful writers, and I really enjoyed hearing their music, and getting to know them a little bit. Levi ended up jammin’ with me on the fiddle and we had a ball! I hope we can all work together again!

Greg, EG, Levi - Explore GA rsz(LtoR: Greg Hester, me, Levi Lowrey)

The night before that I was in Sheffield, Alabama at George’s, a beautiful venue with great sound. Thanks to Debbie Dixon and all those who came out to get their fill of the blues!

And while we’re talking about songwriters, I spend some time in Nashville again, writing with Johnny Neel and Doug Jones, and we came up with some keepers! Johnny and I, and Joanna Cotten wrote a song that’s on Shaun Murphy‘s new album. I was honored to have another song on her album, too. I hope by now you’ve heard her CD. It’s a real true blues release and Shaun really belts it out. Check it out when you can!

Recenty I also performed in another songwriters round at the Allman Brother’s Big House in Macon, Georgia with Sonny Moorman and Russell Gulley. I’d heard about them for a long time, and really enjoyed being with them. Thanks to Michael “Buffalo” Smith for letting me be a part of it.

EG, Toney Gulley, Sonny Moorman by Rick Cash(LtoR: Toney Gulley, Sonny Moorman, and me. Photo by Rick Cash.)

In mid-July I did a mini-tour in Ohio and Indiana. I performed again at one of my fave places, the Hey Hey Club in Columbus, then I did a house concert in Westerville, Ohio at the Hoover House Concert series. It was outdoors, on a lovely night, and Nancy and Roy were precious hosts. It was a magical night!

EG on stage Hoover House 071616

The next night I helped kick off the new Indy Blues Society at an event at Wolfie’s in Noblesville, Indiana. It’s a good thing to see folks have such a passion for this great music and who are willing to start a society to help keep the blues going. Marcia and Mark Adams are dedicated to growing this blues society, and I know they will. So many good things can come from being associated with the Blues Foundation. I’m just proud to be a part of it.

I’m getting ready to head up to Ohio for the Cincy Blues Festival, and I’m really looking forward to seeing a lot of friends up there. Lots of my friends are performing on the same stage! After my set, Gaye Adegbalola will do a solo set, then Andra Faye and Scott Ballentine do a set. Then Gaye will join Andra for a “Saffire Reunion” with Cheryl Renee sitting in. This will be their first reunion since Saffire – the Uppity Blues Women retired. And even though Ann Rabson won’t be there physically, I know she’ll be there in spirit. I love performing, and I love sitting back watching my friends perform, too. I can’t wait!

Blues Fest logo 2015_6_4

After the festival, I’ll be flying to Wyoming to have a whole week of learning more about my camera, taking photos, taking in the fresh air, and just being blessed by the beautiful surroundings. This trip has been on my “bucket list” for a long time. Hopefully I’ll come back with some new exciting photos.

In the next couple of months I’ll be in Chattanooga, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and Nashville.  When I’m home in between shows, I’m working on a new project that I hope will be ready in the next few months. I’ll let you know when it’s ready to show everybody.

Keep an eye on my schedule and I’ll see you somewhere along the way! Until then, keep a song in your heart!

“15 Best Albums” list, New Year’s Eve party, free download, CD sale, songs in a new movie!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you’re all getting into the Christmas spirit! “Kindness” is the word for the season. If things seem overwhelming, just smile. I don’t think the good Lord intended for us to get stressed around his birthday. Let’s just slow down and breathe, and remember that a smile goes a long way, and sometimes that’s all someone needs.

I just got the latest issue of Kudzoo magazine, and it made me smile from ear to ear! Not only was my “A New Day” album reviewed in it, but it also made the “15 Best Albums that made 2015 memorable” list! How awesome is that?!? You can read all about it here. http://www.kudzoomag.com

I’ve been one busy Songbird the last half of this year. I’ve traveled to South Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Connecticut, Kentucky, California, Tennessee, Indiana, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and back to Georgia, performing in a park, on a porch, at a festival, on the street, in a listening room, at house concerts, at an apple orchard, in a chapel, in clubs, and a theater. I love pickin’ and grinnin’ and I’ll make music anywhere!

It’s been great catching up with old friends and making new ones. That’s one of the perks of the music business.  I’ve been so blessed to meet so many wonderful people through the years playing my music, and some end up becoming dear friends.

I do a lot of solo shows, but I’m always thrilled to get to share the stage with the amazingly talented members of my Blue South Band. We performed a short set together at the Skydog 69 annual benefit concert honoring the legacy of Duane Allman. It’s always held around his birthday and the admission is cans of food which go to the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia. I was so honored to be part of it, and it was great being with my band!

I also shared the stage with the young guys of the Dirty Uncle Bob band at GABBAfest, the Georgia Allman Brothers Band Association’s annual event. It’s great to see these young players appreciating great music! Here’s a video of us doing “Southbound.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K02Go5X82FA

A couple of months ago I got a request for some of my songs for an upcoming movie starring Rebecca DeMornay, Tom Sizemore, Richard Roundtree, and David Patrick Wilson! And they selected five of them, including a couple that I co-wrote with Tom Horner! I’ll keep you posted as things develop!

EG signing sync licenses
In November I had four baby goats born. One of them, “Jazz” was shunned by his mama, but he now has a wonderful new home, and is at a goat “palace.”  He’s being pampered so much that I’m thinking we should call him “Prince Jazz.”  The other new babies are Cotton Top, Honey Boy, and Buttercup. They’re so cute, and they’re such great stress relievers. Everyone should have a pet goat! You can see all the latest pictures of my babies on the GOAT REPORT page. Here’s one of Buttercup curled up in a feed bowl.

I’m getting geared up for the holidays, and looking back over an amazing year. I’ve been a lot of places, and done a lot of things. And I’m excited to now be raising awareness for the Johns Hopkins Encephalitis Center. They are on the cutting edge of research and education, and my hope is that one day people like me will get the right diagnosis, and the best possible care, with no lingering effects. Read all about it on the ENCEPHALITIS page.

I’ll be performing on New Year’s Eve in Chattanooga at the Tropicana Room, and we’re gonna have a large time! Get your tickets on my Tour Dates page. Come on out and let’s bring in 2016 together!

We have some more upcoming dates in the works, and as soon as we can, we’ll post the on my site. So keep checking my schedule.  You never know when I might show up in your neck of the woods!

And one final thing… We’ve got a few of my older CD’s left in the warehouse, so we’ve got all of them on sale now through the end of January. I’ve got to clear some out to make room for a new one! I’ll be working on it in 2016, and I’m excited about another new venture. Get a free download of “Holdin’ On,” and get some CD’s for your collection, and to give to your friends at http://www.EGKightMusic.com/music!

Till I see you again, keep a song in your heart!

Still a kid at heart, my band was smokin’, Robert Johnson, and stocking stuffers!

Hi All,

I so hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. In the same week it was like summertime here in Georgia, but then it got cold. I enjoy this time of year so much. I guess I’m still a kid at heart.

I recently performed two solo shows in Chattanooga and it was so heartwarming to see old friends and meet several new ones. Chattanooga has been good to me and I just love playing there.

My amazing band and I recently traveled to Orlando and Lake Worth, Florida to put on some shows. Needless to say, we had a blast. Taking on a new keyboard player, Mike Harrell, has added so much to my band and has taken our show up a level. Man, oh man I had fun singing with these guys. I’m hoping to take them into the studio soon. Can’t wait!

I’m in Pine Mountain, Georgia this week to take some pictures. I have a new camera and I’m going to take some time to try and learn how to use it. Once I learn it, you better look out! I enjoy taking pictures almost as much as I enjoy my music and that’s saying a lot.

I did get some good news this week about my pictures. I found out that I got Honorable Mention in one contest and have been asked to use one of my photos for the cover of an upcoming book on the life and times of Robert Johnson! Oh, I’m so excited!

One of my newer photos - "Arches of Time"

One of my newer photos – “Arches of Time”

I’m playing a house concert this weekend in the Macon area and have a couple more coming up in January. If you’re interested in having one, don’t be afraid to ask. I love playing house concerts. I’ll also be in Dahlonega, Georgia on December 21st at the Crimson Moon Café. It’s a quant mountain town that is just beautiful, especially during the Christmas season. I hope you can come see the lights, and come to my show.

And if you need some stocking stuffers, don’t forget about my CD’s and pictures. I’ve got plenty of them!

We’ve changed the structure of my blog a bit, so now you can keep up with my schedule here. Just click on the “tour dates” tab at the top, and you’ll see all my dates. I’ve got some more tentative dates coming up, and as soon as we get them under contract, we’ll post them here. Keep checking back. And I hope to see you out on the road somewhere!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Let’s be kind to one another. You never know how just a smile can lighten someone’s day.

Until I see you, keep a song in your heart.

My photos won ribbons, Sippie’s still growing, New Blues Diva photos, and festivals coming up!

Hi All,

I’m headed out today to perform at a private party for the Chamber of Commerce and the Air Force Base. I’m really looking forward to that!

Last weekend I was performing in Jacksonville Beach, Florida at the Springing the Blues Festival, and what a great time my band and I had playing for all those blues lovers! The weather was perfect and the crowd was too. It’s a wonderful thing when you connect with your audience. It feels like magic, and it’s what keeps us “pickers” going. 

Image(with Ken Wynn)

Last month I did a show at the Crimson Moon in Dahlonega, in the north Georgia mountains. It’s always a lot of fun at that place, and the crowd and staff are always so good to me. The last weekend in March I was off to east Tennessee. I played at a great theater in Knoxville with one of my blues brothers, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson. We did some jamming and had a ball.

Then I was off to the Tropicana Room in Chattanooga, where several special friends came to be with me. My “roadies” in Ohio, Steve and Nancy Broermann were there, along with good friends from Nashville, Sunny Stephens and Patricia Childs, and very dear friends from Germany, Christa and Norbert Fuhrmann. In fact Norbert is the lead guitarist of my German band, Blue Alley. Needless to say, he and I did some jamming, and the fans seemed to really get into it. My co-writer Tom Horner was there and joined in the fun, too.

 Image(with Norbert Fuhrmann)

As you can probably tell, I’ve really been having a good time performing. It never gets old and only gets better! Thanks to all of you who come to the shows. You are the greatest!

I couldn’t wait to tell you this part too! I recently entered seven photos in a photography contest in Eatonton, Georgia for the Plaza Arts Center, and last week I took home 2 ribbons – one for second and one for third place!

You all know how much I love taking pictures. In fact, here’s my newest one called “The Blues Diva”. I have different versions of it. Which one do you like best?

 Image(Blues Diva #1.

Let me know what you think about these new photos! I’ll be waiting to hear from you!

And I couldn’t put a post on my blog without a picture of my goats! Here’s one of Sippie and Bluesie. They’re starting to eat regular food, and they couldn’t wait to get to the bucket, and they ended up turning it over!
 Image

And look how big Sippie’s getting! I love my babies!

I can’t wait to see y’all again down the road some time! Until then, keep a song in your heart!
