Working on the new album! Adding new tour dates!

I can’t wait for y’all to hear my new album!!

I’ve been working hard with my trio in the studio on the new music, and we’re already booking dates into next year, and some will be CD release parties. We’re looking at a tentative street date in March, so keep an eye on my Tour Dates page to watch for shows in your area.

We’ll be releasing a single soon, so watch for news about that, too. We’ll announce things on my facebook music page, so be sure to hop over today and “like” that page, so you can stay up-to-date on all this exciting stuff going on.

I’ve had a blast performing a lot of shows this year so far. I’ve been on stage in many different states and various venues, and I’ve gotten to do repeat shows at some of my favorite places, because they keep asking me back!

I’ve been to the Songbirds Guitar Museum in Chattanooga, the Vineville Music and the Arts series in Macon, Bradfordville Blues Club in Tallahassee, the Hey Hey Bar & Grill in Columbus, the Crimson Moon, the Tunes by the Tracks concert series, WMOT’s Finally Friday show in Nashville, several summer concert series, a coffee house, a garden club, an apple orchard, a Blues Society event, a yacht club, an auditorium, house concerts, and several private events. I’m just takin’ my shows everywhere, letting the fans soak up all the blues/roots/americana/R&B music I can toss at them!

Along the way, my fans are so good to me, showering me with love, and lots of Lay’s potato chips! Look what they did at a recent house concert in Knoxville!

I love my fans. I love my music. And I love my life. I’m so blessed…

Till I see you out there on the road, Keep a song in your heart!

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.

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

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!
