My new children’s book!!

Hey everybody!

I don’t remember the last time I was THIS excited!! I’ve been working for the last year or so on a project, and it’s finally come together!

You know how much I love my goats, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to share them with the world. And now, with my new book, I can!!

This is a children’s picture book, but it has good advice for kids of all ages!

It features a lot of my kids that you already know, like Sippie, Moses, Cotton Top, and Sweetie. And I can’t wait for y’all to see it! I hope it’ll put a smile on your face!

“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.”

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!

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!

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!
