This last week was a fun week of shows with some great artists. I started the week off with my weekly show at Dirty's in Stillwater on Monday with Brandon Johnson and Sam Caire! It turned out to be a really fun show. If you weren't there, you missed a good one. Fun shows like that always seem to go way too fast. Before I knew it, it was already closing time. If you get a chance, check out Brandon Johnson, he's just getting started in the Red Dirt scene but is already showing signs of being a very talented singer-songwriter. Of course, I always love it when my good friend Sam Caire sits in with me. He adds so much to my show with his guitar work and vocals. He did some guitar work and vocals on my cd too, and absolutely nailed it. I can't wait for you guys to hear it! Not to mention a co-write on a song too.
Thursday I played at JC Cowboys in Weatherford with Chad Sullins & Britni Hoover. Chad and I have played several shows together, and every time I hear him he just gets better and better. We have plans to play many more acoustic shows together so stay tuned. Also go out and get his CD "Uphill Battle", there are a lot of great songs on that one. Chad will also be releasing an acoustic ep this December! I first heard Britni when I played the Haiti benefit at Cains in Tulsa earlier this year. I was truly blown away! Not only does she have an amazing voice, but her songwriting is top notch! Just absolutely beautiful tunes. We had a short set at the Haiti benefit so it was nice to play a full show with her and hear more of her songs as well as her take on several covers. I was very impressed.
So not only was it a great week of shows, but I was able to spend the weekend hanging with friends in Dallas on Saturday and celebrate a great Oklahoma State win over Texas Tech!
This next week I look forward to acoustic shows at Dirty's in Stillwater on Monday, Bin 73 in OKC on Thursday, and Red Dirt Saloon in Edmond on Friday. Then on Saturday I get to stay home in Stillwater and enjoy OSU Homecoming against Nebraska! Really looking forward to seeing the Cowboys continue to mature and play well against better opponents. OSU is a six point underdog as of today, but I'm not sure Nebraska will be able to stop the OSU offense enough, and I'd like to see how the OSU defense can stop the run and force Nebraska to throw the ball. Key to me is the O-line protecting Weeden and producing running lanes, and on defense getting a good rush with your front 4 while keeping Martinez contained. Ok, enough football analysis. Haha! We'll see ya at a show this week!
