trashfoto23.jpgIt's nice to be back. The camping was fabulous. I had a tan. Tan peeled. Swam everyday and encouraged people to write songs. There were some amazing people on the trip to Yosemite and we are already planning next year's event. It's getting so popular that we are going to do 2! One in Costa Rica and one in Yosemite. My friend Eric Rudiak went on the trip for his second time and ended up encouraging me to write a song based on the point of view of the guy who gets shot in Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues song. You know- the song with the line: "I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die." You might like to visit his website at I am really looking forward to August 8th at The Belly Up Tavern here in Solana Beach Califoria. A couple of The Truckee Brothers are playing with me and Cindy Lee Berryhill is on the bill as well. Umm- she rocks. Thanks for all the cool emails from people who tuned in to the XM Radio channel 50 The Loft session. I hope to see some of you on the road this next month. The painting above was created by Grady Roper. He's one of my favorite artists and resides in San Marcos texas. I heart him dearly and he's a wonderful addition to the planet. Here is my song.
