Hey, y’all! Got some breaking news for ya. The Thrillbillys CD, “THRILLBILLYS LIVE! At the Sunset Grille” is out, at the moment you can pick it up at live gigs, but soon we’ll have an e-purchase option for you good folks.

The Thrillbillys are still holding strong at the Sunset Grille on Thursdays, and have an unbroken string thru June and July.

Speaking of Thrillbillys, I’m proud to announce my friend and fellow Thrillbilly, David Kitchen, is a National Finalist for the Mountain Stage Newsong Songwriting Contest. Dave represents the Greater D.C. Metro area, and we will be following his progress and wish him luck.

Mountain Stage, if you don’t know, is a Public Radio Show turned TV show that features an array of artists from diverse genres. I had the pleasure of performing on their live radio show in Charleston, WV, 3 or 4 times when I played with Bill Kirchen. The players we shared the stage with included Pat Metheny, Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mtn. Boys, John Mooney, Robert Cray and Robin & Linda Williams, amongst many others, some from overseas.

Whatever the Mtn. Stage folks do it’s always first rate. Checkout the New song website: www.newsongfestival.com/contest/06_rounds_dc_rround.htm you can play the candidate songs including David’s. You may also sample his songwriting expertise by checking out the opening cut on the Thrillbilly CD,” If Love Is Blind, (I Hope I Never See You Again)”.
