What a special night it was when Songwriters Across Texas Supper Club honored Dallas Wayne at Hill’s Cafe. With Mike Blakely and Bo Porter treating us to their songs, it was magical. In Dallas’ acceptance speech, he spoke about how genuine songwriters write stories about their life….what they know….what they’ve experienced. He’s right, of course. Mike and Bo showed us that by telling us the story behind the songs they sang. Dallas even got up and told one of his own. 🙂
One guest, Charlie Bishop, described the night best when he said, “Flawless evening. This could not have been a better show of warmth and true admiration if Hills’ had pulled back the tables and built a camp fire in the floor.”
Please try to make it out to support live music….especially the songwriters. They’re the unsung heroes of every song we’ve ever loved.
