What a beautiful night under the stars with friends, new and old, to help Songwriters Across Texas Television Show honor James White and his lovely wife, Annetta for their support of Texas music and musicians for the past 53 years at Broken Spoke Dancehall. Then we got to listen to the great music of Ben Rodgers and Jason James. You just can’t have a better evening…..until the next one. Please, when you can, go enjoy live music. It’s good for your soul!
Terry Gaona is the owner/operator…..Queen….of The Little Longhorn Saloon and loves the songwriters and musicians as much as we do! So, Songwriters Across Texas Television Show honored her for all she does. Unfortunately, an emergency came up that kept her from attending but, she was in our thoughts and prayers all night! And, what a night it was!! Two of the most awesome songwriters entertained us royally. David Touchton and Ella Reid are about as different as night and day with their styles of music…..David is kinda Merle Haggard and Ella is kinda Brittany Spears. BUT, they were such a complement to each other and just had a blast on stage…..which you know translates in the best way to the audience. We’re looking forward to maybe a show…..or more…..together. 🙂
Last night, Songwriters Across Texas Supper Club honored two gentlemen that have always supported the local musicians/songwriters….Joe Ables, the owner of The Saxon Pub, and Terry Boothe, founder of Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association. John Arthur Martinez was the musical guest. Glen Collins did a great job hosting. Many thanks to Marianna Marchesini and her staff for a great meal, venue, and continued support of live music. Most of all, thanks to Pitt Garrett and Tonya Benson…..another great show pulled together by you two!! 🙂
