Live from Nashville.

We’ve been down in the old stomping grounds for a bit.

Went to see the Time Jumpers at Station Inn last night. Always love those guys, have been through many permutations with them, from the old Hoot Hester and Papa John Hughey days til now.

What can you say? It’s kind of a who’s-more-stellar contest. Hard not to love front-man Kenny Sears of the permanent cowboy hat and winning smile, but I am always floored by Paul Franklin, one of the most amazing men to ever touch a pedal steel. And the humbly luminous fiddle-meister Aubrey Haney.

Oh and when we walked in I noticed there was this guy Vince Gill sitting in with them, tuning up his guitar... Rare good night.
