"There's virtue in honesty, and in intuition, and in openess, and in tough-minded decency. Those things may or may not make for fine art. In the hands, heart, and voice of Anne E. DeChant, they may, they might, and they do." -Peter Cooper, editor, Country Music Hall of Fame

Help... You can do something really cool right now!
Help a dog. Help a person. Help all of us be safer.
Purchase a 'Go Get Joe' t-shirt for $14.99 ($17.99 for XXL and XXXL) and $5.00 will be donated to Canine Performance Sciences Puppies in Prison Program. Canine Performance Sciences at Auburn University pairs puppies with inmates who assist in the training of those puppies. Using Vapor Wake Technology™, puppies are trained to detect explosive materials, in particular, those being transported bodily. The inmate training program has proven hugely successful and is now placed in 6 prisons.
One inmate who was introduced to his puppy began to cry. When asked why, he explained....He hadn't touched a dog in 40 years....
Now's your chance to help a puppy, help a person and help us all....Purchase your 'Go Get Joe' shirt now. You can choose to add to your gift by pressing the donation button below. Thank you for this most important purchase. We appreciate you!
Happy Happy Friday everyone and welcome new mailing list members! Enjoy your free download (see below) of "Like My Daddy" from my latest CD, "The Sun Coming In"
Spring touring has been great with shows in Charlotte, Vilas, Charleston and Carrboro NC. This week I'm in Alabama. Frye and I were at Moonlight on the Mountain (it really is on a mountain) on Wednesday night. What great sound in that room and Keith and Bink could not be nicer.
Thanks too to the Pike Road Library for hosting "Watermelon…
A nice gentleman from Toronto, singer/songwriter, Kirk Felix, asked me for chords to "Go Get Joe" (free download for you below) as he would like to perform it. Rather than sending him a chord chart, I made an instructional video! I decided to share it with all of you in case you'd like to learn to play the song. I also ask that if you do, you'll send me a video of you performing it. I would love to see it. And please leave your comments for the video in the comment section…
Happy weekend to all! It's 1/2 off at Goodwill today...yooo hooo!
I've got lots of you down for prizes given in last email. Many of you will get a free shot glass, $2 off any merchandise at a show and $2 off your tickets for The Music Box Supper Club show on March 26th. Tons of you wrote to get your choice. Excellent!
The winner of the "Where Am I" contest is Patti Baddour, a faithful and wonderful fan! Patti said the photo was from Toronto Ontario Canada and that is correct. Many of you guessed…
Ok, I have seen a lot of things in Nashville like Kris Kristofferson and Loretta Lynn at the Ryman and Marty Stewart walking around East Nashville. But I've also missed some things in Nashville.
This winter I missed 9" of snow there AND this past Friday, I missed this at Roberts Western World, my favorite hang on lower Broadway. Just so you know, the drummer in The Don Kelley Band in this video is A OK and Don Kelley Band has had over 100,000 hits on this video, so it's comedy not tragedy. Everything…
Nashville, you may come out of the snow globe now!
Wow, we received lots of messages (and photos) about 9"+ of snow in our home city down south. We are still up north in Canada, where amazingly, we have less snow than music city. But we understand that temperatures are rising.
Busy finalizing my spring tour. I'll visit lots of new places including some of the awesome independent radio stations playing "The Sun Coming In". Stops include, WHAY 98.3FM in Whitley City KY, WDVX…
GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome new mailing list members. Enjoy your free download of "Let It Snow" below.
I'm so grateful for a new year and new opportunities. I hope you're feeling hopeful and excited too about all we might experience.
I'd like to thank Avon Lake United Church of Christ for giving me the honor of singing at the midnight service on Christmas Eve. I just loved it. Minister, Kelly B. Brill, gives some of the wisest and most wondeful sermons. The Christmas Eve message…
