  1. Anyone who is a Jimmy fan should find his or her way to Denton. His songs and that place just go together. He always plays his best stuff up there and he really gets into it.

  2. um, look at song 4...are you kidding me?

  3. Another great show and at a good venue. Being a Tuesday night, it wasn't crowded and that lent to a more intimate evening. Hellhounds and Fine Leather Truck back to back were both smoking. Even the elected "secretary" of the show got to hear both of the tunes he and his buddy asked for OVER and OVER, Shamrock Bound and C-Love. I'm excited for the band and their nomination for Song of the Year (Country Love) at the Americana Music Association Awards. Kev said they wanted to "bring that award back to Texas and shoot it out of a cannon" or something close to that. Can't wait until they are back in NTX, but I guess I'm going to have to.
