In Merle Haggard: The Running Kind, DAVID CANTWELL takes us on a revelatory journey through Haggard’s music and the life and times out of which it came. Taking in the entire breadth of the Hag’s career, David focuses especially on the 1960s and 1970s when Haggard created much of his best-known and most influential work. Listening closely to a masterpiece-crowded catalogue (including such songs as Today I Started Loving You Again, Okie from Muskogee, Sing Me Back Home, Mama Tried, Working Man Blues, and If We Make It through December, among many others), David Cantwell explores the fascinating contradictions - the desire for freedom in the face of limits set by the world or self-imposed, most of all - that define not only Haggard’s music and persona but the very heart of Country music. This book is published by the University of Texas Press as part of their American Music Series. Order the book from them here: http://utpress.utexas.edu/index.php/books/canmep
Music critic and longtime Haggard fan, DAVID CANTWELL is also the co-author of the acclaimed Heartaches By The Number: Country Music's 500 Greatest Singles, and his work has appeared in the Oxford American, Salon and No Depression, among other publications. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.

Elaine Joyce Singer
Elaine was born in Chattanooga and raised in Clarkesville , Tennessee not far from Nashville and the Grand ‘Ole Opry. Together with mom and dad, Elaine and her 7 brothers and sisters all shared a great love for music. All could sing and several could also write songs and play musical instruments. Even as a small child Elaine's youngest brother Billy Joe would sit for hours watching and listening to some of the great musicians to pass through Clarksville. Evenings were spent on the porch of their home and as kids they would find something to make a noise with. That noise blended into some pretty good music .Elaines sister Dorothy was referred to as the young Kitty Wells and older sister Fran was labeled as female Marty Robbins. Brother Johnny sounded like Merle Haggard. Brother Jimmy was a mean hot harmonica player and could sing. Ron a guitar player/singer. Herby was a drummer/singer. Elaine was the shy one and the last one to take up music and shoot for a career in the entertainment field.Elaine gave her life to the Lord at the tender age of 7 when attending a big Baptist Church in San Antonio Texas where a friend had taken her.
You may not recognize the name Craig A. Meyer, but you'll certainly know Elton John....Sir, Elton John, my mistake. Craig performs tribute concerts as Elton. An upcoming concert will be taking place this August at Queens Theatre (in the Park). We will talk do him about his career and why he chose Elton.
Perhaps he'll be sitting at his piano when we speak with him.
James Robert Webb is a genuine country boy from Kellyville, Oklahoma who found a love of music before he learned to walk. You never know what instrument James may play live, but you can be sure that his voice will captivate you with a voice that is powerful, tender and uniquely country. Influenced by the great Oklahoma vocalists Garth Brooks, Ronnie Dunn and Vince Gill, Webb has a flair for traditional country with a modern bent. When it comes to country music, Webb's influences lie along the traditional side with modern influences. "I grew up listening to the great vocalists-like Jones, Haggard, Twitty, Rogers, Nelson, and Cash. When the new traditionalists came along like Strait, Garth, Randy Travis--it was the best of both worlds. I fell in love with those meaningful, deep ballads like Unanswered Prayers and Diggin' Up Bones and got to rock out to honky tonk tunes like Hard Workin' Man and Chattahoochie." This mixture of influences is clear in his live show as well as his recordings. Born This Day, the first album release on his fledgling indie label, Bison Creek Records, had two singles on country radio. The first single was the title track, cowritten by Webb, a Christian country Christmas song that saw airplay in 30 US markets and charted #12 on the European Hotdisk chart. His follow up, "Long Hot Winter" peaked at #65 on the US national Music Row Chart.
