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

Tamar Daughter of King David Her Name Means "Date Tree" or "Palm Tree"
Tamar shared her father's, David's good looks. Young and innocent, she was naive to the danger that threatened from her own family. (Her Character)....That her half brother saw her only as an object for his lust, destroying her future as a result, and that her father, the king, did nothing to protect her. (Her Sorrow).....David's daughter Tamar was a knockout. No doubt she was destined for marriage tht would strengthen the king's political alliances. Though not under lock an key, she probably live a rather protecte life. But all the precautions in the world couldn't save her from the danger that threatened from David's inner circle.
Amnon was David's heir. As the king's eldest son, he was used to getting his way. But lately he'd grown despondent. Something was bothering him, chasing away his slep, gnawing at his heart. One day, Jonadab, Amnon's cousin, asked him: "Why do you, the king's son look so haggard morning after morning? Won't you tell me?" Amnon confided in his friend, saying, "I'm in love with Tamar, my brother Absalom's sister. (Plan devised) "Go to bed and pretend to be ill," Jonadab shrewdly advised. "When your father comes to see you, say to him, "I would like my sister Tamar to come and give me something to eat. Let her prepare the food in my sight, so I may eat from her hand."

James Robert Webb is heads and shoulders above other country artists, and that isn’t just figurative either! At 6 foot 5 inches tall, the phrase holds true literally as well.
With all that height, one would have expected Webb to be pursuing some sort of athletic career, but music had a greater calling on his life. Growing up in rural Oklahoma in a small town called Kellyville, Webb quickly started experimenting with music. At 7, he began to teach himself how to play piano. In his teens, he added guitar to his instrumental repertoire. He learned both instruments by ear, giving him the skills necessary to excel at jazz music later on, becoming an Oklahoma All-State Jazz pianist in high school. He also applied his ear training to other improvisational genres such as Western swing.
In 2010, Webb began to pursue songwriting. Drawing inspiration from his favorite artists, including Garth Brooks, The Rolling Stones, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Miranda Lambert, Vince Gill and more, Webb’s music gives a modern take on traditional country. He blends the best of the music genres to create a unique country flavor.
"I listen to virtually every kind of music there is, but when it comes to country music, I am mostly moved by the traditional country music and honky tonk, as well as the vocal stylists. Garth Brooks, Ronnie Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill—these are the kinds of artists that I relate to the most. In my personal opinion, that’s what’s missing from country radio today—country music. Namely, fiddle and steel.”
We've certainly heard the phras, "It's to die for". Perhaps you can say the same for Dave's Killer Bread. The company had the best in bread. Organic, lots of grains and no high fructose corn syrup. Plenty of varieties to choose from. Looks like an excuse to create sandwiches just to eat it. Maybe man CAN live by bread alone. Gabrielle Enfield, Brand Manager at Dave’s Killer Bread will tell us all while I make a sandwich.

Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcome's Rick Elliot, a Rebel with a Country Music Cause....
Embarking on his journey of preserving the Outlaw Country crusade, Rick Elliot spent much of 2014 touring his upbeat country sound starting with the wild west of California. Armed with a fifth of whiskey and a deep mature voice far beyond his years, Rick stuns audiences from the very start.

Cody Joe started playing music at an early age, but it wasn’t until his senior year in high school that he became serious about his art. Impassioned by such country greats as George Strait, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings, Cody Joe wrote his first song, “Daddy’s Dream”, his freshman year in the dorms at Texas A&M University.
Cody Joe is a traditionalist in the sense that he loves the sound of traditional country; with a steel guitar, fiddle and good, old-fashioned story-telling songs, the way country music was when he was growing up. As a true Texan, he grew up idolizing George Strait and aspires to the lifelong career he has had in the music industry.
Cody Joe Hodges’s music has been described as “outlaw country”, with a large influence of the country greats and performers who started the genre in the late 70’s and 80’s. Cody Joe’s voice ranges from silky smooth to raspy seduction. A Cody Joe Hodges live performance is one you will not forget. He and his band always thrill, putting on a high-energy performance at every show. It is rare that you will find someone that reaches across the aisle to both the old and new generations, but Cody Joe Hodges does it every time. With a steel guitar, fiddle, stand-up bass, guitar and drums, Cody Joe’s sound is something out of the past. Be prepared to dance because his goal for every show is to fill the dance floor.
Cody Joe tries to put a positive message in every song. There is a lot of negative in this world, and when people listen to music, whether it is to escape or to be entertained, his goal is to put a grin on your face or a smile in your heart.
While Cody Joe and his band currently play a lot of bars and honky tonks, they love playing fairs, festivals and concerts where they can reach out to all ages and play for folks they wouldn’t normally reach in the bar and honky tonk scene.
