This is my 91st post since I started writing my blog a year ago today. Since I started tracking in June, the blog has had almost 27,000 hits from 77 different countries, including Egypt, Nepal, Bolivia and Saudi Arabia. I am amazed by the international interest in American country and roots music.

There are thousands of blogs out there, so finding an audience hasn't been easy. I have benefited from links at Expecting Rain, Setting the Woods on Fire and Robert Earl Keen. com, which are all great websites. My thanks to Karl, Paul and Robert for their help.

Thanks to everyone who has taken time to read the blog and especially those who have written comments and gotten involved in the process. I hope everyone has enjoyed the reading as much as I have enjoyed the writing. As long as I can get people to listen to good music, I guess I will keep it going a little while longer.

With that in mind, here is one of my favorite songs by Robert Earl Keen. It comes from his album A Bigger Piece of Sky, which you should buy if you don't own it already.



  1. I'm still interested in hearing more about the booze and the books...

  2. Keep going, your blog is a good part of my near daily dose of good music, Bob and others this and that...
