Fun gig

We played a gig in Muscle Shoals tonight. It's like music Mecca here in Alabama. The history and tradition here run deep.

Many of the songs you've heard and loved throughout your life were recorded here. There's a PBS special on Muscle Shoals that came out earlier this year and even though I knew the place had a rich history, I had no idea of the depth and breadth.

At any rate, we played a few hours at the The Shoals Songwriter Showcase. After our set, the stage opened up for songwriters in the audience. Almost everyone in the audience was a songwriter.

The support shown at this venue is humbling.

I hope we have the opportunity to play here again.

It rained on the drive up and only got harder as the evening wore on. By the time we loaded up to head for home, I needed water skis  on the Volvo.

Even through the rain, the autumn color was all around us.  The cold weather this week will probably take most of the color with it when it moves on toward the east.  I won't complain because it has been absolutely stunning here.

    Can't do much about the weather but rain is a good thing in moderation.
