Sunday morning is coming down over here in Hip Donelson and after waking up the neighbors by making a smoothie, I have now sat down to recap all of the fun we had in our two hour time block on WXNA last night.
On my way to The Sutler Saloon to talk with Tawnya Reynolds about her latest record, 8 Tracks, I was listening to the album for the fourth or fifth time in my car. Tawnya’s straight-forward brand of country songwriting pumped out of the speakers of my silver Dodge Grand Caravan and caught me feeling a little nostalgic for my time growing up in the Southwest.
Bruce Springsteen does not cancel shows.
Some shows might get postponed, sure. Weather takes a turn for the worse, tragedy strikes, or-- for some reason-- God doesn’t want to snag a free nosebleed ticket to a Bruce Springsteen concert that night. For anyone else who has had a touring career chronicling more than forty years, these things are normal. Not for Bruce Springsteen.
