Re: DBT Quarantine Livestreams

Anyone know if these are livestream-only or if they'll be archived on the site? I'd like to see both, but not sure if I can do it in real time.

Re: New Letter From Patterson 1/18/2020

Thanks for this, Patterson. I read it after my turn rocking our little one who’s running a fever this evening. I’m glad she’s going to grow up with your music. See you at Homecoming.

Re: Homecoming Announcement?

I was thinking about this last night when I couldn't sleep (sad, yes) and I wonder if they're going to tie the Homecoming announcement into the new album announcement. If it's still coming out in January, this is probably about then the pre-release publicity would start gearing up with pre-orders, ...

Re: Fox Theatre, Atlanta 9/13

I would have completely, 100% lost my shit during Battleship Chains. That has always been one of those irresistible tunes that I can't listen to and not scream the lyrics. That's exactly what happened to me. As soon as Rick Richards walked onstage, I knew that's where they were going. My friend who...

I got a shipment notification a couple days after my book arrived. The book is fantastic, btw. I'm really glad a second run happened. I usually make it to one night of Homecoming.

Re: The Highwomen

The third Highwaymen album is where it all finally came together. That one's just flat-out good from start to finish.

Back to the topic at hand, I like everything I've heard from The Highwomen so far and I'm looking forward to the record. I'm also a big fan of puns, so I'm all for the name.

Bought tickets for Friday night, but if everything goes according to schedule, we should have a one-month old around that time. Actually being able to go is a whole different mountain that I'll see if I can climb as the day approaches.
