Fred: Wow! What a great run through Texas, the home state of JTG and the new home of Frankie G! All three shows were a blast, with both Austin and Houston selling out in advance! Holy moly! Thanks to everyone for making it out and having such a great time, especially thanks for our buddy Skip Bishop (the man who made “Jenny Says” happen at radio all those years ago) for coming to the Heights! Also, thanks to the LVVRS (great band from Lafayette, LA) for doing a lot of shows on this run with us. We got a lot of great compliments on those guys and were glad to have them. Looking very forward to hitting the midwest in a couple of weeks, especially for the make up date in St. Louis! Remember, Fred, no gumbo in the Dallas airport…
I noticed that people have been asking about Matt Jones and where he is these days. Matt decided during lockdown to focus more on his professional sound career as well as family, and he has also rejoined his old band Jimmy’s Chicken Shack, of whom everyone in Cowboy Mouth are huge fans. Seriously, go check them out when you get a chance. They are a great band and Jimmy is one of the best front men in the business! Anyway, Matt will still be playing shows with us from time to time so don’t worry, he’s still very much a part of the Cowboy Mouth family. In these crazy days, we all have to improvise from time to time.
Also, we are all very happy to have Frankie G with us (who Matt turned us onto in the first place) and I know he is having a ball as well! Keep an eye out towards the end of November as we will have a new holiday single coming out that we were all pretty proud of! See y’all out on the road soon, be good to each other and yourselves! Are you with me?
