SHOWDOG/UNIVERSAL ARTIST J.T. HODGES & WRINKLED RECORD ARTIST JIMBEAU HINSON
ARE ALL SMILES AND HUGS… AFTER JIMBEAU SLAYED A 3RD & LYNDSLEY SRO CROWD
WITH LIVE VERSION OF HINSON'S NEW STRONG MEDICINE CD
J.T. Hodges and I met a few years ago and became fast friends when he and his beautiful wife Kasey rented the "Little Pink" stucco bungalow Brenda and I bought in Nashville back in 1982.
The house proved to be quite fertile... for is wasn't long before they were expecting a beautiful baby girl they eventually named Charlee Joy, after they moved on to bigger digs. Turns out the new place was just as productive and they are now the proud parents of another little bundle of love they call Baby Delta Faye.
Since Brenda and I moved out to Beaufield Ranch 20 years ago, Little Pink has been home to a lot of big names across that span of time. J.T. has everything it takes to be a SUPER star. Not only his drop dead gorgeous looks... he's got a heart of gold, a voice and a stage presence that will a not quit. I was honored that good buddies J.T., and Kasey brought manager and friends to hang out and take part in one of the best nights of my life.
Had the best band I've ever played with smoking! Paul Sholten's tasty percussion and Dave Pomeroy's lyrical bass, J.T. Corenflos' fluid guitar, Steve Sheehan's impeccable rhythm, Jimmy Nichols tickling the ivories, Ken Somerville on shadow backing vox and rhythm guitar and special guest vocalist Jason Eskridge, Greg Hanna, Greg Crowe, Marc Alan Barnette, Buffy Lawson, Etta Britt , Vicki Carrico, and Chris Hennessee, they all got up and jammed on the two encores of Hillbilly Highway and Party Crowd.
Killer dream night making music with friends. In the audience we had, Lead Singer from Oaks, Duane Allen and his wife Nora Lee, David Lee Murphy, William Lee's sons Rusty and Chris Golden with their Mom Frogene, my producer Kim Tribble and wife Patti, his business partner John and Kim Grubb flew in from Phoenix, Sage Keifer, Deborah Allen and Raymond Hicks, Frank and Beverly Feinstein from Bommerang Band, Amanda Martin, Robin Rudy and Larry Sheridan, Madam Pres. Sandy Knox and Wrinkled Staff Katie Gillon, Leighton Linning, Heleen Veerman and Stephen McCord, stage and screen actress Linda Hart from NY and LA (Tin Cup, Get Shorty, Hairspray on Broadway)... Lord the house was full and I know I'm leaving out some people but you know who you are that I love you and thank you all for your long-lived support. ( : I can always edit you in if ya stay on me long enough : )
