For Ever, For Always, For Certain
The easiest part of dealing with the success of my music career is that that there is no success. Or music career. Or dealing. Or easy. Or.
My kid needs to use my computer to work on her “planet report”. CLEAR HISTORY! CLEAR HISTORY! CLEAR HISTORY! CLEAR HISTORY! CLEAR HISTORY!

Everybody is still in bed and I’ve got a chance to sit and enjoy the greatness of Ryan Adams’ music….these moments are becoming fewer and far between.
Bruce and Kelly
Kelly Willis (with Bruce Robison): Not Forgotten You
Slightly obsessed with this song.
Song Premiere: Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis, “Border Radio”
Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis will celebrate Valentine’s Day a little early. After pursuing their own careers for more than fifteen years — he’s written #1 hits for George Straight and the Dixie Chicks, and she’s released a string of solo albums — they’ve banded together for Cheater’s Game, a collaborative album that comes out on February 12.
Cheater’s Game is split between original songs and rootsy covers, including tunes originally sung by Hayes Carll, Don Williams and Robert Earl Keen. One of the highlights is a breezy version of The Blasters’ “Border Radio,” where the married couple trades harmonies over acoustic guitars, lap steel, mandolin, and a ranchero-influenced chord progression.
not that there’s a chance in hell but if i was to perform at halftime i would sing every verse to choctaw bingo w/ hookers rather than kids.
