Message:  Larry, Roy, and I are in the middle of doing just that. Some of it is somewhat secret but these will be the best produced programs we've ever had. Larry has worked months on the talent lineup. He and Gale are true professionals with hearts full of kindness and music.

The sound will be as good as it gets thanks to their expertise PLUS a representative from Bose will be there.

The one thing that amazed me when I met Mickey and others here is how many wonderful singers and songwriters people never get to hear. You will be seeing and hearing those you already know but also you will discovering somr great people. There are those who were in Nashville when Mickey was and will share some of those stories. There will be some new talents who are newly inspired by Mickey's music.

Paul Colby is 80 years old and ran "The Bitter End" both in New York and L.A. Not only will he have stories about Mickey but EVERYBODY who was ANYBODY especially in the folk and acoustic world performed there.

Waylon Payne will be there and we hope to get him on stage as an interview as well as a performer. His growing up must have a hundred stories. I, for one, would love to hear about shooting "Walk The Line" plus he has a couple of new projects.

I will let Roy and Larry tease you more but there are a lot of surprises and don't forget it's the world premiere of "Kacey Jones Sinns Mickey Newbury".

See you there.
