“Who Said You Could Do That?” with guest Jack Ingram
Stateside at the Paramount
Mr Ingram and I go way back, which is perfect because I know things that will make this evening interesting.
“Who Said You Could Do That?” is a show where I talk with artists and musicians about what they do, why they do it, and how they got where they are today
Jack will also be playing a few songs. If he’s lucky, I’ll play as well.
Please check the Paramount Theater’s vax and mask protocols!
Tickets and info
Writing a song with somebody connects you like glue.
You sit in a room and spill your soul, tell each other secrets that you can’t, or won’t, confess in any other setting.
You find the poetry that hangs around the edges of a life,
Sing about the beauty, the darkness, what’s lost and found.
Together, you put it all into a rhyme, a melody,
Sing it a couple of times, make a recording.
It might be that no one ever hears it, might turn out to be a hit.
Regardless, at the end of the day, you have something that wasn’t there before, something you couldn’t have made without each other.
There’s a connection that comes from doing this.
The song may not last, but that link does.
I’m grateful to have had the chance to write with both of these gents, Radney Foster and Jack Ingram.
The songs are usually pretty good, but the hang is relentlessly fantastic.
