Meet Me at The Barn Dance
I'm not working this weekend... how odd. We decided to go to Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance Weekend last night, and it was so much fun, we're going back today. Last night was Songwriter Night - with a barn full of songwriters you never heard of, singing the songs they'd written that you've heard plenty of. These are the guys (mostly guys) behind the hits. I'm not a big country music fan, but I am a huge fan of real people doing what they do and making us all happy in the process. If you live anywhere near Taos, come on up today and meet us there! If you live far, far away, plan to come next year. Bring your boots. Your feet will want to scoot, even if you're a rocker! This picture is at the end of the evening, when all the songwriters got on stage to sing Drift Away, with Mentor Williams (he wrote it), Lynne Anderson, and a bunch of others. Very cool. That particular song has been recorded over 200 times. Now that's impressive.
