Routes & Branches 4/27/13

I started today's show with a tune by George Jones who passed away yesterday. I was not a big Jones fan growing up, but as I have programed this radio show I realized what an influence he was on so many of the artists I do play, so I had to get a greatest hits CD when I saw it in the sale bin at my local record shop. For those who are  not familiar with KRVM, we have another show on Saturday mornings called 'Country Clasics' hosted by my good friend Johnny Ethridge who had a great show this morning featuring Jones' music.

So, with Willie Nelson celebrating his 80th trip around the sun this week I decided to honor him as the feature artist of my show. Willie is one of the musicians I grew up listening to and I still admire today. I have enjoyed his shows every time he has stopped here in Eugene. He is so supportive of younger musicians and family. Listening to his most recent CD, I was most impressed by Willie's lead guitar work on Trigger which is as good as it ever gets. Keep on Rockin' Willie!!!
