Steve comes back to Minnesota!

It's been a long while since I last posted...Steve Earle was at a concert at the Minnesota Zoo, they have a great amphatheater, but now that there's 8 inches of snow on the ground, that series is shut down for the season.  He was, of course, incredible, but he always is for me.  I talked to him after the show, gave him a gift for their baby John Henry, and left high as a kite...but, no dope involved.

A Long Time...

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted about Steve, his tour hasn't gotten him back to Minneapolis, but we hope it will soon! He and his wife, Allison Moorer, became the proud parents of little John Henry this Spring. We were all so happy for them both, what wonderful bedtime songs that baby must hear!

We had tickets for Justin Townes Earle's stop in Minneapolis in October. Unfortunately, the rest of his tour has been cancelled while Justin is in rehab. Those of us who love him are praying he finds his way back, staying sober is a long hard road, I know it myself as I have been clean nearly four years. There have been some times, under medical supervision, I've used Vicodin for my chronic pain problems, but things are pretty clean now. Everyday is a struggle while you are trying to stay clean. I know that.

Blessings to all of you as we enter the end of the another year!!

I can't beive it's ben been so many months since i last posted on this blog...nothing about Steve has held me back, saw him twice on the Townes tour and was able to see Joe Pug twice since I saw him with Steve summer 2008 in dear friend and I are going to see Justin Townes Earle andJog Pug this week in St. Paul, maybe I will have some people to post then, they are both incredible...

And Allison and Steve Waiting for little John Henry to arrive! Such a special time! We all want to wish them the best of luck and God bless your beautiful little son. Get ready for some long nights, but they go by so quickly. Now our three babies are 21k 18 and 14 and three living in the arms of the Grandmother who weren't able to stay long with us.

We love you both, Allison "Crows" is beautiful, and Steve,. well you know you have been my hero since way back in the Texas Days...

Meeting Steve in Texas!!!

Well, here's the picture of the century...for me anyway......getting to meet Steve Earle after his show in New Braunsfels, Texas.....a great night!!

Long no time see....

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I posted to this blog.....well, sorry....long story and I'm sure folks have other things to do.....

We just got back to Minneapolis after spending two weeks in Texas with my sister and her husband and were able to see Steve on his Townes tour. It was, of course, incredible. It was held at an amphitheater in New Braunsfels, Texas, actually not very far from where Steve grew up (Shertz, Texas), hotter than a Laredo whore, dusty and bugs the size of Buicks everywhere....Steve swatted at them and crunched them under his boots and gave his usual $500 worth of music for a $28.00 ticket. We were really close to the stage and I got to meet him afterwards, talked for about 45 seconds and played with Blue, his blue tick healer who travels with him on the bus. It was, for me, another night of magic....I'm going to be able to see him again on July 23rd here in Minneapolis, never can see too much of Steve, I'm going to post a few pictures here and wish you all the best and hope you, too, are able to catch Steve on this Townes tour!!!!
