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 Earle....so, 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!!!!
