If the Palomino Stage is rockin', don't bother knocking, just come in and get some shade.
Chuck Mead, formerly of BR5-49, brought his solo backing band, the Grassy Knoll Boys, to the Stagecoach Festival today. He went on about 5 minutes late, following Carlene Carter, who went on 30 minutes late and played 10 minutes past her set time.
He played some of his former band's songs, such as "One Long Saturday Night" and "No Train to Memphis."
I thought he was kidding about there being no train to Memphis, but according to my Google research, it appears there is no Amtrak service in Nashville, where Mead is based.
I'm sorry I doubted you, sir.
"Hello folks and welcome to the big hillbilly show!" Mead exclaimed after "Waiting for the Axe."
He also introduced his drummer as being on beer, tequila and drums.
This is my kind of band.
In the meantime, there's a couple dancing a little too close for comfort--not salaciously, but too close to me and so spirited, the hay from the bales in the tent keeps getting kicked up onto my computer.
