Road Journals - Vol 4 (April 2003)
April Sucked

April sucked...

Shows got canceled... which is as bad as 
life gets for me... It's like having 
Christmas canceled.

More importantly, one of nashville's 
greatest talents... tony brown... was hurt 
very badly out in Hollywood... he had a 
freak fall in a restaurant and is now in 
need of prayers and good thoughts...

for those of you who don't know, tony 
brown is the president of universal south 
records, he was the president of mca in 
Nashville and he also produced my first 
two albums along with albums by nancy 
Griffith, lyle Lovett, and steve earle who 
he discovered...

most importantly though, is the fact that 
he is one of the most open and kind 
giving people in this town... a very non-
typical record executive who allowed me 
to try anything I wanted to. He also has 
taught and continues to teach me about 
music...

he showed me how to find the parts and 
arrangements to a song by taping it with 
just a guitar and then listening to see 
what my right hand was doing without 
thinking...

he'd say "you're already playing the riff... 
just not on purpose.."

for better or worse, if you like my music 
or hate it... tony brown is a big part of 
the reason why...

he also, along with his wife Anastasia, 
throws the best parties in this town... I 
just know that he is going to be fine but 
please, ... if you pray, pray for my friend 
tony.

Thanks
