Just a quick recap of some previous weekends and then we will be all caught up:
Three weeks ago the wife and I finally had a chance to catch Jenny Simms and her boys live at JC Cowboys in Weatherford, along with Texas Troubadour extraordinare Curtis Grimes. Now I fully understand what the buzz was about after Jenny opened up for Loretta at the Lucky Star Casino. Jenny and the guys rocked it non-stop. They opened with Girl of a Gun, and every song that followed was better than the last. I've had Jenny and some of the guys in the studio with me, and they're always great guests, and the energy and fun from the studio translated nicely to the stage. My wife sang along the entire time and flipped when Jenny broke into a killer cover of Purple Rain that got the whole joint singing along. Curtis Grimes took to the stage with a bit of a head cold. After taking a shot of some cough medicine, he took to the mic and blew our minds. Curtis Grimes' live show was country the way country is supposed to be. On the heels of King George Strait's announcement that he will be retiring from touring, Curtis did a cover of Amarillo By Morning that I could swear was being sung by the King of Country himself. Curtis' voice is smooth enough that it entrances you, but rough enough that you believe everything he's saying. It was a killer night, and if you missed either one of these two great acts, you owe it to yourself to road trip and catch them live!
This past weekend was pretty quiet around the Hardin house. The wife and I were feeling really under the weather and decided to spend the weekend at home with Maggie, our Australian Shepard, and Annabelle, our fickle feline. This weekend was all about The Walking Dead. Two days straight of Walking Dead seasons one and two had us primed and ready for the big season three premier. Hopefully you caught it, as this season looks to be a barn burner. Rick is beginning to distance himself from Lorie, while firmly establishing his role of leader in the group. He leads everyone to the prison after discovering that the hordes of walkers have essentially cut them off in every direction. After clearing the yard at the prison the group settles in for the night, and Herschel's daughters sing Parting Glass. What made the song so special was the fact that for the first time in a long time the group has hope. The prison could mean long lasting shelter. It also brought back memories of the members of the group that we have lost over two seasons. The next morning Rick leads a small portion of the group on a push into the prison, clearing out walkers. Incase you have the episode waiting for you on DVR, I won't say which member catches a bite from a harmless looking walker, and I won't tell you about the big surprise at the end of the episode. I will however say that episode two of season three is one of my most looked forward too TV episodes of the year.
