Hello everyone. I just got back from taping a TV show with Cookie Stoner. It will air on station http://www.jamiecooper.com/ which is (Athens, Alabama) local TV station ZTV-11 the 22nd of this month (next Wednesday) at 7:00 or 7:30 PM. We can't remember exactly what time slot it's going to be. It's a 30 minute show and I come on about half way through. I do my song and then Cookie and I talk for about four minutes. It's simulcast live if you want to see it as it's being played on TV. She calls her show Cookie Logic. I just love her. She's a force to be reckoned with.
Cookie emailed yesterday late to ask if I wanted to come and I said, “Sure.” She's promoting my song on CD baby plus the TV audience will hear it as well. We just love Cookie. We're headed to Birmingham tomorrow night for a birthday bash and she's going to be the M.C. for that.
Thanks to Cristina Lynn who's one of the hardest working most talented, helpful, unselfish writer / singer / performers I know - Patsy, Jerry and I are playing station WLIJ which is a Shelbyville TN station this Saturday at 10:00 AM. I think it's simulcast on computer as well. You can probably Google the station. It's being broadcast live from "The Caboose Cafe" in Lynchburg, Tennessee. By the way Cristina, I gave you a special thanks on the show and Cookie had nice words for you as well if you can tune in for it. I know you've done her show a couple of times.
Anyway it's all great fun and who knows what might happen with the song. Patsy, Jerry and I are playing for the Grand Ole Opry Fan Club in Gallatin, Tennessee on the 9th of January. I'm really looking forward to that because some Opry stars have attended that function from time to time. Maybe Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, or Tim McGraw might stop by. Or maybe their cousin, or personal trainer, or wife's personal trainer, or someone who has a third cousin who once used their personal trainer or maybe their kids or grandkids who once used that personal trainer or their dog or cat or pet turtle. LOL! You get the message! It doesn't cost a dime to dream; if it did, I'd be broke.
Anyway, just giving a heads up in case you want to watch the TV show or tune into station WLIJ on Saturday at 10:00 AM.
Special Notes: to "Doug Budzak" and "The Coffee Tree Books & Brew" Cookie gave me an opportunity to plug anyone I wanted, so I gave a heads up to Rockit Juice Studio and "The Coffee Tree". I even spelled R-O-C-K I-T Juice for everyone and said what a great job Doug Budzak did with the song so your studio and your name gets another great “plug” Wednesday. I told them they could probably Google for your website. I also said The Coffee Tree was a great place to try out new material and how everyone there was supportive so they will have a plug on the air as well. Last, but not least to my darling, beautiful Grand Daughters, I said hello to you on the air at the end of my spot. So, listen up. - Love Grandpa
