I'm confident I'll miss all of these -- never met an opportunity I couldn't squander/blow in some way, shape or form -- but perhaps someone else will manage to make it to one of them.
Oh, and while we're not on the subject, from Sony Music Nashville:
Upcoming TV Appearances
April 21 Mary Chapin Carpenter on NBC's "Today Show"
April 27 Mary Chapin Carpenter on David Letterman
In support of Between Here And Gone, her new cd set for release on the 27th.
Also, from Emmylou.net Tour Dates:
Emmylou, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will join one another for a unique tour beginning in August in Atlanta, Georgia. Dubbing the tour "Sweet Harmony Traveling Revue," the set will be varied, featuring ensemble performances, solo numbers and, at times, instrument swapping. "Sweet Harmony Traveling Revue" will visit 14 cities on its three-week run, including New York's Central Park on August 18, and will wrap up August 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Closest show to me is the August 25th performance in beautiful(?) Cleveland, OH.
Road trip, baby.
I suppose Michelle won't let me stand on a chair front-row center while Emmylou plays, wearing a t-shirt saying DO ME, so maybe I shouldn't go with her. . .
She's an Angry Black Guy too, you know.
Do I mean Michelle or Emmylou?
