The Departed’s acoustic album.

I think I confirmed some good news for fans of the Departed. It looks like Seth James, and Cody Canada are going to be recording an acoustic album on July 27th at the Third Coast Studios in Port Aransas Texas.

Things are apparently still in the early stages, but Save The Date and keep your heads up for an official announcement, there will only be a limited amount of tickets available!

Is Bri contributing to the delinquency of a minor? 

Around 1:30 am on this past Monday morning my phone went haywire after a couple of pictures of Bri Bagwell and a dude I didn’t even know until it was quickly pointed out was a one Johnny Manziel, Heisman Trophy winner popped up online.

I had my people call the Bagwell people and I can/will confirm that these two are/were “canoodling” but I am not allowed to confirm that he asked her on a date or when or where it will be. Maybe he just asked her go and buy him some beer. Isn’t he like 15?

Annie Out?

Everyone’s calling me about the Pistol Annies, who have changed all of their booked gig dates to JUST Miranda Lambert dates.


Did they split the sheets?

Honestly, I have no idea. For now I am going to pretend I am not hearing it. I can’t imagine that being the case, especially since they just put out the new album — which is AWESOME. Maybe there is just some legal contract crap going down, again, hell if I know. I wish I did. Maybe they are just keeping everything “Hush, Hush” — see what I did there?

Listen to your favorite Texas and Red Dirt artists and bands nonstop right now
