Would you please post more writing on your blog? I just love it. Also, who is that great dog in your photo here? Thanks! From a family of fans in Pittsburgh

Hi Jolene:

Slaid doesn't do much blog writing...spends most writing time on songs, but I'll pass along your request.

The dog in the photo is our sweet gal, Huddie who we were lucky to have for 16 years.

Hope you make it to a show soon!

Q

We lost Bill Morrissey last year - did you ever play together or discuss plans for a recording project?

Slaid performed at a festival with Bill. They did a workshop together as an "in the round" with the theme being The Saddest Song I Ever Heard. Slaid said Bill won hands down with a song about his dog.

Atlanta is an awfully nice place. Tons of displaced Texans here. Heck, Kinky Friedman filled a venue! Come see us, brother.

Slaid plays Eddie's Attic in Decatur almost yearly...he has a tentative date in September. Keep your eyes on www.slaid.com/blog1/tour for all of Slaid's tour dates.

Q

Karen,What motivated Slaid to write/perform "Working Stiff"? It hits home for a schlep like me. (Sad as that is) It's great when a song makes you THINK of whiskey without referencing whiskey...

Melvern Taylor wrote the song "Working Stiff". Slaid saw Melvern perform it and really liked it, so he decided to record it on his album of all covers of friends songs "Unsung".

How soon can we expect your new greatest hit "I love you more then Texas" to become available on CD? LOL. Saw you at the Mucky Duck and it was great!

We're hoping that Slaid will record that song soon and we'll release as a single.

Thanks!
