Hi Slaid. Heard your performance on KUTX earlier. I was listening to Texas Love Song and when I heard you say Bellaire, I thought I probably misunderstood the lyric. I grew up in Bellaire. How did you come to name that teeny tiny town surrounded by megalopolis Houston in this song? Just curious.
Seemed like a classy place!
I used to listen to you play at lunchtime at a park in Portland Maine 20+ years ago. I still have a cassette of Life's Other Side, and was wondering if you have any CDs of this album. I'd love to listen in the car, but I don't think any of the cars have cassette players anymore!Slaid Cleaves responded on 06/17/2013 Next question
Thanks for a great show again! As I told you at the show "God's Own Yodeler" is one of the prettiest and most thoughtful songs I've ever heard. The rest of the album is also one of your best. Great article in the paper and good luck at the cd release tonight. Hope to see you soon. Mike (and Wendy) (p.s. still practicing yodeling in the car....where it belongs....)Slaid Cleaves responded on 06/19/2013
