Thursday night, January 14, 2016, I was honored and inducted in the Songwiriters Team Legends Hall of Fame.
Thank you Texas Music Association and Austin Songwriters Group and especially Lee Duffy for creating this event and for making me a part of the inaguaral year of the awards.
I was inducted along with a lot of old friends from back in the day in the austin music scene, like Gary P. Nunn, Bob Livingston, Stephen Doster, Craig Hillis, Bill Browder, Dave Muerby, Patterson Barret, Ernie Gammage and others.

After the awards were presented and acceptance speeches made, Stephen Doster performed a song and then he and I jammed on “the dare of an angel" after a short break …..the Lost Austin Band held court comprised of all the recipients.
The Lost Austin Band consists of Gary P. Nunn, Bob Livingston, Stephen Doster, Craig Hillis, Bill Browder, Dave Muerby, Patterson Barret, Ernie Gammage. They rocked the room as the crowd grooved to the classic songs from back the day, songs like: Cosmic Cowboy, L.A. Freeway, London Homesick Blues, Last Thing I needed the first thing this Morning, Geronimo’s Cadillac, Don’t it make you Want to Dance. I even squeezed in “You got a Lover” with Michael Hearne joining in on harmony..
It was a great night and fun to be there sharing it with old friends.. yep one to remember, and a wonderful way to begin the new year!
