FROM BEHIND THE LENS - I was privileged to attend the first annual Holiday Hangout, a live collection (a veritable who's who) of new and established Americana bands from mostly the South and Midwest - brought together by Travis Hill, owner of Last Chance Records. The 3 day event was held at the legendary White Water Tavern in Little Rock, AR December 7-9th. The memories of these nights will last far longer than the season...

ABOVE and BELOW - Cory Branan and Lucero's Ben Nichols topped Sunday's bill taking turns singing and accompanying each other on guitar and vocals. The White Water Tavern is a favorite of Nichols when he's back in Little Rock on a break from touring with Lucero, and he seemed to be right at home at the Tavern, hanging out with good friends.
