The COVID-19 home edition of The Boudin Barndance continued this evening in what was a standard issue Barndance from the content perspective. We are starting to get the hang of this pre-show preparation thing learning to use the available tools to do do. It’s stil a learning curve and sorry about the reduced volume during the show. New and recent albums making their Barndance debut tonight included albums from Watkins Family Hour, John Anderson, The Tender Things, Pokey LaFarge, Pam Tillis, and the upcoming album from Marshall Chapman (which is terrific!). Buttshaker of the week???? The late Don Rich takes him the trophy with a cover of the George Jones classic “Love Bug.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
