After a couple of weeks of looking back at releases from 2017, we got back into the regular Boudin Barndance groove this evening. We opened with some of the first releases from 2018 before moving to our usual C&W birthday salutes set. Plucked some nuggets from the past for a good chunk of the 2nd half of the show before closing with a remembrance of Rick Hall of FAME fame. New and upcoming releases making their Barndance debut tonight included albums from H.C. McEntire, Ben Miller Band, Fruition, Dusty Rust, Stephen Clair & the Pushback, Ramblin’ Deano, AJ Ghent, David Myles, Tommy Emmanuel, and the new Elmore James tribute Strange Angels. Buttshaker of the week????  Keepin’ it in the FAME camp, Clarence Carter with “Snatchin’ It Back.”  Now let’s all grab a cold one, or two, and get to the goods….
