Here he is……… one of my favorite country crooners, Gary Stewart.

His song titles read like an autobiography of a man well steeped in marital and personal malaise, like most great country artists, but his is performed with pulsating vibrato. His voice is haunting and the songs foretell his own end.  Titles like: “She’s Acting Single, I’m Drinking Double”, “Single Again”, “Whiskey Trip”, “Cactus And A Rose”. Although seeming morose, they are classic and  songs I can step and sway to alone or in a honky tonk.

Jen at Bandit Brand invited us to come along to the desert last weekend with a few buddies for the grand opening of Hoof and the Horn in Yucca Valley.

Owners and ex-Ohio-ans Jen and Adam have put together a fantastic little hideaway for all things awesome including all the vintage Harley tees you could ask for and some pretty dresses for the girly girls too.

Be sure to check them out on your next trip to Pappy and Harriet’s or Joshua Tree.

Midnight Rider tees and vintage cowboy boots. And yes, I bought another pair.

Fun toys from  Earthquaker Devices.
