Telling Stories Through Song

I’ll admit, I’m a little nervous about this Saturday’s show at FWA. I’ve never used an entire concert to tell one story before. Usually I just sort of shoot the shit between songs, making corny jokes and employing every attention getting device in my arsenal. Usually I leave the storytelling to the songs: Jesse: An

The Country Isn’t As Broke As You Think

The following are facts. If you don’t want the opinions, mute the sound and just watch the facts. Either way, I was appalled to see these facts and realize that there is no shortage of wealth in this country. It’s just been compressed during the course of my lifetime.
