“Music is an outburst of the soul.”
What a great year 2015 proved to be for PuffBunny! We watched Taylor Pie’s induction into the National Traditional Country Music Assn Hall of Fame and applauded The Oak Ridge Boys inclusion of her song, “Peace Within”, cowritten with Allen Reynolds & Dicky Lee on their widely acclaimed “Rock of Ages” gospel album. Now we’re waiting to hear if Dale Ann Bradley‘s cd, “Pocket Full of Keys” will win a grammy for bluegrass album of the year which will make us jump for joy because Pie and Ruby Lovett penned one of the tunes on the album called, “Hard Lesson Road“!
2016 is already in the work mode with productions of a live songswarm cd which will include great songwriter performers like George Ensle, Greg Whitfield, Jack Saunders, Michael O’Connor and Jeff Plankenhorn! Then there’s….well, we don’t want to give it all away right now, so stay tuned for lots of new music coming your way in the new year!
Here’s Taylor Pie about to board the PuffBunny plane in Sioux City for Tennessee. She was inducted into the National Traditional Country Music Assn Hall of Fame on Sept. 5th in LaMars, Iowa, and performed on stage that evening with her old friend Jerre Haskew, formerly of The Cumberland Trio, who received a Lifetime Achievement award from the association. His wife, Barbara was also there to accept folk album of the year for the Haskew family’s “Songs From the Fiery Gizzard.” Congratulations again!
Congratulations Liberty Arts House Concerts on becoming an official Folk Alliance International sanctioned venue! We are proud to be a sponsor of the music you bring to your community in Liberty, TN! Many of our fine Texas musicians have played at the Liberty Arts Center and we are actively involved in helping them livestream some events.
The official Pozo Seco Singers website is where you can purchase the re-release of the group’s final Columbia album, “Shades of Time” @ the best online price available. There is a fabulous history of the group tucked inside, along with 11 singles that never made it on an album before Pie and Don Williams left the label like, “I Believed it All”, “Louisiana Man”, and “Morning Dew”, and if you order from their website, you can even get it autographed!
The Pozo album is a great companion cd to Pie’s first solo album after Don and Pie retired the group, which is available now on the CDBaby shelves! Allen Reynolds not only produced the record, but you’ll hear him singing throughout, playing guitar and even whistling on Dolly Parton’s song, “Blue Ridge Mountain Boy.”
Thanks to all of you who’ve purchased a copy already and are now spreading the word to others. You are still PuffBunny’s main marketing network, and your support is what keeps us coming with the music! And don’t worry, we’ll keep the shipments going out to make sure those of you who don’t have a copy yet, can get one!
And if you haven’t seen the article posted about Pie by Les Marcott for Scene4 Magazine, it is a must read for Pie and Susan fans alike! Thank you Les for a beautifully written account of our Americana folk pop artist extraordinaire!
