Dear Friends........I know that we will all get through these trying and frightening times. We will gather and heal with live performances and music, again!! Ya'll know I'm gonna be raisin' the roof just as soon as I can!! I've been working with a group of bluegrass musicians who focus on root's music, old country, bluegrass, gospel and ya know I have to bring in a little Texas rockin' blues! We've got some things planned - so I'll keep ya'll posted! I'll be pulling Reckless Abandon back up on it's feet..... so stay tuned! Thank you for the love and support I've received during this terrible pandemic.

Look forward to seeing ya'll out there real soon - take good care - stay safe and when you have the chance show somebody some love, do it! xo CT
