‘What a fantastic night at The Troubadour Nashville.

I want to thank Nathan Stanley for putting on this show and opening with his great music.

Nathan Stanley then really shocked me when he had my great friend and the greatest blue-eyed soul singer ever, T. Graham Brown, walk out onstage.

T. Graham Brown: 'Come As You Were' (Capitol Records, 1988)

T. Graham Brown blew away the crowd with his Billboard No.1 country music hit single, ‘Darlene’ (written by Mike Geiger, Ricky Ray Rector and Woody Mullis) (No.1 for one week in November 1988), and was backed by my equally smokin’ hot band, The Farewell Party Band; T. Graham Brown‘s recording of ‘Darlene’ was included on his ‘Come As You Were’ (Capitol Records, 1988) album.
