You have got to hand to a man who can get the word "Tampon" in a Xmas song. :D

He is a singer/songwriter from Texas. Plays mostly local clubs/colleges/small venues etc, but has had some commercial success with his song "Merry Christmas from the Family." Appears on syndicated radio shows such as Bob & Tom and John Boy & Billy. They like to play Xmas songs with the word "Tampon" in it. :D

Edit: He is going to be in Columbus, OH 9/14. I may have to drag the wife to it. :eek:

Being an Aggie, I've seen REK in concert plenty of times. He was roommates with Lyle Lovett back at A&M. I'm quite amazed that D* would show him. Glad they did too.

He is somewhat of an aquired taste like John Prine. I set up my HD TiVo to record him tonight.

Just saw this while flipping through the channels.


Don't really understand why they're randomly inserting it into the otherwise 24/7 PPVHD channel, but good to see nonetheless.

He's great, with a very loyal following. I saw him live in Palisade, Colorado a few years ago and he brought the house (winery) down. Check it out. Acts on this level are the most fun to see in concert. Shiner Bock is his sponser, which I think is cool. Good beer.

I wish I had DirecTV so I could see this in HD. I was at the show and would love to relive it again in HD!

Has D* been simulcasting their Freeview events in HD for a while, or is this the first time?

In the world of beer, Shiner Bock is the pride of Texas. Excellent beverage.
