The award-winning, comedy documentary about me--ROLL OUT, COWBOY--was released on Video On Demand (VOD) this morning at 6am PST:’s-Award-Winning-Documentary-Roll-Cowboy#.VKQ0tEujNuY

Jonathan Miller of WBEZ Chicago calls ROLL OUT, COWBOY "a portrait of the artist as a pure product of America" and describes Yours Truly as "a fresh sonic breeze blowing in off the Great Plains."   Nice!

Creative Schemes partnered with Film Break to facilitate the release on six VOD platforms: Amazon Instant VideoGoogle Play, PlayStation, VUDU and YouTube Movies.
Tonight--New Year's Eve--I'll be joining one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Hermina Jean, at Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern in Kalispell, MT.  Show begins at 8pm.

Hey, everybody! If anybody would like to host a house concert for me, I'd appreciate it.  It's fun and easy. Here's a two-minute tutorial:

Cold chillin' with RUN-DMC in Jackson Hole, WY, last year.

Here's a great little article about tonight's show at The Roxy Theater in today's Missoula Independent by Kate Whittle!  Local stars such as Caroline Keys, Jeff Turman, Matt Tipton and rapper Tahj Kjelland will join me on stage.  It promises to be a rockin' affair.

Hey kids!  Guess who'll soon be coming to town?  (Hint:  he sees you when you're sleeping and knows when you're awake.)  Yes, it's that creepy, old white dude they call San . . . dman the Rappin' Cowboy!

Indeed, I've got a big February-March tour in the works.  Stay tuned for details!

Also, this Thursday (12/18) at 9pm I'm having a farewell concert at The Roxy Theater:  Missoula's Community Cinema!  I've been employed at The Roxy for almost two years, so this is a big deal for me.  ROLL OUT, COWBOY, the award-winning, crowd-pleasing and, at times, cringe-inducing documentary about my "weird existence," will screen first at 7pm.

Everything is changing in Sandland.  Everything.

I won't go into the gritty details, but many of my old songs are proving grimly prophetic.

For instance:

"Storage unit 209, that's where I store everything that's mine . . ."

There's a fine line between prophetic and pathetic, though, so I reckon I'll leave my paramnesiatic litany at that.

Here's a newer song with more immediate insights--"Hard Lessons."

Jeepers creepers, buddy, it's been nearly a year since my last blog post!

Here's the latest:

Country-music cousin Jonny Fritz, from Nashville, is in town for a week of gigs with myself, The Best Westerns, Caroline Keys and Jeff Turman.  We just returned from playing the Yaak Wilderness Festival--a five-hour drive north of Missoula.  2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.  I dig the wretched wild-country and wish to preserve it infinitely. My song "Horse Graveyard" was a hit given it's commentary on the state of things.

After the Fest Jonny and I were invited to stay at the remote cabin of wilderness author Rick Bass.  Instead we opted to return south so we could float the Flathead River early the next day with Hana and our Olympia friends, Zena and Amy, who are passing through on the tail end of their honeymoon.

Jonny and I arrived at Grammy Deb's chicken farm at 2am and covertly crashed in her bunkhouse.  Eight hours later, after a hearty brunch, we all floated.  Jonny swims like a fish and runs like a wolf if you didn't know.  There's more to this story, but I'll leave it at that.

Stevie, by the way, is now two-and-a-half-years-old. I'll post a picture soon.

The rest of my week is filled with shows and adventure.  I've attached a winning poster made by my pal Matthew LaRubbio.  It lists upcoming tour stops.

I'm now out the door to take Jonny to a barbecue at Shooting Star Saddlery.
