"I love that line. You don't have any tattoos your tattoos or scars and we were having a conversation before we started recording and john had made some comments about my art work on my arms and he said well i don't have any yet so i really didn't think about that too much until just now was that song written in like a first person like yeah. I guess or you can plead the fifth. That's exactly. I wrote that one with my all time first time. Songwriting buddy ronnie walker. And we we wrote it via text message back and forth each other that we were trying to one up each other on the line and the tattoo line was abby had to have surgery a hand surgery and they had to take skin grafts from her stomach like underneath her belly button and they took the skin graphs on there and they grafted it on her hands and we knew we knew that it was gonna leave a scar okay and it was about a six or seven inch scar. That basically was going to be like parallel with her waistline. Like straight across her stomach. And so i talked to talk to the doctor while was in there and i said so. This is going to be a scar and you're going to be there forever right. And he's he said yes and the doctor's name is doctrine nature. dr nassar. Is there any way that you could make it look like a cadillac v so that it goes down to a point so it's like so it's like a tattoo but is a scar And he said yeah. I can do that and so he made the. The scar looked like a cadillac v. Like like the emblem on the front immature cadillac and told abby house. Like hey you're going to. You're going to have scarborough. Your total is going to be cool is going to be flying v in. It'll be be just like a tattoo but scarves cooler than a tattoo. Choose like yay and so that and then after we did that. That's why put put that line in the in the song and you know beer life bar life. Everyone's got tattoos. And when are you going to get your tattoo. Whatever and so. That's that was my one clever. Line that about it. i like it. I think that we paul probably experienced version of a who she at the bar right. It's important. I mean we all grew up. You know it's all in the cards male or female exactly. Yeah absolutely i who cheese to oh. They're there for sure there is that would you say that most of your songs are written based on factual of events or you do you dream songs up to ride. Does it always have to be an experience or or does it come out better an experience or the just you know. Pick a word out you know and songwriting classes. You pick a word and then right. You're right around the word right. So i didn't know if some of your stuff comes out like that or not or if it's a combination most of my songs stuff that ends up making making the record his has got a connection to me somewhere. Okay you know. And that's. I'm not sure who told me. It may have been rex bell Guy who previously owned the old quarter down in galveston. Yeah he said man gotta live it to ride it. Man you gotta live try. Huger played with towns van zandt and all that and he's always like you gotta live to write it and so that early on my career that kind of stuck with me and so and it makes sense. Yeah it's it puts you in a place of authority over what you're talking about or singing about and it makes believable. If you believe it then everyone else believe it. So that's where based most of my writing yum. But i do use. I think about writing courses in in high school where i would. I would have an assignment. And i'd have to go right about this. I'm like when i first went to knox junior high. I was in creative. Writing course and it was my first day there and it was a friday and and the ladies. You've got this assignment you gonna make up a makeup your own product that you're going to sell and you need to write a commercial and get up in front of the class on monday and sell it and so i thought okay. I don't know anybody. This is the first time. I'm getting up in front of anyone and so i made up a product called super shine. Cleaner and super shine. Cleaner was iglesias cleaner. And so i made up a commercial and i got up in the front of the class. Basically the first day that anyone's said hi to me and say hi to hi there. All you friends neighbors. This is john speaking to get. You is peaking come on down by my cleaner. It's lot meaning because it's from pasadena's got class if you've got a smudge it'll clean your glass. People wear glasses. Know what i mean. You can't see unless you glasses at clean to squirt dab and rub it on and if you get another smudge just do it again. A dollar ninety nine dollars all it cost with super shine cleaner. You won't even get lost. Super shine cleaners. What you say. Get on the squirt. Get off the spray dig. That's google and so that that was my introduction to everyone is so my sister and gotten the bedroom. You know that we can before monday. We wrote that thing and then ever. Since then i've been writing. It was like that was that was the kickoff. remember it. oh and it's cool that you remember every word that still to this day i guess when you write it you tend to not forget it. It's what they say. Muscle muscle memory for sure for sure. Now there was One off the polyester released that polyester we talked about coming out around to search two thousand six see and it was a or is a tune called Grandma's chair. And i think the first time i saw the video on youtube. I think jack ingram had actually introduced the song. And i think i am. I correct me if i'm wrong. You may know more than i do. But i think ray benson is the host of that show and he was with a group called asleep at the wheel. Roach had a lot of success. We'll take a listen to grandma's.

"Their health insurance they had through their jobs. When they lost those jobs because of the pandemic under the most recent virus relief package, just about everybody who got unemployment benefits this year will be eligible starting tomorrow for free health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. For the rest of the year. Marketplaces Nancy Marshall Ganz ER has that story. If you received at least a week of unemployment benefits this year and sign up for Obamacare, regardless of your income, you could actually get an insurance plan for free. Vivian Ho is a health economist at Rice University. She says someone receiving unemployment who's just enrolling in Obamacare would save more than $7000 in premiums. They'd still be on the hook for copays of around $5 and a low deductible. I do think it will help some people who are just really in a desperate situation right now that, um, if you've lost your job in the middle of this pandemic, and you have no income, and you're trying to deal with housing and put food on the table The Congressional Budget Office estimates that more than a million people will take the government up on its offer of free insurance, Karen Pollitz, says his senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation I think the goal was absolutely to make coverage as available and affordable as possible. And even though the free coverage only lasts through this year, there's a good chance. The newly insured will stay on Obamacare because of other temporary subsidies that last through 2022 Catherine Baker is a health economist at the University of Chicago. Once people get enrolled in a policy, they do tend to stick with it, partly because they get access to doctors, who then have a relationship with them. And that will inch the Biden administration closer to its goal of health care coverage for all. I'm Nancy Marshall Ganz er for marketplace. Mm hmm. Look, sometimes you miss us. We get it Can't always be sitting around the radio where the streaming service or what have you If that happens, podcast us, would you Mm hmm. Hmm. Hmm. Hmm. Mhm. Given the way the music streaming economy works, specifically the relatively paltry remuneration that musicians get from the various streamers. Those artists got to take to the road to really make money, live concerts for fans, right? The pandemic, of course, blew a hole in that business model. But some bands did scratch and scrape their way through and are now back out on the road again, one of them being the Western swing slash country band asleep at the wheel there based down in Austin, Texas. They've been around for about 50 years. Marketplaces Andy Euler caught up with him the other day to hear how they got through the pandemic. What their business prospects might be looking like now.

"Donald Ross Sportswear at Del Golf, Zilker Belts, nine banded whiskey. The naughty Deccan bars, the Renaissance Hotel at the Arboretum and modest Tex Mex. Gotta get afternoon. You look like you just got off the golf course. It was a little windy out there, Ed. I got to tell you and played with Ben Crenshaw two times Master Stamp and our friend Bob K, and we got blown all over the court. But I didn't expect it. I saw the forecast. It looked like it was gonna be warm. You know, this is normally our day for them. Uni putting tournament the Munich Bulldog re union. All the guys that used to have Play over immunity and around Christmas time they play football out on the putting green and such and get chased off by the pro over there, And but Was canceled this year cause a covert. Yeah. Yeah. So we're going to talk me you need today that we should have a little fun. Because because we miss that event this year. Yeah, I remember seeing pictures of it over the years and some of the great let Walter Benson was there. Usually Mr Benson would he was there last year. 103 Now 103 years old and a great group of Guys. You love beauty. Well, Scott, he talked about it on the show. Today. We've got two very special guest our friend J. Reynolds, who owns the course record at lines Municipal. It's a 60, a very special guest. Who's with us on the 15 Club. Live line right now is Aaron Seifert of Golf Content creator the best looking son of Ray Benson. And I Guess Aaron, you could call it a mini documentary. That you did on J. 60 immunity. Welcome to the show and tell everybody what you have done to recapture J 60 immunity. Oh, fellas. Thanks for having me And I, Scottie, Thanks for that little plug about being the best looking son. We won't. We won't tell anybody how much I paid you to say that, but I appreciate you following through and not just taking my money. Uh, but, yeah, no, we you could call it well, I guess it's a short film, you know, now with Instagram and YouTube, it's a lot easier to take eight minutes of content. Just put it out into the world and, you know, say, Hey, I've got a cool story to tell. And And then next thing you know you can you can put it out there to the world, So that's what we did. Let me tell you what I rewatched it again today and it is really cool and it's really good filmmaking, and it's great if you're a golfer, and especially great if you love lines Municipal to hear about that round. I wish really Aaron captivated by it. It is wonderful work. Well, thanks. I appreciate that. Yeah. I mean, my thing is, you know, my brother was state champion golfer. And you know, Jay's a very accomplished golfer. And those were all the guys I grew up with, and I was never a very good golfer, but I always loved the game. And so this is kind of my way. You know, I think maybe I was always a storyteller, or like to watch. You know all these guys play. So you know, when I had heard about Jay's course record, 60, I was all definitely, you know, impressed with it. And as I kind of started to think about it more I wanted to. I wanted to delve in a little deeper. I wanted T O have him take me through the round. You know which, if you're like me, and you played in union growing up You know all the holes, you know, you know, 13. You can misjudge the wind and you can chunk a wedge into the water real easy. And so there's a lot of lot of different holes where you can we can have around go bad, So I kind of wanted him to just take me through that back nine and And tell me what he was thinking over each hole and You know, kind of the improbable birdie that he had on 16. You know, Birdy and Hogan's hole is always gonna be a great feeling. So, Yeah, we just kind of take you through his day and get you a little insight into what he was thinking. We've put the video up on the 15th club. Facebook page. Aaron, How do you look at the different videos? You have? I know you've got the l A golf guy. Eyes that your moniker on Instagram. Yeah. You know, I'm not. I've got to work on my nicknames, but But I am out here in Los Angeles and, uh, win quarantine happened. I make movie trailers for a living as an editor. And nobody was going to movie theaters for a little bit. So our business kind of took a step back on. I treated it as a sabbatical, and I just kind of spent two weeks with my camera out on the golf course. And you know what can we do here? So, Yeah. If you check out l, a golf guy, you'll see the wide range. Videos from good to really bad, too strange, but all golf related. That's great. And you've got a story because you're family. Used to play many on Christmas Day race always told us about you and Sam and and Ray going out there and play and even though the course is not officially open on Christmas Day, well, You know, raise always pretty good at breaking in tow places that are open. Well, there's actually a pretty funny story when we watched Ricky Williams break the rushing record. We actually did not have a ticket to that game. Ray knew one of the ticket operators and he was gonna sneak him in. But that guy wasn't there that day, so I don't know how but a 6 ft seven inch man with a 12 year old kid snuck into Royal Memorial Stadium. So yeah, we ways to think out there and play it occasionally. Well, I know he was looking for Louis Morello that day. Coach rolls. Yeah, That's E. I think got their 7 A.m. and Ray didn't get there until 11 a.m. E was Erin. I was with Ben Crenshaw today talking about then holding, you know, Ben held that record. For from the time that Randy Petri who shot it in 1959, he shot 61 at age 18. And then banned shot 61 that team 72. And so J comes along 43 years later and shoot 60. So that's a that's a pretty good piece of subject matter for you to cover. Yeah. What I loved about it, is it? You know, Once again it's another local story. You know, I always loved been story because it was kind of his beginning. You know, He's the local kid, and he goes on to win two masters and have this incredible career. And you know J stories a little bit different and that he but, you know, he's a local kid. Local star goes off his pro career. I'm sure didn't go the way he thought it would be, even though he did have some success. You know here it comes back from a pro career into amateur golf and and he set the course record and it's just great for me to have that kind of local story. It just I think with Mu Ni you have to have that local knowledge. You have to have a child who's worth of play in their toe. Go that low because you have to know what the greens air like. You have to know what the grain is like and So, Yeah, I just I've always enjoyed both those stories. For that reason. I think the next story you need to cover is something you need to follow it around and watch him shoot 82. It means so drink bloody marries. You know that's exciting. You give me the go ahead and I'll go follow out for a round of golf Anytime you don't have to convince me. Uh, Erin Sarfaraz with us, a golf content Creator best looking son of our friend Ray Benson. I call him a filmmaker because he did great work. What's your next project is gonna be golf related Or what are you doing these days after this, the film with J. Yeah. You know, we're doing some stuff out here with the S e g. A, the Southern California Golf Association. We're just trying to get more people involved in the game. So that's kind of what I'm doing out here. But, um, you know, we're looking toe come back and And do some more films about immunity. You know, we've been talking tol and so really, really. I'm just always looking for stories and you know soon as one pops up Um, that's that's where I'll be. We've got stories for you. Come on. We got stories, and I play every Friday morning with my zing Zang Group, My Bloody Mary group, and it's It's just a slice of Americana out there on Friday mornings, all races, creeds and colors ATM uni on a Friday morning between eight and 10 o'clock teeing off, it's It's really fascinating.

"When i had to. Bob wills tribute album said hey. Let's just do that when you already ever arrangement at suits where unique in will at our little thing to you know and help get them their agent you know when they were just getting going and we will put him on shows you know opening up for us so we had a friendly associate family friendly relationship with a. Yeah you kind of took on a role as a you know you. You've obviously out as being more than the the leader of asleep at the wheel. And you've done quite a bit of producing and i've i recently interviewed suzy. Bogus who helped produce. What did you do with her. What was it called swinger. I don't remember can remember but it was a wonderful album of standards and newly written standards. Dude dude the took a monkey for the as dot that everything was on the square. Those are tired of all the monkey off of his back. The monkey grabbed his neck and said now. Listen jack straighten up and pharoh stayed napping flyer and she's so towns. She did a song she performed. Live like how we're doing it. She just grabbed her guitar. A song right on the on the zoom and. I was just floored by it. She says her voice hasn't lost step. Yes got pure very pure voice. It's just lowly their big fan and a good friend. You okay. great. And i'm gonna kinda jump back into the austin city limits of here because i am wondering what does it mean to you to have been inducted into the acl hall of fame and twenty fifteen and now to have the folks paying tribute to your fiftieth years. Band wail austin city limits smith. So much to me. You know it's Air you know. That was our introduction to the world. Basically the shows that we did in the seventies. I was introduction and later on they were. They enabled us to you know to do these really special shows that that were tribute shows etc. You know they just gave me a real to to be able to showcase all the different crazy ideas i had. What was the was that were those shows similar to what people would expect to see if you were just tarini anywhere around the state so the globe at any point in time because it seems like things were done so tight when you go back and watch him everybody knows exactly when their solo is gonna come up and i'm just wondering what the preparation was going into those no concept of asleep at of city limits was You get stage and do what you do every night really you know. There's no there was no. Yeah that's just. That was the whole idea. I remember willie saying to me willie. Nelson says we just wanted to show where we get up and play music for thirty minutes or an hour and not have detail. Golf jokes with bob it. Just this is what we do every night. Here it is on the camera. Start to tape machine. Let it roll. I love going back and seeing some of those early shows where you just got the crowd in just sitting on the floor and then you know it starts to pick up energy wise and people get up and start doing the line dancing and different dance and had to be such a unique place to play. Yeah the the i got. I got a chance to see what's coming out at the end of october here and it ends with his hyped-up version of cotton eye. Joe what made you want to record that song where we played it every night in the dancehalls and as you notice all the if you're in texas they pretty much know that. That's the dance. The cotton eye. Joe is not aligned. Ads it's a partner dance over. It's you know i but it is not aligned. Dance that's different. That's why because that's who we were and that's who we are. What we play. Dancehall will do connecticut on joe. And then i got me that. Got me wondering if you've got any thoughts on the fact that that song is now that it's so deeply rooted in the american music. I think it's been around since the mid eighteen hundreds or something like that but now it's being blasted at sporting events as as like this techno tune. I'm just wondering if you have any thoughts on that progression of that song. Oh you're talking about. Yeah that's that was a european thing they'd take it to a whole 'nother live with some european group that they was i don't know if it's another level it certainly was gimmicky thing. I don't know. I have no idea. I heard that i was able to through. Wikipedia is able to jump over that. And you're right rednecks with an axe and then it's the swedish band that just took it and made it electric which i was. I'd never known that. I just figured that. Somebody just saying the crap out of a bunch of stuff and then did it. Some other way So you've said recently in an interview that you are currently writing singing playing better than you ever have. So what can you know. Fans like me. Fans fed that are out there. What can they expect coming up. Well we're almost done a new albo it's With the the new singer is katie shore. She's wealthed than with six years but she's the up the sanger and so sony were finishing that and That's re much in its I wrote a song called half one hundred years and That's the title of the album at. That's the new sale in video will come out of nowhere be in the spring now. We're sort of waiting for some sort of not a break but the better situation. So that with the cohen stops when the when record comes out we go out. That seems to be a lot of people that i'm talking to right now. Who have records coming out and just couldn't delay or expected to be on tour right now and things like that. That's just it's the common theme with musicians right now as we just want to get out and play these songs for for the people because that's what drives us. It makes us want to create more. And i think that what you saying earlier about being on the road you can't. You're kind of want to go somewhere. And being a studio set you can create. But you kind of need that time away in order to get re-energized and go and do it and as a fan of music and someone who is typically going out and seen live music locally three or four nights a week.

"If as well unfortunately the The music business filled with such upstanding people decided A number of years ago to eliminate all the awards for instrumental music rock and roll etcetera. So we will no longer win any of those awards. Not that i care. Because i've got more than my share of rewards posits. Nine grammys actually ten. But who's counting. I'm sorry the but it's You know it's really disturbs me. Because instrumental music is the lifeblood of a music. You can't you can't play a song. Without instruments and instrumental. Music also puts a premium on melodies and structure as opposed to lyrics. The lyrics are absolutely very important than they're they're you know they're the lifeblood of popular music but The fact that on the radio every format in today's world you will not hear an instrumental in you. Go back to the twenties. Thirties forties fifties sixties seventies even in the eighties and you would hear instrumental music on the parade or top forty or whatever and to me. It's just a crime of the music business to have done away with this in terms of writing. It's for a musician. It's the simplest thing for me to do of melodies are just come out of my head in my hands and my years all day. Just one of those lucky souls yeah formalities. Words are a little harder words our Poetry and or communicative. Whatever so that's to me. The hardest to really right relevant hard hitting lyrics. yeah and what. What so around. Nineteen seventy when you guys get together. What what are you guys listening to. At that time. That just says were either hearing something that we want to go in and be a part of or something that we're not hearing that we think the music industry needs what we look back in nineteen sixty nine hundred seventy when we formulated the idea for this ban a so much of the past was being forgotten discarded what we call roots roots americana music in And you know he looked. Just look where. You are. The in the middle sixties. The english were were Very adept at at bringing back forgotten. American music in america have forgotten about like the rolling stones especially the beatles etcetera and revitalize popular music by their look back and then reinterpreting what they had experienced before so that seems to be the case of with us. We wanted to bring back the roots. American music did hit it with the roots of the popular music of the day and reinvigorate them with our own a personality and talent. Yeah do you think that you would place. A group of musicians like the band. The band that's called the band would be americana to you absolutely. Yeah The band one of the greatest bands i ever saw and i knew the poets. They rick danko richard manual. Were were friends of mine. Didn't robbie well. I did not know i'd met. Carthage loved the yes they they were. I think a prototype americana ban for sure. Stay tuned for more song packs. Podcast right after this. My thought when i was just kinda dig into the history of of you and seeing when you came around was you know. I assume that the like the definitive nineteen seventy date is a little bit loose and that there was some stuff going on leading up to that but my my original thought was okay. Big pink kind of came out in sixty eight. I think it was that maybe something like that. Hit you guys and you're like okay. Here's some guys doing something. A little bit more throwback and we wanna do something like this but maybe add a little bit more of a country twang to it. Yeah band the band was never a prototype for me. I just thought they were one of the great bands of all time period. And like i say some of the great singer some of the greatest songs and of course their collaboration with dylan was obviously at a huge imprint. On what they were but they went back to you. Know to ronnie hawkins. In and roadhouse bans In that respect. Yeah 'cause we were. Always a roadhouse ban for many years and still occasionally although the seeds of certainly changed we play more concerts festivals and performing arts centers. Now than we do did back then. Yeah yeah the ronnie hawkins kind of stuff that they were doing even in the late fifties and early sixties and. When i started learning about that band i was. I was really impressed to learn that. I think three out of them were or maybe more than that were canadian. They weren't even americans. Except for levi's no one was the only one. But they went down to helena. Arkansas and cut their chops you know but again you know canada. In america in terms of music country music styles from canada that there's a huge country music scene between folk music tyson at cetera. We're you know we're separated by a very very nebulous border. And it's funny. Because he be canadian. You must know about canadian content. The fact that canada was smart enough to to protect their their indigenous. You know a music community well. The border doesn't black radio ways sedate. See klw up there. In windsor was detroit and So you know the you know we're all you know. Obviously both canadians and americans are very much distinct in their view of who they are but easily. We're one we're one big country for sure. Yeah no i agree with that. And it's kind of wondering about your as i started to like read into it. I'm i get a little bit. Just your time in the ninety s seemed to be heavy into the collaborations. Because you were bringing in stuff with like tim. Mcgraw dixie chicks. I think that's when you kinda got with lyle. Lovett and stuff and whether any of those songs or collaborations that really stuck out to you. Especially i can't can i call the dixie chicks anymore. The chicks that that you know what you did with them. I thought was really really great. And i'm just wondering if that time was a memorable time for you. Well yeah the dixie chicks before they dixie chicks those like you know before natalie join them okay to work in the to.

"John. That's give me a little bit. Because i believe the song was originally rejected. Is that right here you aching and so can you kinda give me a little bit of background on that. Well cody's brother cody and his lost spiderman. Chris frayne had the line he came to me in leroy and said hey got a great line for country western song so we wrote it and then we sent it to puerto Ignorant dolly parton mail. We didn't know we just put seven the male and they didn't do it so so we did We did a demo of it for the then record company. Cbs records than they didn't like it so they dropped us so anyway and it was a top ten hit record top ten record radio world so what about you guys sent it off hoping that somebody else was going to record it. Is that something you guys have done in the past as well with other songs. No we were young and stupid. Okay well i like that. So in your fifty years as a band. I mean one of the things that so remarkable about you guys is how you have if you had you had like ninety two hundred different musicians just in your band. And then you've played with so many people. I mean lyle lovett you've got willie nelson and then more recently one of my personal favourite current bands as the covid brothers and i guess as a performer. Would you have it any other way. No no this. Is you know the the goal as a young musician was play with better musicians or people that i admired boy. That's come true so you know that's that's great. What what is it about that mixing it up. Do you think that that's been something that's always just kind of pushed you as a musician to keep getting better. Oh yeah yeah every day. You know where i'm sitting here. There's tara over. There are over there piano over there. Ukulele over there in the app always trying to get better. In of course having a the The ability to to Collaborate is just the biggest compliment. Anybody could ever give me or you or anybody in other words personal says. Hey i want to want to join you in this pursuit of osa jamming or creating. So yes the greatest feeling for me anyway. Yeah where did you find yourself. More comfortable touring her in the studio. I couldn't say you know i. I missed during now since we haven't heard since march we played six since march That we're doing a bunch more coming up. So i miss being on the road right now but when the road i miss being able to create in the studio and also on the road..

"If you conflicts you could do whatever you want. Well, the NFL Yes, You can reward somebody else. Another Monday night game. I don't care. You know it going into the weekend. It's time to move things around. And yeah, that was kind of tough. I'll tell you what the NFL and we'll have to circle back to this but an apparent and appears they can do whatever they want. Because the owners approved today, relatively breaking is did you see this? To expand the playoff field to 16 teams. If there are future games lost because of Corona virus, So if everything goes according to plan, they're not going to do it. I guess it's just one game is lost. I'm not sure what will trigger this, but they're going to go toe 16 team playoff format That means no by teams. That means that they're changing the rules in the middle of the season, which I guess in the pandemic times, that's fine. But I couldn't they have just extended it rise just added an extra week. Yeah, I don't know why Why they don't do this now. Aren't you punishing the teams that have the best record and win the division or whatever. There's no bias whatsoever. And by expanding the playoff field you are you are punishing the better teams. By forcing them to play games against teams that don't belong again. Will you say they don't belong, though? Okay, hold on their lovers of the NFC East Division who loves a cob on Tyler with a season. We should make an except had dibs on naming at the NFC least, Clement eliminates them. But if they were to do this expansion The Bears would get in in the NFC East in the NFC Do the Bears belong in the playoffs. The five and four bears if they're five and four.

"The In. And I mentioned it to the Guy Hall man that's perfect. Actually apply son came up with. This does your son play. He plays the Ukulele and especially I mean the last few months during lockdown he's been playing a lot so. Yeah we have fun playing together and can he loves music so both my kids love music's i. think that's wonderful. Well, speaking out there might be some other parents out there who have kids that well, they're looking for things to do right now they might be music talented. What advice would you tell the? Parents of kids out there the kids out there to. But if they want to develop their music interests, he how if you've never played Qeleli before you know I mean it's very affordable there and it's very easy to learn and I'm not I'm not just saying that you know it's it's one of the things that I love about the UCLA. Is, it's not intimidating. You know it's four strings. The strings are made of Nylon. So they're soft on the fingers for children. It's perfect because it's not it's not a large instrument. So it's easy for them to sit down like when I was four. That's when I my mom started teaching me when I put it in my lap and I just started strumming. Just a secord you know just one finger and and that's the thing with Kelly's you can play so many chords which would just using one finger and you can play entire songs just using one finger of your left hand. and. It's So I think I think the Nice thing about it is it's encouraging because you you're immediately playing. And you're immediately playing a song and. I think that kind of motivates you to man I can do this, and then it makes you want to learn the second song or third song versus if you're learning the trumpet or if you're learning the violin or even guitar, you know it can be quite challenging and it can take a bit of time before you you're playing your first song. So then it requires more patients. Right, and not everybody has the patience and the time. But with the Ukulele you don't you don't need to have the luxury of patients in you don't need the luxury of time you can just. You can just pick it up and you know just a simple tutorial would just take you through two or three chords, and then with that, you can play of songs. It's such a happy instrument to I have to say because you're right I mean you get in once you're playing in court your strumming and it's like you just can't help but smile. Yes. Exactly, it's also these are crazy times I just WANNA ask you. What's coming up for you? What's what's next? So I have a have a collaborations album that's coming out you know which is you know I think everyone's collaborating right now you know but Yes. I have a new collaborations album that's coming out. It was come on in October, but we're it's already done but we're pushing the date back to to the spring or early next year. But But yeah, I'm looking forward to a man. It's got all my heroes on it. You know I did a track with Willie Nelson, you know Bette Midler and Ray Benson billy string sunny land draft Kenny loggins Michael mcdonagh Oh John Anderson I mean it's it's. You know and we're doing We're doing like Bette Midler, she sang the rose you know and it's very the the though approach was to just get in the studio and just be very casual about it. You know nothing overly produced in fact, a lot of it is just me playing the UKULELE and and they're just singing. So it's It's pretty it's it's a it's a very special record for me and I and I just I can't wait to release it. You know we lease it or it's looking to hear it. It sounds awesome. Willie, Nelson did stardust It's amazing. Yeah. It's just it's just beautiful. I remember just just being in a studio with him last actually we started this project couple years ago.
