Andy's back!

Musician, songwriter, author, and former EBMA board member Andy Glandt (D) writes:

Hi everybody,

Last night I came back from a nice US tour through Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska. I want to thank all of you who made this nice tour possible, all of you who booked me, and all of you I could stay with. I met old friends I haven't seen in years and and made a lot of new ones, especially in Nebraska and Minnesota.

Surprise hit me at the 35th National Old Time Country & Bluegrass Festival in Le Mars, IA, when I was inducted in the Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame by Bob Everhart.

[Andy's fellow inductees included the country music stars Patti Page and Bill Anderson; see this story from the Le Mars Daily Sentinel]

Another highlight was the international show I did together with Roger Tibbs from New Zealand and George Hamilton IV at the Miles of Memories Country Music Fest in Hastings, NE.

Thanks again and I hope not to wait another five years before I'm back.
