Alan is one of those songwriters whom I might never have heard of if it wasn’t for the start of this house concert series. He was one of our first performers, and has since become a local favorite with his honest and wry delivery of some really remarkable songwriting. Alan tells stories that need to be heard. Many others who have recorded his songs agree with that sentiment, including Del McCoury, Tanya Tucker, Ricky Van Shelton, Michael Martin Murphy, George Jones, and The Oak Ridge Boys.

Every time Alan plays here at the cabin, I wonder why we waited so long to have him back. The shows are wonderful, and he’s developed quite a few fans here in Evansville. Alan’s also a painter, and along with his several CD releases, he sometimes sells original hand-painted t-shirts at his shows. They’re very cool, but I need one in my size!!
