Pickxen winding Down The summer

It’s not over yet!!!

Join Pickxen in Hayesville, NC Friday August 30, for a wonderful concert  as part of their Friday Night Concerts On The Square series.  Not that far up the road, but in the cooler mountains this will be a grand way to top off your Summer!

New CD almost there.

We hope you are as excited about this as we are!  Lot’s of great guest talent joining us on this record.  Producer John has been working very hard to get this done by the end of the year and we think he is going to make it happen.  Hang in there with us!

New Ideas for performing…

We are going to be trying some new things in  2020 as far as scheduling and performing.  We think you are going to find it easy, entertaining, a bit different and a great addition to your life and music wants.  Stay tuned for future information on this innovative new venture for Pickxen!

Go With The Flow

Go With The Flow

Bumpbitty, bump, bump, bump!

That was exactly how it felt.  While heading downstairs last night Dixie, in her plaid (her own Scottish tartan in fact) stocking feet, kind of missed the first step. The arch of her plaid covered foot slipped right off that very first step. This in turn brought her whole body down to the shag carpet on the step and then she just went with the flow.  The flow being that she went down the steps on her derrière much like a 3 year old would have done.  The main difference being that the 3 year old would have done this on purpose….Dixie had no choice.  But she did have a choice of trying to stop this action or to just “go with the flow”.  Being the wise and worldly Southern woman that she is, she knew it would be best to just take the ride and let the motion stop on it’s own.  Going kind of limp and just go with it.  Less stress on the body and Lord knows, less stress is a good thing! Dixie arrived at the bottom a little shook up, but no injury.  Got up, rubbed her elbow and thought to herself, “Been a long time since I went down the stairs like that! Gracious what a ride! Next time I am grabbing that handrail.”

Songwriting is kind of like bumping down the stairs.  You really just have to go with the flow.

You really just have to go with the flow.  Stiffen up and try  too hard and you get thrown all over the place.  Pixie recently penned a new ditty and just let it take him for a ride.  Dixie added an old school melody and don’t ya just know they ended up with a sweet sounding tune that sounds like it was written back in the days when Country music was about the story.

Like Harlan Howard said, “All you need is 3 chords and the truth.”

Take a listen to this song….it’s not finished in production yet, but will be on our next CD.  We think it is a story that is timeless…as nice to listen to as a kitten purring on your lap.  Just a nice love song….



Check out our new Spotify “follow” button on the home page.

We are still working on this Spotify thing.  For folks our age it is not intuitive AT ALL…but we are making some progress.  Slowly getting it to work…so take a look and a listen and keep us in the technology loop.

Our calendar is filling up!

Excited to be adding new venues this year.  Go look and see when we will be coming near your town and save the date!  We would be thrilled to see you walk through the door.
