Rich turned me on to Eva Cassidy, who he described as someone who wanted to sing the way she wanted to sing and not like the way her record label did, so she walked out and followed the harder path.

He gave me her CD.

After her death her former producer quit and dedicated his time to promoting her as she was:

That's her signature song.  I remember Rich and I shared a love of Eva Cassidy (so far from country music!), and I had sent him her most recent CD. 

She was someone else who died far too young.

Truman, my Friend,

I am sure that exhausted doesn't even begin to cover it.  Please get some rest tonight, and we'll talk later in the week - much later - unless you just want to talk.  You don't need to do anything more than you've already done.  Some of the rest of us can take the reins for a little while.  If there are any important developments, I will let you know.

You are a true friend who can be counted on when it's important and you really came through this weekend.  Rest for awhile now.

Love,
Lynne

Truman, hope you're having a reasonable day and were able to get some rest last night. It was so good to have you here... wish y'all could just stay here  :-\
When you put people in charge of the government who are committed to proving that it doesn't work, you can be sure that they will cause it to not work.

I wish that too Wayne. I always said I hated Atlanta, but I now know that was the same reason I hated Myrtle Beach. It had nothing to do with the city, it had to do with the ex and some other things that happened way back when I was 17....lol. Now after being there this time even under the bad circumstances........I think it is really a cool city.......I like it.
