Taylor Hicks has reportedly postponed the new CD that may be called "The Distance" until March of 2009 instead of February. Texas band, Blue October, is also releasing a new CD in March 2009; heard their single for the new CD on KDGE; they also previewed that single when they performed in Dallas at The House of Blues on December 4th. Texas boys, Blue October, also have their single up for release on iTunes, in time for those Christmas shoppers, what a concept...
You may be scratching your head, what has Blue October got to do with Taylor Hicks? Nothing really with the exception of their differences in handling their music regarding marketing. That leads me to this question, when is Taylor Hicks going to work that promised new single into his "Grease" gig? Initially when he first came out in the press that he was going to be performing it with the production, it sounded as if that was to happen right out of the starting gate of this national tour. Since "Grease" has already hit a few towns and no sign of the single nor definitive word on when that single may actually hit the "Grease" tour, that question remains unanswered. Naturally, word out on this information not to be found on any of the Taylor Hicks' 'official news' sites. Where are my rose colored glasses this morning? Must have dropped them in the sofa cushions.
Blue October recorded their new album at Willie Nelson’s, Perdernales Studio, which lies about 25 miles outside of the band’s adopted hometown, which if you're a Texas musician or artist, you might guess - Austin, TX - of course. Took them two months to make the album, "Approaching Normal". Blue October tunes and information can be found at their MySpazz and here's their Wiki link.
Speaking of Willie, bought a new Christmas CD yesterday.
