Taylor Hicks sent out a Twitter message on September 2, it read: "Goat Milker, Dog Whisperer, and Cattle Driver..John Henry move over..." Quite clever considering what he's been doing while in and around Ft. Worth and Dallas during his time here with the national touring production of "Grease".
Taylor Hicks has been saying in the local interviews how he loves Texas, and the appreciation seems to be reciprocated. He's been doing the interview circuits and the DFW media has been very kind to him. Well everyone with exception of one particular member of the audience as we can see in this upcoming video.
The Dog whisperer: 'Tough crowd' indeed. Yes, whispering and singing, and harmonica playing, but Burt the Basset hound mix can't be persuaded to move. Pooch looks rather like my basset mixed mutt, Cody. Energy is just not their thing.
"Seven Mile Breakdown" on FOX 4:
(He just can't stop singing about me.)
Channel 5 Interview with Bobbie Wygant:
The Channel 11 CBS interview with Taylor Hicks.
Now regarding reference to the goat, apparently Mr. Hicks had some sort of appearance in Victory Park and there were goats involved; have not located footage on that as of yet. The Cattle Driver portion of his message on Twitter, an obvious reference to the daily cattle drive that takes place in the Ft. Worth stockyards.
That sums up the catching up I was able to do this morning on the whats, wheres of Taylor Hicks in Dallas. Still haven't heard back on that barbeque invitation. I guess perhaps next time. Happy Trails, Taylor Hicks.
