Trick Pony was a long time ago. I saw them – Keith and Ira and Heidi – at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn. In fact, I have one of Ira’s towels – thanks for tossing that out into the crowd, Ira. I’m not usually the world’s best catcher, but I got that one. I don’t remember exactly how long ago that was – but I think it was something like 12 or 15 years ago. I loved them. Heidi Newfield went out on her own, Keith Burns paired up with Michelle Poe to create the duo, Burns & Poe, and we didn’t hear much from Ira Dean. At least not until now. Ira’s first single, “Somethin’ Bout Sunday” has shipped to radio, he’s doing shows, and his video is ready for the world to see. And I like the song.
I like the song. I like the video, too. It will be interesting to see where this one goes for Ira. Be sure to visit his web site, and check his show schedule. You’ll want to check him out if he’s anywhere near you. Follow him on Twitter @IraDeanMusic, and visit his facebook, too.
Talk to you all later!
