A lot of our readers, especially the ones who have been listening to country/southern rock music for the past 50 years or more, are going to remember every name in the title of today’s article. the band Cowboy. Two of the band’s founding members, Scott Boyer and Tommy Talon, along with NC Thurman will be headlining a show at City Winery Nashville on Friday night, Dec. 9. I will no doubt be giving my age away when I tell you that their opener, Kaz Hawkins, is one of my favorite artists from that era.
The show is on Friday night, Dec. 9, at 9:30 p.m., the doors open at 9 p.m. You can get all the other information you need by visiting City Winery Nashville website. Just click here.
Recordings released by Cowboy include: “Reach For The Sky” (1971), “5’ll Getcha Ten” (1971), “Boyer & Talton” (1975) and “Cowboy” (1977). Two compilations were released- “Why Quit When You’re Losing” (1975) and later 1993’s “A Different Time: The Best of Cowboy (released on Polydor). The 1976 album “Happy to Be Alive” by Talton with Bill Stewart and Johnny Sandlin was, in all case and purposes, as much a Cowboy album as could be at the time.
Multi award winning Kaz Hawkins is Northern Ireland’s very own blues and soul darling. The Belfast born singer-songwriter is fast becoming a performing icon across UK & Europe with the United States temptingly beckoning her over. Her high energy, original shows with her 1950s style swing-dress-meets-Dr Martens look and ability to closely connect with her public contribute to make Kaz one of today’s most popular blues artists in the UK and Ireland, as she continues to play to full houses.
This is a busy time of year for all of us. If you are in Nashville, take a minute from your busy holiday schedule and spend a little time with Scott Boyer, Tommy Talton, NC Thurman and opener Kaz Hawkins on Friday night, Dec. 9. Going to leave you with a video of one of Kaz’s songs that I really enjoy, and think you will,l too.
