This last Sunday, from the heart of West Seventh at Magnolia Motor Lounge in Fort Worth, TX we had an outstanding line up with Randy Brown, Mike Harmeier (from Mike and The Moonpies), Lucas Bevan and Jake Worthington. We also paid tribute to the late great Mr. Brandon Jenkins, who passed away on March 2nd due to complications from heart surgery.
(Here is the video that was first aired the day of the show as a tribute to the late Brandon Jenkins.)
With all that being said, each of the artists that joined us on the show Sunday had their own way of paying tribute to Brandon. Randy Brown orchestrated a cover of Sing Me Back Home, originally performed by Merle Haggard. The beauty of this was that this particular segment came near the end of the show. It also garnered backing vocals from Bevan, Harmeirer and Worthington who performed the cover beautifully.

Another example of paying tribute to Brandon was when Mike Harmeier decided to play a Willie Nelson tune titled Flying Too Close To The Ground. Harmeier captivated the audience by authentically capturing Nelson's style in his rendition of the song.

While Bevan stuck to his guns with his song choices by playing Broken Ground (The title track from his 2017 EP), he had initially planned to play a cover as a tribute but ran out of time to do so.

And last but not least Jake Worthington, participant from The Voice in 2016, played a tribute song to the late great Daryle Singletary and his latest single Hell of a Highway.

And That's That!
