Not only a good idea and a very nice set, but I give you major credit Courtney for putting yourself out there and turning in just a fine performance. You did good.

Thank you! Very nice.

Thanks, Ed! The person who was suppose to do "Turnstyled Junkpiled" was sick and lost their voice. I felt someone had to do it.  Glad you liked it. :)

No problem! Glad to do anything to keep Townes' music and memory alive.

Great stuff, Courtney.  Townes will never die or fade away as long as there are people like you, like these guys, like me, who love and honor the music.

Thanks so much, David. We do what we can and it's always good knowing there are others out there like us.
