24.05.2012 – Cold Wind Hour

We are starting this episode with Dwight Yoakam taking us again to Paradise as « he said ». The weather was rather cold in the last weeks in spite of the spring season. Hank III is stating that « The Wind Blew Cold ». We are further exploring what the Music City saviors Marty Stuart and Hank III recorded or covered from Nashville to Bakersfield. In Europe we have Be Bop Creek from Paris burning the stage. We are getting a shot of Merle Haggard though the bottle let him down and a glass of Waylon Jennings for a good-hearted woman. If Texas had Waylon and his band in Austin, it also has a lil’ ol’ band in Houston called ZZ Top that Dwight Yoakam is covering to close the show.
