Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Oklahoma! First of all, there's a steady stream of orders for the Tractors Christmas records. We're getting to all of them as fast as we can. If you're still thinking of ordering, please hurry. We've run out once already, but managed to get another shipment in. I'm not sure how long those will last. Also, you can download The Santa Claus Boogie music video on iTunes.
After nineteen years, we have sold The Church in Tulsa. Any sadness is more than cancelled out by the excitement about the move to "The Farm" and the new studio we're building there. I can hardly wait until new recording starts at the studio in the woods. Farm Music!
Though all projects were temporarily set aside while we concentrated on the daunting task of the sale of the building and the big move of the equipment, I'm happy to report that a new Tractors record is finished and waiting for release sometime early next year. The album features songs and performances by the two Tractors big brothers: J.J. Cale and Leon Russell. Cale keeps saying it's the best Tractors record ever.
Merry Christmas from Pawnee County!
