When you’re an American city known for your music scene, anything can happen at any local watering hole on any night of the week!  Billboard magazine claims Garth Brooks surprised fans on Friday night when he played a surprise show at Austin, Texas’ world famous Broken Spoke Dance Hall. He performed a 45-minute acoustic show between sets by the house band. I’m certain those in attendance found it worth every penny of their cover charge!
Some sad news to pass along today.  The NY Post claims Glen Campbell can no longer play guitar because of his Alzheimer’s disease. Glen’s wife says he will occasionally play his air guitar and sing.
