I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the one they call Shakey Graves, and let me be the first to say he is a true American icon. They guy exudes serenity and peace, while his music harkens to your soul and brings about a flood of emotion as you hang on his every word. The city of Austin, TX has even declared Feb 9 to be ‘Shakey Graves Day’ in honor of this legend-in-the-making. If you haven’t heard of ‘ol Shakey, don’t worry you are not alone. However, once you’ve heard him you won’t soon forget the voice and the way he seems to captivate an audience from the first note. If you are lucky enough to meet the man in person as I have, well then you’ll probably be telling your kids about it someday…as I will.
