The Quarterly Hurricane Highway Awards - Quarter One

The other day it occurred to me that I wanted to do a recap of the quarter.  I am not sure who actually reads every post I do or who is an occasional reader.  The ACM's or CMA's was on the other day, I didn't watch it.  It got me thinking though that maybe I should do an awards ceremony of sorts.  I am thinking I will try to do this every quarter to recap some of the golden moments of the blog so far.  This will also catch up those of you who don't read it all the time.   (I am sure that is only a few of you, right? Right???) So welcome friends, family, frenemies, and who ever else reads this to....

  • Kick Ass Musician of the Quarter - Female : Courtney Patton - Look for an album from her to coming in May. Also you can see her with Jamie Wilson and Brandy Zdan at Gruene Hall 4/18.
  • Kick Ass Musician of the Quarter - Male : Will Arrington - Look for him and his band to be playing in San Marcos and hopefully soon all over.  He also will have a new album out soon. 
  • Kick Ass Band of the Quarter - Copper and Glass - This is a band that I found out of Cali. Word on the street is they are coming to Texas soon.  Give them a listen, good stuff coming from those guys.
