Hung out with two legends tonight: Marty Stuart and his wife, Country Music Hall of Fame member Connie Smith. Marty and I turned on the official holiday lights of Elvis Presley's Graceland.
Visited Elvis Presley's Graceland today with Gabi, my band, crew, and manager. This was Gabi's first visit and my second. Always inspiring. There will never be another like my hero ELVIS PRESLEY.
Earlier during this week of CMA Awards activities:
(photo 1) -I surprised my producer and frequent co-writer Frank Rogers at the ASCAP Awards when he was honored for "Five More Minutes" (I was honored at the BMI Awards the next night).
(photo 2) - While at the ASCAP Awards, I met its President and Chairman, who also happens to be legendary songwriter (and actor) Paul Williams. Among the songs he has written are "Evergreen" (Barbra Streisand), "Rainy Days and Mondays" and "We've Only Just Begun" (Carpenters), "Rainbow Connection" (the Muppets), "An Old Fashioned Love Song" (Three Dog Night), and so many more.
A great night celebrating songwriters!
