Cody Canada and The Departed debut new song on Rolling Stone

Although not a new band having been around since late in 2010, Cody Canada and The Departed are a band well worthy of this recognition from Rolling Stone. They first brought us the sounds of Oklahoma songwriters in the top shelf tribute album "This Is Indian Land" in 2011, followed that up with a selection of originals featuring both Cody and then co-lead guitarist/vocalist Seth James with their fantastic record "Adventus" in 2012. Now The Departed; being made up of 50% Cross Canadian Ragweed members Cody Canada and bassist Jeremy Plato have come full circle with a new record that has a sound that will be familiar to long-time fans of Cody Canada. What I've heard of these new songs from their upcoming record "HippieLovePunk" so far there is a distinct sound that is not something you can label as "Ragweed", but a sound that is very distinctly that of Cody Canada.

Here is the Rolling Stone article by Andrew Leahey

As the frontman of Cross Canadian Ragweed, Cody Canada spent years swirling Southern rock, Dustbowl country and roadhouse roots music into songs that celebrated the ups and downs of life in middle America. He was the poster boy for the Red Dirt movement, a proud outsider who could camp out in the upper reaches of the country charts — and sell more than a million copies of the band's albums, to boot — without playing by the rules of the Nashville machine. Even the band's own breakup bucked convention, with the guys deciding to throw in the towel after releasing four Top 10 records in a row.

From Jake Whitman/Cynthia McFadden (NBC News)
As music legend Glen Campbell enters the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease, his family is giving the world a rare glimpse inside his battle with the disease.

Campbell’s wife of 32 years, Kim Woolen, recently took NBC’s Cynthia McFadden to visit her 78-year-old husband at a full-time care facility in Nashville, where the entertainer has been living since March.

Despite the progression of the disease, Campbell brightens when he sees his wife and amazingly, can still play the guitar. Experts say Alzheimer's patients often communicate in their "first language" as the disease progresses — for Campbell that language is music.

The five-time Grammy winner and Country Music Hall of Famer went public with his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in 2011, hoping to raise awareness about the devastating disease.

"We need to let people know about this disease, we need to do something about it," Woolen remembers her husband telling her at the time. "He really made himself vulnerable, because he wanted to make a difference."

Campbell has not performed in public since November of 2012. Today, his record label released his final studio recording: a heart-breaking ballad, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”

The single was recorded in January 2013 — just months after Campbell stopped performing in public.

Campbell’s wife tells McFadden that her husband’s doctors have told her he is now nearing the end of the 6th stage of Alzheimer’s, and requires 24-hour professional care. The disease is measured in 7 stages, with the last being the most severe.

"He's still Glen Campbell, and he still loves and feels and expresses joy and sadness," Woolen says. "I thank God each day that I have with him that he still knows who I am."

Campbell announced he would head out on a three-to-five-week goodbye tour, but ended up completing 151 concerts over a year and a half. The journey is chronicled in a soon-to-be- released documentary, "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me."

In scenes that will be both painful and familiar to the 5 million American families walking the same path, the film captures Campbell's struggles with memory loss.

Troubadour Song Night with Dennis Jay

Dennis Jay is starting a weekly songwriter open mic night at The Big T Roadhouse which is Dale Watson's club down in St. Hedwig, TX just east of San Antonio. The Big T Roadhouse was formerly known as Big T Icehouse and was run from 1978 until 2012 when Lorene Thomas (or 'Ms T') died of lung cancer. Dale Watson purchased this establishment and is keeping its roadside honky-tonk personality intact. Although I haven't visited Big T yet, from what I understand it's a really cool place to hang out.

But back to the "troubadour song night" that Dennis Jay will be hosting. Signups each Saturday will start at 7pm, and people will perform between 8 and 11pm. Dennis says this is a night of Ameripolitan roots music, with classic country, folk, blues solo singer/songwriters and he even welcomes cover tunes as well. Come try out your new songs, polish up on some old ones or just come and listen while you drink a cold beer or three.
