Subject:  Re: Academy Of Texas Music Award to Mickey Newbury
Message:  It was quite a long day. I left Houston at 7 am, after only a few hours sleep, because they requested we be in Marshall by 10 am. After the ceremony I drove all the way in to Muscle Shoals.

There I was sweating the fact that I was half an hour late. I got there, and realized it didn't start until 2 pm!

I should have realized they were communicating with musicians, which means tell them to get there 4 hours earlier than you really need them.

I dedicated the award to Granny, for successfully coming out of open-heart surgery at 90 years old. Anybody who thinks they're tough should try that.
