Screw Youtube and Thank You

Check it out.....My youtube channel gets a little traction now and then (like 3000+ views of videos), but the most recent "When I Come Down" got over 12K views in a short period of time thanks to the power of social media, fans posting, purchased placements, ad placements and my sweet mama showing it to any stranger she meets. But hello! Youtube figured it was an automated bot system, so they took it down. I'm appealing, of course, but as a "courtesy" to me, Stupidtube put the video back up with a new URL and started it at zero (now it's at 200 since they restarted it). So, all of that being said, what I would like is for you to push this video harder than last time. Let them shut it down again! Why not!? Here's the new url. Watch it, share it, email it out, put it in your blog, your newsletter, play it a million times over, ask YOUR mama to show it to any stranger she meets. I'm proud of you and unhappy with Youtube and you should be too! Let's show them that we're real and that we ARE the GLEIGH MAFIA! Go, go, go!

On another note, I look forward to seeing my Austin peeps this Friday the 28th at 8pm at Strange Brew! It'll be just me with Stew on keys and one thousand of you in the seats! ;) It's going to be a really really fun show! Promise! Congrats to Strange Brew Loungeside for winning "Best Acoustic Venue," "Best Live Music Venue," and "Best All Ages Venue!" This is yet another reason why Friday is going to be amazing!

Oh and our new "Amazing" cap will be available at the show next Friday! Come get yours. We only have a few of them!

If you are located in Houston, mark your calendars! The band and I are at the Monalissa at Hotel Sorella April 11th and then Wendy Colonna and I are playing Anderson Fair together on May 31st! Tickets are on sale now!

Okie dokie, people! I luff ya.

What do my nephew, my birthday and Formula One™ have in common? Not much! But I thought I'd throw them all together in one message to you, my friend! My Nephew, Colter: I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your contributions, no matter how big or small! My brother has the opportunity to help this precious boy with a very successful stem cell treatment. We are asking for your contributions to help them make this happen. We've raised almost $7000! The goal is $22,000, so we are inching there, little by little, by the giving hearts of friends, family, fans and strangers. And consider it my birthday present! My actual birthday is November 1st! Yes, my mother went into labor on Halloween and I came out to see my aunts in costume and thought "THIS IS GOING TO BE FUUUUUUUN!" And it is! Life is great, often challenging, but I'm so thankful for all that I have, am and will be. Your support of my career has been a major blessing to me. So thank you! If you are in Austin, we will celebrate on November 4th at the One 2 One Bar at 8pm.1509 S. Lamar 78704 GONNA BE SPECIAL! And in Houston, we will celebrate a bit late: November 11th at Anderson Fair! Also a special treat! Lastly, some of you know that I spend a lot of my year preparing for a huge high end event I produce for the Formula One™ race weekend in Austin! This weekend (Oct 21 and 22) will be our 5th year of fabulous and we are benefiting the! If you would like to join us for this fancy affair, please use my special discount code for 20% off!
