Greetings again from Nashville's Oat Central... the home of countless
adventures, good times, and a lot of great music. 

Things have been hoppin' around here lately. In the recording studio, 
producer Steve Haggard and engineer Andrew Hooker are continuing 
work on the upcoming Garry Jackson album. (It'll be Garry's fourth 
Wild Oats Records release, and is due in early 2017.) 

Just a reminder: our acclaimed monthly Oat Songwriter Showcase
is held on the second Wednesday of each month. "The Oatcase" is
held at Nashville's Commodore Grille, and is now in its twelfth year.
The next showcase is comin' up on Wednesday, October 12th.

Also in the studio these days is our flagship artist Steve Haggard
working on his brand-new album. (It'll be his seventh.) Asked when
the new project will be finished, Mr. Haggard replied, "Good question".

Steve is also working on new tracks with the irrepressible Todd Elgin,
and planning sessions with one of our favorite Wild Oats artists, the
excellent singer/songwriter Bryon Russell. Both projects are being 
produced by Steve Haggard and engineered by Andrew Hooker.

Ah, it's time to plug our favorite radio program. It's none other than 
The Haggard & Haggard Radio Hour, hosted by Steve Haggard. This
excellent show is broadcast every Tuesday afternoon (4:00-5:00 PM, 
Central Time). In and around Nashville, you can catch the show on 
Radio Free Nashville / WRFN 107.1 FM & 103.7 FM.) You can listen 
live in streaming audio -- worldwide -- at www.radiofreenashville.org

Speaking of Steve Haggard and Andrew Hooker, they're launching a 
new internet TV show, "Pegram After Dark... Live At The Cave!" The
taping for the program's first episode took place recently... with very
special guests Walter Egan and Joel Alan Lehman.

In addition to the individual recording projects now underplay, we're
planning a compilation CD of all-new material by an assortment of our
Wild Oats Records artists. It'll be called The Class Of 2017, and will be 
released in January 2017. (Or maybe February.)

What's comin' up in the future, you ask? (Okay, you didn't actually
ask... but we'll tell you anyway.) As always, we have a whole bunch 
of irons in the fire. There are a couple of European tours in the works;
a new CD release from Kimberly King; the long-awaited live CD from
Steve Haggard, Joel Alan Lehman & The Nashville All-Stars, and a lot
more. So check back with us often.
