Any Country/Western fans out there?

Hey there!

I am planning to come down from Paris in a few months to live permanently in the south. I was wondering if anyone knows of country/western associations, I've heard there's one in Juan les Pins or nearby. I am a country singer and would love to think that there were people out there who share the same interests as myself.

Don't hesitate to contact me all you cowboys 'n' gals.

Randy ... where in the Republic of Texas do you hail from? Do be in touch ... and let me know where you're located ... I'm near Cannes ... still lookin' for the perfect CDA Margarita (drink, not pizza) and TexMex.

As to the original question, some good answers so far ... been to a few. As far as I know, the big one is in late summer in Cagnes Sur Mer ... the even had Toy from Marshal Tucker a few years back (for those that still recall how it actually started after "Sons of the Pioneers" and pre "Red Headed Stranger" ... but Merle hung on right?). But as a fellow, pro C&W recording artist hiding out in the badland of the CDA ... ain't much happening here on that front ... they love the brothers from Jacksonville's "Sweet Home" but forget (or don't know/care) from where it sprung ... but hey, that's the deal isn't it ... even the Stones/Beatles couldn't make it happen (just imagine if Rocky Racoon fell back in his room, only to find "Wild Horses" ... there's a song in there somewhere).

Enough ramblin' ... time to hit the sack ... do keep the string going ... does my heart good to see the traffic ... who knows, maybe we need to organize a "C&W Night" soon.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and may the wind always be at your back,

RC

Hi, I also know of a woman who does the country western dances in the area, she'll hook you up with others, too. Maybe you can be the singer at their next shin dig! (email me and I'll send you her #, I don't want to make it public for her.)

BTW, I was raised on country, back in TX, in the states. Welcome to the Riviera!

If you can get Riviera Radio to put on some country now that would be something!!! Lord knows I've tried...

You bet !! Tammy Wynette or Shania Twain ?  Willie Nelson or Johnny Cash ? Bluegrass or Blues ? Lou Reed or Chet Atkins ?
