Hello. My name is Rick Teverbaugh. I am well into middle age and
have been writing professionally for over 30 years. I write sports
for a living and write about music for enjoyment. The past several
years I have written features and reviews for Country Standard Time.
Some of my most memorable face-to-face music-related interviews
have been with Dick Clark and Kris Kristofferson. My love affair
with music not exactly mainstream country began with the album
"Pickin Up the Pieces" by Poco and the first two albums by Gram Parsons.
I avidly investigated the birth of the Americana genre and was a
staunch follower of No Depression magazine. The more people who are
personally exposed to this music, the more it will be appreciated
for its creativity, honesty and purity. That's the end goal I have
in creating this blog.
Song that best sums up my life and personality, "It Ain't Easy
Being Me," by Chris Knight.
