What can I say? EVERYTHING just FIT together Saturday night with Kinky Friedman, logically speaking. Singer/Songwriter music, comedy, politics, important issues brought to light–we had it ALL!
Winnsboro got a full spectrum of entertainment; light-hearted humor, serious issues, stories from the past, comical lyrics mixed with fun melodies–it was all part of the show. We even had Winnsboro’s new Mayor, Tom Howard, do the Kinky introduction, to properly set the stage. Kinky plans to run for the Commissioner of Agriculture position, for the Texas Department of Agriculture, a position currently filled by Todd Staples. We got a glimpse of his platform Saturday night, and Kinky will be a serious contender!
Winnsboro’s own Kate Hearne did the honors as the opening act, assisted on percussion by Ashlyn Shanafelt. Kate’s career is just starting to gain momentum. Fresh out of college, she’s working on her first CD, residing in Fort Worth, and carving a place in the world of the singer/songwriter/musician–Kate is the complete package, and she certainly showed the full house at Crossroads that she’s been making great use of her time!
