Gary Nicholson and Lee Roy Parnell, "Tin Pan South"
Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter Gary Nicholson celebrates his birthday tonight at Dosey Doe in the Woodlands. Nicholson is known primarily as a songwriter, having had more than 450 different songs cut by an ridiculous array of artists across almost all popular genres: Bonnie Raitt, James Cotton, John Mayall, Irma Thomas, Fleetwood Mac, Dave Edmunds, BB King, Neil Diamond, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Dixie Chicks, Ann Murray, etc. - the list is unlistable. And for the past quarter-century, Nicholson has been a constant on Delbert McClinton’s records.
What many don’t know is what an excellent live performer and string-ripping guitarist Nicholson is. For his birthday bash, according to Dosey Doe owner Steve Said, “there’s no telling who might drop in in the special guest category.” According to Said, the audience can also expect Nicholson to do some of his alter-ego ‘Whitey Johnson’ material. - William Michael Smith
