We lost Jim McCaskill in Albuquerque . Jim was a close personal friend, and co-produced
Cool and Unusual Punishment and Texas Fruit Shack. Jim was a country music fan in every sense. Happy trails, Jimmy Mac.
Feel free to call me if you knew him.

If you knew him, you'd never forget him.
They still talk about him every place we play in the Ft. Worth area.
Happy landings, my brother

American Shadows: The Songs of Moon Mullican
"The definitive tribute to a legend, Moon Mullican. Five stars to The Cornell Hurd Band!"
- Joe Baker, MTD Radio, Ruidoso, NM
Another death: Bert Winston: producer, American Shadows. 3-08-10
I'd known of Bert for years. He was the guy behind Tommy Morrell's records. TheHow the West Was Swung series that Tommy and Bert Winston produced remain, in my opinion, the absolute best Western Swing records ever.
Tommy Morrell joined us on our Cool and Unusual Punishment CD.
Bert called me completely out of the blue one day in 2008 and by the end of our very brief conversation, he'd agreed to fund the "Moon Mullican project." Apparently Tommy had spoken highly of us. I considered it something akin to a miracle.
The single consideration he asked was a dedication to Tommy. I had planned on it already.
We played his birthday party in November of 2008. We had a great time.
Bert was a true gentleman, and he truly loved Western Swing, including our unruly bunch.
To quote Barbara Martin: "The music community is devastated as he was a major supporter and benefactor of our music..."
