Label of love: Eddie Stout's on a mission

Great article on Dialtone Records out of Austin, who released the latest KM Williams CD "When I Rise" that's charting all over the world. That's the one that Andrea Dawson, Hash Brown, Washboard Jackson and myself are on as well.

Being an unpaid volunteer at KNON for over 11 years myself to present "Big Texas Blues", I understand and appreciate a guy like Eddie. Keeping the blues alive is certainly NOT about the money!
