Looking at the career and achievements of Gary Nicholson, it’s a wonder the man has ever gotten a full night’s sleep. The word “prolific” seems paltry when considering his talents and scope. Nicholson’s songwriting and co-writing credits alone include more than 600 compositions recorded by greats across a wealth of genres, and a short list of recent cuts includes: “He Won’t Ever Be Gone,” a heartbreaking tribute to Merle Haggard that closes Willie Nelson’s new LP God’s Problem Child; the title track of the new Taj Mahal/Keb’ Mo’ collaborative album Don’t Leave Me Here; and the title cut on Give More Love by Ringo Starr, with whom Nicholson has been collaborating periodically since 2003.
Gary will be performing at The Bugle Boy on July 8th at 8 PM (doors open 7 PM). Tickets are $22.00 and can be purchased HERE. Everyone from age 12 and up may attend (parents must discern whether the performance is child appropriate).
