Singing Texan crime novelist Kinky Friedman performed to a packed house at Memo Club in St Kilda on his eighth Australian tour.

The Kinkster, 71, found Memo after debuting at the National Press Club in Canberra.

And, unlike the Canberra concert, where the ABC-TV telecast was truncated as he reached his climax the Memo gig did not suffer concert interuptus.

Kinky hit the Acland Street car free strip after reaping what he sewed at Harvester Moon on The Bellarine.

NU COUNTRY TV HOST TROY RECALLS JOINTS
WITH WILLIE AND MERLE

Troy Cassar-Daley has revealed he had joints with Octogenarian Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard on his acclaimed 10th album Things I Carry Around .

The Nu Country TV host performs Smoked With Willie And Merle on the disc but, sadly, there's no video of the song.

Instead we feature Troy's video of the title track in Series #31 that premieres Saturday September 25 at 9.30 pm on Channel 31, Digital 44.

At 46 the celebrated singer-songwriter is well qualified to reveal feats with the legendary duo on their down under sojourns.

Troy, father of two, inhaled like many peers but few could boast of exhaling by teaching the Red Headed Stranger, now 83 , to play didgeridoo.

It all happened when Troy shared stages with The Highwaymen and childhood mentor Merle, who died on his 79th birthday - April 6.

CLICK HERE for Troy's new CD feature story in The Diary.

NU COUNTRY TV HOST AND BENEFACTOR KACEY JONES RIP AT 66

Acclaimed singer-songwriter, comedienne, producer, Nu Country TV host and showcase headliner Kacey Jones has died at 66 on the first day of spring in Nashville.

In 2014 Kacey was diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer - instead of chemo, radiation and surgery she opted for alternative, holistic therapies.

She launched a Go-Fund-Me account to pay for these and entered hospice care early in August.

Despite chronic pain she was well enough in 2015 to compete on TV's America's Got Talent where she performed her timely parody Donald Trump's Hair - title track of her 2009 album - that we also featured on Nu Country TV .

Kacey and fellow singer-songwriter Becky Hobbs performed our showcase at the Noise Bar at the historic Railway Hotel , in Brunswick on February 1, 2008, with local artists the Bona Fide Travellers .

Their concert was featured on Nu Country TV just two years after she hosted our TV show from Austin, Texas, in 2006 while performing the annual Mickey Newbury festival with singing actor Waylon Payne.

KEITH URBAN PATERNAL PRAISE ON ALBUM AND TOUR

Expatriate Australasian superstar Keith Urban's appearance with John Mellencamp at the 49th CMA Awards in Nashville on November 4 last year was tinged with sadness.

It was just a month before his major musical influence - his father Robert - died on December 5 after a long battle with cancer while he was making his 10th album Ripcord .

The Urban patriarch, who died at Mountain Creek near Caloundra on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, moved to Australia from Whangarei in New Zealand with his wife Marienne and their two sons Shane and Keith and settled in Caboolture.

“My dad is the catalyst for me living in America,” revealed Urban, 48, who honoured his dad in new song Blue Ain't Your Colour.

< Keith & Bob Urban

Keith will perform the song from Ripcord when he headlines the Deni Ute Muster on September 30 and returns in December for a national tour with Carrie Underwood.

WIN ALAN JACKSON CD ANGELS AND ALCOHOL

We have great news to warm up your winter - thanks to Sony Music country promotions chief Gary English.

You can win Georgian superstar Alan Jackson's huge selling 20th album Angels And Alcohol that debuted at #1 on Billboard charts in July.

Jackson , 56, and originally managed by expat Australasian promoter and publisher Barry Coburn, won a huge following on his two Australian tour for Rob Potts and Michael Chugg.

The singer wrote seven of the songs on his new album that is rooted in the traditional honky tonk sounds of the south with a nod to bluegrass.

They included his latest hit Jim And Jack And Hank from a disc that also name-checks Tom Sawyer and famed Beat generation novelist Jack Kerouac.

Jackson recorded the album with Texas born fellow singer-songwriter Keith Stegall - his long-time producer, also instrumental in the careers of John Anderson, Zac Brown Band, Clay Walker and the late George Jones.

WIN TOBY KEITH CD DRINKS AFTER WORK

Oklahoma superstar Toby Keith is making his debut Australian tour in March and we have his 19th CD Drinks After Work for new members and renewing members.

Universal Music promotions chief Jordan Wiggins has provided copies of the huge selling disc to help promote the multi-millionaire's tour.

Keith, 53, and father of three including singer daughter Krystal, headlines the 7th CMC Rocks The Hunter festival from March 14-16.

He also plays Rod Laver Arena with Kellie Pickler and the Texan Eli Young Band on March 19.
Drinks After Work is dedicated to Keith's late bass player-bandleader Chuck Goff, who died in a Cleveland County car accident in February, and features the emotional anthem Chuckie's Gone.

It was déjà vu - on March 24, 2001 (Keith's 17th wedding anniversary), his father was killed in a car accident on Interstate 35.

That event and the September 11 attacks in 2001 prompted Keith to write Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue - a song about his father's patriotism and faith in the United States.

Chuckie's Gone leads off with lyrics about his fellow Oklahoman Chuck not being around for the spring tornadoes that defined so much of 2013 for multi-millionaire Keith and his home state.

You can win Drinks After Work by becoming a Nu Country TV member or renewing your membership.
