    SAM'S JAMS happens weekly Sat. afternoons, 1-3 PM. Ya know, with 55,000 or so songwriters in Nashville, too many great ones slip through the cracks of the music business machinery. All we can do is be fortunate enough to support them and their journeys. As unique and identifiable as one could ever be is the great Cowboy Slim. He has paid his dues and his style is totally his own...a culmination of folk, Americana and bluesiness. It's my great pleasure to host him as my featured guest for a two-hour show. You will be glad you came for this one. Great cajun food, intimate atmosphere and spontaneous vibe. No cover, free parking. Early birds get the best seats in this intimate venue. Thanks in advance for inviting your friends and sharing this!
