No, it's not what you think -- it's just that the HandStamp folks broke the news that local old-school country diva Miss Leslie, who's utterly phenomenal, is giving away autographed copies of her 2008 album, Between the Whiskey and the Wine to anybody who sends her their email addy (to be put on her mailing list, natch). (Thanks, Joey & Sara!)
Check either her website or Myspace page for details, then get to sending. While I sadly have yet to hear Whiskey (yeah, I put my addy in, too), I've seen her and her Juke-Jointers live a couple of times now, and they're awesome. She's one of the few musicians I can willingly drag my Patsy Cline-loving wife out to see, which should say something about how good she is (the only other people The Wife'll leave the house for, these days, are Okkervil River or Sharon Jones).
Of course, you can always check Miss Leslie and the Juke-Jointers out live and in-person -- they'll be playing this coming Friday, January 9th at someplace I've never heard of called Aubrey's (774 West Gulf Bank Rd.), starting at 9PM. Good, old-fashioned, classic-yet-unique country; you won't be sorry, trust me.
