Sorry to have to report this to all but it appears that Dickey is slowing down. From his website: Special Announcement from Dickey Betts In New York City, a place where Dickey Betts had had many great achievements, he played what will possibly become his last touring date on December 12, his 66th birthday. "Im not retiring from playing. Im sure there will be some great special events that Ill be at in the future. But for now, I look forward to waking up tomorrow with nothing on my schedule." After more than 40 years of constant touring its time for a well deserved break. Stay tuned for updates on the Great Southern Band members and their associated projects, as well as updates on Dickey himself. Happy Holidays to all Dickey's site: http://www.dickeybetts.com/index.php Things will never be the same for me. One of my heroes.
