Sad for the loss of this animation pioneer. Among so many other characters, Bud drew Toy Story’s “Woody. Later, I produced the music for the animated short "Boundin.” It appeared before the Disney / Pixar movie The Incredibles. The Pixar gang called me, then came to Nashville to record the track for the short. Bud wrote the script and narrated the monologue. I’ll treasure our time working together, talking about animation, and taking him to George Gruhn’s to check out the banjos. Rest In Peace, Bud. Thanks for Woody and the lamb who learned humility.

The early Pixar employee also created counting cartoons for 'Sesame Street' and voiced characters in 'The Incredibles' and 'Winnie the Pooh.'

Too Slim’s Dream…or was it?

Too Slim, bespectacled bassist for Riders In The Sky, told reporters today he “had a dream last night.”

“It was so real,” enthused A...merica’s Favorite Funnyman. “We were in a Roy Rogers movie. We were singing in an old western theatre, and Roy and Smiley Burnett and this cute cowgirl were in the audience, and it was black and white, and we were yodeling and Roy looked like he liked it.”

And that was all? “No, that’s not all. Here’s the best part. So I go over to my computer to send out some orders for Too Slim’s Mercantile, and I hit enter and this movie clip plays. And it’s my dream! Swear to God! Weirdest thing. Man, first thing tonight I’m going to go to sleep again,” His Slimness concluded.

Thanks to a special arrangement with representatives of Too Slim’s unconscious brain, the dreamcast is presented here in its entirety. Enjoy.

Off to the studio, but today's commute is pretty long. I'm traveling to China to continue the last of three Disney projects I've been working on for months. This one is for Shanghai Disneyland. The first time I worked in China was 50 years ago (those 50 years sure went by quickly, too.)

Ever generous, Garth has invited us to dinner and to his show tonight at the Bridgestone Arena. So proud of all our fellow Grand Ole Opry Member has accomplishe...d, and of the man he is. Thanks, Pal.
Back home after a wonderful evening of great dinner and fabulous Garth and Trisha show. Not an empty seat in the arena. Seeing him in concert is almost as memorable as the first time I recorded with Garth.

I can't think of, without smiling, the time we were in Hawaii at the same time, and all got together after Don Ho's show at the Don's Polynesian Palace dressing room. What a great time. God Bless, Mel. You were "one in a million."

One of the greatest musical stars has passed. RIP Mel Tillis. I'll miss you, but I'll never forget you.

The memorial was held today for one of the finest ladies I've ever known. Irene and her husband Walter have been my close and dear friends for over half a centu...ry. The kindness you've shown will never be forgotten. Patti and I will miss you, Irene, but your memory will live in our hearts forever. Rest In Peace. Heartfelt sympathies to Walter, Rick, and Cheryl.
