The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra Lassos Todd Fritsch For “Salute to America’s Cowboys” On February 25

Houston, TX (January 10, 2007) – The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra has lassoed Texas recording artist Todd Fritsch for a “Salute To America’s Cowboys” at 2 p.m. on February 25. The FBSO chose Fritsch after hearing his music - and learning that he is an authentic cowboy - and the pairing is a natural fit. The concert, which will include classic western movie themes (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly; Hang ‘Em High; The Magnificent Seven), is the orchestra’s first cowboy-themed event, and will be held at the Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre (Stafford, Texas). As the symphony’s special guest, Todd will perform several original tunes, including his European hit, “Bob Wills Song;” his tribute to the late Chris LeDoux, “Cowboy Legacy;” and the kickin’ western swing number, “Five Mornings Down.”

Fritsch admits that the symphony is not his typical performance venue; you are more likely to see Todd on large stages such as CMA MusicFest (Nashville) and Billy Bob’s At Disney Village (Paris, France), and favorite Texas honky tonks like the Armadillo Palace (Houston). Todd has traveled over 150,000 miles in support of his current CD, TODD FRITSCH, and has won worldwide acclaim with his hits, “I’ve Got Mexico,” “Small Town Radio,” and “Every Honky Tonkin’ Hero (Has His Day).” His current single, “What’s Wrong With Me” (from a soon-to-be- released Diamond Music Group/Spinville Records CD) is already creating a stir at radio stations around the globe.

The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. John Ricarte, is celebrating fifteen years of performing symphonic music for the community. The full-size orchestra, complete with brass, woodwind, percussion, and string section, consists of approximately 60 talented and dedicated musicians primarily from the local area. Add one singing cowboy, and you’ve got yourself a great Sunday. Join Todd Fritsch and the FBSO at 2 p.m. on February 25 in a musical salute to America’s cowboys. Ticketing information is available at or by calling 281-276-9642.

With a new Lucinda Williams album this fall, her most rapturously acclaimed and best-selling album to date receives the expanded Deluxe Edition treatment.  The two-CD Car Wheels On A Gravel Road - Deluxe Edition (Mercury/Lost Highway/UMe), released October 24, 2006, adds a pair of previously unreleased studio tracks plus an alternate version of "Still I Long For Your Kiss" heard in The Horse Whisperer and an entire previously unreleased 1998 live performance to a newly remastered edition of the singer-songwriter's most celebrated and beloved album.

Six years since her previous album, 1998's long-anticipated Car Wheels On A Gravel Road was worth the wait.  The 13-song collection's passionate, sharply detailed accounts of love, loss and longing were matched by the deceptively laid-back intensity of Williams' performances and those of guest artists that included Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Charlie Sexton, Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller and the E Street Band's Roy Bittan.  Topping many year-end critics polls and landing Williams her first gold record, the album also won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album, despite being her least folkish work.  A masterwork of roots rock woven through with folk, honky-tonk country and blues, the album (her fifth) marked her artistic and commercial breakthrough after a near 20-year recording career.

Augmenting the original album on Disc One are two outtakes from the album's initial 1995 Austin sessions--the Williams original "Out Of Touch" (which she would re-record for 2001's Essence) and a stripped-down reading of the 1920s blues classic "Down The Big Road Blues"--and the alternate "Still I Long For Your Kiss."

Disc Two captures a spirited live performance, recorded July 11, 1998 at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia for WXPN's "Live At The World Café" radio show.  Featuring Williams' then-current touring band, the set encompasses nine numbers from Car Wheels On A Gravel Road (the title track, "Metal Firecracker," "Right In Time," "Drunken Angel," "Greenville" "Still I Long For Your Kiss," "2 Kool 2 Be 4-Gotten," "Can't Let Go" and "Changed The Locks") and four earlier favorites ("Pineola," "Something About What Happens When We Talk," "Joy" and "Hot Blood").  The concert as well as the Disc One bonus tracks have also been newly digitally remastered.

What was said of Car Wheels On A Gravel Road in 1998 is still true today: "In a world inundated with cookie-cutter, Lilith-ready wimps," wrote Entertainment Weekly, "there's enough gravel on Williams' wheels to fill a West Texas dump truck."
