Dave’s most requested program! Dressed as every proper Long Tall Texan should be, and singing Texas songs literally from A to Z, Dave charts the growth and development of our unique Texas perspective on the world. With tales of the Alamo, Apaches, and Aggies (and that’s just the “A”s!), Dave reflects the pride both native and adoptive Texans feel in our Lone Star State.
America’s treasury of heart-stirring patriotic songs grow even more meaningful to audiences who hear Dave’s re-telling of the courageous, humorous, and incredible stories behind their composing. From Yankee Doodle to God Bless America, with many stops in between, you’ll discover the common thread that unites these wonderful tunes: “American” ends in “I can!”
Tom Brokaw’s 1998 best-seller "The Greatest Generation" featured 1st-person accounts of America’s participation in World War II in a way that included history, humor, and inspiration. In fact, it had almost everything, except music! That’s where Dave comes in, with a mix of patriotic, romantic, and lighthearted selections from the WWII songbook, from This Is My Country to I’ll Never Smile Again to The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy Of Company B.
