I'm going to interview Willis Alan Ramsey.
That news probably doesn't rock anyone's world but mine, but getting this interview is a watershed moment for me.
Of the beginning of his career, Lyle Lovett has said, "I wanted to be Willis Alan Ramsey."
Ramsey wrote Lovett's hit, "That's Right, You're Not From Texas," with his wife, Alison Rogers, in 1996.
Both Shawn Colvin and Waylon Jennings covered "Satin Sheets."
And, okay, I'll give it up - he wrote Captain and Tenille's "Muskrat Love," but get a copy of Ramsey's CD and find out how the song was *supposed* to sound.
His ballad "Angel Eyes" is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written.
For years, fans and critics have waitied for a second CD. Now, it looks like their wait is over. Ramsey has plans to release "Gentilly" soon.
And, I'm going to talk to him about it - and about what he's been doing for the past 37 years.
