'Waitin' for the Sun'
There you go Poconuts, you're the first to hear the title for the solo project. The album's in the finishing stages. Joe Hardy is mixing the songs this week. Jack has been my right hand man with many of the recording details. The album art is being formatted and a new 'Rusty Young' website is in the works. We definitely want to keep this poconut site active and now that this project is winding down, I should have more time for updates. I'm glad many of you check out the Poco related facebook pages and are getting excited for the 50 years celebration. I've got to thank Mary for keeping up with all that social media stuff. She keeps me in the loop. As we've mentioned, we're collecting email addresses to send updates about the solo album. Just send a message to
Many of you have asked about the book. It's moved to the front burner and I'll be working on it next. The stories are written, I just need to work on a few transitions and of course an ending. It doesn't seem like Poco will ever end, but Mary tells me I better finish the book while I'm still here because I may not like the ending she gives it if I leave it unpublished when I travel to the great beyond.

Rusty: Thank you for the post. Congratulations to you for still creating and performing new music. Hope your trip to the "great unknown" is many years off, but when you do depart, please take the pedal steel with you. When I get there I'd like to listen to some great music. Until then, these are exciting times for the band, past and present, and its fans. Enjoy it all. Looking forward to 2018. Proud to be a past, present, and future fan of such a great group of musicians.

Love the album title! I'm betting there might be a title track of the same name.
Lots of great info from the journal, and of course I hear that same humble guy who sounds like he feels pretty lucky to be still creating art and entertaining after all these years, all while surrounded by equally talented friends and a supportive partner in life.
Navy Hymn- O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go.
