Oklahoma Gazette: Best in Folk!

John was very pleased and grateful to be voted “Best in Folk” by the readers of the Oklahoma Gazette, in this year’s Woody Awards.

Back in January, our editor-in-chief received an email from former Sen. Andrew Rice that, in part, sang the praises of Okemah musician and Blue Door regular John Fullbright, all of 23 years old. “I saw him play last night and he is amazing. Jimmy Webb said the kid ‘has it.’ He is embracing the whole Woody Guthrie tradition and populism in how he writes,” Rice wrote, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Thanks, everybody!
