It is with great regret that I announce that I will not be able to join the amazing house band at this year's AMA Award Show. I was honored to be asked by Buddy Miller to be part of this stellar band and I am also very honored to be nominated in the Instrumentalist of the Year category. As many of you know, I am spending much of 2014 out on tour with Jack White. I'm very happy to be a part of the Jack White Team.....and the team is playing Fenway Park on the same night as the AMA Award Show. Wouldn't be right to let the team down. Fenway Park---pretty cool.

My thanks to Buddy, Jed and EVERYONE at The Americana Music Association I hope to continue to be involved with this vital, musical community for years to come. I wish everyone a great night AND Conference. ---All The Best, Fats


Go Jane Go, the self-titled release from the group made up of Kieran Kane, David Francey and Lucas Kane, is now available on CD or as a download from CD Baby! Recorded in the living room of an Australian farmhouse, it's a natural, organic blend of the three musicians' talents that sounds as if you are sitting around the coffee table with them in a living room jam. Released on the heels of a successful Australian tour by the group, the album is a wonderful blend of three brilliant musicians' work. The cover art is a portrait of the band by Kieran.
