So I was walking back from lunch a little while ago, passing by the cool java spot in downtown Raleigh, when I was flagged down by none other than country singer Thad Cockrell -- newly svelte, and relocated back to the Triangle after a several-year sojourn in Nashville. The move was so recent that Cockrell's MySpace still identifies Nashville as his hometown. But he says he's already planning to do some recording to turn his "To Be Loved" mini-album into a full-length, and his first performance since moving back will be an Aug. 16 all-ages show at the Pour House. Meantime, head on over to his aforementioned MySpace to hear some of the "To Be Loved" tracks.
Renewed acquaintances: Thad Cockrell
