Chris Knight in town Jan. 29: Admired singer-songwriter will perform at Cheatham Street Warehouse

Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach.

And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say.

Life's Surprises with Gary Smith: Uh oh as life flies by quickly

A few days after Christmas, my daughter and I were snow skiing down a hill at Sleeping Giant Ski Area in Wyoming.
She asked me how many years that I thought it would be until her son, William, could start skiing. He is 21 months old.
He was bundled up in the ski lodge, sitting warmly by the fire in the lodge with family. Safe, warm and cozy.
I said, “Two years until he is old enough. You started skiing at 3 and 1/2 years old. Your brother started at 3 and 1/2. So William only has two more years until he will be able to ski.”
