Sheryl Crow was on the Rachael Ray Show this morning promoting her new cookbook, If it makes you healthy. She’s a mother of two and takes her four year old, Wyatt, to school every day she’s not touring. She plays Ray LaMontagne for her four year old in the car. I want to play Ray LaMontagne for my four year old son!
Instead, I play Ray LaMontagne for my two year old dog, Ray LaMontagne. In the middle of June 2010 I drove more than an hour to collect the love of my life. Months beforehand, I made up mind to get a dog to name after my favorite bearded singer/songwriter. We drove back home, after spending $90 at PetSmart, listening to his namesake.
I’m trekking up to Cincinnati this June for a Ray LaMontagne show and I hope for the opportunity to sneak backstage to tell the Bearded One that I admire him so much I named my dog after him. It’ll be more rewarding than any Emmy I’m sure.
Ray LaMontagne, the dog, is now licking himself. Don’t worry, I’ll post a pic over on his blog. The fans will love it!
