Despite the turmoil of 2020, take some time to disappear into these songs on Trail Mix – or any songs, really – and remember that there is so much for which we can all still be thankful. Find a friend and share a moment or two, remember to stay connected, and reach out to those you love and tell them they are on your heart. And share a little of that love with these incredible artists on Trail Mix. Order a record or attend a virtual concert. These musicians are still putting out for us, so let’s make sure they know we appreciate it. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors toured hard in the latter part of 2019 behind their latest release, the critically claimed Dragons, and they were wise to record the group’s show at Knoxville’s famed Tennessee Theater. The gorgeous room played like a virtual hometown show for Holcomb; a true son of Tennessee, Holcomb is Memphis born and an alum of the University of Tennessee. The spirit of an appreciative crowd, consisting of holdovers from his early Knoxville days and more recent converts and disciples, as well as an inspired Holcomb, are beautifully captured on the band’s latest release, Live at the Tennessee Theater. On display is the dynamic stage presence of The Neighbors and the songcraft that has propelled Holcomb to the top of the acoustic music world. Trail Mix is happy to be featuring a live rendition of “Dragons” this month. 3:52 The Late Great John Prine Blues Will Kimbrough 3:59 4:48 3:03 4:10 Fine Stephanie Lambring Audio PlayerHowlin RainRainbow TroutUse Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.00:000:00 / 4:27 St. Stephen Holly Bowling Can’t Look Away The Suitcase Junket 3:32 Rainbow Trout Howlin Rain Embed Black Cats and Crows Ward Davis Split Lip Nathaniel Bellows Speak Of Love Farmer Dave Scher 7:27 Be sure to dig deep into this month’s mix and check out tunes from Pylon, The Wild Feathers, Ward Davis, The Suitcase Junket, Nathaniel Bellows, Howlin Rain, Selena Rosanbalm, Yacht Club 101, Stephanie Lambring, Jules Shear, Brad Brooks, Rachel Brooke, Dan Horne, Emily Brown, Farmer Dave Scher, and Source & Method. There’s a lot of goodness here. Long known as a songwriter of the highest pedigree, Holcomb has been out on the road with his band, The Neighbors, in support of the group’s eight LPs for well over a decade. Recent adventures also include curating the Magnolia Record Club, which my son belonged to for a few months and features records each month by a fantastic array of roots musicians, and founding the Moon River Music Festival, a barnburner of a musical weekend that often sells out in hours. 4:10 4:08 Three Things Cannot Be Long Hidden – Source and Method – 02 Blues, No Cure American Dream Larry Keel last_img read more

Chattanooga’s Tuoyo plays with single mother in mind, ranks 3rd nationally in blocks

first_imgJanina Tuoyo would say she had a headache. She’d claim she wasn’t feeling well. She’d even tell her bosses that an emergency required her to go pick up one of her sons.But they were all excuses to get out of work.And each one she gave was so her youngest son, Justin Tuoyo, would be on time to his AAU basketball practice an hour and a half away. “She used to have to leave work two hours early to bring me to practice,” Tuoyo said. “That’s what she would do once out of the week.”When Tuoyo, now a sophomore forward for Chattanooga, was 9 years old, his father, Anthony, was killed in a car accident. Janina Tuoyo raised her three sons on her own with help from her sister. But growing up in a single-parent home brought its struggles for Tuoyo, and his mother maintained three jobs when he was in high school so he could get an education and go to college to play basketball.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow, the 6-foot-10 Tuoyo ranks third in the country in total blocks and is a driving force down low for a Chattanooga (18-9, 11-3 Southern). Tuoyo perseveres through every challenge basketball brings him with his mother in mind and his ultimate goal is to make a living where he can give back what she has given to him. “I know he wants to retire me, that’s his dream,” Janina Tuoyo said. “He doesn’t want me to be working so hard.”When he was a kid, Tuoyo not only played basketball, but was great at baseball too, he said. His father wasn’t at Tuoyo’s basketball games that often, but made almost every single baseball one.But when Anthony Tuoyo passed away, playing baseball just didn’t feel right anymore.“I tried to go back out and it wasn’t the same no more,” Tuoyo said. “I didn’t love it no more so I just gave it up.”Tuoyo even stopped playing basketball for four or five months, but was eventually drawn back in by a former coach.Meanwhile, his mother worked as a real estate agent, at a car dealership and at Wal-Mart. When Tuoyo returned home from school, his mother wouldn’t be there, and it wouldn’t be until 10 p.m. that she got back.“The way she worked, I knew it was hard for her, she didn’t want to do it all the time,” Tuoyo said. “She did everything with money expenses that we needed to travel for AAU or make a game in high school. Whatever she could do, she’d try and do it.”After one year of college at Virginia Commonwealth, Tuoyo wanted to transfer. Will Wade — a former assistant with the Rams who recruited Tuoyo — happened to take the head coaching job at Chattanooga at the time. On the first day of his new job, Wade said, Tuoyo signed the papers to transfer there.Wade had, and still has, a thriving relationship with both Tuoyo and his mother that has roots five years back. He estimated that around 70 percent of the players he recruits come from single-parent homes, and knew that Tuoyo would be a perfect fit for his new team.“A lot of our kids come from rougher backgrounds. I’m a blue-collar guy. I’m drawn to those types of kids,” Wade said. “Our program’s set up to help those guys who do a lot of things off the court with life lessons and different other activities that are set up to help those guys grow and become really good people once they graduate.”Now that he’s found a fit at Chattanooga, Tuoyo says his goal is to graduate, get a degree and help his mother once he gets out of school. There will be times when Tuoyo hits a roadblock at practice, but Wade reminds his big man of one thing, that his mom overcame tough times as well. Today, the Tuoyo’s financial situation has improved, Janina Tuoyo said, since she doesn’t have to fly to games after her son transferred closer to home. That, and he doesn’t ask her to send him money every week, she joked.She only has to maintain a Wal-Mart cashier job now and while she admits that her knees and spine aren’t in great heath, she knows the family will be OK.“That’s what made it OK to work so hard, was Justin’s determination to excel in basketball,” Janina Tuoyo said. “Sometimes I can’t believe we’ve come a long way like this.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 17, 2015 at 12:15 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more
