KEAN’s Rudy Fernandez Moved to Tears Watching ‘Troubadour, TX’
I went to watch one of my favorite shows, Troubadour TX this past weekend and found the episode that had cast members Zane Williams, Josh Grider and Matt Caldwell stopping in Abilene. The documentary show follows Texas music artists on their quest for fame, fortune and notoriety, paid a visit to Rudy "Fearless" Fernandez and the KEAN 105 Morning Show, and left a lasting impression on listeners -- and Rudy.
During their visit Zane got his guitar and performed his song 'While I Was Away' from his latest CD, 'Overnight Success'. It's a heart-wrenching song about life away from his family while he pursues his dream of making it in the music business.
It's a very moving song, and with Troubadour TX cameras rolling in the KEAN 105 studios, Rudy got caught up in the emotion of the song and Williams' performance.
Here's the entire episode. The part featuring Rudy starts at 11:45 into this video.
The whole 21:00 episode is worth watching. This one features Texas music star Wade Bowen, who will be at the Lucky Mule Saloon on November 29th. It also shows an epic save by Zane Williams, who was faced with technical difficulties at one of his shows and handled the challenge like an absolute champion.
