Solo performances also allow McEuen more freedom than his Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concerts.
“It’s not like I’m Bon Jovi or somebody, but there’s a good 50-year career there,” he said. “It would be hard to replicate that in a concert but this is stretching out beyond that. Being in a group is a good thing but the solo shows are more of a challenge and it’s more fun. It’s the most fun I’ve had.
“A lot of people like what goes on when I do these shows away from the Dirt Band,” McEuen added. “It’s fun to go out and put a show together that’s not just one type of situation. I think I’m the best me I’ve ever been.”
