Below is my Gram Parsons InterNational sig file with related links:

“I feel qualified to say how together and slick The Gram InterNational Fest was. Every act, all very professional I might add, started and stopped seamlessly, all beginning and ending on time, quickly and efficiently sound checked, and supportive of each other. And why was this all so smooth you ask? Well the answer is Will James. If you’ve never promoted or organized an event you have no idea what I’m talking about. If you have then you should be in awe of how well things ran since you should know first hand that they usually don’t go off like this event did without a dozen train wrecks. I’ve been on both sides of the fence as I performed at dozens of these festivals and this one was right up there with the best of them. I was incredibly proud to be a part of it.” — Tokyo Rosenthal, The Tokyo Rosenthal Radio Show Host and Musician, November 2014

“Parsons would have turned 66 on Monday…. He lives, though, in trembling melodies, in book pages, in hearts on fire and on the hickory wind. ‘I feel optimistic that one day he’ll be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame,’ [Will] James says. … I share his enthusiasm for the music of a long-gone renegade.”
Peter Cooper, The Tennessean and currently Editor, The Country Music Hall of Fame, Nov. 2, 2012

“Listening back to [Parsons’] classic recordings … there’s no doubt he was a fabulous talent whose influence seems to get greater each year. The sixth edition of this annual Parsons tribute is expanding to two nights.”
Jack Silverman, The Nashville Scene (Critic’s Pick 2013)

“The Annual Gram National… and their petition site ( has the testimonials to prove that [Parsons] is perceived as more than merely a cult-status footnote in the annals of Country Music History.”
D. Patrick Rodgers, The Nashville Scene (Critic’s Pick 2012)

“I just wonder how the organizers of Gram National are going to top themselves next year.”
The Noise, Boston

“Gram National came to Beantown, kicked-ass and took names!”
Drew Townson, Analog Planet, Twang ’em High

“Holy, and shit. In that order. Gram National 2010 was an amazing two days of some the best music I’ve heard in a long time.”
Max Bowen, Citywide Blackout,
