The Southern Gospel Pink Slip, Blackwood style
It’s neither a slip nor pink, as Dan Keeton, very lately of one of the gazillion Blackwood groups, says he discovered along with the rest of us today:
An Open Letter from Dan Keeton,
I should have known something was up when Mr. Blackwood didn’t make my direct deposit last week. This morning, he never spoke one word to me all the way to Nashville. Then as we pulled into the Home depot to get my van, he says, We’ll just say it was the blend or something, I won’t need you anymore”. He handed me $70 and told me he’d make my deposit tomorrow.
I just now got home and on the facebook page there is already a new picture! And since Chris is in Alabama and David is in Memphis, this picture was taken before this weekend.
I just figured I’d be open and honest with my friends.
So, please pray for Nancy and I as we try to figure out what to do now.
Thank You Mr. Blackwood, I appreciate it.
And people say sg types aren’t taking full advantage of the internet!
Update: Cecil Blackwood responds to this Keeton bidness in a comment. Money quote:
Dan and I apparently disagree with what should take place on stage. That is not to say one of us is right or wrong, we just don’t see it the same way. I don’t like anyone being comical on stage, I don’t like fat jokes on stage, etc. Dan wanted to be comical. I asked him not to do that numerous times, but he still continued. That’s it. There is nothing else to this. No need to read between the lines. I was not happy with what he was doing and he obviously had no intention of quitting. To me, when the person paying you asks you repeatedly to stop doing something, and you continue, this should be expected. If any of you were in my shoes, you would have done the same thing. Be assured, Dan has been paid 100% of his money and Dan will only be spoken highly of by the Blackwood Quartet.
