Max, you never disappoint. You pour your heart and soul into your art. Thanks for being born in Texas and thanks for remembering your Frito Lay friends. Tony
A reply from Max : Tony,
Always so great to see you guys. Thanks for coming to Hanks. That was a fun night. And thanks for your kind words. I feel very fortunate to get to do what I do for a living. I DO still miss Frito Lay and all my friends there. Some amazing people! Hope to see you again and God Bless Texas!

Mr Stalling, Ive been a fan for a good long time. Ive soaked up as many live shows that I can make it to and spin the heck out of your CDs on those DFW commutes. Now I have a 14 month old daughter that loves your songs as much as myself. Thank you for all that. Anyway... A few (maybe several) years ago you played a song at Dan's Silverleaf and again at Love and War Plano that was about a ranch where the animals were all fat and happy. Do you remember the song? If so, is it available anywhere? Id really like to share it with the kid. Thanks! Dan
A reply from Max : Hey Dan,
Thanks for your great post and moreover, for your support through the years. And congrats on your litle one! How cool.
The song you are thinking of is called "Polka Ranch"...and it's a song I wrote a ton of years ago just for grins. I VERY RARELY play it and don't believe there are any recordings of it that I know of (at least I hope not!). It's pretty silly...but maybe if I ever do a children's record it would be a good fit?
Wish I could point you to where to go get the song but alas, it's not something I've ever recorded.
All the best to you and hope you'll keep coming out to shows!
Yours in music,

Dear Max, I've been a fan for a long time (since I was nine or so), and every time I see you live, listen to you, or stop by your site, I am pleased as punch at just how well you stay grounded in your Texas roots. Makes for great listening and a devoted fan base (count me in). I'd like to make one claim: to be the first to take your music and a Max Stalling T-shirt under the waves! I can't attach a photo here but will email it to your team. I wore a Max Stalling shirt on the deck of the USS Boise back in May down in the Caribbean, and at least a few times, I listened to Banquet and the old standby Wide Afternoon while we were submerged. Can't say I won you any new fans way out there (dolphins didn't flock to country music), but I did my best. Here's to your continued success and many more enjoyable songs, whether in the studio, on the road, or underwater. Take care!
A reply from Max :
That is really cool! Thanks so much for sharing this with me. Thank you for the kind words and I have to say...what a helluva cool picture! I gotta post this one to social media if it's ok. Will that be alright?
Thanks again and thanks for your service!

Thoroughly enjoyed the show and love the Banquet CD, just never get tired of listening to it. Can't beat Texas Sunshine, adopted that as my theme song. Hope to see in Gruene later this month. Have also contacted Chad about possibility of booking you for my 50th wedding anniversary in Jan 2018 in Helotes/San Antonio. Keep up the good work!
A reply from Max : Bob,
So glad you like the cd. I'm very proud of it. And hope that we can do your 50th! Sounds like a blast. Till Gruene!

Looking forward to seeing Max and his band play tonight. Warms ups sounded great and Hanks sound system is much improved. Tony Cuellar and I are thrilled to see an ex Frito peer rise as a top of the country music performer.
A reply from Max : Great seeing you Frito Lay fighters there! Thanks for coming out! Max

Your homesick Texan fans want you to tour outside of God's country! I'm in OH would love to see you N of Red River sometime. Keep up the good work!!!
A reply from Max : Emily,
I'd love to come up to Ohio. Any suggestions on where we should be looking at to play?
Hang in there!

entry for "Joke of the Week" A wealthy Arab Sheikh was admitted to the hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, they needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out. Finally a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman in appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, 5 carats of diamonds, and $50,000 dollars. A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. The hospital telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate more of his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a Thank-you card and a box of Chocolates. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had before. He phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me another BMW, diamonds and money ... but you only gave me a Thank-you card and a box of Chocolates." To this the Arab replied: "Aye Laddie, but I have Scottish blood in me veins now !"
A reply from Max : Cory,
Thanks for sharing!

Smooth Max, I didn't think you could get any better than your previous albums (do they still call them albums?), but you've done it! Banquet is absolutely phenomenal!! Very well done. My only regret is not making your CD release gig. Can't wait to catch you live!!
A reply from Max : Cory,
Thanks so much! I'm very proud of Banquet. It's been a long time coming. I'm very happy that it's out and trying to make it's way in the world.
I really appreicate folks like yourself who still listen to music. I'm just hoping to spread the word a bit and give the album a chance to get out there to be heard. Pass the word, please.
All the best and thanks so much,

Dear Max, Thank you so much for playing an awesome show in Waco!!! Your music was great as always. You took a picture with my wife and I at the end of the night when we got t-shirts. I always stream your music in the OR at work and tell everyone about you. I am not a music snob, but I know we need more of what you do and less pop country/Nashville crap that is produced today. Please keep up the great work and thank you for coming to Waco. Jason
A reply from Max : Hey Jason,
That was a fun night! We enjoyed getting to be there and sure appreciate you guys coming out. Thanks for spreading the word about my tunes. That means a lot to me.
I hope the tshirts treat you right and thanks for your kind words!
Hope to see you agian soon!
