After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June of 2012, the husband and wife duo You Knew Me When set plans to tour the nation for a full year…however, they never stopped.
Since that time they have been serving up their craft brewed compositions coast to coast throughout the USA and into Canada, released their first studio album “You, Me, and the Rest of the World”, and have done so as a fully independent entity. On May 29 and 30, at 6 p.m. both days, the duo will continue their ongoing tour as they perform in Murrells Inlet at K Rae’s. There is no cover for either show.
Physical and digital copies of “You, Me, and the Rest of the World” are available at www.youknewmewhen.com www.youknewmewhen.com. The album is also available on iTunes, Amazon, and other online retailers. Listen to You Knew Me When online via Pandora, Spotify, iTunes Radio, and other online radio sources.

May 13 ~ Rep. James Clyburn
(Blessed Remembrances) at Pawleys Plantation
In his memoir, the Democrat from South Carolina candidly discusses strained political relationships, showing how the small gestures – a discordant statement, an exclusion from negotiations, a tinkering of a law – also cause damage. However, Clyburn’s book is by no means about his relationship with the Obama administration. The vast majority of it is devoted to his own story: The college student who was jailed during protests, the classroom teacher who fought to get college scholarships for needy students, the organizer who helped with hospital and garbage worker strikes, the political operative and, ultimately, the politician himself.
May 16 ~ Jane Spillane
(My Life with Mickey) at Capt. Dave’s Dockside
A collection of stories about the late crime novelist Mickey Spillane by Jane Spillane, his wife of 23 years who lives in the Murrells Inlet home they shared together. The writer died in 2006. Each chapter of the book is paired with photographs of Spillane memorabilia and items around the Spillane household, including the writer’s most signature and prized possessions. Spillane created the legendary pulp fiction character Mike Hammer, who appeared in many of his best-selling novels. But the writer, Jane Spillane says, “wasn’t at all like the books he wrote and the characters he created.” She describes him as both a disciplined writer and a fun-loving husband.
