Jack doesn't get out of Nashville much for the following reasons:
He can't fly because of his tinnitus, so travelling is limited to ground transport.
Ground transport is very expensive, so it;s gigs close to home.
Currently, Elizabeth is not playing bass, so he doesn't have a bass player. No bass player, no band.
In the last six months, Jack's brother Stanley (who taught Jack to play) passed away, as has Elizabeth's father. Family duties have been steep. Elizabeth's mother is also in very poor health, and Elizabeth is her primary provider.
Jack plays his own music, which makes getting gigs harder. He isn't going to do Mustang Sally, Freebird, or Whipping Post, so the masses aren't lining up for tickets. And, never forget, money is the only thing that drives live music. You don't fill up the place with spenders; they ain't gonna book you. The last thing venues are in the business of is promoting music.
However, there are occasions when he gets some gigs. His last one was with Stuart Duncan and it was incredibly good. if you went to listen to music. But, the majority of folks aren't actually interested in music, they want to be where the action is. They talk loudly while the music is playing and seem more interested in being noticed than enjoying music. Very tough for acoustic musicians when the small talk is competing, volume wise, for the attention.
Not trying to be negative, just honest. Hope this helps.

If he and we are lucky, the tinnitus will disapear from Jack's system.
Took some time to read about it a bit today.
