After the doctor's appointment, the family headed to Galveston, Texas, for a few days at the beach.
Supernaw is enjoying the break, as he's been in the studio a lot these days. He's working on his fourth album, which will have a Texas flavor.
The album will include a swing number and is a departure from his usual style. He says he's not sure how his fans will react.
"Hopefully they'll go for it," he says.
Supernaw, whose hits include "I Don't Call Him Daddy," "Reno" and "Not Enough Hours in the Night," worked as a staff writer for a publishing company in Nashville, Tenn., while trying to break into singing.
"In Nashville they told me I couldn't sing," he says. "I sing for enjoyment; I never worry about how I sound."
He couldn't wait to get back to Texas. He and his family live in Conroe, north of Houston.
"It's where I grew up," he says. "I didn't feel right with all the politics of Nashville."
He's had his share of problems in the past few years, including a broken neck he received while surfing in Mexico.
"I was attempting to surf," he says. "I'm not a good surfer."
The day his neck brace was removed, he was in a car accident.
The former oil rig worker and concert promoter is not one to let things get him down.
"I've got too many people to think about," he says.
Supernaw always is ready to try something new. He recently decided to do a somersault every day.
"We're all doing somersaults," he says, as the kids pipe up in agreement.
The idea came to him after he and his keyboard player had a discussion about the first person who ever did a back flip.
He can't tell you what to expect at the two Apollo Civic Theatre performances, because he's not sure.
"We never use a song set," he says.
He's arrived at the doctor's office, so he has to run. He'll see you in Martinsburg.
