So Wednesday’s show was another great one for us. The band has been having an incredible time. All the guests were great. Pat KILLED it, like we knew he would. Slim was great on ‘Woman Be Strong.’ Randy and the horn section we thought were spot on. They felt they ‘missed’ a thing or two, we however strongly disagreed. haha. Jefferson joined us for ‘The Letter’ and ‘King Of Grey.’ We got tickled afterwards because ‘The Letter’ is like the perfect tune for Erson to play on. It felt wonderful. Cool to see the crowd moving around through the whole song. Jim Lauderdale sang two with us as well. Both are songs soon to be released, one on the album, one on a pre-release 45 that we’re very happy about. So there’s one more week to go. We’re finalizing the guests for the 24th and will post all that in the next day or so.
I also wanted to clue you all in about this great function that is happening Saturday night, the 20th. It’s taking place at the Country Music Hall Of Fame. Check it out, get tickets, etc. at www.goldenhourlateparty.com. It’s to help with the Vanderbilt Trauma Survivors Network and the American Trauma Society. My family and I have seen firsthand over the last 11 months the amazing work that these folks do. We’ve also seen firsthand how hard these things can be on the individual as well as the surrounding family. Trying to reintegrate back to a normal, everyday existence takes lots of work. Mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, you name it. And these programs will aim to help ease all of these things. This is something we’ll all be involved with alot in the future as we feel it necessary to try and give back to these folks that have given us so much. If you’re around Nashville Saturday, come by and check it out. If not, there will be more opportunities in the future.
As always, thanks for all the continued support. I’ll check back in Sunday and give you all the details for the final Wednesday show next week.
