I guess first and foremost I need to let everyone know that the show for 10/21 at the Tin Roof in Nashville has been cancelled. This is a real disappointment for me and the guys as well as the folks at Tin Roof. Lines got crossed with a set we are performing for the Americana Music Conference this Thursday. I’ll spare you the intricacies of it all and just say that I’m very sorry. This was to be our big hometown CD release show and now it can’t happen. Thanks to Jason and everyone at the Tin Roof for the support and understanding. We will make it up somewhere down the road.
On another note the vinyl mixes have been fixed and we should have details about when we can get those pressed and shipped out to y’all. Thanks for your patience. It will certainly be worth the extra time for your sonic listening pleasure.
Ended the second week of the When I Get My Wings Tour and things are going well. We are just getting our ‘sea legs’ with alot of the new stuff and it’s settling in nice. Had some cool opening acts as of late. Really enjoyed Aunt Martha. They were first of 3 in Charlotte and an incredibly pleasant surprise. The Locksley fellas are cool and they join back up with us later next week. James Dunn and his crew were good on Raleigh. Then we had Jaren and the Long Road To Love/Joe Firstman/cordovas/holy roller/wiffle ball junkies or whatever they’re going by in Milwaukee. Haha. They were lots of fun. Known those fellas for years and it was good to see them. Also caught up with Johnny from Jump Little Children who is playing bass with them. JLC were one of the very first bands to take me and my crew on tour years ago and I always loved them. I have nothing but great memories of those days. He of course ended up naked onstage during ‘too old to die young’. As I said that night I’m completely uncomfortable with how completely comfortable I am with seeing Johnny nekkid. Not a badge I’m proud to wear, but, it’s true. Milwaukee show for me was a standout. I always love playing there.
Our pal Zach Myers showed up that night and somehow after the show(due to a hatred of air travel if you must know) he ended up on Thor riding with us for 3 days so we could bring him to Nashville to DRIVE home to Memphis. Love it. He guitar teched his ass off for us too. I dare say at this point there’s no other band in rock that has a multiple-platinum selling guitar tech other than Will Hoge. Except maybe that Will HoPe guy that folks were expecting to see in Iowa City. Yeah. Awesome! In reality though the joint the Mill in Iowa City was a damn BLAST! Definitely a place I’d like to see us getting back to and building something.
Get a few things together this week to get ready for the AMA/Mercy Lounge show Thursday. Then the all night drive to play Tampa Friday. Hope we will see y’all soon. As always please spread the word. Thanks for all the support. Come see some rock and roll.
