Also want to thank an old friend, Lee Lacy for the cool drawing he did of me recently! We did a film camp together down in Petersburg back in like 2005? Our group made a horror movie, you can imagine how hilariously bad it turned out! it’s on youtube still and you have to do some digging to find it……

I don’t know about y’all, but 2013 has been quite a year! whew! I want to thank everyone for supporting my fall tour that just ended, for a minute there I thought I wasn’t gonna make it, thought everything was gonna fall apart after 3+ months of work. But with your support I was able to overcome all obstacles and somehow pull off doing that tour! I was solo from Oct. 12th till I got back to Richmond and it was the first time I had ever done a tour that long by myself. I drove by myself for 4, 9, and sometimes 12-15 hours at a time, slept in my 96 Oldsmobile when I needed to, drank lots of coffee, and had an amazing time! Thinking back it feels almost like I dreamt it. I think my three favorite cities on that tour were: Nashville, Tulsa, Austin and New Orleans! Definitely will be visiting those places again on future tours!
I played my last Virginia show of the year last week with my good friends The Green Boys and new friends J.D Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers. It was a really fun show and I was really honored to share the stage with such an awesome buncha people!
Now I am in sunny Miami until after New Years, getting some much needed booking and planning work done for early 2014. Speaking of early 2014, lets talk about plans for January:
January tour with Alex Culbreth:
1/6 Western VA
1/7 Snug Harbor Charlotte NC ( Country Tuesday)
We are still confirming details and dates, so please RSVP to keep track, and let us know if you have any advice or want us to come to your town! I am really looking forward to 2014 and am trying to be on the road as much as possible!
