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:
