…and I’ve been as busy as I’ve ever been.
That’s a very good thing. The road has been treating me kindly, so I can lodge no complaints. Baseball season is only a few weeks old, the wildflowers in Texas have been popping up out of the ground in record numbers (and with unparalleled beauty) and our little town of New Braunfels is gearing up for what will surely be a crowded summer, with rivers full of water for the first time in a couple of years.
Our next leg of the New American Voices tour will be kicking off in a few months, and it already looks like it’ll be an exciting journey. I can’t wait to see the sites and share our music with new people. So far, we’ve booked shows in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Arizona. Hopefully we can add Utah to the list as well.
Speaking of the New American Voices tour, my partner in crime Rodney Hayden has a bunch of things on the horizon as well– we wrapped his new album Tavern of Poets up a few weeks ago, and it should be available soon. It’s a killer record, if I may so so. Also, he’s throwing a little songwriter festival on May 8th in Boerne, TX. The lineup is incredible– we’ll be sharing the stage with Tom Russell, Walt Wilkins, Susan Gibson, Jason Eady, Owen Temple, Bonnie Bishop, Adam Carroll, Max Stalling, Josh Grider, Bill Whitbeck and Stephanie Briggs. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it– I can’t think of another show that has a lineup like this one. If you’d like to join us, you can order your tickets here.
As another reminder, you can still download my live acoustic album Alone, But Not Lonely for free, thanks to our friends at Lone Star Music. For more on that, click here.
That’s about it from me… if you’ve got any suggestions for our NAVT tour of the west, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email through the contact page, and we’ll do what we can to bring the show to you. We only have a few more open dates, and if you’d like to host us by putting on a house concert, let us know!
As always, thanks for supporting those of us who are out there, crisscrossing the highways and byways, doing our best to bring our music to the stage, and our unique brands of lyrical intelligence to your ears. It’s fun, but it’s not always easy. Knowing that you guys are out there makes it a lot easier.
