Our Tiny Tour in the mid/southeast ended last night in Knoxville, TN, and I didn't want to let any time go by before I thanked those of you that helped make it a success. We enjoyed ourselves; enjoyed making memories. I even fell in love with a new favorite band - Bandit - at one of our Nashville shows with them, Sean Michel, Foreign War and '68. We got to eat Cookout thanks to all the Redeemer House kids in North Carolina. We made new friends in Boiling Springs, saw old friends in Georgia and South Carolina, and had great conversations every evening with folks that came to join us.
To our friends and fans, I appreciate you for taking a night out of the week to come support us at a show. I know you could have been anywhere else in the world, and it was an honor to have you with us. I hope you enjoyed the new performance, and I hope that it will not be a year until I'm back in that area again.
One of the deep joys of revisiting old spots is seeing the growth in the artists that I get to perform with - many of whom have played two or three shows with me now, when I'm in the area. It's great to see poets, musicians, and artists progress over time.
I know it's already April, but the year feels young, and we're gearing up for a great season, with some changes, some sameness, and hopefully some progression of our own. With all sincerity, thank you for continuing to follow along. Keep an ear peeled, because we're just getting started.
Happy Easter. Turn off your phones and enjoy one another tomorrow. By the grace of God, we've got a lot to celebrate.
