Well, It’s been a whirlwind summer full of great shows. Thanks to Frankie Ballard, Drew Baldridge, Gary Allan, Jamie Johnson, Keith Anderson, Rick Monroe, and Josh Thompson for letting us open over the summer. We’ve also had a helluva good time hanging out and playing with our friends in The Matt Poss Band, Mulberry Mud, and Chris Corkery…and a shout out from Wynonna Judd about the new EP is pretty nice as well :)wynonna2  Fall is apon us, and that’s usually hibernation mode for me. Time to finish up some tunes that I haven’t had time to, and figure out what is going on the next album. You can still catch the full band and a few more shows this year, and catch me doing acoustic solo gigs through the region, so be sure and check the tour dates to see when we’ll back in your area.  If you would like to book the band for 2015, I would highly encourage you to do so now. We are already starting to book early 2015 now, and the calender tends to fill up rather quickly. Hit the CONTACT icon for booking questions, or just drop me an email and say hey. I’d love to hear from you.

Recording of the EP starts this weekend. Thanks to everyone for their patience, but we want to assure you that we will have it ready for you really soon. I will try to put some clips from the recording process as we progress.

On a sadder note, next week we bid farewell to A Train, and we are sad to see him go, but wish him nothing but the best of luck in his musical endeavors. Be sure to come out to Boomerang’s in Urbana next Fri March 8th, to listen to him jam with us one last time..


More to come,
