Such a fun morning talking about the new EP, chatting about the Franklin BBQ fest and playing “Drink of You” with @kacyhagertytv this morning with the @williamsonsource. Lipscomb Journalism people do big things around here #music#musician#guitar#comingbackstronger#telecaster
We did the math and we haven’t had a vacation of just the three of us in 10 years. Lol I was 14 the last time we did this. This trip was much needed and a blessing. Football season can now commence #beach#beachlife#destin#florida
Over the past 5 years or so I have allowed my insecurities to get the best of me. I've listened too much when people said that "I suck" or "you're a joke, you're wasting your time," and for a long time I believed them.
A few years ago I read that if you love something you have to spend your time, energy AND money on it. I never invested in myself (something I will be blogging about very soon). I would see so many of my friends spend money to get something professional done and I had never done that.
After everything I have allowed to get to me, to get me down and try to take me out, I don't know if there was ever a better title for this than Coming Back Stronger. I am beyond proud of this. I sat in tears when I first heard it. My buddy @brent_rader (Guitar player/Band leader for Joe Nichols) did an absolutely phenomenal job producing the main 4 tracks on this (the other two are demos that would be used for a full production, they still rock though). Guys, all I ask is for your support, buy the whole thing or a track or two, share it with your friends, play it at the drive thru at the bank. But this is the start for something fantastic and I am already getting radio play across the country in California, Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania. I hope these tracks are relate-able to you. I priced it so the whole thing is extremely affordable for everyone (literally cheaper than a cup of coffee). I hope you crank them up in your car and drive 100 (disclaimer: I will not pay your ticket lol). From the writing, the playing and singing, I am so proud of this. "And so I'll fight a little bit longer, I'll stand a little bit taller.....I guess I'm just Coming Back Stronger"
I have no idea what just happened.
1. A bachelor party put a picture of the Bachelor's face on my guitar, then became my biggest fan club
2. The said bachelor party handed me a beer and I proceeded to use it as a slide to play a guitar solo and I’ve never seen anybody so stunned
3. People actually followed me on Instagram
4. And I sang Red Dirt Road as the whole bar sang the chorus with me and I've never felt more like @garthbrooks
5. Pretty sure I'm watching the titans game while Kaylee and I played
