Relax, Regroup, Refresh

Just spent five days on the road with my dear friend and superbad musician, Luther Dickinson, traveling the west coast and playing tunes from his brand new record. It was completely fulfilling in every way…

We were joined by Nashville legend, Jim Lauderdale who opened every show (which Luther and I were invited to participate in, nightly) then joined Luther and I for ours. It was so much fun!

The one and only, Jim Lauderdale. Simply amazing singer, songwriter and all-around great guy!

From Portland to Los Angeles, I must have spent a total of 20+ hours behind the wheel of our van and now I need a break. I’ve got a couple of weeks off before things get crazy again and decided it’d be a good idea to go spend some down-time with Dad. So…

Dad's place, Natchitoches, Louisiana.

I’ll see y’all soon…
