It has begun.
Or at least is about to.
Next week, I head out on my first ever solo tour. I'm beyond excited. All of the dates are set in small, intimate venues, which is fantastic, as you and I'll be right there so close to each other, but this also means that you will need to get your ticket, like, now since there aren't a lot of them to go around. And I do so want you there. The night is going to be a hoot. The friends I'm bringing along to play and sing with us all have a slew of gadgets to aid our endeavors: banjos, fiddles, dobros, lap steel guitars, pedal steels, guitar type guitars, a cello, an upright bass, two drummers, as in like, two drummers, with all manner of accouterments for them both to pound upon. The stage is going to look like an Appalachian yard sale. And of course every one of em' singing their bursting hearts out into a microphone. I'm just saying it's going to be a rare thing that I don't want you to miss. You, me, some new friends that you're just gonna love, and rousing music to aid our response to God and give voice to what this journey is to follow this Jesus we read of in scripture. This is the beginning of something special and I want you to be there for it.
