Hello friends. I have some sad news... we said goodbye to our sweet Greyhound, Dylan on Monday. You've heard me talk about him since the show started. Over the last year, he's not been doing well but he's been hanging in there. I think he hung in there because he loved his mommy, his brother Taylor and me so much. I loved Dylan so much and just wanted to let the world know the amount of joy that this strange and beautiful creature brought to our lives. I love you, Dylan. I always will.

Hello friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and that things are all going your way. Things are good here. I am still kinda tired from my crazy week/weekend of SKYROCKET! shows. The convention we were playing (check the intro on ep. 579) took a step into the world of the insane on Thursday night when Vanilla Ice showed up for soundcheck and didn't like what he heard. I talk all about it in the intro. By the way, if the intro sounds a little different, it's because i recorded it in my hotel room on Saturday night before my gig. Hope you enjoy it.

You can find out their schedule and hear their music at Scott and Lexi and I have a great conversation about making Let's Start Here, how they met, what constitutes a "hat guy" or a "hat band", Lexi's years in El Paso, violin vs. fiddle and much, much more!
