yesterday was a magical music day.
woke up and had a cowrite with a new cowriter… aaron raitiere. he’s been writing for ages, just new for us to write together. we were vibing and got a great song in 2 hours… the best part, we already decided do it again because it was so enjoyable.
because I was ahead of schedule, I got to go watch one of my favorite voices in town sing … ( I’ve tried before, but could never make it before the end of his gig) Steven clawson, well done friend. it was a privilege to sit by myself for two hours and listen without interruption. what an artist!
then, my friend and one of my favorite people and co-writers, Adam Wheeler, had a gig at the Bluebird Cafe.
I wasn’t able to get tickets online (they sell out so fast) but got Quint and we went down there at 4:40… to hope for the best. Well… we were too far back in the line but Adam worked it our for us to make it in (his cousin Courtney gave us her spot).
got to see my hometown friend Julie Forester sing in the round(which is always amazing)… and then, Adam sang one of the songs we wrote with Jordan Reynolds. people seemed to really like it. also got to listen to Kellys Collins and John Milstead… and a surprise performance from Liz Hengber.
And, I had the best time with my son.
gosh. I’m overwhelmed with the goodness of this place and the magic of country music. God was so kind to me yesterday and I’m so grateful.
