Day 2 and 3 - Memphis 

Hey everybody! I was planning on writing a little bit Thursday , but since we didn't have a show, once we hit Memphis day drinking kind of took over (oops). We left Little Rock around noon and made it here around 3pm.

Our host while we're here is an old friend of Cody's. He's got an apartment off of main street with a beautiful view of the Mississippi river, conveniently walking distance from Beale Street and most of downtown Memphis' best bars. At one point we were on Beale Street at Jerry Lee Lewis' bar, upstairs, by ourselves, with a piano and some Fireball. We got back to the apartment around 2am and were up getting dressed Friday morning by 6:30 for our appearance on Local Memphis Live, which is broadcast by the local ABC station. It was insane. Cody got to wear a lapel mic, and we got to see all the inner workings of a local news show (shades of HIMYM). Then, we got to play one of Cody's songs and everybody treated us like big shots!

We got back to Cody's friend's (aka the unofficial mayor of Memphis) and napped off our hangovers, walked over to the Gibson factory, did some daytime touristy stuff on Beale, and finished off the night with an awesome gig at The Brass Door. We made some good connections for the return trip, so when we come through in a week and a half we might have some even better opportunities.

In the morning, onward to Nashville where we meet up with my extremely talented former front-lady Dana and our first house show of the tour!

See ya,

Day 1-Denton to Little Rock 

Ok! I have never blogged before, and this is going to take some getting used to. Please, bear with me while I learn the ropes here. It's day one of my southeast tour with Cody Maxwell and so far, so good.

We left Denton for Little Rock about 10 am and made really good time down I-30 in to Arkansas. We snacked on mixed nuts and apple slices and listened to some Hayes Carll, Blood on the Tracks, and Conor Oberst.  Heavy traffic followed by heavy rain slowed us down a little bit but we got in to town around 6 pm and we headed over to Afterthought near UA Little Rock for their weekly open mic. Cody did some research and the Afterthought seemed to have one of the best open mics in town.

He was right. It was awesome. I had no idea what to expect out here in LIttle Rock, and the part of town we were in was full of hippies, old and young. My people! A car drove by the venue blasting Bob Dylan's "Hurricane" as I overheard a college-age girl regaling a captive audience of young men about how she…let's say…enjoys herself while listening to Faith Hill's "Breathe." Whatever floats your boat, I guess. In general, lots of people wanted to talk about our trip, buy a CD

It was a wild night packed with folk music and occasionally too much information. But, we had a lot of fun and if I knew Little Rock could be this much fun, I'd have come here sooner. Tomorrow we hop on over to Memphis. Daniel will probably have photos and videos from today online later tonight or tomorrow morning, and I'll link to those when they become available. See ya!
