So, the country Throwdown Tour has come to an end. Our last show was about a week ago at Fontanel Mansion in Nashville, and to tell the truth, I really wish it would have just kept on going all summer. It has been such an awesome ride.
One of my favorite parts of the tour was getting to watch the other artists perform and learning the words to all of their songs. Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Josh Thompson, Sunny Sweeney, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Paslay, the Maggie Rose Band, and of course my partners on the Bluebird Cafe Stage, Carly Pearce and Channing Wilson.
I cried behind my gas station sunglasses during our last Bluebird Set, just thinking about how much fun we have had and how I’m gonna hate not seeing all these incredible people every weekend.
After spending the past two months basically tailgating in a parking lot while waiting to play, I find myself wanting to open the hatch of my truck and just sit out there and drink a beer from time two time… lol. Not too bad of a pastime it turns out. Seriously though, it is good to be home and I’m gonna be writing like crazy over the next couple of months and I will be out on the road again soon, coming to a city near you.
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and hung around all day in the blistering heat and sometimes rain, to see the show. It was such a great opportunity to get to play for ya’ll, especially in such an intimate setting under the bluebird tent. I also want to thank Sarah Baer and everyone on the Throwdown crew for making me feel like a part of your family !
