Decatur, GA


I left the house around 11:30am for my TRA (The Recording Academy) board meeting. TRA is still known as NARAS, but national has decided to shift the focus of the title of the organization. This is my third year sitting on the board - & this may have been the best meeting that I've ever attended. A lot of great things going on & coming up. One thing that I'm particularly excited about is Grammy365: it's a private social network for members in the vein of facebook. It will allow all members of TRA to network very, very easily.
Anyway, after Michelle & I walked the boys, I loaded the car & went to Eddie's Attic for the umpteenth time. Levi Lowrey was brilliant. He was perfect for opening up the show.
The last time that I played my music was sometime last year. Most of these songs I've never played live. The reason that I mention this is because I was really nervous that I was going to forget the words. I have a terrible habit of doing that. Anyway, I did for get half way through one song. Outside of that, I really, really had fun playing tonight. It makes me want to keep booking shows. It reminds me why I even write songs.
'Thank you' to everyone who enjoyed the evening with me.
