Athens, GA


After a late night, I was up early this morning. Matt Mangano, Brandon Bell, & I had breakfast before they dropped me off at the Asheville airport. I had about 3 hours to kill there. So I listened to some music.
Finally landing in Atlanta by 2:30. It took forever for my bag to show up at the claim. My buddy Chris picked me up & took me south to Zac's house (where I left my car last week). I immediately loaded it up & took off - bound for home & trying NOT to hit any traffic. I was pretty lucky. It only took me an hour & a half to get home. I spent an hour chilling at home before I restrung my mandolin & tore off for Athens.
Blackberry Smoke shot a DVD tonight in the newly renovated Georgia Theatre. The theatre made news a couple years ago because it caught fire. It's an Athens landmark. They've spent a great deal of money to get it back to open. It's actually a LOT nicer than it was before the fire.
Anywho, Zac & I guests during their set. Also, Jimmy Hall (of Wet Willie fame) joined them for the evening as well. It was a great show & I was honored to be a part of it.
It's late & I want to go to bed. Good night.
