Chirstmas Tour Time

Year two for the Bethlehem Skyline Tour has arrived and I am excited! We have such a great team of people working behind the scenes to put all of this together and I have the privilege of showing up and making music with some of my favorite people on the planet for 15 nights. Last year when we started this thing I knew there was some "magic" to it and I was really hoping we'd be able to be out again this year.
Even though that "magic" was there it wasn't all easy last year. The first year of anything new is always difficult but Centricity really believed in this idea. We were telling stories while we ate lunch today about some of last year's experiences. Some awful food, some unbelievably magnificent food, a security guard who was so rude we think he was fired after we left, the cold and snow and delicious scones at the Grays house in Minnesota.
Well this year's tour seems to have started much stronger as far as our preparedness and last night's show in Nashville felt pretty good. It was awesome to have such a great crowd in a town where you expect the crowds to be tired of music. Maybe that's just our insecurities coming out but we were glad so many were there and that so many of our friends were there too.
It'll be a busy few weeks. We'll be working hard and we'll be away from our families but even with all the difficulties I still count it a blessing and an honor to be able to make music for a living and especially to be able to do that with people I love. Looking forward to what's coming next!

Hey, looking forward to (hopefully) seeing you in Waukesha next Friday! I saw y'all last year, and it was pretty cool. Thanks for doing the tour last year, even though it was hard! And thank you for doing it again this year. :)
Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for traveling into Wilmington NC (for a second time) here at Myrtle Grove Evangelical Presbyterian Church. We absolutely loved the performances at our Sunday morning service and for sure again that evening in a full concert. Downhere has been a blessing to all of us. Thanks again for making the effort, and sharing the gifts God gave each band member with the public. Your music continues to touch my soul every time I listen to your CDs. I wish you all much success and God's protection.
