My apologies for the gap between posts. Touring life has been INSANE and I’ve had little time for anything but driving and sleeping.
I flew down to Texas at the beginning of May for the Songwriter Serenade contest where I placed 4th.
Then I flew down in Key West for the BMI singer/songwriter festival. It was a BLAST and I can’t wait until next year.
I went down south and toured Texas, New Mexico and Arizona for the month of May. I’m happy to report that I was one of the 4 winners of the Wildflower Festival songwriter contest! The festival was a great experience and I hope to play it again next year.
I did a run of shows with Brian Dunne in June and we had loads of fun and played some really great house concerts and venues.
After a quick vacation and very special weekend in New England I started out toward St. Louis to begin my July/August monster tour. I’ve been to Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and I’m still not done. Who booked this tour anyways? (I do all my own booking)
Coming up I’ll be in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas and then on to EUROPE! France, Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. Any Europe travel tips are greatly appreciated.
I’m excited to announce a new endeavor with Patreon.com. Patreon is a website that allows fans to become patrons of their favorite artists. 10% of all my patron contributions will go directly to the American Camp Association.
I can’t wait to start making new art for all of you.
You guys did it! You voted every day, shared with all your friends and won me an opening spot for Gregory Alan Isakov. I cannot thank you enough. I’m so glad Larabar put on this contest and I was able to be part of it. I’ll be opening the show in Denver on March 5th at the Ogden Theatre and it’s already SOLD OUT. The butterflies have already set in…ahh!
So I was picked as 1 of 6 finalists in the LaraBar Singer-Songwriter contest. The voting runs Monday, February 2nd – Friday, February 5th. It’s 1 vote per email address per day.
I need all of you to help me win this contest. The winner will be flown out to open for Gregory Alan Isakov (no big deal) in either San Francisco or Denver and will also be given $500.
Voting everyday is a pain in the you know what but I’m determined to do everything I can to win this contest. Set a reminder in your phone to come back to the page everyday to vote and you won’t even have to think about it! Super simple and super helpful.
Wow! Only 1 more day left in 2014. What a year it has been.

I’m resting up for next year at my house here in Nashville. Looking forward to hitting the road but definitely love having some time at home. Thank you all for joining me on this journey. If there’s a city I missed this year please let me know so I can try to plan a show near you for 2015. Have a happy new year. Love to you all.
