It is thundering and lightning like CRAZY here in Nashville. I mean CRAZY. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen lightning like this. I have a vivid memory of being 5 or 6 and under a homemade fort in my bedroom with my sister and bestfriend during a crazy thunderstorm. Making forts was the best!
Anyway, it’s been an amazing weekend. My friends came to visit! College buddies Avi and Bobby came through on Friday night and we cooked an amazing dinner (homemade guacamole, turkey burgers, greens, yazoo goodness) and took a trip down to the honky tonks on Broadway. As touristy as it is, I LOVE going to the honky tonks. I think I can trace my love for cheesy country music back to 5th grade. For some reason that year my parents decided that they only wanted me and my siblings to listen to Christian music. No big deal. D.C. Talk was big, Audio A was just coming out I think…there were lots of excellent choices. However, my parents love for country music could not be quenched so they allowed me to listen to lots of Garth Brooks, Deanna Carter, Leann Rimes, and more. Looking back it’s pretty funny. What did I really think the song Strawberry Wine was about? Hmmm…. Anyway, it makes going to honky tonks fun…at least for 3 songs.
My college roommate Laura also came to town this weekend!!! AMAZINGNESS! Seriously. We drank lots of coffee, enjoyed delicious froyo, and talked for hours and hours and hours….so so so good. I love her so.
But alas, the weekend has come to an end. It’s back to work and we have some fun stuff going on! Here’s a preview video that my friend Avi made for the upcoming record. Enjoy!
