That's what I'm feeling right now as I sit in the Austin airport writing this blog. I feel really blessed to be able to play in this band and be able to play music most every night. Yesterday's show was great. The weather was amazing and the sound was good. It was a great crowd, too. Everyone in the band also seemed to be in great spirits. Austin is a great town with great people. It's no wonder Explosions in the Sky are from Austin. |

We have had such a great time being on tour with those guys and we miss being on the road with them already. They are such a great band and the most down to earth group of guys I've ever met. I am happy to know that we will be friends for years to come. When we arrived 2 days ago here in Austin, Munaf from Explosions came and picked Jeff and I up from the hotel and took us around town. He showed us the Explosions headquarters and then we all went out for Indian food! It was a amazing. Afterwards, we hit up the downtown area and hung out till the wee hours of the night. We had a blast.
Well, besides Austin, I've had a great time in seeing friends in Boston, Philly, Nashville, Atlanta and of course Vegas. It's fun to be able to visit friends that are scattered throughout the country that I normally wouldn't be able to visit if I weren't on tour. It has been a bit of a rock/friend visiting tour for me, which is great. As this leg of the tour comes to an end, I am happy about how tight we've gotten as a band and of all that we've accomplished this year. I am also excited to go home for the holidays and to be with friends.
Life is good.
