So much to be thankful for.
I’ve been rehearsing for my first show since my album was finished. Not an official CD release, but a show all the same. I’m playing at Opry Mills Mall on Saturday, September 21st at 1:15 with Neil Tufano on percussion, Kenny Zarider on Keys, and Keith Kenyon on bass. The event is brought to us by The Big 98 WSIX, Wholesale Inc, and Harbor Entertainment. I’ve never had a show brought to us by… anyone!
It’s hard to believe that I’m sitting in the spot that I am. In so many ways, it was like I’d never arrive here. In other ways, I can’t believe it took me this long. Even still, I can’t stay here forever.
I always joke about how I’m a dreamer, an idea guy. It’s really just an excuse for my snail-pace towards my goals. If I had a dollar for every time I took one step forward and one step back, I would be able to buy success instead of earn it. I seem to move laterally, merely looking forward while I do. It’s a perpetual crab walk that only time itself overcomes. But maybe I’m a hermit crab, just looking for a better shell to call home.
Either way, we’re entering phase three of my solo career- promoting the album with live shows, interviews, and media appearances. As Saturday approaches, I’m sure that I’ve never been more ready to take the stage.
