First "Ending is Beginning" Tour show a success!

It's a beautiful day here in Virginia... and I'm exhausted. Last night we played in Uniontown, PA for the first show on the "Ending is Beginning" tour. It ended up being a great night, but as all first days of tours go, it was a LONG and tiresome day. Our hosts were great - we played in a really cool old theater and Len the theater "dude" was a great help (sometimes with venues like this the "dude" is extremely unhelpful). With this being our first time setting up the lights, meeting and working with Michael Gungor and his band, and just getting everything ready to roll, we literally started loading in at 9:20am and didn't stop for a break until 11pm when we arrived at the hotel at the end of the night.

Then this morning we hit the road at 6am so that we could drive to Williamsburg, VA for an outdoor show tonight. I'm excited about tonight - we're going to see some great friends and it sounds like they've done a superb job promoting this show. It's being billed as a "release party" for our new album and they're expecting around 1500 people - I hope we've got enough CDs for everyone! Regardless, it's going to be a fun night - I just wish I wasn't so tired! Oh yeah - and Michael Gungor had to leave his driver at a hospital in Uniontown this morning as he went in for an appendectomy. I'm thankful I'm not him today!

So with setting up the lights and sound for a second day, a messageboard chat this afternoon, and another early morning tomorrow (we leave for the airport at 5:15am to fly to TX where we'll be launching our record on-air at K-LOVE with Jon and Sherry Rivers) we've got a lot to think about today. Your prayers for health and strength would definitely be appreciated. Take care, and I hope we'll see you on the road!

Sounds like an eventful beginning!

Bummed that I missed the chat today, but hopefully I'll be able to make it up with an Ending is Beginning concert coming to a venue near me at some point in the tour!

Have a blast!

Great! I can't wait 'til y'all come near me! Which reminds me, the closest show listed on your website is in Green Bay, which is three hours away. I hope you do something closer to Rock County, Wisconsin, because I want to see you guys!

"My Last Amen" is my favorite so far, too!
