New Music, Tulsa, Jeff City and KC!

Not sure if something has changed but lately our shows seem to be a lot more packed! This past weekend we played in Tulsa, OK, Jefferson City, MO and Kansas City, MO. Every show was full! And in Kansas City we had a full house 10-15 minutes before showtime which meant they had to turn people away!! Full houses sure make for a fun show for us. So thanks to all who worked so hard at putting the shows together and thanks to everyone who showed up! Especially you crazies who drove 5 hours to get there! (Tom & Dianna!) We saw many familiar faces and met lots of new friends. Definitely one of the perks of the job!

We were also fed like kings. The bus was overflowing with sweets and treats. Pastries, cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies, candies, chocolates and more! We had to wade through it all to get to our bunks. Candies were probably spouting out the exhaust as we drove down the interstate. At least I was able to bring some home to my wonderful wife since we missed Valentines together.

Next week we'll be hitting the studio to record a couple of new songs. We'll be working with producer Mark Heimermann again which is great! He produced songs on our last two albums and seems to produce the ones that make it to radio so hopefully that can happen again. These will be part of a new project we're working on releasing by the summer.

Just a reminder, if you haven't joined our Facebook Fan Page to do so. The bulk of our updates are happening there and we do stop by to check it out too. So it's a great place to leave comments.

Until next time . . .

Cruise/Marc Update

For those of you who may have missed our Twitter updates after the cruise, we want to assure you that Marc did make it back into the U.S. quite easily. More easily than he should have I'm sure but when you pray for something for so long I guess that's what happens.

Marc approached the customs agent and started to dig his passport out of his bag. While he was doing this she asked if he was carrying any fruit or vegetables into the U.S. He said no then without seeing any ID or asking any more questions she dismissed him. He was through quicker than any of us!

He did eventually receive his paperwork yesterday. So if we want to leave the country again anytime soon we'll now be OK.

So thanks again for your prayers. Things worked out great and Jason was quite happy we didn't have to put on the Jason Germain show although I'm sure he would have done great!

Here's a pic of our group. We were happy to have our friends Algernon and Teryn join us. It sure made for lot of laughs!! You may notice Jeremy's wife Erin is missing. We really missed having her out with us but she was quite busy with their little Liam at home and only a few weeks away from baby number two arriving.
