Tonight was a first for me.  I’ve never been on a “tour”.  I am a local church worship guy.  I had a blast…

  1. I’ve never played in front of people who have paid money before…It was weird.
  2. I had no idea I was supposed to carry a Sharpie with me at all times.
  3. Sleeping on the top bunk of a moving bus is not all it’s cracked up to be.
  4. I had no lyrics on the screen during the first 2 songs and then I saw Shane B. sprinting across the back of the room…He saved the day and I ran my lyrics the last 2 songs.
  5. I followed the Chick-Fil-A cow throwing our little cows.  Nothing like starting off with humility forced down my face.
  6. The crowd seemed to REALLY love We Will Worship You.  They were singing LOUD.
  7. People want a story more than they want a song.  Link your song to a story and they will listen and sing.
  8. There are no bands I would rather start off this adventure in life with than The Shanes and John Mark McMillan.  Normal people.  I mean the Shanes drive their own bus for the love.
  9. John Mark McMillan is the cats pajamas.  Just him on acoustic and James on electric.  Nastiness.
  10. I have no band.  It’s me and tracks and my acoustic guitar.  I’m jumping around like I am surrounded by a full band.  I feel stupid and amazing at the same time.
  11. Satan’s lies that I’m not good enough were replaced with God’s truth that I’m not good enough…but He is…through me…

See you in Birmingham…
