We call this "Road Trip" and we'll get to sit in on meetings with people in the music industry. We're going to meet Charlie Peacock, Sarah Masen, David Dark, etc. AND we're going to Jars of Clay's studio. And TobyMac's studio, where they're recording the next Michael W. Smith album. I'M SO EXCITED. This is going to be awesome.
And there's a really cool used bookstore I want to go to, also. Of course. But I can't buy a whole lot of books because I can't take them all home of course. :)
After Nashville, I'm busing over to Charlottesville, VA where my auntie Sam is going to pick me up and I'm spending a few days with her and my uncle Rob. I'm super excited for that, too! I'll get to see the campus where they teach (they both have PhDs and teach at JMU). And not do music for a few days. :) That'll be really nice.
So anyway, I just wanted to let y'all know what I'm up to, since I know that your daily existence depends on regular updates of my activities.
Oh! Yesterday I went into the studio to record a whistle part for one of the Artists-in-Residence here (former students who have come back for a semester to focus on recording). They're a husband and wife team, and the husband came up to me and said, "We want a whistle part in one of our songs and we heard that you are a dynamite whistler, so we thought we'd ask you." Which was really thrilling for me because I love to whistle... And I am really good at it, if I do say so myself.
Anyway, it's nearing 60 degrees outside and sun is shining so I can't take this screen anymore.
Love and (hopefully just a little bit of) Sunburn,
