  • The famous, old bunny takes a nap at the playground with us. Carter wants me to take a picture and put it online so her friends can see it. ☀️

  • @caraannfox @itslesliejordan What a rich gift it has been to share music and life together this Spring. Here's to many more such occasions...
  • I ❤️ these people. Part of the whole group, church on the road. This is my last week of the spring tour with @allsanddmusic & we're trying to soak it in. Such mutuality of spirit is both a gift and a practice. I'm grateful for these months together. @caraannfox @jacobstillman @danielhadaway @itslesliejordan
  • Rolling across Kansas and into Colorado today. The landscape is gloriously flat. No drama. Just peace and prairies. Good for the soul.
  • The strawberries are coming! #NashvilleARocha
  • Playing hymns with these guys inspired the production for the new album--Jay & Alex Foote, you make beautiful, attentive music. Thank you for making this record with me!  And thanks to Isaac Wardell (not pictured) for introducing us at the BiFrost Arts Conference in Philly a few years ago.
  • Sang the "Psalms" album with some of my favorite people, Melanie Penn and Thad Cockrell, who came to Brian & Brooke's to record with me. Celebrating today the joy of friendship that gives shape to our stories..thankful for you guys.
  • Celebration yogurt at the airport this am...happy birthday to my new album, Psalms...Officially out today!
  • Setting up with @allsanddmusic at Logan Square Auditorium for a show tonight in Chicago. All the best in coffee, popcorn and vintage shops--
  • John Cusack. Chicago. Top 5 movies of all time. This was the record store.
  • Isaiah 30:19 For a people shall dwell in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you. 20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. 21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.

  • Setting up for the night with @allsanddmusic in Indianapolis.  Grateful for the time during Holy Week at home at St Mary's and time with these dear friends I get to tour with.
  • Pied Piper. Springtime is here.
  • One last fuel stop and we are almost home!  So excited to play tonight at The Journey in Franklin, TN.
  • Viewing a pair of these in the woods today near the venue in VA. Sunday gift, for sure. They sound like a Flicker Woodpecker, but louder and more spectacular up close.
  • Our (bus) address today. Happy 1st day of spring, y'all. ⛄️And I have to say, if I were to imagine God singing with a maternal voice, it might sound a lot like @itslesliejordan -- thankful for these @allsanddmusic songs again tonight. A balm to my soul.
  • NYC, you're standing room only!! @allsanddmusic ❤️
