  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • "Joyful joyful we adore thee,
God of glory Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flow'rs before thee,
Op'ning to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sun and sadness,
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness 
Fill us with the light of day."
-Henry Van Dyke, 1907

  • Mt. Shasta. Sunday morning coming down. Bus views. “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity” ― John Muir
