A year ago today we were on a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, pretty cold and having a great time. The past year has given me so much to be thankful for. Thanks for giving me a job and continuing to be interested in my music. I’ll see you on the road with a new record next year!

Took Jane to Tulsa for the first time this week. She liked it. Also, she doesn’t like taking pictures, which I respect.

So surreal getting to play the room Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds recorded 'Live at Luther College' in. I wore that record out in high school and learned to play guitar by trying to figure out all those parts. Luther, you were a fantastic audience. Apologies to the people in the balcony for not making it in the video 😬. Thanks for making us feel at home.

Turns out folks from Cedar City, Utah are pretty great. Thanks for being an ideal audience and to Southern Utah University for having me!

Thanks again to @thetimmcgraw and @faithhill for having me on the Soul 2 Soul tour. It was a genuine honor to be on your stage and I was blown away by the show. Thanks also to everyone who showed up early and listened to our set!

Take your kid to work day was a huge success (though I am told she slept through my entire set).

Last night in Chicago was wonderful. Sad tonight is the last show for us. If you get a chance to see the Soul2Soul tour, you really need to go. It is fantastic all the way around.

Got to stop by @oakstreetbootmakers today in Chicago and hang with George Vlagos, the guy who started/runs the company. He was kind enough to send me a pair a few years ago and they're the only boots I've worn since. So cool to see someone making such an excellent product.

TCU you were great. Thanks for teaching me how to do the horned frog hand sign, hopefully I'm doing it correctly in this? Samford, we'll see you tonight!

When @TopGolf invites you to hit golf balls in an NFL stadium, you say yes. I think you're supposed to aim at the targets in the field but I was absolutely going for the parking lot in this one (I did not get it there). #topgolfcrush was a blast, thanks for having me!

Minneapolis, you were wonderful. You always feel a lot like home. Thanks for coming out and thanks to @basilicablockparty for having us! Shoutout to @coryjwong for being the MVP of this video and to me for hitting the mic on my ear pack while raising my hands. See you again next time!

Milwaukee, you were a genuine delight to play for. Thanks for braving the weather and thanks to Summerfest for having us! Already looking forward to next time!

Legitimately sad to leave @theamericanclub. My review (as pictured) is two thumbs way, way up. I'd give it more if I had more thumbs. Such an amazing place. Huge thanks to @golfkohler for having us. Now on to Summerfest to play tonight!

Had one of the best days I can remember playing Whistling Straits with college buddies today. The course was, as the kids say, off the chain. Thanks so much to @golfkohler for having us out!
