Wasting All These Tears

¡Muy Bueno!

Before going into how busy, and amazing, the last couple weeks have been, I have to give a huge shout out of congrats to Cassadee on her CMT Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year!! My smile was ear to ear while watching Blake hand her the award (watch it here!). It was a great time shooting the video for Wasting All These Tears and to be a part of it is unreal - we are all still so excited! 

Right after the CMT Awards, we got to perform at CMA Fest on the riverfront in Nashville. Thankfully, the rain held up and I couldn't think of a better way to start celebrating the award win than to rock out for all of Nashville!  

After CMA Fest, we got right back on the road with Tim McGraw and had two killer weekends worth of shows with him and Kip Moore. Early one morning we stopped in to perform on Fox & Friends. It started pouring rain during the last song but the crowd came prepared and fun was had by all. Later that same day was Hartford, CT where I got to see a lot of friends and family, which is always nice after being away for long periods of time. Then we hit Philly where we got some of the best cheese steaks on the planet! (We went to Geno's but it's still hard to decide between Pat's, Jim's and Geno's cheese steaks)

From Philly, we were off to Cancun, Mexico. We performed with The Cadillac Three (these guys rock!) at The Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya. This did not suck at all. We had palm trees, drinks with umbrellas, and a whole lot of beach volleyball! A long set of music while looking out over a beach full of people in the moonlight with scattered tiki torches was so beautiful - it was definitely hard to leave. From Cancun, we flew right to Virginia Beach where we picked up the Sundown Heaven Town Tour - not a bad transition at all!

Where The Heart Is

After our show at CRS in Nashville, I headed home to the tri-state area to spend some quality time with family and friends. I got to see my mom on her birthday, visit my grandma, play some guitar with my dad and hang with some good friends that I haven't seen in a while. I am so incredibly lucky and thankful to have such an amazing support system made up of true friends and a loving family.

After some time at home, we flew out to Milwaukee, WI to play a show after a Milwaukee Admirals hockey game. Live hockey games are always fun and it was Cassadee's first hockey game ever. We watched the game right up against the glass and Cassadee even got to ride the zamboni! The show itself was a blast too - so many people singing along and still pumped up from the Admirals win. 

A couple days later, I celebrated St. Patrick's Day by going to support Cassadee in Nashville while she did an acoustic set, and the very next day at The Grand Ole Opry. We were all celebrating an awesome Opry performance as well as "Wasting All These Tears" hitting the platinum mark - congrats Cassadee!! Don't forget to check out her new single "I Wish I Could Break Your Heart". This is one of my favorites and I know it's going to be a hit as well :)

Next week we get back on the bus for shows in Columbus, OH, Clarion, PA and Shippensburg, PA. More soon...
