“Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares”Here's A Quarter (Travis Tritt)
Twenty-Five or Twenty-Six?
As of April 4th, 2017, I am officially a quarter of a century in age. Gone are the days of youthful stupidity, now when I’m being dumb I have no arbitrary number to assign to my stupidity, I’m simply being dumb. Which reminds me, I should stop being dumb now… I’ll put that on my to-do list.
Okay, to be honest, I don’t care much about age. In my opinion, you’re never too old to be immature, and you’re never too young to take life seriously. Sure, there’s the crushing weight of the cultural stigmas behind age, but that’s par for the course in life.
Why The Post?
In the spirit of truth, the stuff about my birthday is just a red herring. I am actually writing this post to let y’all know that I have started picking songs to record for my next album, and barring any crazy life developments, I should hit the studio in the next few months, with a release date planned for late Summer/early Fall of this year. I’m also working on a way to get y’all involved in the project, whether that looks like a Kickstarter or something different, I’ll be sure to let you know! I think it’s cool to be involved in the crazy process of making an album, and this next one is going to be really special, coming at a really cool time in my life.
I can’t say much, yet! And I hate when artists make posts like this, but hypocrisy abounds in all our lives if we’re being honest. I WILL say that there are a couple of core themes that I am focusing on, and it is starting to feel a bit like a concept album, which is really exciting, too.
All I’m asking at this point is for your prayers and good vibes, as well as coming out to see me at a few shows this spring! I’m already playing songs off my next album, and would love to get your ears on it. (You can check out one of them, Washed, here)
Stay tuned, friends! I’l see you down the road.

Deception or redemption, I guess only time will tell
I have faith and the knowledge that God gave us a gift
