Got back from practice last night at 3:00am. I’m running a little low on sleep. 10 hours on the road yesterday and another 4 coming up today. You’d think I’d get tired of this stuff. Doc rode with me yesterday. Man, that guy has some stories. Everything from Vince Gill walking up and asking to sit in before Vince was popular to wild times had on tour with, among others, Alan Jackson, Wynona and David Allen Coe. Doc certainly has “been there, done that”. Why is he playing with us? I can’t figure it out. I do know one thing: I’m glad that he is.
I have always wanted not to think about getting bigger than we are. I always want to take things one step at a time and not look more than six months ahead. Damnit, after nights like last night, it’s hard not to.
