On The Front Porch With My Friends

Tonight was a special night. I got to play just outside the Opry's front doors (yes they won't let me inside yet). Thom Shepherd asked me to play along side himself, Renae Truex (tremendous fiddle player and a member of the band Cowboy Crush) and John Calzavara (laid back and easy goin' dobro player).

We had a great time! Thom let me sing a few. I even got to pick a little on my guitar -- wasn't very good -- but at least Thom didn't yell at me.

Hope we can do it again. If you were at the Opry tonight and took pictures email 'em. I'll put 'em in this space.

Thanks For letting me sit in with ya Thom.

With the help of hundreds of my closest friends, We are finalists for CMT's Music City Madness video contest!

Whew! I was getting nervous we weren't gonna make it.

Let me try to explain it for ya. Remember every year the NCAA basketball tourney in March, otherwise known as March Madness? Well thats how this contest works kinda. There are 64 finalists and each finalist is paired against another each round. So all we have to do is win 6 times in a row.

Ok Ok I know that's a lot of winning and a lot of voting but we can do it! The competition is tough and we are going to have to work hard to get the word out about this contest.

You can vote as many times as you like. Just click here to get started voting.

I am in the upper left bracket so you can find me quicker!

Be sure to check with my web site or for daily updates and info.

How do you vote? Great question. When you click on the link above CMT has a great instruction page to help you.
