It's easy to fall in love with Georgia. From the oak trees to the green landscapes that carpet the earth. This is my first time in the state and I have ended up in the cute town of Folkston where I performed the official 8th state concert. The show was played on their woodsy train viewing platform.
It seemed fitting to sing beside a palm tree in Florida after singing in the desert beside a cactus in Arizona. We have been having a blast on this tour and it has only just begun. Once again - I met incredible people who not only welcomed the performance on their grounds - they fed me and brought me beer during the show! I streamed from A Stone's Throw RV Park for the 7th official concert on 'My Lil' 48 State Tour'.
I continue to be very blessed on this tour with meeting kind souls. The incredibly gracious staff at Landmark Park welcomed me onto their exquisite grounds to perform in one of their historic buildings. Headlland Church was built in the early 1900's and that is where I streamed live from for this very special Alabama concert. . * Visit my Facebook page to watch all the concerts you might have missed from this tou
The tour is set to start at the beginning of January in Arizona.

At the very least - it will keep me on the road for a year playing a virtual show in each state about once a week. Dipping into Canada is a possibility too - once I'm close to the bord
I purposefully want to set a loose itinerary to be available for extra gigs along the way to maximize my time in each state - ex: private house concerts, special events, concert bookings etc... If you have an event you might want to book me for in the coming months - just reach out. Whether you are in Ohio, Washington or Alabama - knowing a potential gig to add to the calendar ahead of time will help with the trajectory of this traveling extravaganza!
We are 3 states in on this 48 state tour and it seems to get better with every show! Thanks for being in the crowd, for sharing my dream and for all of your inspiring words. Knowing I'm reaching you in a some kind of positive way makes all of these miles make sense. I love what I do and the best feeling is knowing it reaches your soul. Thank-you!
