Nashville 2010-03-09

Greetings from London,

I arrived several days ago and have begun rehearsals for the up-coming Get Lucky Tour with Mark Knopfler. Today was just our second day back together since we recorded the album, but the band already sounds amazing. This is going to be a great show and tour, everyone in top shape and playing like demons.

Thanks to you all for the enthusiastic response to the new website, so many have sent notes commenting on how up-beat it looks and the ease of getting around on it. Also, the response to the new album has been wonderful, it is flying off the shelves at CD Baby. If you've heard the new record and would care to review it, either good or bad, go to to do so. At the bottom of that page will be a link and your comments will be posted along with the others on that page. CD Baby likes and encourages that interaction and what makes them happy makes me happy.

My friend Henk Quintelier of Belgium conducted an in depth interview with me regarding my life and career for his website and I think it's a very good piece. If you're interested, this link will take you directly there.

Spring is just round the corner now. Back in Nashville it is sunny and in the high 60's and it's even sunny here in London, though not that warm. We'll all be working hard for the next few weeks, but not so hard that we won't hoist a pint or two at the end of the day.
