Walkin’ in Memphis – Wayland Tour Log 3/5/14
Well, where do I start?
Bobaflex broke down on the way to St. Louis yesterday. So, we took over as the headliner of last night’s show. We played a great show and the sound on stage was loud and inspiring.
After the show, we planned to drive five hours to Memphis for morning radio. That did not happen.
The five-hour drive turned into a bumpy, freezing cold, 11-hour drive. Chip actually fell asleep in the driver’s seat at one point because we sat still for more than hours!
Mitch called into the radio station and did interviews while he was driving this morning.
Once we arrived in town, we went to our buddy Zach’s house (he’s in a little rock n roll group called Shinedown) for lunch and showers.
After my shower, I played every single one of his guitars he had sitting out. (I had his permission, of course! Ha ha!) Tyler, Zach and the famous Matt Healy went to a Memphis BBQ buffet for lunch.
We’re all looking forward to the show tonight. We love playing with Zach and Zack because we all end up jamming and singing harmony together during each other’s sets. That what music is supposed to be about. We’re still laughing about the last group of shows we did together in December. We had so much fun.
Tomorrow morning, we’ll go to Nashville to spend every last dollar we have on a used trailer. I really hope this thing lasts; it’s been such a stressful situation.
