People ask me in conversation, "so, have you moved to Nashville permanently?".

How do you answer any question about permanence?

This fall will mark the first time since leasing a house in Nashville last February that I have spent 4 consecutive weeks here. I have family, friends, pets, and belongings in Austin, so of course, that is a home to me. But at this point in life, is anything permanent? Especially for a musician.

My kids are grown and travel almost as much as me; my daughter is on a road trip that includes Glacier National Park in Montana (after returning from a month in Zambia). And my son, who is half of the duo Well Worn Soles (whose debut record came out this month, produced by yours truly) is a full time traveling musician as well.

"Home is where you hang your Hat"? Well, I don't wear a hat, but I do lay my head down in a lot of different places all around the world, and it's amazing how many of them feel like home.
