I'm sitting in Dulles Airport (Washington, D.C.) with a 6 hour layover.
But don't feel sorry for me; I'll be boarding a plane to Dublin, where I'll begin a 2 1/2 week stroll through Ireland, Scotland, Italy and Switzerland, before jetting back to Nashville just in time for the American Music Association festival and conference. From there, a couple weeks in Austin before going out to San Francisco, where my buddy, Buddy Miller, has invited me to join him in his stage band at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, where we'll be backing up Dan Penn, Bill Anderson, Gurf Morlix, and Lillie Mae. Lots of other stuff coming up after that, not the least of which—The 11th Annual Gram Parsons Birthday Hoot in Austin. Stay tuned for more details, and use plenty of sunscreen!
