Out on these Texas plains you can see for a million lives
And there's a thousand exits between here and the state line...
--- Caedmon's Call, 40 Acres

In a few minutes Jason and I are hitting the open road, where we stop, nobody knows. We know we are heading to see our old ETBU friend Jason Fortenberry today and will be in Abilene by next Wednesday. We'll see where the dots connect.

So I won't be posting for about a week, probably. Which, lately, hasn't been out of the ordinary.

Just wanted to share two things before I leave.

The other day I found out some wonderful news. CMT Crossroads, the "groundbreaking" series that puts two musical artists from differing genres together for a concert in which they each cover the others songs, has announced the next concert. This series has brought together Dolly Parton with Melissa Etheridge, Dave Matthews with Emmylou Harris, Travis Tritt with Ray Charles, Wynonna Judd with Heart, John Mayer with Brad Paisley, Martina McBride and Pat Benetar, and Ryan Adams with Elton John.

And next in line has gotten me excited....


Bon Jovi and Sugarland. This could be one of the best yet.

And the second thing is that Jude and Sutton will turn 3 on Saturday. Those baby boys are growing up, wearing big boy underwear and constructing complete sentences and everything. Brings a tear to my eye.

Have a great week.
