So.. Ben (my banjo player), Grant (my guitar player), and I all got to meet Keri Russell the other night. We were playing at the same corporate party she was at. Ok, and I’ve always been obsessed with her because she rocks the curly hair, and was AMAZING in The Waitress and Felicity. When we met her, she was SO incredibly cool. We all went up to meet her, and she was like “HEY!! What’s up?”. She was really genuine, and funny. So before we went on the trip, Ben’s wife had asked him jokingly if he would ask Keri how she does her hair, not thinking he’d actually get the chance to ask her. But sure enough, we’re talking to her and Ben told her about his wife’s question. This is why she’s awesome: She gets out a piece of paper, and writes down EXACTLY what products she uses, what blow dryers she uses, and exactly what she does to make her hair straight or curly. It seems simple, but she had so many people who wanted to talk to her, and still she took the time to do that for Ben. I just think it’s so awesome when cool people don’t know they’re cool. Love her!
We played a show in Nashville a few days ago, and it was so much fun to play again. I was literally jumping around the whole day like “Come on… I want to PLAY.” And the show finally came, and it was awesome. After the show, I signed for four hours, and got to meet so many amazing people. It blows me away that everybody stands in line so long. It makes me so happy, you have no idea.
Hey, got some amazing news this morning. Our Song is number 1 again for the SIXTH WEEK!!! I can’t BELIEVE this. I never dreamed this song would go all the way to the top of the charts. Can’t believe I get to have my first number one party!!!
