Yesterday we had the amazing opportunity to play at the NHL ALL STAR Fan Fair. Thanks to the National Hockey League, Honda and everyone else involved for letting us hang out with you guys for a couple hours. We also got to go to the game last night. It was a blast.
Anyone out there see the show yesterday?

Last night we had the amazing opportunity to share the stage with the great Steven Curtis Chapman and Hunter Hayes at Nashville’s famous Ryman Auditorium as a part of Sam’s Place. Hunter played a little mandolin on “Dear Younger Me” and Steven joined us for the song “You Reign” which he co-wrote with us, and we’ve never played together.
Thanks to the Ryman for having us and thanks to all the folks that came out. What an amazing, memorable night.
