Lovewell Live 2011

Well, the Lovewell Live 2011 Tour is officially over. We had an absolute blast with Natalie and Brandon. Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show and those that followed this thing online.

Here’s a clip of from tonight’s show. Every night we had a special treat on the side of the stage. Our video guy Jeff would dance so we were the only one’s that could see him. Tonight we had the chance to video this magical moment in the night. We hope you enjoy.

Thanks again. We’ll do it again sometime real soon!

Peoria, IL

Tonight marked the second to the last show of the tour.  Lovewell Live 2011 only has one more night and we couldn’t imagine spending it with anyone else.  Illinois, you guys were loud.  We had a blast hanging out with you tonight.  We love coming to this part of the country.

Today we took the afternoon and went to see the new movie “Thor”, then grabbed some pizza near the theater.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect to get out of the venue and see a little bit of the city.

Wisconsin, we’re coming for you tomorrow.  We’re looking forward to spending the day with you and finishing out this amazing tour.

 

Davenport, IA

Iowa, if you pay any attention to the History Channel you’ve probably seen the show American Pickers.  Well today a few of us took a little trip down the road to see the shop and happened to be there when the star of the show Mike Wolfe was there.  He said the History Channel makes him do a “hero pose” every once in a while, so he had Nathan and Jim do it with him. Seriously though, Mike was a super nice guy and took the time to show us around the shop and hang out.  We had a blast.

Tonight’s show was fantastic too.  You people sang great and looked awesome.  We were here a few months back and it’s always awesome to come to this part of the country.  We’ll see you again real soon.

Kentwood, MI

Michigan, what a great way to end the week.  First off, we love your town.  We spent some of the day today taking the scooters out and finding a stand alone Starbucks.  What’s with all your Starbucks being inside grocery stores?  We finally found one over by the mall, so that was great.  We did accidentally walk into a funeral reception being held at a local coffee shop, so if anyone that was there is reading this, please accept our apologies.

Tonight’s show was fantastic.  You guys sang loud and looked like you were having fun.  We’ve got the next couple days off and then only one more week of The Lovewell Live 2011 Tour.  We’re going to try to squeeze in a Cover Tune Grab Bag next week, but we’ll see.

Any suggestions on songs?

Elida, OH

What an amazing crowd tonight!  The way you guys were packed in there and singing so loud was priceless.  Absolutely amazing.

We spend most of the day over at your mall wandering around.  Some of the crew guys played some baseball in the field and Barry ran across the street to a garage sale and got an awesome backpack.  You know, just another day in Elida.  One thing we know for sure is that hallway in the high school is awesome.  We spent plenty of time checking out those murals.  Well done Bulldogs.

We’ll see you next time.  We had a blast.

Grove City, OH

Ohiiiiooooo.  Tonight was awesome. You people know how to worship.  Thanks so much for coming out and making it a special night. You guys know how to sing.  This was one of the loudest crowds we’ve had in a while.  And it sounded great.

Today we spent most of the day recording again after a quick trip to your lovely Guitar Center.  We can’t wait to share this worship project with you.  I think it’s going to be something really special.  We’re still in Ohio tomorrow, but we’re headed Northwest of here.

Elida we’ll see you tomorrow.

Somerset, KY

Kentucky, you guys were loud tonight!  What a great night.  There were times when you were singing so loud it was hard to hear what was happening on stage.  We loved every second of it.

Today we spent most of the day down the street at East Somerset Baptist Church recording for a new project we are working on.  We’re looking forward to sharing it with you soon.  A very huge ‘Thanks’ to the church for allowing us to take up some space and make some noise today.

Ohio, we’re packing up and getting ready to head your way tonight.  We’re going to do a little more recording tomorrow so we’ll try to get you some photos or video from there tomorrow.

 

Tyler, TX

Nothing like a big ol’ East Texas party to finish out this short little run before Easter.  Thanks Tyler for making Good Friday such a great one.  We had a blast.

So, check out these fancy “Lovewell” drums that Robby got tonight from Risen Drums.  If you look close they are the same texture and design as our ‘Lovewell’ heart.  Risen you guys hit a home run on these things.  Thanks so much for making them look awesome.

We’re all headed home for Easter we’ll see you again next week.  Everyone enjoy your families.

Edna, TX

Texas, you know how to throw a party. We had sparks and fire tonight and everything. We spent most of the day traveling to get here from Atlanta, but you guys made it worth it for sure. We’re not entirely sure where this humidity came from but we’re glad you stuck it out with us. Tomorrow we’re in Tyler and then we’re home for Easter with our families.

Kind of a weird week but we’re having fun. Tyler, we’ll see you tomorrow bright and early.

Muncie, IN

Indiana.  You people are awesome.  Hey, we wanted to do something a little different tonight and recognize the folks at the show that are on Twitter.  Now, you guys know that we love the Twitter and spend a great deal of time there.  When you guys talk to us, we are most definitely paying attention.  So here’s a few folks from the show tonight that we’d like to simply say ‘Thanks For Coming’ to:
