San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, you guys are awesome. Your city is awesome too. You’re weather…. maybe a different form of awesome. Seriously though. We spent the day in your lovely city, down near the River Walk, Starbucks twice, and topped it off with you guys. A perfect way to finish the day here. Thanks for spending your time with us.

We’ve only got one more show on this little tour then it’s time for a little time off. Lufkin, let’s see if we can finish this thing out strong. We’ll see you soon.

Thanks again San Antonio.

The Roadshow – Ontario, CA

Wow, Wow, Wow. Ontario California.  What a blast.  This place was awesome tonight.  You guys came to worship and we could tell.  Thanks for letting us share the evening with you.  We’re about to wrap this thing up and we can honestly say that this is hands down the best Roadshow we’ve had to date.  Every year we come back here you guys are more and more generous to us.  We’ve got a couple more stops and then it’s home for a couple weeks, but thanks for a memorable night.  We’ll see you again real soon.

What was your favorite part of the night?

The Roadshow – Spokane, WA

Spokane. What can we say? You guys were awesome. I know it seems like every night we are getting on here and saying that the crowd was awesome and we had a blast in your town, but Spokane, tonight the crowd was awesome and we had a blast in your town.

Seriously though. What an amazing crowd. We intentionally save these last two weeks for the end because we knew you guys would be nuts and you have no disappointed. These past few shows have been absolutely insane and we can’t wait to wrap this thing up with California next week.

We’re headed home for a few days with our families, but we’ll be back in Ontario on Thursday. Thanks for hanging out with us tonight Washington. We’ll see you again next year.

The Roadshow – Boise, ID

Dang Boise. What a fun show. You guys were rowdy tonight.  We got up at 3 this morning to get here and you guys brought the energy.  Thanks for hanging out with us tonight.  I realized that we haven’t really shared the setlist from this tour so I think it’s time to do that. We have a shorter set this time so we tried to pack them in here. Let us know what you think.

Thanks Boise. We’ll see you again next year.

The Roadshow – Phoenix, AZ

Dang Phoenix. You guys were unreal. Thanks so much for making it out tonight.  We had an absolute blast.  You guys were nuts.  Here’s what’s cool too.  We got to see our buddy Matt Maher tonight.  We love this place.

Earlier today some of us took off into the mountains on the scooters. What a beautiful desert.  A couple others got to go golfing and Lecrae went to go drive some race cars or something.  What a great day in Arizona.

Thanks again folks.

The Roadshow – Lubbock, TX

Lubbock Texas. You people are loud. This is why we love Texas. You people were loud from the beginning to the very end.

I decided tonight to put a picture of Barry on here.  Look at that guy.  What a stud.  If there were any doubt, let it me known right here on MercyMe.org that we love us some Barry Graul.  I mean, what’s not to love.

Anyway.  Thanks Texas.  We’re headed to Colorado Springs tonight.  Looking forward to some beautiful Colorado weather tomorrow.

Thanks again Lubbock.  We’ll see you next time.

Corpus Christi

Tonight was one of those shows that you walk away from loving your job.  The crowd in Corpus tonight was amazing.  You guys were so loud we wish the night didn’t have to end.  Thanks for coming out and spending your evening with is.  Texas we’re looking forward to an amazing weekend with you.  El Paso, you’re next.  We’ll see you tomorrow.

Barry And His DR Buddy…

barry_and_friend

Hey all…I was just going through some old pics in my iPhoto and I came across our trip to the Dominican Republic, and this picture. I think that maybe he was Barry’s long lost uncle, or maybe this is just two guys chillin’ on a park bench, either way….thought you’d all enjoy it. If you felt like adding a caption as to what these two could be talking about, feel free.

I like to think they were talking about the current economic climate…. or sharing recipes for making the best homemade granola… or maybe this guy is just staring Barry down and wishing he had a cool black t-shirt instead of having put on a pink shirt this morning.

What do you think?

Mike.
