I didn’t write a blog on Wednesday like I have every week for the last 3 years because I was lucky enough to be playing my first recording session in Nashville!

The tour is officially over, and I'm trying my best to occupy myself with my newfound spare time. Here's how I entertain myself:
This week I talk about two music festivals, recording a toon from the age of the crooners, and Trans Siberian Orchestra tour prep.
In my first Nashville blog, I laid out a couple of areas I wanted to work on: spiritual growth, my musicality, my appearance, and my equipment. This week I’ll explain a little of what I’m doing in 2 of those 4 areas- musicality and equipment.
Last week I posted a blog about the areas I’m going to focus on improving before I move to Nashville in August. While I’ll be attempting to get better in all my categories this week, this week’s blog will lay out my strategy for diet and exercise.
I’m moving to Nashville in August to take the next big step in my music career. I’ve also been writing how-to blogs for the past two years on how to be successful as a musician. While I’ve tried my best to follow the advice I give, Nashville is going to be the first chance I’ll have to really put what I preach into action.
