For any of our friends wondering: Yes there was some terrible explosion downtown Nashville early this morning. Still no confirmation of the source of the explosion, but many buildings damaged for a couple of block radius.
Our studio is about a mile from there and is in good shape. Our house is about 4 miles away, and we felt the concussion. Didn't really understand it until the local news came on and started coverage of it. Praying it was nothing more than an accident. Just letting you all know we're ok. Hope you are too and having a wonderful Christmas morning.

OMG Nashville, can you just chill out for a minute. Tornado's........Covid......another storm that took out electricity to 130 thousand homes. ALSO took out internet.....really? Well Robin Ruddy and I were once again on the lucky side of this last storm. Didn't lose power at home or studio, but it's been a long time since we lived without internet for 3 days. So before I catch up on about 500 emails........and applying for all the Cares Act assistance that I feel sure we're not getting..........a very special day passed yesterday and we promise that we'll have a big party to make up for it...............whenever we can have a big party again. Cinco de Mayo was the 20th anniversary of opening The Parlor Studio. Who knew we could possibly keep that place open for 20 years. Can't tell you how many studios have come and gone in Nashville. We're still standing and proud of it. One day soon we'll actually have clients and musicians back in too. Robin and I had a celebratory shot of tequila to cheer for ourselves. We'll share that love with you all again in the near future. Thanks to all the friends and musicians and clients and engineers and songwriters and tech people and interns and everyone else who has helped us survive this long and many, many more.

Honored to be writing with Robin Ruddy at Parlor Production Studio today! https://www.facebook.com/robin.ruddy.9
We had the incredible pleasure of visiting Robin Ruddy of Parlor Production Studio. She gave us a tour of the beautiful studio which has exquisitely handcrafted touches by her late husband and you can just feel the infused love and care in this place. Robin is an accomplished musician herself, having toured with Rod Stewart and even playing for royalty. We were geeking out at her photo board that included pics with the QUEEN (Dolly Parton) and even Prince Harry. She was so humble and kind and even made a commitment to come to our show this weekend. ❤️ She also penciled us in for a writing session on Monday!! So grateful to have connected with such a wonderful person. We're absolutely loving it in Nashville and so grateful for all the unexpected opportunities that have come up in our short stay. We still have lots of things to do on the schedule and we are looking forward to sharing what we are up to. 😊 Don't forget to tune in for a collaborative livestream with Juno Award winning and Grammy nominated fiddler, Tania Elizabeth, to show you the fun we've been working on this week! The fun starts at 4p, Friday, on this page and YouTube.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who presaved, listened and shared our new single “House From Here”! Also a huge thank you to everyone who made this song possible!
