2022 has been a busy year! It started with thirty shows over sixty days in South Texas, and continued in early spring with a whirlwind of weekend events in Virginia and North Carolina. Since then, it involved performing almost nightly in Gatlinburg, Tennessee while traveling weekends to play booked shows and festivals in states as far away as Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan. In the summer and fall, we’ve loved performing locally in East Tennessee at venues such as Anakeesta, Dollywood, and for the City of Gatlinburg’s “Tunes N’ Tales” program. However, recent changes to the band have forced us to work much harder (and many, many more hours each week) to keep the music going. Meanwhile, we’ve struggled to keep up with daily obligations in our personal lives. This month has been one of the toughest yet, as we’ve encountered health challenges that made performing practically impossible.
We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel future performances and move back to Virginia. We have a lot of administrative tasks to tackle, but after that, we hope to rest and enjoy the holiday season with friends and family before pursuing other interests in the New Year.
Words can never fully express the gratitude we feel toward so many of you who’ve supported our family over the six years we’ve toured as a band. While it may take us a while to engage many of you individually, please know how much we love and appreciate each one of you who’ve made this journey possible. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and know how much we appreciate the love and support you’ve shown us over the last six years. We love you all! ❤️
