Ten Years, Ten Songs

Dear friends.
2014 marks ten years of me pursuing and doing music for a living. Ten years ago I was a few weeks fresh from graduating college, single, proud owner of a beat up Volvo station wagon with a dream of taking my songs on the road. A decade later, with multiple albums under by belt, a loyal band, a wife and a kid, and over 1500 stages and shows played, I could not be more grateful for the opportunity that you, my fans, have given me to do what I love for a living. To celebrate, I have recorded, and we are releasing, Ten Years, Ten Songs, Solo Acoustic next Tuesday on July 15. It is a retrospective of sorts, with songs from each album, some well known and loved like "Live Forever" and "What Would I Do Without You," some revisited and re-imagined like "Steal My History" and "Anywhere But Here," and other more obscure songs like "Rolling Around" and "Good Time Girl." We hope you enjoy this album, as we spend this summer in the studio working on a new record for early 2015, full of new songs and new directions. May the journey continue....

Ten Years, Ten Songs, Solo Acoustic.

Memphis Activities

I wanted to encourage y'all to make a weekend out of June 7 and experience my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee when you join us for the Moon River Music Festival this summer. Come early, stay late.

Here is my Top Ten list of things to to see and do while you are there, in no particular order.

1. EAT THE BBQ.
I have traveled the world and eaten lots of BBQ - Memphis's still reigns for me. The historic Rendezvous is a must visit, with career waiters, dry-rub ribs and location in a downtown alley. My other favorite is Central BBQ. Get the pork sandwich and cheese plate, trust me.

2. PEABODY HOTEL.
This big, grand downtown hotel has great rooftop views, but the real fun is in ordering a drink and people watching in its classic and enormous lobby. Expect everything from southern belles, proms, weddings to business travelers. It never gets boring.

3. SOUTH MAIN.
Take a stroll past the Orpheum Theater, peek in all the art galleries, or grab a bite to eat at the Arcade Restaurant. The best spot for a late night hang is Ernestine and Hazels. Order a cold beer and a burger, then start dropping money in the jukebox. Spindini is another great restaurant on this street as well.

4. CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM.
Speaking of South Main, The National Civil Rights Museum is at the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. King was murdered. It's now a beautiful memorial to his lifetime of work.

5. SHELBY FARMS.
Head out to Shelby Farms for a bike ride, a horseback ride, a kayak trip, or even just a scenic run. You'll see buffalo, longhorns and acres upon acres of wide open space.

6. OVERTON SQUARE.
The festival venue, Levitt Shell, is in my favorite neighborhood, Midtown. My grandparents lived one block from the park, right next to the Overton Park Zoo. Visit the Zoo, walk the Square and explore all its shops, restaurants and theater district. Play 9 at Overton Park's golf course, where my grandfather taught me how to play. You also may want to check out Martin Music, where I have bought many guitars over the years. We also recorded "Good Light" at Ardent Studios, right in the heart of this area.

7. WISEACRE BREWERY.
My friend Kellan Bartosch and his brother just fulfilled a 10-year dream to open their own microbrewery in Memphis. Kellan was dreaming of this during the same time I was dreaming of a music career. They have a great taproom out back.

8. AUTOZONE PARK.
Catch a Redbirds game at Autozone Park. The Redbirds are the Cardinals AAA team and have a wonderful ballpark right downtown by many of best historic hotels and food spots.

9. COOPER YOUNG.
Another great neighborhood is the Cooper Young district. Walk the streets to see the beautiful tree-lined blocks of historic houses. Eat a Curry Turkey Pita at Young Ave Deli, buy some vinyls at Goner Records and check out one of the best drum shops in America, Memphis Drum Shop.

10. FOOD.
You really have so many great options. Here are a few of my other favorites I haven't mentioned yet: Hog and Hominy, Belmont Grill, Hueys (get the West Coast Burger), Germantown Commissary, Buckleys, Folks Folly, Boscoe's. The list could go on for days.

See you on June 7th!
Drew
