So much to tell. Our photo shoot on tuesday was awesome. We went to four different locations: two houses, a tire yard, and a go-kart track. We raced go-karts for an hour and took pictures the whole time...it rocked. We even raced against Jimmy (our photographer), Blaine, and Ron (our bosses from the label) :) and we gave Blaine the fastest kart. At one point, Jordan spun out and began to drive into oncoming traffic. We did have a great time, though. Thank you Jimmy, Katherine, Robin, and Shannen.
The next day, we went in to the studio to work on a cover song for the album. We decided to cover "living on a prayer" by Bon Jovi! Oh yeah. So we went to Camp David, a studio owned by Dave Clo, the guitar player for the band All Star United. We went in at 10am, broke for lunch from 12-2, then hit it until about 3:30am.
The first half of the day was awful. We couldn't get anything going and were actually thinking about scratching the song. We went for a walk with Dave through his neighborhood around 6pm, then tried again from scratch when we got back. The results were amazing. The song miraculously came to life and we all love it. We played it for the label guys today and they were stoked. So far, everybody loves it and can't wait to get it finished and put on the album.
Today, we played our showcase for the label, booking agents, and management companies. We played at a place called The End in Nashville and we rocked the house. It's quite a change playing for a bunch of people standing, staring at you with their arms crossed, but it went great. We now have to choose a management company and booking agent, so please pray for us as we make that decision.
We will have more meetings on Monday and Tuesday of next week, then it's off to Iowa to start us back on the road again.
Talk to you soon,
