We're back in the room after a long, cold walk. For those waiting to hear... I did not make the semi-finals this year. I've made lots of new friends and fans and congratulate the guys from my venue who are moving on. Thank you Charlotte Blues Society for sending me here this year and your faith in my talents. And to my friends, fans and family, thank you for your support, love and encouragement. It means more to me than anything.
Memphis this year has been a year of brothers in music. I can't believe how many bear hugs from fellow musicians I've had so far. I believe you are made better by making those around you better and by supporting their accomplishments and dreams. It's good to see that there are many, many others who believe the same thing in the world of music. I am blessed and happy to no end.
