Hannah had -- the little family been with her mom and dad.
Family friend named Steve Smith -- and Steve was a good friend of my family he taught me to play guitar as a kid and and his son -- went to college or -- and so we I have got to know each other displayed a lot of little bears vessels and you know just small things in Arkansas.
And we made some contacts in Nashville -- Nashville songwriters association.
And the lady named -- Fleming was a judgment of whether contest and we had a -- in the contest and she invited the three restaurants in Nashville.
And play for and and we moved out a couple years later to Nashville and -- -- our staff there and Qaeda the songwriter was actually inducted into the songwriters hall of fame.
And so we played a medley of her songs -- her induction -- the hall of fame.
And -- -- -- the president big machine records was there that night because Taylor Swift was giving an award for songwriter of the year.
And so it's just kind of and one -- happenstance things and clean -- up with a record deal.
And they now okay that I wanna -- -- the years in the making overnight.
That's stories but I know that you're also I saw you grew up an hour's drive away that was just happenstance you did then get together later and you back here you know.
-- -- kids categorize them that we did have the same upbringing which is a big part of who we are -- have.
Born in raises in Arkansas and really really talk about our -- and Larry come from because that's really important that we talk about that a lot.
Yes and he has had many milestones and -- also played the opry since tell me about that coming up some of the things you've got to do you even before releasing your alma.
Finally we had a great year and without money you know with our our we -- first thing only -- our opera debut on March 5 and and Brad Paisley actually -- -- and brought us on an offering and and told everyone that would be joining him for -- that summer which is our first major tour just so much fun.
And for after that -- William -- this -- and into the year Lady Antebellum and we just -- you know 2012 can't possibly compared this year -- that we had so many great first you know from.
Not -- -- that run and I -- very end.
The rest of blood -- -- -- summer -- and and that's going to be long afterwards been on its.
Like almost six months so we're really proud of them -- they're so talented and really supportive -- again.
Yes and it's a tour -- right it's it is view it's little big town and I and I -- -- and anyway and then -- Eli young man how is -- an ad leaving QV audiences take it that is just all ban the whole time all larger group.
I think is really neat and I think you know just kind of going out on our first weekend so.
Far it's been actually incredible disk that -- here and that in the class in the integrity and the actual music in the shows like it's one of me.
-- incredible -- we've been apart that's like if you go in it you'll be wowed us because every single act his act is absolutely incredible step.
As it as a new Treo just get our second single out there it's like we have so much to learn from them.
And tell me what -- -- second thing all of get out there and know what else is can people find on the album and other songs he says that you're singing.
I don't even that you -- inspired by with all of your backgrounds are similar so what are the things what do you thing about.
We've got a team called skinny -- and that's about something that we've all then you know in the country and it tells the story of kind of girl in -- car in the truck runs out of gas they're out the middle of the country and it's in the summertime it's hot you know some things we've just got to got to do it in the high.
That's song that.
-- -- and I get a break get sad songs and -- -- -- a -- song that's about.
It's called him on drink -- -- I think to be something people are latching onto it says it's -- -- that kind of relate to drink to -- what kind of guy you're dating him.
And that I we've done we really covered a wide variety of of what we feel like we can be and plus with the three extra.
Bonus -- at cracker -- nearly got to do that pretty says ourselves and -- -- -- and we write all of a sense.
That is is a fun addition -- -- you know I think we've recovered a lot of what we're passionate about.
There's also some commentary -- and I I'm really thankful that's on the album and dean actually read it and then it's kind of an code it -- this specific people are people in my life that.
It's just like all three of us are saying thank you Wear the land that we grew up in the people that really -- -- triggered gains and always told us that we can view whenever we set our minds you and that's a big reason Larry here today is not only from the people in Nashville that -- gotten behind the dream that we have in the music that we create this organically between that period aspect.
Back home there's a lack of -- you know when we -- -- on the opry it was like 150 people that get seven hour to see if they -- and it's just like.
That's how it is in Arkansas that -- is in the South Africa how it is in the country music industry everybody supports -- -- -- a -- family.
