Hey everybody welcome what you just heard me talking about Kenny -- -- is here welcome mr.

Important vividly you don't remember -- dollars and go to the so called the morning -- -- can Juliette.
-- recipes and I hear some friends in Georgia middle that Gary are you guys are all musicians and as you describe it.
You guys open for you don't know Jack you got doesn't the preview open do you think they're gonna give us your band together -- -- blue sky riders.
And then Vincent van that Gary and I started four years ago or three years ago and then now.
Shortly after we talked about doing it -- we brought Georgia and make it -- you know what was it how did you guys get together -- -- Think the talent like people are wont to do Nashville Tennessee to loved great songs with the song -- down in Nashville for a new album he was doing.
And I was one of those lucky break here is that you know we all put our names on pink pong balls and people.
I got to right -- Kenny and you know we basically come up.
Benelux strict sense but when you federal writer -- -- knew how how are you part of it and well yeah.
You know just.
Songwriters for hire them nationally have been for twenty years you know she's written -- -- hits on some -- third and then.
And real -- -- the national hall of -- for some headaches that he is eighteen and one -- so.
You know when he.
Came -- natural that that was just that we.
You know we were the circle when he gravitated to an end we were just we -- -- -- to -- -- but we end up being a songwriter and -- he can't.
For a lot of people who -- or are musicians and you don't seem to make it right away they.
They become songwriters like that I guess -- tell you one thing you can say yeah yeah -- it's.
Few days and -- felony.
Yes I think that what I was struck by the fact that they're both strong lead singers who have been.
Put into the some passion if you you know that they some for some reason -- careers as artists have been.
He coached by their writing and I -- we'll.
The waited to do something really credible and do something really fun and good would be to work with writers and not gravitate to hit.
Performance why that why do I want to do something where -- Performers -- -- just because.
I think it can go and do the hit performer fame is would be cut I think what I want to do as a wannabe writer alignment right my own stuff.
And in this way we -- three of us right everything together.
And it's really fun there's never a loss for ideas and direction -- -- -- we go and what we've discovered when we read together.
There's sort of a fourth Kennedy in the room that's who's got right.
I know you got -- as a mentor for awhile you'll be here the next couple days or New York City.
I have right and -- finance and suddenly thought yeah yeah reaction back and I mean to this this this new adventure.
I think it's it's been now.
It's been very good and nasty and home was -- the first night for the New York Times so have a good feeling about that because.
The reaction -- -- not take care.
Yeah OK -- actually.
He's got excited.
Yeah it's okay these women like you it's a good yeah exactly.
And so as the female in the and you mean you're so what are the -- -- you guys are Greta you know you stay at hotel as you did you read more about how that -- our name in the tour events with.
Twelve people well it's -- -- is yeah.
Are you -- you know no thank -- It seemed like we did really great that call on that note -- here now is an illusion that it and he didn't -- name any guys in the lives letters from.
I don't yeah yeah.
How do you honor I -- what's the next what's the next thing for you guys need to continue -- this.
Oh yeah we're we're planning on starting and another record -- -- -- our first record I should stay present cancer first record comes out generally 22 yeah finally home -- Was -- a little story behind it finally will finally home is a line from the -- -- a writer which is it's sort of like things.
A couple of accidentally we had planned on writing on but he came out that way.
What's the reaction musical successes -- business as usual we're not we're not really taking the pulse of the music world right now -- just sort of staying focused on FaceBook Twitter didn't want to get -- -- -- telling them and how how does that mean I know you know where -- -- get out there and all of us be honest and I think FaceBook and Twitter sort of like I thought still having a hard time.
You'll see that I actually talking to people that I went to high school -- you know -- graceful way we want to the last holdouts and you.
Your real seriously I mean that is how do you reach people really.
There's not a lot of brick and mortar record stores to go to there's not a lot of record companies to yeah product from.
So we're taking it real serious that that's the way for us to reach as many people we love the fact that in all -- shows we have -- people come up and say.
As we expected.
They came for -- what they're leaving loving this -- What kind of music is and how would you describe it -- somebody kind of.
Analysts heavy metal -- -- And -- yeah.
There and how do you think yeah it's storytelling it's it's a little bit country a little bit of -- -- well it's hot it's really hard to describe.
It's certainly doesn't know I don't -- three of us I think people want to see you give me just get -- to -- -- I think so OK okay then yeah.
I think I think.
We have a couple we do like to -- on Friday and Saturday so I think -- so -- your -- -- -- -- -- and we've been opening for me now for love the creation of even on the -- for us.
So let's get a -- and it.
Would it mean I don't.
So you know -- very possible if somebody wants to see blue -- -- as possible will be opening forgetting lines.
That's really really coming -- Ideally we have an equivalent site.
-- -- and the end dot com and you were chronicling this whole process and being me going on the -- -- -- together in this media isn't line.
If people wanna check that they can't make this game and I think I got -- pregnant and I used to that -- -- -- anything on that later this so called dream.
-- -- -- -- -- You know -- wanna back up a little bit because yes about the social network thing and it has a lot to do with this intro that.
What we rely on it is the people who come to see innocent people who -- -- stay here telling each other about it because.
We can't really rely on the record business to promote an -- over forty.
And being liberal.
So we have to rely on our audience to tell each other about it.
And in that way that would ties to that is that when I first met Georgia and the three of us started writing together I went home and called a buddy of mine I was really excited about what we had.
And I said yeah this is -- kind of feel like I'm eighteen again and start again.
This is William most people leave fans to go solo music that I advise you against this this -- really want to you're too old.
Oh boy oh yeah I had a friend.
He should be retiring you should be -- under way and think about you know heading out of passion not that's that's not me that's not what I do.
And I -- Georgia -- to -- to dream that night and when I got back to Nashville the three of us wrote a song called dream.
And that's what we'll be hearing what -- meant to -- and I want to let guys get set up before we go out any last comments -- go to folks out there who would be just in coming to see you.
We talk about being a -- he -- I don't think my name.
It's my 35 birthday for that.
-- -- -- actually got the chance -- less than that but you know.
Thank you guys for coming here really appreciate it.
