I have been able to see and do so many great things in my life. Every time I think about it, I’m blown away at how good God has been to me. Today is one of those days.
Ever since I can remember, it has always been a dream of mine to play the Ryman Auditorium. There is so much history in that room. The artists that performed there over the years were the artists that paved the way for music today. When you walk into the place, you just feel it. It’s hard to describe.
Tonight is the night we get to play the Ryman. And if that’s not crazy enough, we get to play it two nights in a row. Both sold out. I can’t lie and say I’m not a little nervous. I think it’s a good nervous though. It’s the kind of nervous that makes you totally aware of your surroundings. It makes you take it all in and not miss a second.
I’m sure I will be replaying the next two nights in my head forever. One day I’ll be able to tell my kids and my grandkids about these special days. The greatest part about it is that my best friend is here to make sure I never forget. She’s also my wife.
I’m a normal guy getting to live an extraordinary life. I don’t deserve it. But I pray whether extraordinary continues to be the norm or not, I’ll never forget what and who it’s all about. Blessed.
