Things I Love About The South

Thanks to all you folks who came out and supported our first Trigger Hippy shows this past week! It was a blast (albeit ridiculously hot and humid) and we had a great time. Hope to do it again sometime soon.I've always had sort of a love / hate relationship with the South (as I think many folks do) but after some pondering, it turns out that I just plain love the South. Here's why:

1. Music. I don't believe I need to explain this one. 2. People. Some of the nicest, most genuine people i've met are from the South. 3. Women. Let's face it. There's a disproportionate amount of really beautiful women down there. Drives a single boy crazy. 4. Sun Drop in the glass bottle. It's delicious. And we don't have it in California. (as far as I know) 5. BBQ. One of my favorite activities is trying out new BBQ places. I'm such a dork that I actually carry a list of my favorite BBQ places in my wallet. Needless to say, most of the places on that list are in the South. 6. North Carolina in the Fall. 7. Charleston, SC

Don't get me wrong -- I love a lot of other places too. It's just been on my mind after spending a lot of time in Nashville this year. Hope to get back there soon!

In the meantime, we'll be gearing up for our Fall tour of the East coast. (yes, we love you guys too! Especially Boston. You guys are crazy!) Hope to see ya'll out there!! J
