Getting Back Home On A Crumbling Road

Heartbreak is one of the fundamental human experiences. It is inevitable that at some point in your life, and probably more than once, someone or something will shatter the world you know. Sometimes, if you are lucky, the person who breaks your heart hands you the tools to fix it. This song, “Crumbling Road”, is my way of trying to tell the tale of that happening in just under four minutes. Even a broken path, if it leads you back home, is a better journey than wandering around lost, hurt, and afraid. All of the experiences of my life have lead me to who I am today, and everyone who has ever broken my heart has made me stronger. 

This is my first music video that I have ever put out that wasn’t a live performance, and I’m pretty proud of it. I directed and edited it myself, and it was shot with the help of Max Porter and Joe Casey. I can’t thank either of them enough. 

I would like to say a huge thank you to Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines for premiering this video on their websites. I grew up with subscriptions to both of those and stacks and stacks of them laying around my room with photos torn out an pinned to my wall, it’s kind of a dream come true to have my name on their lips. 

The Thing About Trying

The Thing About Trying

Here's the thing about trying—if you try and fail you have been given an opportunity to grow and get better, but if you don’t try you have failed yourself and you are admitting defeat by an idea. I may be shy and slightly ashamed of my battered voice, but I’ll be damned if I am going to let my fears that I have created keep me from taking a chance to do something as fun and amazing as performing on The Voice.

Don't Call It A Podcast #2 - With Jessie Bridges

Jessie Bridges is a good friend and an amazing person. We met through Tim Marcus who plays guitar and pedal steel with me on "With or Without" and at live shows Tim gigs with both of us and thought that we would get along so he encouraged me to meet up with her. We grabbed a cup of coffee and started talking one afternoon and wound up talking for hours about everything you can imagine. Jessie is that type of person, the one who is comfortable in her own skin and self assured enough to follow a conversation wherever it goes and stay fully engaged. We sat down the other day for another conversation, only this time with the microphones running. I wanted to share her thoughts on "making it" as she has a very specific point of view. 

Jessie's father is Jeff Bridges, her uncle is Beau, and her grandfather is the great Lloyd Bridges. She comes from a family that is Hollywood royalty and this has given her some insights that 99% of us will not have experienced. So sit back, relax, grab a cup of hot coffee and listen along with us.
