Elliott and I just got back from Nashville last night and I have to say, it was a really great trip. Even though it was a short trip (two days driving and two days there) it was packed with wonderful things. Pictures are coming, but I left the stupid camera in my mom and dad's car when they picked us up at the rental car place in Dallas. It's coming tomorrow, though. Back to the trip. Here are the highlights...I got to sit in on a co-writing session and hear Elliott and his publisher, Jason, create a song in 30 minutes. Very impressive! Had dinner with Jason and Michael (Elliott's other publisher) and their wives at a really neat restaurant in Franklin. Went to a #1 party at ASCAP given in honor of Elliott and Walt Aldridge. Watched Elliott and Walt do an interview with CMT Insider about the song. Met the Heartland guys at the party. Very, very nice guys! Talked our way into the back door of the Ryman Auditorium to see Heartland perform at the Grand Ole Opry.
All in all, God really went before us and made this trip really special. We have made some friends in Nashville that are the kind that stick! It's so awesome to see how God has had his hand in all of this since way before the beginning. Timing is everything!
We have much to be thankful for and know that this is just the beginning.
