(Repost from Trail of the Lonesome is Relocating!

Hey guys, Doug here. I am very excited to let everyone know that we are in the process of relocating to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Knoxville has been pretty good to us, but we've missed the mountains, and every visit we've made to NC has been pulling and encouraging us to make a move.

Being an Air Force brat myself, it's always a little complicated when someone asks where I'm from or where we are from. The short version is always and will always be that we are from Southwest Virginia. That's home. For the foreseeable future, though, we will be making our home in Brevard, NC, and we couldn't be more excited to get back to the mountains and continue making music.

This means we won't be playing a ton of shows this summer or fall, but it will give us more time to write and practice, so hopefully we'll have some new recordings before the end of 2016. We will keep everyone up to date!

Big News Soon

I hate it when websites post BIG NEWS SOON posts, so here goes one.

There is going to be a big change around here in the next couple of months. I'm not at liberty to discuss any of the details publicly yet, but it is very exciting for myself and my family. As soon as I am able, I will let everyone in on the news, but until then I'm sure you'll all be waiting with bated breath #sarcasm #itisexcitingthough

Back At It

I'm playing my first show since October tomorrow night at Boogaloo's in Sevierville, TN. Boogaloo's is always a blast, and I hope some of you guys can make it out!

Last Show For a While

Tomorrow at Boogaloo's will be my last show for a while as I will be spending the next few months working as a strength coach with some high school wrestlers. Come out and have a good time!

Fall and Winter Plans

The rest of fall and winter will entail working on new tunes for my next release and the debut full-length album from Trail of the Lonesome. Alicia and I are writing now, and will be recording demos through the winter. Hoping to hit the studio next spring. In the meantime, we will be playing shows here and there, so be sure to come check out the new songs as we iron them out.

School's Out Tour 2015

Friends, as this school year winds down I'll be hitting the road a bit. Spread the word and come hang! Alicia will be with me for most of these shows, and some other friends will be playing at several dates as well. Keep an eye out for the (very similar) Trail of the Lonesome tour poster coming soon.

Happy Days and Celebrations

I got to wish a Happy Mother's Day to my mom, my wife, my mother-in-law, and my sister (whose birthday is today!). I am incredibly blessed to have so many wonderful women in my life. Celebrations will continue into this weekend, when I get to spend my birthday in one of my favorite places in the world doing two of my favorite things in the world. That's right, I'll be in Brevard, NC playing music and drinking craft beer with good friends. What an amazing life!
