For our hearing impaired reps, here is the full transcript:
What is goin' on guys? I cannot even think of where to start when it comes to thanking you guys for, man, all the support all you guys do, all your enthusiasm, all the stories you guys have shared with me and my team, my band, my crew, everyone back in Nashville over this last album campaign, especially the "Woman, Amen" stuff. Just all the support for this project--it’s been such an enjoyable ride for me.
You know, the journey itself has been the reward. It was so fun making this record, so fun writing it, recording it, working together with my team and working together with you guys to get the news out there to spread the news of the new album being released.
Looking back on it, it was such a frenzied, kind of 18 days of album release week. But really just a much longer campaign, starting all the way back to when I first started writing this record. Kind of laying the groundwork. And to see you guys embrace the work, embrace the music and see your faces out there at these shows now, especially when we’re doing the new songs—it means the world to me.
Especially with the new album release, and just playing new songs and knowing that you guys are gonna be down front supporting us means so much to me and the guys in the band.
So, I can’t say enough. Man, it’s been a great number of years. This last 18 months have been so special for me. Just having the time of our lives out here on the tour now because you know we did all the work, made the record, and now we get a chance just to enjoy summertime and the shows and this Mountain High Tour with Brothers Osborne and LANCO.
So we’ll see you all out here! Me and the guys refer to it not so much as a tour as a celebration of the music and we’re having a great time celebrating every night.
Thank you guys so much!
Thank you, Dierks! This means the world to us!
