Yes that's what I hear the core Michael and turlough helium tyler have rejoining us in this. podcast idea came about because Haley texts me. And you're like I think we should really talk about some real life stuff and I was like I think we should do and then of course like give me a tiny little nugget. I'm like let's just do a podcast. It's like going going to share all the things and here we are and we made it happen within like week now brought about so. What inspired you to want to like? Talk about some real stuff off.

She is live two years old Jones suit and I think that's what encouraged us to join. This mom's group are walk are walking group. Because we're all just like in the trenches trying to figure this out how to navigate marriage carriage navigate babies how to navigate careers and it's just overwhelming. Sometimes I mean marriage is a a whole nother ballgame game once you put kids into the mix as we all know and I don't know but just be good to gain knowledge and share knowledge in that department. So how have you guys navigator marriage starting with live with like a hedge. What was your love sort of like when I met the cottage on meet was instant and did you know right away that this is the one what tyler share? y'All try to make this short and sweet but we met through a mutual friend. Initially we were just kind of friends and we were hanging out and so much to the point where highly was on the set me up with one of her friends. And I'm like no. I didn't really feel in that way. anyways we so we were hanging and one thing led to the next and after a few months of Kinda hanging out. I was on the road at the time super busy so we weren't hanging out a ton but Ended up. We had wanted cigars night at one of our friends houses and Those July first and I remember that day because I was the first I night that Haley kissed me hailing you okay. We talk just play. We still debate to this a story but now that was kind of a night where we have kind of something here so we ended up hanging out quite a bit it shortly thereafter and I think we both felt something special on kind of new pretty quickly. You know this was leading somewhere and Haley Haley was moving to California a few weeks after that and that was her plan she'd already had a roommate in a room setup. Oh was yeah. Let me tell. The story forgot. That was when we were actually supposed to move was the first thing that we kids all right so yeah. They're not told her speak good. Kiss my line at the time the time was you should pray about it. So that's what I tell her house like I don't I don't think you should move to California. I think you should pray about it and I was kind of hidden but at the same time I think she took me serious and actually thought about may not have really haven't thought about this so kind of went home and prayed about asking for a son and she was signing her Lease on her apartment at work and her boss came to or behind her and told her that he would double her salary. She was staying Nashville Society. I and they really selling at times pretty pretty obvious like that. You know I think it's kind of got US humor too so good deal So yeah right. She ended up quitting her job. But just using that as a sign to stay in Nashville and you know we hung Out of town and shortly thereafter we were. We were engaged and getting married six months later. It was it. was you know. I think we both doesn't pretty quickly. It wasn't love at first sight if you will But it was definitely love pretty quick and we do some special and so yeah the kind of the short version of those store and Yeah that's pretty cool. I mean obviously it was something special because Y'all just had one kiss like you're saying of us have been real good kiss. You started dating yet. It's fresh fresh. Yeah it was fresh but like I said we were. We were so busy that in because she had just quit her jobs in between jobs and selfishly like hey we want to just come on the road with me and when I'm home can we just hang out all the time like we were together pretty much every day after that so you you had artists your nose going on. We had just gotten a bus. We were sort of past the really really rough and stage like the double washy probably. Wouldn't you know. Join me on the road but we were definitely shared about for for a while. That's fine we also had twelve dude on the bus so so you get to know each other quickly you know. least I'd say six or eight months later we moved into the same house together other and Just to save money to be honest and then realize how amazing that was and Yeah ask her to marry me pretty soon thereafter after and talked about raising kids that are farm and how amazing that was going to be and then She told me about after we got married. She didn't want to beat the form so but it was all it was all for the better anyways now that we live in town it's really convenient. And we have the farmer getaway to and that's started in the country together when you learned that men do not take hints. You have to communicate clearly to them because I told Tyler when I was ready when I wanted to move to town that I'd I had been hinting for the last year and a half that work out with the farm and he was like well. This is the first time I'm here. Communicate Hints So. That's true at that point. That was my turning point and actually really communicating. What my needs are to him? That literally was like a moment for ullmark time Like I have to speak up and say directly what I feel. Yes because I just thought people under could read my mind. They should you you just say syntax feeling but that was not the case. I mean. Obviously no one can read minds so I've worked on expressing my needs and was that. Ah something does that come natural for you express your needs or did you feel you had to like work on that. It's still something I have to work on be conscious about. I'M A to any Graham your ear helper. Yes so you probably put your needs lasts and you see how you can help everyone else. I probably specially the ones you love the most right. What are you on your almost three? That's an achiever your seven. which is the enthusiast four? which is the romantic? Okay so I think that's great. We all of the grant. We actually tried to play at any again. Any grand game failed Raleigh Guardian. Don't get that off for the birds instagram. So let's talk about that like how do your personalities Mesh because we'll talk about ours too because obviously I know ours a lot but we'll share that but how does an achiever and helper go together. Socially with very busy lives in kids how do you make that work in communicate That's a good question for me. I've just been really focusing on. She helps me achieve overachiever. Tain I don't know actually GonNa go with that one You know I think the Graham is interesting because you know. I don't think it's the end all be all I think it's a cool Help understand each other's personalities but I would say overall we're all we're just a really attain in this kind of been are are saying since we got married if I were a team and we're But but it does help me understand. I understand you know qualities about Haley that that helped me communicate better with her and in vice versa But overall you know I think I think we're just a team a this is a terrible answer but maybe next question so okay because I do think especially now that your marriage when you've been married for a while have kids. How do you feel like how do you feel like our team eighteen ninety year organizer and Scheduler your which I love the sheet and Michael's like Sydney Amy Day sheet of what I need to do for sunny today? Almost well okay type of environment. I mean team wise. We just being a good team and we work well together and we move while together new you let me be me and your flexible schedule. And you're not. You're not sentimental about things you know. It's like you know a birthday like you celebrate it early anniversary. Everyday's anniversary Valentine's Day is every day. Yeah Yeah like we can just laid back and cool like that. Which makes it easier on me? But that's just years of being with you and understanding your love. Language is words of affirmation nations. So and I sometimes for my birthday or Christmas. I'm like you don't have to give anything but please write me a three page letter. Like thank about it and take some time. I I want you to write out specific things that you love me. Not just your great. I need long long list awfully hard. That's all but like a quick breezy card. I want like a thoughtful car where you have like specifically listed things that you love about me and noticed together and with the plan to write a song and instead would just right. We'll spend three hours just right out. solid work to very specific song. That is a really directed. It's directed Missouri's thousand percent. Then Dan plan that okay. It's my it's her birthday. I'm you go get the card right the card. I don't want the car to have been planted viruses. I want it to be well thought out and I do think that is the different one. I duNno I don't know some men may be super sentimental abide I when we first got married started dating. I would drive to where you were in. Put a card in your windshield. All these thoughts and you didn't even care like you didn't even thought that you could have cared less sweet and I was like well you read it. Well it's really nice and I'm like but that would have been talk about me. I like quality time. Yes over any of that. Yes all about quality time and I don't give a gift like you don't have to give me gifts or anything but I'm if you want to you you want if you want to if you're going to buy it yourself because you're gonNa want like things little things for me. It's like you know get picked up from the airport. Report hate US works. No okay so tyler. You said yesterday about Haley. What inspired it was a song it's called invisible. Is this what you're dancing to live. A wake was cutest thing ever knows so cute. She made Monday Eh. But it's just the concept of sometimes like I'll be in the spotlight a lot of times people forget that how viable and you know for me. I just WanNa make sure I remind Haley on a regular basis like you're the real star in the situation like all. I do have been interesting songs or go right song or whatever but to me. You're like the you're the rock star in our relationship and and sometimes it gets overlooked. Can I do feel like just a good reminder. You know in a main to to make sure she knows that. Because it's a it's important and everybody around me to know that too like I don't know just a big part of our dynamic and I would not be who I am anywhere close to who I am without highly around so it's They just kind of that the idea behind a little bit. What is the things you love? Most Not Haley. The first thing I was really attracted to highly about `bout was attracted to was her overall kind of own how she's so relaxed and calm into that and just handles herself with grace like like even where I might be all tied or like anxious or like you know not nervous really per se but I would just anytime I get wound up gladys look at highly and she's just so calm and just like nothing fazes her bothers her she self spoken and it's just good energy so instantly like when I first met her I was like man I love I love being around this girl and she's just she balances me out really well and I learned so much from her so that's the first thing and then as I got to know her a lot of things that what I love about her I love how she loves people so much she is a genuine help her she wants to help everybody with anything even if they don't want help try to work on that a little bit but she's just such a loving person such a big heart and wants to help people apple and So yeah that's the first two things that come to mind and now having kids together washing her mom is like I this fall more and more in love with her but initially. That was the hour things that I really was attracted to. It was just kind of her overall or on how she carries herself. I Haley. You are the most relaxed laid back person. I have ever met your so calm like the word I would. I used for us. Just calm peaceful just very peaceful inca. And where does that come from. Thank you Thank you guys tearing up. Uh We're hormonal. We can any time you feel like it all these emotions. I think deep down it stems from just this innate knowing that that God's got everything under control and I would say that probably the root of it just like okay. How do you know that only a big deal in the big scheme of things were did that faith in God so strong come from from such a young age? I don't know I just I don't know I think it's just in me. Holy Spirit whatever you WANNA call it. That's often I don't know it just just part of who I am and I guess I've just tried to kind of laugh things off if and trying not to make things such a big deal just interject a little bit. I will say some of your biggest influences or like from your mom and from Mama Kim as well very I mean I would say your parents have pretty coming into pretty relaxed. And they're pretty easy going and they kind of have a optimistic outlook on life life and then probably her second her second family I would say is lighting name. Kim Who's the same way. Look to her so much. She's just so graceful graceful and calm and uplifting and optimistic and just good people to be around and I think that's that has the have a pretty big influence on you and I think that's a choice to that you make just talking about this morning that you wake up some days and not everyone just feels super positive in happy every morning. It's definitely choice. You have to make to be intentional about it every day I will say you do that better than for me than I have a natural tendency to get super emotional about and I feel like fall down rabbit hole of feelings I could really just like just sink into my feelings in like live at the bottom of them but you always find signed with spin it like you'll always spin it and you'll find a positive way to use something and how how do you how do you do that. How did you how do you find that I think it's like Haley. Said like you wake up every day and you make a choice. You know even when things aren't going your way or you know you're frustrated did you. Just there's a reason why you're frustrated so you just kind of always try to get to the source of that first and then usually you overcome it and then you look at you know gratitude a huge thing then you just if you look around you got a roof over your head you've got got you now. We have a daughter so it's like there's a lot of good to focus on opposed to just a moment of frustration emotion. In my opinion. We've always been that way. You have always a positive person you know and I never it's like cliche. Is the one door closes. Another one opens type thing. It's really is true and those things happen. For a reason I think navigating through those things is the most important way with a positive attitude. And you'll get your best results so let me. Life's pretty good when you wake. That's GonNa talk about this because because I know this is like a new thing that you're talking about lately and I'm just going to help you openness out you recently posted about your brother. Yeah for sure he passed away. And that's been a really hard topic for you to talk about in the past and but you're wanting to talk about it now unlike view view it and you're viewing it in celebration which always have it's just sheer. I don't want to go into a room and be like hey check it out guys going to get to know me you know. It's just a part of my life. That is a painful but also happy Florida my life. Everybody suffered loss in some way. You know how you cope with that deal with that. I think that probably is why you know. I grew up there being positive because I was always positive in that situation. You know because you had to. Plus I was a kid so you know I just wanted to play in the mud. You know ride four wheelers. That was what we wanted to do. So we didn't look at it. You know I think what what hit me most this year but it is now I have a child and like looking at her and then finally feeling what my parents not feeling what they felt but I understand understanding standing a little bit more of like the Holy Shit like what did that do to them like we were kids you know so. I think that's the timing wise this. Here's why and it was twenty years ago. Yeah flew by the. That's where I felt the need to express it. You know people always go understand understand. It's like so you don't really never been there now that we have a child it it just kinda hit me a little harder like looking at her understand now more than you did it before we mean like you said now you understand. More of your parents are coming from what I can imagine what their perspective of what they fell on a big level trying to keep a family together on top of all that you know. It's it's it's just a what a load to carry you know and a lot of people stay together in the big Bro. Do something like that. And most couples and families just disperse this one or two ways. Yeah so I finally understand both ways. more forgetful Ferguson. Grace people grossed me. Yeah Jeez yeah yeah totally you know and everybody deals with things differently so not too bad. Try but you back off what you were saying. I think off. You've had the heart of gratitude. Forget the phrase but basically it's really impossible to be to be unhappy if you can maintain a state of gratitude. That's not saying like always being happier. All are never looking at life in a negative way but we he played gratitude gang which sounds really silly but a lot of times like Haley. Like what are you grateful for and so I'll have to. I'll have to think stuff which is not that hard but at times it's like why not. Why Ah feel this way and then almost instantly the gratitude brings you out of that and helps you get a perspective of like okay? I have a lot to be thankful for you know. There's there's no reason to to be pessimistic in this situation or whatever so we've tried to incorporate that even with like live and stuff like like we're grateful for just start trying to you know. Plant does Dawson her mind and help her understand the power our being grateful you know what I mean for for every little thing you know even live in general -absolutely so it's you know it helps us shift our perspective a little little bit from just being kind of like the second I start thinking about something in a negative light. That's when I'm like okay. That's my trigger. Any to think of what I'm grateful for. It's so easy to go down that rabbit hole. It's so easy even Thir- laws or something super heavy like there's always like silver lining you know you can kinda focus on or situations to be grateful for and We've talked a little bit about that but yet just they live in general. I think there's a lot of power in the gratitude you know snapshot of Your Phone and you know it's just it works out how it's hard to do. Sometimes a lot of people don't do it you know if it's simple things that you know there's always going to be a bigger house nicer car or more money or success in somebody's doing this and better than you or whatever. It may be all shapes and sizes but he's focused on what you have like gratitude towards it. I think naturally you'll be happy and those things will grow to in total. I Dunno it's GonNa Channel great gratitude especially when you're having ship day something I've been really trying to the gratitude towards lately is now that we have sunny like I have the ability to let a lot of fear creep into my life like I could describing you like like because I can just go like these things Terrible things that you hear that happen to your Like People's children men. It's like how do you not live in that fear you know so how how do not live in that fear of God thing recounting in total you knowing that you know he's in control and it's out of our control but I think it was a Brunette Brown Book Doc. And she was saying you know every time you start having those thoughts because we all have those thoughts as parents like you think of that for riffing thing that could possibly happen and even if that didn't air did happen. Nothing's going to ever prepare you for that moment. So don't worry about it you know that's true And so that's where she says to shift to gratitude every time you're looking at your child and you have that that moment where you're like. Oh my gosh. What if this happened shifted to? I'm so grateful I've got this beautiful healthy child and my family and and it kind of snaps you out of it because nothing will ever prepare you for at that moment in what you were worried about is probably would never even happen right irrational fears that we have yeah natural though that that is so such a good perspective in my sister told me that to Catherine said she was like every day she says everyday has to be a good day and then also like why miss out on enjoying the moments that you have with people that you love the most with your children because you're worrying about something that most likely will never happen it's out of your control road racer then you miss out on your life with people that you love because you're stressing being out about something that will yeah you're not in the moment and that's ego and that's trying to control and not giving giving up to God so I guess you'd have to give everything up to God all the time but how do you stay in that place agreements leg be with your word word. Don't take anything personal. No Fear Al-Fayed. Oh I don't think anything personal domain assumptions also burnell. There's one more a support agreements. Or if you apply this southbound at the same time we're all human and it's obviously difficult not to land or at least at least half fears or you see your friend get through the tragedy and think man how the world would I get through that or whatever the case is but at the same time. I think it's being aware and having that mindset and no one man today I feel fearful let me just let me remind myself and as God to remind me hey like I am non control of my life. You know what I mean and right now he has made in this beautiful places beautiful kid did this beautiful marriage or whatever the case is and let's just living this today and not worry about tomorrow so I think there's a quite a few times in the Bob Bob where it mentions. Don't worry about tomorrow for it has enough whereas self or give us this day. Our daily bread like it talks about just worry about today. We can't change yesterday and we can't control tomorrow so just worry about today and then hopefully would that awareness. It can help us all because I thank as humans like especially in this culture like it's pretty natural to worry is pretty natural to try to control the situations and you know so. I think that's just a good reminder. Nothing were all there mentally so just yeah we just gotTa remind each other and be a support for each other and just know when we're having those fears. Here's to like you say give it up to God. I know that sounds so like Sunday school answer but but it's true. You know so absolutely Mike. Okay so I have a very softball question that I would like to see what your thoughts are about me. My Mom's a philosophy professor so we grew up having to like analyze all of our thoughts and lives. Why like I look at Sunny? You look at Luca in live and they're these fresh lives that have just come into the world. They're still so close to heaven you know like they're closer to heaven they are to Earth Right now is like I look at Sonnino. What are you know about the other side you know like? Why did you come here like I I think to myself? Like what is it that she is wanting to accomplish in her life or experience. Or like 'cause I personally believe that spirits will have spirits and souls were in this earth to experience something because then we're all going back to the other side back to heaven back to God so it's like why did she choose to come here like so. Why do you guys think we come to this earth like why are are we living like why do we not just all stay in pure positive heaven? Why is it that we come to this earth experience? Does that one the hard question. Let us that's a good question. I think that's a difficult question but at the same time I think it's simple and you know for what we believe in for our faith and what I've been learning lately is kind of going back to the one day time. Live a simple life and you know what like our ultimate goal while I think as humans were all built in made no matter what you believe were here for connection and I think we're here to connect with other humans and connect with God and the Bible says me again rivers the Bible. It says our number one calling is to love God and love people so I really think it's just as simple as bad bad thing. Is You know to kind of sum it up. I think it's just love people into love God and to connect obviously there's a lot of layers under that and there's a lot of confusion and a lot of you know the twenty the twentieth century. I think there's a lot of fog Innis around. What are you know what our purpose is in all this and that and I think we as humans also we put we put we wrap a purpose Aranda career or Rapa purpose around a relationship when we wrap a purpose purpose around a dynamic with a family or anything like that and say well my purpose is to be a good dad? My purpose is to be a husband and my purpose is to be a song writer artist and FRY. But I don't but I think ultimately all this all that's just the fun activities along the way or so you know. I think I still think that kind of ordained by God and I think that we're that is part of our purpose but the ultimate purpose for us being on earth is especially as believers is to love God into love. Love your neighbor into show them the love of God so I don't know I think that's at least least that's for me. That's that's where I kind of try to go back to try to keep that perspective on a daily basis especially in our busy crazy life where we think so. Many things are important. Wouldn't miss is important guy. Take this meeting like this song. Got Us on this artist. GotTa do this. GotTa play these shows and better. Donna's like man. Let's not forget the big picture here like ultimately when we pass away when people are talking about what are we want them talking about how we love people in my opinion and not how many songs we wrote how many shows we played or how much money we made. I think it's I think that can sometimes turn turn you know. Distract us from the ultimate purpose totally. Yeah having that human human experience is I agree with him. All that other stuff is just you just do and stuff you know but be nice to people love one another and give to one another you know like I said it's like it all just kind of feeds itself and I get. I get reminded of that often often win. Like I'll just take time to go have coffee with someone or maybe like help somebody out offer like it's just like this today and I'll actually go do that and I feel so fulfilled and so whole and so like wow like. That was the best done today. And maybe it didn't maybe it didn't pay me or maybe it didn't you know maybe I don't have anything to physically show for it but may Mahar was full and I can tell that's what my purpose for that day was and so I think just it just keeping that perspective is important and I've just been reminded that often late lately just through experiences and things I've had it's just like okay like here not to strike this week. Come probably constant strike right totally. Hey Caroline Hobby here if you know me how important sleep is to me.

Why is it such a part of this human existence? Why do we have to fail? Why do we have to feel pain? Why is that essential for us as humans inevitable that like? Why is it inevitable? Well it didn't have to be but that's the way this whole life has been designed and of course the higher power although the hard question when I did you go through hard things. It helps me have empathy for other people that are going through hard things and I find myself when I do need to be there for someone else. I refer back to the time when I had a really difficult time and so empathy empathy But I don't know why you have to go through bottle you know. It'd be Nice if God put us in a perfect world and there was no pain and there was no sadness and there was no but then again we'd be living in a very robotic world. Wherever will what did you learn? I mean when you when you go through pain you go through hard times. You're learning something and it's always a faith building for me. It's it's a lot about fake building. You know what I mean and actually having to Lean on God and trust him and no man we as humans can't even wrap Yep our head around what God's doing like we can't even begin to fathom like his ultimate purpose and plan and I think I think it just creates a demand for Jesus to be honest you know the hard times in life and and the way that he can give us peace when there's no reason to be peaceful or you know what I'm saying or give us a comfort in Tom's of you know Thompson need times of pain and you you know for me. I've experienced that a few times in life where it's just like okay God like I know you're here I know you're with me. I can feel I can feel you comforting me giving me peace and in letters that feel I it. Just it's hard to explain but it does feel like okay. I should be so upset right now and I am sad but like like when I lost my dad I feel like it was a moment where I kinda prayed right after our God like I need you right now like hardcore and I'm either going to go this way. I'm going to go that way and I really want to choose you and I really WanNa go this direction. So help me out and I pray that prayer almost instantly in I truly just feel like almost out. How just almost smile about it like and it lasted for a while and it was still a journey for sure especially like months after that you know of just the healing process process and the grief and all that but I could just feel God with me and I think to go back and kind of talk about what Michael was saying earlier about being a parent now I feel like you can kind of get the perspective of our relationship with God because it says that everybody on Earth is a child a son John Asunder daughter of God and to be able to take that perspective now of man. He'll do anything for me like he's gotten he wants to take care of me. He wants to protect me when when we fall and hurt our knees or whatever the case may be like. He's going to be there to help us feel better. He's going to be there to to help us. He'll niece but if you didn't follow hurt your knees you'd have no need for your dad so I feel like there's a big there's an underlying kind of I think God uses that to drop into him. You know what I'm saying saying. It also gives us more faith in it. Encourages us to have to rely on him. 'cause sometimes I've been there a few times in life where you hit the bottom and you're like I got nowhere where else to go but but a you know like I'm just GonNa Trust God here and see what happens. I hear I hear his. I hear he's a good father. Here is going to take care of us and all this stuff somewhere contested out in any does so the bottom is actually kind of a blessing. Sometimes yeah do you know. I think it's a it's an eye opening experience for anybody and you realize man. I'm not in control. I need help which we all do. You know what I mean and I'm not invincible. And not as strong. I think I am and just all those things. It's very humbling. So whether it's you know I think that many different definitions it hit the bottom but you know you lose your best friend or your dad or your brother or anybody. That's a that feels pretty close to the bottom I happen I get over this. You know what I mean so anyways yeah I think again. I think it's just part of God's purpose and planned to draw closer to him. I totally agree with that. MHM think about the Father Perspective like man. That's why I've been listening to some messages lightly in this even like the simplest things like that reminds me okay like like as a parent. Now we know like we would never we will never let our kids go out in the cold without clothes on on. Or if they're if they're doing something we would do anything for kids anything and I feel like to have that perspective effective realize man. That's what God will do for us and probably even more you know what I mean like. He did do that for us. So it's like okay. Let me just try to wrap my head around this level the love that sometimes we forget about you know because it's not you know. It's not a tangible tangible or audible thing right in front of us you know what I mean like. Obviously we're there to wake her kids up every morning and in Gaza not always stand in our living room shake and has to wake up the same time. In retrospect I feel like he kind of is you know so if he can have that mentality and know that that's the relationship that is designed in between us as humans and him as God. I feel like it just helps you stay in that mindset totally connect the dots enough rambling from learn so so okay. I WanNa talk a little bit about marriage and Dan. Parenthood not interested to hear your perspective two weeks what has been the most eye opening. Dang that you have learned about your all start with marriage I forget into motherhood and fatherhood what has been the thing that has changed the most in your marriage in our marriage since having a kid for the better and not worse because none of its worst but like things that you've realised. Oh Gosh I I need to work on this and I didn't have to work on it before a child but then also what has been. The most incredible thing has happened since having a child child within your marriage you know since having kids you lose a little bit of that freedom but we get closer together at the same time and can you really have to work together and you know we've hit points where we get to that that low point of like. Oh my Gosh I'm struggling. And what do I need right now like I need you here. I don't know have you found that you had been being 'cause you said like that was something you learned earlier marriages. You had to learn how to voice what your needs were have. You've I've found that you needed to do that now. Being among totally I think just being intentional about what my needs are and what I need because I can't expect act tyler to know what to do and vice versa. And I think being a mom. You just have extra little intuitions that maybe a dad ad doesn't naturally have and that they want to help you know they're they're they're wanting to help they just don't know how and so I mean you do but it's different. It's it's a mother instinct for a reasonably you know knowing what they're needing when they're eating and to the point where boobs tingle when the milk comes in and we're like we need the feed the baby. So just you know being intentional with our time together and our needs and communicating communicating is huge for us. And when I stopped communicating and I can tell you can what happens. Oh my Gosh I get emotional. And what's going on. Why am upset upset? I'm like Oh because I haven't communicated I'm feeling and at least you have to realize that right so you know that when you start feeling can you catch yourself. You're like oh I need. So then how do you communicate do like write down your thoughts jaw like a family meeting or do you like how does it. How do you take the time to get your needs out? Wherever we can't let mean wherever we can make time for it in our crazy schedule we just say? Hey we gotta talk How do we make time for that? You've talked to you whenever you feel like I feel like I in the fall asleep usually anywhere else this around bedtime stories stories or you're catching him like sleeping in the brand new places translate pretty good just about anywhere if I'm frustrated about something and he's passing using out and Mike others no way. He's sleeping now. Gosh I will say like I think with kids it just is it. Requires you to be more intentional. Because there's so many more things are juggling so you know literally will end another sounds a little bit surface level but like for us. Our calendars early like a really useful tool for us to be intentional. So like if if we stay on our calendar we'll check our calendars and if we don't have a date night on the books you you know within a week or so of that will put it on there and we're pretty good about us something on the calendar or schedule we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA do it. It's it's almost like our check list. You know and even if we have something that comes up that that we would like to do but haven't talked about yet we have a little system in place where it's like. We'll put it on the counter so we both see it and we'll put a question mark because that means we gotta talk about it before we remove the question mark making chaser so that way she. I'll do something and say Titan game on Sunday and she we're not going to the titans games like well. Did you say the question mark because we hadn't talked about yet so let's discuss it. That was just a complete has never really happened but a motocross race or something but anyway so it's just little you know being intentional about setting little things in place that worked for for each relationship I think is is Kim. I think having kids really makes it extra important because as you guys know like you can you can just go weeks and weeks and just be so busy and fill like mcman. Hadn't had one second to sit down with you and have any time. We hadn't made the time you know what I mean. Let's put it on the calendar. Let's go on a date night. Let's go on a picnic even with with the kids but you know just whatever the need is it helps you it helps you voiced that and implement and make it happen. You know I've been trying to make time for myself talking with my therapist. And she's like you've got to get out of the House for thirty minutes a day and just go do something for you and so just go to starbucks and I start writing a journal and that's like my alone time and so I can feel full when I come back to the house. I feel like I got my time. I got filled up and I can be my best. Try Be my best for the family. And I'm just touch on this and then I'll quit talking so much but I will say balance is key like in our life in every week. I look at a week and I say all right to have a balanced week. Anita have meantime. I need to have us time. I need to have whole family time. I need to have workdays songwriting days need to you know. There's a lot of things but I gotTa make sure I need to have my workout like all the things that make Ma Week. Holy God like one on one time a God and he you know what I mean so interesting making sure you have it all power. You know what I'm saying. And if each piece is twenty percent ish yeah sure so I mean I I can probably put it all in five or six categories the. Yeah I gotTa have all that to be a full week to be whole and not feel out of balance so it kind of go look at the counter and said we got her date. Nice got a Wednesday morning. Jesus while Gumma Tuesday Thursday workouts in Milwaukee Gemmell Monday or Friday workouts. My boys got in two days of songwriting. Eleven o'clock I got a couple of meetings. You know what I'm saying like just to make sure you're getting the and it's also I mean but then at the same time now I wanNa have I wanna live a life creates freedom so we're not completely living about escape so sometimes will literally put in the calendar a free day whereas like don't book anything I think we're going to see where the wind blows day. It might blow me up to the farm derived dirt bikes. I Dunno might blow us out. Percy Warner Park. Going to hide like or we might just it might rain anyway. My stay in the House all day. So I think there's a beauty in that too and you create freedom and create spot new any but schedule it. Then you make sure that your balance balance is regional bells. Yes that's important. Yeah I love that. How do you think our marriage has changed for the better? Or what have we struggled with the better. I mean we're fresh into it. You know so we're still it's just not we'll see if coming up for ear let's popped up that has been a str- waste Jackson. That's why do you feel like has been something that you've had to wrap your head around good and hard as a new new parent as a parent on up. The hardest thing is selfishness. 'cause like you know we've been together a long time the life that we live and thankfully it it it definitely caters to you. Being Selfish Can just all about you. You don't so I think that's been an adjustment for me with her is finding finding that balance of like okay. I mean it kind of comes naturally because you wanna be with them and you want you know it's a thing but I mean watching you become a mother has been inspiring because you just make it look easy you know. Thank you in. That's cool. I'm really just there to help you know you've cooked every single meal Nice pitcher role. He's like become the show hobby. The House like you've really done great little concern the thing I'm like you're putting it into food. Yeah but that's the thing if me cooking in you know doing all that helps you while you're feeding every three or four hours and you take the night shifts. I'll take the mornings you know it's like we have a balance of like an ecosystem that we've just gotten to the agreement worse so we're we're both happy so you know you gotta you were able to get out of the the house today for a few hours Faucet there this morning and you know took care of her then and you're GonNa you know you're let me out of the the house or something I gotTa do tonight when we go to the bar together. This is like we to do everything together. Like you and I would always go everywhere together and now we don't because we're still I think we're we're still adjusting. That's a change for me though is like I used to go anywhere anywhere all the time do everything constantly and now it's like really like I have to find a babysitter or higher the night nurse to come which is a blessing that we have these the people at our lives. But it's like you have to really prepare to leave that's so true to your calendar and scheduling. It's just you just gotTa think out your weeks or for months a little bit you know ahead of time and back in the day there's beauty about being newly married or just freedom all the time same same ain't got to worry about this week like do we WanNa do that day. And it's it's a lot of fun but when the kids come along it just requires that if you wanNA have healthy anymore. It's got to be on a schedule. Some people subscribe to that some people do. But it's just like well. That's I have to make. That added a priority now for a little bit of time. You know it's not forever and we did the thing. We were married for five years before we decided to have a kid together. Thirteen years. Yeah but when we got it forever he was twenty one. Ask Twenty Four. I'm older too much fine. Everyone aw to the point where we're GONNA do time. It's time and I think that's important for people that when they get married. I mean you do what you want to do. But I think it's important to have that time in the beginning to yourself you know because like you do with someone things like either buying a house together and your careers at your combining all these things. There's an adjustment period all that because you know our whole lives have been used to being us your me. We learnt how to weather all sorts of like storms together before we had kids. So it's like now even if things really intense or hard or we're gonNA season like right now a very intense season with a new one. But it's like I are. We already know every single single little nook and cranny personality and how interact together. So it's like almost I don't worry about surviving hard things as you because we've already survived so many things together. I will say something that popped up for me. I'll speak struggle. That happened for me with the beginning was I felt like you could continue living your your life as normal exactly as as a the mom in like obviously breastfeeding every three hours in like someone has to be there with the baby. All the time I I felt like I will never leave this house again. Like I will never be able to get out of this house but you can just leave you know so. That was something I had to like. Learn how to help. Did you know that it's not. It's not doing it on purpose. But what are you going to do. Sit there with us the whole all day while we breastfeed. Yes I still tyler. I'm like I just need you to be here. You're with me which I don't do very well talk about ten minutes all you get and then I gotta move but it took me so long to realize that frustration like oh my gosh. He gets to continue his life he he gets to go to his workouts in the morning. I I'm still recovering. I can't work out yet. I'm breastfeeding my body. Is Not what it was. My pants. Don't fit nothing fit and so you tell us emotional stuff and and we were on tour in the middle of tour. That's true so you're just jump right back into being on the road. Yeah and I'm like. Oh I miss being on the road. I want to go on the tour and and you're like how do I get back to that but it's like how do you write it. It does feel like oh my gosh one of my ever GonNa get it out but I mean thank God for our texts that we have going on with the girls and I'll say that's crucial to have after guys the same way about having guy friends who are new to urge that yeah. A support group of females going through the same things has been so important for me This guy but we do the same thing. I mean I've been really went out to your farm is like I just needed. I needed this. You know we're not going to go out to farm all day from morning till night. 'cause we can't I got against that. I like Ford six weeks like a shift change. Everybody's going through. I mean we're going to changes to you. And what are you the change. What what made you? Well it's like this. Is it like that. You're just you you have to have. Everybody has to have a grace period of adjustment to like big live and things things like marriage kids huge career. Things like it. You gotta just nobody just gets it just like that. I don't think One thing that I that. NFL In this kind of like just to change perspectives a little bit like for us as dudes you have your wife. It's like for the most part you know. I live for Hayley and she lived from me and it was like it was all about us like you said well as soon as that baby comes. Mom is all about baby and all of a sudden husband kind of gets pushed aside which is okay and that's expected but it definitely take some adjustment. You know what I'm saying in this kind of art you gotTa have grace on that just like you gotTa have grace on us to be floor. That is true. I mean very much so you know it kind of at least it felt that way where it's like. Yeah like if I'm on tour with me and it's amazing I get to have my wife with me all the time and you know we love that but as soon as baby comes it's like all right baby number one now and so you kinda get an even to the point of like you know Halo would cook meals and highly. Do things will all of a sudden. It's like that just takes a backseat. You know what I mean the priority shift and change and for decades AIDS and we don't have enough time or energy to do. We don't expect acid. I'm like you know props to all women who had a baby because it's just Z's but at the same time like hobbies said there's an adjustment for you guys and for us you know. Have you felt that like that. I have kind I have not well. We're not even sleeping in the same bed right now because I sleep sonny's room on a on a mattress on the floor. Because I know what positively by those. TV's as long as it is true. Felt bad that we aren't as like intertwined as we have been in the past ten years of our marriage that's interested in talking about 'cause us were that the other day. I don't feel anything towards it because to me. That's what it is and it's not GonNa last rush you're able to separate that. Yeah it doesn't sound like I'm like what's going on with our marriage now. It just seems like since the baby series over uh-huh perfect man. You're raising a kid feeding it every four hours waking up and like good on you for sleeping in the room on a little Palette. You know in doing that from midnight six. Am You know. But I think he's that motherly for that. It might be because I need to have more faith or whatever but I have. It's like a I have. It's fear that makes me WANNA do that. I'm so worried about her all the time. Kasese my number one. You know things I've read that's very common with a woman in the first child. You know but then you look at like some friends of ours or like my sister-in-law in Los he's got five and five kids. I remember Christmas time there. She was born in April. She's just like four weeks old and like there's kids running around and I was just like where's the new baby baby and she just laid on the floor and the Dan you know like she's not GonNa roll with. It's just think they get all changes. I'm sure it's different for you guys now with a second one in the first one and like you said it's just a chapter. It's just a phase. You're you're GONNA get your life but you're gonNA get your marriage. The dynamic that it was a lot more he'll get my brain back the brains ever coming membrane is in a rare win gone. Yeah I forget what I'm saying. I left my baby. We're as I yesterday. I was going to get my lashes. Duncan trying to like keep some and I left my go the baby the and I forgot my phone and I was like oh no panicking. I was like what if he can't hint like something happens. Like you have breakdown in need. It'd be but then I'm like he's her Dad GonNa be fine. You're only capable than doe that time with no phone. I know but it is it session learning curve. This is Michael Seven. He's always like it's all good pretty good. I think say to me I think are doing amazing and I think it's amazing to have friends in the same chapter. That's why it's so funny like hang out with like new parents who were like trying to bounce at all you know yeah and I will say like along. The same lines is like I think there's a lot to be said about asking for help. And not being ashamed of that and I don't mean necessarily having ninety per se I think if you can if you have the financial ability ability to get an anti. That's incredible but if you don't I still think you gotta use your resources in your friends and your family around you to give you those days where it's like. Hey guys like like for me and Hailey S I go. We're taking two days and we're going on a trip like the babies are going to be fine. We'll leave him with somebody. Here's the milk. Here's the deal. Well here's how we put them to bed like and just trust is gonNA work because trusting. Yeah Trust is hard but I think that's another thing about having kids he just. Yeah Yeah I mean you don't WanNa you don't WanNa go and get a babysitter dot com and just let your baby stays anybody but I think he but even if we were talking about this other day like there's so many of our friends that we love and older friends of ours that maybe their kids are grown or whatever. I'd love to come over and watch the baby for a day or I'd love to accept their health exactly. I really think that's you know I think that's important as parents as hard as it may be. Just just lean in on that a little bit with your with your friends and with your family Our family doesn't live in towns. That makes it a little harder but I can. I can name five people right now that would love to come over and or we could literally job live and look off at their house for two or three days. I think it'd be cool with it and So I think that's that's also something to take into consideration as a new parent is not saying that. It's not hard because I do think leaving your kid. This is special time and and I think as a mom me personally I feel I. Don't you know it's the mom guilt that everyone talks about in it's a real thing and have you struggled with that. Yeah especially because we do have a nanny and you know. I'll be downstairs in my office office and I hear them having fun upstairs. Oh I should be up there or I hear them crying and I'm like oh I should go do that. I mean I have to kind of make myself yourself be like no Haley. This is what I need to be doing so that later I can be present with them. But there's still struggle definite guilt in that. I'm just like Oh my gosh I should be. There should be making those members of them. I should go take them to the park which we do. But you know and I can't be there for them all the time because is that I can't be my bestself but it's that constant struggle when I'm not with them I want to be with them and then when I'm with them to find time for oh you. Yeah so just that balance again just something. We're learning in. It's it is a real thing to learn. It's it's very it's easy to like. Go hard one or the other way around. Michael Working Moms to like a ton of friends who had had newborns gone back to work and having to have their name their baby full-time care. You know it's like but they need to work and so it's just it's just you have to accept except so much of the parent and I. We talked briefly about this on previous podcast with my roommates but like when we ended up choosing having a C. section like that. That was a really hard thing for me to my head around the beginning because I felt guilty. I'm so hormonal. It's made me cry that like I wasn't having natural labor. The bailing in a way. I can cry the drive that it actually is a real topic it hits a personality. It's like my I call my sister. She was like the faster faster. You can SAR Michigan. The faster you can accept that parent is not perfect in like. You GotTa make a decision in standby in by it and I know that like they're all fine decisions. You know everything is fine like there's not a wrong there's not a right and just make your choice feel good about it and then don't go back and like your question it and that is such a struggle for me to question myself in my previous life before child. I just question everything a millionaire. I could analyze everything the thing I think I'd choose the wrong thing. Worry so much that like I should have done this or should on that or like. Oh my gosh this person's upset with me. 'CAUSE I did this but like I know. Oh my heart is good. I know I'm choosing the best I can. And now as a parent you have to stand by that question it good for you for like saying those things because a a lotta times we have such negative self talk and for you to be saying I know I'm a good mom you know I can do. This is so huge. And that's because self-talk huge. I've recently tapped into self talk like I didn't even know until like this year. Michael Chandler giannattasio enemy fighter. He's sort of our good friends. He always talks about self talk and I didn't even know how bad myself talk was until I started checking in on the hardest on ourselves in anybody. Yes it would just be foot Ruutel to myself. I am saying whatever you follow it with. don't follow it negatively check yourself. Yeah the Mongol thing we're too I think from our culture and our society I think also changes like even with like breastfeeding verse pumping a nanny verse. Not having any all are not working right. It's like man like like you just said just just do your best. No that your mom. And and don't don't compare your situations or listen to a cultures telling you because honestly ten years cultures going to say the opposite anyways. It's true like it may be on your back before. There's so many things that you could be guilty from refill that you know. Even I'm obviously not a mom so I don't don't really know but I I will just say just from observing from announced such perspective is like it's real and it's just it's Kinda sad that our culture puts so much pressure on mom mom and so many expectations. And if you don't do this then you're a bad mom well like you said there's not a writer of all how many months you should breastfeed or there's not a right or wrong on a lot of times. We should do it in public or not right. In the pet peeve Allah what is natural so anyways all MOMS to. Do you have confidence in that. It's different for everybody. You know so then there is no wrong wrong. A right wrote as hard. That's really hard to do that. But I've been trying to lately my motto is. It's just been kind of to celebrate the little victories. Even if it's got out of bed and I brush my teeth and I got my makeup on before the kids got up today's miracle I did it out the door on time and the kids are dressed in those little things. I'm like yes we did it. uh-huh so it's the little victories that are actually the big victories. I've been trying to really just encourage those instead of at the end of the day being like. What did I get done today? Take in kind of being down to myself. It's like no. We did a lot because sometimes at the end of the day. I really can't tell you one thing I did besides just keep signing alive in theater and like I. I don't really have the time and wearing sweatpants. I last night to sleep in like nice of brush my hair or my teeth and I'm like well those exhausted busy all day but you have to be alive. That's a huge job. Yeah and and so we don't give ourselves enough credit for those things. Why is he really hit a lot of times? Ed Thank you know. I like draft every podcast up with. Leave your light so just leave some inspiration of obviously this whole thing's expiring. We're talking about inspiring things but like how do you want inspire people like what's the wisdom WanNa drop on people just to spread transom height. Here's mine just that. Hit me right when you said that because it's kind of along the topic of what we're saying but I think whether you're parent whether you're not whether you're married whether you're not you know wherever phase alive I think there's I don't think we give ourselves enough. Grace I really think like. That's that's important supportive. 'cause like you said the self talk and all that stuff like you can be so hard on yourself so I think it's just giving yourself grace a main if Jesus Jesus can be can give us so much great walking give it to ourselves. You know what I mean. Give us cut ourselves some slack. Every now and then and don't be so hard on himself so there's my little light negative for either I guess mine would be Just to I guess we said this before. But just remember that God's in control and to just take weight off of your shoulders so true and and just live your life and enjoy in not be fearful. Because he's he's got us. That's so hard not to do so true so hard. It's yeah you just have to constantly remind yourself. Try that every day. And it's aiming that I guess mine will be covered. I said before this is my personal. Personal struggle is owning my decisions like trusting myself and trusting my instincts especially. Now's a new mom like a half half trust my instincts so our like trust your intuition. Trust your instincts and know that if your hearts in the right place and you're doing your best then in don't go back and over analyze it and beat yourself up just know that like you did the very best you can. And he felt like you were led to do and then you have to let ah go. And he's now have to do is going to last. You got this day I tyler grace thing. I think that's really important in both one thing. I always try to do every day's essay. I'm thankful for things that I don't have anything for for things that I do. And you speak that loud you speak that all in and and then find gratitude at least once a day take a deep breath and gratitude and something in. It'll change you day but yet I'm always been a believer that you know your journeys not someone else's your you know what I mean your own your own path plan so something doesn't happen for you. Don't mourn over it gets move onto the next thing but just be thankful for everything he puts in your life and got takes out of your life because that's the way supposed to be totally awesome. Good will I just want to say before we get finished here. We look up to you guys so much. You guys are incredible parents and incredible friends and incredible people.

Kailey Dickerson (Wife of Russell Dickerson)

"And. Sees the Queen of. Zone. No win. No one can win. Is this absurd of get real podcast? I have Kaley Dickerson. Joining me. She is such an incredible inspiring soul to talk to every time. I sit down and talk with her just blown away by her faith by her humor her trust in. God. She in Russell Dickerson. Her husband who is rising star. He just had a second number one single country radio. He makes it grant entrance in the beginning of the podcast is so funny. But Kalian Russell's faith is so strong. They have been believing in this dream of country music for so many years we walk through their entire journey and something so cool is Kaley has been right there by Russell side, the whole time, and she has been the videography in the producer of all of Russell's music videos, so far she said to number one music videos on CMT blue Giacoma was her latest one, and yours they filmed yours and Russell had nothing going on. There was no money to make a music video. And they went out and shot it themselves. Kaley directed it. So their story is so incredible. And they're just have the most optimistic attitude about life. It's so uplifting to be around them. So get excited. Here's scaly Dickerson. Okay. I'm here at Keighley Dickerson's how Hello wife of Russell Dickerson. Hey, who's very alarium dynamic country singer. Yes, he is. Oh here. Gee, didn't know he was going to be here. Got an elevator in your house. Love you any by. You know? Yeah, we're where do you like to ride that elevator down to the laundry? Jonah the wine cellar library. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. That very necessary for sure. Yeah. Okay. So it sounds like you guys have no fun in your marriage at zero zero no laughs no mill labs. What is it typical daylight here at the Dickerson house? It is. It's an adventure. He is truly like wakes up thinking it's the best day every single day where does that mentality? Come from. I have no idea like eight is he is unicorns rainbows like this morning. He goes like first thing I woke up today was it's knowing like he's like buddy the L. I'm like reminds me of L real. Like, he's never seen snow in his life. Like, it's so cute. It's a few. So that has you have the same infectious personality. Also though like, you're always glass half full optimistic. Yeah. I'm happy kid. I mean, so it's usually are like sitting on a rainbow. Toot not skittles. It is bigger the little kid on lake DreamWorks like going fishing from the moon. I'm like kinda feels like that. So okay since you guys have such an optimistic personality. How do you guys deal with this music industry because not every day is an optimistic day? So how do you navigate this wild industry? And you guys have something y'all have something really special because you are always by Russell side. Yeah. Y'all are true partnership in your on the road with him constantly, which a lot of women would have hard time doing. Yeah. I love it. Okay. So you're made for it. I love it. Yeah. I five older brothers. So only girl Ilna girl, and we traveled so hard core for soccer for them that I lived in a van with a bunch of boys this is normal. Now, I live in a bigger van with a bunch of ways. I actually live. I really do love it. Yeah. It's yeah. It's not an industry that's always rainbows and unicorns. But I feel like we've known for so long and had to fight for everything we knew he was supposed to do that. Even the things that we were like praying for so hard we want this. We want that. And even when they didn't happen. It was like, okay, they're not supposed to happen. So it's just the land is like everything works together for the good. Always you know. So we actually laughed about that the other day like he really wanted to think on the verge for radio, and we wrote praying for it for years. You know, we're like, oh, we'll get that, you know, verges where all the radio stations decide to play your songs like you're single. So we were like definitely we're definitely. And you have to be like, I artist first thing, and he didn't get it. And we were so bombed in honestly looking back. I'm really worth ankle. Like now, we're like, oh actually kinda glad that. We built those relationships the hard way. And like did it the long way in now the second time around it was it was better. And it was I don't know. We just we thought it just wasn't our story and for some people like skyrockets them into the stratosphere. And it's great. It's everyone's story is so different. But we're grateful for Hauer has is turning up. God is a big part of your journey. You always talk about God. I know that this is this is like the centerpiece of y'alls life career marriage. Where does that come from? We both grew up in the church. Okay. So his dad is a worship pastor in Nashville would Mont Baptist where we got married really greenhouse some preachers kids, turn the other way and go crazy. Both had our we definitely had our I don't I know. I had I don't think I believe in God anymore at that phase in high school. Yeah. And he never did. He is just like the most faith like they say like faith is a gift he has the gift of faith. Just. Blind total faith. I always even thinking about Adele now for oh, yeah, he really really is not in the jumpsuit, but he's like world's best coffee. Congratulations. Yeah. So I grew up passer sister. So because my brother is basically old enough to be my dad. Okay. 'cause yeah, that's what you said your oldest brother is twenty or twenty years older. So he was my youth. Pastor he like was really foundational in my beliefs, and my parents are Christians. But he was more hands on went to seminary. I was learning all these things with him that I thought were so interesting and then had a moment. Whereas like, I don't think this is real. And then I was like, oh, no, this is definitely real. Okay. So what was that moment? Why'd you not think Israel in than what made back. I went to Belmont. So in my high school in Wisconsin there were like there were cushions. But it was no one was like I'm going to make sacrifices for this. And I kind of was I didn't go to all the parties. And I didn't do things I thought like a good Christian to do, you know? And I moved to Nashville, and I was like there are going to be other Christians. I'm not gonna be alone. And I got here and that didn't happen. And I was like. Oh, I think this is just something. My family does. Okay. No. I was like, maybe this isn't real, okay? And then I kind of at and do anything wild and crazy to figure it out. But all of a sudden, I felt different one day. Remember, and I was like if I feel different than means or something to feel so Godhra that was it that was it was just that then on. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. Like it felt like the joy in life was gone. Okay. An hour is like if I if if there's something to feel like that, then God's real I dunno. It's just that's yeah. And we found each other way after that like I had come full circle. I was like doing missions photography, and he was leading worship at a bunch of churches. And and you are not interested in dating recision new like that was not on the agenda. No, definitely not. So would I always found that like I would say that. If I look at my track record, all they were all musicians like what is wrong with me. I was drawn to it. I guess I don't know. I've done stocking on you. And obviously you but so you had like maybe not the best relationship before Russell. Oh, yeah. So you got a little burned the you weren't necessarily open especially to the musicians to relationship. How did you you talked about trust lot? Like Russell told you have some. But you're like, okay, you're human. And then finally like you heard that God. Yeah. Where did that all come from? And you're so good hearing signs from God. Like hearing hearing God speak to you. He comes to you and dreams, he comes you and signs. I wanna talk to you about that think credit. This like how did that come? Or you knew you had to trust in this a leap, you're gonna take. I I would always pray that if it wasn't gods best whoever I was dating after that guy after I got burned. I was like if this isn't your best for me, God just take him. Okay. And every single time he did like within like two weeks. That's what I love about your faith is like you ask and it gets answered. Well, he's like that though. My obviously in my experience, but you trust so will trust. So fully that the is coming. Well, it came from a hard decisions like breaking up with that guy. Are honestly was like God. If if he's not going to be faithful like I had a fear of that. And with him specifically in if that's going to be the trajectory of my life, and I'm gonna have kids, and this is gonna happen. I need it to happen now. Yes. Get out and no joke in the two years, we dated he'd never cheated on me. And after I prayed that he cheated six times. Wow. And I was like, okay. So it took a hard thing. I broke up with the guy. I thought it was gonna marry in. It's not like rainbows hearing got speak. Is that sucked a lot? But then when it came to rebuilding my heart and trusting someone again, I was like all right. We'll God save me. The last time he'll do it again. And it's actually really cool story. I got to call him probably years later because I I was in church, and I was like God what? Between us like is there anything like I'm holding onto like just talk to me. Basically. How do you talk to God? What how do you remind? How does he answer you? How do you know when he's giving you an answer? You just know like it's almost like someone. It's like you think of something you didn't think of. So all of a sudden, I thought oh, come across my mind that I know I did generate. Okay. And there's faith in that too. Because I'm like, no. I'm just thinking that. Right. And then you just trust it and see what happens and if it's not him it'll show itself. But in this case, it was and he was like, you don't believe I won't let you down. Okay. And I was like, whoa. And all knowing response. Yeah. It's like some people everyone's different everyone. Here's got different the feelings our dreams, or in this case, he doesn't always speak like that to me. But when I ask he usually says, something, okay? And so I I was like immediately thought of my. Ex. And I was like oh my gosh. I I prayed for this. And all this time. I've thought that you hurt me in let me date someone who would hurt me. When really he mmediately was like, I say you, and I was like, whoa. You didn't let me down you saved me. And so immediately I remembered I had prayed for it. And I thought of how he must still be feeling. Because he would come to town for the next like year and try and get me back and you're like wrong on your way, not happening yet. She made up your mind you were done house on. Yeah. Also, what you've he cheated on six times that and I honestly was willing to forgive him. And then I remembered what I prayed, and I was like, oh, my bad. Like, I forgot. I totally forgot. Yeah. And I was like I can forgive you in. Anyway, it's this is the real the real deal story. And so I called him year like years later Russell. And I maybe were married at this point awhile. And we were in church, and he was actually leading worship and I walked out. And I yeah. And I called my ex and I was like, hey, I just want you to know that that wasn't you like we weren't supposed to be together. And I wasn't gonna see it other than that. I just wanna release you from thinking that you messed everything up. And I was like I prayed for this to happen. If we weren't supposed to be together, and it happened in it's not your character. And it's not who you are. And you're not gonna you know, all of a sudden, he's crying on the phone. I'm crying. Wow. You gave him serious like forgiveness them. Yeah. And I was like this is not going to be a future. I mean, it's shifted into like prophesying over his life. I'm like, this is not who you are not who you're going to be. You're going to be a great dad and a great husband, and and just kind of let them go. And I mean, he was crying. I was crying what lease some really special thing, actually. And then for him to have that forgiveness for me, you know, and to think that like he doesn't have to be that person. And you won't married has a kid like he's just a good, dude. I hope I think, you know. So I have gone through like the hard stuff with God that that good stuff is that much sweeter. And are you able to see the hard stuff now as part of God's good plan? Totally. That's something. I've been learning lately. Because I used to think things were good or bad. Like if like, Ben. Bad happens, you know, and especially in this industry, this wild industry a roller coaster ride now it'd be like, oh, if things don't go Cording to plan and even with my own career. I've had a wild career and. Yeah, distri it's like so many things of blown up in my face. And in the beginning it crushed me. Like when it first started happening. I was like how can this happen in my life is over? How will we ever like move on? And then comes this next wave of lessons of learning of things getting answered in ways that could have never been answered if if something. Yeah. Bad per se hadn't happened, and it's made me realize that things really aren't bad. You just have to be willing to find the message in them. And it's all for the good. It's all the good offer the good, and we expect it guys going to do things in a way that feel right to us. But God teaches lessons in all different ways. Totally a lot of them hurt. It's not like his goal for our lives, isn't that? It's like sunshine and unicorns. It's not it's that we. We're good people. And we're humble people in that we love others. Well, and sometimes the hard stuff force you to do those things and see what really matters in what doesn't matter. You see you're in Africa with little kids who are smiling bigger than anyone you've ever seen in your life in all they have is a deflated soccer ball. Like, there are things in this life that we think matter that don't at all. Yeah. They just don't they don't. And I think that perspective is what really opens our eyes to it. I totally agree. And this year, my word has been surrender because so good. Well, it's just like I always have so many plans, and I still have so many plans, and I still have so many goals, and like I want my life. I know high want my life to look because I very visionary mind. But also on like, some of the greatest things that ever happened to me have been so off course, you know. Yeah. It's like I'm trying to just let it all role. And if something happens that rocks world get the lesson figure out why it happened. Sometimes being humbled such a good thing to I'm thankful to like, even if I hadn't had that. Heartbreak. How would I ever relate to other girls who've been heartbroken, you know? And what have you you might not even appreciate Russell b. He is you might just think that's how able are people are just like that. No. They're not. But yeah, like, I'm just so even so Russ in I even broke up while we were dating. Okay. Or y'all just just test to make sure when I broke up to we were just we just graduated college. He was about to take off and be the superstar, and I was out of still figuring my stuff out to and so even when that even that ended I'd still with praying. God if this is not your best. If this isn't your best for me, like take him. And so when that happened. I was like, okay. Maybe it's not Russell. And I just had so much peace because I'd already done this, you know, and I'd already and so in turn I didn't get all clinging on him and be like, but no, no we're supposed to be together. We're supposed to be on your faith with straw. Just let him go. I let them go. And I prayed for him and prayed, I would still be like if it's if it Tim bring him back if it's not I don't want him. And sure enough within about a month, he came back, and he called me up thanksgiving while in that month was like, I'm thankful for you. And I was like excuse me. What why are you calling me? Like, I don't know. I just thought about you. And just wanted to tell you thing for you it like, okay? Because he was like, we'll be friends. I was like oh hail. No. I've never been one of those people friends of access. No, I was like you do not get both. You do not get both. And and I think that honestly helped a lot because I just really let him go and I wasn't half their half. Not and not lukewarm. Yeah. Like, you're all in or not, and he came back in all in, and then how long until you married after that he proposed a year in a month or so after that. And then we got married three months after that as soon as we wearing. Okay. So very very real placement. We were like issues. Let's get married. We weren't living together. You know, we were so excited to be married. I didn't I wasn't excited about a wedding. I I really like the sounds so stressful especially as the only girl I was like pressure is on city kind of a low-key wedding there. Six hundred people my gosh, not others. No, I'm not a very anxious person. Which also I think helps with this whole rows of your faith that you don't have anxiety. Probably. Yeah. Probably or so solid faith hours. No, no. There's plenty of times. Like, hello. God a looting being being right here. There's plenty of time. But. When a friend of mine just went through something so hard, and there are plenty of times. I'm like God. Where are you in this? 'cause this is not good in the because life happens and we're not in heaven. So it's just not going to be here. And I understand that. But. Yeah. There's plenty of times that I'm like Hello. This isn't cool. Yeah. This is really really hard. And there were plenty of times in his career. The last five years we've been like where are you? I know. I know I think though that everyone has that journey. Yeah. Especially it's okay. It's human beings. Like if anyone tells you they never questioned anything anytime it'd be like concerned unless they're Russell. And they have the gift of faith. Like, I mean, he just really is like a fairy. And God is everywhere. And so what would it be to be like him for a day? I don't know. I don't know. I'm honestly kinda scared like his. He is eighty see. Oh, it's like Bing Bing being being being. It's so fun. We were just talking about. He's starting his vlag, which who knows if this will ever even happen. I'm going to be honest. His eighty is like I'm super into this right now. Yeah. He's doing the whole thing. Okay. But it's like I watched his first episode, and it truly is like insight into his brain. Okay. Because this is his direction he is shooting. He's choosing. What to film? He's heading to eight is like all over the place. Like it is like a trip through his brain. It's so funny site that's exciting. And I'm just glad I'm not doing it. I'm like, it's kind of fun with the camera babe, I'm gonna chill it's change of roles because you're the video for Hello to CMT number one video. How is that weird like itself funny? I I'm super proud of it because female directors are really rare like really like we were nominated for breakthrough video last year at CMT's. So film, and so they're just making sure we're coming at a rig my situation couldn't check yet. We should I can picture what's happening over here to put on. That's how I'll post that were. Yeah. Yeah. So we were nominated for CMT breakthrough video with yours. Yes. Which was purely just me and him in our front been driving. And that was also a leap of faith video. Because at that point. There wasn't a whole lot going on with Russell's career. No. There was nothing. Everyone said no everyone has said now. So you said, okay. Let me just go out and film this video. Yeah. Well, I had so my fourth brother the one whose apartment we're in. Also, you have a getaway LA, which we have talked. Yes, he moved to Santa Barbara. But he was rent controlled in house. Like, yeah, we're gonna take this over it's a dream. So he is a director has done tons of major major music videos, and so I was a junior in college. And he was like, hey, I just got a nice camera for Christmas. And he had this video job come through that they didn't initially like the first video that was shot. So all the budget was gone. And he's like I have five thousand dollars to pull off video wasn't or Jones. He's like can you bring your camera? And I was like sure, and I was like I've never done this. And he was like I was like rock coming into her moment. No. It wasn't like come away with me. But it was like shortly after. Yeah. And within like five years of that. I don't know. And so we flew out. I was like what are we doing where we going? He's like, I'm taking you to New York. We're doing this some junior college. I've never shot a music video in my life. I just photography. So I don't know I said photography. So we did photography. Like headshots all that in the music school Belmont. And then he was like I've seen your I good is. I get like you. Teach you out of film. You're have the other part. Okay. Thanks, bro. Thank you. So he flew me in where we going like, do you know who Joneses? And I was like, yes. I had come out. Yes. Okay. So she's already so she's already superstar. Yeah. And he has a five thousand dollar budget video. I don't know. How does this happen? Well, they didn't like the first video that was made that used the budget. So then they're like, they're like three do it. And they get were like, let's go with that other guy that we didn't pick his treatment and give him the tiniest budget. Yes. And so we all on her apartment and all these different other places too. But yeah, just around New York to be role, and he did some stuff out in LA. So he was like he's like I have enough on my real. I'm putting you as DP of this music AP me director photography. So like the cinematographer like excusing job. Yeah. Like, I didn't even know how to do that chogori found you. Yeah. It honestly, I wasn't like I'm going to be a cinematographer. So I'd already done it nor Jones origins. That's a good start. So then I came back and did other music videos in Nashville like low-budget, did I give you good confidence boost? Yeah. I guess let me raise my rates and make a living. But like that's the girl that did the nor Jones. Video. Yeah. Guys, I'm a professional for sure. So then when every label said note him, I was like we can do this like we can do this ourselves. And how did you come up with the idea because it's literally Russell walking down a road. I it's raining random, but totally worked out. Yes. It planned or. No, no. So we were just going to shoot test footage in a storm was like rolling in. Because I wanted to be sure I wanted to slow it down speed up the music because it has whatever. And I was like going to share that. I know that I can do this. So we went out there and as we're coming. This storm is just rolling in. And I was like, okay, we need we need to get somewhere. Quick quick. We hadn't even done location. Scouting. We're outside of the prison in not in west Nashville. Awesome. Yeah. There's fire or tornado sirens going off, and we couldn't hear them. But now looking back, I think that's why we didn't get stopped because everyone was undercover we were only there for like an hour and a half. He's walked down this road. Cars would come. And we'd have to redo it. And I'd be like hurry. Hurry. Hurry. The rain's coming. So we were driving. And again, I was like God. It'd be nice. If I all of my shots that I need before the rain comes. And then once I'm done, I need downpour. To get some shots of that does happen. Yeah. And we went back out there to shoot his EP in. Meanwhile, we're leaving. And I'm like I'd called my cinematographer friend in LA, he's like I mean did stuff with grazing outta me. Like, he's insane. And he didn't get back to me because I was like I just wanted to be sure is doing the show rate, everything, right? And he calls me after we're done. And I was like please tell me that this was right. He goes. That's exactly what told you to do house like God. 'cause I was like I got all this lightning. And I was like I can't recreate this. If this happened like I needed this work, right? And it did. And that was kind of your first real video direct all by yourself. Oh, yeah. Very first. And it goes to number one on CMT. Yeah. And you get nominated for music video of the year word. What is that? Yeah. It was. I ended the whole thing. Like, it was all all in house raise that all in house. So you'll Russell are kinda like y'all. That's what's so cool about y'all are so self Nate as a team to because he's obviously the artists with the music, but you are visually creating the he shows me songs in new demos. I see the video and blue Tacoma was one of my favorite that made. You just feel like that the drone looks and everything you're on a I just want everyone to feel like they're they're. They took this road trip with us. I don't want other people in it. I want it to feel like we're in our own world and feel like we didn't that was brought in to direct with me on this one. Because I was like, I don't know how to do all the permits and stuff kidding me. It's like a road trip. There was so many places we need permits and all the legal stuff really sex to joy. Hundred percent, and he had he had done a Mercedes commercial. And so he used those same drone guys on this. He had all the connections of who he wanted. So it was pretty great. Yeah. And that one also made number one the empty. I mean is crazy. So you guys. Okay. Okay. This is what I love you guys too. Because like I feel like for eight years or so y'all were praying for success, right or how long was it? Gosh. Well, really since we got married which was five and a half years ago. So he's been at this since we graduate. He signed his first publishing deal in two thousand when did we graduate college two thousand eleven okay. So he's been at this for eight years. So eight years of waiting believing preparing of planning seeds. I just talked into my coffee. Hey, I like it. Yeah. And then all the sudden all this hard work dislike overflows pays off in like. In one year that all the year. Was it two hours went number one like a week ago last year this last a year ago? So could go eighteen was year. Yeah. That everything was like, we got our first bus. We're not driving van any praise. God I bus to number ones like a CMT nam he was nominated for ace EM's wild. And I heart new artists. That's yeah. Has hasn't happened yet? No, not yet. I mean, I know awesome tours toward a lady or somebody else. We're so spoiled with tours like how is that? Because Charles and Cassie of lady. Yes. My my people how to sell your best. We've only toured with our besties. Okay. So which we didn't know is like rare, so Thomas Rhett, Thomas Rhett, Florida, Georgia line in lady antebellum, our best friends in the industry partially so TR through us a bone like he. Was like this guy's going to be someone just trust me because he asked him on tour. Gosh, when was it was not this last year that you before that before wasn't even on the radio. We didn't even have ready to give him a shot. Yeah. And he had seen the video. We showed it to them and him in Tyler we show Tyler and Hayley Tyler Hubbard, and that's of anal-. Yes, in Tyler was like, you guys gotta show TR the video you gotta show him. So we showed him in DR never heard rusting was like dude, but we are friends of. Yeah. Ever heard him seeing you know, this was like this was right? When we shot the video Tyler Hubbard's wedding. That's how long ago this was. Okay. So that was I think a year after we got married so this is like four or five years ago. Okay. 'cause he released yours for years before it went number one. And at least it with the video that's around. Yeah. It's been around. Alive. Yes. So that far back and TR saw. And then shortly after he saw his streams climbing and then asked him on tour, and he told me I we're playing darts after for heating CMT something at some bar Greenhills. He's like can I tell you something like he's like I'm gonna ask us onto or now's like like freaking out. And he was like you can't tell him though. Like, why did you? I this is the meanest thing you've ever done to me. I said I was supposed to keep this a secret. I was like, no, no, absolutely not. I don't keep secrets from one to. I don't keep really great things from him. Like, what do I made him? Tell about the end of the night. Okay. TR has something you'd like to tell you. So a so great. We were out with Ryan heard and Kelsey Ballerini NTR. Oh my God. It was just like a is. So it was like so young first of all everyone was under thirty pretty sure. Yeah. And just a blast. Patrick together. Yeah. Touring life. Yeah. And then we went out with F geo. And then it's more shows at Thomas Rhett, and then lady so tell me what you have gathered from being on tour. What is life like for you? And what have you learned from being on tour with all of these people who are your best ease in friends? And then also, you know, colleagues it's more of a family than you would imagine. And especially now 'cause TR Lauren have two children, and you were part you went to Africa. Yeah. Orrin. Yeah. What she's getting willa gray? I documented that whole process for her. And just that they would have it. I don't know what they'll do or. But she a lot of people wanted to document it. And she was like it's way too personal. She's like need any do there. And she told me on a Thursday or Wednesday. And we were leaving the next Wednesday. She was like, well you come. And I was like sure, and I go I go to get my shots and Vanderbilt wouldn't give them to me. Like, you need these ten days out. I was like why didn't. I was going to Africa until like now. So I don't know what you want me to do. Yeah. I was like I need a yellow card, and like we don't do it, smells like what the heck some big gave me a whole list of places. And I got an easy to tell me what to call like I was like I don't have time for this. And all of a sudden this one I like that one. It was just a feeling and I call in like sorry. We're not doing this today. Something she was like, let me take your name. And I'll call you tomorrow. So Kaley Dickerson, and she goes, wait a second. What's your husband's name, are you Syria? And I was like Russell. She goes. Can I call you right back, and I was like share? So she calls me back. And she was like, okay. You can come in today anytime they superfan. Yeah. I guess I was like excuse me. What did she goes took care of it? I'm such a fan. Like, our get you in L my God. And I was like, thank you. So I got it. And then that day we flew to threats birthday in Vegas. It was in Lauren was like sheep mind, you they were like this could make you sick. It's the yellow fever shot or something you can make you feel like you have also super pregnant. Yes. This is also in choose pertinent. Yes. And I thought they couldn't have kids. So that's a miracle in itself. Oh, it's amazing. So they're like you could make you sick. And she leaves the room. And I was like not in Jesus name. I'm not getting sick. Knows that I go to biggest. And I was like Lauren I got my shot. Everything's cool. And she was like how do you feel like five? This is the shot Tyler got that made him miss in award show that Tom's had to sub for him because he actually had the flu from it. Oh, I'm great. It doesn't make everyone sick. Like Cassie Kelly. Just got how you feel great. But because she's an Africa right now on her way. Yeah. Y'all Saint place. I know Lauren is taking a trip to just kind of bring people into what they're doing with love one and show him how they're changing all these kids lives, and it's incredible. What they're doing. So I I've been there. I've seen it. I tried to go this year. I wanted to go, but it was overlapping tour, and it's his first headlining tour, which is also. Yes, amazing co headlining Carly our girl Carly peers, and they both have a Russell to be soon. Hit. Yes. Every little thing. A little Fe which is sorry that they have. They thought about calling the tour that they went back and forth. Maybe do a mash up. I don't know. But it's a quick little tour. It's only four we have been as a headlining insane. From all these tours of your friends colleagues all that like he is dreamt of this for so long in in his mind. Like he designed the lights like he he had it all up here in just was like go talk about how it's going. What's the response been? It isn't saying like hill finished blue Tacoma. I cried first of all the first night because they were saying every little things so loud so loud. And I was like this isn't even like top forty. I don't think I was like what is going on in either. I mean, I looked around like, I'm not the only one here because there's plenty of shows only being like that would just stay there. Once I remember specifically in Georgia, and my brother was there and the boys had set everything up soundcheck in the no one cared. Like, no one. It was a pool hall new just me, my brother and sister in law, and we stood up. They're like dance like crazy people because we're like we're sorry. No one else's here. You know? And so I looked out and there was like over two thousand people, and I was like just I mean just to come from nothing. Yes. It just the feeling that you have to feel I'm so grateful hard work. Yes. Persistence. The faith it makes you grateful. You're not you don't resent it. You're not like a we're going. There are plenty of people were like, oh, we have to go to this station. And we are like we get to go yet. Like, you know, how long we prayed to have a conversation on radio like you kidding me. So I think the the grind, and the hustle is lends itself to so much more gratitude than anything else can -absolutely nothing against anyone. It was given to. But like it's just not going to lend itself to being really grateful because it takes a lot out of you. It is it it does it. And you have to like love this with your entire you can't half love. No, you you'll just get you won't make it. And maybe you do and then you resent it. And then it just that's not a way to live I interviewed. Jesse Alexander awhile ago. She's a huge songwriter. Awesome. And I love her. I love her so much, and we were talking about just the grind, and you know, being in the music industry. And she was like everybody will get humbled at some point, you know. And so it's just like you some people come in, and they're huge, and it's like instant. But like everybody is going to get humbled because you just it's a part of life is a part of the journey. And so like, you're saying to had all those years of grinding to know what it feels like to have no one at the shows, you know, to still have your faith or it makes it so sweet. So annual always have this appreciation to be there. Oh my gosh. Yes. Yes. And amen. We said that the other day of how oh someone was just talking about artists comparing themselves to each other and feeling like there's enough room at the table. Right. And I was like we learned that lesson in a very quiet place because rust actually turned down the deal FDA took and we watch them below up in front of our faces. And at first we were like dang it. Did we make a mistake? But that was never our deal. And it wouldn't have worked for him because we didn't have crews. They had crews like just as simple as that and other XM radio deal. No, it was they're like publishing kind of label deal at at the time and still they still are with its big loud. Oh, yeah. And arrested turned down. And we were like, oh, did we make a mistake? 'cause nothing's happening for us in like we learned that was there. And yet there's no comparison. There's no you cannot be like weed. Chose to celebrate them and cheer them on. And I feel like that is such a pivotal. And I think that's why he has what he has in my opinion because he will champion everyone around him. He's not mad when someone gets something. He wants that. He's been that. And we did that in in a quiet place. We went through it. So that now we're not ruining relationships because there are some people who like kind of, you know, they're just not as welcoming or they think that they have to upstage or whatever. And we're like there's room at the table. I love what you're saying. Because like an a different way like I'm kind of career wise. And then also like I've been on a big pregnancy journey and like miscarriage, and like we tried for a long time to get pregnant and didn't happen. And it's just like I chose from the beginning that I was always going to be happy to support my friends who were having success in babies because exactly like you're saying it is so easy to want to feel sorry for yourself to get upset too. To be angry at the situation and same with like music career. Something can go so great for you and then fall apart and right enough. And it's like you're going to let your you can feel sad and upset for yourself. But to not be able to celebrate other people I feel like is such a. You're you're missing out. You really miss out on joys of life because yours will come. You know, totally oil. Come it might only come. If you choose to celebrate other people. Yeah. Only come that way. And just like when you see people who like me hard sometimes 'cause you can be really hard season of life. And yeah, everyone else can be totally flourishing around you. But still it's like you have to have that faith that what's four you will be for you. And celebrate other people. Yep. I love that. You said that because that is something I have just been noticing and thinking about all the time because when you are and heart season, you want wanna feel sad sometimes. But you're like no this not bigger than me. And totally someone else. Getting something doesn't mean you won't exactly why is that. I don't fear that every that's part of the problem with thinking like there's not enough. Right. That God is he's infinite. Yeah. Literally infinite so what he has him giving one thing to something. He's not out of it. Now, he's not running his. Short stockholders, not depleting. Like, it's he is infinite like it never ends. Like, it's all good. You know? And I think you have to realize that and believe it in order to celebrate other people. I agree the secret to life celebrating the people. A man to that. I think it is. I love that. So how do you? Okay. So when y'all were in a period where it wasn't going for you turned down an opportunity. How how did you deal with it privately? And how did you was that a decision that you made or was it just like how did you work through that? I think we kinda ran towards it. Instead of like backing away from our friendships, we ran straight to the heart of it. And we got nothing but closer with Tyler and Hayley. And I mean, we would go to their beautiful home. And then come back to our little duplex that we were renting, you know, in the replenish opportunities to be jealous, or, you know, want what your neighbor has. But we're like, no we're gonna love the crap out of them. And we're just going to be best friend and change are there. Some of our sweetest dearest. There's some of the greatest people on the planet on the planet hundred percent, like they're just wonderful people in if we would have let that come between us and resentment or whatever which I'm sure he doesn't even if he heard this. He'd be like what that was hard for you guys. Even never even talked about it because it truly we we just ran towards it. Yeah. Instead of shying away. Yeah. You're gonna love them or just gonna love him. We didn't. I really admire that I really do because that is such a incredible trait to have and it shows how much faith you have and how loving yours a human. Because that that's one of the hardest things. I mean, what is it like, it's it's one of the seven deadly sins Joe's zero, and it's like it happens everyone, especially in this industry. That's why navigating it in the way that you guys have chosen to navigate it with faith with love with, you know, just working on your self and your art in. Yeah. Celebrating everyone else like that is really inspiring. Thanks. It really is not always been easy. But it's it's worth it. It is worth it. And then look at your joyful life. Just trying to be like unicorns and rainbows over here. He makes it pretty easy to me about Europe because you own a big Europe trip. Yes, we always speaking of your guards. And you said that you were thinking Paris might let you down. But it did it did not. I thought it was going to be hype because you have this imagination in this like picture, I have so romantic, and it's gonna be this granted, I've come to learn whether determines if I like city one hundred percent, okay. So like we went to Amsterdam on this same trip. But it was rainy and it was cold in Iowa getting sick. And I I need to go back because I didn't love it. Because of that aren't feeling great someone we know when they were in Paris. It was like that. So they didn't love it. When we were there. It was like seventy every day in sunny like high of seventy so it was like fall like early fall. And it was incredible. It was incredible food. Did you eat incredible? What'd you get pasta every day go? Yes. Everything croissant is. Yeah. Macaroni muck roles. Lack roles. I don't even know we don't speak French. So the secret I will say the secret is trying to you know, everyone's like French people are so rude. They hate us baba. So we would walk around and be like do the heinous due to. And if you try to communicate in French, they will be more welcoming to you. That's what we learned. So how would you speak to them? Pose you buy we'd like do you speak English in French? Uh-huh. And then there'd be like, yes. And then they're more likely to be kind to you. Because if you walking in being like, hey, can I get assuming they speak English jerk. American yet. I think that's why because we just assume they know our language like what if one was French walked up to just started received. If you'd be like excuse me, do I look French like rent? Yeah. Yeah. But the food was crazy. We did per Cassie Kelly's recommendation. She has like everywhere. Texter? And you're like ham going here. She sends you an entire note of every location every rushing keep notes on every. Yes, every city. She's incredible goals. I call her the first lady of country music. Yes. I'm like fashionable like knows how to like accidentally flips houses like she goes. And makes them so fabulous that people come over. And they're like, I'm buying your house. And that she has to do it all over again style is just impeccable perfect. Every time just who she is. It just uses out of this. I know it's you just lay atlas but chambers is she calls everything. Fabulous favorite. I like it never used that word until I was wrong Cassie, and I'll be like, it's fabulous. Because that's what she does. She's just the best. But she has entire lists of every city. My God putting them in yelp. So I'm like trying to find a way. I don't know. There's probably a better way to do. This so comment if you know one, but I wanna start having like booklets or whatever lists in yelp. Okay. To share? I love. I don't know. If that's the thing. I started putting hers in there. And like, the ones we liked and started writing reviews and trying to have different cities that I could be like, hey, go because then when you're going to Paris, I don't know if you can do this. But you go to my profile, right? You're yelp profile. And then see what I've saved. Yeah. That'd be like, oh that one's gonna close to us. Because. With her list. I have to yelp everyone to know where to okay in find it started like putting them into digital take her list verbatim. We went to at least three of the places she recommended, and they're all just Sabio list as she said that one of them we spent the most money we've ever spent on a meal truly it was right after blue Tacoma went number one got to celebrate. Oh, yes. We hadn't done like a big celebration dinner. So we did this eight core. Stop something. What you eat everything was soft. That's a funny thing about the French. I'm like do they not have teeth like everything is like moose flaw gras like everything? Okay. Yeah. I was like if I'm going to do these things you're gonna hear that good for them. Or don't. That's good is an American version who knows they could be totally messing. You shouldn't have said that I should be more open minded. Everything like that s cargo and every little every teeny tiny portion was it all delayed. It was a little quail wing. It was like this big. And like the meat was like that. And you just it was and then all these, desserts and wine pairings, it was crazy. It was crazy. Some of the some of it was like us a little crunch. But that's what. Like all these teeny tiny, Moose's soups and everyone so teeny tiny in France. You think are they don't know. I don't know that they are. I don't think I noticed drink every fatty everything was fatty. Okay. It's like real food. I don't think it's so much true. True. And we had an Italian meal there that they wield out a whole thing of parmesan. Okay. And they like scraped it and lit it on fire and how Haas my pasta in it. And you die. Oh, there's one of the best. Like, I was like just behind Russell's head. We were in this out. It'll alley what is life. Right. That. Honestly, I would go back anytime. I was the last place. I wanted to go before we start talking about having kids because I want to go to Paris. So we're talking about having kids we're talking about. Okay. We're talking about. Hey, I like the kid combo. Oh, yeah. We're working on it. Well, we're always working about it. But we've been married five years. And that was my like I want five years of just us. Yeah. I love that. Because I wanted to know just if if anything comes whatever like, I know what is so strong intrinsically is the right word. I don't know just found that I know who we are that you can feel if it changes, I totally get that one. I've been together. Now, ten years. Yes. We had a two year break in between. But years two years. I don't think I knew that. I knew that we had a nice little break in between. That's not even a break. That's like a break up that is a break up on a break. We broke up. I moved cities and states. And I didn't know if we're gonna get back together. Get weren't you in Texas or something? Yeah. Yeah. Austin and. But I feel like that same way we have been through so much like a bit with him SU twenty one years old. I was twenty four I'm older. And we were the flip. I was twenty one Russ was twenty three I think. Okay. When we started dating I personally for me. And every story is different. I'm so glad to have gone through all of this Lisin developing together. Same even though it has been like the row kids has been in a lot of. Yeah. Wildest same. Also most exciting phases you could ever be. And because my okay we survived. So so much like we have lived through all these things that I know now when we bring a child into this world like you are saying, I know who we are through and through like, there's there's nothing you could tell me about Michael nothing, nothing that could shock me saying, you know, we're so I I know him better probably than I even know myself mostly because I'm around him be better than I. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We know how to fight with each other. Now, like learning all that fighting nice. You gotta fight. Nice. Not nice. Because in the beginning. We weren't perfect fighting me. I wasn't. Hothead? It's a learn fighting is a learned skill. Okay. So how did you learn how to fight? How do you fighting? We it is a learned skill. Yeah. It really is an involves respect I think he was so afraid of commitment, which shocks a lot of people. 'cause thank God. I'm yours. Right. But he was so afraid of commitment that I had to learn how to fight with him, really gracefully. Okay. And really more. So just disagreeing, and we couldn't have big fights because that would freak him out. Okay. So I kind of learned probably a bad trait stuff it and find a way to I would sleep on it. And I would find a way to say it kindly in the morning or like. Stuffing for a long time. No, I couldn't for too long but take ownership like really zoom out of the situation. 'cause I wasn't as emotional the next day. Very wise. Yeah. Well, I had to they wouldn't work. Yeah. And be like, all right. This is what I've done wrong. And I know that and this is what you didn't that really hurt my feelings. Anything we disagree or whatever. It's usually hurt my feelings. Okay. We don't I don't ever really get mad at him. I got mad at him one time specifically recently. So probably more times that I've just forgotten this one time. Yes. I came home. I'd asked him to do the laundry put away the laundry. Okay. Because he wanted to go work out. And I love working out them choosing. My my speaking life over this actually hate it. Choosing to start saying I love working out because I'm hoping I get there. So you love file love or cking at its I pave or if you could hear this right now. He'd be dying because he's like always convincing. I'll make you coffee. If we go work out. So in this Nereo he wanted work out. And I was like shirt, but I need you to do this because I don't have enough time in the day to do this. And then get ready for bus, call and I- birthday party tonight. So while I'm at the birthday party. I am I need you to do this laundry. And it was just putting things on hangers and high prime now more hangars because we were running low gave them all of the tools already. Alright stage was set. I come home. The hangers are in the prime now bags by the door. All the clothes are still out here. And he was playing video games in the basement tell you, I think that's I think that's guys. I lost my ever loving. Did you kind blow? Oh, yeah. Anything? No. Well, yeah. Yeah. I guess I was just so so angry 'cause I was like I do everything for us. Oh, I asked you for help once which is if you do any Graham, what are you? I'm a three three two two three Cheever helper. Yes. So like this was my to wing freaking out because now you're two innings in house. Right. So I always help him always have helped him. But that's what I love it. But I asked for help his he is a seven. That's what Michael is the day is long straight seven best day of his life. Every day up has enough energy to do everything the happiest people, they're they're really happy. But I know Michael seven two and I'm just like a thank God. You know, I'm four I am an emotional. What? I bet you have a strong three ring wing. No, yes. You're gonna Cheever achieving. I am four four four four does live and my emotions and thank God. I'm married a seven I would just be at the bottom of the crime three seven four seven is like it's like the perfect ten. Oh, I like that like in a cheek because I have the Cheever and he has the dreamer. And so I'm like, let's do this. Ron stoppable? Let's go. Okay. He has the energy that keeps me going. Yes. Like this whole thing. Anyway, my to wing to explain so when when they're in stress, they go eight so. I blew up. I didn't like him actually blow up, but I started cleaning and being loud. I got it. I was like clearly you don't like. So mad some an he never plays video games through like all the days. I never he's not that guy. 'cause I when he wanted to get an XBox. I was like gross like, I think guys like obsessive video games. It's so unattractive knows. Like do. You really want to be unattractive to me? Like, that's how I pitched. But for him. I'm actually glad he has it because he never plays it. And if he does because he's actually so exhausted that he needs something to shut his mind off allies keep dreaming and keep brainstorming, and he'd never he never sits and stops. Yeah. And so it makes them sit and stop. So he really never does that ever. And so I was like all the days. I was so so how did that one end? We went to bed angry, which did he defend his video games Ohno? He knew he definitely wrong. Yeah. Well at one point he like jump up start hanging things up. Oh, yeah. He rose to the and I was like. No, forget it. I've got. Yeah. So I go to sleep mad which said this recently on another podcast that I I think that's one of the things in the bible that I'm like I disagree with you. Because it says like don't let the sun go down on your anger. But mind, you this already down first of all. And I just have a clear head in the morning. Well, it's better not to fight when you're enrage. Oh, you know, I have learned that about myself because I get activated kind of easily. I've worked on it a lot lot therapy. A lot of self realization that like angers never good things. If I feel angry and hot that is not the time to talk about something. It is definitely not the time. And what is it's like, there's a acronym. It's like not when you're hungry. Tired halt halt angry lonely? Tired angry tired? Yeah. And I was tired. I was exhausted. It was like the week of every Christmas party every everything we'd just come off the road, we'd hosted two huge things at our house, and I have nothing left. And that's when I was like us for help once which I ask for help all the time. Just so dramatic. Like, you're not allowed to not help me. I help you all. Speaking totally crazy. It happens though. Oh, yeah. You know, it does. It was like in the I did that a bunch in this podcast. Oh, sorry. Hey, I hack all the time. Mike off. But I think that is one of the great things about marriage is. Learn each other learning you're breaking points learning how to navigate those situations and not getting lost in them. Not thinking isn't the end of the world. It's just a moment. It was moment. Next morning. The next more. It was so cute. He gave me a card and everything. Okay. 'cause I've never actually I don't think I've ever actually been mad at him. And that was the first time in five years it. Wow. So this was this was this was a moment. Yeah. Card say it was just like thank you so much for everything you do for our families. Love you so much of so sorry. You know, like like, this is maybe I should get mad at you more off so cute. I really don't get mad at him. Mostly my feeling hurt. I feel. Yeah. Because I'm pretty like, I'm pretty good at recognizing. I feel lonely. So instead of doing something to pull him in like getting upset about something. So he comes close. I just I just tell them. Yeah. I'm like, I need more of you. I haven't seen you Nuff. I feel like I'm in the background. What's your love language quality time? Okay. And so which is also why I kind of have to be on the road. Because otherwise, I don't know. I'm not words. I don't need in that scenario. I guess I would have been acts of service. Yeah. But yeah, I just like being around him in most of the time I can just be in the same orbit, and we don't have to be alone. But sometimes I do need just like any just Yoon me. Let's go for a walk. You're saying going for walk is like a key to have you marriage. It's my yeah. Thomas keesa, heavy marriage walks. Okay sex. I agree with that to some people aren't about that. But like, I mean, I totally agree with that on a very regular basis. Yes. Yeah. Oh, we have ended over this. We have where team like try for every day. I mean, well, I maybe that seven who's just having lucky joys all things in life. Michael is like down every day. Yes. Yeah. And so I'm just like, okay. Why would I fight this a because? Yeah. Fun and be it's cheaper than therapy. Cheever therapy. And keeps you so connected. Yes. It really does that drifts apart ever which ours never has. Because I just decided one day. I was like I'm gonna make this a priority. Same and we're like I heard it somewhere girls, crock pots and men are like microwaves of you ever heard that. Oh that like our? Like, our sexual everything is more of a slow steady all day kind of thing. Yes. Yes. So like if they float with us all day, and they but you just like kiss a guy for two seconds. And they're like being we're ready. You know, we're more were it's all mixed together. Can't like separate like if you were jerk early in the morning, we still feel that at night. It's guys are not as much like that in my experience. I agree. And so, yeah, if I in my if I set my crock pot too low in the morning, Mike, mentally, then when it comes time whenever we do. I'm like, yeah. I've been thinking about it of in processing, and it makes me open, and I can't stuff things because if that's going to happen. We're gonna have had a conversation if I'm upset about something. Absolutely. Makes me communicate makes him really set a mental and sweet all the time. Yeah. I mean, not all the time. But modestly a lot. I know. I think having. Sexual relationship keeps your relationship. Yeah. Healthy I feel like it's like insurance for your marriage. Okay. Wait this great. Tell me why tell me what that means. I don't know. I just feel like it helps make you invincible like you're coming. You're intentionally. You are one as a married couple. You're choosing to be one in just reiterating over and over. We are one we are one. Yeah. And I think it's great. I love that. I agree. Hey, high five great marriage sex for walks going for wall a love. Good walk. You get your communication. You get. I I like to say the shoulder to shoulder men communicate better shoulder to shoulder than face-to-face. Okay. And I get that. In my experience doesn't have read it somewhere. I can't remember super interesting girls. Like, let's get coffee. It's likes it. Yeah. Like guys if they were doing this podcast. They'd be like this because they're more open. Totally. Much. So we go for a walk and he just dreams in. I enjoyed to. We'll we'll pray while we walk because you're not just like sitting ruling bed. You're like in Jesus name. Amen. It's like that your conversation. Yeah. God, we pray for this friend who has cancer. Like, we say, no, yes. Yeah. You know, like where we'll pray for this person's marriage, or I don't know. It's more conversational doesn't end. I love that. It's great wine wine. Yeah. Also leads to the grates expert. Not too much though. Yes. Yes. He is a little wino-. I call him. Why? No. Is that like a negative turn? Well, I just I it's a thing. Now, it's even on his apps. He just puts his wine glasses and left. I was like. Oh, yeah. It's fine. It's he doesn't do the thin ones. Just to reassure everyone who gets terrified. It's going to break those out if they're like, really fine ones. He doesn't he doesn't have a certain consistency. Yeah. It has to be like thickness might indestructible. Yeah. Because but it's never too tie. Whatever. I mean, I love it. Yeah. He he liked the psalm documentaries. Have you ever watched those? Oh, SO M S. Yeah. Becoming a master small EA. Oh, and it's documentary. There's three of them now of these people trying to be masters in it is wild like they have to blind taste three whites. Three reds say what year they are where they're from. There's tundras right or thousands of one. Yeah. Oh, yeah. In regions. And there's only there's less than one hundred masters in the world. Well, so the first documentaries really cool watching that process because it's like you have to be a savant like this is not a normal person's skillset. Yeah. The funny part about is. We watched the first one when it came out on on our TV and our old apartment living next to miss, Kathy. And her cat in our little duplex drinking box wine watching this documentary about. I taste cheery law. Cardboard car tennis balls. So money we like watched and drank the cheapest wine Basel because that's all we could afford. And so then the second one came out, and we got even more we watch the second one like eight times, I watch the theirself on that second one is my favorite tells you why all of the things are as important as they are. Okay. Like, even how wine of was affected by war. And it's really cool. So anyway, it got him super into wine. So I call him Russell, dick some. Does he doesn't swirling? Which is disgusting. I like hate when people do that. But he does it every now. And then if it's a very nice wine. He loves it. It's really it's really cute. I love that very into it. And I get to reap the benefits of it. I'm like, this one's delicious. Thanks. Hey. Thanks for scoping. Yeah. Exactly. So what are your watching on that flexi says, it's not Netflix? But marvelous Mazel love love, we have two more episodes. And I like refused to watch them because I don't want it to be over. I'm just like that. I'm like it can't be up. We're catching up on. This is us because I knew you're in for that. I love it every time I'm in and I'm like, okay. Love watching this. But I have to gear up for each opposite. Yes. 'cause I know it's going to just hug all my heartstrings. Yes. Which I love feeling all the things, but he's less likely to be like, yeah. Let's watch it as a seven because sevens. Avoid pain in that show has a minute. So really hits his Mazel like the funny one, you know, he's really sweet he watches what I wanna watch. Because a lot of. I think it is kind of like a spiritual thing for me. I if it's really heavy and dark. I really really feel it. Yes. An I Mike why am I pray against all of these heavy dark things and then submitting myself to them and watching. I'm like, this makes no sense. So one day. I was like if it's not if it doesn't make me feel great. I'm not we have enough real stress in our lives. I don't eat fake stress a love that. So we're happy show people. That's how we are up being friends like religiously all should watch last night on earth. Have you seen that? Yes. It's so silly. I we kind of back up it kinda took a little getting a little more intense. But like Michaels same say that I was the best pilot ever seen of last man on earth. He's like bowling with cars are blowing up. Yeah. That's one of my favorite pilots of all time. We watched the whole first season. And then I think we lost interest in the second. Yeah. It's kind of cheesy. But it's Michael Sam we remind me of January dunes. Okay. Great. Thanks. Yeah. She's a babe. Okay. So obviously, I want to talk to you forever. But I have to two baths, call and there's laundry and all sorts. Yeah. Honey, Honey, but I like to leave all my leave your light. So just obviously your super inspiring this all's inspiring. But what do you want people to know? What's a message? You wanna speak into people? Ooh. That. Just love people love them hard. And well in intentionally and I personally think being known is even better than being loved because in our culture. Everything is just like, oh, I love you love you love you. But like nothing communicates love like actually investing in people in knowing them and knowing them well and in turn you're loving them. Well, I love that investing in people invest in people. Do you invest in a lot of people or do you are you? I it in. Yeah. I used to do a lot L A's helped your in that in. Yes, that's part of the reason the apartment visit just to have alone time and not say yes to everything. Yeah. You said a quote like if you say, yes, everything is because you're not learning. How to prioritize your nose or something? Yeah. Yeah. Just because you're. I forget exactly what it was. But if you're saying, yes, everything is only showing that you don't know how to say no something to that effect. Like, I I had to really learn that. Yeah. 'cause one day I woke up, and I realized I was like I've gone to coffee eight times this week in every single time. I was helping someone and it was not reciprocated. Yes. And I was like, okay. That's the two wing. I enjoy it. But you can't eventually. But then I realized I hadn't seen my very best friends the ones who don't need me. Yes. In the best way. Is there sip Rakha friendships? Yes. And I was like dang like, I really need reprioritize my life. And so I my circle got smaller and smaller and unless it's reciprocal like it really doesn't get much because there's not much of it left. I think that's so important. I feel like I've been that same way. I was of of always loved to be social, no, everyone love everyone. I hit a breaking. Point in the past couple of years. I'm like, I am tired. Like, I love knowing so many people and being in community. But saying it's like, you just wanna pour yourself into the relationships that really. That are lifelong. Yeah. Aren't like. And if someone comes around and totally and it's great. But it's like I'm not seeking that out like they used to. We had so many people live with us. Stay with us who needed us like those were beautiful times. But all of a sudden one year, I was like at season's done. Yeah. And that was the beginning of this last year in ever in thank God. Because if I had we had nothing left on we were so exhausted that if we were banking on anything in return from these people, we would have been screwed. Like, not the people who stayed with us. But the ones who always needed our time. And yeah, we really had to rein it. And I love that. Yeah. I love you. You're still wise girl. I love you. I love you. I'm serious. I love you so much little miss sunshine over here got well. I have a rain cloud to I have my number four like my four is like it's a secret raincloud there. Well, I haven't seen it. I worked on it a lot. Because like, I'm just I'm a romantic that's forest. So I get so lost feelings I've had to learn how to separate them all and realize like not get like goat on the landslide with them. And that's my thirties. I will say I've gotten a lot better like therapy. And Michael there may there be. Feel everything to the bottom like now. But when I feel something and like affects me, I have to go to the bottom so hard this feel it feel and that's why I can recover quickly from things like some people something will hit them, and it will take them years to process or like months for me. I'm like in it all the way down immediately like there, and then I just figure out how to get out of it. So it's really intense, but fast, that's good. That's a good thing. You know, how to do that? It's also psycho because like five polar sometimes. Oh, yeah. We'll have freaking Levy thank you for joining coming over. Yes. Love it. I found the road. Thank you so much for joining me on this episode with Kaley Dickerson. She is such a bright light love her so much next week.

I'm talking on the phone. They design meal plans for you. How you get in shape. It's been great. I have to say I fell off the bandwagon more Texas hardcore and I told colleen that today and she said a lot of people have and don't feel bad about it but instead of feeling bad about it try to get to the root of why you were eating junk every day or like what you were doing and I think it was because I just WanNa fuck kid not worry. Dr Pepper made me feel like that. And plus it tastes so good everybody loves eating like a six year old but now back on it and I'm back on profile plan and I have been Peleton twice twice this week.

But we're really on a health kick now walk today. Peleton's Today we're just trying to stay active most hired and my back hurts all the time. I'm like my back hurts not corona because I know aching part of it so eight month old and she's crawling now. She is crawling and they go. I mean moms out there note everywhere. You're not supposed to go wherever there's a wire wherever there's a sharp object. We're there's something fall off of Air. She is that's it. I mean you give her all the toys play mats safe places to play in the world. What does she do? She wants to go for the electrical soccer. Though it is funny. What are your on the bed? You're playing what does she do? She dive straight for the edge of tested. The theory to see. Oh Man. I was in the bathroom the other day. And you had sunny on the bed and all the sudden here a squeal and I see her mid fall in the bed Qatar. I know the holter going straight down. It's like well you gotta make. I don't know maybe you make them realize that like danger but maybe that comes later. They don't think about it now. No but you know she was okay. I was watching. I know you're a great dad. You really are great. I've to say you're the sweetest you're the most fun always smile real big hitter. I've done pretty good. No complaints them. Your line know what something I could do. Better and worse. What's the what's how could I improve? What am I doing great? Oh that's a loaded question. I think you're doing great. You do absolutely. I think you're doing great. Yeah we both have our naturally anxieties of a first child. But just for this to be honest because this is a real conversation. I don't want all y'all think that Michael and I haven't fought during this first. Eight months of Sonny's life. I mean every you so if you're thinking like oh they just have it all together and there's perfect we've had some knock down drag outs. Being new parents exhausted down drugs. Well I mean for us. I mean. We're not knocking dragon. No yeah at like four in the morning when you're so tired your baby screaming. You probably aren't gonNA respond perfectly natural. Yeah I like the EU discharge it up to that. You don't take it too personal to serious. I don't either. I learned from me on that. There's such a country boy at heart. You're so black and white would step. Sometimes I like that about you a few questions then. I just have some questions. Bill what do you want us to chart right? He said well they girl. Sore sources shapes sizes colors have one main function. Yeah like opinions. They all stink just got married. Don't have a baby. Does sex change after a baby to sex questions. I will say there a difference between having sex and making love totally. You GotTa do both. Sometimes you're more Anna having sex face because you don't have time to make love but you gotta you gotTa keep the lovemaking in there. I think I think when you have a baby it just the the timeframe of all that is different. When it's just the two so enjoy just the two of you now. Yeah and then when you have a child which we hope you do if you want one between naps in as always baby monitor in the room and sometimes that goes off and what do you do well shit is sometimes you just gotTa work at into Your Day. Some does yes schedule it sometimes. It's like an APP. It's like okay. Let's do this. We have thirteen things to do in this one hour that she's sleeping so sex is one of the things on the list. It's not like you can figure important to keep it on the list. Don't worry about what you're getting booted off the list. No I think that's held every couple. You know know you would say that. We've put your Mica logo. Oh man that really got me shocker. Yeah Oh man just honest with all right. We're just we're just girlfriends talk show. It is important to this. How will say like we? Sometimes we get in little phases where it's like. We're only having sex not making love. And then we make we make a little love and remember why so important to like. Turn the lights down. Get a playlist going relaxed a little bit like take some time okay. That's all I have to say that every day because that's too much work. I mean I'm saying we got nobody got time for that all the time. The board to keep it on the list. What other questions get same order you want to talk about? What's on your. What are you in quarantine. What have you liked okay? Tell me what they're obviously. There's so many terrible things about what's happening in the world right now. We all know them but like that there's also a flipside where there are positive things so what are something. What's what's something that has surprised you that you have enjoyed during this lockdown. I think You know for me. It's like the permission which is weird to thank the permission to enjoy your family. Enjoy your time in like really like there's really nothing else you know you can do. I mean I'm still writing songs and and do a sign or not to radio and be looking for and you know the only difference. Res- is like we're just. We just can't go on tour. Which is a bummer. We miss seeing our friends and our crew and our family and in Rhode Family. And you know that that plus I. This is the first time in my life. I have not been on the road. It's an Rioja it's a readjustment for sure. Like when you first started staying home for awhile in the beginning I was like you got to go on the road. You're messing up my flow at home so very healthy relationship between you and outcomes that but you know so it it's it's been an adjustment to like actually figure out like okay. It's okay just like this is a moment in time. That will never forget this moment in time. That will never probably again. We don't and to really enjoy the people around you and the family and like do things that you've never been able to have time to do what you are doing. House handyman like work. I have never seen you do so many things around the house you have lately. Garages SPIC and span. Do sometimes plus. It's always like put some love into what you what you love. You love to power-wash I mean the whole house is power. Wash which I really appreciate you so I think that's kind of been one of the things that have been positive. It's also you know for me. I'm always like doing stuff and like working and like like doing so it's unnatural to like have a ripple and I think a lot of people feel that way out there like wait a minute. You know but you're also learning and discovering new ways to do things and be more productive to concentrate on important things in other important things as well. I think it's kind of opened up the world to a whole new way of working. You don't have to necessarily go into an office or yeah I mean doing meetings over zoom and write songs every man. Yeah I mean in your regular court whole songs I presume. Yeah we've been yet do it? So it's it's been Kinda cool with like you know. Kinda push yourself outside your comfort zone either first songwriting session of resume and you wrote a great song. We did that. And it's all a little weird weird I mean I think you know. Instead of focusing on what the negative side effects of this situation like the positive things that are coming out of it or just like people are growing in like doing things in in different ways than there used to getting out of their covers on which I think is a pretty cool deal you know. They're wearing a suit on top and sweatpants on the bottom. You had a zoom meeting today and you literally came out with your sweatpants on the bottom and you had on a button up all your necklaces. Hat everything on top of great. You still want great. You Still WanNa make an impression. Yeah but that's only because you can come see legs as the way I feel about you. What have you learned through this whole with this current situation? I'M GONNA interview the interviewer. I feel thankful and grateful that you and I like Carpe Diem. Seize the day and we went to Texas and hung out at the farm for month with my sister. Catherine brother-in-law Willy and East genevieve. Because in my parents they would social distance coming but they were still involved with their life and stuff and doing things like a small level so they just stayed at their house but it was really cool to hit the pause button be in nature. We're very blessed to have that chance to go be a nature and like have a month just to be with them. Which one will we ever do that again? That in like to hike every day and to be outside every day and to have like piece of dislike quietness. I don't know I have never really lived on a farm before lived lived and I know you grew up on a farm but we're farmers but we grew up on. That's right yeah but I just I appreciate that and I tried to say president every day that this was a moment in time that we probably will never ever experience again and like you said. We had permission to to press pause. Because there's nothing to do. Actually there was a whole lot of fear happening. There still is a lot of fear but there is a lot of fear happening in beginning and I don't know that felt really good to me. Just be a nature via family. Absolutely incredible sunny got to be with genevieve which is really cool cousin. I don't know the whole world's weirder and I think like you're saying sort of just It's like opening my mind to the fact that nothing is certain we put in place all of these systems and all of this stuff all these rules and things that we have to happen to make the world run and then we've seen everything to stop on a dime so realize that nothing is certain and what is certain to me. Is The people that you love. And I don't know trying to make an impact around people that you love and that you care about and help where you can and then everything else. I pretty much like so. Many people's careers have just stopped. You know because they can't like somebody careers involving around people serving people servicing people. I would think about the people right now that you're in the medical field and the nurses and everybody out there and like the people like really you know there's a there's there's two sides of it you know you're either super involve saving the world or pause and you know. I think it's important for people to take time. That are on pause to help and appreciate the people that aren't because it really is zero or sixty point And and you Kinda I I find myself feeling guilty. Sometimes that like. I'm not on the sixty side but there's nothing to do if you are not in those occupations like you really need to get out of the way. I think doing your part in staying home in in in following the rules is your contribution to the other side you know and not being reckless and not being and helping where you can small businesses. Where you can. I mean all those things are your contribution to you know. I mean just because we can't work as far as touring doesn't mean that we can't do other things to Kinda staying at home you know. Essentially as is what you're supposed to do that helps the people that are working so I mean you know it's a it's a crazy time and it's it's something that I hope. People stay positive in their situations. I hope people stay motivated and also you know take a deep breath and find things that they love or maybe there's something they wanted to do. They never had time to do like try. You'll give it a go being only upset and sad like try to use this as a chance. Yeah you don't enjoy your family. You know you know some people enjoy your family like I'm away from my family a lot. You guys obviously being on the road and it's it's been a really special time for me actually being home for the first year of our daughter's life in like being able to Be with her and see her grow and see her do her thing because you know once all this goes away everything turns back on. And we're GONNA get you know so you know looking at the at the positive sides of things you know that you know the time that you'll never get back and that's kind of what I'm thinking with this whole. I'm trying to be that way. What do you do to stay present? What are your tricks to stay present? How do you stay in the moment like with sunny? Like say like say you wanted to just like notice a moment. Be In the moment. Be Actually right here at this second in this podcast talking to me like what do you do to make sure that you're not drifting away thinking about something else? Jimmy distracted by something else. Like what does a tip that you do? A tip tip. I think just like subconsciously knowing like there's no guilt of doing this you know. I'm not missing out on anything else or missing. You know what I mean. You're not married that you're not Y- you feel like maybe you had something you're supposed to do because you need to work and like we'll awesome just like sometimes there's just nothing else to do. You know everything seems to be like a slow pace kind of different feel than it has in the past. But I don't know I just like saying this is like makes you realise what's important You know and it's like well this is important. This is what I'm GonNa do and you know whatever fuck off like did that make says but I feel like you and I have grown up together because we met when you were twenty one and I was twenty four and we went from like kids to saying we're like Mitch Yard adults but like we have really evolved together a lot. I feel like even like with our thinking like when we first were young. Both of us. I was a musician in the beginning We both just were like chasing dreams. Working hard hustling all the time going out constantly trying to meet people doing everything we could. And it's like the older. We've gotten the more we realized how what say. Yes to and what say no to you. Do you feel that way? Yeah absolutely I mean. I think what's the saying you know if it's not a hill yet no I love that. Yeah you know. I think that applies to a lot of thinks that applies to life in general. But let's get back to the sex talk. How much thanks to you think? Oh I was just. I was just kidding. You're out I don't know another loaded question. There's this loaded questions. I love this thing as connecting with the one. You love is very important and I think you know you should do that as often as you feel. Whatever whatever your your loins Taylor. Hey Caroline Hobby here. I discovered my new favorite subscription.

Free Shipping go to 'cause box right now I can tell you firsthand you're gonNA love it on the flip side of that. What do you want to tell people who are maybe in a hard spot? Maybe they are financially stressed. They're married. They have three kids now screaming at the House. They're having homeschool and they're having to work from home they like. What are you WanNa tell those kind of people who are kind of stress like? What would be some just encouragement about three kids? You know your brother has five G. I know. Yeah well yeah you know I. I'm always a glass half full kind of guy you know. I always look at kind of the positive ways in kind of try to maneuver that way towards what I'm trying to accomplish. I don't let that don't let that beat you down because if it beats you down at keeps you down. Oh that's good and in always look at it as okay. What's next? What can I do and know that that that the cloud will pass? You know. It's some point you know you can't really predict when that is but if you keep keep moving and keep doing it will it will. It will always comeback around this. Just how I believe. That's just how it works. There's highs and lows everything everybody knows that and Yeah if you know if it beats you down don't let it keep you doubt so. Don't pay attention to it. Just Kinda Kinda. Keep your eye on the prize. You know as far as three kids go or that shit. I don't know that. Sounds like craziness being cooped up with everybody for a long time but you also take take your time to take a break. You know. It's okay to say I need to carve out of time to have a little bit of me time to figure out where you can put that in. It's at the end of the night when the kids are asleep or whether it's in the morning before they get up or whether it's just time yes center. I think that's important. And then it's you know important to always take even if it's ten minutes to connect with your spouse your partner and even if you can't like we're joking around about sex and making love even if you don't have that in your timeframe right now like if it works then great but like yeah take a moment to find some time for your spouse or partner. It's always easy though. I mean like navigating life kids families jobs a pandemic like all sorts of other things wife can be rough but I agree. Like you have to figure out what you're going for and try to keep an eye on the prize so if you have hard pass celebrity hall pass he would be mine myself. You have one I do have one. Well I'm only married and committed to one woman so I I don't have what do you came back. And so no. No you like came back and did now do you love her. She's your favorite is great. But you know I don't know that's the one that always pops up for you. I mean she's significantly older than you. Jenner. You know. Oh you're young. You've switched really knew who else will yet. There's some more in there. I mean you're you're Paul has not my mind would be Leonardo DiCaprio. But I think that's because you look like him and he's trying to save the whole world more about personality and exactly adults eat. Have you seen his movies? All of them. So what will he do? We actually met our hall passes. What would you do if you met? Kate Beckons haunt. You like I love you. You're so hot I mean that's just would-be very flattering. You be very flattering situation. So you'd have to lightly decline absolutely. Yeah but I got a great story. That's right and the stories really I live is about stories that is true. You're a great storyteller. I don't know about all that but I don't even want to have this conversation. So what some of the best advice you've ever gotten okay and also let me reframe this. You've met a lot of your heroes like people that you've looked up to. You have gotten to have a conversation with Steven Tyler. You've toward with kid. Rock who I know you loved listening to his music growing up toward Darius Rucker. Who are you love shooting the blowfish like your cousins of the Black Crowes and hopefully I'll get to play your show them in June. Which WOULD BE AWESOME? But like what is it like? You've torture Jason Dean. I know you love his music. So many people like what is it like meeting people that you look up to and knowing them well because a lot of us have people that we put on a pedestal but we just keep them on a pedestal. We never meet them. We never know them. Was it like to know the people that you have admired since you were a child or just admire since you were young adult like. What does that feel like? What have you learned Originality is what I've learned from all these people They're all uniquely them and do what they do and and they stick to the common thread between it all is. They encourage you to be that. They don't want you to be them. They want you to be you and I think that's kind of the best advice to like. Get without even being said throughout the whole thing. Is it meiring in acknowledging that these people are uniquely themselves as artists songwriters you know an singers and players in in their unapologetic? But that's kind of scary to be unapologetic unapologetic. I feel like like you have made her balls unapologetic especially people who are like they look a kid rock. He rocks about all the time. But he's unapologetic about it yourself in genuine. And that's what makes you you and your your own kind of you know. In my opinion you your own brand and you stick to that in. That's what you should be. I mean that's what being an artist is all about is expressing yourself not expressing. Everyone else expressing yourself in guys like that that have had big careers and you know fortunate enough for me to tour with or know other people that we know. I mean. That's just Kinda what it comes down to. It's always be you be different. Why is it so hard to be different though is so hard to be you especially in the entertainment industry? There's all of these factors involved and sometimes it's hard to be yourself? I honestly well. I think there's a lot of factors that play into that of influence. In like what you want and like where you sacrifice and moves you make in the process of like being a successful artists you know in. You're always wanting to be more successful just like any other business you know but it's money there's always money involved. People spend a lot of money to to get out there. There's influence from the industry side. You know everyone has a piece of the Pie because you are brand will but I think what it comes down to just like being true to yourself and true to your brand in like true to what you want be in like navigating ways to to to progress that make it work in like B and. There's always an ebb and flow of of circumstances. That happened in opinion. And things you have to do but like like it's it's better to be the different. Make your own lane pave your own path. Make your own lane. And if that's what works for you that's that's that's what you should do or you know you know you can do other things but everybody's uniquely different and I think it's just that's just one thing that I've admired about the people that you named like they. They have their thing and their thing. Is You know you're replaceable? Is True to them. So sometimes it takes a wireless be fair but sometimes it takes a while and it can be discouraging like you guys are on your third major label deal. That is amazing. But like why a Lotta Times? People want to quit like say you get your first record deal and whatever happens so many things are at play. Nobody's fault nobody's wrong just fell apart. Now you're on your third one. That takes a lot of perseverance. What what are you? Why is perseverance so important because some people it seems like they get instant success or things happen so easy but really when you break it down and look inside of the Crystal Ball? No one really gets those things instant success. So why is perseverance and committing to your dream so important to you you know. I always say you don't take anything. Don't take business personal. There's so many factors involved in what you do and also don't let somebody else's opinion or situation. Stop you from doing what you're dreaming of what you want to accomplish. That's complete if you quit. Because they quit. Then you weren't fucking meant to be there in the first place and that's just one person. Yeah down the ones inside of your dream inside of your head. I mean if you yeah and there's like so many factors involved in that but you just got to see it for what it is and not take it personal in the navigate. You know. That's the way my mind works as far as that. Kinda stuff and like things aren't always gonNA be the way you want them to be so like but that doesn't mean you should sit on your hands and be an asshole. Plus you know you never know where things turn around comeback around and like you know wouldn't always say like when your name comes across. Somebody's desk you want them to have a good feeling you know not a here's Michael Holly Gross or whatever but whatever you just can't take this shit personally you got to see what it is and you got to think about your running. You're you're you're being an artist full-time and they're being whatever. They are a company fulltime. You know they're running a lot of more elements than you are and they're you know it's just it's that's the difference your in your creative mindset all the time and they're on their business mindset all the time and sometimes those two equations don't add up and then thrown egos which everybody has totally GonNa goes. Just the differences is how you use yours. So how'd you like to use your ego? Get Real honest women to use my ego. You're very aware of your ego. Like I feel like you're very intentional by your ego you have an ego for sure. Everybody has one. I have an ego for sure. But you're very intentional about not letting your ego flare up. You don't burn bridges. Something I have learned from. You is don't burn abridge like I. Before the my younger days in my twenties I would be a hot head. I would get upset. I would be dramatic. I would mean no one can believe this seem so. Why isn't profound all the time? But now just kidding ha but I worked on myself a lot. But you've taught me so much because in my younger years when we were dating in the beginning I was a firecracker and not in a good way like I would just get lit so fast get so mad so quickly if I felt like someone I like in my in whatever career working on the music career I would take things so personally I would get so hurt and offended and what I learned from. You always always always always and I don't know how you do this. Is You never ever burn a bridge? No matter somebody screws you. You always stay high. Stay above it other than you do. That I learned from me. I tried to do that now. I think the difference in like someone screws you. That's a very loose term. You know our associated like all my situations in life like no one's deliberately screwed me at Ler fucked me over like you know. People have done the best they could. In certain results didn't add up to their expectations. That doesn't mean they screwed me. You know like like I look at like getting like someone's screwing you being like. Will they fucked me behind my back and still some money or they did whatever they did like. That's like being screwed like would intentions are pure in things. Don't work out. That doesn't mean that someone fucked you over. It doesn't mean I mean maybe the wrong decisions were made. Everyone was trying to what everybody was trying their best. And you can't take that personal and then at the end of the day. Everybody always looks out like looks out at people like it was your fault or it was your fault or is your fault when really always try to look at things going. Okay what did I do wrong? I need to deliver better next time. Because if you deliver great then most things you know work out. But they're all that but it's it's it's a very creative thing because there's a gray area like creativity exactly there's no blueprint so you can say art can say something didn't work will ship. That's because I did X Y and Z and then you could go salsa go y did Z and they didn't make it work and they go fuck. It didn't work because I didn't and then people start getting mad each other and blaming. Don't take it personal be productive. Don't take just move past it. Keep going life and the thing is like you have stayed friends with all of these people that you've had very intense professional relationships with a lot of success with some of them and then some of them not success but like at the core of everything. It's always been successful because everyone always had good intentions and you're all trying to work together and I'm not just talking about record sales. I'm talking about everything in your life. You're just you're in charge of your destiny. You're in charge of your attitude. You're in charge of how you feel when you wake up. You're in charge of what you WANNA do. You're in charge of what you WANNA create and no one's going to do that for you and you can wake up pissed off everyday. Yeah what is that? GonNa do GonNa WanNa be around you and work with you and you you can partner up with people that help facilitate facilitate your dreams and goals and appreciate those people in is always. It's like a relationship you know you know when it's time to just say hey you know what? I want to see other people you know in and sometimes that works and sometimes you come right back. Who who who the fuck knows. There's no rhyme or reason to it. I just think it when it comes to that world you know any world like just. Don't let that discourage you don't let failure discourage you don't let disappointment discouraging happen because it's going to happen and you hope it happens more and more because it makes you greater and greater one. It's like a train track like there's all these different stops on a on a on a railroad. There's always stops and some of them. You stop in its despair. Some of them you stop. And it's anger some of them. You stop and it's feeling lost. Some you stop and it's euphoria and its success is abundance but you gotTA keep rolling down the train track and not every stop is going to be the same like you're gonna hit all the different peaks and valleys but that's life and I don't know why we got it in our heads that life was supposed to just be easy and without hardship like. Where did that thought ever come from? Why did we ever think that it should just be flawless? Because it's not nowhere in the world no recorded history of any great person of any great time if integrate it anything basically look up anything and there's never dismiss. Oh everything was perfect. Everything was great that never existed anywhere. So why do we think that it should? I don't know I've never thought that you never had. Why have you never thought that? Well it's you know it's like a prayer you know for me. It's like I think God for everything that I do have and everything I don't you always say that. Thank you for everything I have and everything else. What makes my journey? And that's something that I live by so I never you know if you wake expecting to be perfect. God bless you. I hope it is for you. But you're GONNA have problems or issues or get sick or do whatever I mean. It's just GonNa fuck and happen. It's just about how you look at it in what you try to do to progress in you. Don't let it beat you down. I mean at the end of the day. It's just we ain't getting out of here alive mass right. So let's roll. What's your what's your in goal like. What is your like. What a success to you when you think about your life say I mean? I'm not trying to say it's a morbid wave. When you get to the end of your life what do you hope you have accomplished not just like career stuff? Like what are you going for? What is your goal for your life like? What do you want your canvas? Your picture your stamp in history to be stamping history to be debuted. I told you I forced you to this. Podcast all the way down to the bottom of the well. How long phone call go to lifelock friend? You know. I mean this is like a question you can always just say that cliche things cliche cliche. Things are cliche for reasons but I think what it really means. Is You know living a happy life. You know like whether you don't want your your your death to be measured by the amount of success. You had I think it should measure about the impact you had but also you know in that shifts change as you grow like now we have a daughter so for me when I always feel happy and great and like that she you know when she looks at thinks about me. She thinks of in a positive way of like he was an incredible father. You know that's a win You know because that keeps spreading right you know you. He was an incredible husband that keeps spreading. You know and if you have another kid or if we had you know you want them to feel that way too and to keep spreading and then your career wise I mean Shit you you just want to have an impact but you also you know you wanna be a good provider for your family so at the end of the day when it comes to your time. I want a lot of people in a positive message you know and then again I just WanNa make sure that people that are close to me are taken care of in you know right now. Sunny goes man. He was an incredible father and friend. That's the win for me. All emotional a little bit. No outcry with you. I'll bet you would love. I love to cry. No like I told you day. Said they stop. I'm only pumping night once a day or once every other day which Michael so sweet. You'll listen to all my breast feeding pumping journey so lovingly supportive. But I told you that day. I'm like weaning up pumping us. I just cry and I don't have any reason why I don't know why and you're like okay. That's bull cool. Let me do you think I know you're so cool about it. Like I appreciate that about you because I thought on an emotional rabbit hole and you're just like cool. Have you didn't do anything wrong? Then like I know it ain't my fault so thank girl. That's the way I feel about it and I know you're going through a lot of emotional hormonal things. I mean you just had a child you know. We're not even a year into this. Like you breastfeed and you got a baby in your hormones and you know I know what the first nine months look like. You know. We're not even on the back nine finished with the back nine yet. So what did you learn about Hormuz unpredictable? I see I feel like I've been super consistent. And that's what people hormone Sakes Eve is a nice to me which I really appreciate new been incredible like I haven't luckily for me. I haven't had wild hormonal experience. I know a lot of people do a lot of our friends have and in dealt with that but I mean you've been an incredible hours crying every single day the first three months before you were pregnant every single day about stuff so. I'm just kind of moving together long time so I think I'm used to but you do an incredible job and you do an incredible job being aware and balancing things in in letting me know things. You're very good at communicating. Obviously which is why you have your podcast and you communicate so well. People have always had that gift and and I'm one of those guys that said you give me the day. She gave me the the things in. If I'm aware I'm good you know. Yeah you're cool with me having an emotional meltdown. If I need to have one if you know that it has nothing to do with you and that's my responsibility to tell you I mean if you look at me and say hey. I need to go cry. Then I'M GONNA go. We'll great I'll take over you. Go cry if that makes you feel better. It's like if I look. I need to just I need to take a walk and you you would go won't thank. You should take a while you know. I think that's what's important to to realize that and don't take it personal. You're not I mean I'm not worried about I mean you you cry and something. I did because I'm like well I know well. I think that's the key thing over the past ten years and we're GONNA wrap up soon because I know like I really appreciate you coming on the Poker Tournament. Poker tournament a really. I mean you know there's a game you look at your phone like you're ready to go. Okay minute okay stores. I was late last week. Okay I need to use a computer to this podcast coach. Okay let's wrap up anyway. I think the something really cool that has happened us after being together like eleven years basically now is we have stopped me. I still try to analyze everything and I always ask you about your feelings when you talk about everything up overall. I feel like we have come to a place where we just accept each other for who we are and we don't try to like me. I don't know for the most part. Don't try to change each other. I'm probably worse at trying to change you. Then you are. You're very accepting. I like all over the place but like we really are good at just being like this is you. This is me. We love each other. We're committed and we're building a life together so let's stop like pinpointing all the stupid little things that don't matter and like let's recognize that we love each other and we're showing up for each other every day and that to me is what marriages the show up for. Someone every day in loved them and choose them. That's a huge deal totally her first kid. Shit Yeah I kids Shit. We Australia kid all the time so we have to notify ourselves of the good things that each person does and then it goes back to another thing. I think but I think we owe it to each other to be honest and communicate like if I'm actually upset with you if you're upset with me you can't do this like beating around the Bush O. Rien ways like you need a straight up. Say I'm mad at you. Hit Me Straight ahead and we can figure it out. I'm not trying to old rag out early to create some weird. Let's talk about it if you got to get heated about it for a second that goes back to just not taking chip personal but deal with it confronted and don't be don't be an asshole and come around sideways and be mad at your partner when they can't read your mind. Tell them what you're feeling be productive. We're good at telling each other what we feel. I know you are the best. I love you things. Your count on ear appreciate you having me. Vote for Michael. He's like Baljit appreciate you. Have me thank you so much last thing you know? I leave every podcast. Leave your light poodle or what? Do you want everyone to know broad? There's no right answer. Some broad question Beats you down on what it keep you down? So what do you do? Said keep pushing men. Don't let it don't let it hang down there. Don't let it win.

Welcome to wednesday. Show morning studio morning. Glad you're all here. Heck glad i'm here where to start so in different parts of the country different parts of the world are different. Covid rules about when you can go out heck in the uk they they locked down again for a while because it got so bad. So here's a story. Quebec canada a four week. Long curfew has been implemented so in the day you go out and daytime do whatever but you have to stay in your homes from eight pm until five. Am it came bar business restaurant business and if you agree with it or not. That's not the point of the story. Just that's the rule there right. Well there are a few exceptions to the rule. Essential workers who need to travel. Obviously and if you need to walk your dog because animals have to go pee and poop right. One woman reportedly attempted to use the walking your dog part as an exemption for own benefit because according to the newspaper she was fine after being stopped on the street walking her boyfriend on a leash like way. They wanted to go for a walk so she just least a month and he's a dog and walk. They claim the woman told police. She was just out quote walking the dog of so. The article was shared on twitter. They went viral. One person wrote. Is this real life. This woman was issued. Find for walking her boyfriend on a leash after curfew. And i think it's funny dried is it is what's define it. Price shouldn't be over fifty bucks. We'll and how does he identify. Okay game i'm woke me back everybody. Our new favorite character on the show on employee of hebrew technology. It's a high tech company recently. Took social media to expose practice where they talked about. they have monitored seat cushions. Meaning these gifts from the company. We're supposed to help them. Stay healthy by monitoring their vitals advice but in the gift was a way for them to gather data on them breathing. Rate heart rate sitting posture If they're getting up and taking breaks for too long a jar knew the exact time she'd been away from her desk via the smart cushions. What they really were doing they were monitoring to see. Let's see when you get up. How many breaks you take. Wow remember we were talking about yesterday the day before about the bathroom break the company. There's a bathroom break. Otherwise you pay three dollars and so that's pretty sneak so when you get up get a heavy box. Put it on sarka housley. My point is. They didn't know they were being monitored they were told. Hey here's a gift for you. Wink have added to help you with your life but really it was just. I'm watching all these alexes our house. Hey this is a really cool way to keep up with the world. Wink wink as they. Watch your every move and here everything that we do. Glad you guys are here. Let's see this is voicemail number one from last night here you go. I have spanish class and we need to bring in drinks that are like spanish slash mexican. I just wanted like you guys to give me your input and tell me what i should take his. I've no idea. I feel like it'd be interesting here. What are the mike. Dis and razer sponsors. Also please against. I'm glad you called. Ray has no hispanic mexican spanish. He named himself raymundo. Because he's all you had like point. One of hispanic heritage spanish heritage on one of the dna tests like nothing he demanded we call them raymundo. And we do we do the weirdest thing. Eddie what would you recommend this kid. There's nothing more mexican than the margarita in my opinion but that you can do. Oh virgin i wouldn't take a margarita school who verge of so then. I don't know if is all over the country. But i know here nashville. It started and this was the thing back where i grew up dope oh chico which is sparkling water but it's from mexico. Gop chico stopped opo chico chico. te'o is what he's saying for chico stuff. But that's not hard. So you take pacheco with a little bit ally. And i really would add tequila and you would have ranch water but skip the killer a school and just do topa chico with lime my d i would say they're called hazardous. Which by the way this is the real answer. Is ed waldo in real life hispanic very very my ideas mcgill so and raymundo is ray them so when you get out of this whole thing is might go ahead. I'm sorry it's like a mexican soccer. You probably find him at walmart or like a mexican market and the really good. He has had this tomorrow. So that's why you're saying that. What are they called again. how did he does. And how do you spell that. J. a. r. like mexican fanta. Yeah also delicious raymond. I dunno guy. White guy. I would say. Go with a mexican coke and then mix that with rahm. Don't take in the school. Just take some iced tea or something like that. They'll get the point. It's pretty good. Mexican coke is different than a regular. And i have to give eddie some credit. I thought toshiko was originally made here for monterrey mexico. Hurry i was yeah. That's exactly 'cause i've been my dad's been drinking. This was a baby. I was always just like. What is that crap and now. I'm gonna do this so good. Good luck. caller. Joe is high school student at the fact. That ray gets lumped in spanish heritage is crazy. This is pretty cool yesterday after the show. Amy talk to tim. Mcgraw and tyler hubbard from florida georgia. Line avenue song called undivided. I'm gonna play the interview you did with them. And then we're gonna play this song right here here. You go on the bobby bones show now. Tim mcgraw in tyler hubbard. Hey tim tyler. I'm doing good We're excited to have y'all on 'cause you have a song together called undivided and tyler. I know you wrote this song in quarantine and you felt like the need. Put something out or you were inspired. I guess to put out. Some hope and positivity so just curious from both of you tyler. And tim like what is hope to you. I feel i feel like you know. Hope as relate to this song as well as And this time is is really all about love each other and finding hope in humanity and hoping our country and hope and Through love and then you know letting god lead us and got us and You know i personally find a lotta hoping that. And i hope that this message through this song i hope a lot of people can can find that as well so i hope for me going out. Children and my girls are gosh. They're thrown out of the house. Hope for me is probably the single most important thing that you can instill in a child's thought process imagination because it allows them to to dream about what they can achieve life and put it into action. I think without hope. It's it's a very dark place and And i always have hope for this country always from my family always have hope for people doing the right thing for our better angels. I love that now. The song is called divided. And it's going to be on. Tim's super deluxe here on earth. That's going to be out later this spring so we have that to look forward to. So how did y'all come together on. This song mean tyler you wrote at ten minutes on your album but who calls who who heard what do you call tax. Do you email. Do you go through management. Like what happened with y'all ordinarily tim and our buddies and and i'm fortunate enough to have a cell phone number so i just i just text and it's the last time i texted him pretty much right away. As soon as i finish up the demo on the buzz i was just So excited i just felt like man. This song It's like something. Kennedy's here and i you know. I didn't know where it was going to go from there to be honest and Tim hurt it liked. It takes me back call me. We ended up chat and You know we share the same passion for the song and decided listed this thing together and it's just a dream come true for me as a songwriter and artist and in this time in history. And then you get to do tim who i've looked up to my whole life. I'm i'm just I just extremely blown away and thankful when i got a text from tyler i was dry fading driving. We've done a cross country trip to montana. And we were on our way back from montana and my in our old cadillac escalades and I got a text from tired. i was driving. I looked out. I'll tell her a song. I waited till. I got home to call tyler but right away me and it was one of those things in the way i look at the song and i think the message for me for the survey. I'm grateful timer sentence and it's such a special message but for me. It allowed me likes man. I needed to hear that. It allows me to look in the mirror so you know what can i do. Sort of change my attitude which in turn can change children's attitude which turn can change their friends attitude when they go out into the world so it's sort of a concentric circles type song and i think it has to all star but looking in the mirror and i think that that's did to me and when it continues to be every time i singer here is you could have a bumper sticker with the lyric one of your songs.

The christmas her birthday and valentine's they're all within a month and a half. That's good so. I celebrate hard but then i'm all done. Yeah that's great. You're all like to lucky charms.

But the story is the steelers. Were knocked out the playoffs by the browns. They lost forty eight thirty seven. This past sunday and took the steelers fans are a die hard fan base. One of the most iheart fan bases one fan became very emotional after the loss. And this is when i started to not understand because a sad is i shut down on the opposite of what this guy did. He decided to take it out on his tv. Tv did nothing. A video shows the man crying smashing his television with a ladder from another room. Here is a highly bleeped cliff. Here you go. I don't have whatever that is inside of me to have that rage. You have to worry about someone like this. If other situations in life didn't go their way how do they react right. But in what's funny as the parallels that i have if things in my life don't go as i like four. If i get really sad. I react the same way as to when the arkansas razorbacks lose. I shut down regroup. Think gonna get back as quick as possible but anytime i. This is the kind of guy who probably reacts that same way when life hits them in the face to exactly in that. Scary lot of re tweets heck. I laughed at it. Do you think what does he be like after he sees it you know. Obviously he's not feeling it while he's going through it. That's just a raise. It takes over your body. I guess but afterwards he's got to be so embarrassed or proud of my team. Get out if if you met him late. Let's say you're a single guy. And he knew meet him later and you find out when you start dating and this video exists could be a red flag time. Is that a red flag. Yes the brightest of red. I think he could work through it. But i was a red flag for sure i get it guy. If arts lose the game. I destroyed for for a time period. You're not destroying thing. No but i don't have the rage even a basketball game. It ruins me for a while and we play two or three week to week. Mostly tonight you mean sorry. Okay i just never know if you're talking you're virtual video game or real life in your backyard or arkansas. There's a lot of those and i equally mad. All we have when it gets warmer. We're back to play basketball over here. I can't wait. that's good keeps trim. That was my only exercise for the the week of the month or whatever. So i enjoyed that. You selling your diet fish and vegetables. Yeah but now. I'm thinking should i work out on top of this. You will get bonus results. Yeah i don't know how the energy dude.

Five ounces of fish and a cup of vegetable for both lunch and dinner. And i'm thinking about doing chicken to at some point because this whole thing is getting old. He's he's making his own thing like he's the whole eglin matthew eight the egg white and matthew only had fish but now at he's like stomach couple things putting. This is expensive on fridays pizza. That's how it goes back to where i was will be eventually. Just start you still. I'm pretty angry like he's not eating enough. So he's upsets. Why why are you doing this to yourself. She understands though she understands by the way the creepy question. They asked me before we went on the middle east. I don't remember what this was. Hey bones what's his underwear and then then you told amy. Thank you and i are the same size. Yeah well whatever. You're going to tell me i figured i'd go one size up and then we'd be right now.

A selling for two million dollars the master's house or her mother and her father and stepmother were brutally acts to death in the nineteenth century as at the market for a little over two million now. Brave buyers have the unique opportunity to own a piece of history and inherit a successful bed and breakfast that said to be one of the most popular tourist attractions in new england Would you like to have now. Because the axing yeah. I just go sir anything there but i just i'm i live. What some psycho person is like. Oh i can't wait to repeat history here well. This happened in like the eighteen. It would've happened by now. Probably that person just hasn't done it yet. This is where my brain would think like. Someone's going to try to be a copycat at the same house. it's been two hundred and no one's done it. I'm telling you. I don't wanna live there. Would you live there. But its own it and use it as a bed and breakfast. Which is what it's being used for. Would you use the whole axe murderer as part of the bed recipe. Right we're lizzie. Borden deal you go chop them up actually. Been convicted though. How long is this. It's still a cold cold case. I'm not. I'm sure she has been Let's see ricky debates was offered to be the first comedian to perform in space. He could have been the first comic form standup in-space but fear got the best of him. He revealed details about special invitation. To go on a commercial spaceflight says quote. I was invited to one of these things where you go up into space for fifteen minutes. It was a group a billionaires. They offered me the chance to be the first comedian to do a standup show in space. Said he was scared to death. I wouldn't do really no way really right now. You would go to space I have no. He's all talk. I have no interest in being on top of a roof. Yeah let's face. I hate heights but like in space kind of like a an airplane. You just forget someone. You're sitting there you forget. You're on the air. Sometimes you just like in a tube like you're really. It didn't matter where you're you're just sitting in a room anyway away higher than we do in an airplane and i mean i guess eddie's point it is probably like the first time someone took a airplane flight but now it's just but the first time someone took an airplane flight there. The dangers were far more significant because there had been a ton of airplane flights to go well. If something wrong happens what we do right okay. I see that it's tastes. Yeah i'm out. I have the lizzie. Borden information here. Okay lizzie borden was arrested and tried for the axe murders. She was acquitted in eighteen ninety three and continued to live in fall river until her death in nineteen twenty seven. The case was never solved. How so she may have not done it. I don't think she did when i learned about this. I don't even. I've i don't know what this is. I remember thinking then. Don't think she did it. When did you learn about this and school. This part of your curriculum at school never heard about this. I thought when i just was going along within a minute ago like lizzie. We're talking about and then when you said eighteen hundreds i was like okay. I'm i'm never heard of it but okay. Maybe we did learn about it in school. Maybe you just didn't care that's probably exactly yet all right there you go. There's bobby's story. Let me talk to orissa in saint louis who was on the phone with us right now. A marisa how are you. Hi how are you guys doing. Good morning studio morin. Oh gosh that's awesome So i have a just a comic for eddie I've been a big listener for quite some time now. But i just wanted to say that i think eddie would be perfect to do a voice over for an animated movie. I would love that. Why eddie just because his voice is so I don't know. I feel like there's a lot of character in it and like everything he says always makes me laugh in. His lap is just so It just makes me laugh. You know it it. It really does eddie. Fan club here. Hey you know what. Like when i watch a lot of disney movies with my kids and i think that all the time like i would love to be one of these characters. How much fun would that be to be a voice character for animated movies. And you're really really good at impressions. Yeah yes so bone. How do i get into this lunch. Box had this whole thing years ago. I think he went to school classes. He took classes to be a voiceover. Okay director voice artist sues your big character forget his name and made them in squeaky squirrel squirrel. I forgot his name. And and it just never winning less. If you if squeaky the squirrel was deciding that today he was going to go out and pick up litter. What would he say. Oh you guys. It's a beautiful downsides. Squeaky here we gotta clean up. The neighborhood has got to take pride where you live and oh there's some trash over there. Let's go pick that up. You know what. I live in a garbage field city so pick up the nude or in your neighborhood. It's weird guy with the deepest voice goes for the highest voice character right. Yeah that's why it's called squeaky the squirrel because you don't expect it. You see this big burly squirrel but then he darts like there's not a big burly guy like mike tyson when mike tyson dot. He talked voice. I say but you wouldn't expect it. That's why it's a good character characters had to have surprises or you don't remember them. He took lesson. He did take lessons for a long time was that i tried to be the aflac duck. He did he say auditions they went to the head. Auditions and i went aflac. He didn't get a call back in and get a call back. I was so good at it. Eddie what kind of character would you like to do anything anything. But i would just be myself as you watch these movies and these actors there just being themselves because that's all that fish is ellen degeneres which by the way of always wanted to be an animated fish so if any roles pop up i know everybody wants to do the first one. You see what you did. They scream at each other talking politics over thanksgiving dinner. I sent that said okay. Thank you if you missed it earlier. It's not a big late. Breaking news story but lunchbox did not win the lottery last night so here today. This is him pleading with the gas station to help them win. Powerball yesterday. no powerballs tonight. I bought my tickets for tonight yesterday. And i went in because i buy them a day in advance at least so it has time to get in the system so the computer knows. These are going to be the winning tickets okay. So you didn't win the mega millions. So tonight is the powerball five hundred sixty million dollars and this. Is you at a gas station begging them. Let me like. I'm thinking about taking kids. College went to buy more tickets. Not a good idea to okay. Okay so don't do that. You're saying the money my wallet. I was well bob powerball. No no power play. Just powerball too steep. Just take the money and run. That's all i'm gonna do i. Can we say a prayer. Let's say please win. No nobody's losing streak heads or tails tails pick it up. I wouldn't pick up a tells penny about you know no way. So what's what does it mean when you don't take the powerball surprise or whatever you okay. So it's extra money to pay the power play where you get doubles your money. Triple your money. Whatever if it matches the ball. But i don't mess with the i just want the jackpot and that's it. I don't need to double triple quad. One amer definitely not okay. Here's one more clip here. You go man. I'm looking to get rich okay. You know what. I'm saying that powerball like would it be crazy to buy ten thousand tickets like i mean. Would you be able to print. That mean tickets.

That was going to ask Lunchbox if he wanted to moderate. If you've shared with you Amy and Eddie rose i mean like you sound like a smart new but that might be the dumbest question we've been asking the show ever there in a chance and gaas greener giving them any money. He's not greedy. I ain't doing him any chance. On god's green you sure your money with me. If i won a half a billion dollars i probably off something. We've worked together for a long time to mom in kind of like. Hey this is cool. I get to do this family members friends so this is the problem is where you get in trouble. You guys always warned me about people mooching off you when you win the lottery you three right. You're trying to move ross. Thank you here where. It's hard as i think you hear. Where his heart is. Ross he does. He's not going to. I know. I know where it's at but i i. I figured out that he's not greedy though. No oh yeah. Ross you really expect to share with these fools. They don't even play the lottery so they don't have a chance to win so they're just hoping i win so they get deep. Come on now all right there we go. We'll see if he's here tomorrow. Thank you ross.

The first dresses that me and other girl tried on or what we went with which is crazy. 'cause we tried on tons but the first ones we put on the ones that we went so we could have saved a lot of time. Yeah it's it's funny because you wanna be nice the ladies. They're working so you put it on and you know it's just awful right away but then you want to do the whole thing where you walk out and the dresses are big pin. You up because they just want it to make it easy for any sized than they do what they need to do to make it fit you and then you're i mean. Sometimes i was like this ugly thing i've ever seen but you kinda act like. Oh yeah. kate is also nice. She was like you look beautiful. And i'm like stalled which by the way we were talking about yesterday. Amy and her daughter. So shira are on caitlyn side of the wedding but we didn't mention your son is the ring bearer That because we give them a little sunglasses to wear. Yeah he's pretty pumped about those so he can walk down the aisle. They were nice sunglasses. I don't think he appreciated that. Oh no knew the difference. Oh no he did. He said that he was so worried about them. And he said well you keep them in your nightstand. He wouldn't put them in my door. He said they'll be safe here. These have to stay this way for the wedding so he he recognized. Don't worry finished kaylin. I went grocery shopping. We're going door. Nobody is right and so we kind of split up for a minute. Go you get this stuff. I will get this stuff. Well what all the stuff i got. Apparently was five year gets and we did on my instagram. You can see a video of the stuff that i got. And it's like she's like this. Looks like what a toddler would buy if you let them run free. What'd you get cereal. Yup pretty bevelled like weird super flavorful. Cheerio it's awesome. They got some drinks very fruity colored and virus booty and we go some and she was like. Hey this is great but you know look at this. You're looking at todd. Looks pretty funny. We put the video up on my instagram at bobby bones. If you wanna see that. Bobby got all the stuff that's like at about the full three to four foot level. The grocery store puts all that stuff. Because it's an a kids eye level and he's like oh. This is pretty. Let me get this. Did you right in the front of the car to push. It had to push And then i slept like crap last night. I don't know what this disaster. My dog starts barking at night. I always think someone's breaking in. The house. Kind of brings up some of that old stuff from when i was getting messed with a lot. I okay here you go. You're ready for this story. A guy in san francisco lost pout password to get into his digital bitcoin wallet so if you have bitcoin you just log in you can see what you have traded by it but he lost a password but his wallet is worth two hundred and thirty four million dollars after ten wrong guesses at the password. The drive will encrypt forever. There's not like somebody who has a password right call. Nobody want to call. He's already guessed wrong eight times. Oh my god right but like who. Can you call to get a few more options for password. No-one no-one yourself. Bitcoin i need to know who to call. It seems like it just is out there. I don't like it would be like if your money. If you had buried your money somewhere in a field you forget where and you only have. Ten uses up a shovel. You can't call anybody to go. Hey we're under the ground would you. I mean you can see. They can guess that part. I understand. i'm like who can you call to get some extra shovels. You can't that's crazy to me because that's your money. It's you can prove it's his and say. I forgot my password. Does it kind of thing where you can email yourself where it says. Hey what city did your parents meet in. Oh what color hacked. Oh my gosh phones. This needs to be livestreamed for his last. So how many out too. That's funny livestream. The last two tries. And everyone's like no that can't be people get paid like five bucks to watch it. Yeah you get your money a little bit of it. If you're about getting in on bitcoin your most valuable asset might be pen paper because you need to write down your password. Oh okay well. He just needs to wait. He needs to find the password. There's a guy named stefan thomas in san francisco. He has a digital wallet with seven thousand. Two bitcoins in it. Which means it's worth two hundred thirty four million dollars but the private keys. He needed to unlock his account or on an encrypted hard drive and he lost password that hard drive so he saved it somewhere but then can't even get in the way saved it. There's more as i mentioned. Get ten guesses before the hard drive permanently. Encrypts it's contents and can't be unlocked and he has already guessed eight times bones and you know the first wrong flew through. I'm like oh of course that to what he's like. I want more want to do. He probably tried that by. Jk awesome and find zero zero zero so he has two more shots and then if he does a hit it he loses it forever incense. Bitcoin is decentralized. There is no help me out with password. What does that mean. there's not a base a hub. Like if you lose your google password you message into google. Hey forgotten password helped me. There is no center. You either have them or you don't hear out of luck you set it up yourself. It would be like keys to evolve and you have the only keys. There's no one else you can't call somebody be like bring an extra set of keys up. You're the only one and what happens. That money just stays there forever. Oh this is awful. This is quote. I would just lay in bed and think about it. Then i would go to the computer with some new strategy and it wouldn't work and be desperately my. I'm curious to know what other money. Yes right yeah. Can we talk to him. Scuba scuba this will be the greatest game of all time. If could get stefan. Thomas san francisco people out there. He knows we've lived there and if he can't hit his password he loses. Oh my gosh. Two hundred and thirty four million dollars right like it's you some california investor dude that has millions and millions of dollars in. This is just like or is you need billions and billions for this to be a millions. There's nothing about this but mentally. You just have to start preparing yourself being a or you're going to lose your mind. That's what would worry me about. His last like he needs. People need to be surrounding him and making sure he's ok. Well you know they have these people that will buy your gambling tickets meaning. Let's say you have a you know what a parley is now sports so you bet four games all to hit and you win and you're so but if you hit three and there's one left say if you hit that one you're going to people buy that from five hundred bucks hoping that that it hits and they win the thousand maybe he could sell this two hundred and thirty four million for like five million to somebody and then goes help you with the password in if we open it i get a piece of it to get all of it. There are many ways. There's also a chance to. They may not get it even after they pay for it. We found the guy on. What is this. Site might biz journals. He has a crypto company. How embarrassing for him. In this company to have a crypto company. Thirty years old. Like you know over if he loses bones. Is there a chance that he waits it out until this. Bitcoin people figure out a way to recover passwords or like whatever you weights and other like fifteen years but who are the. Bitcoin don't know i don't even know what. Bitcoin is sean. Bitcoin started okay. This is so crazy scar expert years ago. I bought bitcoin. Okay years ago. And i haven't even looked at it and forever and i think spent four hundred dollars. Do you remember your password. Of course i keep say you're talking to mr organization here. I'm sure it has a certain number into that. We all know here. You go sixty amy. I spent four hundred dollars on bitcoin five years ago. You'll see how much you have. What four hundred dollars into don't don't say it out loud interesting so nothing for it to it. Went down a lot to its. Let's see that's the thing though is like you've done nothing. What is it nothing. So where do you get currency anyway. Just based on paper. I know this is just ring.

The core of Michael Caroline Hobby. Right now we have helium. Tyler are have rejoining us in this. podcast idea came about because Haley texts me. And you're like I think we should really talk about some real life stuff and I was like I think we should do and then of course like give me a tiny little nugget. Let's just do a podcast is like going dude immediately and share all the things and here here we are and we made it happen within like week I know brought about so. What inspired you to want to like talk about some real stuff? You know I think just with our girls uh-huh texts that we have going on it just so nice to have everyone to lean on and get advice and help share advice and just kind of circulate all all that all of our fears and excitements in victories in life and so like let's share that with other people but I think those are walk that we really like okay. We need to do this. We need to make this happen. So we're all like Mike are new parents. We have a seven week old. We've been two weeks behind. Can you guys with baby Luca. Now you'll have two kids. You have a two month old and almost. She is live two years old to and I think that's what encouraged us to join this. Mom's MOM's group are walk are walking group. Because we're all just like in the trenches trying to figure this out how to navigate marriage to navigate babies how to navigate careers and it's just overwhelming. Sometimes I mean marriage is a whole nother ballgame whence you put kids into the mix as we all know I mean just be good to gain knowledge and share knowledge in that department. So how have you guys navigator marriage starting with live with like eight. What was your love story like? When they had to draw meat was instant? And did you know right away that this is the one what tyler shares. y'All trying to make this short and sweet but we met through a mutual friend. Initially we were just kind of friends and we were hanging out and so much to the point where highly was on the set me up with her friends and I'm like Nah I ain't really feeling that way. anyways we we were hanging and one thing led the next and after a few months of kind of hanging out I was on the road at the time super-busy so we weren't hanging out a ton but Ended up. We had a one night at one of our friends houses and Those Dula I and I remember that day because that was the first night that Haley kissed me Haley Haley. Just you just play still debate to the story but that was kind of the night where we've other something here so we ended up hanging out quite a bit Shortly thereafter I. I think we both felt something special and kind of knew pretty quickly. You know this was leading somewhere and Hayley was moving to California a few weeks after for that and that was her plan she already had a roommate in a room setup and that was it. Yeah let me tell the story. They forgot that was when we were actually. That was supposed to move. Was the first thing that we can wrench in it. Yeah so yeah then I. I told her speaking time was you should pray about it. So that's what I tell her I don't I don't think you should move to California. I think you should to pray about it and I was kind of kid but at the same time I think she took me serious and actually thought about may not have really hadn't prayed about this so kind of went home and prayed about it. Ask for a son on and she was signing her Lease on her apartment at work in her boss came up to or behind her and told her that he would double her salary. She was staying Nashville so they really. Tom Pretty pretty obvious like that. You know thank God humor too so good deal so yeah right chained up quitting her job but just using that as a sign to stay in Nashville and you know we hung out a ton and show were there after. We were We were engaged and getting married six months later and it was it. Was You know I think we both need pretty quickly. It wasn't love at first sight. If you will bill but it was definitely you know love pretty quick and we some special so yeah. That's kind of that's kind of short version of our low store and Yeah that's pretty cool. I mean obviously it was something special because Y'all just had one kiss like you're saying Eva's has been a real good kiss. 'cause y'all really started dating yet. It's fresh fresh. Yeah it was fresh but like I said we were. We were so busy that In because she had just quit her job she was kind of in between jobs and I was selfishly. I like hey where you want to. Just come on the road with me and when I'm home can we just hang out all the time like we were together pretty much every day after that. So you are. You're not going on. We had just gotten a bus we were sort of past the really really roughing stage like the double. Washy probably wouldn't join me on the road but we were definitely we were sharing. Earn a buck for for a while. We also twelve dude on the bus so probably being there so you get to know each other quickly. You know I'd say six or eight months later. We moved in to the same house together and Just to save money need to be honest and then realize how amazing that was and Yeah ask her to marry me pretty soon. There after talked about raising kids at our farm and how amazing isn't that was going to be and then she told me about after we got married she didn't want to beat the Forbes so funny but it was all it was all for the better anyways now that we live in town it's really convenient. And we have the farmer getaway to and that's started in the country together and that's when I learned that men do not take hints. You have to communicate clearly to them because I told tyler when I was ready when I when it's moved to town that I'd been hinting for the last year and a half that the farm and he was like well. This is the first time I'm here and Kate Hints. So that's true at that that point. That was my my turning point and actually really communicating. What my needs are to him? That literally was like a moment for you. Mark Time Like I've got to speak up and say it directly what I feel. Yes because I just thought people under could read my mind because they do say send towns feeling but that was not the case. I mean obviously no one can read minds so I've worked on expressing my needs and was that something that does that. Come natural for you to express your needs or did you feel you had to like work on that. It's still something I have to work on be conscious about. I'm a two on any Graham Helper. Yes so you probably put your needs last and you see how you can help everyone else. I probably specially the ones you love the most. What are you on any room three? That's an achiever. Maybe seven seven which is the enthusiast four. which is the romantic? Okay so I think that's great. We all of your. We actually tried to play any again. Any game failed Rowley Guardian. Don't get that off for the birds instagram. So let's talk about that like how a your personalities Mesh because we'll talk about ours too because obviously I know I know ours. A WATT and but we'll share that but how does an achiever and helper go together. Socially especially a very busy lives in kids. How do you make that work and communicate? That's a good question for me. I've just been really focusing on and she helps me achieve overachiever pain. I don't know no actually You know I think they need. Graham is interesting because you know. I don't think it's it's the end all be all. I think it's a cool a cool way to help understand he's other personalities but I would say overall we're just a really attain and that's kind of been and are are saying since we got married as a team and we're But but it does help me understand you know qualities. What is about highly that that helped me communicate better with her and vice versa But overall I think I think we're just a team. This is a terrible answer but maybe next question so okay because I do think especially now at your marriage like when you've been married for a while having kids how do you feel like what. How do you feel like our team? Dynamic is your organizer organizer and Scheduler which I love. Default was the sheet Michael's like Sydney Day sheet of what I need to do for sunny today. I I work in that type of environment. I mean team was just being a good team. We just work well together and we move move while together new you let me be me and your flexible schedule. And you're not. You're not sentimental about things you know it's like you. You know a birthday like you celebrate it but early anniversary like you're really like well everyday's in your Valentine's Day is every day. Yeah like we. Can you know you're just laid back and cool like that. Which makes it easier on me? But that's just being with you and understanding like your love language is words of affirmation so and I sometimes I for my birthday. They are Christmas. I'm like you don't have to give me anything but please write a three page letter like thank. You didn't take some time. I want you to write out specific things that you love. It's not just your great at long long list a minute. That's all I want but I don't like a quick breezy card. I want like a thoughtful car where you have like specifically listed things that you love about me and noticed one day we need to get together and with a plan to write a song instead just right. We'll spend three hours and just write solid work to very specific specific song that is totally directed. Milwaukee uh a thousand percent than we could do that Out Daily plan okay. It's my it's her birthday. I'm you go get the card. I'm going to write the card. I don't want the car to have been planted by Assistant. I want to be caught up. You know well thought out and I do think that is the different. I don't know some men may be super sentimental. We first got married started dating like I would drive to where you were in. Put a card in your windshield with all these thoughts and you didn't even care like you didn't even go to Sweden but you could have cared less. I just thought it was sweet and you read it. Well it's really nice about me. I like quality time. Yes Over any of that yes all about quality time and I don't gifts gift like you don't have to give me gifts or anything but if you want to you unlike you want if you want to buy yourself because you're only like things your little things remains like getting picked up from the airport. Hey you know okay so tyler you said you are song yesterday about Haley. What inspired it in was the song about It's called invisible. Is this what you're dancing to live. which was the cutest thing ever? I'm Oh so cute. She made Monday. But it's just the concept except sometimes like you know I'll be in the spotlight a lot of times people forget that how viable and you we know for me. I just WanNa make sure I remind Haley on a regular basis like you're the real star in this situation like all I do is sing songs or go write songs or whatever but to me. You're like the you're you're the rock star in our relationship and and sometimes it gets overlooked and I do like just a good reminder. You know on the main to to make sure she knows that 'cause it's It's important and and everybody around me to know that too like I don't know just a big part of our dynamic and I would not do. I am anywhere close to who I am without highly around. So it's just kind of that the idea behind that a little a bit. What are some things you love? Most about Haley. The first thing I was really attracted to highly about was attracted to Hayley to it was her overall kind of aura. How she so relaxed and calm into that and just handles herself with grace like even where I might be all tied or like anxious or like you know not nervous really per se but I would just anytime I get wound up highly? And she's just so calm and just like nothing breath and faces are bothers her and she's soft spoken and it's just good energy so instantly like when I first met her I was like man. I love being around this girl. And she's just she balances me out really well oil and I learned so much from her So that's the first thing and then as I got to know whereas a lot of things that I love about her I love how she loves is people so much she is a genuine helper. She wants to help everybody with anything Even if they don't want to work on that a little little bit but she's just such a loving person was such a big heart and wants to help people and So yeah that's the first. The two things that come to mind is just and now having kids together washing her mom is like just fall more and more in love with her but initially that was the hour things that I really was attracted to was just kind of her overall own how she carries herself. I second that Haley you are the most host relaxed laid back person. I have ever met your so calm like the word I would use for you. Just calm and peaceful just just very peaceful in. Where does that come from? Thank you thank you guys and tearing up. Just let it out. We're hormonal. We can try anytime we all these emotions you know. I think deep down it stems from just this innate knowing that in that God's got everything under control and I would say that's probably the root of it Just like okay how. He's not really a big deal in the big scheme of things. Where did that faith in God so strong come from from such a young age? I don't know I just I don't know I the thing is just in me. Holy Spirit whatever you WANNA call it. That's awesome I don't know it just It's part of who I I and I guess I've just tried to kind of laugh things off and try not to make things such a big deal just interject a little bit. I will say some of your biggest influences influences are like from your mom Mama Kim as well. He's very I mean I would say your parents have a pretty calming or about them too. They're pretty relaxed taxed and they're pretty easy going and they kind of have a optimistic outlook on life and then probably her second her second second family I would say it is a lady named Kim. WHO's the same way? I look up to her so much. She's just so graceful and calm and uplifting and and Optimistic and just good people to be around and I think that's the has the have a pretty big influence on you and that's a choice. Do you make just talking about that this morning that you wake up some days and not everyone just feels super positive in happy every morning. It's definitely choice. You have to make him to be intentional about it every day. I'll say you do that better than for me than I. You have a natural tendency to get super emotional about stuff and I could fall down a rabbit hole of feelings like I could really really just like an just seek into my feelings. Live at the bottom of them. But you always find a way to spin it like you'll always spin it and you'll find in a positive way to do something and how how do you how do you do that it. What did you find that you know? I think it's like Haley said it's like wake up every day and you make a choice you know even when things aren't going your way or you know you're frustrated you just. There's a reason why you're frustrated. Is he just kind of. I always try to get to the source of that first and then easily overcome it and then you look. Gratitude is a huge thing. I mean if you look around you know you got a roof over your ahead get you now. We have a daughter so it's like there's a lot a good to focus on opposed to just a moment of frustration or emotion Russian. In my opinion. Like you've always been that way. Yeah I've always been a pretty positive person and never it's like as cliche is. The one door closes another one opens type thing. It's it really is true in those things happen for a reason and I think navigating those things is the most important way with a positive attitude. And you'll get your best results so I mean life's pretty good when you talk about this because I know this is like a new thing talking about lately and I'm just going to help you open this out you recently posted about your brother. Sure he passed away. And that's been a really really hard topic for you to talk about in the past and but you're wanting to talk about now and like view you view it in your viewing it in celebration. Yeah we always have. It's just share. You know I don't want to go into a room and be like hey guys will get to know me. It's just a part of my life. That is a painful portable but also a happy part of my life. You know everybody's suffered loss in some way you know how you cope with that deal without probably is why you know. I grew up there being positive because I was always positive in that situation because you had to be plus a kid you know I just wanted to play the money you know. Ride four wheelers. That was what we wanted to do. So we didn't look at it. You know I think what what hit me. Most this year about it is now I have a child and like looking get her and then finally feeling what my parents not feeling what they felt but I understand understanding a little bit more of like Holy Shit Shit like what did that do to them like. We were kids you know so. I think that's the timing wise. This year is why and it was twenty years ago. Tapie flew by the. That's where I felt the need to express it because people always go understand. I understand it's like you don't really because you've never been. You're right now that we have a child it it just kinda hit me a little harder. You understand more than you didn't before well you said now you understand more. Your parents are coming from what I can imagine. What their perspective perspective of what they felt you you know on a big level trying to keep a family together on top of all that you know? It's it's it's just a what a load to carry and a lot of people stay together and the grow do something like that in those couples and families. Just disperse. Yeah yeah so I finally understand stand both ways We have more forget like forgiveness and grace grace. Jeez yeah totally and everybody deals with things differently so not too bad. Try but you back off what you were saying. I think the having the heart of gratitude attitude I forget the phrase but basically is really impossible to be to be unhappy if you can maintain a steady Eddie gratitude. And that's not saying like always being happier all are never looking at life in a negative way but but we play the gratitude game which sounds really silly but a lot of times sounds like Hellebuyck. What are you grateful for in? So I'll have I'll have to think stuff which is not that hard but at times it's like why am I wanna feel this way like and then almost instantly the gratitude attitude brings you out of that and helps you get a perspective of like okay. I have a lot to be thankful for You know there's no there's no reason to to be pessimistic in this situation or whatever so we've tried to incorporate that even with like live and stuff like what are we grateful for just to start trying to you know. Plant does Dawson her mind and help her understand the power of being grateful. You know what I mean for for every little fine you know even live in general absolutely. So it's you know helps us shift our perspective a little bit from just being kind of like the second I start start thinking about something in a negative light. That's what I'm like. Okay that's my trigger any to think of what I'm grateful for visit so easy to go down that rabbit the whole thing even loss or something super heavy like there's always like silver lining. You know that you can kinda focus on on or situations to be grateful for and I know we've talked a little bit about that. But yeah just there live in general. I think there's a lot of power in the in the gratitude gratitude you know yes snapshot of your phone and you know it's just it works out how it's it's hard to do. Sometimes a lot of people don't do it you know if it's simple thanks. You know. There's always going to be a big house or a nicer car. More money or success awesome. Somebody's doing this and better than you or whatever. It may be all shapes and sizes. But he's focused on what you have like have gratitude towards it. I think naturally literally you'll be happy and those things grow too you know and I don't know what's going on. I would you great gratitude. Good thanks foods which when you're having something I've been really trying to use gratitude towards lowliest now that we have sunny like I have the ability to let a lot of fear creeps into my life like I could describe thing you 'cause I can just go to like these things. You terrible things that you hear that happen to your like people's children and it's like how do you not live in that fear you know so how how do not live in that fear of sorry either God thing total knowing that Oh you know he's in control and it's out of our control but I think it was a Brunette Brown book and she was saying you know every time you have start having those thoughts thoughts 'cause we all have those thoughts as parents like you think of that for riffing thing that could possibly happen and and even if that thing didn't air it did happen. Nothing's GonNa ever prepare you for that moment so don't worry about it you know that's true. And so that's where she says to shift to gratitude the Tude every time you're looking at your child and you have that that moment where you're like. Oh my gosh. What if this happened shifted to? I'm so grateful I've got this beautiful beautiful healthy child and my family and it kind of snaps you out of it because nothing will ever prepare you for that moment in what you were worried about. They probably would never even happen right. Irrational fears that. We all have natural though that is so such a good perspective in my sister told me that to Catherine said she was like every day she says everyday has to be a good day and then also like why miss out on on enjoying the moments that you have with people that you love the most your children because you're worrying about something that most likely will never happen Bendon out of your control road racer. Then you miss out on your life would people that you love because you're stressing out about something that will Louis. Yeah you're not in the moment and that's ego and that's trying to control and not giving up to God so I guess you just you have to give everything up to God all the time. But how do you stay in that place. The book before Agreements League with your word. They'll take anything personal no fear you're all faiths were. Don't think anything personal don't make assumptions in. There's one more for Sephora agreements if you apply that but at the same time we're all human and it's obviously difficult not to live and or at least have fears or you see your friend get through tragedy and think man how in the world would I get through that or whatever. The case is but at the same meantime I think it's being aware and having that mindset and no man today I feel fearful let me just let me remind myself and ask God to remind let me hey like I am not in control of my life. You know what I mean and right now he has made this beautiful beautiful kid or this beautiful marriage or whatever the case is is in. Let's just leaving this today and not worry about tomorrow so I think there's quite a few times in the Bible where it mentions. Don't worry about tomorrow for it. Has Enough words self or give us this day. Our daily bread like it talks about just worried about today. We can't change yesterday and we can't control tomorrow so like just worry about today and then hopefully would that awareness. It can help us all because I think as humans like especially in this culture life breath. It's pretty natural to worry is pretty natural to try to control the situations and you know so I think that's just a good reminder. I think we're all there mentally really so just yeah we just gotTa remind each other and be a support system for each other. Just know when we're having those fears to like you said is give it up to God. I know that sounds so like Sunday school answered but but it's true. You know so absolutely not okay so I have the very softball question Shen that I would like to see what y'all thought about me off your professor so we grew up having to like analyze all of our thoughts. Why I look at Sonny? Luca in live in their these thrash lives that have just come into to the world. There's still so close to heaven you know like they're closer to heaven. They are to Earth right now is like I look at. What are you know about the other side you know like and why? Why did you come here like I I think to myself? Like what is it that she is wanting to accomplish in her life or experience. Like 'cause I personally believe that like spirits we'll have spirits and souls and like were in this earth to experience something because then we're all going back to the other side to back to heaven back to God so it's like why I did she choose to come here like so. Why do you guys think we come to this earth like why are we living? Why do we not just all stay in? Pierre Positive Heaven. Why is it that we come to this earth experience that turned to tyler? uh-huh does that when the hard question. That's a good question. I think that's a difficult question but at the same time I think it's simple and as you know for what we believe in for our faith and what I've been learned lately is kind of going back to the one day at a time. Live a simple simple life and you know what our ultimate goal while I think as humans were all built in made no matter what you believe. We're here for connection and I think we're here to connect with the other. Humans and connect with God and the Bible says again to reverse the Bible says our number one the calling is to love God and love people and so actually think it's just as simple as that thing. Is You know to kind of sum it up. I I think it's just love people into love God and to connect and obviously there's a lot of layers under that and there's a lot of confusion Asian and a lot of you know the twenty twentieth century. I think there's a lot of fog. Ns around what are you know what our purposes and all this and that and I think we as humans is also we put we put we wrap a purpose around a career or a rapa purpose around a relationship when we wrap purpose around you know a dynamic with a family or anything like that and we say well. My purpose is to be a good dad. My purpose is to be a husband and my purpose is to be a song writer or artist and you have pets fry. But I don't think ultimately all this all that's just the fun activities along the way or you know. I think I still think all that kind of ordained signed by God and I think that we're that is part of our purpose but the ultimate purpose I think for us being on earth is especially as believers is to love God into love. Love your neighbor to show them the love of God so I don't know I think that's at least that's for me. That's that's where I kind of try to go back to try to get keep that perspective on a daily basis especially in our busy crazy life where we think so. Many things are important. This is important. GotTa take this meeting to write this song. Got Us on this artist. GotTa do this play. These shows better to Donna's like man. Let's not forget the big picture here like ultimately when we pass away when people are at our funeral talking bass what do we want them talking about. How will we love people in my opinion and not how many songs we wrote for how many shows we played or how much money we made? I think it's I think that can sometimes sometimes turn into turn you know distract us from the ultimate purpose totally. Yeah having that human experience is I agree with him. All that other stuff is just you just do and stuff you know yet. Being Nice to people love one another and give to one another and you know like I said it's like it all just kind of feeds itself and I get. I get reminded of that often. When like I'll just take time to go have coffee with someone one or maybe like help somebody out off like it's just like Oh this is Anita day-to-day and I'll actually go do that and I feel so fulfilled and so whole and so so that was the best stanhood today and maybe it didn't maybe it didn't pay me or maybe it didn't you know maybe I don't have anything to physically physically show for it but made my heart was full and I can tell? That's what my purpose for that day was and so I think just keeping that perspectives is important and yeah. I've just been reminded that often lately just through little experiences and things I've had it's just like okay like although I try the to strike this week. Probably constant strike right totally. Why do you think we have to go through painful experiences? Why does that? Why is that such a part of this human existence? Why do we have to fail? Why do we have to feel pain? Wise that essential for us as humans. And why is it. Inevitable won't be but that's the way this whole life has been designed of course five lead higher power to me when I do go through hard things things. It helps me have empathy for other people that are going through hard things and I find myself when I do need to be there for someone else. I refer back to to the time when I had a really difficult time and so empathy and the the But again I don't I don't know I don't you know it'd be Nice if God put us in a perfect world and there was no pain and there was no sadness and there was no but then again we'd be living in a row very robotic world. Wherever will what did you learn? I mean when you when you go through pain you go through hard times. You're always learning something and it's always a fake building for me. It's it's a lot about fake building. You know what I mean and actually having to Lean on God and trust him in no man we as humans can't even wrap our head around what gods do and like we can't even begin to fathom like his ultimate purpose and plan and I think I think it just creates a demand for Jesus to be honest you know the hard times in life and and the way that he can give us peace. When there's no reason reason to be peaceful or or you know what I'm saying? Give us a comfort in Tom's. If you know Thomson need or times of pain and you know for me me. I've experienced that in a few times in life. Were just like okay God like I know you're here I know you're with me. I can feel I can feel you comforting me giving me peace and letters that I I it just. It's hard to explain but it does feel like okay. I should be so upset right now and I am sad but like like when I lost my dad I feel like it was a moment where I kinda prayed right after our God like I need you right now like hardcore and I'm either going to go this way. I'm going to go that way and I really WANNA. It's usually when I really wanted to go this direction. So help me out and like I prayed that prayer almost instantly and I could truly feel like almost out just almost smile all about it and it lasted for a while and it was still a journey for sure especially like months after that you know of just the healing process and the grief and all that but I could just feel God with me and I think to go back and kind of talk about what Michael is saying earlier about being a parent right now. I feel like you can kind of get the perspective of our relationship with God because it says that everybody on Earth is a child a son a son or daughter of God and to be able to take that perspective now of Man. He'll do anything for me like he's gotten he wants to take care of me. He wants to protect me when when we fallen unheard our knees or whatever the case may be. He's going to be there to help us feel better. He's going to be there to to help heal. But if you didn't follow her knees he's you'd have no need for your dad so I feel like there's a big there's an underlying kind of I think God uses that to draw into him. You know what I'm saying. That also gives us more faith in it. Encourages us to have to rely on him 'cause sometimes I've been there a few times in life where you hit the bottom and you're like look I got nowhere else to go but but but a I mean like I'm GonNa Trust God here and see what happens. I hear I hear you. I hear he's a good father. I hear he's GonNa take care of us and all this stuff so I'm going to test it out ended up any does so the bottom is actually kind of a blessing. Sometimes yeah I do you know. I think it's a it's an eye opening experience for anybody and you. You realized man. I'm not in control. I need help which we all do. You know what I mean and I'm not invincible. All and I'm not as strong as I think I just all those things. It's very humbling. So whether it's you know I think that many different definitions hitting the bottom. But you know you lose your best friend or your dad or your brother or anybody. That's that feels pretty close to the bottom. I had over this. You know what I mean So anyway place. Yeah I think again. I think it's just part of God's purpose and plan to draw US closer to him. I totally agree with that. Think about the father perspective. Like man that's wild. I've been listening just share messages lightly this even like the simplest things like that reminds odds me okay like like as a parent. Now we know like we would never we will never let our kids go out in the cold without clothes on or yeah. If they're if they're doing something we would do anything for kids anything and I feel like to have that perspective and realize man. That's that's what God will do for us and probably even more you know what I mean like. He did do that for us. So it's like okay. Let me just try to wrap my head around this level of love that sometimes we forget about you know because it's not it's not a tangible earn always audible thing right in front of us you know what I mean like. Obviously we're there to wake up every morning and in God's not always done in our living room shake and has to wake up but at the same time Tom. In retrospect I feel like he can. Is You know so if you can have that mentality and know that that's the relationship that is designed between us as humans in Him as God. I feel like it just helps you stay in that mindset totally next about that enough rambling. Yeah so okay. I WanNa talk a little bit about marriage and parenthood did not interested to hear your perspective to how what has been the most eye opening thing that you have learned about your Mayo. Start with marriage. I forget into motherhood and fatherhood what has been the thing that has changed the most in in your marriage in our marriage since having a kid for the better and not worse because none of its worst but like things that you've realised. Oh Gosh I need to work on this and I didn't have to work on it before a child but then also what has been the most incredible happened since having a child within your marriage you know since having kids you do lose a little bit of that freedom but we get closer together at the same time and can you really have to work together and and you know we've hit points where we get to that that low point of like. Oh my gosh. I'm struggling and what do I need right now. Like I need you here. I don't know have you found that you had been being because you said like that lesson you learnt earlier marriages you had to learn how to voice what your needs were. Have you found that you needed needed to do that now. The mom totally. I think just being intentional about what my needs are and what I need. Because I can't expect Taylor to know what to do vice versa and I think being a mom. You just have extra little intuitions that maybe a dad doesn't naturally we have and that they want to help you know they're they're they're wanting to help they just don't know how and so when you guys too but it's different. It's a mother instinct for for knowing what they're needing when they're eating and to the point where boobs tingle when the milk comes in and we're like we need to feed the baby. Thank tangle every now and then so just just being intentional with our time together and our needs and communicating communicating is huge for us and when I stopped stop communicating and I can tell you can what happens. Oh my Gosh I get emotional. Like what's going on. Why am upset? I'm like Oh because I haven't communicated I'm feeling and at least you have wariness to realize that right so you know that now like when you start feeling can you catch yourself. You're like oh I need so then how do you communicate. Do like. Write down your thoughts. You'll have like a family meaning or do you like how does it. How do you take the time to get your needs out wherever ever? We can't let me wherever we can make time for it in our crazy schedule we say. Hey we gotta talk Now I do make time for that talk to you. Whenever you feel like it I feel like trying to fall asleep? You anywhere around bedtime stories or you're catching watching him like sleeping in the brand places sleep pretty good just about anywhere if I'm frustrated about something and he's passing out there. There is no way he's sleeping right now. I will say like I think with kids it. Just it. Requires you to be more intentional. Because there's so many more things are juggling so you know literally will end another sounds a little bit surface level but like for us our calendars or like a really useful tool for us to be intentional. Like if if we stay on our calendar will go check our calendars. If we don't have a date night on the books you know within a week or so that will put it on there and we're pretty good about something on the calendar or on our schedule we're going to we're going to do it. It's almost like our checklist you know and even if we have something that comes up that that we would like to do behind talked about yet we have a little system in place where it's like we'll put it on the counter so we both see it and we'll put a question mark because that means we gotta talk about it before we remove the question mark so that way she adults do something say Titan game on Sunday and she like. We're not going to the Titans Games. Like what did you say that question mark because we talked about it yet so let's discuss it down. Just a complete guys never really happened but yeah it'd be a motocross race or something but anyway so so like just little you know being intentional about seddon little things in place that worked for for each relationship I think is is key and nothing having the kids really makes it extra important. Because you're as you guys know like you can. You can just go weeks and weeks and just be so busy and feel like Manhattan had one second second to sit down with you and have any time. We hadn't made the time you know what I mean like let's payroll calendar. Let's go on a date night. Let's go on a picnic even with the kids but you know just whatever the need is it helps you. It helps you voice that and implement and make it happen. You know I'm trying into make time for myself talking with my therapist. And you've got to get out of the House for thirty minutes a day and just go do something for you and so I just go to starbucks and I start writing a journal and that's like my loan time and so I can feel full when I come back to the house. Certainly I feel like I got my time. I got filled up and I can be my best or try. Be My best for the family. And I'll let's touch on this and then I'll quit much but I will say balance is key like in our life in every week. I look at a week and I said all right to have a balanced week need to have meantime. I need to have us on. Need to have a whole family time. I need to have workdays songwriting days. I need to you know. There's a lot of things but I gotTa make sure I need to have my workout like all the things that make my week hole. According to how much time with God like one on one time God I need you know what I mean so interesting making sure you have it all. You know what I'm saying. And if each piece is twenty percent or so I mean I I can can probably put it all in the five or six categories the. Yeah I gotTa have all that to be a full week into be whole and do not fill out a balance so it Kinda just go look at the counter and we've got a date nights. Got My Wednesday morning. Jesus while government Tuesday Thursday workouts and my wife come on Monday Wednesday or Friday workouts. Boys got the you know two days of songwriting. In writing that eleven o'clock I got a couple of meetings. You know what I'm saying like just to make sure you're getting the and it's also I mean but then at the same time I wanNa have I wanna live a life. It creates freedom so we're not completely living by the schedule so sometimes will literally put in the calendar. A free day where it's like. Don't book anything we're going to. They were the wind blows his day in a mind blowing up the farm dirt bikes. I don't know it might blow Percy Warner Park on high like or we might just. It might rain. We might stay in the house all okay. So I think there's a beauty in that too and you create freedom and create spontaneity but scheduled it. Then you make sure that your balance balance because balance is bells. Yes I love that. How do you think our marriage has changed for the better? Or what have we struggled with James for the better refreshing to it. You know so. We're still it's just now we'll see if coming up for air let's popped up. That has been a strong accent that the other. Why do you feel like has been something that you've had to wrap your head around good in a hard as a new parent as a parent on on upping the hardest bounce selfishness? 'cause like we've been together a long time and the life that we live and think that it it definitely definitely caters to you being selfish and just all about you you know so. I think that's been an adjustment for me with her. Is You know finding that balance of like okay. I mean it kind of comes naturally because you want to be with them and you want you know it's thing but I mean watching you become a mother has been inspiring hiring because you just make it look easy you know thank you it in. That's cool what I'm because I'm really just there to help you know but you've cooked every single meal events events the Nice role. He's become the show Hobby House. You've really eight dance with great wealth You're putting it into food but that's thing if me cooking in you know doing all that helps you while you're feeding every three or four hours and you take the night shifts. I'll take the mornings you know it's like we have a balance of ecosystem that we've just gotten to the agreement worse so we're happy so you were able to get out of the House today for a few hours. Respond sat there this morning. And you know took care of her then and you're you know you're let me out of the House. Okay do tonight when we go to the bar together though is like we do everything together like you and I would always go everywhere together and now we don't think we're we're still adjusting that's going to change for me though is like I used to go anywhere all the time. Do everything constantly. And now it's like really like I have to find a babysitter or higher the night nurse to come which is a blessing that we have these people at our right. I mean you have to really prepare to leave that's so true you back to your calendar and scheduling just. You just got to think about your weeks or months a little bit you know ahead of time and because back in the day there's a beauty about being newly married or just freedom all the time and say man we gotta worry about by this week like Napa. Let's do we want to do that day. And it's it's a lot of fun but when the kids come along it just requires that if you WanNa have healthy you got to be on schedule. Some people subscribe to that some people do. But it's just like well that's I have to make that a priority now version of a little bit of time. You know it's not forever. Yeah I mean we did the thing where we were married for five years before we decided to have a kid we are together ten years we tin. Yeah but when we forever he was twenty one. That's why I'm twenty. Four am older too much fine. Everyone Oh lord got to the point where we're GONNA do now. It's time and I think that's important for people when they get married. I mean you do what you want to do. But I think it's important to have at that time in the beginning to yourself. You know because like you do things like either. Buy a house together. And your career combining all these things and there's an adjustment period because our lives have been used to being us junior mean ah learnt how to weather all sorts of like storms together before we had kids. So it's like and now even if things get really intense or hard or we're gonNA season like right in our very intense season with a newborn but it's like are we already know every single little nook and cranny of each other's personality how interact together so it's like almost I don't worry about surviving heart thanks to you because we've already survived so many hard things together. I will say something that popped up for me. I'll just speak struggle. That had him with the beginning was I felt like you could continue living your life as normal normal exactly as a the mom in like obviously breastfeeding every three hours in like someone has to be there with the baby all the time I felt like I will never leave this house again. I will never be able to get out of this house. You can just leave you know so that was something I had to learn Tau to help it. Did you know that it's not doing it on purpose. But what are you GONNA do. Sit there with this whole day while we yes tyler and like I just need you to be here with me and sit very well. The ten minutes is all you get and then I gotta move but it took me so long to realize that frustration like oh my gosh. He gets to continue his life he gets to go to work gets in the morning. I'm still recovering. Can't work out yet. I'm breastfeeding my body. Is Not what it was. My pants. Don't fit nothing. And so he tells US emotional emotional staff and and we were on tour in the middle of tour. That's true so you just jump right back into being on the road. Yeah and I'm like. Oh I miss being on the road I WANNA go on the tour and how do I get back to that. But it's like how do you write it. It does feel like oh my gosh. What am I ever going to get out but I I mean thank God for our texts that we have going on with the girls and as crucial to have an extra guy so the same having guy friends? You're new to urge dad. A support group of female going through the same things has been so important for me Forgot we do the same thing I mean I've been out to to your farm is like did I just need a needed. This like Haley and I like. We're not going to go to farm all day from morning tonight because we can't wait against like that that I like four to six weeks like a shift in the change and everybody's going through I mean we're going through changes to you and what are you. What was it? Change what and what made you well. It's like this. Is it like that. You're just you you have to have. Everybody has to have a grace period. I think if adjustment to like big live and things like marriage kids kids huge career. Things like it you gotta just. Nobody gets it just like that. I don't think that can be one thing that I that I felt in this Kinda alike just to change perspective a little bit like for us as dudes you have your wife. It's like for the most part you know Alad for highly. She live from it and it was like it was all about us like you said as soon as that baby comes. Mom is all about baby all of a sudden husband Kinda gets pushed society which is okay and that's expected but it definitely takes him adjustment. You know what I'm saying in this kind of art you gotTa have grace on that just like you gotTa have grace on us. That is true. I mean very much so you know kind of at least felt that way where it's like. Yeah like if I'm on tour with me and it's amazing I get to have my my wife with me all the time and you know we love that but as soon as becomes it's like all right babies number one now and so you kinda get and even to the point of like you know Halo would cook meals highly. Do things will all of a sudden. It's like that just takes kind of a back seat. You know what I mean the priorities shift and change and for dudes and we. We don't have enough time or energy to do. We don't expect. Yeah I mean I see it. I'm like you know props to all women who had a baby because it's just Jeez. I don't see how y'all do but at the same time like hobbies said there's an adjustment for you ask for us you know how do you that like that. I have kind of not well. We're leaving in the same bed right now. 'cause I sleep with Sonny's room on an mattress on the floor positively. TV's in that it is truly felt bad that we aren't as like intertwined as we have been the past ten in years of our marriage. You know what's interesting about. US without the other day in. I don't feel anything towards it because to me. It's just that's what it is and it's not GonNa last rush separate that yeah it doesn't it. It's not like I'm like what's going on with our marriage now. It just seems like since the baby's here it's over but fuck man you're raising a kid feeding it every four hours waking up good on you for sleeping in the room on a little Palette you know and doing matt from midnight to six. Am You know. That's but I think he's motherly. Serve Breakfast in the morning for that. It might be because I need to have more faith or whatever but like I. It's like I have. It's fear that makes me want to do that. I'm so worried about her all the time. 'cause she's my number we want you know read. That's very common with a woman in the first child but then you look at like some friends of ours or like my sister-in-law. She's got five. I've got five kids Christmas time. There she was born in April she was just like four weeks. Oh there's kids running around and I was just like where's the new baby and she just late on the floor and the Dan on a worry about it like if she's not gonNa Roll it's just think it all changes how's your. I'm sure it's different for you guys now with a second one in the first one and like you said it's just a chapter. It's just a phase you're going to get your life back that you're gonNA get your marriage. The dynamic that it was a lot more he'll go get my brain back the brains ever coming up is rare win and on. Yeah I forget what I'm saying. It's looked at home I left Michael is the baby. We're always I yesterday today. I was going to get my lashes done because they're trying to like you know. Keep some your girl and I left my go with the baby and I forgot my the phone and I was like oh no panicking. I was like what. If he can't hand something happens you have breakdown in need me. But then I'm like he's he's her dad he's GonNa be fine. You're only capable enjoy the time with. No I know but it is. It says a learning curve. You've been a great. This is Michael Seven. He's always like it's all good pretty good. I think say to and I think you are doing amazing and I think it's amazing to have friends in the same chapter. That's why it's so fun to hang out with like new parents who are trying to bounce it off you know and I will say like along. The same lines is like. I think there's a lot to be said about asking for help. And not being ashamed of that and I don't mean necessarily having a nanny per se thank you can if you have the financial ability to get any. That's is incredible but if you don't I still think you gotta use your resources in your friends and your family around you to give you those days where it's like. Hey guys like like for me inhalers. I go. We're taking two days and we're going on a trip like the babies are GonNa be fun. We'll leave him with somebody. Here's the milk. Here's the deal. Here's how we put them to bad like in just trump's gonna work because trusting. Yeah Trust is hard but I think that's another thing about having kids just. Yeah well yeah I mean you don't WanNa you you don't WanNa go on get a babysitter dot com and just let your baby stay with anybody but I think he your thing but even we're talking about the other day like there's so many of our friends that we love and all her friends of ours that maybe their kids are grown or whatever and I'd love to come over and watch the baby for a day or I'd love to accept their hope exactly. I really think that's you know I think that's important as parents as hard as it may be just leaning gene in on that a little bit with your with your friends and with your family You know our family doesn't live in town so it makes a little harder but I can. I can name five people right now. That would love love to come over in or we could literally drop live and Luca off at their house for two or three days I think and that would be cool with it and So I think that's that's also something to take into consideration as a new parent. It's not saying that it's not hard because I do think leaving. Your kids is especially first time and I think is a mom me personally. I feel I don't you know it's the mom guilt that everyone talks about. It's a real thing and teddy struggle that especially because we you know having any and you know I'll be downstairs in my office and I hear them having having fun upstairs and like oh I should be there or I hear them crying. And I'm like oh I should go do that and I mean I have to kind of make myself be like no. Oh Hey this is what I need to be doing later. It can be present with them But there's still struggle definite guilt that I'm just like oh my gosh I I should be there. I should be making those memories of them. I should take them to the park which we do. But you know and I can't be there for them all the time because then I can't be my best self but it's that constant struggle when I'm not with them I want to be with them and then when I'm with them you need to find time for you. Yeah so just finding that balance again. Just something we're learning. It's it is a real thing to learn. It's it's very very easy to like. Go hard one or the other way you know working moms to like. I have a ton of friends who had newborns and gone back to work and like having to have their their nanny fulltime care. You know it's like but they need to work and so it's just it's just you have to accept so much to the parent and I talked briefly about this on previous podcast my roommate's but like when we ended up choosing having a C. section like. That was a really hard thing thing for me to wrap my head around the beginning because I felt guilty. I'm so hormonal smitten. Cry that like I wasn't having natural labor bailing. No Way I can cry. The it actually is a real topic. Ring Hits a personal I. It's like I call my sister and she was like the faster you can Dan. Sorry busy the faster you can accept that parent is not perfect in like you gotta make a decision and stand by it. Am I know that like they're all fine decisions. You know everything is fine. There's not a wrong. There's not a right and just make your choice. Feel good about it and then don't go back and let the question and that is such a struggle for me to question myself. I in my previous life before child I could just question everything a million I could analyze everything. I think think I used the wrong thing. Worry so much like I should have done this or should not or like. Oh my gosh. This person's upset with me. Because I did this but like I know my heart is good I yeah no. I'm choosing the best I can and now as a parent you have to stand by that and you can't like question. It grew for like saying those things because a lot of times. We have such such negative self-talk. And for you to be saying I know I'm a good mom you know I can do. This is so huge. The mets ca self Taibbi huge. I've recently tapped into self talk. I didn't even know until like this. Year Michael Chandler Donald Michael Chandler enemy fighter sort of for instance. He always talks about self-talk and I didn't even know how bad myself talk was until I started checking in on it tells where the hardest ourselves in anybody. Yes allergist like riddle to myself. I am saying whatever you follow it with Don't follow it with negativity. Check yourself the mom guilt thing is weird to think from our culture and our society. I think it also changes like even with like breastfeeding verse pumping you know nanny versus. There's not having any like all the not working right. It's like man like just just do your best know that you're a great mom and don't don't compare your situations or listen to a cultures telling you because honestly in ten years coaches say the opposite anyways. It's like nowadays. Thanks leave your back before so many things that you could be guilty from refill that you know even you know. I'm obviously not a mom so I don't really know but I- I'll just say just from observing from announced such perspective is like it's real and it's just. It's kind of sad that our culture puts so much pressure on moms and so many expectations. And if you don't do this then you're bad well it's like you said there's not a writer overall of how many months she breastfeed or there's not a right or wrong on a lot of times I should do it in public or not your average natural so anyways autism encourage all moms to do and to have confidence in no. It's different for everybody. You know so then there is no wrong or right wrote it is hard. That's really hard to do that. But I've been trying to lately. My motto is just been kind of to to celebrate the little victories. Even if it's got out of bed and I brush my teeth got makeup on before the kids got up to a miracle. I did it out the door on time and the kids are dressed in those little things like yes we did it uh-huh so it's the little victories. That are actually the big victories. And I've been trying to really just encourage those instead of at the end of the day being like. What did I get done today in kind of being down to myself? It's like no we a lot because sometimes at the end of the day. I really can't tell you one thing I did besides just keep signing alive in theater and like you were there all day. I don't really have the time and wearing the sweatpants I wore last night to sleep like brush my hair or teeth and I'm like well. I'm just expose exhausted busy all day but yeah you have to be alive. That's a huge job. Yeah it and and so we don't give ourselves enough credit for those. Yeah well you guys really hit a lot of time. Oh ooh I like trump every podcast up with leave your light so just leave some inspiration of obviously they were this whole thing's inspiring. We're talking months bar things but like how do you want to inspire people to let some wisdom on people just to spread some light. Here's mine just that. Hit me right when you said that this kind of along the topics of what we're saying but I think whether you're parent whether you're not whether you're remarried whether you're not you know wherever phase alive. I think there's a I don't think we give ourselves enough grace. I really think that's that's important. Because like you said the self talk and all that stuff like you can be so hard on yourself so I think is just giving yourself grace a main if Jesus can be can give us so much we give it to ourselves. You know what I mean. Give cut ourselves some slack. Every now and then and don't be so hard on the self so there's a a little light negative for either I guess mine would be Just to I I guess we said this before. But just remember that God's in control and to just take that weight off of your shoulders so true and and just live your life and enjoy it and not be fearful. Because he's he's got us. That's so hard not to do so true so hard. It's yeah you just have to constantly remind yourself l. from that every day. It's this amen to that I guess mine will be comic said before this is my personal struggle. Is this owning my decisions. Like trusting myself and trusting my instincts. Socially now's a new mom like a half did house instincts so I would say like trust your intuition. Trust your instincts and know that if your hearts in the right place and you're doing your best then don't go back and over analyze it and beat yourself up just know that like you did the very best. She can do what you felt like you were led to do and then you have to let it go. They have to do you got this thing. I Tyler the grace thing. I think that's really important but you know one thing always try to do. Every day is say thankful for things that I don't have anything for Thanksgiving. Do you speak that out loud. You speak that all in and then find gratitude not at least once a day take a deep breath and find gratitude and something in. It'll change today but yet I'm always been a believer that you know your journeys it's not someone else's your you know what I mean your own your own path and plan so something doesn't happen for you don't mourn over it gets move onto the next thing but just just be thankful for everything that he puts in your life and got takes out of your life because that's the way it's supposed to be totally awesome good. Well I just want to say before we get finished here then we look up to you guys. Some guys are incredible parents and incredible friends and incredible people. And so just encourage you guys a little bit. We Love Y'all so much to you guys a lot and thank you for having us on your podcast at Y'all credible examples of all things. Thanks very inspiring.

Not so good but speaking to you guys is made my day. Oh you say all the right things. Melanie well first of all. I'm going to say something nice back to you because happy. Belated birthday is your birthday just a few days ago. How did you celebrate the big day considering that your in a fairly elevated kind of level of lockdown right now in england well we We are kind of in Yeah close to the highest lockdown. We've had so far. So the highlight of my day was going to the pharmacy. Socially distanced worry ask to get some necessities but you know it was just lovely to have that day. When you feel special you know. Melissa girl was nice to me for a whole day. Which is a gift in itself. And i got so many lippi messages from funds all over the world so many lovely gifts and cards so yeah. Although he wasn't the the date. I expect it to have. It was still a nice day and You recently released the music video for your latest single into you. The track is off the deluxe edition of your new self titled eighth album. And it's it's does dance banger is what it is. So why was this. Track the rate single for right now. Do you think let's thank you so much. I'm happy to him. Virtually blogger at always a good thing. But you know this records. I mean it's been crazy. Because i had so many plans for the record. Close i want you to make a downs. Inspired pop album been di jiang for few years so i really fallen back in love with dance music and i was so excited only to release it and released videos. Was he get out and to do it. Live and to travel all over the world. Of course auto is possible right now but i found that will leasing get during the pandemic has been really a good thing. I think people have enjoyed to be entertained and to be distracted from other things on. It's made me really motivated to create this content and as you say. This song is from deluxe version. It was never planned to be single but it was just an all the forums all over the social media platforms that funds wanted it. They loved it so we thought. Hey you know what. It's a gloomy january here in the uk and across europe. Let's get a donkey out there and put really fun video to go with it to be quite honest. When is it not gloomy in the uk in january. Melanie so i got some pictures today. I have family. My dad's been yorkshire. Which is in the in the north of the country and they have the most beautiful scenes winter scenes deep thick untouched snow and hebron linden. It's gray and white and you know so. Hopefully we get some snow. We might see some nice bright sunny days You you said that the album you know. Isn't i mean the the tracking to you isn't on this quote unquote standard version of the album. It's on the physical deluxe version but you can still purchase it off the new ep. That's on digital platform. So everyone listening. Don't get it now. I've read that you said the album is all about self acceptance Did you go into the making of the album kind of with that kind of mindset that intention or did the direction of the album kind of find its way to you as you were writing it you know. I think so often an album you can happen. You know personally for me. I might have a threat of an idea. But it's it really kind of evolves at its own pace. And i think i had some writing sessions and it was taking some shape and then wanting to spice goes. I'm we did. Stadium shows and twenty nineteen and that was a real moment for me a moment to really reflect on everything that happened to me not only in my career in my personal life all these different times. I'm not really when i. It was always like an epiphany realize that. I had to embrace everything that i've done. You know. i i kinda think. I had sporty in one part of my brain and my body and melanie c in nevada. I mean i realized that you know. I'm both all the time not want sometimes in the other other times so it was just a really nice thing to realize into just embrace every aspect of myself. Well and you know after that big tour. I'm sure you're sort of itching to get this melanie. C music out in front of fans to and obviously lockdown his sort of put that on the shelf for now. But are you hopeful that you'll be able to get back on stage. I know you have some twenty twenty. One date sat. Are you hopeful that you can get out there and be into these songs in front of fans Nine i mean things in europe right now especially uk. All you know pretty bad. There's no good news for us right now. So i'm keeping everything crossed. What constant monitoring the situation. And i hope and pray that happiness bring. I don't know if they will but as soon as we can. As soon as i can get back up there. I think you know all is to weaken everything grind so many industries. And you know have to think about things differently. Have there and i think you know for me. I'm going to continue to be creative. I found that it's it's a great time to to really be giving to fans you know. I think he's a time when we need each of that eight. Something we are living through the showed experience on. I wanna keep making music and get that. If i call be there in person i at least one a. b. that online and Also we were just speaking of the spice girls but twenty. Twenty one marks the twenty fifth anniversary of the uk release of the spice girls first single wannabe and the first album. Spice so you know. What can you tell us or any plans in the works to kind of memory. That big anniversary. Oh my goodness well we. Of course it's high on the agenda. I guess i mean since we did the tour in nine thousand nine hundred. I've just been like shadows maggio's and you know. Obviously that isn't something that's going to initiate a sadly so again. A big old we think on to the funds and incredible international fan base that have supported us throughout upgrades so we are working on tonight as i give too much away but definitely. This is the place to do it right. You know what we definitely want to celebrate and really acknowledge twenty five years. It's it's insane and We're so proud of like we do to celebrate in the best way that we can and if you're listening to fans than you should listen to keith. Because he's got he has an idea for you. So so just hear me out and i just play along So ever since the spice girls out that they had the twenty nineteen tour and Victoria wasn't gonna be part of it because she was focused on her other parts for career at the time which is fine I was thinking. Gosh it'd be great to get some new music from the spice girls. New music didn't happen and that's fine. Do what you want. that's cool but here's my idea. And i shared on social media. I don't know if anyone from management is seen it but here we go okay. So what about a new album from the spice girls. it can be called girl power. And let's there's ten songs. Maybe you convince victoria to show up on one of them and the rest of the nine songs can be say songs that are collaborations with women from you know women in music that inspired the spice girls and women that were inspired by the spice girls. So say you know little mix and spice girls or diana ross and the spice girls so there is my concepts. I'm not asking for any percentage. Any cut what do you think. I think that's an incredible idea. I oh wow i mean. That'd be amazing. I think you know we often talk. About how many people talk about listening to the spice going. You know i suppose. I'll funds evolving age. Now whether it will grow and you ought to sweater it do a leaker or even billie eilish is is so incredibly young which she talks about this vice goes beyond and adele. Of course he's brought about biggest funds and we've been inspired you know. I continued to be inspired by egypt artists. But like you say great. Diana ross madonna. You know. I think that's a wonderful idea. Come on. let's pitch it to the girls girls. If you're listening we will we mellon board. Apparently she just said that. No shooter down for this was actually in all seriousness. Has there been any talk at all of just doing new music in general or is that kind of on the back burner. Is that even a topic. You know what. I think when we talk about new music we feel very nervous because obviously we had such great success and we have such a great catalog and we wouldn't want to force anything and we wouldn't wanna do anything. That wasn't good enough so we've always said it. If an opportunity came up and we felt it was quite ogun. It about it happens then we would do it. But we kind of. don't want to force it gotcha. And finally because we've stolen a lot of your time speaking of Of groups and girl power keith. And i have played this little game before and we thought that it would be perfect for you. If you melanie. C could put together your dream girl group who would be in the group. We're just gonna take all limits off the table lake. Just pick from history pick from now from wherever who is where you drafting for your girl group and we and we literally do play this. By the way we play fantasy girl group lead. It'll i love that but there is such a wealth of amazing women in music. Isn't that so it's like this question. I used to this question but now to you. But i think it's gonna so slighted no one's gonna feel slighted if you don't pick them if you don't drop them when i wake up in the middle of the night going. No no no. I tried to have these guys but my my best pick would be tina turner. Yes and the reason for that. You know she. It's fast and my mom was a huge until i grew up on a lot of. It chatter tina's salad stuff and not just in. Or if she is and i think she obviously a huge inspiration to the great beyond. So could you have teen. And beyond saying the same. I mean that would just be overloaded with sensory overload. Who has would you want in that. I mean again. Seventy amazing women go see amazing you know. Would it be madonna. You see there is some women. I kind of show them in a kind of five. And i'm like i'm going to have to down being huge madonna fan. She was a huge inspiration to me growing up. So i'm gonna go tina. I'm going with you. Know the moment mature ladies right now tina madonna turks next next now soon who. I've always thought has so much girl. Power and i have so much respect for is pink and incredible artist on cheese being like. She's really play drama genres as well hasn't she she's quite our be and then she go quite lucky and and yet and she's really powerful so i think pink would have to be masked to me and then she makes some youngsters in that as well into the mix so do is having a moment right now an incredible album that she released last year. And i'm a huge fan of has. Maybe i think. I'd like to see duly pin and I'm gonna change my mind. Doing down i mix it all up. And i do. I have one spotlight. Sure as many as you want it can be a ten you to be able to look. I think you know what i wanna. I wanna bring some maybe some darkness the proceedings. And i think we're going to have to have many many eilly one of my favorites. I mean it's the craziest mix if women you probably would get on stage. Music and generalize but there are people that inspire me greatly love to see it. So tina madonna to billie eilish. Yeah that's an malady. Like your goes without saying. I don't want to miss. I can only imagine just trying to get everyone on stage together. That will be something. That's a site. What's up by the way katy and i are big fans of basically all those people those people. Yeah so we're in it and and you of course to melania on this has been delightful thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us and Much success with anything that possibly happens in twenty twenty one. Because we don't know what the heck is going to happen this but all of my love and good luck to you guys over there. You know heartbreaking crazy scenes. We see in america lots and i miss you guys and love to be over there so hopefully we can be together. See again to melanie. C cannot wait to see that fantasy group live. If only in our dreams as real as it can be in my during it makes it sound like we're saying that The gives them with an debbie. Gibson was not a selection. A fine choice nonetheless. She'd be in gary trough fantasy zero group for sure. Tiffany harry And also thank you melanie for during my unsolicited pitch for a spice girls album. I still think it's legitimately good idea. Melanie seemed into it. So all we have to do is convince the other girls and then we've got it covered. I mean for all you know. They already recorded it true. You never know you never know all right. Well now. It's time for the chart stat of the week. Well twenty four years ago this week. The spice girls debuted on the billboard. Hot one hundred chart with the track. Which first released. In the group's home country of england. The previous year arrived on the hot one. Hundred chart dated january. Twenty fifth nineteen ninety-seven number. Eleven it would sail to number one a few weeks later on the february twenty-second data chart and it's been four weeks atop the list. This was normal by the way back in the day were an artist would release a song or album in another country. I and in america this was like pre internet we have internet but it was like pre pre streaming pre youtube so the spice girls were just like this. Uk thing it became a phenomenon and then they brought them to america and it became a global phenomenon and this ties into something else. That happened the other day. When adele on social media celebrated the tenth anniversary of the release of her album twenty one it was actually released in the uk like a month or so. It was a month actors february twenty-second as the day here in the us. Yeah it it didn't come out in the in america until until a month later so it's the ten to her but for americans we still denied it for a. It's the it's the nine year and eleven month anniversary you can't really pull that off anymore streaming and everything else works much all right. We'll move in on wanna be was a preview of even bigger things to come for the spice girls as the group would reach number one on the billboard two hundred with its debut album spice in may spending five weeks at number one and was not two more top ten hits from the set with say. You'll be there and two become one. And before the end of nineteen ninety-seven the group would drop their second album. Spice world assuring in another batch of hit singles wannabe finished nineteen ninety-seven as the number ten biggest hit on the hot one hundred chart while spice closed the year as the number one year end billboard two hundred album so there you have it twenty four years ago this week. The spice girls spiced up the hot one hundred for the very first time as wannabe debuted on the chart on its way to number one. We've reached the end of our spicy show. How many times can we say spicy. I honestly don't know if i remember a bigger like pop cultural phenomenon than the way the spice girls in america like in my lifetime i should i. It was honestly like it. Felt like they came out of nowhere and were massive immediately. It was it was unreal. It was i all. I remember that year it was just pandemonium for the spice girls videos were on. Mtv and one incessantly say you'll be. There is the one that i remember the most playing. I mean because it was such a fine cinematic superhero looking video. That one is the one. I remember playing over and over and over again on. Mtv so what song should we go out on. I mean. I don't think it would be overkill to play another spice girls song personally. So that's what we should do. But which song. Because we've already obviously right. I mean i'd say you'll be there. We talked about it that video. It's playing in my mind just thinking about the spice girls arrival all right. We're going to give you everything as we go out this week. You know giving everything all this. I swear this is where all right time by.

We broke the news and then our instagram took our photo town for copyright violation. Is it the one of harry styles and olivia munn holding hands. Olivia munn no via wild. Same person but speaking of olivia munn before retirement. Hear like a crazy piece of gossip. That detroit have found. I don't know if it's one hundred percents. Libya man who that is right now. I think i may have people confused. Okay so olivia munn is the dark haired actress. She dated aaron rodgers. That's how you would know her forever. They dated. i'll show you a picture. I don't know if she's sort of like olivia. Culpo kind of yeah. This is her but confusingly. Really look like olivia culpo. This is a lithium on. She's an. I have never seen that woman before in my life. She aaron rodgers for like eight years. I can't believe you don't know that way. I swear on my life. I've never seen that women before the piece of that. I haven't me but because the toasters will care people think that she spent christmas and might be dating. And kelly. Whose casey musk's ex husband don. Wow the one with the long hair no fat. A tall guy short hair. Whatever for those who care. Olivia munn is rumored to have spent the holiday season with and kelly. Who's obviously casey musk's has been. Which would be kinda cute on pairing an obvious that rusting kelly has like a very specific type. But then back to you. I know his first name was arrested. Yes caesar country singer her. Okay so now it's you know who be a wildest. Yes it'd be wild. But i don't know but i know exactly who she is Let me just show you a picture. I just don't insult me. I just want you to be like yes. I know who she is. So in like the most range news ever olympia wild and harry styles were seen holding hands as a source says quote. They updated for a few weeks. A hot new couple may be kicking off twenty twenty one in style. Lame article written by people. Li wild and harry styles were seen holding hands at a friend's wedding over the weekend. Sparking dating rumors the pair. Who recently excuse me work together on the film. Don't worry darling which style stars in and directed did you just clear throat. Said they were in montecito california this weekend for a wedding source tells people they were affectionate around their friends held hands and looked very happy. They have dated for a few weeks so the photos kind of took the internet by storm. They're walking hand in hand. And i when i saw the pictures harry styles a gentleman throughout a wedding outside munn. You got me fucking confused now. Olivia wilde is like in heels. He's holding her hand helping her get from point a to point b and his people were like overreacting at the photos because she just got out of an eight year relationship with jason today kosei of two kids like it was kind of like a big break up but then all these reports came out like pretty much solidified dating. So here we are. What are your thoughts. Please speak into the microphone. I know there were not supposed to ask how all the women is. can you. At least tell me the age gap between the two. Would you ask that question if it was a man who was older. I wouldn't would you expect piece of shit. Eyestone under the age why i wanted to go. It's irrelevant it's not a relevant relevant. I would like to know that age gap. He's twenty six. she's thirty six. It's really not that big of a just simply curious. I think chauvinistic motherfucker. I think that it's all oppressed ploy for the movie. Yeah people know when they're being photographed and when they're being filmed. It's not like if you go to a wedding and the wedding says no phones. Whatever you hold hands you smooth you do whatever you want. They knew they were being watched without question. And now all of a sudden what are we talking about not heard this fucking movie before. I didn't know that they were in a movie together. All the we're here in movie movie movie movie is it. A part of the movie is not a part of the movie. Is that the movie or the in the movie together. L. ed. That's a definite. I like that. Take idea when that's something we talk about here a lot of the morning. I do think that both harry styles and libya wild or two famous and to like a list to entertain something like that but it's very possible. I think it's very possible but another thing is this wedding was a twenty person wedding. Obviously because of kobe springs. And the person who's wedding. It was is harry's manager so he's like not a famous person. He's like a hollywood industry guy so i don't know if they would have thought per se that there would be paparazzi there. I think actually of all the places they've gone. I assume that a twenty person wedding at someone's house in the middle of a pandemic when the bride and groom are not famous. Actually could be a safe space for you to hold hands in public. I do think that it's possible. I don't know. I don't by the way no but now they're like people sources i mean of course sources could be bullshit but there are people saying he's met her kids. They've been basically living together. This is definitely a relationship All right well then. I wish them well let me do is the case i mean obviously no offense to you or to libya wild. That should be me but it's fine Interesting not to interrupt. I do have another a bit of a press. Ploy that i thought of okay. You have another theory and other nope. It's not about harry and i do think that you'll find it interesting in that. The toasters will find it interesting about our. Maybe the six. Let's hit about twisted tea was about this. Oh the face ready for this we. Can you just give me a background. What is twisted tea. It's like mike's hard lemonade. Okay and i saw this video. That went viral guy in a gas station getting knocked out with a bottle of twist to do before that. I don't know if you noticed all over the medium world people were just posting just adds to t but they weren't hash tagging. They were just like putting little twisted legs on people didn't see that okay. It was ever against fcc regulations and all the other accounts all of them just twisty twisty twisty and everybody's like what. The fuck is up with twisted tea all the sudden you here man beaten with a twisted tea. It was a terrible video. Yeah not man beaten with a drink not man beaten so what. He's trying to say. I'm trying to say that. That was a press ploy and that the video was fake. No way have you heard of an article man beaten with diet coke. No you say man beaten over the head with a can the only reason why you'd include the brand name if you wanted to go viral. And that is the smoking gun you think that this viral video. That's coming on the legs of twisted tea. Doing all the social media marketing. Yeah you think that this video is now. A part of some sort of marketing. I can't imagine any brand wanting to be part of it was horrendous. It really scared me. Great and now you know what to a city is one hundred percent. I never heard of it before. That's very random tangent for you to go on but appreciative nonetheless. Sorry just thought everybody would find it interesting interesting and just we. We hear the morning toast or wishing olympia styles. I mean that name be wild. And harry styles the best. Yes which people name delivery are just so lucky to greet name. It's a great name. Jackie and i were talking about. How like a. Jackie always says like she's never met a person named olivia who wasn't fabulous and elegant and now a libya wild is proving that theory because she landed harry styles and if your name is libya there's a song by one direction about you live for you along for you livia. Hey hey and then. There's also john mayer song. I'm thinking something lag. Libya could get me through the night and literally. No one's ever written a song about cloudy. The closest i have is calling lory younger. I used to be like galati. Done data you're always on the run. Cloudy is there a song about ben. no bannon's a great name but not as good as libya. The reason why. I think it's such a great name. If you wanna be that serious person yes if you want to just be like cool live even if you want to be like livy leear is libby livia no libya. I think a lisbeth. Yeah it's like a nickname for elizabeth. Or like lillian. Okay so we have livy live livia. Yeah an olive potentially nobody. Nobody calls him. That's entirely different name. Moving on to our second story of the day which is some at first seems like heart breaking news. But i think it's gonna be okay. We'll see according to billboard florida georgia. Line's tyler hubbard and brian. Kelly announced plans to release solo music but the dual promises fans that they aren't breaking up. The two went on their florida georgia line instagram account and did like a nine minute video. That i'm not gonna lie like so boring. I did only watch half of it. But essentially they announced that they haven't joined album coming out in february but they are starting to line up releasing their own music but the duo is not going to split up according to billboard and the nearly ten minute video call that the country duo shared on their social media over the weekend. Kelly explained how the ongoing pandemic gave him a lot of extra time at home for soul searching and a nice break from songwriting before he got back into the swing of things he said meaning. We've had conversations three or four years ago and this is kind of been a lifelong dream of mine but it kind of felt like i started writing an album. Once i started writing again in august and had a couple of songs that i started that i just felt like maybe i'm supposed to sing. These probably have a project an outlet for these to come out on. We talked about that before and just the timing wasn't right. All the dots weren't really connected. Everything was in the mine. So essentially. If you know the florida georgia line dynamic. There's two guys one of them is very them to a fan. One of them is named brian. Kelly which is so funny really. Yeah and the others. Tyler hubbard and tyler really sings ninety nine percent but brian writes all. The songs produces all the music. So it's like a perfect partnership but i guess. Brian has been reading music that like he wants to perform. And he's been holding onto this music for a while and now he feels like it's a good time to release his solo music. They are assuring everyone. They're not splitting up but i believe them. I really would if not for two things history. It has proven itself. I mean remember one direction which just going on a hiatus like history that has not been kind to to these types of situations. So i don't wanna be negative but i just have to know what the president says. The second thing is that we in the last month. I've actually been talking about. We're feeling like florida. Georgia could potentially be breaking up because it was like a little drama like the wives on followed them on. Instagram was family drama. And we never got to the bottom of why or how but now this seems like another you know thing in the story line and i just think it's interesting and i don't want to be pessimistic. They say not breaking up. I will believe them but i just have to be. I'd have to think of everything you know. yeah. I don't know. I really liked them at one point i just have. They released any like new good country. Music like yes all the time. Are you sure. I mean you just say that. You don't even check like why. Because i didn't play it enough time in the house for you to memorize it. And i'm just saying like ever since holy. They've gone way down. I mean holy. Was the best song ever you. Who who memorably. When only one whenever ben wants to like practices singing talent. You're very talented. He sings song holy. So that's like his song. Obviously hold a special place in your heart. So i would think you would have some more to say about this news. You won't give me one course now. I'm course people already complaining that we too much on the podcast and clearly. I'm really the only one who is allowed to do. Well but can you give me some of your thoughts on this news. Yeah look i think that. They're very talented. Duo i think though that maybe they they opened a bar right f. House is called and they said they were thinking of opening another. Yeah they started doing pop songs. The didn't they do stuff with bieber. Am i wrong about that. You're wrong about that. That was that they would with bb with our country song but but the win a little common to be. Yeah it's okay that's by. That was really the number one song of two thousand nine hundred. They did their own thing and they got really famous open. Bars started going into pop. It only makes go into their turning into businessmen and they're taking a back seat and they're recording in their spare time by themselves you know. Keep the cash coming in. I mean they are. They are so wealthy. They turned their their fame with like holy in cruise. They literally turn those two songs into a multibillion dollar an holies in amazing so incredible they don't need to release any more. Oh i disagree. I hear what you're saying. But he's still haven't given me a full. Do you think they're breaking up or not. It's very simple question. I think that they are breaking up. I think that you said that. There's some drama about the wives on instagram. if there's drama can't be good can't be. God can't be good. I think that they are breaking up. I think that they'll always remain friends though. Always ring close. Maybe call each other on the holidays. I think that it for now. they're done. Okay thank you for finally kaput. Oh that's so sad. I'm devastated even though. I just want to put it out like i did. Call it but not to make this about me next story page six is saying stone is pregnant expecting her. First child with husband dave mccarey. You know emma stone is right yeah. Didn't they just get engaged. Wow you're really Keeping up with emma stone by the way is she in love celebrity crush. She's just great big fan.

And i would just absolutely love to get your take on it. What's his last name. Before we get into this mcnary or mccarey mccarron. I was just thinking of what the baby's name could be do. We know if it's a boy or a girl. Did you read the articles. I didn't know we don't know interesting. All right next up please. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on this from the cut. Influencers are feuding after both naming their babies baby. What baby baby. Let me allow me. Alleged friends and confirmed instagram personalities. Jessica heart and sasha benz who have reportedly been warring over. Whose baby is baby. So the first thing. I notice is that this. This article refers to jessica heart as a influencer which is so disrespectful considering. How like full-blown supermodel. And what. I know her best. Four is being in. The victoria's secret fashion show the year. That taylor swift was performing and she spoke to the press. Taylor doesn't really fit in with these girls and taylor swift. Got her fired and she never worked for victoria secret ever again. But she's still is a bona fide. Supermodel so i just think new york magazine referring to rise influencers like really fucking road but okay allegedly hart. Who's a supermodel. Recently named her newborn daughter baby news that came as an affront to sasha benz who named her daughter baby be a y three years ago she was allegedly devastated by this seeming theft of intellectual property benz stopped speaking to jessica heart for a time. Baby verse baby. Sasha benz baby baby. Why baby from jessica. Hard is be a y. B. i jessica. Hard is an australian model and the founder of luma beauty sasha benz the owner of the montauk new york based shops wild blue and wild black and the founder of a blog called all. My friends are models. Okay so she is an influence her. I just wanted to put that out there. Whose baby was baby i. Sasha benz spelled b. a. b. y. Okay and then and she's friends with. I'm sorry. I'm sorry i'm sorry. Sasha abedin's was first but hers is b. a. y. bi baby bay book. Okay interesting so i like. Her kid has already three years old named baby good. I don't want to speak ill of anybody's child child. So don't. I'm happy that we are all named baby. Yeah that being said. Sasha benz be a y. That's like a nice. It's it's baby but it's it's creative. I agree this australian lady. Yeah b. a. b. y. That's like naming. you're my name being man or like your name being like foot. It's so dumb. You know again not to be mean a. b. a. y. b. That's a creative spin on my actually completely free you can call them bay at bb. There's something there i actually think. It's a very cool niche goal. I completely and mike can also put like that like it's funny. It's ironic that be a b. y. Is not be a y b. i because of how it's a little the little baby you know. i agree. I happen to think that naming your baby. Why is a very like celebrity interesting cool thing to do. You could call them bay. you could call them bb. I agree. And i think if you're gonna copy such a no-one names could baby and if these two people know each other it's one hundred percent clear that just got it from sasha benz. I think just go all the way because y b. I is better than naming your kid. Baby why is it possible that be wise just a placeholder and this is just like being blown out of proportion. What cheating in a few years. The kids aim is going to be toddler. Now just something else no. That's not her name's work then. It's maybe she was just like we're not ready to make the commitment on this name. Well long like baby girl one right and you know in the hospital. You don't have a name on the birth certificate. They call it baby girl soffer sober so i don't know i do think this is a little loser of jessica hard american allied to steal the name and make it worse. It's just a strange strange article. Yeah now this is not what i saw for the year. It's just very odd. It's very odd are vital stories. A little bachelor news which is gonna lead us into our recap of the bachelor. Which and.

So i don't i don't know if you know this but every year because jimmy kimmel john. Abc after the premiere of the bachelor maybe after like the second or third episode. Jimmy kimmel gives his predictions for who makes the top four and then who wins and he really does a very very good job like he's almost if not always right and it's crazy because like what did. We watched thirty women last night. Like how do you really know makes me feel any cheats on was that i know boy. So i'm gonna tell you who he chose as his top three. Okay but you're gonna have to describe. I will okay on monday night. Episode of jimmy kimmel live which aired after the season premiere of the bachelor. Twenty th the fifty-three-year-old talk show revealed that his wife molly mcnary early. Guess about which three women will be finalists for james the season detailing what that he would watch his face very closely to see i would react. Kimmy held up three photographs breeze springs. Who's the girl i was. obsessed with. Green dress came out. I remember very gorgeous. Yes she's on abigail berringer. Who was the girl who got the first impression rose was death. And then rachel kirk connell. Who as she was crying during the prayer she was. I'm sorry i was just like very moved by that. Yes she was like a cornet yes she actually which was she the one who sat in the back of the pickup truck with him and they drank tea. No no no no no. I'm there was nothing remarkable about this. She was just like in the episode lodge. He was really cute. You said you look like having mendez. Oh girl yeah. I think she wins. Yeah she's gorgeous. Nothing remarkable about her just like she did bring a vibrator didn't have something. I can reference what you think about. That tells him. That is rachel Kirk connell yet. Rachel kirk connell. I think wins the whole thing. And why do you say that. I just think that from what. I've seen of matt james. Not james right. So matt james is is like in this. Maybe he wasn't on the bachelor before but he certainly in that world because his best friend. Tyler see i had seen him before and i couldn't figure out why and then i just like started looking at pictures and it's like okay like you're in the scene. You're doing this thing. It's not like they just found bum. Thuc now brought him here. He's been in the scene. We what marinating totally agree. And they keeping like this is his first time doing all this but like let's acknowledge that he was a he was a you see list like what's the word i'm looking for like he was an extension of bachelor nation. Yeah he he knows. All the people are knows how this all goes hasn't done it. I totally and i'm not saying that he's authentic. I think that he's authentic and he was nervous and all that stuff. I just think that when you're in that world like post bachelor you enter into like la celebrity la la whether you're like z list. Or whatever it may be. You're still in that world. Okay and guys that are in that world like girls. That looked like cami mendez that she looks very accuracy. Okay get that vibe. I didn't know where you were going with that. But sure sure sure. I'm sure she looks like an actress. Yeah well. I think that more so than anybody. Oh yeah i mean. I don't know what an actress looks. Like but i do think that these are really three really good. Picks and jimmy kimmel told and his wife think that rachel mcconnell cami mendez is going to be the bride like to. Yeah roya. i'm telling you i'm right. And then james has only response. Was i would say that your wife has great taste. They can't give out any answers. Obviously but i do think it's interesting that i would've pegged those as my top as well also. I think the pickup truck girl. I think her name was kayla. She was cool. She was awesome. I would have included her in the top four as well. Anybody but victoria okay. So now it's seventy episode. This would really like your first time ever watching a full episode of the bachelor. We'd was always come. In and out. When i watch full episodes i just don't like it and you made a good point last night the bachelor and the bachelorette are very different area different bachelor. I actually enjoyed the bachelorette. I want to fucking throw myself out a window. Why because i mean. I know why i do but the drama with the guys is so much worse loser on crime. Yeah it's just like every guy's trying to be like a fitness model leaf yasser like they're all just like with their ads like i. Just don't it's not even like a guy girl thing it's just like no more interesting on your own much more interesting like i just don't need to see a collection of thirty five guys like there is no. I'm sorry for saying this is going to be very intense. There is no self respecting guy that goes on a show with thirty other guys to win the heart of one girl. I i don't think that's it at all actually disagree with that but i think from an entertainment perspective like these guys are just like. They're the best of them like all very leery. I don't think that it is. I just i think it is okay. I'm the calling on your on your show notes. it's not why is it. Why can women do that. And it's not like self respecting. It's not it's not that women women have the ability to be friends with other girls better than guys do in those situations in my opinion. There's one girl. I think you're such this is such toxic masculinity and i didn't really realize it until this episode. Honestly what do you mean. You're just like so toxically masculine. You just really are okay. I said the olympia wild thing and with this like no. I agree with hardly talk. Slickly masculine let me. Just say toxically man. I don't know. I just made it up. I let me just say i agree with you. Like the bachelor is so much better as a tv show. The women are more interesting. A million different ways the way they argue the way they left the way they dress. It adds one hundred different layers. Why it's better. But i don't think that the bachelor et is bad for the reasons that you do. I just think it's a lesser show. I disagree. I think that the guys are losers. And i think that there's a far better chance that a girl can leave the bachelorette not win but pursue a career of course online than a guy shirtless like these. These fucking losers. That's that's my point. My point is is that you can have ulterior motives. As a girl go on the bachelor and succeed you can't go on the bachelorette as one of thirty goons and then just everybody become a cyclist instructor. It just doesn't work the same way. Well you know what i'm actually giving props to women that they are actually interesting more interesting and i thought that this was such an interesting group of girls. I think there's a few people we need to talk about. One is kit who is a blonde girl with the big poofy pink dress Who otherwise unremarkable. Except for the fact that she would have been bentley. and if you are a sleuth like i. Am you know that she's cynthia. Rowley daughter cynthia rallies fashion designer and this is her daughter. She's the youngest contestant she's twenty one years old and honestly she's kind of like a bitch. She looks just like queen's gambit. Who's up did jani. Kim queen's gambit now. Do you need to start. What does the same actress in the politician. No oh you think she looks like lucy boynton she. The one who tries to have a threesome with employees. You know i think she looks like i think. She looks like queen's gambit better for that name. But i think that she thinks she's too good to be there and like she's just i have a feeling she's gonna give me villainy vibes and obviously the front runner in terms of villains. Is victoria. yeah that's why. I don't think that she's not giving me villainy she's reacting to the most annoying woman on the planet she was really annoying and i just think like any like woman who shows up with a thrown like. It's just it's never going to be good and you can show with the throne. Leave it at the door. Now every every woman stick was left at the door except for annoying vibrating greater and that girls also annoying showing like imagine your personality being a vibrator you. You made a funny joke. It's like the person i felt victim to this. You make a joke and then you don't let it go. Let it go to stop making the same joke joke. it's over. Yeah you came in on a throne. You were the clean it which cute you gave him. The king crown that did king queen leave it at the door every other like every time that she and her the queen. Get of here. The queen's here so annoying and so in a way and just like i don't know she was the definition of like sh. She just thought she was going to walk in there. And just be the queen and that she was everything on the store that somebody lied to her several times and told her that she was like fly. Hot and sexy beautiful. She just walked in like really thinking she was the queen of these girls. And like she wasn't i he was just one of thirty. I hate this show and this franchise. Because she was picked. I know for a fact. There is no shot in hell that he wanted to pick her. Now i turn to you. And i said are they really about to give the rose to this fucking girl just to keep her on because she has drama. Rama's ben i said. I would literally guarantee like every dollar i've ever made in my life. Of course victoria gets rose and of course she got the final rose when she is just nothing of the sort. Yeah no and that's what. I was trying to explain to band. Who's the new to the franchise it's like here. There's a fire alarm. do you think. I think we're fine. I think that that's what i was trying to explain to you. Because you knew the franchise like always make sense like matt. James is such and we should talk about him as a bachelor like he's a stand up guy like yeah. When he opened with a prayer. I was like man. This man like. He's just like you could tell a good guy. He loves his mom so much. He's a stand up guy and ino realm of possibility. Would he ever be interested in a girl victoria. so they're they're therefore henceforth she should not get arose. But that's why the franchises annoying they've reward behavior like that terrible also his mom's so fly so fly choose like she was super cool. I don't know i. I got the feeling that he was like a cool. Good guy seemed super nice. Smart ex football player or a college football player. He played varsity the demon deacons. Something like that is the name of the are they good. They were actually pretty decent this year. They were just like a grade school chris. Paul went to wake forest. It's a great great. It's a very impressive to be a college athlete from wake forest. Now skew toilets chris harrison not that tall but matt james is really tall. Matches gives me like six five vodka. Huge let me ask you a question because you're obviously very well versed in sports and i would love to know what your thoughts are on like former slash failed pro athletes going on the bachelor like obviously and underwood was. He was on an nfl team. Yeah so the the difference to me not to speak poorly of colton clay. What team he played them but he played football. He was such a nice guy. I don't like failed athletes. I don't consider map james failed. I'm not talking about it. And i'm talking about in general. I'm saying unless you made it pro. Yeah no i mean know who was. Actually i take back what i said if somebody is going to offer you the ability to turn your career when your career has ended right and beyond tv. Who the who's going to say no. I don't blame them like honesty. Success story is jordan. Rogers aaron rodgers. His brother he made a pro and bench surfed like for a year and it was just not it and then he went on the bachelorette and now he has a huge job at. Sec is at the network. What's the same for like a division of college. Oh no that's on the networking could be. Yeah so he has a great job there in the really turned it around and like sometimes haven't even associate him with bachelor nation anymore. Like just the sports guy which is interesting. Because i feel like the People in sports associated with the bachelor. And probably don't like him. Of course he has so many instagram followers. People know who he is. It's a really good. Move on behalf of sec. To hire him and he's like very good looking and he's a rogers i mean. Even though they don't talk he's an influencer. You know what. I been very hard on him. And jo jo. I didn't really believe in their love but now they've been engaged for three years and they don't bother anyone. I actually think like what he's done his job. I'm sure people in the sports industry see differently. But from where i stand like. I think what he's done is impressive. All the guys on the bachelor like one ago into sports like of course who do want it and the sports world is like who the fuck are these. All the guys that are on the backs want to go into sports because it was like their passion like guys like sports. That's way that like every every kid. And i don't want to us sports agent and then like you become an account. No girls from the bachelor like beauty and lifestyle content. That's like what a lot of girls wanna do. Yeah i i. I don't know jordan rogers really like i was particularly not a fan when we were watching last night and they were promoting kiss no alcohol. Beer like commercial really. No one is more negative about the bachelor than me. But i'm thinking that you could take my crown victoria. The show last night was a fine. It was good so long. Two hours didn't even feel like two hours time flip. Oh my god no no. I was going to really getting exhausted towards the end. Yeah no but if victoria last and week. I know that they're keeping her there. And that's just not cool like let let no. She'll s way more than what matt on love. She'll will ask way more than weak. They're still like twenty five girls there so they go from fifty to twenty five on the first night. No there was like thirty other work. They do the first night. I think the only sent two or three girls home last night and for the first couple of weeks they send home like two girls three girls. And then it's one one one when you get down to like fifteen And then you get cut to four go to hometown three make the next round and then to get engaged moon proposed to one zero dildo vibrator didn't make no she did. She was so annoying. Yeah she lost when she threw her vibrator in that face. Mari who i thought was so pretty when she was talking about her family like what they've experienced with the hurricane fucked up down in puerto rico was so fucked up but it's also not vibrators vibrant girls fault like she didn't know what they were talking. No everybody just like cuts in. It was just tags on the shoulder with a dildo. That production like four sturdy. Golic they coordinate. These things to happen perfectly standards. Ask so sad. You also looks just like a girl from a different season decker. Well that's just everyone knows. Everybody looked like somebody on the show. Was that one girl that look just like the mom from modern family. Yes bent out. There was a girl who looked like julie bowen. But i didn't know who he was talking about.

Studio Good Morning, studio. Thank you. I stayed up. All. Night last night just dealing with this sinus thing. But I feel like I'm on the track back on track back baby. Both I talk like this around the house. And I'm not sick at all. It's just once a years thing gets me and I've take every medicine in the world I wake up. Take three allergy pills to take just nonstop stop medicine cabinet every day. But Yeah. Hopefully I got a steroid shot. You. Have a friend. WHO's a nurse that helps? Yeah I was like hey dude and he got a steroid, shot. Ella. Pretty lucky to have a friend that's a nurse. It can do that. Not Everybody does but definitely count my blessing on that one. But if I'm performing in the city I'm doing standup I have this I'll find like a minute clinic, the popular the steroid shot you feel great for about four hours and then you just WanNa rip your guts out the rest of the night because it's such a singer. So that's last night I watched the final night of the Republican National Convention I watched every night. Of both of them. I feel that and that's pretty awesome both. Your. What's your take him I felt that's a great question. What's my takeaway I feel like? I'm suffering an existential crisis with myself right now that I don't I watch them both and I'm like. Yeah to some of it. That's IT I can't. I'm just not what I guess everybody is where you just take yourself in firmly put yourself in aside and dig in go. We're here you're not you suck. Yeah Drives me. Crazy. So that's what I found that. I've not normal because I watch and their things and I'm. I'm I smaller government but then again, I was on food stamps and welfare is a kid. You know. I am. Second Amendment got guns in my house however, I think it should be a little harder to get one. And so I just kind of walked down these. I love our law enforcement but if you don't think there are problems right now out of your frigging mind. So But. You almost can't have that opinion because a new get yelled at by both sides and that's that sucks because that's what people spend the majority of their time doing and then it's just the bashing and the not. Just feel like be so much more productive. If people thought that way in trust me I for years just because it's how I grew up. I was very very. Narrow minded voter just because this was the party I registered as and so that's what I had to vote for. A registered Republican but I don't feel that attached to it that it defines me as a person and that means I have to agree with every single person or that I have to support candidates on the Republican ballot that's just doesn't have to happen. And once you give yourself that permission to like think other things than i. mean you just feel better and I just feel like sometimes people are just so stuck in their party lane that their blinders on and I've been there. So just and I am I'm talking all the politicians right now all the ones that are listening. Oliver. Take your blinders off. Well, they have to act a way to get the money they need. Because they're getting money from people with blinders on. So I'm also talking to people with money. Yeah. Good luck with that and people money just want their ideas pushed along. They're basically paying their ideas push? Yeah. So there's just a lot but I watched both both, and then I I was like, let me draw my conclusion as to where I feel and I just feel like I'm not like everybody else I just feel like everybody most folks are on side and the hate the other side and I can't make myself do that. There are crazy racial issues in this country again. I, don't take the show and go down this road a lot but that's how that's how I got a cold now watch both conventions and finished going I dunno cats on with me and when I run and Arkansas. I can literally go one of three ways. I could be a progressive. Republican. Conservative moderate Democrat or an independent, but you have no money there. It's hard to get somebody to back you. So if any of the Waltons are listening Any of. You have some canal started go fund me now for my campaign if I do run. That's getting a little testy around work to the. Corporate, where are you with that same thirty percents we're GONNA see what happens this election. You know I think how this maybe not so much who wins but I think how this election Happens. And what happens because we this is something we've never seen before we're about to have mail in ballots, which there's are completely legit We're we're going to have people not wanting to vote because of the pandemic we're GONNA have. Who knows what's GONNA happen with the results afterward so I think a lot of that will depend on that. You running running for. Leaving this show in two thousand, twenty, one to go run. But I'm thirty percents. Still people ask me all the time to check the temperature with an Instagram Paul. No. Who would get out and vote? Well, it's only people in Arkansas. I've followers from Arkansas we have we do have but so. That's what I did. We did that went to amy's house though. Dropped her sons they gift off. took him a playstation for giving them one first birthday. Oh. Yeah. Is He gonNA play with us now? Yeah. But he didn't really care. Okay He. Won't care told been your husband I was like he he wasn't that appreciative then but once he plays he's going to be like this is the greatest thing ever Yeah. He didn't. I said what he I know he was so excited to get a gaming console because that's what he wanted and I asked him. You left I was like, why were you more excited because it's embarrassing something about him is like shifting to where he? Feel like. To Act as embarrassing, and I'm like, that's not embarrassing to. Be excited about you an amazing gift but he he does love it. He'll love it. I'd have to love nobody. The song that's the all time against stuck in your head abalysts here.

Friday morning conversation with Ray calling tell I'm so excited that you you came up here today bobby thank you. Mean I was I was blown away when I got the email that you you wanted me up here I was like man, this is cool. Don't get to do stuff like this that often in this show is the show why don't you the man's so so thank you so much for having me just first of all, getting all of us will geek out for a second we're we just. Matt we grew up in the nineties you know. And we're just massive fans of you and your music, and when we hear these songs, it reminds us of. What we were doing, we were twelve thirteen or fourteen years old right when we're all big fans the universally panned. Thank you guys and that's the thing about music I mean because I mean I wouldn't have ever wanted to do. The S had not been a fan of it and I I loved the music got I grew up on it would be great. So Country Music Rock and roll and stuff, and and so but so but you still win when beginning and you have that I hit or to radio you still don't think that that's ever GonNa Happen to to yourself to where somebody might twenty thirty years down the road. Would have that kind of feeling in you know to make up, give them a warm and fuzzy. So to speak because of something that I that I was apart of you know. So that's I get to experience that all the time now, which is cool. Well, I was on I was looking through I was I was having a call night at the House I was just playing a bunch of songs. And like my jam has little rock and I was like, let me see it's got to be his number one and number two moisture and I couldn't believe it was like number five on the street. Literally. To me, is that the definition of a Collin Raye song now thank you one. Ask You though what does this on the most people know you for is not little rock that would be probably third. Wow. Yeah. I think love a was the first one and that's That when everybody knows everybody knows that one and that's my story would be the other because it's funny about. That's my story is just like I played worldwide, internationally would be. That's my story because they could call I played in places in Europe and different places. Singapore. You know and they're like they're going you know Collin Raye Collin Right you go into my story, and even if it's not an English speaking country, they all know the chorus, right? Well, maybe little rock though because I'm from Arkansas well and I think it will meet me as a lie and I, that's my favorite of personal favorite of all the hits would be little right because I just think it's it's just such a incredibly written. Song one one of the first country songs of the nineties that had that kind of a social. Message to it, but was able to be a hit because prior to that, it was tough to get a song that said something that deep. To shoot up the chart you know, and so when that did I felt like we kinda broke ground and and so to me, that will always be my favorite in because it's such a well constructed song and it's so picturesque and So vivid still my favorite one to sing to always feel like I'm seeing it for the first time just the details. because. There's no like. Washing it it's like the Church of Christ preacher the cell VCR's a walmart like it is very much in the exact place of this guy. Yeah that and so I I know you guitar we're GonNa spend some time together. Can you give us a little rock right now? Why not? Talk about. Let's go versa course. Will. Office. Time to. Handle way lost me. I needed newtown dramatic news start. Selling. BC is in Arkansas won't. I haven't had a drink in nineteen days. My is clear and. Without that he's. Like the preacher from the churches, with price. Sorry. Craft. talked to you last night. But A. More. Here in. Stone Baby. Weight in. Just one small problem. Grow with. The none me. With. You. Smile. This is the greatest. Thank you holy morning voiced by the way? So? Let me say this I. Know You just celebrate your sixtieth birthday. Thank you. Could still well thank you brother and the high. Thank you. So I still it pretty much every note that I hit back in the day once in a while I'll tell you what since his whole lockdown thing we've caught obviously like everybody got so many dates canceled and been home to being a couch potato so much it your voice really is like a bicep deal with thing they say if you if you don't use it, you lose it kind of thing, and it's it's so when I do get a chance to sing, it's like, whoa. It takes me a little time to get open. You know man now. Yeah Thank you so much. Wow Okay Collin Raye. Is here. So Nine hundred, four letter I came out. So you'd had a few hits by then. Song, starts to I picked as a single in his did you feel like there's a there was a real shot with early or did it take a minute to burn? Will Paulina found the song Tom Douglas of course Rhoda who who that was his first cut as a writer because he went on to write so many great songs for Martina and Halston from McGraw Randy. Great right or one of the best we have and so I'm thankful that we got to cut his first one. You know. But it honestly because of the hits that I'd had leading up to that they need have been kinda rockers. Straight up love songs. And so I was a little leery. I loved it and I thought I'm I'm so proud of this record, but I thought can we really can we really make this a hit? You know so I had I was a little apprehensive about it but I believe we had a good team over to epic good radio team and I thought you know if you guys are into this than that I'm into it and the rest is history I'm always curious about how songs fine people because that Tom Douglas you know he's one of the. Writers of the song the story because I know Tom a little bit in the story is that he had moved to Nashville veiled moved to Texas was selling real estate but he was living with his dad and they'd they'd never had are super close relationship but he came home and his dad had this one song that he loved and it was little. Rock. and Tom Douglas was like, wow, and that's what got him back into Nashville writing more songs. Again was your was your hit with Iraq well I knew part of this or I didn't know the store part about his dad he never told me that but but I knew that that song had got okay I guess I can do this and it's like, yes, sir, you can. You're very good at this. You just kill it because he. Could be well written, but if you don't perform and deliver it. It isn't just a great. Thank you man I've always my my theory was always. I'm I'm not smart enough to try to to act anything. It's kind of like look if if it's a song if it's a song into and I love what it says I feel like I can deliver it will if it's something that I just. Passed on his songs that went on to be his for the people just because. I thought I don't think I'm the one the guy to do that. You know, and then somebody else would have a hit on it and they say, well, don't you wish you had that back on because they needed that song they they were this person who is supposed to sing that you know of a little rock was one that I just felt. So. Close to the minute. We heard it in the original. Dima was just tom playing unlock old attitude wall Baldwin piano singing to a cassette recorder. It was not good quality at all and there was like fourteen songs on it. Love remains was another one. That was on there and but I think a little rock was like number eight. And we heard that we looked at. Wow. That just do something to you. You know, and so I said, the rest is history and and Tom has done quite well since then had. Let's go back to the beginning one ninety-one. Love Me. I mean I I did finally succumbed to the pressure of the room to go love me as probably my mind is big a little rock club because there's no song this should be ranked above bubble. But so this song like tell me is this was this the first single you put out of the first hit you had with the first single was all I can be is a sweet memory which which God blessing Vince Gill Sang Harmony with me on which really helped at break that loose, and that went to like number twenty two on the chart, and but the video went number one. So it was like, okay well that was a technically what you'd call a big hit but he did get your twenty two in the video at number one. So we're onto something here you know, and then love me was the second single and it it flew up the chart and that again for for a kid I was I was thirty which and. But when that was happening I couldn't believe it because the other song had been such a struggle. It'd be like, okay, we're at ninety six or the next one. Bullet were ninety five now. You know and think this is. How it's always going to be. In, love me came out and it was jumping like twelve spots, fifteen spots, eight, twelve and. At. kind of giddy feeling when I because I had the radio on constantly you know and it was just getting played every thirty minutes it seemed like you know and. So that that was, that's the one that I guess will always be my mom calling card. So to speak I, guess you ever flip stations and you're on station you flip the other one, the town, and you're like on both stations at the same time high. Back in the day it happened. Because I lived in the Dallas area at the time. And you had. A big station Fort Worth had K. Plex Dallas and then there was one other in young country. And so. I had him on I was just one after another going back and forth back and forth back. So you weren't here that was no I was living in Texas. Wow whoo, and so we're calling yeah, you got Nashville if you're gonNA well, it was weird because I'd been divorced and my. Ex Wife and my kids were living in Greenville Texas and so in. In prior to getting my record deal I was working at Reno working casinos and stuff and I couldn't afford to leave because we were making. Really, good money for for a you know for the level we were at, it was making good money and I said well, I can't afford leave here because I was taking care of them and. And Whatnot and so when when the record deal happened and love me happened I thought okay I can afford Natta Leisure and go be where they are. So I wound moving there and spent pretty much all the nineties I. Didn't move to national until I think ninety nine. From. Nineteen Ninety one here's calling ray. He's he's like McHugh. All right. Here we go. Here is a love me. Read an node migraine Mall Road back in Nineteen twenty-three. GRANDPA kept in his coat. He showed it. To me. You said Boy Emma. Understand But alone um ago. Grandma's.

This fruit of a loom song because I remember it. This commercial here it was from fruit of loom underwear commercial. It's from two, thousand, five, hundred, play a little clip at this here. Here you go. Out in the world. Did they approach you? How did you do audition for that? You have or they? Chris Farren is a friend of mine had had. This had the end to fruit of the loom at that time and had he had found this song or had I think I wait a minute? Sorry. He Co wrote this song for the Jingle and I thought it was great for the kind of commercial they were going through and it was going to be a super bowl commercial. And and so he bless his heart. He thought well I need somebody. This song is really tongue-in-cheek is about over it's about being in love with your underwear. So it needs to sound really dramatic. WHO CAN I get? That will make that will get you know, and so I went down to the studio and he he played the song for him and I was cracking up you know I said, are you sure you want me to? Just, saying it like it's saying it like it's little rock just pour your heart out into and and so I did it. You know thinking well, this can't if it's GONNA be on the Super Bowl this can't be a bad thing, right? And it became man people talked about that for years and years and years and it was it was a nice check. I. Would get ever so often to just residuals it kept coming in from it. Yeah. I mean you'd Bravo time he's Osher could usual extra money I mean we have you know it was a down year or whatever, and all of a sudden there'd be a twenty five, hundred I check in the mail for for from fertile. So yeah so it was it was a cool deal. I mean I wish I could do about one of those year Right. All Right Colin raise here where we're kinda rolling through some of the catalog here. So let's go nineteen ninety-two like when I bring up in this life what's that make? You Think About Man I mockery make a mockery, the rider who was You know Mike Story he was a football player of the Cincinnati Bengals, all pro defensive tackle. But a concert pianist to which is such an odd pairing and When he retired from football, he wanted to come down here and be in rock country songs and he and I think Alan Chamberlain. wrote in his life and so in the know Garth Fund is actually produced that album second album and we were ready to go. We had our Africa in twelve songs. WHAT ARE WE GONNA? Do we had them ready to go and but we didn't have that one and the night before we actually was going to track the next day somebody from that publishing company brought the song over and it was Mike seen it. You know and he's great singer. We thought man there's our there's our first single off this album. You know if we can hook it tomorrow you know and so it was a very lack a last minute thing that came our way and and I loved it because it was a love song which at that time, Sony was really trying to push me as sort of. A love. Song. Guy You know. And And I like it because it could be about anybody you could you know could be by anyone in your life you know child, your one of your children are apparent Anything it was just a kinda universal kind of message about just loving somebody that much and being loved by that person so much this this has got to be a winner. So before he played I, guess I listening to you talk about how they were kind of. Personifying you. Do they ever go hey, we love slow songs. I'm going to work on the radio back then. Oh. Yes. He now is more concerned about it than they were actually because because that's why jumping th the next single he was his next single after in this life was a son call I want you bad and that ain't good which was rocker thing and I pushed for that because I said guys, I don't WanNa be Perry Como. I don't want you I want. I do 'cause my live show was off chasing guard. You know I was trying to, I was trying to do that and but I was having to do a bunch of covers to keep my show that exciting because. So many of the his were were ballots you know and so in this. So I was working as they think they were comfortable and just letting me be that for a while and then I was sort of forced the issue over the next few albums and said Oh man I I wanna long career I want this to last a while and we can't just keep giving them. Giving them ballot can't keep giving your radio ballads. It's time after time you know, what are we gonNA a right now? But I'm glad to the one. Thousand nine hundred two by the way, Colin, rate is here here is in this life For all add been blessed with. Smith. There was in emptiness in me. I was imprisoned. Go. On touch you sit me free. Little. Stop Turn. Let the. Sun Stop. Let them tell me up. Going through. For who support? How will know? My? Home. The only dreamed battered had to. Choose In this live. Was Love. You I feel the here's the back of my neck Xanana. Hanging out having our by now here's My neck or still standing up. Like A reappropriation of your songs that. Maybe fell off a bit but now just back, full force. And again, that's something a lot of my friends from the nineties my compatriots you know that were out at the same time. Basically, we we all talk about it all the time whenever he's kind, it's Kinda. Cool that. You just didn't expect it almost kind of feel like nineties country. Is Kind of the new classic rock and by that I mean, you have because I mean we I grew up on the classic rock and roll of the seventies and stuff. And It had such a resurgent say in the nineties where you wanted to hear grand funk, you wanted to hear fog you wanted to hear seger you know and and it and they're touring just exploded. And you know making more money on the road than they did back in the day because people wanted to relive that music so much and I think nineties country was so big I give garth's so much credit for that because he busted down a lot of walls and opened up made that narrow two lane road into this big superhighway and I think it touched. The music we did back in touch. So many people now they are at that age where or they WANNA relive it. You know and and they have a little more money because they have careers and the tickets the money you know in the touring is big. Yeah. No. Well up until this all this nonsense but it but prior to that I mean we were it was just it was amazing and you and I would see young people. I mean very young people twenty twenty years old twenty, four years old. Seventeen years old girls singing along. To do the songs you know and. That means their parents raised them listen to it. I was talking to Tracy Lawrence Pretty. Recently, he said the same thing about classic rock exact. Same analogy. He was classic rock. We got two point one or two here the CPR stuff example, and so he's like people. Pay Me Birmingham because I think that music for my generation Tracy Generation. That music was the biggest thing. There was class the rock and roll of that time in pop pop rock and roll of that time was the biggest thing in the world. So I had the biggest impact on us you know as far as. To own a lot of people you know because even country music I mean I grew up Merle haggard and Buck Owens cash and Waylon? Johnny Horton and Jim Reeves, but it was always kind of. Exclusive Club because you remember being in high school even in the south. And Middle School and high school and stuff, and if you like country music really they just didn't get it. They didn't under a lot of kids just didn't understand why we lacked it. You know but but rock and roll everybody likes. You more of a universal impact and and I agree with Tracy I feel like now is our time. It says like ninety country was that big Well one boy, one girl where do you put that in your set? When play 'cause? That's just smash two? Oh, man usually in the middle and and that is that may be. One. Of the most requested songs we get because sometimes you I'll do that when I'm not planning to do that. If I, go to a Colin ratio and you don't play one boy one girl find me getting a refund real quick. You know what I have heard that. There are certain ones. That you just know you always need to do and in others I try to switch out because we had quite a few and you think well in there's new stuff you WanNa do stuff and and it's very hard for me to sometimes a lot of artists I think go through this. You think well, well, I WANNA I wanNA play this because this means a lot to me but then I'll go see someone else and I do the same thing if they don't play Two or three of the ones I get I get a little mad about you. I can't believe they didn't do this. Then I have to remember now they're saying the same thing about me if I leave certain songs out so now I'm doing it all the time well Y- I'm not gonNA. Let you escape know without plan me a little boy one girl refund. Under All right. Here we go and I never realized how many twins there were in America until we put this song out and apparently it was a lot of lots of families that have twins at that could relate to this story and so. He finally gave in news friends who? When she said there's some on you shouldn't be. Crowded restaurant way. Cross town, you waited him patiently. When she walked. Smith. Hen, they both stared. Right there and then. Everyone else disappeared. One girl. Two hearts meeting only to put it mildly it was love at first. He smiled. She smiled. This was. Four older. S. In for a moment. Revolved around one. happening. Right now. Thank thank you so much. So you got a new album's coming out called scars. The whole albums is it's GonNa be October right now did you record this in the last few months? Yeah. Yeah. We we actually were wrapping it up when the whole corona thing started, and so I'm lucky we got it in there when we did and. Guiding David. Ferguson. Foggy produces he's. A claimed producers and they what? The regularly was autumn and they kind of wanted an Americana kind of record and and so I thought okay. Well cool. I'm still not sure what the definition of that is it kind of. They're kind of is no definition is the way I took it. It's like well, this can be as as as edgy. Dark little bit happy. Can be a little bit folk. It can be whatever you want it to be, and that seems to be what they wanted and so so it was a really fun record to make and I wrote every song on it. Except for right wrote or co wrote every song on it except for a couple that my brother. wrote and it for. In bring, he's played with Miranda Lambert for since she began he he introduced me to Miranda when she was seventeen years old. As I've known her a long time and He was sort of her only band when she was playing around Dallas and Austin and stuff in playing the little just pee Kucinich things and stuff. And he always believed in, of course, as did I had no idea it was going to go where it went. You know but she's just awesome and. He's played with her up until recently he's had some health issues with his heart and whatnot had a really bad year last year and he's probably done touring at this point and So anyway, this record was kind of a full circle moment for us because he and I started this together when we were, you know fifteen sixteen years old. And we got separated and went different ways. We re very different in a lot of a lot of ways we things will want to do and whatnot but we've always been close. But it was so cool to get to work with him on this record. He plays on it. He sings on it and the title Song Scars that Miranda Sings with me on Heap Scotty wrote that like twenty years ago and I've been holding onto that song for the right for the right time you WanNa play some of that right now let's listen to some scars here from right. That'd be pretty cool that ran a is going to sing with you too I mean we're hearing you guessing right there. That's that's pretty cool. Yeah. She I mean she she'd been threatening to do it for for a while. And and so because again, like we known each other, really really long time and and in her early early days, I, would do things rod show up and play on a on a bill that she was on and whatnot what she repeat appreciated that when people when she was just getting started and I guess this was her little favor to me into Scotty to get to do this, and of course, she killed it. She's a great singer in the studio and when in there she knew the song too because she had done it. Had played it live before the last few years whenever they would do like an acoustic thing where it was just turned. Scotty and maybe you know riders and around kind of thing, she would always do scars and just saying the paint off of it. You know and Scotty was hoping she'd cut it and she's I'm thinking about it. I'm thinking about thinking about it. And so I said, well, heck if she's not going, do it that I'm I'm cutting you know and then to bring her in on it. So obviously, she knew the song so well, she wasn't she went in the studio fifteen minutes and just kill it now, and it really kind of anointed this record having her on there. The full hour mountain October. Well. Why don't we end on this song they you say all over the world people know your most for this I wouldn't pick a I know this one of my favorites like the group vocals and and I rarely let us show due gang vocals open but I was Gonna ask you do. They need you need it. That's my story Dasmarinas. Maas, you can't really do without it. Yes. So we're GONNA be here for you. On the gang vocals and that's story. Okay. I would be honored the last call and Ray here we go. I came in as the sun came up. She ran me over her coffee come. She said way you've been so thought real hard and said I fell asleep and that Hammock. In the yard she said you know w just blew it and I said, well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it then semester. That's my. Asthma's store mom. got a witness and I can't really you got it. But that's my story and Stig into? Nine. Well. Color hearts a couple things before we get. Thing number one is we're all such big fans. This has been such a joy for me. Personally, you know I to be a bit jaded because I get to do a lot of cool things down my job occasionally resets me. It's like does what makes me happy and this this whole thing made me happy today. Thank you. So that means a lot. To me and just again, thank you for having me come in. It's been a it's an honor fan and just love the show and and you're on a roll and it's just a it's just it's really cool to get to be a part of it. My final question I saved this for the very end. Do you remember our great twitter twenty fourteen? GonNa. Prevent. Can I explain ahead I'm ready. Okay. 'cause I wrote a book. Okay. As my lap story in the man who? The Management Team. Had at the time. The story had really was. It was basically about my life story I know some law tragedy in my life over the years and whatnot family stuff and and it was basically was more about my faith journey and in the family situation. But yet there were some music business stuff in it and Because I knew well, if it's a Collin Raye autobiography, they're gonNa hear some stuff about the music stories too. So we had a lot some anecdotes and different story is in there but my manager at the time was really looking for a hook that he could for Pr Hook you know and so and so we T- I'd made some. Some comments about the modern country music at the time and and we've got seriously taken out of context and he forced it, and so he was the one trying to push that and I was like. I didn't mean that. So, he kept trying to draw me into this to this thing because he thought it would it sale? You know I've I've never been I've never been a big fan of that. You know and so real quick story but I love Travis trip. Love Him. He was one of my favorite artists of the nineties. And there was a comment in there. I was talking about certain records in the nineties that I thought were just rocking just moments where you just you know think that that's really good. That's really good and I always loved his cover of trl. You belly the oil Elvis Song because it just was he slated the bands. It was just a really great great cover. And so I mentioned that in the book. Okay. Well, the just. So you know the way you write these books generally. None of us are are authors where we sit down at a typewriter, basically sit in front of a video camera. An hour a night for like three months and just would tell us tell my story and then a go go Schreider I. Guess if you WanNa call them that would try to put it into manuscript you know and so there were a lot of things that he wrote differently than what I said. So I would go back and try to it and I didn't I didn't say that I didn't ask to be taken the wrong way. So anyway, I fought with him with the publisher throughout the whole process I'll never another book again as long as I live. and. So so but one of the things he said and there he talks about the my comment about two zero ub l. e. and he kind of made it sound like. dissing the song. And that's not what I said and so I thought I'd say take that out, take that out and final main skirt comes out it's in there. So. So I've thought, wow, Travis doesn't read this book he'll take it the wrong way. So we're at the Randy Travis attribute that he had a couple of years back at Bridgestone you know and I'm back there in Travis hadn't seen wate comes with me who count on average. I got this look of panic on my face and I was like Oh hamied goes all loved it out. So I guess it didn't he did take it as well but I was afraid of that because I love the record it sounded like I was well. I'm not like didn't dig at Song you know but no, he took it really well, but I'll never forget that got this is just broke out into a cold sweat. You only go. She got Richard. No. Anyway. So I I didn't want to. My manager was going bobbies. Bobby wants to do this and I was like Oh because I don't want to be known for a guy that's. The, guys that are out there now, and that's what he was trying to get me to be and I was like add comfortable with that. So thank you for. Up With For the very indicates it got that's GonNa Fistfight or something. All the songs and then the fist fistfight but. I think all I said I think I said something about the lyric I felt like the lyrics were kind of a lot of them were kind of the same story say message Dirt Road Cetera and I made some kind of comment about that and and boy he ran with it. So this is good. This is good as s not what? Did you when you were coming up wherever folks were like call, right? Country Oh. Yeah. Used to get that all the time in. You would I remember? Chestnut came came out to radio about the same time I'd if God, British too. So you got some really good country voices that were out at that time and because I sounded a little more. Don Henley Canada. People like well, he's a he's a he's really Iraq and he's just down her you know. And if they only knew, you know I mean I with this guitar right now if you had if you had about six days, I could sit here and since classic country songs. Not. Not Miss a word never repeat the same song, but because that was my specialty. So to speak in my early producer said, no, this is your thing you don't need to be doing. too cold at home you need to be doing. This is gonNA. Make you stick. Lasko make you sound different than everybody else. there was a lot of people that thought I don't know if he's really country you're not. You know so I get dad I mean I've been on the receiving side of that where where in account hurt your feelings Lubitsch Eagle Yeah, I am man because I I would sit there and name. Glen Campbell rape price who sometimes sounded is countries corn rate other times. He sounds like a pop singer you know. There's many of the Jim Reeves there's many of the greats that we all admiring is that didn't all sound like Merle. You know that's just one style that Morales is just in rural still the king of that. But that lefty for sale kind of thing that there's more than just that one style of country music you'll hang didn't sing like that. You know but but I think there was a time where if you didn't if you didn't. Right in right. If he didn't do that all, he's not country, right? So I get that's why I didn't want to get into that whole thing is like now I'm not knocking what this is. A whole different generation is a whole different time times change music changes and everybody's doing their thing and they're successful because they're doing their thing really well. And so anyway I've I've. I'm sorry I'm sorry you remember. All right. US hoping you've forgotten. We had a great time congressman. Gracanica. I speak for everybody in the room yes. Yes. Absolutely.

We talked about how pay me a Birmingham was never a number one and all of his hits from the ninety S. Asked him why the nineties such a beloved decade for Country Music I think he was just such a great. It was really a magical time for country music. All started in eighty nine with garth brooks and Clint Black Travis trip and Alan Jackson Mark Chestnut. That was the beginning of it and that explosion drove. So many of us can come to Nashville. I mean, because of the by the time we got into the early nineties it was it was traditional country with an edge. To it. I. Really think that we're going to look back home anonymous. It's kind of like what classic rock is to the country these days it's going to be that music that sustained for a long long time. There was just something really special about it. Conrad mentioned that earlier about the classic rock analogy. So check it out. I talked with a flight twenty minutes. If you love nineties country like I do I mean, how can you not love paint me a Birmingham two, thousand three. Talking about the you know wasn't a number one but he was like man, maybe the biggest song of my career that or time marches on one, thousand, hundred six. Oh or alibis nineteen ninety-three.

He's I mean I think it's boosted his morale even just knowing that he's coming already by one hundred percent. Well. Let's go to another good thing. It is time for our final first round food. After this, we go to the next round. Dhabi power shell. Great. All right. We have to food items here. They're going to battle it out against each other a little low voice thing going here I can't really give them all today. But we've been putting to food rivals against each other over the last weeks, and eventually we'll see which one ranks at number one. This week we ate its battle of the kids cereals. The Red Corner they come with hearts and stars and horseshoes, and clovers, and Blue Moon's and UNICORNS and rainbows and tasty red balloons plus crunchy gluten free oats but. that. They are. A serving will run you one hundred, thirty, three calories ten grams of sugar. They're magically delicious luggage. John's right here. Facing. Off in the Blue Corner, it's the cereal that consists of small squares or rectangles of wheat and rice covered with cinnamon and sugar there one, hundred, sixty, eight calories per serving twelve grams of sugar. The taste you can see the crazy squares you crave it his cinnamon toast. All right. Amy Are. All over here? Both me and the nelken everything. Yeah. Yeah. I do this only for free food now I know. This. Amazing. To pick one. I can't really decide I initially was going lucky charms but I, it's been. So long since I had cinnamon toast crunch I, feel like I don't know.

I always would by lucky charms lucky charms of mine. What works Oh man these are both mouth-watering. Good I love me some lucky charms marshmallows.

Today we have country hit makers Florida Georgia line, and they're winning writer Griffin, Palmer, so we add a ball I am beyond in love with Florida. Georgia line I was in love before, but I am beyond in love because they are the coolest coolest guys ever just blew me away in when I tell you Mr Griffin promise that song second guessing what in the world and I know you guys thing episode, so the balanced Florida's I was so without further Ado Ladies and gentlemen here is Tyler Hubbard and Ryan Kelly of Florida Georgia Line to tell you the story of writing one of their songs that put them on a map they are smash. Lab would be me WREKSA. Bouquet on the Florida. My parents weren't musicians. Mom, Dad, my sister Catherine, I mean. We just listen to a bunch of music. My Dad loved Aerosmith Lynyrd skinner. My sister was the one that got us into country music when I was in fifth grade I. Remember we went to the Saint Augustine outlet model. Pick up the neal McCoy wink single cassette. And I was hooked, and then it was brooks and Dunn, and it was Kenny Chesney and Next thing you know I'm in ninth or tenth grade, and we're listening to hot boys and cash, moaning and Lil Wayne. Christian. Music here is Tyler Hubbard. Started kind of writing in dabbling on Guitar, and like High School, our junior or senior year of college, I did learn of the year Darrell Moody Nashville that yeah, there's a career called songwriting, and that sounds awesome I think I wanna do that, but I didn't still pursue it or take a serious toe, probably our senior year, and that's when we became I started hanging out heavily and writing. Writing Songs and realize that we got something special here. I mean we wrote together. was anything like me in that just so happen to be the first song that we heard on the radio. It was Sirius Xm, but we call it the radio, so that will special. Now decided to get the whole chorus tattooed on my real, because it was the first one we ever, so that was A. A painful experience, but it was an unforgettable experience in one that led us to do in a lot more together in our remember US sitting on my tailgate during the process, and after the process of writing I, we were like. Yeah, this is this feel special man? I love working with you I think we like literally finish each other's sentences, and this is really special, just maybe we. We should ride again. It's been amazing as as songwriters and artists together doing this together, having my best friend, my brother. We're not doing it alone at think we're better together. We're stronger and our favorite quote. We've heard is if you WANNA? Go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together, so I think we push each other creatively a just kind of works and so. Our journey in our first couple years in Nashville I mean. We were knocking on doors. We were trying to get deals. We were writing to three times a day, trying to work different jobs and just hustling and you know we've had some success and. Thankful for our fans and I think we're more motivated than ever. Our still the same guy showing up trying right hits China right songs trying to get our voices heard, so it's an amazing thing to be able to chase our dream and create our future with creating songs. I would say that our catalog just kind of evolves with every album with every chapter stage of life that we're in baby a all. I know this song has a pretty funny story. Actually started, so we were at dinner it was it was at night and we got a call from our manager. They said Hey actually I know you're you're right was canceled, but there's girl bb wreksa who's available in would love to write with you guys, and and we thought well sure. Yeah, let's do it i. don't really know who bb rex is, but let's go in there and make the most of it. It'd be fun became and. We always kind of say is that there is a title in every conversation. There's a song idea in every conversation you gotta do is listen so as we were leaving dinner that night heading back to the studio, we were having a conversation. My wife was there and we were like men. You know I don't I. Don't know how this is GonNa go we don't. Don't know who this B rex girly is. Don't know what kind of Song we're gonNA write data, and she just said Hey just go have fun and do what Y'all do, and if it's meant to be, it'll be and I. said will okay. We'll go do that and I think that's the title. We'll take that into the room tonight because we were just. kind of out of titles it had been a long week here, and we sort of given all we had, and so you know quickly said art I'm at least going to see. It's at tidal resonates with anybody, and we win, and instantly said that and they're like else like that, so so we get. We get back to the studio. We meet her she. She thinks that we're little big town. She doesn't know who floors Lana Zak oil. So it was, it was kind of funny we both had. Had to kind of tell each other who we were, and then it was one of those kind of special nights where we were just trying to channel who we were. We were really intentional about you. Don't country song. We're not gonNA. Write a pop song, UB! You let us be us, and let's just see what happens here unless it's a great song. We did it that night. We did a little Demo so David Garcia. Who was there that night and he just started playing chords on the piano. We said. Yeah let's with that feels. That feels cool. It's hard to get down to the details too much because it really did just feel like the song fell out of the Ska, and so when I when I think back on details. It's really kind of like I. Don't remember a whole lot other than it feels like those coach started. And then we started just. Be Ourselves in writing what we wonder, right? No need. Fast Singer here. Having that beat go with a piano and then letting a lot of vocals kind of carry it. was done like that to just obviously super repetitive. Win! It's a fresh boost. Simple sound in Kinda gets the heart of the message in the song across very powerful. You know one line in the middle, and then repeating yourself again I mean it was very simple song. which we also learned in our continuing to lean into that, hey, a lot of times simple is great simples better simple catchy you know simple resonates you start getting to songwriter, overthinking, everything and trying to be oppo at all the time it just. It's not real. It's not genuine nothing. That's the heart of this song is just the authenticity in the fact that we. Really weren't trying that hard, and it just kind of fell out. Mental. Note. Probably. Won't. A. It'll be. Just really really special song, especially for B., an and unexpected song, and just a true testimony of. Hey to show up. You never know what's going to happen. You might sometimes thank. You have a great Song Innis and it doesn't do what you expected to do, or you have a song you think is cool, but don't really have expectations for, and then it just blows up so. Just a really really cool story that changes our life again and changed bb's life and kind of put another shot of Adrenalin into her careers wail, and she was already doing great things so just really really cool to see and through that we were inspired to continue to show up in l. a., and and chase our dreams and see what happens I. Think one thing that. I think for both of us. That was interesting, also different for this song. This quote hit if you will most of the time if you're going to radio with with the song or the next single, no matter who you are artist. There's marketing dollars going out. There's content. There's all this stuff that's going with it to make it pop, but this one was i. let's put it out. See where it goes, and it just happened. It didn't need anything other than being a great song and just kind of that perfect timing. And, so I think for us. It was just like holy smokes. If that could do that like what what else could happen I mean. It's kind of wide open with creativity and the power of a song and. Power fans, power, radio, power, streaming, and the access that everybody has to songs and access to share them with their friends and family. We've always been known and have always loved to kind of. Record songs that feel good songs that are fun songs that we wanna Sing live every night. Songs at the fans can look forward to come into and letting loose, and I'm just having a good time, so obviously we have. Our holies are dirt and things that a little bit more depth to them and you know love. Songs were both happily married crazy in love with our wives. So that really resonates with us as well, but we also like to party. Man would like to have a good time especially when making music so I think the overall picture of our music and our catalog would kind of be somewhere in there. I think there's a lot of things that make a great song I think replay ability I think if you get done, and you want to hear that thing again. That says a lot, but has a lot to do with melody catching his hooking s I, think lyrically is important, but I think melody is just as important or maybe even more than lyric, because what's what you want is for that song to be stuck in someone's head and be be an earworm as we call it, but lyric also sometimes does that captures y'all marriage of. Paint the picture and just really helping that song resonate and and be relatable to the listener. We Really Love the concept of Song land the fact that it showcases songs and songwriters mean became moved to Nashville songwriters. That's what we thought we were do for career and it kind of turned into the artist thing, but ultimately were songwriters heart, that's our number one passion so to showcase to the world that not all artists write their own music, and they're actually a career called songwriting, and there actually is a lot of importance. Put on on the. We say without a great song. There's no foundation for anything so the song comes first before anything else and I think this show really does a great job of doing that. We came to song land to find a great song. We know the possibilities are pretty much endless with the amount of talent that Esther Shane and Ryan have these songwriters we love Shane, Legend, undeniable energy and talent. Obviously, he knows how to write a great country song. He knows great songs period. Could Casey must gray hit one day then he could read. An F. Geo hit one day and then he could do. Something out here in La for usher you know, and so I think being that versatile is pretty cool. He's just incredible I mean his personality breeze creativity, even just being around him. You feel more creative, and you feel more alive and energize, and we just love saying. Esther Dane. She's incredibly talented. Her energy is amazing, and she just got this fire. I think Shane said that she speaks and hooks i. mean she'd say something like that's a song. That's a song toe, so I think just the creative juices flow with her. Rise incredible, obviously so gifted talented. That's a no brainer, but just as a person. We've spent some time with him as well on this trip. To Watch how he navigates his own life, personally and professionally, he's an amazing family guy. He amazing songwriter, but then he also creates opportunities for tons of other songwriters in. It's just inspiring US I mean we've. We've so much from shine Estrin. Ryan, but Ryan. Just a really laid back. Cool do he really is a just in marble man? We look up to him to be honest and admire all the things he's done and hopefully have a lot more opportunities to make a lot more memories with him. Man is awesome. We were just excited to be a part of Song. Land. that. Was Tyler NBK of the Amazing Florida Georgia Line and I feel about them I love them so much so now we're going to hear from Winnie writer Griffin Palmer on the story in the inspiration behind his winning song second guessing and I will floored. I'm still floored by this song. I'm doing a dance song at my wedding. Pretty sure Griffin's going to come Florida Georgia line have to come. This is a perfect, perfect perfect song, but without further ado here to tell you his own story. Mr Griffin Palmer. Palmer on a songwriter from Pickering Ontario Canada and the Florida Georgia line episode of farmland with my Song second-guessing. Did grow up in a musical household. My Dad was a singer and bans all when I was growing up. He played in a little bit of a bunch instruments, so like my first little taste of playing instruments was from what he could teach me, and then I kind of caught the bug from there, and he was super supportive. Help me learn piano guitar drums everything. I actually do remember the first thing. I wrote. US probably like twelve years old. It was called girl of my dreams, and it was before I even dating. I didn't know anything about what I was writing and it's funny how you know. I don't remember like eighty percent of the songs of written over the years, but you still remember the very first one. That's probably the worst one. I got really serious about writing songs when I was around seventeen. or so I like made an effort every day to write something even if it was bad just to get better at it and try to carve out a little path for myself to get to where I wanted to go I was in college at that time in studying different things, but I never really serious about what I was studying I always knew that no, once I got my degree. It didn't really matter to me because I was gonna Chase. No the songwriting dream anyway. I was actually pretty aware about the whole song or any industry from Monagas Really Young, because my dad had a friend that had written songs for motown records like way back, when and for some bands like the eighties and stuff, and so you'd always like mentioned. That's what he did and that it's like a possibility to do. If I keep practicing and one day write songs for other artists so right from when I started writing songs I knew that this was an actual career choice. People are professionals at this and now choose the dedicate their life to it. So second guessing song that I submitted a Song Land Myself Jeff Warburton, Manetti wrote the song. Benza producer and also super talented songwriter Scott like a home studio. So that's where were working at A. Really didn't have any idea of what we're GONNA do for the day, so we were kind of just trying to get a jump on the work day, and you know, throw in some ideas around and I had been thinking of love song titles for a while. because. Obvious, twenty two and just graduated college, and the first batch of my friends were getting married, the people that had like high school sweethearts throughout college and stuff, and so some of these weddings were far away, and the other side of the country I couldn't make it to some of these weddings, and so I wanted to have something. I could at least send them. Some sort of Los on I can send them and say you know what thanks for inviting me, but I can't be their hope. You like this so guess. I was kind of just fishing around with the idea of having these love song titles. And I pitched this idea ahead to. Jeff and I said you know what if he wrote a song called second guessing the kind of makes people think of like the cold feet of wedding, her of a wedding, and not being sure about your future with this person, but instead you flip it like I haven't spent one second guessing since I met you and immediately, he was kind of like Yup. That's it. You got to do that so when we got to the house then like so what he wanted to do today. We were kind of like we're going to do this if you're down and immediately, he was down to, and it was kind of Nice just starting the day. Like right off the bat just complete. Going one hundred miles an hour at this cool song idea that we thought we had. Jeff Grabbing Acoustic Guitar and he started playing kind of like a waltz. He kind of rhythm. You're thinking. You know this type of song if it's inspired by. Couples that are getting married. It's got to be like a wedding song. So how do you? How do you dance to a wedding song? So he's kind of playing this little rhythm and we were kind of dislike envisioning in dancing at a wedding, doing like a first answer of mother, son, dance, or whatever so we kinda made the tempo just about what we felt. We would be doing if you're doing that. So? We just use that guitar as the beginning of the course. So we just kind of like singing at lot since you haven't spent one second guessing a bunch of different ways until we found something that was kind of like a lullaby almost since. You! Fill one-sixth guests. Beginning of the chorus we had that Hook. WHO's like super easy to sing, and it just kind of swaying seat, which is exactly what we wanted because? We wanted end goal to be that someone could slow dance to this, and we just use the same at the because we thought it was really cool. We knew that we had the hook. We knew where we wanted to end up, but in order to get there. We kind of had to paint the story of this person. That didn't really know that they were looking for. Love at the timer didn't know what they were missing out on intelligence, right in front of them, so that's kind of where those leaders came from. The I never knew I just had to find my direction getting lost in your eyes. So we just brainstormed. You know the best way to do that and what would serve the hook the best, and that's what we came up with since. You. Spill one. Guests. Lor knows try. Had Ma. Brew in every dirig-. Too many But. The rest. With one looking. You're eyes confessing. spill one second guessing. Theme and had the intention of the slow dance five. The chorus came together really quickly. But we felt like there needed to be something added in order to like tie a bow at the end of the chorus. Make it a bit sweeter, so we just had just sing this falsetto part. And we just auto tuned it put it up a whole octave, and then just blasted it out and reverb, so it was kind of a theory. Oh, like distant. kind of vibe noise more than actual vocal part. It, matched the vibe in the lyrics, and so we just had this cool melodic hook that we could like copy and paste and just swing around the whole song. And we knew that in order to make the course as cool as it could be. We had to have like really sweet storyline telling you know, versus so the first I. We thought okay will it's gotTa. Be You know two people seeing each other for the first time ever talking about since I've seen you haven't spent one second guessing, so we just kind of made eleven first sight story that this person walked in A. A room and just laid eyes on someone when he was least expecting it and you know he wasn't really ready for what he was about to fall into, but maybe she was the fire and ice lines, trying to paint this picture of these two people were complete opposites. One was ready for Love wasn't one was looking for someone that night one wasn't. The opposites attract kind of idea the first time you walked in. That fire. Only. was just had a whole. Thorough. A third. Of just two. And, then the last part of the song that we wrote was the bridge, so we really just wanted like a really poetic, really big statement. It's kind of like Olympic artsy, but also really substantial like I. Want you forever, but I'll settle for life I want you for? Reporter said off. And I think, we know that with that one. You're really sight of them got. You know when we writing some songs. We kind of really nit pick a melody. Someone will actually play the melody on an instrument before anyone things it, or are you just punch in a bunch of different versions and listen a bunch of times the fear? What you like best, but this one? I think it was more so about the lyrics and the in the story. We didn't really like nitpick. A melody at all. It was kind of like just what? The first or second thing we started singing, and then we never changed after that we just thought it felt really good, and we just kept it really lazy and really easy to sink. There was some harmonies the second and third course. But other than that is literally Acoustic Guitar Bit of. Sin. That, weird high harmony, and that's it so there's no drums, no anything. Ma Rogaine. Every direction too many eat. saw the. With the. Rats confess. Spend one SEC. Angus. And that's all. There was to the song I got me on. My experience on land was incredible from the second I got there I was just surrounded by so many cool people so many cool songwriters. Everyone was super supportive I didn't really have time to process it all you kind of have like a bunch. Your heroes all in front of you at the same time, so I think actually helps because you can't really focus on any one of them for too long, but obviously in the back of your head. You know that's. That's the singer one republic. He's written like every huge pop song now or Ester Dean. She wrote the soundtrack to every high school. Party is as. You know and Shane obviously is a legend. Countries fear which I work in and then Brian in Tyler Florida Georgia line. The first country record I ever learned from tobacco is F- Geo. They played my college homecoming. They're all these artists that I would look at it and just try to emulate for them to be there. Just preparing to no one of my songs was pretty amazing. Up What? Would, you bring today? Call second guessing. The first psalm hello. dozen lonely. Was Todd whole. Van Song Thorough. For. Just lose. The be the truth. The. Bird. After? Bro. Too many. Latte. One, second. Concept you. Finished performing I had this weird moment right looked, and everyone was smiling and like. freaking out a little bit and you giving me compliments. This stuff and I'm like Oh my God. This must went well Shane complimented the hook. He's like this is like my favorite hook on land so far and of all the songs we've heard on this show from the beginning from both seasons I've never. Been Mad at Hook that is out of this world. How has that been written? Congratulations on your? All I need to hear officer. It's just so excited. That's like the best compliment. A songwriter can get and either Shane or Orion. They said you know. Some of the lines didn't really make sense a line like fire and ice and I was saying like. You know I was ice and she was fire like I don't know if it's some sort of poetic way to describe how we were, but they were like that doesn't make sense. It sounds like you're fighting, but you're not. So I'm like okay gotta go. And Tyler and Brian were like this is a Nashville Song. You can tell the Nashville Songwriter wrote the song you know. He's a Nashville Songwriter. When you look at the and you think it's one thing, and then he brings it around a little on in. That was really cool to. Told that I was going to be Shane. In the genre that is. Predominantly. He's kind of like the hero figure, so if I was going to learn anything from anyone about what I'm trying to do, professionally, it was Shane so it was just really cool to know that I was going to have some time with him in a room to pick his brain a little bit. So going to that first session working on the song, I was a little nervous, not really sure what to expect I never really written with a writer, his big ashamed before, and so I was kind of expecting that Kinda can be his way a little bit what he says goes, but it was completely the opposite. It's like a complete co right. I contribute a lot. You contribute a lot. He loves some ideas I love some his kind of on the same wavelength in terms of like. Like we need to make less artsy and less like lofty and more commercial radio, more Florida Georgia line, so I'd listened to every Florida Georgia. Line song everyone so I kind of had a really good idea of what their stuff sounds like and lyrically where they kind of live, so it was just kind of bouncing ideas off each other, trying to keep the same sentiment in same like genuineness of the song, but make it a little more fun and add some typical F gl Drinkin- references. Though the aid from the A boo. We got to facetime Brian Tyler and just play them like the first draft of what we were thinking, and they loved a lot of it some of it. They didn't love and we just got to hear right away. They were kind of like. It's just a nice sweet sentimental song like that's okay that that's what it is, so we don't need to try to distract from that at all so just dive headfirst into that. Kind of take out the Canada alcohol drinking references. Six Week and it feels like a wedding song, okay? Got The monkey off her back that we had to take this nice sweet song, and try to cram it into like four Georgia line mold, so it was cool that they were willing to let the song just come what it was and not have to. Strip it down on the emotional side or sensitive side. We. Listen back to a bunch of like icon. Eq F GEL songs like dirt that has like this steel part. We want an iconic cool part like that that we can fly around. The song! The vocal part we had in the original demo. We were with Andrew to Roberts. He's another producer on the show, so for like twenty minutes Andrew, how's guitar and he's. He's playing this little riff in chamber. Just be like Nope, not it. No, not at playing other. When nope, that's not it. No, that's close, but not an after the fiftieth one and played something, and he's like Yep that that's it. One of the things that I really learned from working with. Shane is that it's okay to be picky about stuff. You know you're not being a nuisance. By, saying that, you don't like apart if it doesn't feel right because usually when it does feel right. Everyone in the room agrees like a lot of songwriting. It can't seem like Matthew now. It's like okay. You do this kind of thing, and you do this kind of thing and together they sound good, but then a lot of the special parts of Song are just like visceral like you can't. Can't explain why they work and why they feel so good. They just do and a lot of getting. Those parts is just trial and error, so no, sometimes it does take playing a guitar part. One hundred times until finally feels like that's the one that should be there, and you don't know why, but it doesn't matter because it feels so good that guitar part. I think it helped a lot. Once we did that. We kind of just added the big drum. Sounds that are from the GIO. I record and some big low end based just to thicken it up, so it wasn't such a sweet lofty sounding love song. That's basically all it took for the production. Once we had the lyric and put those little pieces in. It sounded more like a Florida. Georgia, line record. The second time I came out was completely different than the first time I was really nervous because I had played this song like one hundred times the other way for over a year, and then I had to get new lyrics and memorize them like a race, the old version from my head in a day and it was really hard. I couldn't get through the song off without messing up when I get nervous, I forget words which doesn't help the situation at all. So I went out, and the first three or four times I tried to play, and I couldn't remember the words so I play like ten seconds of the song. Mess Up. That have to stop everything. We'd reset. I'd start again and then the more I messed up. The more nervous I got, so it didn't help so eventually I was like. Can we put these awards up on teleprompters? Thing in there like sure so when you're seeing me performance, I'm actually reading a lot of the words off a teleprompter behind the judges because I couldn't remember the war. On Us Omar ever saw the cone of Mussa called. Out The door established short just. Good job, do the deepen our own thinking. Is Mayor. Does. Sti. Days in. Spain and Quest. Now I. Guesses? you. Know! NO DOUBT! Again. And now. and. Now. Gets. This. Using the teleprompter finally able to get all the way through the song which. Big, deep breath there. And I looked over at Shane I and I could see. He was like superstock Brian. Tyler. Talked about it. They make a comment about how you know. Before it was already great. The Hook was really great, but this is definitely more commercial, definitely more them and a definitely easier to follow and understand so you know that kind of checked all the boxes for what we're going for. And I was just really proud at that moment that even if they don't pick the song I think we'd good work and I was excited. Just basically be able to chill out now and just wait for my fate. I guess. And the song that we're going to say back to the studio and record is GonNa be. Second guessing. Couldn't believe it because he said they were coming in for a party song, they wanted like some big upbeat Radio Smash Sounding Song. And so I didn't know if second guessing was at all what they were looking for, but you know I was really excited that they picked it. They said you know great work. Really excited about the song cited to get back to Nashville and see what we can do with it, and it was so cool. Griffin's awesome I think with the help of Shane took that on to the next level, but I don't want to sell Griffin short either I mean he came in with the bones of that song, and with probably the toughest thing to do is do a really clever twists and play on words, and I think he already had that nail down soap. Up to Shane in Griffin as a team to sort of blew all the other pieces together, and we were highly impressed. Yeah, we're leaving with the love song you know feels like it's good for us. Now I feel like it could be good for us. Fifty years from those timeless classic and. Which to get studio and take one more deep dive, tighten up anything that needs titan getting our vocals on it, and just some time with getting no the song a little bit more. We tell them to come hang out in the studio in Nashville when we're recording his tongue, and hopefully will, and we can learn even more from him, but he's just an awesome got. My Name's Griffin Palmer I'm super stoked. You guys listen to new, Florida Georgia Line Song. I wrote called second-guessing. You. Know my door. Maribel Baru.

That i can't wait to see because there's like the audio version and the video version your digital deluxe version number one album here on earth. It's all coming together you know. It's one of those things that when we up the holidays. When Tyler hubbard sydney undivided. It's sorta changed our whole program of what we were going to do. you know we. We had a couple of singles. Were ever ready to go and over and ready to go off. The here on earth album found the song. Tighter senate to me and i and i asked him about it and he said well i want you to cut it and like well. If we cut the song i want you to do it with me and now is really the only time that we can do it. Because it's not gonna make as much sense down. The road to the does now now is when it's really sort of catharsis in needed but you must have had people i know you have who've come to you and said this song at this time was so instrumental in my life because y- music has a way of doing that and in all circumstances by the way i think that music has always been a healing balm a bomb for our soul in so many circumstances in our lives but in this particular circumstance it. It's it's a matter of what is the best choice either. Best choices to move forward with with finding ways that we can get along. That's what countries always been built on. That's what our foundations of always built on. Hell that's what families have been built on families. Don't even get along but we move forward with love and respect for each other respect for each other's opinion and that's what this means. Well i i love it love it love it love it. Love it on so many levels. And i can't wait to see this This whole compilation. 'cause like you said there's a lot of delicious little treats fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Is that shakespeare. Nope it's geico a. Yeah that shakespeare from one of his unpublished works be not for awakening and may give it. Though the berries for fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more no. It's from gyco 'cause they help save people money. Well i hate to break it to you but geico got it from shakespeare. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more gravity from the free solo projects. One of my favorite songs. I've ever written and one of my favorite projects i've ever gonna part and then to write a song with my wife and have it be be the closing credits song to one of my favorite movies. I've ever done the shack. And and what that means to people and let them book is meant to people in an intern. What that movie is meant to people and then in turn after that what. That song is meant to when i heard your sweet voice narrating it and then you know your part in it and then and then the the music it just came together so beautifully bid such a special message you know in a lot of ways that it takes you to places makes you open your eyes the things you may not have considered and to me. That's that's the most beautiful thing about film and art in general is when it opens your eyes the things that you may not have considered and put you in a position to question you know what are what. What are the real things in my life. What are the things matter. What are the things that really moved me. What are the things that really really are my terminal a lot of way how do you how do you what do you look at it as eternal life is families. That your legacy that you leave. What are the things that really make. You become aware. Wake you up to to what your soul. i think. That's what that book did think. That's what that movie did. And then we like to think that that that that's what our song did it'd be a part of it. So here on earth is available when ooh you're asking the wrong guy how i'll tell you when i because my sister sent me notes april sixteenth. You're smarter than you way ahead of the game. Tonight am here on earth ultimate edition in here on earth ultimate video edition so is every song. Did you do a video for every song every song. There's a few things you know. There's a few things on there that really warranted and really stood out. That said that raised a ten. That said that we needed to do something special for this song. So not every song has it but We've we've like. It was a good idea to put as much as we could digitally digital content on the record and how many of those have visual content of your beautiful wife. Shasha all my gosh tim. what are you thinking. Well i know. She can't not just that. She sings like an angel. But you you you done good. She is so faithful. Is is one of my favorite female recording artists of all times and even though she is a knockout and and physically just lovely to be hold and look at every time i've talked to her or met her she is as real down to earth as anybody you could ever meet on. She's the best. She's the best all around mean i i like brett. Farve told me when i got married. He said sony way output at your coverage not just physically but in every way she is spiritually emotionally as a human being as an artist in every single way she she exceeds me and that makes me want to be better. Whatever you guys are doing. You're doing you're doing it right. You're doing well and I think your your kids in your life as a testimony to all that we do have some great kids. I mean we are really proud of our daughters and we're proud of the strength that they have and when the way that are willing to stand up for themselves not people and for that's that's a testament to the appearance or kids having the freedom to feel to do the things that they feel right. What different paths have they decided to to pursue Magyar middle daughter is initiative per master's program at stanford which is fantastic. And we're so proud of her and then our youngest is in new york city and She's an actress Sort of working a job. Now is a production assistant on a on a cable e- program and waiting for the world open up so she can pursue her career. So all slackers. Just you know not really doing anything. Probably the slacker in our family to try to get up every morning and motivate myself. Yeah yeah that's a slacker. Is exactly the word that i would attach to you. Tim mcgraw not not when i look at all the projects you've been involved with an all the music and all the charities that you support and and just all the goodness that you pour into the world you are anything. But a slacker. Kosh feel so blessed and fortunate and and You know we all know that anything good comes from working hard at anything good. We'll go away if you don't work hard. So we we. We believe in working hard in our family and and trying to do the best that we can't everybody around and it's been tough years but a tough year for everybody that works for us. It's been a tough year for road. Crew been a tough year for our extended family so We we in humble and a lot of ways to see out there and see the hard work and the resilience and and the care that people take each other. You know when when we started when all this things started happening and everybody's trying to social distance and trying to get music to body and still try to to try to be present. I mean how many times have you gone on instagram. And seeing some an artist singing in front of a fireplace. And i'm guilty enough to say that i've done it probably five or six. I feel like we're all kind of in this limbo and in this negativity. The and if i can pour joy and pour some god's love and faith and goodness into the world for an hour an hour day You know i wanna do that and been creative to see how people have come together especially the artistic community to come together and put music forward and try to uplift people spirits during all this time. But i can tell you you feel the same way. None of us wait till we can go play lives. Please please please let us get back to our life because you can watch movies you can do all sorts of things but there is nothing i mean there is nothing that replaces live music and net collective experience that that happens when everyone sort of signs this mutual contract that they're going in and suspending reality for two hours and having a great time and boy do we need that. What did we miss that. And i think that once. We have a chance to do that again. I think everybody's gonna go see everybody even people they don't like they're going to go see just because i want to hear live music to get well. I can't wait for that. Thank you tim for spending this time with us. I know you got a million things to do. Please tell your family. I send my blessings. I send my love and i just i just love you. I appreciate you so much. I i pray that god just blesses your heart with the deepest desires of your heart. Well thank you delilah. Always enjoyed to talk to you.

This new dog that we adopted pretty smart in that she can jump the fence outside. She's figuring how to do that but secondly she has like a room but it has a sliding door on it. So she's figured out how to get the door over and over again to give it a little bit of space and take her nose and open it or the bulldogs. Stanley can't do that. Because there's no is flat so she so we okay fine. We had a crate for when she was a puppy that we've now turned into basically door shape and we put it up over that crack now. She's figured out how to push that to the side knocked the door open in the news. We can't keep her in a room. she's not going to be contained. Yeah they're doing pretty good without fighting. We got too late last night with no incident that played together perfectly all day. But then when there's like a toy or there's a treat she's hogar she guards it so much and she took stanley's toy in stanley with like toy bag and then our home apart again.

Salmon is like little cupcake cups with no crust and then just poured the piping in there and baked it. And it's so good. I'm like these are this is genius. That'd be really cool if you taught her to love to bake because then you benefit. Yeah like if she do stuff by herself. Yeah well she wants to start selling it of course and she had these always and so my husband and i were talking your last night. We're like so. There's this one little cupcake thing and we said. How much do you want to sell it for. And she was like well. Let's just go around to the neighbors and fifteen bucks. We're like for the whole thing. And she's like no per thing in now since the whole concept of money it was like no. We just have to tell her. Nobody's gonna pay fifteen dollars for cupcake but yes. She is are trying to think of ways to make money all right. Thank you very much a would go check in. With eddie eddie. I'm on a mission guys to find myself a four leaf clover yesterday when i got home my whole yard was covered and clovers. And i'm like. I'm going to find a four leaf clover. I spent four hours a not all in a row before hours yesterday. Completes the boys are playing basketball. I'm like look and look and look and look and then one. Today's is that right saint patrick's day no more see. I didn't know that so today. I'm getting back there. And i'm going to be busy. I wanna find one. Why just. Because i've never found one. That is that being busy. How busy is four hours. Four leave cook. My boys like to play basketball. And they're like watch this this shot. That's the fact that i'm outside. I'm be like oh of our guys and keep looking. It's a win for me. All right thank you very much. What's well my father-in-law's really starting to thin me. I every time we talk on the phone or facetime with him. He makes a comment. Hey thought about getting rid of that car yet. Hey thought about getting ratto. Five ultimate yet. you know that all five ultimate is not going to last very long like hey man karston ron's what's the problem with. It is it because his grandkids maybe his grandkids and his daughter ride in it. And so he's maybe a little bit worried but yes it has two hundred eight thousand miles on it and i just. I'm like hey man. Don't worry it's still running. But he makes a comment every single time he slides in that little about ovalles ultima. Have you had any incidents with the car whereas breaking down or anything. no. I mean not for years. I haven't had any problems with it. You know you just do tune-ups every once in a while. Oil change. Get those tires balanced. The rotated runs like a charm. Well i'd like to inspire you okay. If you can get thing up to two hundred fifty thousand miles. I think they'd probably go. I think this is someone. We'd like to do a little blow work with like the new car company. If you have two hundred thousand miles we get some instagram ads. tv commercial. Because i've kept her in good shape she is looking l. Don't tease him with a tv. Commercial while i'm saying i think they'd want to work with them if he kept car. Going for two hundred and fifty thousand agree but it's dangling out there he just said. I'm going to get a tv commercial. Go about i'm gonna be on tv you then. What are you going to say. I think there's something to that all right. Good luck okay friends. Let's open up the mailbag a male. Hello bobby my name is tracey. I'm twenty years old. I recently started working in a grocery store and have a really big crush on a co worker. But i'm not sure if asking out a co worker. These days is an option. I normally wouldn't hesitate to ask her out. But i don't wanna causing you drama. I don't want to get in trouble. I feel like she likes me to flirts back with me but my friends told me that i should just forget about it because if it doesn't work out then i'll be out of a job at this point. I don't care that much about the job. I can get another job. But it can't find girls that i really like. So what do you think i should do. Signed trae been there. When i was twenty two and austin i dated people that worked at the radio station. Twenty one and twenty two year old turns. It wasn't a big deal at the time but it's just a slightly different environment. Now i would say as long as the ranking system is the same if you have the same job on one of you. Don't oversee the other one. That's where the trouble comes in if you're her boss or she's your boss. That's where you can get in trouble. That's the one thing i would say to avoid to is. Make sure that it's allowed. And if you check off both of those boxes then you're free to do it. It's probably not gonna work out. It's probably gonna be uncomfortable. But that's a lesson you gotta learn here. He said he's willing. He's not worried about finding another job. Yeah most relationships don't work out meaning it took me a million to get to my good one. The one that's gonna last me forever but it did. It took me a lot of unsuccessful wins so just playing the is dated dudes. Yeah i mean especially at twenty. You're i. I don't know where it's going to go but i i say you ask her out if it's allowed if you're the same level and if the job allows it go for it if there's no rule about it go for it just don't tell your job keep quiet if your boss. You can't do that. no no. no what about the people you dated and then like when you broke up awkward because you start to see him every day eddie. Yeah worry about right. it was it sucked. Yeah but again. I was twenty two years old. I didn't know any better and is a good experience for me. You know my grandma. Don't poop or you eat. that's see. That's what i was basing it on I would tell you that too. But you're not gonna listen to me say don't poop where he like as a person i would say you know if you like the job. Don't do it but if you don't care about the job and you're only twenty. Who cares and he already said. It's been hard for him to meet people and he finally found somebody that he's interested in. I'm all for trae. My final verdict is as long as there's no hierarchy were one of us over the other and as long as the job allows it go for it ask her out get dumped. Feel awkward learn life lesson. That's the way it's gonna play. Yeah that's the way it's going to play out probably go for it. And that's the mailbag closing up. Dan was mailbag. If you want to send us an email. Morgan what are they do. Mailbag bobby bones dot com today saint patrick's day so i will play a country artist. Wishing you a happy saint patrick's day just named the artists.

We'll let me let me re. The story is men with testosterone. Are less generous guys with less testosterone or more generous and he said that proves he has more testosterone than me. Because he's not generous. And i am. That's basically what the story was. Okay crystal europe. Go ahead That's not true. My husband actually got tested a few years ago and he has not generous at all and he was sold strictly by the doctor that eighty year old men have more testosterone than he does know. Let me walk through this hold on. He's not generous at all but he has a lot of testosterone. He has noticed it. W went after your husband here on this call.

Okay crystal thank you for the call. I think your husband may be a little irritated you later today. I'm not i great for you called the show but if someone calling way bobby is not generous and has no don other national show. His own jeep crashed into a building. Wisconsin and the incident is being blamed on the dog in the jeep. The police say that they were sent to an art museum. Where jeep had crashed hard into the building. The vehicles owner told police. That jeep been part of the gas station. While he went across the street to a bakery when he came outside the jeep it went across and crashed into the building becau- because of the dog the dog had knocked it out of gear. Are there any listeners out. There who've had their dog in the car. Because i don't think that this is extremely uncommon. Now i mean i feel like yeah this i could see how this happens easily for my dog just back and forth the whole time but i have an automatic. I don't drive a standard. Anybody has a dog out there. That's knocked your car outta gear or has caused some kind of crazy damage. We got our carpet cleaned in the living room. Last night i guess yesterday late afternoon. But i was gone. I went to valdosta georgia yesterday evening to digital speaking so i left and the carpet because it had been raining. Both dogs have been outside. I came back and it was extremely clean except for one spot. I was like. Oh no what happened. She was well. The carpet got fully cleaned. The guy spent like an hour over here cleaning it and as soon as he left. Stanley vomited right there. Oh right on the clean carpet. He could have picked somewhere else. They love to do that. They always want to do it on the carpet. And i don't know why vomit control a vomit now and she was like i'm so that was like well if it had been pooper p that's probably controlling it.

I was talking about last night at low barbecue. little salad. i. I know that is a good day. It was only the only thing available. And i ate it moderately d- sometimes that's all it's available you've got to do it. Let's do more news here. We go bobby's story. Tiger woods has been released from the hospital in los angeles continuous recovery from last month. Horrific one car accident at his home in south florida. He was in the hospital for a month crazy. Which is wild wonder what the hospital is going to be Probably no big deal. He'll just opened wallet. Nobody a few coins out but yeah he suffered a serious injuries in a car crash in southern california he says i'm so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that i received over the past few weeks. He is going home back to florida. Yes finally severe weather heads to the south. Many parts of the south. If you haven't already you should batten down the hatches. I follow a lot of arkansas news on twitter. Because i go from there. I lived there still a part time. and so they were getting hit hard last night even some today. still so from arkansas alabama. A severe weather outbreak is predicted Southern missouri. Florida panhandle louisiana tennessee. All of that so you probably already know this the days of having to find out on the radio what the weather is but you know just a heads up to everybody out there. Things go real bad. Hopefully we can happen and help if we need to forgive me for asking what is batten. Down the hatches being like on a on a ship by down the hatches. I would think. Close all the hatches. Water doesn't get a flood plain storms coming over. I don't know. I've never say i would think that hatches is from a boat or submarine get ready for craziness. Yeah like close everything. Because it's time to go. Michael you look at that up because we know i know what it means. But i don't exactly know the root of baton downs and what's baton through. Never heard those words anything all right. Batten down the hatches. It's to secure ships hatch especially when rough weather is expected or just in general prepare for difficult situation or crisis. So you're like a captain right now. Is waters coming phrase. Okay nice nice word flex on this googled it. Let's go over to michael in georgia. Michael what's going on with you. Not much are y'all doing morning it's going on. I had another dog story forty right. I was sitting in the mcdonald's drive through love lapdog beside me. Related opened a window dugway across my lap and to know he jumped. He jumped into the restaurant. Chain right drive through window inside. I gotta out tripping everybody jumping on the tables everything he gets his mouth on. So what did they do. They threaten the cops on me and they banned me from coming back to that store. Owner accidents still. I'm assuming stupid you don. Your dog walked out the front door and jumped in the car and drove off right. Yes did they ever call the cops on you. I didn't stick around long enough to find out. That is the funniest thing that's ever happened with adult. Where you halfway laughing and halfway like oh my goodness oh my goodness oh my goodness i was laughing the whole time because that will be a helpless feeling if your dog jumps into the drive through. Did your dog eat a bunch of fries or meet. like where did he go. First he went to the fries while the prize are on the ground. Hamburger buns meat everywhere and imagine. If they're workforce dog you don't you don't see the document all of a sudden there's just the dog in their own michael. That's a great story. Appreciate that call. Man have a good day. Yes sir you are. i see later. I do want to talk about this because sometimes we walk into a room. At least i do. And i go. How did they get in this room. Like what in the world did. I do to get me in this room. You ever do that. Yes all the time. Then you go back and you walk back to your other room and as you sit down and remember you're like oh i now i remember and then you go back at that all the time. It's the weirdest thing You talk a lot about dr into subtypes you're like i don't even remember how i got here. What how long. It took me. But yeah i do it all the time you drive places and not and you don't remember the drive at all. Know why you're going. Yes there are times where i'm subconsciously driving and i end up at a place. Never get somewhere in my car and go so. Apparently our brain is working overdrive. When that happens and we're we're so focusing on something else that when we get to our spot we've forgotten that really recent thought of to go there. It's not us getting older. It's not forgetting things so this is just a. Oh thank good. I mean we're all doing so that gives me right for it. It is that we have too much going on that. We're kind of blocking down the small recent things and we're focused on the heavier things that are weighing on us at the time. So if that happens to you don't blame it on getting old. Don't blame it on getting senile. it's okay it is absolutely okay. It happens the people of all ages. So there's that also lost her wedding band news Well so right now. I'm wearing the one my mom's because i inherited that from her. But because yes i have a the band part not the engagement ring. Thank goodness but i have little tiny bands that i stack with it and one of those which does have little teeny tiny diamonds on. It flew off my finger. And i don't know where it is so i i was washing my hands and the stack keeps them altogether. When i was washing my hands one flew off and my we found it on the floor right away. My daughter luckily spotted it. But that means the one that was holding it in. Its gone somewhere. I don't know where we've looked everywhere. And i was at the kitchen sink so who knows i check down. The disposal is so discussing the minute in. I am terrified to go down there. But the minute i thought my ring was down there. I was like i didn't think twice. My hand. went straight in there. i'll like swirling around the already be gone though i had turned it on because it's the disposal so i don't know guys i retrace my steps.

She was doing a fourth grade work at the time obviously, and and she kept coming to me with math problems assist you to go ask your mom come to me for English and history, but math and science like I'm out.

Here. Is Andrew from California more neo just wanted to get your advice bobby me and my girl currently in a long distance relationship and I know you and Caitlyn were at that point. But I want some advice we're both young. We're both trying to live it up so. Advice would be great you. My vice in it was the first ever long distance relationship. I've ever done. We always had a plan next. We weren't ever just living separately going on wonder when we'll see each other again. Even if it was far away, we had a plan. We were looking forward to when she would come here. I would go there. But then again, we got hit with corona pretty quick. 'cause we dated for a few only a few months. and. Then she was just kinda trapped here which in the end was the greatest thing to ever happen to me. So, my only advice to you sound like you're young guy is just make sure that. You know whenever you leave you already have your next little spot planned. Because you looking forward to something always otherwise, you feel like you're. Kaelin just to come to town. and. Then she would get here and then start to get sad already because you'd have to she knew she'd have to leave in a few days and I was like, wait a minute don't get sad until your accent leafing. Yeah, I. Do that like just be happy for a second. Yeah and so and then I take her to the airport and I would talk with. I was like hey. Sad you're GONNA come back. We already have an extra plant like that's why I worked for us, but they don't get sad enough. You come back in three weeks or two weeks, and then you're gonNA get stuck here. And then you're gonNA live out of one single small suitcase for three months. Yeah. That would be my advice. They're Andrew. Good. Luck. It can work. It's tough. It can work. But there's also got to be a bit of a plan for how to end the long distance as well. We've got gotta be an instant means let's do one more here. This is heather in North Dakota wanted to find out if you and Caitlyn and your own song and your song is a couple. We have a few I mean I. Heard I haven't really talked about this on the level of just picking a song but I've, I've made a list here the first time we kind of went somewhere together and she knows every ninety country on every word every night he's country song, and so we were. Brooks and Dunn Neon. Moon had oh I know what was happening Eddie and I were practising because we're playing with Brooks and Dunn and I was learning making sure I knew every word of the song because he felt like you do until you have to sing it. Right, and you're GonNa go and then we just Kinda. Say That song reminds me of her because just sang it for an entire weekend. So that's not our song, but that's one. Also, the Duleep Song don't stop now reminds me of her when we first met. Don't come. Don't. Mean 'CAUSE I didn't even love the song she liked the song and she went to the same church to a leaper. And so. That was cool. That is cool and that's the big one. Jesse and the rippers. Forever. There's Why, why this? Is the play it all the time and be like this is my song which was kind of kidding but not really. And also who doesn't love full House here Jesse's playing this at the wedding. Tam. but find the one that I would say is our song. Now, because we've picked or had this conversation. And this song because. The she says that she when she knew. That I was the one for her I took her to a Mat Kearney concert and we were in Oklahoma City because I surprised or by going to the Oklahoma City thunder game, and then Mat Kearney was playing. He's he's a friend of mine and so after the game we went over and watch the back end of his show and hung out with him afterward. But he played this song at the very end of it and she said when during this song is when she knew that I was the one and it's nothing left to lose. So, and then we listen to that all the time to we know all the words to it, and that was a real special time for us, and then in the song to he talks about moving to Nashville, you know and probably in her life to she's thinking like Oh my gosh, I live in Nashville well, that whole song to like go for it. Yeah. Like there's we got nothing to lose. Let's just go get. So yeah that's a jam to wherever you in that since you know where you were like the game and the concert if that's when she had the moment of knowing. Where were you at that moment? Already knew you knew too well yeah because I played the whole job and not planning a trip like that for somebody that I'm not Berserk. Over. So. Yeah and she said, I, haven't seen it. I'm going to ask her for it that she took notes on her phone that night on how she felt because she didn't want to let that of go by and she wanted I guess maybe when she gets mad emulators you can go check Diary but I think and I can ask her. I think that's probably our if we had to sit and vote on a song i. think that's it. Nothing left to lose Matt Corny. But those other ones remind me of her lot neon every time I heard the on now it's like I just think about that's cool. Yeah. Do you have a song? Not like if you're first dance at your wedding, but like a song that you. You and your husband I started being together. It was like your song I mean ours is anything we first started dating. He loves Texas country. So. And Pat Green. Ended up being one of our songs but I would say anything Jerry, Jeff Pat, Green Robert, earl keen, and even some other guys that aren't as known as those Texas country guys. So yeah. The whole format as you're even now. All the Texas country. Anything with a red dirt and it is our song. No. But I will say like even Parker mccullum Song that's out. Now when it comes on the radio instantly has that Texas country feel and I think of him already with that song and he he loves it but there's not a song. That I can think of right now unless it's crazy but Eddie. I think ours kind came later we had our early ones but I think fix you now has become our song because of just the. Roller coaster ride that our marriage has been ups, downs, UPS downs, and we've always just kind of ended up being there for each other. So won't fix. You comes on we both just get really quiet and say Gosh I love this like we do to station are you listening to her? She's not. On our playlist. Alternatives to never play they don't always like hateful stuff now. Just to.

Sammy's pile of stories when it comes to traveling obviously pilots and flight attendants, their experts and one flight attendant went viral on Tiktok with some of her top hotel hacks of what you should do when you're checking in Tier Room and some of these I had literally never thought about. So, for safety reasons, she said to never say your room number out loud in the lobby or hallways. In case someone is listening also for safety. Make sure there's no one behind you as you enter your room and then check places like behind the curtains and under the bed for anyone who might be hiding there. Have you ever done that? I don't send my an umbrella for that reason. Okay. But I mean and then someone's behind me I won't go. That's an if someone's right behind me on my room. Okay. But if you checked a curtain or under, I've never lived under the bed ever like under. Always deadbolt the door, remove the sheet. What happened to this flight attendant all this. You have a traumatic experience as a horror movie safety stop, and now we're getting into germ type stuff, remove the sheets, and inspect the corners of the bed for bedbugs never use the bed cover decorative pillows because they do not get washed, keep your luggage off the bed to keep your clean as possible, and then this is a fun tip if there's fridge in your room used the hotel ice bucket keeping.

Wrong. This is Tricia. From Saint Louis Hey good morning. I'm just listening to Thursday show on the podcast about amy and Caceres. TV My kids are eighteen and twenty. They still don't have a television there. There's just no need they can watch come out with family don't need. The bedroom no need to watch I I would never give my children television in the room. So stay strong me. Okay. So Amy's actually brought in her daughter's case for having a TV yeah this is you said I'm going to build a case and present to you. So this is her presentation. Okay. Here is Amy's thirteen-year-old daughter. Oh. This is should have a TV my room. I'm responsible and I have the perfect space in my room. And they would have me sleep in I do all my homework and that given invite mom just. To sleep with me. To spend time together. And I can get to college with me. Lotta great reasons their shows very responsible. She has. So what did you tell her? I don't have an answer. I say, yes of course you do. Of course you then you know. Father, the euro, your bones, what do you do about the son that has a right across the hall gets of everything and then says, well, how come so she gets a TV and I don't get a TV earn. In, what has she done to earn be responsible? She told you supposed to do homework. She told you because she has the perfect space on her all. Yeah it's a great one. College she saved looking for the future. Do you feel like you have to. If you give one kid something, it has to have a to now we're really working on that, but it's it's not an issue with her. She's like I don't understand why he acts this way I don't I don't I get happy for him. If he gets something that I, don't have but he doesn't his brain isn't there yet. Can you tell him when you turn twelve or thirteen you'll also get a TV in your room. WHOA WHOA WHOA. WHOA. Band aid for now, you can decide later, but it gives you a couple of years buffer. The tea in the room because you can regulate that like you can't anything else. But then she. Does have one put in her recording. This is Joe during conversation because she you know that's what she wanted to do her presentation but she also told me she's like and then on Saturdays mom I won't have to leave my room. It will be amazing. No, we I like family time I need her to leave her room. I. Think as long as she meets your requirements, you should be able to have a TV she's doing her homework, and if she starts to fall off you, you can take that away from her because it means a lot to her I didn't have a TV in. Shouldn't matter should matter. Or Hey I don't what is your? Oh, he does not think she needs to TV in the room at all. We have all kinds of TV's in our house for she can go in a common area and be amongst other people. Sometimes, you just WanNa Watch TV by yourself. I do I don't know where she got this TV can help me sleep thing. ME. Lobby. Anything. So when are you, GonNa. Make your decision right now. No. Not Right now, this is like a big big decision. I, do not take this lightly at all. There's so many things to consider and I feel like Eddie said the other day his son has a tablet. And can watch that and there's you know she has access to her Netflix's account on there, and so maybe I just say you can have more freedom to watch whatever on your tablet during certain hours but she's a night owl.

Nominee people would foster a cancer ridden dog just a little time to live by Jenny Leach and her husband decided to make a promise that every day this dog had left would be a good one twelve years old theo was abandoned in bad shape. But someone found him in the parking lot of a Walmart but the oh, still seemed like a happy dog they say so the couple was like, all right. We're going to give them some good experiences. So that was the beginning of the IOS bucket list which started off simply with ice cream, which is a good one though. Is comes awesome. Then getting a burger at drive-thru chewing a fresh bona butcher shop. Sounds like my bucket list to. Jenny Leach posted daily adventures on facebook and soon discovered that previously sick and abandoned dogs were being taken care of the same way other people too and so people donating bucket list ideas and items the riding a Mustang convertible. So An and it went on and on you know the ended up passing away. But man they put them out in style. Yeah that's all. That's awesome. Right the butcher bone that would be a place.

Eddie semi-in video of a three year old girl who was lifted in the sky because she got caught a kite crazy. Let's say it's like a show or whatever, and they're just keeps going all over and I guess she grabbed onto it and the kite tooker up. It says that three year old girl was lifted up one hundred feet in the sky after getting caught on a giant kite. Footage from festival showed a group of helpers struggling to contain the giant link of Orange Material as they were battered by heavy wins the crowd cheers at the kites I taking flight but then screams of horror happened whenever the little girl got caught up and started soaring with the kite. I mean she is launched into the yard and she's whipping back forth because the kites just kind of going left right left right up down. You know what it looks like. It looks like if you put a jet pack on your back people go. They can't really contain themselves. That's what it looks like. and. So and then everyone's pointing and trying to run underneath her almost like a tranny. If she falls, we're GONNA catch her I. Mean She's going all over the place that they can't quite get under her by the way. She's okay. She spent only thirty seconds which had to be on. The I mean I know that physically she's. Emotionally and mentally like and how awesome her to hold on with thirty seconds. That's to be wrapped up at all. She's holding on because as soon as the kite came down for a second, they grabbed her that's crazy. I can't even hold onto a rope swing over the water sometimes she's holding onto a kite. The crowd's cheers starting to scream. She weighs twenty pounds. She went as high as one hundred feet in the air. She spent thirty seconds being tossed around before finally being lowered close enough for them to grab the bottom of the Chi- and then pulled her to safety. That is crazy man. and. I mean, she flipped upside down her head feet or above her she's holding onto the kite. Wow. Well, speaking of floating David Blaine has postponed his balloon ride that was going to be one of the big stunts. WHO's seen this? Where he's GonNa Float three point five miles into the sky while holding fifty two big balloons. and. He's just GonNa hold them afloat three and a half miles a straight up he scrapped plans to soar over the Hudson River. And so he's not going to New York City but now they're going to go to the Grand Canyon area. To qualify for the stunt, he had to obtain his pilot's license interesting. The FAA deemed has fifty two helium balloon flying stunt at eighteen thousand feet as an experimental aircraft. Youtube will strain the live event. With this. I'm going to ask you. Know what your answer should be, but are you hoping there's a bit of drama with it but he lives. Because we don't watch crazy stunts for them just to get pulled off with no hiccup, right? Like you don't want to the high wire walking on for him just a walk in be fine. You want them to slip a little bit but still hold right. I don't really don't know I, don't get nervous I'd rather just go just as planned. It's no fun when he crosses the wire without slipping still did something cool I. Liked if they know they're not going to slip still talk to slaves they got A. Great. We still named Gimme something. Made me feel a little bit where I'm going to who other since David Blaine though is a magician? Is this real I think this is a magician. Being Like an artist he has, there's a name, a performance artist. Okay. So it's not just magic. So I don't think this is magic. There's a groom joking that twenty twenty hasn't been best year and then lightning strikes at his wedding. His name is Aaron Him and Denise in the middle of their outdoor ceremony, and here's the audio of him. I don't know what to make lightning striking a quarter mile away during our wedding vows I. Take it as a good sign that we didn't get electrocuted. Let's face it. Toy has not been the best. Did Not like that. Oh, my gosh. Wow. Guys. Boost crazy. I give you this too before we get into. Blake. Shelton here here are the top three songs and country music this week number three it's Thomas. Written friends be alight plays in the Mega Day. He will be performing on. Friday. Show this week. Number two is luke combs Lebanon new. The number one song is Florida Georgia Line I love my country and The number one hip hop song is de baby featuring. Roddy Ridge is. Course. You like that one. I. I guess I've never heard anything other than the fifteen seconds tectonics. The number one rock song from Italica with the San Francisco symphony all within my hands. With. That's the big songs of music this week amy, did you ever like Metallica? No I was never metallica fan. Yeah because I heard they worship the devil. As what they sit around down what church they were like don't metallica worships the devil because everything was black and so I just never got into Metallica. Did you like metallica black album was one of my favorites the devil? I guess that was the number one unforgiven. What else also nothing else matters does are all good song? Forty, nine days until lunchbox goes to spend the night in the Vasilij. Murder House. It started as a segment where we just heard this was a house. You'd go sleep in commented on it. If we thought that ghosts were real and murder houses doing a listener call and go I didn't think it was real but I stayed in it now I believe it and so we're going to send lunchbox off and he's going to spend the do we know who with yet? No we have not vote anybody solid confirmed I mean I've had people reach out a lot of listeners but I don't know who's going to go with me. Okay. Well, right now we have johnny WHO's a tour guide at the basilica axe murderer house a Johnny how are you? I'm living the dream. How are you guys do I'm pretty good. So am I saying that right. Melissa picks. I've heard it a million ways. That's actually pronounce the Liska okay, the BALLISTA axe murderer house. Now for our listeners that maybe you're just hearing, this is the first time what happened at this house and when did it happen? June ninth nineteen twelve A family of six came home with two little girls that stayed the night next day they were all found murdered with an axe eight total Investigation, into went on for five years. In nineteen eighteen minister confessed but he talked about voices telling him to kill and shadow giving him the axe he was acquitted of all charges. So at this point, it's Iowa's oldest unsolved crime. If this happened now. This would be the biggest news story in the world right. Huge. It'd be unbelievable toback. Then I guess there really was no way detract stuff happening like this. What do you think happened Johnny you know now the library Congress has put all these old newspapers online we're finding about twenty years of axe murders that are very similar. so tainted the thought is. Early traveling serial killer Oh. Wow. So maybe somebody was coming through town. They decided to stop by there in in Iowa and do some ax murdering and this just happened to be the house. Yeah I mean there's no motive there was money left not touch. But every crime scene is very unique with me being covered or. Rob Bacon laid on the floor. You know food laughed at the table. It's all kind of the same 'em how? When you're touring through this and you take people to the house. Do you ever hear the ghost like the children's voices on a tour? Absolutely I've been here over fifteen years and I've seen stuff happen daytime nighttime I mean there's no rhyme or reason to it it just. It and you believe in your whole heart that there are ghosts haunting this house. When I came here I'm a history guy and I made fun of the ghost stuff relentlessly. I thought it was the dumbest thing I've ever heard until I had. My experiences and then I start staying the night and I've done over four hundred overnights alone in the house trying to be bunket and. It's creepy. Do you have a relationship with the ghosts? One at you know as crazy as Norman Bates is it sound? After a while you feel kinda protective of what's over there and I'm not really sure that the family is even there hunting in a place I. Almost think house itself has comping itself like a road with rose red type deal. So in the thirties and forties they're doing say on says in the House. Trying to find the killer that route. Who knows what that's inviting in, and then in ninety four, they opened up for overnight investigations people are coming in trying to get stuff to happen. That's just like flipping a light switch on. The stuff that happens in the house. Isn't something a little kid from nineteen twelve would be doing. Nintendo, you hear Nintendo in the back on. No. No Nintendo but we've got voices and French we've asked questions and French and got replies in it. Right Yeah. What can lunchbox expect when he comes to spend the night. I've had objects move Terrorist Rock. Voices Footsteps Doors Open and Slam. Mental manipulation. Joke wait somewhat like lunchbox could get manipulated mentally. For sure absolutely. It's got a very amityville quality going on. He's he's concerned that one of the ghosts is GonNa follow him back home to be with his wife and kids any chance of that happening. No. Because you know like every night, they have a revolving cast overnight to mess with if they were to come to my house, it'd be like. Oh. Great. He's watching Netflix for seven hours straight. That's fun. You know it'd get boring. Is Johnny but the comedy love it. Lunch. How do you feel about after hearing the feeling memorial I mean like? Do they today. Get Mad at you because like. We're going into their home where they were murdered I mean, are they mad at the people that come and stay there because that's what I feel like they're going to be mad at me. I think they. House will give you exactly what you're looking for if you go in. Yellen and provoking and Hidden Hornets Nest with a baseball bat you're, GONNA get stung if you go in respectful. You're gonNA have respectful time. You go in guns a blazing baseball. Swinging blindly we'd we. Are you scared. Do you want to ten on being scared Man. This is a terrible idea. This is awful I. Feel like goes. Oh my gosh. He said they could manipulate my mind. What are they gonNa make me do. Well. I'll leave that one up to the researching on the Internet. There's been some incidences at the house, but the people in we get upset that you guys are keeping the hell's going where people were murdered in making money off of it. You know when I came here. I was very on the fence about that. but after you know being a history guy up and everywhere from Gettysburg plantations, trailer tears, Salem, it's it's all kind of bad history but we have to learn from it. You know what I mean. and. This inspires a lot of we do a lot of Supreme Court Judges Law Enforcement Colleges for continuing education. You know and. People that come here. Just curious. Well and he said. It may not be the family that is. Coming, there, the the people may have brought in other. Okay. Great here. I mean I get it but Yeah all right listen. Johnny we appreciate it looking forward to talking to you again as we get closer to lunchbox coming up there Thank you for your time and. Kind of creepy to have this for job not GonNa lie to you. For sure absolutely. All right, Johnny Talk to you soon. Bye. Bye. Holly. And Maria markets together. We're exploring the margins of history and specifically at the intersection of history and true. Crime. Welcome to the criminality podcast. Our first season of the show is all about lady poisoners mystery has not been kind to ladies. Women have been marginalized. They've been vilified their falsely accused and often misunderstood time and time again but sometimes women take power for themselves and sometimes they do it through murder. Some of these women absolutely were guilty but some of them were probably labeled as criminals with that was not the case and all of them were viewed through societies lenses sitting at this intersection of being both killers and the fairer sex but how many were just misunderstood. Listen to criminality AH, on the iheartradio APP. Apple podcasts for wherever you get your podcast. If your husband said I just don't WanNa wear my wedding ring. Any more would you care a little bit? I would wonder why? Because why? Why have you been wearing it for this many years and now suddenly it bothers you it's uncomfortable. Almost one third of new husbands are choosing not to wear a wedding ring. In the room here unless you walk through warriors, no editorials of course, have it on right now scoop Steve You're yours. Yeah every day but we're without it. Got It on and listen. That's about here to one of thirty, which is lunchbox. I. WanNa know this object just never worn jewelry never owned a watch never had anything so I just felt weird and so I just don't wear it no need to. So it's either because of their job or they find it uncomfortable or bothersome that's it the job. The job I don't want the ladies think no, it's just cultural feels weird to have it on your handle according to marriage counselors. If a husband is ring free from the beginning, there's nothing to panic about that. Don't like wearing rings right I can do that however. If, he's not ring also wants to be bring something to think about their wives. Yeah, and my husband does take his offer work though on what if he wanted to wear around his neck like a chain? Guys do that you. Know why? I. Think that's actually pretty cool what why because it's closer to your heart? No. Just because I want my hand. I. Have Trouble with watches. I never watched any jewelry around my hands I just don't wear anything. Okay. You run that by Caitlin. What you wearing it as a necklace eventually whenever you'll get married one day. Try Not to fight I'd like to get into so. That's the point Ramo. Let me talk about Raimondo for he's getting married in October. Raymond what I hear from from Bay your fiance is that you want an expensive wedding ring and not the normal cheap guy one yet some guys have done this rubber thing it doesn't even look like diamonds or anything like that, and that's really the row I WANNA go. Robert Diamond. Diamond. He wants a diamond ring. Yes. It was nine stones and you can get it for under a thousand dollars right now they have deals where it's half off way think about that I. don't I am not into diamond rings for guys. Unless you already wear lots of diamonds and that's your thing but. You're not a Jauregui though I'm really not an especially with my job I do a lot of stuff with my fingers but she said that's not cool especially since we have the video feed I do need to wear the ring especially when I'm at work and you would like to have an a wedding ring with diamonds and who's paying for that. I believe the my fiance does. Yeah her and her family but we can get her a deal and also at the same time not. Cared I believe it's a fourth of a carry. If you go ninestones spread how it's like little teeny diamonds spread out Ray I listen I don't know I spent forty five dollars on my husband three. So James Avery shout out and I'm not gonNA hate because I have these pearls that I wear sometimes they're. Look more like man. Beads. And so I had a moment to came in this morning the reason as I found him again because Mike DC me a picture of machine. Gun Kelly. Pearls of the beam as a couple nights. Pretty. Cool. PRETTY COOL Why why aren't you have them on? You just carry them with you. Came in this morning. So what do you think you're going to surprise you with it on the wedding day. It'll be picked out beforehand. So I'm still negotiating with her. unfunny all right right. That's it. Thank you. Guys see tomorrow. Also.

There's those clock in us. There's not a map in us. That goes like. Yeah, that's Oklahoma.

You have to build storylines for these people because by the third year the first time you. Did Matt. You're just doing it. And then by the second time you can like okay, third and fourth time you like. I have to have an a story ARC. Be, I'm going to refer to things that I have to remember what are referred to or who I called somebody. Yeah, yeah, you're not just starting over right. Take these notes. Ridiculous. You take notes. While you're doing. It because I'm like what's her husband's name? Another thing that does that. He works so I respect you for doing this. He will sleep as that character the night before. Fully in full makeup, these aren't actually filters. This is. Noses and stuff like that and I respect that. You've had a team of doctors. On I'm in so much, that's true, but that's mostly because of coronavirus. They were around anyway around anyway. They went ahead and did medical. Thing I face John Witch of the corn. Teeny ones is your for. Korn tiny. Character. Do you have a favorite actually haven't seen any. That's not true. Internet serves them up that does. Is! Pastor. Pastor. KIMMO. US. To get there. I didn't sleep in his garbage. He'll need an hour and a half and get ready. He's. Hotspur the pastor elubode I'm for. I can't tell you he so so out. Of all of them. He's the only one that I can just go I. Don't yeah, and I have some stuff. But I just feel like I could do that character. Yeah, the thing that I love about two things at one. I know that Guy Yeah. Yeah Yeah, yeah, and to you it almost doesn't there a couple little. Things in their transitions do every time that are funny enough. It doesn't even matter what you say when you say. Pastor Mike. The hard stop is so often church. It's so my gosh. Way that he loses his eyes. I will. Is are sort of like a brain breaks like. Him, so, in his thoughts down when that is. In the more abrupt that transition. Funnier yeah out of the blue. You know one of the things that I. Mean I have a friend who every time he does is still to this day. CACKLE with laughter, but we'll. We'll all be having 'cause. We all grew up in the church and south and we'll like. Somebody will say something really fun at a picnic slash. Hang out in everybody's laughing and he will immediately grab the two people's hands next go. Thank. You, Lord for laughter. And I'm like it can be. I will I can't control. How hard I laugh! Because he's really sincere when he does. Use Okay. Oh, I mean. I mean he's being funny, but. He plays it so serious and he'll. Lord Thank You And I'm like I'm out. I WANNA see a series of video of people's reaction to all my God. Off immediately goes up. Captured a blessing. That's I think that's a lot of people's favorites. I can't quit the chickens. That has no surprise you every time. The chickens pop up and surprise the main chicken I cry I laugh so hard and That was kind of a bummer for me because I guess it. The same and then I saw the people because you know just how much people commented that one just took a real sharp dive like I. Feel like people responded. I suppose. Dicey with animal rights. That's very true Aso. Chicken, singers is really they are union contract. Here and we had to. We had to let them all go. Bigger! In The sky? Wow. Wow. I just couldn't. Handle him anymore well I. Get it I get it that one has more of A. Allies of all of the ones I ever did. It's the hardest. Doing? Yeah, like I could not get it together like I. I posted a couple of instagram stories me laughing and myself, yeah, because it was like they would and I. Don't know what that why. That was so funny to me. Yeah, but like a guy who's leading abandoned. He can't get his background singers to listen and up at the right time. And to. Filter activates by when you open your mouth, so that's how they pop up. I would open it and they wouldn't pop up and then that would make me less than they would pop. So it isn't right okay? I didn't know that that's good finding. Hey Francis interrupting this conversation with Dave and John to tell you about our partners over at this whole farms y'all know this is one of my very favorite stops in Nashville was asked me where they should go when they are here I. Always say you gotTa go to this'll farms tea shop and restaurant over in West National? It's one of my very favorite places. They are local, but they're also national and global fizzle farms is a social justice enterprise that's providing healing and Housing and employment for women, survivors of trafficking, prostitution and addiction. I told you bottom a couple of weeks ago. They've sent me one of their candles from the new healing collection, and it smells so good you. Is Oh good lighting candles, incredibly symbolic for thistle farms. They've lit a candle every day. y'All for over twenty years to symbolically light the way home for the next woman coming off the street. Why does that make me feel that's so beautiful? You can like the way home to by getting a candle at this'll farms dot org and if you use the code that sounds fun you. You get fifteen percent off so that two candles one for you and wanted to give away. You get fifteen percent off using the code that sounds fun at thistle farms dot. Org We always have it linked in the show notes as well. If you don't remember this'll farms dot org and use the code that sounds fun for fifteen percent off and now back to the show. Okay. We actually have a goal here today, gentlemen. We. Can't to haven't. I need you to know I don't know if you saw dave did email general last night and say. What are we doing number? Of, meetings! Took confused. It'd be fair. We've had a lot of meetings because you guys are starting a new podcast. Yes. It's been long in your hearts long in your box. Is finally to the world. ADVIL advil. I am so excited. Are you somebody excited? As Pastor. John John was my gateway drug guy into podcasting young. For one the signing bonus that you gave. That help, small liquid IV. You could ever want. You've always wanted to kite surf. Then, it's true I. Do know there is a join the network. There's a little network gift you get for joining the network. Yours is coming. It is just on backward. Let's right. We talked about the Mary sorrow. Were so hard. It's part of demand right now is through no I'm so excited because this is probably been two years in the making now. Yeah I mean Dave. Texted me. Hey can chat I came over to his studio and he was like. Had this idea for podcasts called advil? Would you want to do yeah? And I mean I was like hundred percent. Yeah, that sounds great. Doing Then, he talked me into it and again there was a signing bonus and so. But I wanted to do it for two reasons one. Dave and I are super close. We even if we weren't close relationship, we're close physically across the street from each other. And so, it would just be fun to do anything with Dave share and two. I had really gotten to the point. Two years ago where I'm like all I WANNA DO Social Media Wise. Is Just talk about my and my family. Yeah, I I don't Wanna I don't have anything else to say right away and so it came at a time. It was like dad bill. That's all I wanNA talk about. Yes, Dave, tell me about being a dad. I don't know yet. A. Lot of this is speculation we don't. Say. We're nine years in right. That's a great question I. Mean that that that it's. It's there's things about it that are certainly the same you know, but there's so much that changes and I think that's something that we get to dive into so much on the podcast. Because obviously you're. You're always dad. but man just the phases of what your kids go through, and how they change in in what they need from you all stays. The same can change so much to you know and how you relate to. Your kids changes a lot, and so it's great, and I think that's one of the things that's been really helpful. I mean that I mean. We talked about this lot John But I. I, think one of the biggest surprises of the podcast is we literally originally our conversations? You would laugh so hard at an shows a little. We knew about what it was going to become, but you know we initially were like look. Let's have like a fun. It'll be like a fun dad. Get together. We talk about broken lawn mowers, and how knowing it is to have to wash your are. Fine like Dad's stuff like the dazzling doing laugh, whatever and or We. Often. We'll be dogging in the ladies of left us to watch the kids. We generally don't know where they are. Humorously like there's a real moment of terror, we're John. I don't know where Sam went and I'm like I. Was A kid. And I'm like no, we both, and then we have to do a very spirited search because we know, the ladies are hovering, and if they walk out and go honey where Sam and he asks say I don't know. If, they bring Sam to. Right which happened numerous cameras downtown. Yeah. There's five kids between the two of us. Yeah Yeah, and so anyway I think something that we that's been such surprised that the podcast as we originally thought it would be more kind of light, and there are some very light moments fund moments a lot. I think but. It just sort of turned into this really profound journey of like heaven enemy. Anybody smarter than me would know. Hey, if you have really wise people on, they're gonNA you're gonNA have really in depth conversation tax. Transparent very challenging, but sort of life changing advice and thoughts in in you know as we kind of got into it. We both laughed so hard because it was like we would leave and think holy cow like that. Yeah, I didn't know half of the things that I just that he was talking about until it went from like this like yet, not yet cottee yet, but fun Kinda to like you know like crying. I, mean we. We need. We need to be intentional about getting some serious moments in the right, and that's not how yeah! No. Listening they should know you already recorded what you're good at some of the episodes as we're actively recording as we go as well that we've. You've recorded some so right now when we start releasing them every other week. Is that right? Yeah? When! We start releasing them every other Monday I think that's true. Yeah, yeah, you start releasing them every other Monday. We you've done of, but you're still actively recording right. Yeah, and I think our friend at me. Some of them are are musician, friends of ours, and then some are learned authors and counselors. The people in that very much, so know what they're talking. About being a dad. And child psychology in. Like, may like how men's brains works, and how that works with having a child you know, and so it's very and I. Think I think the best thing I can say about it is this. It's a podcast I would recommend to people and I can't think of a better and I think what I love about that is. We are so tertiary to the whole thing I mean. We're hosting it. I feel like we really are as much sort of like observing in learning as anybody that listens will will be for a lot of them, and so I think it's fun to me because I really wholeheartedly if I was sitting next to a stranger on the train. I'm on. Yeah, what would happen next sitting next to a stranger on a train in Brussels, and so far this story is. A train and writing mongering, and now if I was sitting next to a stranger, and they asked what I did you know and it came around to tell them about the podcast I would say usually I think as a dad or mom would ever like I think you'd really enjoy it and I think what's great about that is it just shows how little you know like the how how much we're able to. Sort of be the sidelines. These people had just such challenging encouraging things to say and adly. Really necessary. To both I think moms and Dads yes and. So it's, it's I think that's that's what I'm especially excited. About is being able to be a part of something that I'm I I WANNA promote. Yeah for people here more than just like chicken Nia Jenny right not that we don't you know. We both have songs that we've written that. We feel like Oh this has a. Bigger message or a meaningful message of course, but it feels so good to work on something that has more people involved. It's not just me in a room by myself a melody or Dave in the room by himself like it's always a collaboration. We're always bringing people in that. We know that we don't know that we're all fascinated with, and we're talking about something. That is always important. and has different. Different angles and different experiences, and and and just like me as a dad I mean it's fun to do it as a creative person, because it's just another art form of of getting information, but as a Dad I am also the dads out of my brain is learning. That was going be questioned y'all is a lot of times. The podcast we make and won the big deals for the network is helping create and release shows that solve problems. Oh, and they're and one of the problems. It is hard to be a dad. Tell me why I i. will never be one. Tell me why it's hard to be a dad right now. Kids are hard. There's a lot of answers that question. It's hard to be a dad. because. You are I I grew up with a great dead like my dad is awesome, and I'm trying to be a good dad, but I'm going to give my kids. A you know a basket of advantages and. Disadvantages, there's no way around that. Like, my dad is the greatest, and he's my hero, but he gave me some disadvantages like. Be there all the time. He maybe didn't say the right thing all the time just like. You know I'm doing so. It's challenging because it is so important, so it could not be challenging. It's so important that. I lay in bed at night. You know the time and I'm like. I gotTa do better today. Wasn't you know I could have done that thing that I I didn't have to do that. You know finish that email could've whatever with you know when Luke comes and knocks on the door and my little studio. You know stuff like that So I, think that that's one of the daily challenges that I think of all the time is. You know which voice in in my head do I Do I listen to my doing this right, you know. And then on top of that just. What is happening in our world right now and you're? We are shepherding our our kids through the world that they live in so that you know one day they can do it on their own, and then shepherd their kids through and I want to do that in a way that you know teaches them justice, and and teaches them Jesus and all that kind of stuff and everybody has an opinion on it. Everyone passionate about their kids, and you know indirectly or directly they're passionate about how you're treating your kids, and how your parenting etcetera, so it's. It's not a passive topic. I think to something that I agree with that I. Think I think it's also something that matters and I think that's something. We both got really excited about when we thought about Dad Ville is always thinking about the Brian Regan joke about like how dad's in the media, or you know like the one commercial with the DADS caught and. Oh Dad. He's gotten the sheet that Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah! And Lord knows there's truth that which is why it's funny, but I think for John in both. It's really exciting to feel like there's a spotlight I mean. It's funny. Because when I talked to we I talked to a friend. Who knows a lot about the space? And she was saying there's just not a lot of shows, but dads, and so, when I was kinda thinking of a space to try to think about and. and she was kind of saying like what are things. You're Pash muscle I love my family. She's like Oh. You should think about that and I remember. Thinking will surely and she's like. I'm telling you. There's just not a lot there. It really grieved me because I thought. You know that's to John's point. It's one of the most important things in the world you know and so I think you know to to be able to speak to the importance of it to have space for that. You know where men can talk about that and how hard it is and. In the challenges, but also just the wonderful part of getting to. Be So important. You know to your kids like what you do is one of the most vital things your kid will always feel and express that relationship, and I think that it gets a lot of attention and when it does usually it can be not great, you know it's I think for for both of us that something that is really exciting I in your question about how the things that are so hard. I think having a space to talk about why it's hard. What makes it hard and had it in? How do you get? Get better at those things. And how how can we be more present and more attentive, and or whatever the struggles are? is really exciting and I am and I'm hopeful that people will find that I just liked it. It's talked about I liked that. We're kind of trying to get it out there and I mean you know it's not that it's not gonNa be another voice for Kinda, the importance of being dad being able to laugh at it, but also really celebrating it and trying to encourage other dads. They sort of you know. Dad You to to do it best. We can and be mindful of and it's not a podcast just for dad's. We talk about. All all things. Parenting just life, but I also. Love that we're doing something that encourages other DADS to be good. and. I think that this is this can be not to take anything away from MOMS and women and the challenges there. but I think dads, and sometimes you guys were bad. Encouraging each other sometimes to do the right thing and sometimes. You know sometimes the nurturing, sometimes the more thoughtful etc, whatever you WanNa, call that can be. Can Be Seen A. You know at worst as a weakness. Or be, it's just not talked about. It's not acknowledged you know, and so so I wanNA. Give I want to be part, and we want to be part of moving the ball forward and progressing so that that's that's just more part of the conversation. At anytime anytime, we're thinking about how to do better so good. That's A. Bottom line it all thinking. I today I didn't that didn't go like I. That's a great place to to be I mean. That's across the board and racial. Relationships in your spiritual walk. If you're thinking about how to do it better, you're on the right path. And so I think for us with Dad. Dad's especially, it's just. Because, I, just don't know that. That's I mean it's not that bad. That's have been hasn't struggle with that, but to John's point out that there's been as much of a conversation around it as there is now, I love that than in my community of friends that's. On you know rewind. That's really a lot of why John. And I want his first place, because we literally said to each other means by cast like we talk about this most of the time, anyway, why not record it and have friends on the same? So I think it's encouraging me because you know I. Don't know a lot of DADS that are friends of mine who don't like to talk about that. I don't want to go see. How are you doing this or? If. You figure out how to do this better. You know whatever so yeah, so most of the episodes will be y'all interviewing other dads. But today what we're going to have here as well over on the Dad Ville feed, which everybody should go subscribe to that now. What will be on the Dad Vail? Feed today in what's here? Today is the two of you kind of having a conversation around why you're starting to podcast and what you WanNa do so let everybody listened to that now. Hey guys! This is Dave Barn.

Don't don't and this is the very first episode of Dad Vail. Dodgy want so. It's going to be quick. We want to give you a little lay of the land. It's a fiver. Yeah, tell you what advil is. Why you're here, and you know what it's not, and what does not, we don't. We should add that'd be good. Yeah, really, it'll be apparent when it's not yeah, parent. Good at this guys, thanks so much for coming. We are thrilled that you were here. Most importantly enjoy your time and Danville Dome then. The Dad Ville podcast. I'm Dave. Barnes here with Mahoney John. McLaughlin Jay Mac. We're excited to L. Here works you listening? We don't know who's yeah. It's definitely our parents if they can get the podcast up listening. Let's say it's definitely are mom. And maybe if my wonderful wife can figure out how to use an activated podcasts, she may. Gentlemen give this which there's hope for my wife. 'CAUSE as we speak, she has a brand new iphone eight. ooh, straight out of the box and she's trying to fig- right now. She's yeah. What happened they on? The bottom of the screen wouldn't work all the sudden. So I was out of town this weekend and she couldn't text me, nor could she answer my call though that's a fun game or emails, so I had to download the Marco Polo APP. No way that's how y'all just to the videos. That's what we had to do. That's genius yeah. Hey Can. We give our first Ed award away right right? Well. It wasn't my idea. Matter, you exit download. This isn't can I. WANNA I WANNA become bold, real hot at the top of this. Nothing is original and advil. Okay, it's all iterations everything. All the original ideas are terrible. Filtered through our wives. And then most of them don't come back yet. You, it was really good having yes. Now that's great, yes, so. With new phone she able to. More space on it now can download the podcast. So so, what are we doing here? advil John like what what's our? What's our? Let's explain that's explain so first of all. We're DAD's. We Are Dad's. We are dead been dead for five and a half years. Now you've been a dad for. Six. Six and a half, yeah! So, we're maybe we're not experts. No, no, no, no, we know a few not to do, and maybe that's what this is. We're here to help you. Were dads. We also live across the street each otherwise that pertinent John. Here's why that's Pertinent Dad Ville has been burst out of a million conversations that Dave and I have had. A on our front porch yet, very. So we in enemy, we literally live I. Mean You guys? It's not like. Oh. You know John Lives down the road. It's it's. Like, IT'S A. Without I don't have shoes on I walked here. And I'm not wearing. You're not worried that not only. Can I walk over today's house but I don't have to wear shoes over today's yeah. It's really cross, and so we spend a lot of time together our families. There's just kind of a well worn path across coexists coexist. We've started sort of a Colt. Colt, it is see the kids are. You know whether they want to. They don't have a choice. But we do see each other Latin to something. We've talked a lot about over the over the time we've hung is how much we love being dads. We were both musicians, so we talk a lot about that, but I would say the dad. Part of our lives takes up a lot of conversations and relating and questions and how you doing. And how did you figure this out well, even if we're not talking about being Dad's? If we're talking about music. We're trying to have that conversation in the midst of a US. Yeah, another it's like trying to have a conversation and one thousand nine hundred seventy s Ozzy Osbourne concert on the front row. while. People are shooting at you with paintball guns after they've just snorted line of cocaine. Yeah, it's like an insane clown posse. Co Headlining. defeated. The fine, which probably happen at some of for ninety. Yeah, that happened. Just getting FAGO sprayed in your face off. You know that's like they're saying. It's the fatal. What is that you know the no, that sounds like a bad gown ghostbusters. FAGER figures no. It's a soft drink. Oh okay that's much less insane than I thought. Yeah! Fake call themselves the insane clown posse in it such a not insane. I'm like if you're gonNa tell me bats blood. Yeah which might be a flavor of. It's probably the ICP. Brand. I only know this because side note. I was playing a show in Columbus Ohio years ago. Yeah, at this place called the basement. And I've been there. Have you played Dixon? Play show the basement. Yeah, that's a weird room. It is a weird room, but shit outside. Shed for those of you who are aren't in in the music Biz. Is a is like an outdoor amphitheater, so they've got that outdoor amphitheater outside. So at the same same night we are playing abandoned I in insane clown posse is also playing. So we Kinda win over and watch a little bit of show, and I didn't know this, but they have like. Semi is writing. Just for the FAGO, wow, I mean and they spray the Fago guys spraying Fago over the crowd. All the whole show. The whole. Get to that when when? Will you know we love to make music but something we're really passionate about. Is the mass. Mass, look, the music is of Liz, available. The music really. Dream be genius. If they were fake, they owned Fago and literally the ICP is just a vehicle to your figure out to the masses I. Mean They have to be responsible for good bit of figures market share anyway. What were we talking oh? We're talking about kids, oh. Yes, we live across the street. We should have the incident clown posse goes. On. They have to be. They have they may not know. They're probably like the kindness outweighed. That would be the best story ever like those guys are like the most gentle like when I'm drinking figure out of like a wine glass Oh. Yeah, he's an elder at his church, one of the guys. So, we do this, we have this conversation that, so we both had had. We sort of the origin of this whole thing is we'd cut a both had conversations about you know John is a great purveyor of podcasts. You listen to like you. Kinda got me into that whole scene a love Pie. The puck. Yeah I give that to you I'm crediting that with you. I didn't know that. Yeah. I didn't think I'd be into it but I'm I love it. It's been. It's been well again. Dylan Williams Dylan. Dylan and I grew up in the same town. He played guitar with me for years and years and years, so if anyone listening. Is a fan of me and you've been to a bunch of shows. You probably seen Dylan He. He's gotTa be like the first guy on the planet that was listening to podcasts well, and he would always tell us it's. Super, it's so dylan. Yeah, he. Dylan is very re-rule. Yoga since infancy yeah. Infant Yoga infant yoga yet, tiny little mats. Literally. On tiny little. Devil. Killing it. Anyway Dylan would tell us all about these podcasts he's listening to, and you'd always listen to these like real obscure like. Random podcasts about how someone. The mathematical equation behind the Oak, trees or something I don't know yeah, and we would always make fun of the six part series. Six I hear. Of Oak Mathematics. But then once I started listening to podcasts, I became addicted to them to the point where. Last year I had to boycott. Yeah, this. Yeah you you this. We talked about this a lot because I wasn't writing songs anymore. You writing podcast. I was reading podcast albums of Pike I was just having dreams of just conversation. Whereas I used to dream of melodies. SORTA translate to hear people talk about. Anything carburetors on nineteen eighty five Honda accord. Yeah, yeah, just do a deep dive now. Which side? No one of my favorite shows of all time right now is comedians in cars getting coughing, because it's sort of like, it's a visual podcast now. We've talked about this. Yeah, we have. Different we have. We have differing opinions on this. Which since since we've talked about it I do I. See it through your Lens a little bit. Seinfeld is not the warmest guy you know. It's not like watching the Ellen Show Yep Yep, but it's just so funny. I love cars, and he is all about I love coffee, and you'll have comedian that is literally a show you. Are There Democrat I late? When they sat at Netflix's and we're like Jerry who you going for. He's like there's a guy in Nashville named. Jump Cough. Up If we can pair it down to just one humans the Guy. I I am so passionate about coffee I mean. I'm not passionate about. Stand up comedy necessarily, but everyone loves to laugh, right. And and I love cars, maybe our tagline. Everyone loves to law. We one if Dad Wien everyone loves to don't over think. Anyway! So I had to. I had to boycott podcasts so that I could listen to music again and you know. Start writing some songs, but I'm an avid podcast listener. Yeah, you've definitely and so I started get into I. Thought man that sounds like something that would be fun. which if anyone who should have a podcast? It would be you think. It's just a matter of you're just trying to figure out what. What is you want it to be? The story long of the longer story, how do you say that? Long Story Short. And seen the irony that you're going if anybody should have a by me and I, don't know how to talk like a human. But I had thought about it and I'd sat with my management. We talked about it and then, but I just couldn't. These things are tricky, because I think to the naked eye. They look like we just sit and talk about stuff, but it's. You gotTa Make It. Let's let's. Can we tell them? Leave did. Ready we did episode that was seventy two minutes. Don't be scared. I don't think they're all going to be there. And got them with it and it like we kind of had that moment. So like after a first kiss, you know where you're kind of like. That was that was great. Right Oh, yeah, I love that we should yeah. That's such a great analogy. It's the first kiss. Of podcasts. Yeah we got done and we're sort of like. I'm a little out of breath. I don't know why I'm sweating. I didn't like shirt on has good right yes? Then let ten seconds. We should do that again. I'm so relieved, so it seems like something that's going to be easy to pull off, but I think. I just knew. This is gonNA. Take some this avenue, and so yeah, we're talking. I was talking a friend of mine and I had the title. I knew it'd be fun to do something kind of that's done. Some research said it a bunch of podcast to promote my last record. Does like every time I do a podcast had kinda go? Hey, what do you think about this you know and you know by was like you can just sit down and talk to people about stuff and do the QNA thing, but it helps if you kind of have a line on something, so the more specific the most. As long as you are passionate about it, that was the big thing is is that it has to be something that you're not gonna like Wayne on. Three episodes in or something. And so, which is kind of a metaphor for just being dead, anyway it. Okay didn't know you were going to drop them. Well, that's that's what I do. but I just couldn't I. Thought Dad was fun. It'd be fun to talk about being a dad which is. We're not just going to do that. And that I should say we want everybody listeners. Our hope is that Moms, dads single and look. We have no allusions that. If we if we take our demographics right, and we transfer them at least in the beginning over to our podcast. Yeah, based on what we're seeing when we're standing on stage these five year, old athletic males. I'm excited if I have three thousand. And I'll take. Excited Literally A. A athletic now a athletic man, so we're listening. We have a lot of. Women Listening Yeah Right now. This is harassed by DAD's not exclusively for de. Thank you right right. It's just by just by that. It's for whoever wants to listen. So Seth was our friends at Philpott was sitting room, and it's kind of a catch to do what the angle is what? You should do. which he's always good idea guy and he said she could Johnny with you and it was like everything it was like all the tetris pieces perfectly fit. I had like my little mermaid moment. Oh, and it was like that's exactly what we should do. And we talked about it. We were both super excited about it. And so, and then that leads is here well I had been thinking about social media. And you and I are both artists, so we. We sort of have to do that unless you're billy Joel you. You have to social media. And unlike you somebody who, just just somebody could just put a camera on you and it's it's entertaining. Right for me. It's just it doesn't come as easily. I twitter was fun for. Two or three years for me and then I'm like. I don't have anything to say anymore. Yeah, what am I? I'm still doing the same thing. What am I? What am I supposed to say? So then I became a dad. And then my girls are my life. It's the greatest thing in the world, and so I was thinking. You know I could post about my girls when I post a picture of. My girls are walking to get coffee. Whatever I remember one time when Luca, who's our my oldest? She's five now. She was probably two or something. She's sitting in her high chair and she's eating like toast or something like that. And she asked for some Jelly. It is just the two of us in the room and I said. I don't think you're ready for this jelly. And I'm going to tweet that now. I'm excited to tweet that yeah! Is it going to go viral I duNno, should it. Maybe that's a different story for you to judge, but I'm thinking stuff dad's stuff yet. I'm excited about that, so I was thinking about. Do I set up like a blog for DADS or something. That's probably something. There are a million mommy blogs. Yeah, are their dad blogs out there I don't know and then I was over here, chatting with you and you were like hey, would you want to do a podcast called? De Ville was. Can we get podcast married? Like I will one hundred percent to a advil, yes. I'll tell you the other why to. We talked about this mitigate before we started recording. I think the other thing too is. I love to be a dad. I think being a dad, and hopefully we'll talk about this a lot on spike cast, but I think it's one of the most important things in the world I really do. I saw quote today. That really blew my mind It's in the quotas. Tell me who your father is, and I'll tell you who you are and I think that's really true I. Think there aren't many more important relationships than their relationship. You have with your dad and I think seminal end. Backbone forming in your relationship especially with your other I mean mother and similar era as important different ways. I think that's one of the things always. I love so much about our friendship friendship with my other friends who were DADS is. That we all enjoy. It actually had this moment I was going to textual. This is totally forgot, but this weekend for Sam's birthday. A little dude who's to you know W- We had it at the gym. That the church we go to, and and I had a moment. I literally had a moment where I looked up and I was like. This is such a humongous blessing because in this room and this gym or You know what five of my closest guy friends. Who are so excited to be here like? All the kids are running around going crazy and I. Literally had a moment where I got a little emotional. Because I was like this has got to be what heaven sort of feels like you know that was one, but to was what a blessing that my friends! Love their kids so well and that Kirgyz me so much and Dad. Dad Isn't a bird. It's hard, but it's not a burden something. We all take so much joint because I would argue of all of the things that we give our kids is parents is one of the greatest gifts is the joy of being their parent. To celebrate them and for them to see. That, we love that that they're not something that derails our plans are your life was great until we had y'all you know, but but and so it was funny because I thought as I was thinking today about you know sort of the flavor for the podcast subset I thought. You know that that's a big deal I, not both of us that. That the. Dad, being a dad can be, so it's it's such a joy in its in its. You know where I think you know there is a lot of like we're idiots and we don't know what we're doing, but it's also something that I think is should be celebrated, and should really be championed and supported and because I think sometimes in our culture dads. Can really you know we can really Take the hit for things and a lot of is deservedly so but I think. But I think that's another thing I get excited about doing. This podcast is having a forum for Dads to really. I to to talk about what what a blessing this is! What a gift it is to to get to do! We do any importance of the humongous magnitude of what we are doing. in being, you know. Dad's Yeah I think that as I have gotten older and this is before I became a dad, but the older I get, the more I realize, everything that you just said you know how important DADS are. In. Everybody's life. I told I mean that quote that you just read a I believe that wholeheartedly and this like you said doesn't take anything away from MOMS. I mean when I was growing up my mom and I were Super Close and my dad and I are super close, and I have the greatest in the world, but I remember. This is probably ten years ago when my band and I, we were still touring. Crazy in my van. And we would watch the Tom Petty rundown. Throw you documentary yeah. I it's six hours long so but I highly. Recommend it if anyone who. Has Six hours of free time. Sit Down and you might WANNA. Think about why you have that much time, but. I digress, you could do worse things than to watch documentary, but at some point in that documentary. Someone who is quoting Bano about? A. Everyone every like Rockstar guy who's up on stage who it becomes like a mega star. Has Somebody in their life, and it's typically their dad who said they couldn't do it either by saying they couldn't do it or by not being there. You know what I mean. So I think that. Dad's even though we you know. In general we sort of can sometimes get that. We're all bumbling idiots. And if you're there, you've you've SORTA. One half won the battle. This is this is a good segue into This was maybe a year ago six months ago when I was I was walking down the street with my girls I'm meeting. Amy Like Yoga or something like that and we're meeting amy for coffee. which this is a common theme in our life, always walking to get coffee. That's basically what we do. It's not. It's parents. Pushing? Strollers getting cocoa. And instead of laughing, we're all crying and yell but. So I had got the girls ready by myself, which is a can be a nightmare I get him in the in the stroller this. It's cold outside, so I got them all worked up with blankets and hats and all that. And I'm pushing them down the street and this woman is walking toward me. She's smart beaming at me and she gets a little closer inches. Aren't you such a great dad? And then she keeps walking and. I was like thank you. I'm thinking what. What can I be doing this any less than? Any. Pushing down the street, she doesn't even know that I was screaming at them. Get their shoes on Yelich. I'm just there. Yeah, you're just so huge. I mean to take a light moment and really make dramatic. But it's so true. Yeah, half the battle is just by being there. And again, this is not to take. A moms and dads are equally as important in different ways. And, that's not to say that you know MOMS can't have dad like roles and you know but. There's something about there's just just a weight of your dad. That's great. It's a great way to put. Yeah, it's a huge deal is a huge deal. Yes. So that's that's kind of. That's a lot of our Y And, you know it gives us. Just also just give so much talk about any of diapers and I mean we have stories for days, so it was nice. Little record 'em. Yeah, thank you so. Finally I'll say it's going to wrap up this first episode we. We, really don't have a clue doing and. And that's global I'm not saying about the PODCAST. That's not just limited to podcast award. Adding you can apply. You can apply that in my life to literally everything music. My friendships. Marriage wardrobe wardrobe attire can. Can we talk quickly? Just we'll flavor on this. What What happ- what happened to me where I if it was okay? If I could I would I would. Rector Ben Rector are good. Yup, we had this discussion with. We talked with us here. If you're there just a uniform, so yes, yeah, yes. We had a very wonderful enlightening conversation about how he was very close to considering just wearing the same thing all the time. Totally who you don't think about that until you're a dad, well, Steve Jobs did it. Right Steve Jobs crush eric weather. Web Does enough late twenty years, yeah. But I mean there's there's there's just it's, too. I don't WanNa. Think about that like I mean any will. I'd just I think she I think she may think something's wrong with me. They go that. She said the is at the uniform on I was like. What does that mean totally? You just need to have someone with you when you pick out and you really push the red button on that uniform. Yeah, you just need a circle of friends around you. That sad, it's the first death toward the beginning of a lot of death. That's what scared about. It's like what you've given up on that. conquered. Right Tomato, tomato come on. So you know we're doing. We're we're. We're glad everybody's listen, or if anybody's anybody listen if you're listening, it's great we're if you are God.

Being able to juggle success and fame at an incredible. His his ability to just be normal as pretty outstanding, and he's such a great debt. I I remember being so moved by how candy was. Remember how we talked about what it's like to be successful as dad like. You're actually making the kind of money he is. How do you? How do you do that with your kids? He didn't grow up like that. He talks about that in the podcast. Yeah, kind of You know not obviously like with the amount of money as An and I remember being so encouraged and challenged by how candidate was about that like how much struggle it is, and how do you do that? you know and just sort of processing, everybody's different challenges, but his being. You know when you've done really well in life, you sort of model, your kids normal life. I thought that was really cool. I think about it and we start the the episode as we do with. Kind of reading this, Brag sheet his this is. I mean the word billion was around a lot. And then to ask him I think the first question was just okay. How do you feel when you hear all that? Yeah, and for him just say like. I I'm the same guy that I. was you know when I before I started all this stuff.

Okay i'm here at keighley dickerson's how hello wife of russell dickerson. Hey who's very hilarious dynamic. Country singer yes. He is oh here. She didn't know he was going to be here. You know you got an elevator in your house. Love you any vie know. Yeah we're where do you like to ride that elevator down to the laundry. John wine cellar library that very necessary for sure. Yeah so sounds like you guys have no fun in your marriage at all. Yes zero but no laughs. No no lapse. What does a typical day like here at the dickerson house. It is it's an adventure. He is truly like wakes up thinking. It's the best day every single day. And where does that mentality come from. I have no idea like eight is he is unicorns rainbows like this morning. He goes like i thing. I woke up to today. Was it snowing. Like he's like buddy l. I'm like reminds me of l. Like he's never seen snow in his life like it's so cute. It's a few so that has to you have the same infectious personality. Also though like you're always glass half full optimistic yeah. I'm happy kid. I mean so seriously. They are like sitting on a rainbow to not skittles. That is pictured. The little kid on lake dreamworks like going fishing from the moon. I'm like it feels like that. So okay i since you guys have such an optimistic personality how do you guys deal with this music industry. Because not every day isn't optimistic day. So how do you navigate this wild industry and you have something. Y'all have something really special because you are always by russell side. Yeah y'all are true partnership in you're on the road with him constantly which a lot of women would have a hard time doing. yeah. I love it okay. So you're made for it. I love it. Yeah i have five older brothers so only girl only girl and we traveled so hard core for soccer for them that i lived in a van with a bunch of boys. This is normal for now. I just live in a bigger van with a bunch of ways. I actually live love. I really do love it. Yeah it's yeah. It's not an industry that's always rainbows and unicorns. But i feel like we've known for so long and had to fight for. We knew he was supposed to do that. Even the things that we were like praying for so hard. We want this. We want that. And i mean even. When they didn't happen it was like okay. They're not supposed to happen. So it's just the land is like everything works together for the good always. You know so. We actually laughed about that the other day like he really wanted to think called on the verge for radio and we wrote praying for for years. You know we're like oh we'll get that you know verges where all the radio stations. Decide to play your songs like. You're single so we were like definitely definitely and you have to be like an first artist first thing and he didn't get it and we were so bombed in honestly looking back. I'm really were thankful like now. We're like oh. I'm actually kinda glad that we built those relationships. The hard way and like did it the way and now the second time around it was it was better and i don't know we just. We thought it just wasn't our story. And for some people it like skyrockets them into the stratosphere and it's great it's everyone stories so different but we're grateful for how our has you know is turning up. God is a big part of elle's journey. You always talk about god. I know that this is this is the centerpiece of y'alls live career marriage. Where does that come from. We both grew up in the church. Okay so his. Dad is a worship pastor in national at would not baptist where we got married really greenhouse some preachers kids. Turn the other way. And i go crazy. We both had our. We definitely had our i. Don't i know i had. I don't think i believe in god anymore. I had that phase in high school. Yeah and he never did. He is just like the most faith like they say like faith is a gift. He has the gift of faith. Just blind total faith. I always going to think of him like now for. Yeah oh yeah he really is. He really is just not in the jumpsuit. But he's like world's best coffee. Congratulations yeah. I grew up pasture sister so because my brother is basically enough to be my dad. Okay 'cause yeah that's what you said. Your oldest brother is twenty years twenty years older. So he was my pastor he like was really foundational in my beliefs and my parents are christians but he was more hands on went to seminary learning all these things with him that i thought were so interesting and then had a moment where like i don't think this is real and then i was like. Oh no this is definitely real. Okay so what was that moment. Why did you not think it was real. And then what made me back. I went to belmont so in my high school in wisconsin. There were like there were cushions but it was no one was like. I'm going to make sacrifices for this. And i kind of was. I didn't go to all the parties and didn't do things that i thought like a good christian should do you know and i moved to nashville and i was like there are to be other christians. I'm not going to be alone. And i got here and that didn't happen and i was like. Oh i think this is something my family does. Okay and i was like maybe this isn't real okay and then i kind of didn't do anything wild and crazy to figure it out but all of a sudden i felt different one day i remember and i was like if i feel different than it means. There's something to feel. So god israel that was it and then that was it it was just that's and then on. Yeah sure yeah like. It felt like the joy in life was gone. Okay an hour. Like if i if if there's something to feel like that than god's real i don't know it's just that simple. Yeah and we found each other way after that like i had come full circle. I was like doing missions photography and he was leading worship at a bunch of churches and you are not interested in dating -sition like that was not on the agenda. No definitely not always found them. Like i would say that if i look at my track record it was obviously they were all musicians like what is wrong with me. I was drawn to it. I guess i don't know. That's so i've done some stocking on you. Obviously you but so you had like maybe not the best relationship before russell. Oh yeah you got a little burned and you weren't necessarily open especially to the musicians to relationship. How did you you talked about. Trust a lot. like russell told you did have some. But you're like okay you're human and then finally like you heard that god. Where did that all come from. And you're so good. Hearing science from god like hearing hearing speak to you he comes to you and dreams he comes you and signs i want to talk to you about that chronic this. How did that come where you knew you had a trust in like. This is a leap. You're gonna take i. I would always pray that if it wasn't gods best. Whoever i was dating after that guy after i got burned I was like if this isn't your best for god. Just take him okay. And every single time. He did like within like two weeks. That's what i love about. Your faith is like you ask and it gets answered. Well he's that though in my obviously in my experience but you trust so will you trust so fully that the answer is coming well it came from a hard decisions like breaking up with that guy are honestly was like god if if he's not going to be faithful like i always had a fear of that and with him specifically If that's going to be the trajectory of my life and i'm gonna have kids and this is going to happen. I needed to happen now. Yes get out and no joke. In the two years we had dated he had never cheated on me and after i prayed that he cheated six times. Wow and i was like okay so it took a hard thing. I broke up with the guy. I thought i was gonna marry. And it's not like rainbows. Hearing got speak is that sucked allot but then when it came to rebuilding my heart entrusting trusting someone again hours like all right. We'll god save me the last time he'll do it again and it's actually really cool story. I got to call him probably years later. I was in church. And i was like god. What's between us like. Is there anything. Like i'm holding onto like just talk to me. Basically talk to god like how do you remind. How does he answer you. How do you know when he's giving you an answer. You just know it's almost like someone it's like you think of something you didn't think of so all of a sudden i thought oh. Come across my mind that. I know i did generate okay in. There's faith in that too. Because i'm done you're like no i'm just thinking that right and then you just trust it and what happens. And if it's not him it'll show itself but in this case it was and he was like you don't believe i won't let you down okay and i was like whoa and all knowing response. It's like some people everyone's different everyone. Here's got different feelings. Our dreams or in this case. He doesn't always speak like that to me. But when i ask usually says something okay. And so. I immediately thought of my ex and i was like. Oh my gosh i. I prayed for this and all this time. I've thought that you hurt me and let me date someone who had hurt me when really he immediately was like. I saved you And i was like whoa. You didn't let me down. You saved me. And so immediately remembered. I had prayed for it and i thought of how he must still be feeling because he would come to town for the next year and try and get me back and you're like on your way not happening. Once you made up your mind you're done house on. Yeah also and what you've anna he cheated on us six times and i honestly was willing to forgive him and then i remembered what i prayed and i was like. Oh my bad. Like i forgot. I totally forgot. And i was like i can forgive you in anyway. It's this is the real the real deal story and so i called him year like years later russell and i maybe were married at this point. Oh wow and we were in church. And he was actually leading worship. And i walked out and i also yeah and i called my ex and i was like hey. I just want you to know that that wasn't you like we weren't supposed to be together and i wasn't gonna see it other than that. I just wanna release you from thinking that you you messed everything up and i was like. I prayed for this to happen if we weren't supposed to be together and it happened. And it's not your character and it's not who you are and you're not gonna you know all of a sudden he's crying on the phone. I'm crying and you gave him serious like forgiveness. Yeah yeah and i was like this is not going to be your future shifted into like prophesying over his life. This is not who you are not who you're going to be. You're going to be a great dad and a great husband and and just kind of let them go. And i mean he was crying. I was crying and whatever lease was a really special thing actually and then for him to have that forgiveness for me you know and to think that like he doesn't have to be that person yeah and you won't he's married has a kid like he's just a good dude. I i hope. I think you know so. I've gone through like the hard stuff with god that that good stuff is that much sweeter and are you able to see the hard stuff. Now as part of god's plan totally that's something. I've been learning lately. Because i used to think things are good or bad like bad happens especially in this industry wild industry. It's a roller coaster. Ride now it'd be like oh if things don't go according to plan and even with my own career i've had a wild career distri. It's like so many things have blown up in my face and in the beginning it crushed me like when it first started happening i was like how can this happen in my life is over. How will we ever like move on and then comes this. Next wave of lessons of learning of things getting answered in ways that could have never been answered if if something yeah per se hadn't happen and it's made me realize that things really aren't bad you just have to be willing to find the message in them And it's all for the good. It's all good. Offer the good and we expect that guy's going to do things in a way that feel right but god teaches us lessons in all different ways totally hurt. It's not like his goal for our lives. Isn't that it's like son china. It's not. it's that we are good people. And we're humble people and that we love others well in some sometimes the hard stuff forced to do those things and see what really matters in what doesn't matter and you see it. You're in africa with little kids. Who are smiling bigger than anyone you've ever seen in your life in. All they have is a deflated. Soccer ball like there are things in this life that we think matter. Don't at all yeah. Just they don't. And i think that perspective is what really opens our eyes to it. I totally agree. And i've this year. My word has been surrender because so good. Well it's just like. I always have so many plans and i still have so many plans and i still have so many goals and like i want my life. I know how. I want my life to look because i very visionary my mind but also unlike some of the greatest things that ever happened to me have been so off course. You insert like. I'm trying to just let it all role and if something happens iraq's my world just get the lesson figure out why it happened sometimes being humbled such a good thing too. Yeah i'm thankful to like. Even if i hadn't had that heartbreak how would i ever relate to other girls who've been heartbroken You know and what have you. You might not even appreciate russell puppy he is. You might just think that's how normal people are. People are just like that. No they're not they're not but yeah like i'm just so even so russ and i even broke up while we were dating okay or just just tested out to make sure when i broke up to we were just. We just graduated college. He was about to take off and be the superstar. And i was out of still figuring my stuff out to and so even when that even that ended. I'd still with praying. God this is not your best. If this isn't your best for me like take him and so when that happened. I was like okay. Maybe it's not russell. And i just had so much peace because i'd already done this You know and i'd already in so in turn. I didn't get all clinging on him and be like but but no. no no. We're supposed to be together are supposed to be to and your faith straw. Just let him go. I let them go and I prayed for him and prayed. I would still be like if it's if it's him bring him back if it's not i don't and sherlock about a month. He came back and he called me on thanksgiving while in that month was like i'm thankful for you and i was like excuse me what. Why are you calling me. Here's like i don't know. I just thought about you and just wanted to tell us thankful for years like okay. Because he was like we'll be friends. I was like oh hail now. I've never been one of those people be friends with xs. No i was like you do not get both both and and i think that honestly helped a lot because i could just really let him go and i wasn't half their half not and not lukewarm. Yeah i was like you're all in or not and he back in all in and then y'all how long until you out married. after that. he proposed a year in a month or so after that and then got married three months after that as soon as we wearing white okay so very very and we were like luscious. Let's get married. We weren't living together. You know we were so excited to be married. I didn't. I wasn't excited about a wedding. I i really. I was like the sounds so stressful. Especially as the only girl i was like pressure is on sydney. We'll have kind of a low-key wedding Six hundred people like not others options. You know i'm not a very anxious person which also i think helps with this whole life. Faith that you don't have anxiety probably. Yeah probably so solid interface. No no there's plenty of times in like hello god alluding meaning right here. you know. there's plenty of time but or when a friend of mine just went through something show hard and there are plenty of times god. Where are you in this. 'cause this is not good in the because life happens and we're not in heaven not going to be here and i understand that but Yeah there's plenty of times that i'm like hello. This isn't cool. Yeah this is really really hard and there were plenty of times in his career. The last five years. We've been like where are you. I know. I know that. I think though that everyone has that journey. Yeah especially it's okay. It's for human beings like if anyone tells you they never questioned anything anytime. I'd be like concerned unless they're russell and they have the gift of faith. Like i mean he just really is like a fairy in god is everywhere and what would it be to be like him for a day. I don't know. I don't know i'm honestly kinda scared. His co bing bing bing being being it's so fun we were just talking about how. He's starting his vlog. Which who knows if this will ever even happen. I'm gonna be honest. His eighty is like i'm super into this right now. He's doing the whole thing. Okay but it's like. I watch the his first episode and it truly is like insight into his brain okay because this is his direction he is shooting. He's choosing what film he used to. Eighty is like all over the place like it is like a trip through his brain. It's exciting that's exciting. I'm excited. I'm just glad i'm not doing it online. It's fun with the camera babe. I'm gonna chill. It's a change of roles because you're the videography hello to cmt number one video. Hey how is that weird like. It's so funny. I i'm super proud of it. Because female directors are really rare. Like really like we were nominated for breakthrough video last year at. Cmt's so film and so they're just making sure i had a rig my situations couldn't check. Should i take a picture of what's happening over here to put on. That's how i'll post that. Were so we were nominated for. Cmt breakthrough video with yours. Yes which was purely just me and him and our been driving and that was also a leap of faith video. Because at that point there wasn't a whole lot going on russell's career. No there was nothing everyone had said. No everyone had said now. So you said okay. Let me just go out and film this video. Yeah i had so my fourth brother. The one who's apartment in a getaway in la which we have chocolate yes. He moved to santa barbara but he was rent controlled in house. Like yeah. we're gonna take this over. It's a dream so he is. A director has done tons of major major music videos. And so i was a junior in college and he was like hey. I just got in a nice camera. Christmas and he had this video job. Come through that. They didn't initially like the first video that was shot so all the budget was gone. And he's like five thousand dollars to pull off a video wasn't or jones. He's can you bring your camera. And i was like sure and i was like i've never done this. And he was like rock coming into her moment. No it wasn't like come away with me but it was like shortly after. Yeah and within like five years. I don't know and so we flew out i was like what are we doing where we going. He's like i'm taking you to new york. We're doing this some junior college. I have never shot a music video in my life. I just an photography. So i don't know i said photography so. We did photography like headshots. All that in the music school belmont and then he was like i've seen your i good. Is i good. I like you. i'll teach you film. You already have the other part. Okay thanks bro. thank you. So he flew me. And i was like where are we going. He's like norah jones's and i was like yes. I way we had come out. Yes so she's already so she's already superstar. Yeah and he has a five thousand dollar budget video. I don't know how. How does this happen. Well they didn't like the first video that was made that used the budget so then they're just like they're like three do negative where like let's go with that other guy that we didn't pick his treatment and give him the tiniest budget rules and so we all her apartment and all these different other places too but yeah just around new york shot be role and he did some stuff out. Nah so he was like i want. He's like i have enough on my real. I'm putting you as dp of this music just. Ap me director of photography so like the cinematographer. And i was like excusing job. Yeah i didn't even know how to do that. Then we're your chogori found you it honestly. I wasn't like i'm going to be cinematographer. So i'd already done it. Jones the origins. That's a good start. So then i came back and i did other music videos in nashville like low budget. Did i give you a good confidence. Boost. yeah i guess let me raise my rates and make a living but like that's the girl that did the norah jones. Yeah guys. i'm a professional for sure. So then when every label said no to him. I was like we can do this. We can do this ourselves. And how did you come up with the idea. Because it's literally russell walking down a road. I it's raining. Yes random but totally worked out yes. It wasn't planned or no no so we were just gonna shoot. Test footage in a storm was like rolling in. Because i wanted to be sure. I wanted to slow it down and speed up the music. Whatever and i was like. I want to share that. I know that i can do this so we went out there and as we're coming this storm is just rolling in and i was like okay. We need. we need to get somewhere quick. Quick we hadn't even done location scouting. Were outside of the prison in not in west nashville kind of awesome. Yeah there's fire or tornado sirens going off and we couldn't hear them but now looking back. I think that's why we didn't get stopped because everyone was undercover. We were only there for like an hour and a half. He's walked down this road. Cars would come and we'd have to redo it. And i'd be like hurry hurry. Hurry the rain's coming. So we were driving and i was again. I was like god. It'd be nice if i got all of my shots. They need before the rain comes. And then once i'm done i need downpour and get some shots of that happened and we went back out there to shoot his ep in. Meanwhile we're leaving. And i'm like i'd called my cinematographer friend in la. He's like. i mean did stuff with a grey's anatomy like he's insane and he didn't get back to me because i was like i just wanted to be sharing a shutter a everything right and he calls me after we're done and i was like. Please tell me that this was right. he goes. That's exactly what i would have told you to do house. Like thank god because i was like. I got all this lightning and i was like.

Tr has something you'd like to tell you russ so was a so great. We were out with ryan heard and kelsey ballerini. Ntr oh my god. It was just like a is so it was like so young first of all.

I need you to tell me what you wanna call like. I was like. I don't have time for this. And all of a sudden this one like that one does. It just was like a feeling and i call and they're like sorry. We're not doing this. Today were something she was like. Let me take your name. And i'll call you tomorrow so my kaley dickerson. And she goes wait a second. What's your husband's name. Are you syria. And i was like russell she goes. Can i call you right back. And i was like share so she calls me back and she was like okay. You can come in today anytime they superfan. Guess i was like excuse me. What did she goes. I took care of it. I'm such a fan. Like i'll get you in all my god and i was like thank you so i got it. And then that day. We flew to thomas rhett birthday in vegas it was. Acm's in larne was like she mind you. They were like this could make you sick. It's the yellow fever. Shot or something you can make you feel like you have also super pregnant. Yes this is also when she was pregnant. Yes and i thought they couldn't have kids so that's a miracle in itself. Yeah oh it's amazing so they're like you could make you sick and she leaves the room and i was like not in jesus name. I'm not getting it. Gets it knows what i go to vegas. And i was like lauren. I got my shot. Everything's cool and she was like. How do you feel like five. This is the shot tyler got. That made him miss award show. That thomson had to sub for him because he actually had the flu from it. I was like oh great. It doesn't make everyone sick like cassie. Kelly just got like how you feel great but because she's an right now on her way. Yeah jal same place i know. Lauren is taking a trip to just kind of bring people into what they're doing with love one. Show them how they're changing all these kids lives and it's incredible what they're doing and so i i've been there. I've seen it. I tried to go this year. I wanted to go. But it was overlapping with tour and it's his first headlining tour which is also yes. Amazing co headlining with carly our girl carly pearce and have a russell to be soon hit. Yes every little thing. I'm really little which is sarawak that they have like huge. They thought about calling the tour that they went back and forth. Maybe do a mashup. I don't know but it's a quick little tour. It's only four. We haven't been as a headlining insane going from all these tours of your friends colleagues. All that like oh. He has dreamt of this for so long in in his mind like he designed the lights like he he had it. All up here in just was like go. Talk to you about how it's going. What's the response been. It isn't saying like he'll finish blue. Tacoma i cried first of all the first night because they were saying every little thing so loud so loud and i was like. This isn't even like top forty. I don't think. I like what is going on and i just i mean i looked around i was like i'm not the only one here because there's plenty of shows i was the being like that would just stand up there once. I remember specifically in georgia and my brother was there and the boys had set everything up. Sound checked in the no one cared like it was a pool hall near me and my brother and sister-in-law and we just stood up. They're like dance like crazy people. Because we're like we're sorry no one else's here you know and so i looked out and there was like over two thousand people and i was like i mean just to come from nothing. Yeah that's it just the feeling that you have to feel. I'm so grateful hard work. yes please of persistence. The faith it makes you grateful. You're not you don't resent it. You're not like we're going. There are plenty of people who are like. Oh we have to go to this station and we are like we get to go yet like you know how long we prayed to have a conversation on radio you kidding me so i think the grind and the hustle is lends itself to so much more gratitude than anything else can absolutely nothing against anyone it was given to you but like it's just not going to lend itself to being really grateful because it takes a lot out of you. It is it does it. And you have to like love this with your entire. You can't half levin no you can't you won't make it now and maybe you do and then you resent it and then it just. That's not a way to live. I interviewed jesse alexander awhile ago. She's a songwriter. awesome. And i love her. I love her so much and we were talking about just the grind and being in the music industry and she was like everybody will get humbled at some point. You know and so it's just like you some people come in huge and it's like instant but like everybody is going to get humbled because you just it. It's a part of life as part of the journey. And so like like you're saying to have had all those years of grinding to know what it feels like to have. No one at the shows you know to still have your faith for him. It makes it so sweet so annual all ages have this appreciation to be there. Oh my gosh yes. Yes and amen day of how Oh someone was just talking about like artists comparing themselves to each other and feeling like there's enough room at the table right and i was like we learned that lesson in a very quiet place because rust actually turned down the deal. Fda took and we watch them blow up in front of our faces and at first we were like dang it. Did we make a mistake. But that was never our deal and it wouldn't have worked for him because he didn't have crews cruise like just as simple as that and xm. Radio deal no it was They're like publishing kind of label deal at the time and still they still are with. Its big loud. oh yeah and Arrests had turned it down and we were like. Oh did we make a mistake. 'cause nothing's happening for us like we learned that was. There's there's no comparison. There's no you cannot be like. We chose to celebrate them and cheer them on. And i feel like that is such a pivotal and i think that's why he has what he has in my opinion Because he will champion everyone around him. He's not mad when someone gets something he wants that he's been and we just did that in in a quiet place. We went through it so that now. We're not ruining relationships because there are some people who like kind of you know they're just not as welcoming or they think that they have to show up stage or whatever and like there's room at the table i love what you're saying because like in a different way like i'm kind of wwe career wise and also i've been on a big pregnancy journey and like we miscarriage and like we tried for a long time. Pregnant didn't happen. And it's just like i chose from the beginning. That was always going to be happy to support my friends who were having success in babies. Because exactly like you're saying it is so easy to want to feel sorry for yourself to get upset to be angry at the situation in saint with music. Something can go so great for you and then fall apart and ryan us. You're going to let your you can feel sad and upset for yourself to not be able to celebrate other people. I feel like it's such a. You're you're missing out. You really miss out on joys of life yours will come. You know totally an oil come. It might only come if you choose to celebrate other people. Yeah only come that way and just like when you see people who like it'd be hard sometimes because you can be a really hard season wife and yeah everyone else can be totally flourishing around you but still. It's like you have to have that faith that what's for you will be for you and celebrate other people. Yup i love that. You said that because that is something i have just been noticing and thinking about all the time because when you are in a heart season you wanna feel sad sometimes. But you're like no not bigger than me and totally someone else. Getting something doesn't mean you won't exactly. Why is that fear that that's part of the problem with thinking like there's not enough that god is he's infinite yeah literally infinite so what he has him giving one thing to something. He's not out of it now. He's not running his short stockholders not depleting like it's he is infinite like it never ends like it's all good you know and i think you have to realize that and believe it. In order to celebrate other people. I agree the secret to life celebrating. The people a man to that. I think it is i love that. So how do you okay. So when y'all are in a period where it wasn't going for you turned down an opportunity. How how did you deal with it privately. And how did you was that a decision that you made or was it just like. How did you work through that. I think we kinda ran towards it. Instead of like backing away from our friendships we ran straight to the heart of it. And we got nothing but closer with tyler and hayley and i mean we would go to their beautiful home and then come back to our little duplex that we were renting you know and there were plenty of opportunities to be jealous or you know. Want what your neighbor has. But we're like no we're gonna love the crap out of them and we're just going to be best friend and it changed for it. There are some of our sweetest dearest. There's some of the greatest people on the planet on the plant. Hundred like they're just wonderful people in if we would have let that come between us and resentment or whatever which. I'm sure he doesn't even if he heard this he'd be like what that was hard for you. You've never even talked about it because it truly we. We just ran towards it. Yeah instead of being shying away yeah we're just gonna love him We didn't. I really admire that i really do. Because that is such a incredible trait to have and it shows how much faith you have. And how loving yours human. Because that. that's one of the hardest things i mean. What is it like. it's it's one of the seven deadly sins zero darren. It's like it happens. Everyone especially in this industry that's navigating it in the way that you guys have chosen to navigate it with faith with love with you know just working on your self and your art india celebrating. Everyone else like that is really inspiring all thanks. It really is not always been easy. But it's it's worth it. It is worth it. And then look at your joyful life you know just trying to be like unicorns and rainbows are ear. He makes it pretty easy. Talk to me about europe. Because y'all on a big trip. Yes we matter speaking of guards and you said that you were thinking paris might let you down but it did. It did not. I thought it was going to be over hyped. Because you have this like this like picture. I have so romantic. And it's going to be this and that granted i've come to learn whether determines if i like city one hundred percent okay so like we went to amsterdam on this same trip but it was rainy and it was cold. I ll getting sick. And i need to go back because i didn't love it because of that aren't feeling great. Someone we know when they were in paris it was like that so they didn't let it when we were there. It was like seventy every day in sunny. Like high of seventy so it was like fall like early fall in. It was incredible. It was incredible food. Did you eat incredible. What you have pasta every day. Oh yes everything croissant is. Yeah macaroni. macron's locker rooms. I don't even know we don't speak french so the secret i will say the secret is trying. Everyone's like french. People are so rude they hate us baba so we would walk around and be like do. Do you try to communicate in french. They will be more welcoming to you. That's what we learned. So how would you speak to them you. we'd like. Do you speak english in french. And then there'd be like yes and then they're more likely to be kind to you because he was walking in being like. Hey can i get assuming. They speak english jerk american. Yeah i think that's why because we just assume they know our language like what if one was french walked up to you just started retrieve. You'll be like excuse me. Do i look french bread. Yeah but the food was crazy we did. Cassie kelly's recommendation. She has like everywhere texter. And you're like ham going here. She sends you an entire note of every location. Every rush keep notes on every yes every city. She's incredible goals. I call her the first lady of country music. Yes i'm like. Fashionable knows how to accidentally flips houses. Like she goes in and makes them so fabulous that people come over and they're like i'm buying your house and then she has to do it all over again. Style is just impeccable. Perfect every just who she uses out of this. I know it's you just loves it. But champions knows she calls everything fabulous favorite like. It never used that word until i was wrong. Cassie and i'd be like it's fabulous. That's what she does. She's just the best but she's entire list of every city. My gosh you're putting them in yelp. So i'm trying to find a way. I don't know there's probably a better way to do this. So comment if you know one. But i wanna start having like booklets or whatever lists in yelp okay to share i love. I don't know if that's the thing. But i started putting her in there and like the ones we liked and started writing reviews and trying to have different cities that could be like. Hey go 'cause then. When you're going to paris i don't know if you can do this but go to my profile right you're yelp profile and then see what i've saved. Yeah oh that one's kind of close to us because with her list. I have to yelp everyone to know where they okay in find. It started like putting them into her list verbatim. We went to at least three of the places she recommended. And they're all just sad as she was that one of them. We spent the most money we've ever spent on a meal. Truly truly it was right. After blue tacoma went number one got to celebrate. Oh yeah so. We hadn't done like a big celebration dinner so we did this eight core. Stop something what did you eat. Everything was soft but the funny thing about the french. I'm like do. They not have teeth like every soft moose foie gras everything okay. Yeah i was like if i'm going to do these things you're to hear that good for that's good is an american version. Who knows could be totally mess. I shouldn't have said that. I should be more open minded everything like that. S cargo and every little teeny tiny portion was all deleted. Is like a little quail wing. It was like this big and like the meat was like that and you just it wasn't. Yeah and then. All these desserts and wine pairings. It was crazy it was crazy. Some of some of it. I could use a little crunch. But that's like create all these teeny tiny moose's soups and everyone so teeny tiny france. You think are they. I don't know. I don't know that they aren't. I don't think i noticed. Drink fatty everything was fatty. Okay it's like real food. It's so much true zest true and we had An italian meal there that they wheeled out a whole thing of parmesan and scraped it and lit on fire. And how host my pasta and it is you die. Oh this is one of the best. Like i was like just behind russell's head. We're in this little allie. Only what is life. That honestly i would go back anytime. A was the last place. I wanted to go before we start talking about having kids because i want to go to paris so we're talking about having kids we're talking about okay. We're talking about. Hey i like the kid combo. Oh yeah we're working on it well about it but we've been married five years and that was my like i want five years of just us. Yeah i love that. Because i wanted to know just if if anything comes whatever like i know what us is so strong intrinsically is at the i don't know just found that i know who we are that you can feel if it changes. I totally get that have been together now. Ten years yes. We had a two year break in between but like two years. I don't think. I knew that i knew that we had a nice little break in between. And that's not even a break that's like a break up. That is a break up. Were on a break. We moved cities and states. And i didn't know if we're going to get back together. Weren't you in texas or something. Yeah yeah moved to austin and But i feel like that same way. We have been through so much. Like i've been with him was twenty one years old twenty four. I'm older and we were the flip case of twenty. One russ was twenty three. I think okay when we started dating. I personally for me and every story is different. I'm so glad to have gone through all of this licensing developing together. Same even though it has been like the has been in a lot of yeah same but also most exciting phases you could ever be. And because i'm my okay. We survived so mu- so much like we have lived through all these things that i know. Now when we bring a child into this world like you are saying. I know who we are through and through like. There's there's nothing you could tell me about michael. Nothing nothing that could shock me saying you know. We're so i. I know him better. Probably than i even know myself. Because i'm around him and me better than i know myself. Yeah oh yeah yeah. We know how to fight with each other now like learning all that fighting nice fight nice nice because in the beginning we weren't perfect fighting me. I wasn't hot. it's to learn. Fighting is a learned skill. Okay so how did you guys learn how to fight. How did y'all fighting We it is a learned skill. Yeah it really is and involves respect. We not. I think he was so afraid of commitment. Which shocks a lot of people. Because thank god. I'm yours right. But he was so afraid of commitment that i had to learn how to fight with him really gracefully. Okay and really more so just disagreeing and we couldn't have big fights because that would freak him out. Okay so i kind of learned. Probably a bad trait to like stuff. It and find a way to sleep on it and i would find a way to say it kindly in the morning or like stuffing it for a long time. No no no. I couldn't suffer too long. But take ownership really zoom out of this situation because i wasn't as emotional the next day and actually a very wise. Yeah well i had to. They wouldn't work Yeah and be like all right. This is what i've done wrong. And i know that and this is what you didn't really hurt my feelings. Anything we disagree or whatever. It's usually hurt my feelings okay. We don't. I don't ever really get mad at him. I got mad at him one time specifically recently so probably more times that. I've just forgotten. But this one i came home is asked him to do the laundry. Put away the laundry. Because he wanted to go out. And i love working them choosing my my speaking life over this actually hate it saying i love working out or because i'm hoping i get there So you love. I love working at it so i paver. If you could hear this right now he'd be dying because he's like oh convincing me. I'll make you coffee. If we go work out. So in this scenario he wanted to work out. And i was like shirt. But i need you to do this. Because i don't have enough time in the day to do this. Get ready for bus call. And i have a birthday party tonight so walmart the birthday party i am. I need you to do this laundry and it was just putting things on hangers and high prime now more hangars because we were running low gave him. All of the tools is already alright. Stage was set. I come home. The hangers are in the prime now bags by the door. All the clothes are still out here and he was playing video games in the basement. I tell you. I think that's i think that's guys. I lost my ever loving light. did you blow up. Oh yeah anything no okay. Well yeah. I guess i was just so so angry because i was like i do everything for us. I asked you for help once. Which is if you do any any a graham. What are you. I'm a three three two two three three shaver helper. Yes so like this was my to wing freaking out because because now you're two wings in right so i always help him always have helped him. But that's what you were right. I love it. But i asked for help and his. He is a seven. That's what michael is. The day is long goes straight seven best day of his life. Everyday up has enough energy to do everything the happiest people they are. They're really happy. Bill michaels seven two and. I'm just like a thank god. You know i'm four. I am an emotional. What i bet you have a strong three ring wing. No yes you're not ever achieving. I am a four four four four. How does live and my emotions. Thank god i married a seven. I would just be at the bottom of the try three seven. I'm sure four seven is like it's like the perfect ten. Oh i like that like in achieving. Cause i have the achiever and he has the dreamer And so i'm like let's do this. Ron stoppable let's go okay. He has the energy that keeps me going yes. Xfl thing anyway my to wing your to explain. So when when they're in stress they go to eight. So i i like blue. I didn't like him back. But i just started cleaning and being loud music. I got it. I was like clearly you do like so mad. I was so and he never plays video games of all the days. I never. He's not that guy. 'cause i when he wanted to get an xbox i was like like i think guys who are obsessive video games. It's so unattractive to I was like. Do you really wanna be unattractive to me like. That's how i pitched and he's like but for him. I'm glad he has it because he never plays and if he does it's because he's actually so exhausted that he needs something to shut his mind off. Allies will keep dreaming and keep brainstorming and he never he never sits stops. Yeah and so it makes it and stop so. He really never does that. Ever and so. I was like all the days i was still. So how did that one end. We went to bed angry. Which did he defend his video games. Oh no no. He knew he definitely wrong. Yeah well at one point he jump up and start hanging things up. Oh yeah he rose to the. And i was like no forget it. I've got so. I go to sleep mad which i said this recently. On another podcast. I i think that's one of the things in the bible. That i'm like i disagree with you because it says like don't let the sun go down on your anger but mind you already down first of all. I have a clear head in the morning. It's better not to fight. When you're enrage oh you know. I have learned that about myself because i get activated kind of easily. I've worked on it a lot. Lot of therapy a lot of self realization. That like angers never a good thing. So if i feel angry and hot that is not the time to talk about something. It is definitely not the time. And what is it's like. There's a acronym it's like not when you're hungry tired. Halt halt angry lonely tired angry tired. Yeah and i was tired. I was exhausted. It was like the week of every christmas party every everything we had. Just come off. The road hosted two huge things at our house. And i was. I am done. I have nothing left. And that's i was like i asked for help. Wants which. I asked for help all the time. Just so dramatic. I was like you're not allowed to not help me. I help you all like speaking totally crazy and it happens though. Oh yeah you know it does. It's like i did that. A bunch in this podcast. Hey i hack all the time. Great with my coffee but i think that is one of the great things about marriage is learning each other learning. You're breaking points. Learning how to navigate those situations and not getting lost in them. Not thinking is the end of the world. It's just a moment. It was moment in the next morning the next it was so cute. He gave me a card and everything. I've never actually. I don't think i've ever actually been mad at him. And that was the first time in five years. Wow so this was. This was a moment. This was a moment. Yeah cards say it was just like thank you so much for everything you do for. Our family will love you so much. I'm so sorry you know like like she'd get mad more off so cute. I really don't get mad at him. It's mostly my feelings. Are hurt or i feel because i'm pretty i feel like i'm pretty good at recognizing i feel lonely so instead of like doing something to pull him in like in getting upset about something so he close. I just i just tell him. Yeah i need more of you. I haven't seen you enough. I feel like i'm in the background. What's your love language quality time. Okay and which is. Also why. I kind of have to be on the road uh-huh because of the i don't know i'm not words i don't need in that scenario. I guess i would have been of service. Yeah but yeah. I just dislike being around him in most of the time i can just be in the same orbit and we don't have to be alone but sometimes i do need just like any just you and me. Let's go for a walk. You're saying going for a walk is like a key to happy marriage. It's my keys to having marriage walks. Okay sex. I agree with that to some people aren't about that but like i mean i totally agree with that on a very regular basis. Yes yeah oh we thought it over this. We have where team like try for every day. I mean well. I maybe that seven. Who's just happy. Go lucky enjoys all things in life. Michael is like down every day and it. Yeah and so. I'm just like okay. Why would i fight this because yeah fun and be it's cheaper than therapy cheese therapy and it keeps you so connected. Yes it really does that drifts apart ever which ours never has. Because i decided one day. I was like i'm going to make this a priority same and we're like i heard it somewhere. Girls like crock. Pots and men are like microwaves. Have you ever heard that. Oh that like our like our sexual. Everything is more of a slow steady all day. Kind of thing. Yes yes so if they flirt with us all day in they but you just like kiss a guy for two seconds and they like being. We're ready you know we're more were it's all mixed together. Can't like separate like if you were jerk early in the morning we still feel that at night like it's guys are not as much like that absolutely in my experience i agree and so yes if i in my if i set my crock pot too low in the morning mike mentally then when it comes time whenever we do. I'm like yeah. I've been thinking about it of in processing and it makes me open and i can't stuff things because if that's going to happen we're gonna have had a conversation if i'm upset about something absolutely makes me. Communicate makes him really sentimental and suite all the time. Yeah i mean not all the time but modestly a lot i know i think having a healthy sexual relationship keeps your relationship. Yeah healthy. I feel like it's like insurance for your marriage. Okay wait at this great. Tell me why. Tell me what that means. I don't know. I just feel like it helps make you invincible. Like you're becoming your intentionally. You are one as a married couple. you're choosing to be one in just reiterating over and over. We are one we are one. Yeah and i think it's great. I love that i agree. Hey hi fi. Great marriage sex rape walks going for walks. I love a good walk. You get your communication you get i. I like to say the shoulder to shoulder. men communicate better shoulder to shoulder face. Face-to-face okay and get that in. My experience doesn't have read it somewhere. I can't super interesting like girls. Let's get coffee. That's like yeah like guys. If they were doing this podcast they'd be like this. he has. they're more open now. I'm totally much. So we go for a walk and he just dreams in. I enjoyed to. We'll we'll pray while we walk because you're not just sitting ruling bed and you're like in jesus name amen love that you're conversational. God we pray for this friend who has cancer like we say. No yes yeah. We'll pray for this person's marriage or i don't know it's more conversational doesn't end. I love that it's great wine wine. Yeah also leads to the great expert not too much though. Yes yes he is a little wino- i call him. Why is that like a negative turn. Well i just. It's a thing now. It's even on his apps. He just puts his glasses left. I was like yeah fine He doesn't do the thin ones. Just to reassure everyone who gets terrified. It's going to break out if they're like really fine ones he doesn't. He doesn't miss a certain consistency. Yeah it has to be like thickness semi indestructible. Yeah okay. but it's never too tie. Whatever i i love it. Yeah he He liked the psalm documentaries. Have you ever watched those o. S. o. m. s. becoming a master small. Ea oh and it's documentary. There's three of them. Now of these people trying to be masters in it is wild like they have to blind taste. Three whites threads say what year they are where they're from there's tundra is right or thousands of one. Yeah oh yeah in regions. There's only i think there's less than one hundred masters in the world. Well so the first documentaries really cool watching that process because it's like you have to be a savant like this is not a normal person's skillset. Yeah the funny part about is we watched the first one when it came out on on our tv and our old apartment living next to ms kathy and her cat in our little duplex drinking box wine. Watching this documentary about the airlines. I taste cherry law. Hardboard guard tennis balls. So funny we like watched and drank the cheapest wine basel because that's all we could afford. And so then the second one came out and we got even more the second one eight times. I'm gonna wash theirself on that second. One is my favorite tells you why all of the things are as important as they are. Okay like even how wine of was affected by war. And it's really cool so anyway it got him super into wine so i call him russell dick or som- when he doesn't swirling which is disgusting. I like hate when people do that but he does it. And then if it's a very nice wine uh-huh He loves it. It's really it's really cute. I love that very into it. And i get to reap the benefits of it. I'm like this one's delicious thanks bay. Hey thanks for scoping. Yeah exactly so. What are you watching on netflix. This goo it's not but Marvelous mrs maisel love love. we have two more episodes. I like refused to watch them. Because i don't i don't want it to be over. I'm just like that. i'm like it can't be over. We're catching up on. This is us because him for that. I love it every time. I'm in and i'm like okay. Love watching this. But i have to gear up for each episode. Yes 'cause i know it's going to just hug all my heartstrings. yes which. I love doing all the things. But he's less likely to yell it as a seven because sevens avoid pain in. That show has a minute so hits his mazel. Like watch the funny one you know. He's really sweet. He watches what. I wanna watch because a lot of i think it is kind of like a spiritual thing for me. I if it's really heavy and dark. I really really feel it Yes i mike. Why my praying against all of these heavy in dark things and then submitting myself to them and watching it. And i'm like this makes no sense so one day i was like if it's not it doesn't make me feel great. I'm not we have enough real stress in our lives. I don't need fake stress a love that so we're happy show people that's how we are to religiously y'all should watch last night on earth. Have you seen that yet. It's so silly. I we back it kind of took a little. It kind of is getting a little more intense but like michael's the same without that first. Episode is the best pilot of ever seen of last night on earth and he's like bowling with cars. The things are blowing up. That's one of my favorite pilots of all time. We watched the whole first season. And then i think we get lost interest in the second. It's kind of cheesy but it's yeah michael's the saying we're gonna remind me of january jones. Okay great thanks. Yeah she she's babe. Okay so obviously. I want to talk to you forever but you have to tabasco and there's laundry and all sorts. Yeah honey honey. But i like to leave all my episodes. Leave your light. So just obviously. You're super inspiring this inspiring. But what do you want people to know like what's a message you want to speak into people that Just love people love them hard and well and intentionally and i personally think being known is even better than being loved because in our culture everything is just like. Oh i love you. I love you love you but like nothing communicates love like actually investing in people in knowing them and knowing them well and in turn you're loving them well. I love that. Investing in people invest in people. Do you invest in a lot of people or do you are you. I reigned in. Yeah i used to do a lot. L. a.'s helped your in that in. Yes that's part of the reason you know about the apartment just to have alone time and everything. Yeah you said a quote like if you say yes. Everything is because you're not learning how to prioritize your nose or something. Yeah yeah just. Because you're i forget exactly what it was but if you're saying yes everything is only showing that you don't know how to say no Something to that effect like. I really learn that. Yeah 'cause one day. I woke up and i realized i was like. I've gone to coffee eight times this week in every single time. I was helping someone and it was not reciprocated. Yes and i was like okay. That's the two wing. I enjoy it. But you can't. But then i realized i hadn't seen my very best friends. The ones who don't need me. Yes in the best way. Is there reciprocal friendships. Yes and i was like dang like i really need reprioritize my life and so my circle got smaller and smaller. And unless it's reciprocal like it really doesn't get much my because there's not much of it left. I think that's so important. I feel like. I've been that same way i was. I've i've always loved to be social. No everyone loves everyone. I hit a breaking point in the past couple of years. I'm like i am tired. I love knowing so many people and being community. But saying it's like you just want to pour yourself into the relationships that really that are lifelong. Yeah aren't like and then if someone comes around and totally in it's great but it's like i'm not seeking out like they used to. I we had so many people live with us. Stay with us. Who needed us like those. Were beautiful times. But all of a sudden i was like at season's done yeah and that was the beginning of this last year in ever in. Thank god because if i had we had nothing left on we were so exhausted that if we were banking on anything in return from these people we would have been screwed not the people who stayed us but the ones who always needed our time and yeah we really had to rein it and i love that. I love you. you're so wise girl on. i'm serious. I love you so much. My sunshine over here got have a rain. Cloud to my number four like my four is like i'm sierra. It's a secret rain cloud there. Well i haven't seen it. I've worked on it a lot. Because like i'm just. I'm a romantic forest. So like i get so lost feelings. I've had to learn how to separate them all and realize like not get like go down the landslide with them. And that's my thirty s. I will say. I've gotten a lot better like therapy and michael team. There be great. Have to feel everything to the bottom like. But when i feel something and like affects me. I have to go to the bottom so hard this feel it and feel it and that's why i can recover quickly from things like some people will hit them and it will take them years to process or like months for me. I'm like in it all the way down immediately like there and then i just figure out how to get out of it so it's really intense but it's fast that's good. That's a good thing but it's also psycho like bipolar. Sometimes no yeah. We'll have freaking libido giver joining it followed look at american public university. We believe higher.

Curry McDaniel: Founder and Owner of Curry and Co Events talks about her spiritual awakening after her darkest days and how she jumped from from corporate America to owning her own flower and Event company.

New episodes published every other Thursday listen to Katie's grip on iheartradio APP, or on Apple podcasts wherever you get your podcasts. So. I have my friend. mcdaniel joining joining joining me joining need. Eight o'clock. And have a glass. I have a glass of wine. Toast! I'm so excited. About how we met and I want you to tell a story. And I also WANNA say curry is one of the kindest people we met, and had such a great day, and I feel like connected instantly like I really enjoyed your perspective and your personality right away and I love what you're doing with your life and I can't wait for you to talk about on this podcast. But you sent me just just as a nice have a great day kind of thing, a- box cookies that were so that were handmade and decorated and. Gosh what a sweetheart you are! That is so kind just Timmy cookies just make my day. For me Always had this idea of every single person that I meet. I WanNa take the best thing about them and I want to take that with me. Let's run through that list of what you've collected. Yeah so. When somebody okay, so the thing about it is! There's so much like social media in there so. I just feel like people are disconnected in the Times are having real authentic friends I can't even tell you how many times I would be out in public, somewhere or marketing from own business or being at a mixer or whatever? and. The first thing I do is typically go to the bar because I'm like. Oh Jesus! I'm around a bunch of nineteen twenty year. Old Girls who are just graduated from college in Hospitality, and they're all six foot gorgeous. Glam Avante though the. All they want to talk about is their hair lashes and I'm like damn. I gotta be drunk to do this. Shit wants them. So when I go to these events. On facebook with these people on instagram prints with these people, but they don't even say hello and I thought that like years you know, and it's just like, and then I find myself when you become popular. Whatever that means. They didn't want to be your friend, and they want to send you a message, and they want to invite you to do things in its dislike now encounter. The same personal was the Hor-. Nothing's changed. When I come across genuine women who have? Nothing but they just bare their souls to me and show me the type of people that they are, and it's no. You would know who had five dollars. You know who have fifty thousand dollars. It's just were all here. And we're showing our true selves, and so when I come across these women that truly make an impact in my life, and they changed something they they make that spark. Come on that light. Come on for me. That needs to be celebrated in. It's not I didn't care if anybody put cookie on instagram or not odd just wanted you to know like. Hey, you did something for me. You touched me in a way. Everything shitty right now with Kobe being home, and being quarantined a just WanNa make you smile just WanNa? Make you feel good because when I spent time with you, you did that for me, and so it was literally eight women. It was My friend Angela profit, WHO's like a celebrity wedding planner at Angela's Angeletti to me. She was my business coach and I wanNA contest with her and we'll talk about that A. A little bit too, and that's kind of what started that. So all these women and people always say, how do you know? Give me the little stink times. How do you know her? Or how do you know her and I'm like well? We just spoke like regular people do even dogs speak, and we just created a friendship and because I always just try to be myself not fake or only or anything like that. We just connect on these different levels, and so for me. I was just like no. Everybody's getting a cookie. Certain women in. It's going to be toilet paper in. It's going to be Fabulous I. mean. I just adore you. Curry to tell me how your business will. You have an amazing. It's luxurious. I don't even know what I'm saying that word correctly luxury. Like. Planning, it's called Curry and Co events and check out your instagram to everyone listening especially Abeer Nashville Ever get back to hosting events again. Everyone needs to call you because you are so detail oriented. You are so aware of who your client is in what they are wanting. I mean I stopped instagram hardcore to. The bottom by. Like you can see the growth so how how basically upset this before people is I kind of wanted to know the story like. How did I get started in? So my friend was a big leap of faith for you. This is not your original career or job. You let original job and career to go full time into party event planning, which I love curry, because people who kind of risk. I'm like. Yes, ma'am. It's scary, and it's amazing comes with a lot of attempt to say fear because. This journey. Okay. This journey has literally been life changing. There's some things going on in my life that she would never know because I constantly will have a smile. I feel like if I got an opportunity to wake up. And do this again. Then you gotta find the good because being in the dark place is really scary. For. ME, yeah So what happened is I've always loved interior design stuff like that I. In College was like accuster coordinator at Marshall's. So at all the wonderful stuff off of Detroit before it even hit the floor for the customers, and so I would just have this fabulous apartment as hot as a team. You know as a someone in college. I just had this really awesome bathroom, and and do as in matchy her and you. You thought I was just fabulous and I'm like no I. Just work at Marshall's and I know what kind of. Of Tastes like so always knew that it was there and I started interning or ELM interior designer in Florida in Tallahassee and I in her during the Governors Need Chin for the holidays, and then we also did private on homes, so it's like the not so pretty stuff like ordering tile, and during the measurements and all that stuff that people don't. It's not glamorous the behind the scenes of interior design the. Big Deal though 'cause you got that internship while you're in college. Is that what you're saying?

It really truly is so the truth of the matter is. Is that I made the decision probably two days ago to get a divorce. It's it's a this year would make eleven years And there's been. No infidelity you know for a while. And I've always tried to look over it in the past it on. And try to work on it and tried to get counseling and try to do all these things so that at the end of the day when I looked at the boys I would say I literally tried everything. You know what I mean. And so. Win The infidelity started about five years ago. I noticed that it caused a lot of stress and anxiety on me. And that's when I started looking into different medications in China figure out because I was having these panic attacks. I was not sleeping like it was just terrible. And that's kind of where it all started. If you want me to be honest. I don't want you to share anything. You don't share their, so don't feel then I'm okay. Okay okay okay. I realize that I'm not. Broken I'm not all shake not. Yeah you to go through all of these sayings. You have all these questions and you're like. You know I'm going to be a single mom again. In this time it's what four boys and not to win an all of these things, so you're getting a lot of raw emotion from me in each started dealing with the anxiety. I knew that certain things would help me. Anu that flowers did not talk back. They were able to me as long as I nurtured them and gave them what they need. And I you know a gave them water and took care of them and fed them I knew that they were going to be okay and every time. I do flowers. I, always tell people like the people who helped me your Matheson's. They always get so annoyed because I play eighties, music and everybody can tell what kind of mood a man based on what kind of music is playing you know and so for me. A lot of music therapy has been wanted the things that have helped me get your life period, and it's not in here. I am. Just to go back a little bit. I'm originally from Miami Florida. And everybody's like Oh fabulous you. No you ever watched that episode of I forty eight on any see where that guy died my house five houses down. and. You should see the look on their face. Sorry, you're getting. It's come on. Keep him quiet for little bit. So my dad worked in did worked for pharmaceutical company called Baxter any also did sales for AOL Williams, which is now primerica financial services in so indistinct or neighborhood in the ghetto. They were wanting to build a community, so they built about fourteen houses to try to help build the neighborhood in my family. was one of the ones that qualified for one of those homes in the neighborhood, and so we went to school thirty minutes away from where we lived all of my friends, growing up were all Cuban Hispanic Dominican when I was little, I spoke fluent. Spanish had no choice none of my friends. They were like all you know like real. Hispanic I'm talking real deal. So. It was a completely different culture kind of growing up in Miami, and so my dad was very influential on what how we were as kids because we were in the middle of the hood, and we were listening to Jimi Hendrix, and we listened to the off the wall album, and I have a love for the cranberries that nobody would ever. My Soul. You Know Avia Yanni all of this stuff that you would never think a girl for your Nad. He was all about this. Young my dad was something special his. On He is his name is Ron Ron Malone. He's a science teacher. department head. He went to two lane, and play basketball, and was the gymnast and Loved Music and He's just he's A. He was a great dad I mean he was a great dad? And it's so weird because it's like. When my parents got divorced, that was not a great transition, but because of their of how they dealt with it. Is Warm, able to deal with my own divorce now the way that I am. What did he sign from them? So they were terrible. Oh, my parents were like. They were just not good. It was like taking this child and taking this child, and then it was like middle of it. Yes. It was like every man for himself, because my oldest siblings were already in college, so it was literally out of sight out of mind for them, but for me, my my brother and I were the youngest. We were still there in Miami. Kind of dealing with that so. There was just a lot of emotion from that in saying all the wrong ways to deal with the divorce. That's such an empathetic feeling person because you felt so much at such a young age. That's a good question. I don't know. I don't know I. There was just this moment There was just this moment. Where I kinda connected with God and everything changed. What was? Working on me I'm not like. I'm I'm not mother Theresa. Will curse you know. Work in progress. You know a number in with that. What was the known like over you in? What was it like? Actually it wasn't long ago. It was right before met you really a all. Oh Yes, I've always had a relationship with Christ but it. But it got deep. Deep recently and Financially. It was a struggle. I was going through some things. I I my. My husband's slept with somebody else. I was stressed out at my job. I was GONNA get. To I don't want you have to air your personnel. Okay? They're going to be okay to air the. Has No opinion. Okay, okay. Okay I just wanted to like that you I. Don't want you all feel like you. Let me tell you. Like. Oh, Gosh I! Talk too much. Twenty twenty is about living in your truth. Yeah, and I made a decision that I was no longer gonNA. LIE TO MYSELF OUT WE'RE GONNA lie to others whatever that means whatever falls in that category. I was going to be honest and raw real about it because I told everybody says something's weird about twenty twenty everything that's going on is gonNA. Come to a head. It's so weird in in it. Did just that indigenous that so here I am this girl in Miami getting all of this creativity from both my mom and my dad, my dad was the musical influence. My mom was the creative person she saying she danced, she painted. She has the green dominant. Tell people all the time like we had the most beautiful roses in the front of our house with the kids kept stealing our growth. And they would sell them on the corner bimonthly. Even have decent flower disabled, you know. But those are my Miami stories, and so the combination between the both of them kind of created the woman that I am today and so I on I learned how to hone in on what I was feeling in identifying who I am because for a long time. I was just a mother. In that was molly role, and it was like no curry. You're not in a lot of women feel that way. It's easy to. Do Yeah we do I mean my oldest is twenty. So twenty seventeen, nine in three, so I've been raising babies two decades. In you know so in. All of this, we all just think that we're supposed to be moms and worship. This is just our only role in I realized that no I can have my own life, and I can have my own company and I can and I've never really taken that company to the next limit, because I've always worked fulltime and had the kids, so I never wanted to take more than two to three wedding, so when people go to my instagram, they're like Oh. My God you have beautiful work. Why don't you have more followers and I'm like girl when you're trying to get? On the damn cable. You don't care follower. You're just trying to take back to get into man. and. Take your dummies your Melatonin, so you can get a full night's rest.

There's so much to handle and let's not forget. You're raising four boys on top of IT I. Mean That's enough in itself. Anonymity Dog, yes. I know it so much, but I said one day I freelance for a lot of floors. When they have big weddings or they need extra hands, they call me and so one day I was doing a wedding on fair. A famous was a football player I think his name is met and Burger. And his fiancee is white now. Her Dad used to be a coach for Tennessee and I was helping my friend Alex with the flower shop and I saw, and I'm like. Upping to centerpiece that was was like right on their table was like one that had done. And I'm and I saw it in publication somewhere and I'm like nobody's ever going to know that that my hands touch that because I'm doing it and doing it under somebody else's company and I and I, don't mind, but I said Curry. If you WANNA, do more girl, you gotta get more weddings in. You got to put yourself out there or and so I said okay. I'm going to cap it at six weddings this year, and and we'll see you know we're God leads me but I've always had a passion for design for just all things beautiful in luxuriance than I, remember being in a car like being in a truck and driving with. Alex who owns the flower shop and I said Alex. if you give me one piece of advice, what will it be? She says Curry. When you find your signature style, sweetheart, the floodgates are gonNA open in house. I was taught us so many different winning different floral designs that I can do a lot of different types. About that because I am not my I. Don't even understand your world at all, but it makes sense the flora world.

Have you know the Boho when? Were you WANNA scale greenery all over the walls, and even though it's beautiful, it's cannon at my thing. If my style is very classic Romance I want people to look back at their wedding photos ten years from now and say Oh my God. It's still elegant. It's still you know. It's still. Relevant. This is not some trend day. Yes I have one time to get this right. This is not a style. Shoot visit. Prompts. This is an actual wedding, so I take it. Very seriously and I. Get close with my brides in in it starts from a process. It starts from me looking at their pinterest page, and looking at fabrics, and looking at linens, and looking at Polka dots, and looking at all these different elements to Kinda create something magical for them. I mean I look at a piece of crystal and my. Life will come apart I mean there's just something about blush in crystal benches is my life, but I'm just like Oh, so I mean. I. Love what I do I.

The Guy can afford you any and allowed to have a minimum because you know you have to have a minimum in this industry on because I'm not going all the way to to bill me for just a bouquet. No, it's not happening again. We have a minimum, but I've had people say you know I love your stop and I'll work with and I'll try to get to their budget and do what they want and try to get something gorgeous, because that means more to me for you to come to me and say I love your stuff. I'm not sure I can afford you and so. There's I bless every single one of my bribes. Always. Tell them when they book me. If you see something at your wedding, they you know we didn't talk about. You did not pay for it. That is my gift to you. So! Every single wedding has a little surprised that they don't know about. Until the day. I! Got Married I was lost. I was like what are you go? It was ten years ago that I got married so I'm like so we got married at that little chapel that you see when you go to Aubrey. Little White Chapel on the right side, and then when the hotel and I came, they had a restaurant called the eighteen grill. Now it's called. I Dunno west, end or something crazy like that, but we just got twenty of our closest family members in we. Had A private dinner in the back. And and I. It's. Not Sad about the situation. I'm not sad about the situation My husband is a great person. He's a great dad. He sock, says husband. And that's okay. And at. Don't question God. I know that things are going to be good and Mike. We just had a conversation before jumped on with you and I was saying. I want us to be okay and be there for the kids. They are our priority. We have to put whatever we have aside and I told him. That will never disrespect you. I will never. Busted Jeweler screaming at you or anything because I saw what happened with my parents and I don't want that to happen. An asset, it's unfortunate because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you, but God had plans and I said. I love you but I need to love me more. Yeah War. Here we are undoing. Doing weddings got a call from this healthcare company out in Franklin. San, we would love to bring you on. We really need you and we're going to pay you a lot of. We're going to give you a monthly stipend for your car and I was like sold right. Now. We know when it comes to weddings that it's not consistent unless your actual florist, a brick and mortar people can come in and buy things. It's not consistent so I took that job and I was. Some owners that were berry not about the patients, but more about the money. Dan Code. You did. What was it like oh? It was horrible I was at work. I was an admissions director for skilled nursing and rehab slash nursing, home and I started feeling very cold and very weak. And I told him I said I need to go. And I said I don't feel good. And I came home, and this is when Kobe I. Kind of came, so nobody knew nothing else. Saying you can go get tested here, but no nobody knew how to test. Nobody knew where to go. They were sending to health department. Health Department was saying no, we don't we're not. You gotta go to the hospital. Nobody knew anything so I had to get out at home and then. Thomas DOT IT Is that your husband. Yeah, so we were both sick Cortina in this house with the kids. who had you take care of the kids? We had to take care of them with covid. How did you do that? When your mom? You found the strengthen. Yes, so, what did you have to do every day that? I can't even imagine? We took shifts. You know it was like okay.

We were feeling terrible. And then we are was feeling bad for about eight or nine days the tenth day we start feeling better. levay day started building better the twelfth day we both started having breathing problems no way. And I was on an inhaler. And I was struggling to breathe Thomas. Said if you're breathing, gets any if you if it gets any worse than I'm, GonNa take you to the hospital, so he went to summit hospital. In his test came back negative, but we believe that it was out of one of those negative or two. It was taken too early before they were able to catch it or before the test was able to. Detect it, and this is what it was all brand new, so there was nothing moving seamlessly like there was no. The left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing when. I got my results because I'm in the medical field I. Know who to call what to do. So I had to call the lady who was Over. Over diseases I can't think of. Had Call Her from summit had her office number and I was like. Hey, girl! Hey can have my. Results you know what I mean, and so finally after thirty days, we were cleared I went back to work. And they were like hey, because you were out, the marketer was the marketer and the social worker been covering your office since you gone since he cannot go market and go to the hospitals right now. We're GONNA. Let him stay in that role until the end of the month and you can help social services. Catch up and. Find also happy to be alive. I didn't care what they ask you to do. I was like sure great then three weeks later. They say we're going to keep him in that role. We're GONNA. Take your job away from you. I've been here before. and. They're like in any any.

We, want you to fix it in basically be his assistant and do all this working. Guess what ELSE WE WANNA? Take Twenty seven thousand dollars away from. Then at that point you're like and now I'm going to start my own business. This is the push up needing. At you ask God to give you signs and I couldn't say in how somebody could treat me like that would y'all. When they made that decision, they didn't care about my kids. They didn't care about anything they just knew. that. They wanted to get me out of the door and I don't know why I'd. Pat Costly. That's the first thing that went to my head, but the wave. It was I'm Alan businesses sometimes. It's like it's just so hard core in that in the business world, isn't it? I think because I'm so open and honest. I expect people to tell me the truth to and I had to realize that everybody's not liking curry. They're going to take that. Light them with to the grave. But in that moment, I learned this from. Eliza? Speed Eliza. I learned from her. She's the best. I was angry for twenty minutes. And that's all I allowed it to give me I said. I'm just going to be angry for twenty minutes I'm going to move on and I was frustrated because the lack of communication and how they did me and all of the stuff you know I'm traveling from all the way from Lebanon into to to Frankland. y'All could have called me. Who Would Have Been Nice? You know but it was all a part of the plane and I'm like okay guide understand so when you so all of this stuff was going on All of this stuff was going on felt. it was it was getting dark. is getting dark for automatic with a lot of his environment were driving to work in not feeling anything. The super non doubt. SUPERMOM DIAL! Don't even know how I made it to work. was just kind of gliding with this car on eight forty like donating miles per hour didn't know what was going on in this moment came over me where it was just like maybe I don't need to be here. Maybe. Maybe it wasn't maybe I need to be here. Meaning this job. Maybe I didn't mean to maybe didn't need to be on earth. It was scary. These clouds opened up. And this light shine through. Like at that moment literally not trying to crown here. With you. Listen, but when you think about God's grace and mercy. It is a beautiful thing. Because, there's a lot of people who could not come out of that dark place. You know and they moved to alcohol drugs. A bunch of different things and for me. It was like I had these beautiful cades. You know life is okay. It's shifting and you've got to trust the plan, but you say he and that such a good point curry, sometimes in the shift things fall and break, and it gets messy in like the earth floor rearranges. But then when it all settles down, you have a new earth in. It's like wow, that is so true. Is So scary because it shaking up everything we know, but sometimes what we know is you need to move on from where we are. That chapter's done, and the route of it is to push you out of it. Is Like I need you go in this direction. In during that time I'm literally eight. My feelings away in hours again like forty fifty pounds during this time with an eight one period of this job due to the Strip s and everything else. That was going on and. I, am so happy of where I am right now and everybody's like. How could you be year in the process of? Because y'all don't understand how good God is when you focus on him. And you focus on being a good person and a good mother and an honest business person. Everything else will work at thou- foul. We want God to write it on a sticky note and give a heads up of what he's thinking about doing with our life, but it's not that easy. Don't want God's a mess of the plans.

Yeah because it used to be like I don't see raising that means like I. Love her legally I'm not prejudiced. Nothing like that and now. But now it's saying we actually need to see race because we need to see what the black culture has had to carry the oppression. You off had to live through. We need to see this. We can't just be on neutral. And that's the thing. I'm confused chew. I get so confused because curry in my heart I like I was having a hard time today.

Let me chill for a minute, please you know what I mean, her mom. So this is the thing. And I've had this conversation with my sister and I'm giving an talking to you just like talk to her. Talking to you just like I would talk to Thomas or anybody. With no filter. This world is terrible. It is. You have to be that little bit of Ray of light. So much darkness that you have to be that Ray of light. You can protect your kids as much as you can. And being good situations and blue, mindful of WHO's around you when you're like now you gotta be out.

And talk to them about Brianna, Taylor, and do those things I do what I can K- I can't save the World I'm not Martin Luth became, nor do I wanna be Martin Luther King. He was a great man, but I don't have that type of power. I'm just trying to keep it together in eighteen forty six. Without this place falling apart. You know what I mean. Like, everybody has their own thing that they need. The kids have what they need. Your husband needs what he needs from you. You need what you need from yourself. You try to be a good daughter. You try to be a good friend to your friends. Everybody needs all different attention for senior career. That now you're running your own career. You are footing that entire operation. You have all that pressure at flight, and then on top of it you watch the news and there's so many things at break your heart I'm like. I can't like sometimes I I literally have these moments of God on. What am I supposed to do with all this knowledge I know that is terrible things happening because I know there's good in the world to and I know you know that we have these sparks that everyone has to find, but. What do we do with all this terrible knowledge and I'm just like I think what you're saying is right. We have to do what we can do our lives with our. Facing your own life, you can't throw this wellbeing of your kids away like you're saying. Even though you support the 'cause like you can't risk the consequences of what would happen.

They don't WanNa do that. They saw their families saw their loved. Ones marched with Martin Luther King they're not that those are the the generation of the people that will stay at a job for sixty something years and retired from that job then you have. The genetics who have a little bit of both we have the creativity that the millennial has we have the passion that they have, but we also have that realistic stuff that our parents have it. We're kind of in the middle which makes us these. I think the most amazing because we're the best of both worlds, but I leave that to the young ones. Let them do it. Let them do it. Let them be that I will support them, but it's just like. What is there? What are the young ones Bob is change? Their Bob is we see what's going on. We're going to actively get off our butts and do something and I applaud them I. Applaud them and I support and I do with the way that I can without putting myself in jeopardy without putting my family's life in jeopardy telling you.

So all the police officers know Brian, because they've all come to his basketball games or his football games, so he can drive around Mount Julie didn't feel safe, but this whole time when he was away from college, people don't know.

Ask the. All you can do you have to tell got to cover you until all of my kids assist you. Guys are covered by the blood of Jesus. You know, and I know that it. You know people are like my sisters like. Deep Curry, or when did you become so? It's not about that when people are dying.

When you're dealing with someone who is stepping outside the marriage you do look at yourself is if you're to blame I, can totally some. Pretty not M I not. Stylish, enough, and my not getting too old. You start questioning these things, but there's light bulb that goes off this a ha moment word think it's not you. It's really them. You know I was. Talking the other day, What you're saying happiness I think this is a book title or some sort of title. Happiness is an inside job in its told. It's totally inside job like you're saying like on the inside and outside, but it's up to you. It's up to me. It's up to everyone like it is up to us to be happy in. We have to do the work to become that and it's hard work a lot of the time and. We got to protect it and nobody. Happy People can add to your happiness like I mean of course like our children I mean Allah Gosh so much joy. They bring their lives an all the other feeling, stupid so much joy in love. You know like people can add your happiness, but if you don't have it within yourself. Then, no one can give it to you. Know, it's almost like It's almost like I was had discolored to me in this light about me, and then all of a sudden it just kind of went gray. And then I. Don't know why reference everything to a or cartoon, but it's like trolls. You Know Avenue trolls when they at the end of the movie when they all Kinda just lost their color lost their music and lost their strings, all of the trolls turn gray, but they realized that the music was not coming from a string it was already in their souls, and they had the music inside them, and so when they realize that that's their color started coming back. And I'm just like. These are grown adult people that create these movies for kids and these movies have meaning. And they have great moments in bad moments laughing moments like there's a documentary actually on behind the scenes of the making frozen to and on plus when you watch Chit. I mean if you're creative, you're gonNA, absolutely love it because it shows everything from the beginning of how these newbies are made, I mean literally. It took six years to make Rosen. Dave been worked. Yeah, and and it's like so is so deep, but the meaning behind the movie. It's the. Try to find joy wherever I can, and if that makes me a little kid I'm telling you when I get depressed girl I go straight to the Disney store. And that and I go I go to operate. Go to the to the Disney store, and then I. Go get the almonds. Yes and that's like my. Day Is. To. Let the kids go and have a good time and buy something and I don't care I. Don't look at the Price Tag. Just get what you want it. That's night-clothes, and and I have this addiction to coffee mugs that people don't know, but I have ever single Disney coffee mugs. You could possibly think of apples dizzy makes you feel good. Does he's happy? And then you've got people who try to ruin it for you and tell you how dark Walt Disney wasn't. I'm like daring. Something! Like every good thing is getting ruined. The que say coming to ahead. We gotTA deal with it. Is, but you do just focusing on. Being. The you that God has called you to be. Can't get totally totally consumed with all the pain and suffering else. We're going to be ineffective in the world at tonight. Tommy myself if I? Feel so sad in broken for everything terrible going on in the world, and what good am I because I'm not going to use my light in my. Whatever I'm supposed to do, however I put my love into the world. I got to put that eleven to the world. I can't be so broken. With every. Agree, but like it's hard. I get wrapped up in my feelings for how sad the world is because it's so heavy, but then I also like okay. There's also love and I got to be a part of the love. You know I've got to be a part of the love in like shed, light or canned like you're doing it. We got to be part of the love. And we all gift. Here's a bad day. You'd get glasses the wide and you say hey, we're going to. Our moral. All you can't do you know what I mean. My guts eggs. If This Day has gone to hell, I'm GONNA drink wine I'm going to take these two Melatonin Ghani's in I. Am going to start the makes day in in. In I know you gotta go? And I know we're wrapping up. But you gotta hold onto your joy. You GotTa fight for that, and you have to be selfish and a little way in so when somebody calls me or when like my mom, if she calls me and she wants to lend. Had Limit What should tells me. I'm like because you can't I. GotTa protect his happiness. It's hard for me to wake up in stay. Happy and stay joy bowl, and I cannot have anybody else. Take that for me, and they don't understand I'm so connected to people that I allow motions to transfer onto me. A very. You're an empath, metoo. I have to cut it off from like girl if you call me and usable. That's. The problem. Like I'm not even I'm not. They're pissed. You're not paying for me. You're not paying in me. There's no cash shop going on. I'm not billing your insurance I will be an ear for you to listen, but you also gotta give me something.

Why shouldn't the next great podcast come from you? and. Laugh. No one. Is. I am so so excited to have Lori. Joining me who? You I. Want to know or no bat as beautiful. It's like modern classic. It's like edgy. It's like timeless. It's. Colorful but it's also muted. It's natural, but it makes you feel electric that is your style you're the. Interior designers at the correct terminology. That is, yes you're this interior designer that I have fallen love with on instagram and you're in Nashville that's where you live. I'm here. Is. where We're but I'm here you're everywhere you're based in Nashville we have turned mutual friends that I've never really gotten to know you but I am such a fan. What you do you have just this is that to me it's everything that my brain would want my house look like because I want all the classic and the timelessness and all of that. But I also WanNa, feel spunky and crazy and I, wanted to colors and I want wallpaper is but you want it all to bland and you don't want people to walk in and be like what either like. This is so boring or like this is so loud. It's like you do it. You do so well, and so obviously fired up about you and I want to hear Badger Journey. I want to start with. Everyone who follows instagram get ready for a little treat because Laurie has a mean section called screen shots under. Monday. And it on your. Hours combing an archive, but it's called highlight reel my highlights. Yep. Let me just share one that made me pee my pants. I can't help, and so I can't myself. I really good. Sometimes I like might have to ask a friend like is this too far? Am I going to get fired for my current jobs they're like? Fly Let it fly. It makes me love you because you have such like a big time job like you're so cool and you're doing like really huge exclusive like mansion houses. But yet you have this humor and I'm like Oh my God I'm obsessed with utahns million. Okay. This one Made Me Legit pee my pants and laugh out. Loud. I can't wait. Says me okay. Just be cool. Walks into social situation bumps it to fake plant accidentally Sneeze Bart. Very. Late, who cannot relate? God. Like your eyebrows done, you've got your boat talks working you. Go to that you just. Just full. Sometimes it just doesn't come together. So talk about this fewer. Are you just this like because you're still put together like you have the best style you've got your beautiful you're so like poise and all that like if I didn't know if you didn't have instagram if I didn't know you had humor, I would kind of be intimidated by you because I'm Mike, you're breaking bad ass to the Max I don't even know how to speak to you but then you humor like, okay, we can relate can hang out with you. Well I think I think really that is why my like career plus instagram was such a really good mix because I think design can be so intimidating I think people can be so you know put off by it so fancy and she's so fancy and I can't do that and it's just completely Inaccessible and they can't get to it and they would be afraid to you know don't come to my house I don't want you to see my bathroom and I don't want to see my sofa and all that kind of stuff and I feel like instagram gave me an opportunity to talk to people like through that little camera whole. And Sit, and then just kind of talk about what we're doing like Holy Shit guys I failed today. Here's what happened and it was horrible and I got yelled out today and years what happened in it's like I can't help but reveal. The way that it's sort of unfold in real life and the humor part of it I feel like is it's what keeps me from getting too serious like I'm pretty driven. And and I can be you know kind of head down working striving I'm like striber a three. Or three on the program, the achiever who three and so I think it really helps like I. think it takes some of that like sharp edge off the whole thing and says, oh, but also I'm ridiculous and probably GonNa cuss it verse meeting and I'm going to tell jokes in the Arabia's needs to talk about. Whatever? It just makes it to me. It's just so much more relatable because honestly like is pretty is the pictures are pretty I hope that that the pictures are it really is like someone's bathroom where they brush their teeth and get ready and hate sham. Brad. It's real like we pick the toilet with you. How Weird is that? We talk about it when like I'm really sorry you're going to have to sit down this toilet here in this showroom. And see if it's something because you said, you wanted to square toilet but have you ever sat on one like it's your life right? So the real life I just think that that it all mixed together and if it got too stuffy or by got too big for my Britches and lost that and really just made it so serious and high design and I can't just. I, I think he would lose interest I would lose interest. So you are in the Your plan with the big boys and girls, and you are like dealing with multi million dollar houses like I was checking out this house Oh my God. So everyone go follow her on instagram. It's called Mrs Paranjape Hey. It's M. R. S.. P. A. R. A. N. J., A. P.. So follow you on instagram. I was looking at this house called the. Old Quarters Holy. Macaroni and cheese that house is ridiculous in my new did the whole thing? It's it's crazy like I can't. I like ten years ago. Me Can't believe what today me gets to get my hands on what I get to design who I get to work with these incredible personalities, incredibly talented people, athletes and music and entrepreneurs, and all these like super talented people in their own right and then to get to work on a house like that that was. Eighteen thousand. Square feet eighteen thousand square in it's like built to the Max it's like a castle but a modern cool like present day What do when you are handed? A job like that and they say, okay, we trust you with our entire House I. Mean that is a huge deal. Okay. so He's all blend. To, get real thing right is the thing. So this year for my business and for myself personally, this is the year of trust. So I have started, I've been working on my business for twelve years and I started with you know, Oh, help you pick a fabric to recover your chair and make recommendations on window treatments but you'll probably buy them online because that's least expensive and then we've sort of things grass. So we're here where we are but really it hasn't been until maybe last year that my very first client said. I just leave. I just believe I believe that that you have listened I believe that you have heard what we want from this and. Whatever it is that you think gets us to where we'd like to go is is what we would like to do. And would send tax I would ask a question. Texan they would write back we trust you. That so That is so awesome though like in the beginning, that's not what they said. Like in the beginning it was they doubted me and then I doubted me or I said something can I felt confident saying but then I sorta would backtrack and that's a process like to the point of having the confidence to. To be a steward for root for budgets like. What I'm dealing with at this point. Had, build my own confidence and believe in myself and and build the trust in my decisions. So then when someone comes to me and asks for real advice for the biggest investment, they have ever made in their entire life and not as advised that like to outfit the whole thing. Right so and now I mean it's just unbelievable like. Now we start with plans on paper and then we take it all the way through to furnishings and we fill it. So what I say is will start paper. We'll get to know you all understand what you want, and then at some point, the builder when he's finished will hand me the keys not you. And then I will move you in my team and I will come in and we'll bring an art installer window treatment installer wallpaper installer will the trucks in the deliveries and everything and will move it all in get a completely ready will light a candle will turn on the music and then then you can come home. Oh Dude freak out I mean this is like your life the Cosso of design late literally, how are you like dying because like this little brainchild like you just you see the plans, you get to know the person in the family you get their vibe and then your little wheels wheels just start turning talk to me about that process the wheels start turning and like how do you? How do you do it based on the personality based on the vision that comes to your mind like how do you do that dance? How do you work that? Well I mean I think for for one thing my client base oddly my client base they're in their twenties and Thirties So they're they're exceptionally young to be doing this level of prominent Carney Dang I. Know I know so they're in their young so there they. All of my clients somewhat come to me asking for help to execute what they think they might want. But they need affirmation that yes should I should I build it this beggars that to migrant stomach sometimes and lyles to. Those two too big and we have to like kind of scale it back. Especially, if it's brand new to them this idea of building at this level if it's brand new to them, they really want help they want more help than someone who's done this two or three times because they have competence these younger people they don't have the confidence yet. Right they need partner to help them when you mess it up like. Like you said if this is the first time, someone's dropping this kind of cash, you WanNa mess it up like your buildings dream home like it's worth hiring looking like you to make sure it's perfect. So so now they trust me so I take that responsibility really seriously like my jobs amazing I get to do amazing things and deal in. The latest and the greatest, the most beautiful and in all of those things. But I, it's really important to me that they feel respected that I respect their budget. Or to communicate with them about budgets and things like that. So a lot of it like underneath all that pretty is really really important stuff to me relationship with with my clients that that we're in a good spot and that we have that trust. Then comes what you're asking about which is. Like, what if? What if the all of the Bedroom Walzer upholstered? You know what if? What if we put the pool inside? What if like those sorts of things like we begin to imagine what these things could be or I learned from experience and say you know what we did this one time what would be really cool them. You know we have this big beautiful family rim what if what a little cozy Dan with a low ceiling and the only thing that fits sectional, all the Walzer Navy and in the sofas navy and the rue ceilings low in just a TV and you feel like safe and there's no windows and it's just chill time and you can take your broth and watch TV. Like that to me is how I would rather do design. Then I have the most exquisite fabric that just got in from France and I'd like to find a way to use it in your home you. By that's the thing with you is it's the vibe when I when you post every time, you post them like. I would love that like were Michael and I. We could talk about moving forever and building and all that stuff and we live in east national. We love it so much. But now I've like my mind we kinda even almost moved once and sort of like designed to house and then. We decided not to do it. So like my mind is now able to see on a very small small level, how this all works like I had never even known that you could pick out a different handle for a cabinet in your kitchen like I didn't know there's like twenty seven, thousand different options, and like you know like the the light fixtures in the how tall you on your ceiling I mean, this is like the bare minimum basic stuff. But like now, I can start seeing how this all can come together as a piece of art and it could go a million different ways but every time. I love it. Well you're sweet to say that because I'm really what I'm trying to do is. Take what they've asked me like what I say is beautiful is easy. Just believe it will be beautiful. Done done. That's easy. But what I'm care more about is the stuff that sort of hold it up like all the iceberg underneath the water. that. The top is the pretty. You Know Lake, take a picture and the colors pleasing and in the contrast is there or it's really soft and neutral or whatever we went for but. Like a question I, ask all the time is where do you drink coffee and at what point of the morning drink coffee like I get out of bed I work out I do this and then I have coffee and I or I. I wake up early and I sit down and I really enjoy my cup of coffee by myself. Okay. Okay. Where do you do that? And when you sit down, do you put your feet up underneath you or? So you need like a big cozy chair or would you rather sit by a window and you want lots of light like that to me is so much more important than whether they like this blue or this blue how do you not thank like that? What is that news that? How do you know how to be? How do you know how to be like that? Well maybe I mean maybe some of it at this point maybe I get to say twelve years and maybe I, could just say some of it is experience that I've gotten the wrong chair for someone or have not paid attention to how they really you know Oh, I thought it was so pretty and so I got them that Sofa but then they're sitting there like stiff. As boards and the husband is six foot four and it's his legs are too long and her feet or so short that heard legs stick out they don't touch the grounder like the practical I mean I tell them all the time and you think this is going to be so exciting I'm gonNA razzle Dazzle Uber. Really I wanNA talk about whether you're left or right handed. Because I need to know where to put an outlet in your. In your drawer in your bathroom if you have an electric toothbrush or an electric razor. So if you're left handed, we plug in on the left if you're right handed with plug on the right like how mundane is that but like no, it's actually to me it's not mundane. It's like, wow, how amazingly detail oriented are you on the things that actually really matter in your day to day life because yes. If you if people are hiring you, they obviously want a beautiful house, but you want to be comfortable like you live here. This is were someone like you said, takes her bra off like brushes, their teeth. And Shit you know it's like I want to be comfortable in my house and those are the details that you are really paying attention to. That's a made what I care about. It's actually what I care about more and I really do feel like there's a there's a natural understanding. I. Couldn't quite tell you what the process is to get to the pretty part because it it sort of follows all of those details at naturally kind of comes in behind that we craft would you know like a master bedroom may be? Dreamy and soft and peaceful in their high-powered whatever or they're traveling athletes. When they get to be home, they want not a hotel room they wanna be home and you know layers and layers of texture and quiet and blackout drapes, and those were to think so that is right away that's easy to me. So then we have to deal with all of the other stuff which I stay at the mundane, which is how they live which side of the bed do you sleep on? You know is this her side or is his side and you know who goes to the bathroom more than middle of the night gets up with the baby. You know that sort of real that's the real life. That's how I want to design for people is by knowing who they are and then building this really beautiful thing all the way around how they live or how they'd like to live. That's what really gets me going. Excessive you even handle myself right now. So where do you get? So there's that which is just like so awesome because that's that's amazing. Aware. Did you get the design part though because you're designed to me? What draws me so much as I vomited it out in the beginning of this podcast like thirty, seven, thousand things about you. But like your designed to me covers all of the things that you want at least in my mind is like creative artistic it's bright it's edgy, but then it feels so peaceful and timeless in classic in Serene. But yet then it's like bright orange something somewhere but it goes so perfectly or like a hallway of blue textured wallpaper that makes you just feel so awesome. Now like how do you do this? Where does that come from? Well I mean you know to bring the same reasons same bill like let's walk down sort of a quiet like let's be peaceful. Let's be energetic in this space and unlocked. Let's walk down this hallway and sort of take it in in quiet everything down with texture, and then when we walk into the bedroom, we feel peaceful by the time they're like it's much more about the use of space then about the pretty thing that you bought. And put in its why like forever when everybody was like Oh that catalog so pretty and I'll go to pure one by myself candle and then. I Got Pretty House right? Like you're just buying staff but you're not creating the environment or like holding the house like you'd like to live in when when we get to design, you know one of the things that I'm obsessed with I could I will bore you to tears on this topic, but I'm obsessed with space between her typic-. Her car, door in the garage. In the island in the kitchen while they. GotTa take a break I have to pause because you're blowing my mind. We're having conversations that I didn't even know existed right now. I. I didn't know that as a designer. Of course, this is what you would want to think about now that you're saying it like, yes but like. Who knows the think about this? I mean, yes that wrong the car door to the island a woman walks that half how many times a day in what's in? Okay. So you her, what's in your hands Oh, my God, a baby always a baby. Diaper Bag A. Hold of Raga have a bottle I have a snack. A have probably two passes because she's always got two paths. A wet swimsuits weren't swim lessons right now a towel over the other shoulder. A car key somewhere and a purse if I can find it it. Back in a water bottle and maybe a bag to return to target. Yeah. so that's exactly what everybody has in some form or fashion right? Like says it matter if you're a stay at home mom or you have a bunch of kids or you work or whatever. So to me when you get out of your car door Steve Left with all stuff, you're gonNA come back in with all of that stuff. So you get out of your car door and there should be somewhere for you to throw things away that you gathered trash when you're in your car. Of Your. The trash in my pockets are in regular. Corridor. Yeah. They're on put to the car to remember to throw it away later because I don't want to stay in a car you don't have anywhere to put it. Then you in the House and she of her wet bathing suit and her towel, and you have maybe like a really dirty diaper she totally overflowed a diaper and now you have a wet dirty clothes and all that kind of stuff. So when we enter the house, we should have laundry nearby we should. Have a place to hang up the things that will take. Again, we should have a place for you to put your purse charger phone because you know your battery's dying by the time, you get back into the house and you can dispense. You've got the mail you grab that you showed it in your person, you can put the mail. So I the time in my dream by the time, you've made it to the kitchen island you hands free except for the baby home. Amazing. Right. Now, I literally, my mind is like if if if it could explode, it would be exploding. So, if we could design the house like that. So we know how you live. We all we all sort of live like that. Now again, let's be clear. This is luxury construction, right? So I guess that not is not how everybody gets to build. You can't think it though even if you're not building luxury construction, you can think it. Okay. So how can I do that? How can I make that walk for my car door to the kitchen island? How can I get all of those steps taken care of by the time I get there? Yeah. I goal a clean pristine kitchen island. Because everything has been managed by the time you get. There is gorgeous. You Bet your ass, it's gorgeous. But that's sort of secondary. So usually wrong. So you now. So now here's your like you're saying, here's your your walk from your car, the island. So now you create the laundry room gorgeous that you need. This is the function I create probably like the mud room type situation with So you're helping people stay organized also like so we don't lose our. I mean it it's everything and then we can take it all the way like if you. Okay. So let's talk fancy for a moment. Love Soup. is a dirty kitchen. Oh, what am I? made is a dirty kitchen. So there's your kitchen, right. So let's pretend that you're like states fancy. Haters all the time or you host functions all the time in your house and you loved entertaining your beautiful kitchen, right? So behind your kitchen is a dirty kitchen. You've got double kitchen. There's a dishwasher in a saying maybe two dishwashers and a sink there's oven. So you're not sweating in your kitchen while you're like entertaining and trying to not like show people that you're breaking out in a little bit of sweat because the Evans on. And if you have a caterer caterers back there, so you can still enjoy your kitchen while you're entertaining instead of your kitchen being kitchen. When you're entertaining high, you had you not do that. So all the stuff is back there there's refrigerators there's wind, there's a coffeemaker, there's refrigerator drawers you can have creamer for your coffee when you make your coffee back there there's drawers for refrigeration so you can make your smoothies. All the clean kitchen that's the dirty kitchen than what's the clean kitchen. Then you just have your beautiful refrigerator that's organized by the home at it, and you have your beautiful island and that's where your friends drink wine. While you're just putting the finishing touches on your little hors d'oeuvres traded. Sit Out I don't know Oh my God. Bless. Baby. Island in real life. Do you know what is so probably fantastic about your life and tell me if I'm wrong I mean I know you have so much stress in hard work. That is a given a lot of pressure on responsibility. All that, but you get to live in a true fantasy land of if you dream it, you can create it like what does that feel like because I Do sometimes I am so good about believing in the vision and manifesting in the other times I am so set down by the depth and darkness of the world that I can't for a second even like. Get to like Oh my God anything's possible. Sometimes I'm I'm like so extreme but user live in the anything's possible all the time. What does that feel like? It feels. feels fantastic. You can come up with great tyrus wing in the middle of the kids playroom. You put a freak entire swing in the middle of kids playroom check out the Campbell. Right swings at a kitchen in Brentwood. Right, I mean they can dream. You can make right I. Mean it's what it is what when I hear you say that back to me and I don't get to say those things to myself. Right I'm like heads down working getting through and then it's really hard to like turn around and see. Where you've come or what you've accomplished and things like that to hear, you say Ed back to me. Reminds me. Of that I'm really proud of you know where I've gotten with my business and really proud of the faith at the clients you know put in me to to take them and do those things in that. They might open up and say. You know we had a house drawn a little bit but what do you think it should look like like what else do you think we should do that's amazing. Yes they ask that. That's incredible. I mean it's incredible. Okay. So Another thing. Talk to me about what? What is the imagination of Laurie Piranha pay? What is the imagination? Yes. Because everything you create is so imaginative like what is your imagination and like you said earlier when you walk through a house of Armagh. Quoting you perfectly but like it's some, it's an experience like each room has a viable, even the dark low ceilings room and then I what is What is your imagination and then walk me through one of your fantastical houses in what? Each room is supposed what the flow of the house is supposed to feel like Gee, like almost like explain it to me like a song you know. When you? Start with like you get a little intro and then you get the first first and then you get the pre course and you get the core. and. Then you come down on, you go back second verse and then you get the bridge and then you get the course again and then you get. Another little instrumental part of. The bridge and then you end with. A court a double chorus take the next level crescendo out. So what is the house experience like and what is your nationlly? I mean, it's a lot like that. Really it's be it starts for me. The composition starts her me what I say with every single project is talking to my clients whether now we're on zoom or were impersonator. I'm up there or they're down here and like take me to the front door and let's walk in the front door. And it's amazing to me how many people are like Oh, I haven't really done that or I can't picture what that looks like. I'm just looking at a piece of paper I don't understand like I think the way that my brain is wired is I can see it this way. Like when it's laying on a piece of paper, I can lift it up then walk through. Mental. You're. Renting. So yeah. It already there I have my little three D. glasses on in my imagination and I can see what that room will look like. And I'm like it would be really pretty. You know this the ceiling is huge. This dealings GonNa feel huge if we break it up, maybe this room has beams on the ceiling and we have texture on the wall and I think battlefield really nice at the beginning, and then we turn and we might want to transition to like the casual part of the house, which would be like the kitchen back of house dirty kitchen, laundry, mud, drop spot, all of those things that's like our casual space. Now, we have our entertaining space like our living room and dining room, and now our kitchens are sort of part of that entertaining space they're not hidden anymore. And we go to the private areas of the house where the family is. So like for you, that's where I would like to hang photos of Sonny that are like make your heart beat but aren't like the perfect photo that you would hang in a southern proper southern home at the front of the house the one like me the feels that you that speak to you like in your personal space where you're most relaxed with your people back there. That's where we see the Senate. Calm all of those things happen in those spaces playrooms are energetic writing playrooms are Oh. That's so exciting or that look. So tidy to a mother like I could keep that organized. As nerves there's wallpaper and there's color there shocking yellow and there's an interesting thing in their swings hanging where they can't get hurt and they can play inside and and it's not dangerous like it's like I don't like the safe zone run into anything is just all right there over a rug and everybody stays. but that's sort of how it unfolds to me like I do talk a lot about like this is the intimate part of the house. This is the entertaining part. This is the back of house where a lot of the mundane everyday stuff is taken care of and but it should be really beautiful because we spend a lot of our time as real people back in that. The laundry room should be pretty in the mud room should be organized. Penalty should have a place for things because we come in with that target bag and a phone that is charging in our purse, and you know gym bag or whatever you have been you have your hands full. So I, feel like a house sort of unfolds that way and that Tau Four. Happened behind those things that were naturally doing in the house. Carolina. Do.

So be sure to watch the entire series of the umbrella Kademi before pressing play on the podcast. Always start from. The where do you start like when when you have a house? Where do you start? Where's your starting point? Is it different every time or? How do you DART? What Room do you start with I guess what your like Your what your fence posts that you build the farm on on Whatever? I think it's different every time I think something comes to me during a conversation and unlike check okay Dinero. was going to be black do wine walls we're going to do you know sexy lighting we're GonNa have killer art and vintage rug on the floor in it's going to be like entertaining lights low. So I'm like done in the we can move. On. But it's it really is that fast for half to wait for the first room to that come into your head does it almost like flash in like you're talking talking talking to get the lay off and like a room just flashes in the bill that yes? Yes. In into a house like there, we have a project in Boston it's going to be. Nana's. Like when I tell you, it's going to be bananas I mean Story Bananas. All right I just feel like elevated talking to you. In that house though like we were probably four months in when I said to my team, I'm like I have I can't I can't see the girl's rooms yet. Okay. Gavin's yeah but they're not. They're like I. don't even have the the layout really memorized. I haven't walked in to see what it what wall we look at her. Felt what it is or and so I had to like kind of sit down and sit in there mentally and see if I could feel the space and begin to imagine what it might be, but and some of them are blank. What hat road, Lyle did it come early? Oh Yeah. It finally hung how did you get it to come like? How did you force inspiration upon yourself? Right? Well, I mean it starts like for the girl's rooms in Boston it was it was wallpaper like she'd given us these like two sentences each daughter. And she you know kind of a tomboy and she's athletic and outdoorsy, and she loves this and she really doesn't want to be pink and this is what she likes, and then for the younger daughter, it was like just pink parade. All girl all the way that's what she would love, and she really wants a white bed and whatever. So once I sort of like could sit with the girls mentally about what that meant to them, and that could grow a little bit and not just be like a pottery barn catalog. That's great for this season, and then it's dead in, you have to earn it to the ground It kind of came together and worked with my team and my team helps to they helped hold things and get them in front of me and over member you saw this and you really want to use it and over member we saw that light fixture over it right? Right. Okay. So what if we and then it? Kinda. Comes into focus for me but I mean without my team putting those things in front of me. Then I'd be on my own. I'd be back where I started all by myself having to do each of the spaces. So now there's These amazing people who also bring things and put them in front of me to remind me that I saw something that I loved. I have a lot of questions. I hope I can remember all but I'm going to start with the first ones in my mind. I saw. How do you find a team like how do you with your creativity in your vision? That is so unique to you and like you said, you're a number three on instagram yard achiever. I'm sure that you are driven and you have high expectations for your team to be the same way. So how do you find that perfect balance of someone who has the creativity that you're looking for but also the work and the personality 'cause I'm sure they're not a dime a dozen what you're looking for. Very, a very hard find. It is I. So like I in my head, I was just talking about it today with them at offices in my head I'm sort of still that girl by myself and I've had to learn to trust to let people touch this thing that I've worked. So hard to build something uniquely you like it's view it's not like you learn I mean, yes you had training and I'm sure you've got all sorts of great knowledge but like this is you you and direct client conversations are really me to the client and so we can't like when I've tried to figure out scaling how do. I scale how to a skill this business in grow and I don't ever want to grow to the point where I don't have that intimate relationship with the client where I can see what they want I hear what they want I'm working directly with them. I don't WanNA bunch of designers who are working on a bunch of projects that I don't know anything about that. I hope that they pick things that I like and I hope that they execute it well, and I hope that they communicate well and I hope like I wouldn't I can't. I can't grow that way that's not where I'm going. Has To evil who support me and handled tasks and in managed calendar in manage timelines and manage timing of you know. Okay. So the last item we did this today with Megan Griffin. She. So Kate is my desire about anger. She runs owns and runs skin farm. I just got talks today for like the first. Time since I've the pregnant and we were talking about you Lori. Amazing. Yard. 'cause you designed against done all the skin farm, he doesn't make his houses and it's be useful. Thank you. I can't wait to install Megan's house. She's dying for it and houses beautiful empty. So she doesn't even really need me but it'll be nice to have new furniture. But so today that was what my design manager Kate was doing. She was like, okay. The last piece arrives on this date and then we can get in there and we can install. We'll need shared Augusta drapery. We know that we can do wallpaper and then she's doing calendar while she's doing all of that. I'm doing something else. Instead of me doing that and plus me doing and then me join not. So she's managing that whole thing she's communicating with Megan Megan these are the dates that were looking at does that work and then she scored meeting the people in the delivery in the furniture in the whatever. So I can do the things that I do so awesome because that takes so much time and energy to do, and I'm not good at it. Yeah. That's not my strength. You don't want me doing that. You don't want me driving that train sister you don't want me doing it. You want Kate doing it like I'll say it to people too I'm like, ask you gotta ask Kate cates and charge like let her handled that because she's excellent at it but it took me a while to to trust her I hired her as an assistant and I shared her because I didn't think like I didn't think I could pay myself much less pay another human. Yes like I didn't know what I guess at. That time I can't promise you twenty hours on three months later I'm like, okay I need you full-time. All the time but I mean I loved her I. Loved Her right away. I really feel like she she She believes in the business and and believes in what we're doing and cares for it. which is so important to me that she cares for this business and I think she feels a part of it. Instead of just she works for me I think she feels like she is a part of what we're accomplishing which is a big deal. That's a big deal one also, like you said, you completely gave her her role like what she does you want her to do it. You don't want to do it. So she is apart because you've trusted her with her role hundred percent, I can't do her job. She can do her job. She doesn't know much better than I do and I love that she you know she has great design sense she pours into our design, but she's a designer. which she has that doubt that aspect of it on lock like this needs attention. We haven't done this. Have you called that person? This needs to happen next she's got that naturally. And I don't. So that's an amazing team member to have junior designer caroline who graduated from Alabama a year and a half ago. And I got her right out of school and she has incredible taste and she gets along with everybody and she's cheerful and she works hard and she takes direction really well So she advances things for me like a bike. Here's the top line of what I wanted to look like this is where the direction is and then she starts to fill in all of those blanks and puts she'll put the board together. So when you find a kate and a Carolina, what do you do do you like freak out in your head like because I'm sure it's a little bit of a process like when you find them like because I'm again you get get what you need because they incredible how? A. What do you? How do you? How do you? Know what I'm trying to save is that's like the holy grail when you find someone that you can rely on. It is in I like will not get too far into it because it is so upsetting but I had the wrong employees want Who was who did not have my best interest at heart and we are like so real and when I fail, it's like right there in front of everybody and when I get an email, the her feelings the first thing I do is read it out loud or screen shot and send it to my team or you know that's so important to me to to share happy and sad and and win loss, and all of those things and this person was with us for a little for short time but. was did wishes not cheering me on I does that look like just like I actually like being a negative energy. Being a negative energy to. About our tongue of have how? Yeah Representative Team Yeah. And not representing like I work in a community of women who owned their small businesses also Redo home and design is where my offices and So all these amazing women who are running their own businesses are we santeuil shoulder like wins loss wins and losses and in good and bad and I didn't make enough money here and I lost it and here's what I think happened, and then I'm like Oh that happened to me and here's what I. Did. You know we have this community and to have somebody. In our happy home. who was not rooting for us and was not caring for that information and was not caring for our client base in a respectful way. Best tough. That was it was very brief but it took me a long time to believe that someone might be able to come into our home. And and and be on our team and and be part of us. So, it took me. Well, we'll, and the thing is that I feel like a lot maybe someone who's who hasn't taken a huge risk like you're putting your entire name, your life, your dream, your other people's money on the line every single day like when you go into work, you have so much on the line you have to step up and play ball also had for that. You have to. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to be like rainbows and butterflies all the time because shit. Sometimes hitting the fan things are going great. You have thirty seven balls in the air like. How can you if you can't be able to be transparent in all of that with your team? Then you have a productive relationship no I. mean it was. It was awful. It was awful awful awful and I ended up immediately. Someone told me afterward they. They said higher slowly and fire fast. ooh That's good advice. That's that's great. Advice. So as soon as I knew I was like, okay. Is this working for you? I? Don't think it's working for me and she's like I don't think he's wearing like okay great. Lot back by yeah changing. Yeah CNN. So so that was sort of a that was a tough thing in growth for me is finding the people who are meant to be with me, and I, say, this is about my clients I really really really really mean it the trust I told you about earlier and requiring trust and making that my word for this year is. The clients and the employees. Who are were meant for me they come to me they sit sit freely in my hands and I don't. Don't squeeze them. I don't chase them. I don't convinced them. I. Don't talk them into it. I don't sell them. If if if I'm your designer. This is how much the money is. This is my process. This is how this works and you are. Welcome. To to this, if this feels like what you were meant to be doing. If this does not feel like what you're meant to be doing then. Blessed and release it right. So why? Why Chris? Spirituality. Meditation, is that what? What are you tuning into when you have that? Because that is so awesome I'd like your like you should hang on Goldie Hawn and Kate. Hudson and that's where I WANNA hang out here like just like let up too low I love that what is that like? How do you know how to trust that so much? Well, I mean that's that's what I'm learning I'm working progress, right? You're wrong for a long time. I would I thought? Oh. That's a-list I want that. Out Yet and all the signs are there and I'm like it's fine. I'll be I'll figure it out I'm tough. I. Can do it. Don't worry about it. This isn't going well though they haven't paid their bill that's all you know and kind of, and I was just squeezing it and chasing it and. Holding on so hard to things that were never meant to be mine. That I was wasting energy on these negative experiences in wondering why a client relationship is going bad or wondering why a vendor relationship was when It it just wasn't mine. Oh Oh. Yes. Yes. So. My confidence that takes confidence in yourself confidence in the process to be able to do that because a lot of people are gonNA have to have to have it. But like when you go to the place where you're like I, don't want it if it's not meant for me, that is like you are a confident Ma motherfucker. It took a minute. It took until this year. Like I was on paper I, was successful last year. It took until this year for me to say that I, that very first conversation. So somebody sends me an inquiry and they're like, Hey, we live in Toronto or we live in Charlotte, or we live wherever we live and we would like for you to build house and can you tell me about the assess so then I call them or email them and I just say everything I have to say the scariest ugliest gnarliest parts say all of them. Wow. How'd you have you know how to do that? Well, because I would be like, oh, I mean it's not that expensive it'll be fine. Oh, that budget. Yeah. Of course we can we. Will make it work so you just lay it out there. So now I'm like. This is how much I am. which you know is new to me to progress my career to get to a place where that's what that number is and and I feel I feel good about it. Yeah. I. Feel like it's it's earned would value for. It's an investment in the house I feel like that investment they make in me off so much more in. The final version of the house that it's actually a really good value. Yeah in my. And then this is how much the furniture takes for us to get all the way where you think we're going. Like what you see on the parade instagram voters Here's how we got there. So that's the money. And I'm very collaborative in the beginning and then we sort of develop a plan and I'm like this is the direction we'd like to go, and once we get your approval, we sort of take it from there. So control free people don't let my process. Okay. Because they're like is does that let me see? Does that off-white madge this off way which one is more often I'm like, wow, you are fucking lost and you're you're Nice I. This is you're not getting my picture you're not understanding. No, no, and if that's important to them that I'm not your girl the. Totally a designer for that. Yeah who you are free. Variance like your. This is your flow based on their desires. That's correct. So if that process sounds good to you it like when my clients who are meant to be my when my clients listened to that they're like. That use the thereto just say you know one day I'm going to be one of your clients. Are, truly love. I would love that I mean, that's my dream putting it on my vision board. Good. Yeah and the people who don't want that. They're like that's really interesting. Thank you so much and we get off the phone and then they don't hire me and I'm like waiting to be dodged a miserable year and a half how great that you can be at that place? Well and I still want to stay hungry like I. Don't WanNa hear. I. Don't WanNa anybody WHO's young in business starting out to be like, oh, she said flippant about letting business go will some of us just need to take the business while I was there says it's like I remember getting you know two hours instead of just one hour paid for and I would like call my husband like Bam. wrote me check not one hour To. Like I'm taking everybody on dinner. This is amazing. From but I really for my business in where I am and what's going on these amazing clients who come to me mostly through instagram If that relationship is there, the trust is there and they believe that that's the experience that they want then. It so on, it's O- on if not, there are incredibly talented people out there who will work in whatever like they can find their person dating hertzen. It's like dating. You can't everyone's a match note and you get married for a long time. I worked with some people for three years in a row like our project is a three year project. If I'm not your designer. What a miserable experience like waiting to divorced? Yet orbital. So it has to be good. So so faith trust all about that every that's all the energy putting into my business. That's only. So you talked about budgets because I feel like everything house. There's always this budget that you start within the budget never say the budget like a hat is that how is that? Will I think that also? That's the first. That's conversation number one. That's effort. Because I actually know what the budget is because I've done. Right. So it's not the first time I filled a house though again, my clients are in their twenties and thirties, they're not bringing a house full of furniture to this new house. They don't have furniture there in a townhouse and or their starter house, and then all the sudden things changed and they got a good contractor they. Had A great album or they whatever and so life is different. So I feel like having the ability to tell them is what they're asking for. How much does this cost and you can really sell this? and. I'm like, okay. Well, I'll tell you that rooms like this and the rooms that you're seeing the reason you call me these are between. This horrifying number. In this horrifying number. And if they don't want to do that. Yeah. Okay Wow. Okay. that. Totally. Makes that doesn't work I totally understand. But if you want me to do this, then I can tell you that we have found success in this range So I'm not really blowing budgets because I'm the one who has done this before I'm I'm the one that says in order to get to there, we have this many square feet this many rooms we argue doing all the guestrooms we're doing this we're doing the pool we're doing the we're doing all of it. Then this is about what is. And you you have a lot to back it up on like you know like I know where this is going to be pretty much it. Yup, and then they can go away and they can look at it and some of them on the phone that's about what I figured What I thought, it might be and others are like cut more than I thought let me think about it but you do want to know. Yeah. Like I'm not sure why we would start a relationship without me sharing with them what that would look like in order for me to be successful for them they're me -cause they liked what I did if I wasn't forthright about how I got there than they would think I'd can get them they're. In a different way like. Who are though I love her front your because at the end of the day late when you have an honest relationship, then that makes money not dislike. This thing. That can be a wedge maybe so much because I feel like if you're not transparent about money because if you WANNA try to you're trying to make someone happy you're trying to like tiptoe around because you don't want to Piss them off but then here comes a CIA the big build in the experiences like Wouldn't you rather know from the beginning like this is what it costs. Take early bit. For sure and I have done it the other way done at the wrong way. So many times like so afraid, it's hard. It's the worst and that's why I lead with it. We're talking about who were blue in the face. You're going to be comfortable talking about money to me. You never have to worry like why don't want to say that because Lori will think we don't have no. We're going to go ahead and we're going to be a team. We all have the same goal in mind we all understand where the boundaries are. And let's play within those boundaries. But let's understand what they are in those at home. You WanNa play and that's totally okay. There you know worked at different budgets, different phases of my career You know this is the this is the face that amend now. And so should be up front about that and not try to downplay it or me so afraid to send an invoice or is them with a bill? Yes. That's the worst to me. I'm like Oh. No, here's bill. Let me tell you in the beginning before you ever even hire me. Here's the bill. Yeah. Were good we good. Okay and then here's how I send it. s maker life like this. Take off such levels of stress I would like to talk to ten year ago me. And tell ten year ago me to quit telling them that you can do it for less and quit telling them that you will only need ten hours. You can do the whole house and quit telling. Minimizing the puppy Lama. Thing everything and to make this deal and get it to work and all of that because it ends badly. Can We? We transfer that to life. quit minimising quit trying to make twenty hour day into our day quit trying to sell ourselves shore which. People like doesn't that just apply to life in general you're absolutely right and I could probably take a lesson from my business in apply to my personal life like the business product Kinda have figured out. I could probably go find that to per star a little more often than I do. Confederation at Work Yeah. You've nailed it at work you've got confidant and you're probably and who you are and what you need to show up as at work with. Like a human person, it's hard because. We have such different roller. That were with you know. Sure. Absolutely, and I think if I can apply more. ME. To. Get her out there. I can get real. So a dog Barking Bathing Ryan. Need. Fine. Okay good So so yeah, think that's that's kind of where the magic is. Right like. Isn't that what we're figuring out over time all of us is the more you know that. Dr Seuss. I'm a big Fan of Dr Seuss. And it's always been what I've told my daughter and my son, which is. today you are you that is true or true. There is no one alive. Who is you're than you Like what kind of magic is that? Like if solely Amazon art he is just you. Yeah do like I got. Why is it so hard because I feel like I'm in A. New Awakening becoming a new mom, and obviously you're a mom and a wife and so and you're how older children are you have kids? I have an eighteen year old daughter and my son is about to be sixteen. Okay. You have gone through some major parenting milestones and you have been transformed over and over and over again by parenting. But like I feel like I'm in the big middle of just like coming into this whole new self because like when Sonny was born everyone's like. Dies new and it is so true. It's like I am having to learn how to disliked trust office get lost in all these feelings and all these different ways to do it, and like sometimes even know higher need to like do anything, and then this is what you're saying if I can just be. Then I'm right but sometimes, I don't even know how to me. Okay. So it's so funny that you're saying that because I'M GONNA look this up for you. Do you follow Glennon oil I love Glenn Doyle yes. What she said today no, she said. I mean, it's a free profound every time. This life is mine alone. So I've stopped asking people for directions to places I've never been. Earth knows what you need to do. Next good news you know you already know. Wow. Wow. How can you read that all over again? This life is mine alone. So I've stopped asking people for directions to places they've never been. So they've never lived your life to stop asking other people how to live your life. They've never lived it. They're busy working on their own, right we're all just. Trying to figure this out. Bad News nobody on earth knows what you need to do. Next good news you know. You already know. And that's good. How do you get to that place? Like how do you get there when you're having a day and you've lost in yourself in you are maybe I don't know what your character defects or whatever are because we have our net first ourselves and we'll have ourselves that were like not your best version I know I have mine. So when you are not firing off at all cylinders and you're like in a day, how do you reset to get back to that quote? Boy I mean probably a lot of different ways. The first one I probably do is say it out loud. Notice that are you so into now that you can feel it when you're spiraling or not in your best own well like I said today. So my husband and I are talking about building a house for ourselves, which is really exciting. That's fun yet and We're going through all the money stuff right there in any money stuff the big money stuff the small money stuff like how does this come together? How are? We in a place where we're able to do this, and then you're like, oh, are we able to do this and you know scared fear all those things and he kinda was sort of negative about it on text and I replied him then he made a joke I said, let's talk about it tonight. I texted I said let's talk about it tonight and he said Ooh that sounds fun and he's sent a little heart. Like flirting with me, right. Judge Spark live all these years which was cute. I wrote back can't you tell that I'm sad. Like I don't really want you to flirt with me right now like I'm so glad about this like I I need you to hear me. I'm not feeling great about this. Appreciate that. The little snuggle, the attacks that he was tempting. Thanks for canoodling but. But. Like I don't really want to cuddle right now like I'm sad. Tell it that. I need to like. PUT It out there. Were all come home and say I you know. Okay. So you're a performer, right you did the amazing race. So you spent this entire your time on Post things in your own while you're there. So when I'm with clients or I'm presenting or unburned that. I'll come home early been text family and say I was on all day. I, think I'm out of the like Iran out of all the words. Words left I asked he and I go and I do and I'm on an all performed and I will do everything that I need to do, and then at some point I like need to power down. Service. And then they're like, okay mommy upfront with it and so it doesn't catch every. They don't think you're. Well I think finding the words like my first thing that I need to do is identify. It. And communicate to them that. You know I don't think I'm happy jokey Mimi Funny Mommy today and I don't think i. feel it coming home and entertaining and I don't like like I. Think I'm out of fuel. I think. Maybe we'll have some dinner. UPS early and. Get in bed and maybe twitter in our instagram, and maybe I'll watch ridiculous show on TV or something. But like I kind of get out of you know. Amal. Out. About any recharged but I think verb be able to verbalize it is is something that I'm developing but I find that it's very effective with my people. So has your family responded well to you being upfront about your feelings? Very. Well, how has it? affected. My daughter will. Or my son will come upstairs and say. Hey I her that you're tired or you had a really long day clients day You for working so hard for our family. Oh. I think he. Hears me say that to my husband? Husband say that to me that that's an affirmation that we both need. Thank you for working so hard like see you working hard and are not going to ask you to do something else out right now like Lori finished. But the affirmation, the appreciation. I mean, sometimes that's. Right So have. Did this point how'd you get to this point and I totally interrupt you finish your thought and then I'll? Play. For you as a state home mommy like sometimes all need is for someone affirmed that it's hard. Yeah. Totally. The only God. Thank you like because everybody else on Instagram seems to be just crushing the gallon everybody's cut up perfect thing and they remembered the extra. One the new to being like everybody's doing a better than you are right. In the comparison and all of Just nice to be seen in the moment maybe it not your best on you might sell. World in win. Yourself, not doing great. That's nice to. Totally. That is pretty amazing. What is it a brand new car like do you have? Rescue. Rescue rescued her abbey in dance. My ass abby is the dog says roses from her. So Abby told Abby Abby and Fan I told they were we were working working together when my fourteen year old Dr Type. And they were awesome. And I would be an. For everyone listening news called, I should probably go. Ahead. Isn't it so Soga. I hope. She's. Spot Army. But did she want to come join the PODCAST got lioness you? Hold on one second, he wants to hang out. Right, here she comes. She's like listen I WanNa make my debut also. Okay like I need to be on She just wants to sit in here and have gotten attention. She's a rescue. So Akeso Dan Abbey. So they were with me when our Jeanne put our June to sleep and they are so sweet sweet text from both of them and they said when you're ready, let us know and we'll help you find another. And of those like. A couple a month into the quarantine. We're like, oh, we need it. We should get a quarantine cubby, right? Yeah. So I texted him. And I was like, okay. I think we're any and sent us to a couple of places and wags and Walks Nashville was one of the places. And we went and met turning Sarah. When we adopted her and we changed her name to Nilly and we brought her home and she's been she's been awesome. So I'm grateful that they like put us in touch with something like that. You know I loved the idea of adopting and I loved the idea of giving a pep home who doesn't an in my husband's Indian I'm totally like mixed mutt white girl. So our kids are months anyway. So we may as well have much. Like. I don't get. I. Don't Eat Pyramid Ping Right. So the best God. I love that little millie. Okay. So I would talk to journalists person I wanNA quickly talk to you about what has parenting what have you learned from being a mother especially going through all of these phases and you're in the teenage phase like what is what is transformed and you being a mother? Oh Gosh. What hasn't really. What has not transformed I think. I don't WanNa. Make this too much of a theme, and this is like the very special trust episode. PODCAST I love but I but I think trusting myself more and like teaching them how important that is for themselves to understand who they are into grow into it and not be so certain of who you are until your certain out. Oh, sure. That's great. You know like Oh here like my son'll say, Oh, well, I'm shy I'm like. I'm you know I? Don't I, don't know that you are. Are you sure you're shy like reassure? That's like. A hard fact. Said now we're done in your shy I was like because I don't think that that's true. Like don't you Enjoy doing this or don't you like when this happens he's again like. Maybe we were. Maybe we're not all the way cooked yet. Maybe. Maybe here like still in your little muffin tin and you're just still a little bit mushy in you're still like muffin batter and you're not a muffin yet. Maybe you don't know what you are. Why are you so sure that you're this or you're that? An. And I. think that the me trusting in them trusting is allowing them to kind of figure it out Laurie. Why are you reading? Where are you going to your spiritual services wearing gathering his insight because everything you're saying I can you infuse this into my brain because I, relate to it I accepted it clicks so much and I'm like, how did you know how to say that and think of? That I need your guidance where do you get those? You don't you need you need Glennon and shit her saying like you already know you already know like your Sonny's mother like your her person she's your person and like you and Michael like whoever it is that you are will infuse into her. But if you just hold her loosely and let her become who she is like how amazing is that? Right, but you have no words say like you're not using her your muscles and you're still mushy we're not necessarily. I'm like, how do I do the so perfect. But it's true like I really. Do I think it's already like within US I? Think we just get rid with self doubt and we listened to the outside and we don't trust ourselves well. Though but you have the actual terminology to speak the words like how do you know how to say these things? So provide no muffin thing as. To you right now it's Brady ethic to me. On my union, a book called Michigan, the metal, but you're beautiful. Be An amazing muffin. Sean of batter. How how do I come up with such eloquent things, I? Don't know it hits me right got. Right it's just amazing. I know. So you're a really wise like telling you. I'm sorry I. You might have already done this and I'm sorry you have an distant but have you written a book? No No. Oh okay. Well, you need to write a book and you need to do it like your lives losses mixed with your design philosophies and how they meld together because I think it would be really awesome l.. It's all kinds me and you could start the book like how you the vibes of the room like thinking through each room and how it's all like this picture and this painting an office together sort of like your life philosophy is the holding loosely waiting for inspiration using the POPs. In the right places, I'm telling you this would be a best seller. So in. Do it. while. Okay. So truth like I will not be a woman who liked dims my own light I will tell you that I would love to someday have a book. Yeah I am ready okay I think my muffin batter is not quite Ready. You full month. One I, think I want to a bigger body of work share. I. Think I think I have a title. I think I would like the title to be beautiful as easy and and what I mean by that is that you can look at a million beautiful things. But if they don't function and they don't, they don't make sense for you than the beauty is is it's not easy if it doesn't cause your life to fill easy Venice not really beautiful all that it doesn't matter if it's pretty. You can't sit on the Sofa and you can put your feet up on the Ottoman and if you can't relax in your bed and if you can't walk on the rug and if you can't like who wants to live like that. Wow, that sounds horrible to me. So. Yeah. Somebody can put a bunch of beautiful things in the rim, but I would like to think that I'm building and designing these homes for people that will live for such a long time, which is really exciting that my work will live for so so long but. I I'd like to think that it's living really beautifully. That it's not just a pretty face. That lives beautifully for these families who trusted me to design it for them. Really. Fast, you have to tell me where do you go to get your spiritual for inspiration? Where do you go to get all of this like? This wisdom gather this because I need to go to this well. I Dude names on instagram count. Yeah. It's all a part of your bigger picture. I'm telling you like I am here for it all. Oh, I don't know. I don't I don't have religion. Don't. Talk. To hire being. I mean, that's for sure like I. Think I. Think having an understanding in living a well examined life and all of those things are in fact important to me and in. Raising. My kids in the south without religion is kind of a big thing. And in having them grow up without bad in a in a place where it's very common y'all go to church and then it's like. Right his. Rope in the south everybody goes to church, and so those are sort of things that we've had to talk about a lot of in our house that you know what what we're doing is based in kindness, and what we're living is is to for you to go into this world and and not do harm to others. Bring bad feelings to others your to to live and kindness for yourself and love and kindness for others, and so we eat maybe lean a little more on philosophy I love my mom's. Professor I love loss I grew up with a very philosophical house maybe why I relate to you and receive what you're saying because I'm like it's just the point like it's not who cares about all the titles and I'm not bashing religion everybody has their outlet in like everyone under fine. The higher power however they want. But certainly, I want apple applicable way to really live a life that is bills bigger than me that feels i. Feel like I can walk in these principles and actually lived arrive richer and really like is ours religion goes like we have friends of all different faiths and almost all of you know. The vast majority of our friends are believers and that I would I would say like. Definitely don't want to be negative, but I would say that that my children I can say with certainty have never been judgmental of what another family does or would another family believes that that has not been reciprocated So has been something that they have had to learn and understand that that not everybody is okay. With what you do don't believe. A lot of people in this goes for life in general need things to be very. titled. You know like we have to have everything. So wrapped up in a bow that we can like understand like to me the higher power, the bigger florus like how could you ever wrapped up in a bow? You know Right in really like if we're good family and we're good people and live with. And treat others with kindness and things like that like not our religion religionists don't be an asshole how yes and we all kids are old enough that they now know that that is our religion. An asshole don't be an asshole for what someone believes in. Surely don't be an asshole for with someone doesn't. Just general let's just agree to not be assholes K.. Laurie. I'm obsessed. Okay. So I leave every podcast with leave your light which you have so much light and I'm telling you this has been one of my favorite episodes i. Just had so much fun talking to you and hearing your story. Tell me what do you want people to know? Do I want people to know often even change it now I'm GonNa, get more specific my pipe. Let's get real so. Let's say, let's get real. Why do you want to get real with people? Oh. I want to get real I mean I could do. Okay. So I'm only answering to as I'll answer it for the professional me. Okay. which is that my job is not about pretty expensive new things. That has almost nothing to do with my job. Where most people might think that? That's everything that my job is I find that to be. Inconsequential what I do is I design and build beautiful homes for families and people to live in. So that's what I would say that's what I'd like people to know professionally who a and I think I think personally. I think it would probably fall back into the category of what we've talked about quite a bit that kind of was woven through everything that we talked about that but I am learning to trust myself I'm learning to trust the people that I surround myself with. And I find that the more that I'm able to do that the more sits. The more that sitting in my hands is what is meant to be? There's there's less of what's wrong and more of what's right. Aw because I'm not chasing it and squeezing it and trying to make something happe
