However, there are still residents that we serve and businesses that we serve in Colorado County that will still need to be shut off for public safety. Mark. Thanks. And I want to go to the nest, too. Because one of the questions that Mike asked if there was some of these customers did get a notification. Is that a cancellation notice Then that happens. How does the notification process work? If you've been notified that you could be part of an events and then the scope changes due to weather or other other factors? Yeah, thanks, Lindsay and Mike. Thanks for the question, so we start out, sending a watch notification at two days out. Again one day out, And then just before the shut power shut off. We will switch to a warning if at that time the scope changes, which is what Mark has shared with us. Those customers that previously received a watch notification that had been confirmed to not be impacted by the imminent Shut off. They do receive a cancellation. We heard feedback from our customers last year that they really wanted to know if they were going to lose power right police So And so we adjusted to make sure that we are sending those cancellations with the proper amount of time for customers to be able to.

We want to get to the reporters on the line, and I want to remind the reporters, please hit Star one to get into the queue to ask a question, and we'd like you to go ahead and ask two questions if you have them off the top, But we're going to start with actually a former colleague of my mic Lori or youwant from K. C. R. A We have money. Mike, if you're still on, please dial Star one to get into the queue. And then I want to see if Lorraine Doctor is on from action news Now do we have the rain? Okay, let's go back and see if we have my confirmed Sierra. Reporters need to get Star one to get you to take you to ask a question. And while we wait for the reporters, we had Mike Mike Yep. On here, Okay. Thanks, Lindsay. Just one quick question. I was up in El Dorado County. Today, there was an expected anticipated PF PF for Eldorado County. It didn't happen while we were there we had the lights were on the power was on some of the residents that were telling us that they receive notifications from PG and E via text and e mail that Uh, that there would not be a PS PS for tonight, and I was just calling to confirm that information. Let me go out to Mark and Vanessa on the notifications. Mark. Does this have something to do with the change in scope? Did we have customers in Eldorado County who were initially in scope and then we're taking out also Mark, I think you might be on you. They're in here in your okay. Good. That's exactly what it is, Lindsay. So thank you for providing that first cut like good questions. So Eldorado County is still in scope. There still customers that we serve in Eldorado County that will be experiencing public safety power shut off about this evening. However, the original number of customers that we felt needed to be shut off for public safety has been reduced, and that's really driven by the weather. And you know, just to go into a little bit of detail about that. It's all about geographic scope. It's all about a very specific, very granular model that shows exactly where the drive fuels We're going to be in exactly where the high winds are going to be. And when we get all those two things intersect. That's problematic is a relates Teo, you know, fire safety and so we have some thresholds and we look to try to make that footprint is smaller as we can. I will say that Eldorado County over the overnight with the upgraded forecast models that we had come in, indicated an opportunity to reduce the scope of the event.

CDC walks back guidance on aerosol spread of coronavirus
"Friday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention briefly became the first major health organization in the world to say the Corona virus might be spreading frequently through the air over the weekend, the CDC website said that code 19 spreads commonly through particles expelled when people talk or cough or breathe. And that these particles may travel farther than 6 ft. Then today, the CDC dropped that guidance from its website. We're here to talk about aerosols and confusion at the CDC is NPR's pink long Hey, they're paying Hi. I'm Elise. So more please on what the CDC posted and then deleted. Yeah, Absolutely. So on Friday, CDC website was changed to say that parasol spread might be one of the most common ways coronavirus suspending And remember, for a long time. Now, the public has been hearing that the Corona virus mostly spreads through droplets, like when somebody sneezes are costs on you or through touching contaminated surfaces that has been the CDC is position. But the idea that the virus could in certain settings be spreading through the air is something that researchers have been considering for many months now, so super spending events where A lot of people are getting infected at once seemed to be happening and crowded, mostly indoor settings, and researchers say that that's probably because people across the room are breathing in clouds of the air slides. Virus particles wafting through City's website now says that the aerosol guidance was posted an error and they're still working on figuring out what to say about airborne transmission. Still figuring out what to say and do may possibly there because what is there to figure out? I'm remembering back in July, The World Health Organization, for example, acknowledged that airborne spread in some capacity was possible. Absolutely. And they said that that was possible. You know, in some settings on DH, there still are questions about how long the virus lingers in the air. How far it travels through a room how much you need to breathe and to get infected and also very critically. How frequently expensive sway you know, through the air to people more than 6 ft. Away. And like you said, you know, C C and the World Health Organization have for a while now been saying like, Hey, it is not a good idea to Packer room with people who aren't wearing masks. But they have stopped short of saying that the virus is commonly airborne. Lindsay Mar, who's an aerosols researcher at Virginia Tech. She and some colleagues have been pushing for health agencies to recognize that the virus spreads through the air. Those in public health have thought that if they say a virus is airborne, it's going to cause panic in the pen. It could be worse than the disease itself. She says that past researchers haven't spent a lot of time studying how aerosols spread disease, so it's kind of unknown and a little bit mysterious, and she also says that labeling the Corona virus as officially airborne. Might require hospitals to take more precautions and they're currently taking but and not acknowledging airborne sped. She says that public health agencies aren't providing information that might really help stop the virus. So to make this practical, what does this mean for May for you when we're out in public? Yeah, well on a personal level, the recommendations people have been getting for months. Still apply. People should avoid crowded indoor situations. They should wear masks to cover their noses and mouths. The big difference, Smart says, is to make sure that there's good ventilation in all of our public buildings, and this could be as simple as opening doors and windows. It can be adjusting dampers and H vac system so that you bring in more outdoor air. A lot of schools and restaurants in office buildings have been thinking about ways to improve airflow. But when the public health guidance doesn't specifically address airborne transmission, it leaves local health authorities on their own making judgment calls and just briefly worth noting Ping This is not the only guidance the CDC has walked back recently. No, it is not on Latin Last Friday, they reverse some controversial testing guidance they posted on August around whether people without symptoms should ever be tested. The answer is, yes. We've also seen reports of political operatives China and start themselves into CDC science papers trying to spend public health messages to make the president's pandemic response look better. While CDC says those aerosols guidance was a draft that was posted by mistake. It's yet another very public and visible reversal, which doesn't help the agency established the public trust that's really needed right now.

Oscars Best Picture Contenders Required to Meet Diversity Standards
"Since we're gonna talk about since we're going to talk about movies, this movie debuted 40 years ago. I don't not sure never won any Oscars. We can talk about a different kind of odds. And that is the odds that will be in your favor when you exhibit Perhaps the greatest comedy motion picture of all time. This is going to make it look like Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is gonna be the kind of thing that your Children because they did. I could look up to you now. I never could before. I mean, we made a lot of cheap movies for you guys that made a lot of money. But now we have spent a little more than we're supposed to. Columbia Pictures has spared no expense to make this fine science fiction comedy So they're talking about is that's Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray talking about ghost workers that they put that out to theaters to convince them to show the movie it was. It was something they set out to particularly independent theaters saying, Hey, this is Ah, a little something you might want to consider it your little Arthouse cinema. Now you had one guy was one of the Ghostbusters was a black guy. So there okay. Winston was black. And and then one day I was Jewish. I believe Well, Rick Moranis was in the movies, but I don't think I guess later on. He was kind of an ancillary ghostbuster, the Reynolds Jewish Council's a minority. For some reason. Reason this is important is and I'm reading for The Times. New Oscar standards require best picture contenders must be inclusive to compete if you wanna win. The Oscar for best picture, and I Do You have tohave you meet need to meet certain quotas to do it, Which is the way all great art is made. Certainly we all know Novels, songs movies television shows on the best artist made with quotas. So they came up with this a couple of months ago. This is AH attempt to be more divers to be eligible for best picture of film must meet at least two standards on across four categories of diversity on screen representation. Themes and narratives. So the theme of the movie has to be inclusive of a variety of groups. And it's under representative groups, including women, People of color LGBTQ, plus people and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. You have to touch on at least some of those not only in the cast and they're talking about the main cast. Um I'll read from what it says in The New York Times those standards record, one of the least one of the lead actors were significant supporting actors is from unrepresented, underrepresented racial or ethnic group. One of the lead actors are significant supporting actor. So in that group of people that the movie is all about, you can't have if it's World War, one movie a bunch of white guys, No. No. You gotta have. I don't know, eh? A black guy funded through the trench er. At least Marriott cheap and at least 30 books. They've sent a mariachi band with clearly Mexican people to entertain the troops. Shut them up, or we're going to be bombed by the Germans. Then the mariachis district and you never see them again. Ugo. There's your Oscar bait. Joe Getty Hollywood Quota consultant from No problem I got this. You gotta touch in coming of age story sitting in Norwegian filming Fishing Village, a 16 year old boy and girl and love trying to confront their Nazi past. Let's see. Let's have the Globetrotters come to town and play an exhibition game And on one of the dates they go See the Globetrotters check. $100,000 at least 30% of all actors in secondary in minor roles air from certain underrepresented groups and the main Jenny called the Globetrotters again, and the main storyline, theme or narrative of the movie has to be centred on an under representative group to qualify for a best picture Oscar nomination, And they went through the list of a bunch of movies that might not have made it that have one. You know lots of Oscars, including 1917, the World War. In film or the Irishman that came out last year and was a piece of crap, But in very was a great movie. It was bad, but it was long. I just I just Go and find this. Absolutely amazing. Yeah, on this is from liberals. People who think art is important people who send their kids to expensive colleges to get our degrees. They want to have constraints on art. The Liberals do? Yeah. Yeah, quotas. Good luck with that. My loathing of Hollywood. Well, it could get a little more intense as it turns out, but just If if if it didn't Indicate what James Lindsay has been talking about that this is coming on hard in society as a whole. I could just roll my eyes and move on said Good, Eat yourselves. You're cannibalizing yourselves, And I think it's hilarious. But it does mean that that sort of racialist thinking where everything is broken down to your identity group. You could only get a job if you're this or you can only be fired. If you're not that, or You know, you can only move into a neighborhood. We have quotas and neighborhoods quotas that everything that's dangerous. Is there any chance that any of the older liberals because always talking about the liberals over 50 seem to have a different view of these things? Like a Rob Reiner makes a movie with like what you're talking about here, man. Just those Like, really stick his thumb in the eye of the O R. You got something, you know, three hour long Goodfellow State movie, and then then you turns out Henry Hill's wife, at the end of it says Not only am I leaving you but I'm a lesbian check. We're down here getting a Hollywood quota consultant further preceding three hours. She's been a lesbian. You just didn't know that was your biases. There you go
Interview with John David Washington
"John David Washington who impressed the hell Outta me for his portrayal in Black Klansman is a protagonist Christopher. Nolan's tenant. Areas on that fame direct. I think because this is in a traditional spy thriller film either I think falls in line with what he's what he does with his brand is which is innovation I think he wants the character in the audience to be one in the same in that they want what did they character? The protagonist experiencing I believe he wants to the artist to experience. You know he wants to one relationship. So you know even if it's on a subconscious level, I, think not knowing his name not necessarily knowing a lot about information about his background limits Lindsay audio lent itself to the audience experiencing exactly what he is at the same time. I'm a huge fan massive fan And I think his ability obviously storytelling ability at the core of it just is is top notch. Just knows how to tell a story and how he's He's tells it nearly He's just brakes, all kinds of traditions, and whereas filmmaking I think he has this ability to make you care and feel and be so invested in the characters while there's a world that. Maybe, it was on the SCIFI level. If it's if it's I, know this kind of science that's being introduced in the film that we not we might not necessarily know or comprehend We do feel it through the characters lenses. We do feel it through what they're experiencing. So I don't know if there's anybody that's able to do that. He can be so ambitious in. and matching different types of genres are different elements of films that we've all loved in familiar with and totally used them in create them in a new way in his way.

CDC Issues Sweeping Temporary Halt On Evictions Nationwide Amid Pandemic
"Ready to distribute a potential Corona virus vaccine as soon as late October. The CDC has also issued an order to temporarily stop home evictions nationwide, which yes, sounds like it's not necessarily the agency's mandate. But the CDC is using authority from the Public Health Service Act of 1944 and making the case that evictions could increase the spread of covert 19. NPR's Selina Simmons. Duffin wondered if this was legal. A bold move. That's how health law professor Aaron Fu say. Brown of Georgia State University described this order from CDC and the way it uses the agency's legal authority. The regulations under the Public Health Service Act, provide the CDC the power to take certain action to control communicable disease, particularly across the state lines. The way the law was written, she says, enlists different examples such as inspection, fumigation, disinfection sanitation. Pest extermination, so the destruction of animals did you hear housing or evictions? They're not in there with the eviction order, she says. CDC is basically arguing. If you could take steps to prevent animals or other types of, you know, please from spreading infectious disease, then could you also take some steps to prevent people from being forced to crowd Since crowding? Help Spread Cove? It The order applies to people earning less than $100,000 a year if they say they would become homeless or move in with friends or family if evicted, and it wouldn't provide any financial relief to renters or landlords. That concerns Tia Cherie Gaynor, a political science professor at the University of Cincinnati. Someone can't afford to pay their rant. They're not going to be able to pay four months of rent at wants when this ends right when the moratorium is over. Congress would need to pass a law to provide that financial assistance. Whether this is legal or not, is up in the air. Legal aid groups across the country issued statements in response to the order, saying in large part, it's unclear what this means. We're still trying to figure it out. Many hailed the effort to halt evictions. But legal challenges are likely and may include lawsuits that argue CDC does not have the authority to do this. Those legal challenges, says health law professor Lindsay Wiley of American University could have implications that stretch far beyond housing and evictions. Ah, lot rides on whether judges decide this order is legal. Those decisions. Either way, whether they uphold it or strike it down are gonna have really big implications for the federal role in the pit, then take response going forward. For example, she says, if you get a decision, upholding this order that could embolden a future Biden administration issue a national mask mandate. On the other hand, if a judge strikes this down That could tie the hands of the federal government to take nationwide action to try to curb the spread of the virus. Whoever is in the White House, the order is set to go into effect tomorrow. Selina Simmons Duffin. NPR news Later today on all things considered, we've gotten usedto Wildfire season

Lindsay Davenport and the US Open
"What's happening? Interesting year I'd say. Let's make sense out of tennis in. Late. August two, thousand twenty. Where to begin here because usually we do these things and we well, you know in Cincinnati Sheila and the week before that, she looked why she's coming off a Wimbledon fourth-round. I got nothing here. I. Mean. We're I. Guess You know what? Let's. Let's start with. Let's start with social justice is a moving target but obviously, we're doing this on Thursday when there is no tennis at the tennis center mostly because of Naomi socket you let's just. I think Reagan outpaced by news you to. Top line outs. Just amazed at this young lady and how she has really. Grown into the person and the leader that she is I mean we saw her two years ago, John Win, a US Open under controversial circumstances almost crying when she got the trophy not the happy tears by the way we saw her not comfortable in the spotlight. And we've seen her truly in this past year really just blossom into this amazing leader and I, you know I think we thought that it was possible but I didn't think at this young age in her early twenties that she would be the type of player person who would be leading our sport and it's amazing to see. We haven't had player willing to sacrifice really willing to. Do whatever necessary for the greater good and look past. Oh by tennis or my match or anything else put all of that ahead to make a bigger impact in it's amazing. I. Mean Honestly yesterday as all these stories kept coming through I was getting the chills and then she was just amazing just doesn't this is important and you know what happened. It forced that forced it allowed me to bring it up with my young kid something that maybe that I don't know what would have happened I'm talking to a six year old about why this is going on in the world and a lot of that is because of nine soccer. I think too that she had a lot of people within tennis scrambling. And someone said to me, I do radio shows lead said, well, isn't she the highest paid female athlete and Michael Do? That is like, yeah, all the more reason for her not to do like since when does that cut your way of anything that makes it all the more impressive that many business relationships that she needs to keep in mind I Did you have any insight what brought this on mean you know there's she gives it here. She's self identified. There's boyfriend there's yolks he was in Minneapolis. You any insight as to what? Spurred us. Not. Really you know I was fascinated during the pandemic lockdown about hearing in. About her going to Minnesota and being willing. To take such a strong stand honestly during a pandemic and we have so many crazy things going on right now and I was I remember thinking wow, that is really remarkable from her. And then when this all came about. You know my first reaction was well, I can't believe it, and then about five minutes later I'm like, yeah good for her and you know the the support of everybody in the tennis world from what I've seen so far at least on social media and other platforms, it's remarkable and I think that everybody knows. Now I mean we've had players in the seventies, lead us and be willing to sacrifice, and be will link to walk away and willing to fight for the greater. Good. A lot of that kind of went away and there was. All of a sudden, you get a player again that's like, nope, this is way more important than my tennis or anything else. I think that she she had the respect of everyone the tennis world she's now earned it from you know other people around the world. And all this is in the context of a major seventy, two hours away and nobody's going anywhere. Everybody's going. You've thought like give it was going to fly to a different destination I mean she's doing this when everybody is in. Lockdown Where are you? If there's a continuum here? We have this among our colleagues. Some people say, this is not this is reckless come back in twenty twenty one and other people say shows got to go on we don't even need. This bubble where are you sort of in the? Spectrum. You know when I first heard about these kind of plans these in I think it was about may of us Ta's maybe thinking about doing it in a bubble and I remember going wow, that's crazy. I can't believe that you've got all these people find him from all over the world. It's not as simple as everyone based in the states and figuring this out then each step of the way, everything nope this is going to be fine players can fly in from overseas. This is what we have organized is now hearing from players that are in this bubble for like the last two weeks hearing from people that are playing in the Cincinnati. Tournament in New York If, I were current player and I was experiencing that I don't think I'd play outside bubble now. They're talking about you know Rome minute robes out some kind of paper that going over their rules where they strongly the players don't go out to eat. Yes. That should be a rule I mean that's the kind of the behavior that could really bring down tournaments I mean unfortunately, if you WANNA play, you're going to have to really kind of be in a bubble and. You WanNa make sure everyone else around you is also though in a bubble so you don't pick it up from them or from their coach from their hidden partner from their trainer. So I think this this tournament can these tournaments continue to go through without anything crazy happening with no really positive results in the virus not spreading and then the US being able to contain it. I don't see how you don't. I. Don't see how you can play not in a bubble for the rest of of this pandemic. That's a real real reversal. I, mean it used to be I can't the USDA's being so strict and these these guidelines are oppressive. You're saying the opposite you're saying you go to Europe and these players are going to say, wait a second why are their fans walking around the grounds? That would be me and I'm obviously the eat everyone I mean we saw hal help scared to go into a bubble. So everybody has their own their own comfort level. If it were me I would not feel comfortable playing a tournament where I know that everyone could have gone out to dinner or could have gone to a nightclub and then be within six feet of me. The next day that is me so we'll see I mean in Europe, the cases went down it sounds like they're starting to pick up. Again, this virus is not going anywhere anytime soon. So to think that their past it or it's not going to happen, you can't have that mindset. You have to have the mindset if we're organizing something that it's around, how do we get? Away with not having it get into our atmosphere. It's it's a bubble life unfortunately.

So on today's show, I'm very excited to g she Donald Albright Donald Founder I'm president of. TV, which is an Atlanta based production studio is hidden costs. Vanished. Monster Linden in La. Many money. Combined the has reached more than five hundred, million dollars to date and TV as they would suggest is increasingly inking deals beyond podcasting, TV and even recently striking deal. So don't welcome to the. Past. Thank you for having me. Let Veer. And Eighty joining us from Atlanta today as you've been hung down. Yes I am I've been here for. How long has it been now? Feels like this. Browse data. Yeah. Monday or Saturday I can't tell but yeah. I mean Atlanta from California originally but. Moved here to Atlanta. After after I should go into college and then I love the city. Yes I was going to ask you she's a what brought you to Atlanta. I know your your background was in music permission an are. Yeah. Yes. So I'm from the Bay Area San Jose California my mom actually moved to Atlanta when I was in high school So I went to thousand state after graduating high school for about a year and a half, and then at certain point came to visit my mom and a friend of mine his older brother was going to Clark Atlanta University a historically black college. I went to the campus. Saw Beautiful Campus I saw beautiful women and I said I have to go here one day. So I transferred transferring from Saudi state to Clark Atlanta and the you know had half my family was already here so. Ended up staying and just building. Building out my business here, and it'll be started started in music industry in Atlanta. And in that time, he builds up a pretty enviable client list to have to say like Jay z outcast, can you take back to that time? What what can have brought e to setting? Is It D. Day and statements and some of the this the standout moments from that time. Yeah I mean so many it's been twenty years It all happened very much like podcasting kind of by accident I've always been into our entrepreneur started my first company when I was about eighteen years old shirt COMP design company Printing Company which I learned from Tom, this profit organization that I was working with. So I was always been business-minded my my dad his own construction company or has own construction company. So I've always seen him write his own business as well and. When I got to Atlanta. We just for in this music scene that was very Coming up like yet outcasts yet goodie mob TLC, usher and we kind of just. Went to this party and met a few people start networking a few business cards and decided, hey, we should just. Hang out with these people and start to promote and pass out flyers in. Other the company actually started because we were losing money I was the only one with a car. So it was causing gas money to go from point eight point be so I said, hey guys, we've got a pool our money together to share in these losses in eventually someone said, hey, how much you guys charge to put up those posters and we got to come up with a number that's count started the business but it evolved from there obviously from running a promotions company out of the Dorm Room Clark Atlanta to. You know taking artists like masterpiece in Yeah Jay Z. His. In promoting concerts in the going on the road with artists like outkast and Goodie mob and that evolved into management. An are in the and the names started getting bigger and bigger and not just the names bigger. But my relationship with the artists at first, you're a little bit. Distanced from the creative process, you're only on the promotions and marketing side. That I became more involved in the creation of albums, the management of talent stuff like that. So it was it's been great I mean I've traveled the world three times artists toured you know Africa with Chris Brown in the US with With usher festivals all over the world. So I there's so many standout said it's fun to talk about it because I forget a lot of them but the it's like having two different two different careers in two different lives. Almost you know I'm really interested in how you and your kind of tie founder at tend to fit came to mate. So you okay founder is pain Lindsey, and in a prior life he was in this hybrid even describe them. But like rap rock bands cooled rights here the tree. So interested in night walk forces combined that the you T to mate and and start working together. Is another interesting story so we I I didn't know who pain was, but I knew who the band was right his right side of the tree and he. Yeah the music was so and it's all. It's all about like how you introduced to something. It really has a big impact of what you initially feel about it. So I was managing an artist's name. Lloyd, who was on what he was on Atlantic or universal at the time. But big RB artists that Atlanta and he had producer that pain in his the rest of his band and they ended up collaborating in doing a song. So pain had a song with a very popular Atlanta artist. So new the band from from that perspective and like the music and then. Probably three years later or more actually probably the five years later I got an. Email from a guy named pain Lindsay I'm I've moved on in my career and I'm managing a new artist on on the verge of breaking through and I get an email from pain saying, Hey, I'm money's pain Lindsey A mutated director and I love the shoot a video for your artist and. I didn't know who he didn't recognize the name but a friend of mine who having dinner with me at the time I read the email and he said Oh that's pain from rice out of the tree I said okay. Well, maybe I'll give this guy a shot because before I wasn't sure if you we already have people to do our videos, but because of that connection already knew who he was like. Okay that's that's cool. There's. You know there's tried out. So we shot one video for a couple thousand dollars turn out to be great. He was able to I wasn't quite sure like how good he would be. So I kind of was forcing my creative ideas on him but any and you made them come out great and then we did that times and then I said man, this guy's good I should probably just let him run with the creative ideas and have him bring the video back with his full vision and when he did that the biggest got even better. So I just knew like we have a really good working relationship being able to hear each other right and being able to collaborate creatively and in respecting each other from creative and business standpoint. So. It was like the foundation of US later becoming business partners
Service robots may help COVID-19 impacted hotels recover
"Virus has fundamentally changed some aspects of the hotel industry. And as K Y W. Charlotte, Reese explains, some players in the industry are embracing the change and turning to technology. I think people are changing their mind set in terms of the safety and sanitation of things. Dr. Lindsay Lee, a tourism and hospitality professor at Temple University, says a couple companies are trying to roll out UV robots don't go into hotel rooms and kind of Star Wars laser beam everything, Lee says. The cleaning robots will still need technicians and maintenance crews. Of course, things like We'll check in or no longer media actual key to be able to go into your room so everything could be done through your phone. So it kind of puts a damper on some of the frontline jobs within the hotel industry, Lee says. There's also new job postings. For
Out of Chicago IN-DEPTH!
"Able to the back to another episode of this week in photo. I. Am your host Frederik van Johnson today. I'm sitting down with my friend and fellow Chicagoan Mr Chris Smith Chris and I. Talk about the latest out of Chicago Conference and how that win is pivot virtual all that stuff, and then how how he's planning to move forward in the future amidst this whole sort of sea change in the conference space. Chris. Math. Welcome to the show man how you doing. I'm great. Thank you Frederick great to be here. Thank you very much. Is Good to have you on man I'm excited to chat with you for a lot of reasons, some of which will become clear during this conversation but Yeah, that's a cliffhanger. So. Say to chat with you so. For the folks that may not have heard of out of Chicago the conference, what is out of Chicago give us the quick. Elevator Pitch Origin Story of that conference. Sure. So out of Chicago originally was my blog like I think has been like eleven or twelve years now but eventually, we started doing conferences in Chicago. This would have been the seventh annual get together conference downtown Chicago where was this eighth year I don't know but but that was what we did for a long time and then. You know we've. Seen over the years that coming in person all the way to Chicago because people would come from around the country around the world to it that we found that it's better to go. To the destinations where people want to shoot. So we've started now our conferences are around the country we're going to MOAB and Acadia National Park this year and Death Valley next year. So all sorts of different places and really have gotten a little bit away from doing the downtown out of Chicago Conference. But this year we did it online instead and it was fabulous and basically the response we got from everybody was don't go back to how you did it before this is awesome that we can do it. In our pajamas from home, and then you know just just get to see all the general things because because originally the conference was kind of all different. Genres I mean you've been an instructor in the past and we would have portrait people Lindsay Adler, we would have people you know doing landscape we had kind of everything lots of street photography, and now instead it's like, okay, we're GonNa go to the botanic. Garden. And we're just GONNA do flower and garden photography or we're going to like I said, Acadia National Park and when we're doing. Landscapes in creative nature photography. So so that's kind of how we've changed. But yeah, everything's totally different for everyone now right. So yeah. So everything's really changed the last couple of months. Yeah, and it's sort of it's a I. think that change was coming anyway you and I've had offline conversations sort about the state of the of the photo conference in Education Online Education Industry and how that's converging and The old school conferences are the attendance was going to getting lower and lower, and now after this latest adventure with co vid Can't conferences are getting getting canceled and moving online much like yours did yours was able to pivot a lot easier than some of those bigger conferences in my from my external opinion. And you correct me if I'm wrong largely because you'd already built sort of this next generation conference that wasn't, Hey, come check out these massive array of boats that that people spend gazillions of dollars on. Downstairs go to the education. You're kind of flip that on its head. Can you talk about that a little bit sure. So I mean when we decided to run our first photography conference, we were running it and I had never been to a photography conference before I'm like, I don't know what would you do it a photography conference well, you'd go out and shoot. You'd get to hang out. With the you know all these people that you follow online, it's like a really great networking opportunity and yeah, we'll teach them classes too but it was really different especially like a set like eight years ago most places like you come you watch one lecture then stay in watch another lecturer then watch more and go home or whatever, and then go to the trade show or whatever. So What we built was really based around shooting, and so we did a lot of the street photography and the downtown architecture photography in Chicago but. But by switching it that way, it made it a whole lot easier to go virtual. Well, that's kind of ironic because we're doing the shooting but it we didn't have this huge big infrastructure behind. We're just a very small company. I have a few people to help me run it and they're awesome by the way and. Is. A great team that I have and and we were able to it was unbelievable when this all hit and we didn't cancel another conference. We weren't planning on doing this normal out of Chicago conference. We were going to do something that was just architecture. which we weren't able to do of course but. But instead. We said. We've got all these instructors. We had seventy instructors at the thing I said I've got a list of. All these people we could email them immediately, we can ask, Hey, do you WanNa do this while in the best part of it was that they were all stuck at home and so they're like, yeah, I got nothing better to do. So all these years. Yeah. All were like excited about it and I mean it was really it was really meant as something that we wanted to do. But it was also a benefit foot benefit for our instructors who had to cancel all of their workshops I mean, that's I mean that's their livelihood is going around the world teaching, and so we did this instead to help you know cover some of those costs for them that they that they're

"Hey guys. I'm Lindsay's Arctic and this is players conversations with athletes artists entertainers about their interest in sports and vice versa. And what they've learned along the way this is part two of the Washington nationals journey to the world series win through the eyes of star Pitcher Max Scherzer and those close to him as I was covering the story and is the team continued to fight adversity and beat the odds. Sherzad kept referencing. His wife Erika so in this episode. You're going to get a closer look at who Erica. Sherzer is and how she factored into that world series win without even realizing it the night. The nationals won the world series. She talked to me on the field after and shared what I found was fascinating insight into how the wives role is just as vital as a position on the field. I think it's easy for them to give up hope at times when my who thinks get frustrating and struggle and we can see it from an outside point of view. And that's why I think I was telling you the other night like we have to be that support system and we have to be the one that absorbs everything for them and just keeps going and keeps them going and one of our closest friends that also baseball. I says you have to be cheerleader. You have to be there for them and just keep on going and keep him going. And that's what we try to do back at hard. I mean it's hard but that's why I'm here for like I love the heck out of him. I'm going to do anything for him. Let me give you a little context on Max and Erica. And I'M GONNA start with Erica because when you first meet her. She's striking. She's super tall. She's beautiful but beyond that. What hits you immediately as how warm she is. How are tickets? She is and besides being a great mom supporter for Max. She's also doing a ton of work in the community and elsewhere maximum. Erica met the first week of college her freshman year at the University of Missouri where she played softball when one of her teammates introduce them. Eric told me it was his smile. That grabbed her attention. I in fact he was really romantic. I love thinking about that juxtaposition from the Max we see with his intensity on the mound. What intrigued me about the two of them as a couple is both were athletes stellar athletes and from growing up to college to the pros. Erica told me they both came close to winning titles including when Max's Detroit Tigers lost the world series to the giants in two thousand twelve but neither had ever won a championship so this run meant something special and their bond is something fierce. We begin where we left off the morning of game five of the World Series Max. Sherzer that night starter. He was in so much pain he could barely move. Erica was just starting your day taking care of her two little girls and Max was about to change everything and it was awful. I knew we'd done some treatment in game four Tried to get ready for game five to get ready and I went to bed at night thinking I was All right let's hope that treatment works and wake up and you know hopefully I feel good him and we we just go Remember Waking Up and I could just feel in my trap that no. It went backwards. That were the arm right now. I came. Turn my head I'm mike hobbling up stairs and stuff so I knew I was in a really bad spot. You know where you try and make a star in its game five of the World Series and I've done crazy things and you know maybe there's a way to pitch through it and as I continue to you know. Try address myself because even dress myself so it was just You know it was just a real bad spot. Realizing that There's just no way I'm going to make it Not with not with this type of pain. There's no way you can. You can fight this type of pain. I mean I can't lift my arm. How am I gonNA throw a ball with the girls and everything and he walked down the stairs and couldn't even move? All he could do was walk. He couldn't do anything else and I could just see the look in his face so I drop everything and go to him and it just it was just that feeling of knowing what is at stake and this is bad and so I just. Maybe it's the the mom in me but I just went into that lake that mom mode. Okay you're going to be okay. We're into this. We have to this. I we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA showered. We're going to address. We're going to do this Texas Person I've got this. I'll text these people say you just went into that. That mode of here's what we have to do. And I'm taking over this and it just I don't know it. It was awful and now a good moment but then as I got closer to park like yeah it's timeless job. Ross. No HE'S GONNA. Start so some a text message out like hey I know you guys who kind of knew I was not a good spot and you know I was talking to Joe Throughout the play offs and just different things that he was working on and he was saying this whole time to get a moment. Hey pitching game too and he and he actually looked really good and so You know for me I I knew I knew. At the moment I was not better job. Ross I saw what he had done. There was no way I could do this. That it's his turn to take the ball and text messages. Say get ready. You know you're going to have it to Joe. Roth told me when he got that text message from Max Sherzer that he was obviously concerned for his teammate. He was shocked but he did say there was a sense of adrenaline. That kicked in with the news that he could end up being the guy to pitch game five. He said he didn't really believe it would happen. Though until within the hour he got a phone call from national's management saying you are GonNa be the one. Meanwhile the nationals were in the midst of calling an impromptu press conference to announce the news. Everyone was shocked to hear. If you all know Max obviously pitcher with a broken nose he's been hurt before he's gone through things and when he comes in and says that he's hurt this bad he's hurt and I can tell you now that he's he's very upset. He wants to be out there with his teammates But hopefully we can get him back here for either game six or seven. I'm disappointed as I possibly can. And beyond that pitched I mean that's game five of the World Series I. I've pitched through so much crap in my career. That would be easy to pitch at this point. This is literally impossible to do anything with. Nobody knew what to think. There was a sense of shock inside that Media Room. As thirty to forty members of the media listened to that news and as we all walk back out onto the field. I remember thinking. Did that really just happen? And what's going to happen next? I was there covering that. Game for. Nbc in Washington. I had seen my former ESPN colleague. Tim Kurkin there on the field just prior to that press conference in Iran to Tim. Because I wanted to find out what were his thoughts. A guy who's covered major league baseball for forty years his thoughts on what we just saw. Hap what is your take on what we saw happen tonight. What magazine before this drug just goes to show you how difficult it is to play? Major League baseball if you're injured and he is really injured. Mark Sharon told us he's had that exact thing and it takes a good three days to get better and he said in the meantime. You can't do anything you can't shave. You can't move your head nothing all you WanNa do is just lie down and stay still. I think he's GonNa Pitch Game Seven if there is a game seven now. Obviously a lot has to happen before then and he's going to have to recover but knowing Max Scherzer. There's any chance he can pitch he's going to pitch. Did you think he was going to be able to play? I kept asking him. What did the doctor say and he said they told him he would be ready in forty eight hours that he just needed the shot to kick in and so I said just trust. The doctors trust the process and I mean he seemed.

"Time received some crazy baseball. We've crazy baseball. Heaven sitting in and some of the Games in the postseason series have gone on here. We've been some crazy games. I've not gone away so we know I think we all respect How how old. And Carl's point game and how all the grind Just because we're wanting you can't have that Eaton's holiday that him on her side but not not in. Not In baseball baseball anything can happen. You can win four games in the baseball so I don't want to take lightly given what we understand. Our opponent is a very vulnerable. What about you In terms of you know what does this mean to you. I guess this time or why like the other the game. You had game to LCS When you dominated you know what what made that different for you than maybe other Games I mean in terms of just what it meant or you know what I mean is you've had such a stellar career can get better you know when the whole thing it was that simple and that night. Max Get one step closer because the national swept the cardinals. The atmosphere was insane. The energy was through the roof as the team partied on the field. I went onto the field and I saw Max. He found his wife Erika. They were hugging when he looked up and saw his is. There were tears in his eyes. I remember them sparkling diamonds and his smile was so wide that I knew it was going to hurt so bad. The next day I ask Max's wife Erica. What the pivotal moment for her and this whole journey was and she actually took it back to that very moment. Gosh when they clinched the and I'll see us seeing him on the stage like looking at like when we caught is same thing with the world series and also because it was like we're going back there was just something to it But even just with the world series once they got that final out just like falling into the seats crying. Just like it really. It was this sense of disbelief like it really happened it. Just it was amazing on the field and I will never forget this. Max Screamed at the top of his lungs. We're going to the world series. I left that scene. I was walking off the field and I saw someone I recognized. I saw former national superstar. Jason Worth who had retired and I remember thinking what the heck is Jason. Worth doing here and he was looking he was soaking it. All in. Here's what he said. Why did you come back well? I've talked good questions. I think I think looking back on it. I was just Poland for these guys. Obviously and then now what what these guys were were doing and kind of seeing it through. I think is what is basically is why I went. I wanted I wanted to see you know. I wanted to see it finally accomplish. It was my dream to win. A World Series in Washington obviously didn't accomplish that. But you know a lot of things The seven years I was there and then you know. Here's these guys that a lot of these guys. I watched grow up and hone forum in Canada. See this whole thing. Come to fruition in my own career and and and. I think that's that was the Big Bang just the closer the possibility of it all kind of coming together the way we planned it and wanted to wanted to see it through and You know be there and see a person because as you know. Sporting events are always better in person. Jason Worth was about to watch one of the wildest World Series in Major League Baseball history. The nationals were headed to Houston for games one and two Max. Scherzer was on the mound for game. One it was a rough start. He allowed to run double in the first inning but he regained his control. Kept THE ASTROS AT BAY. Earning the win. The nationals took both games in Texas but then something nobody expected they lost the next two back in Washington. Dc but it was Max who was set to start game five hoping to give his team a chance to head back to Texas. Just one win away from a world series title but what no one knew is. Max was hurting. We've done in treatment of Kim Ford trying to get ready for five to get ready and You I went to bed at night. I was all right. It was hoped that she works. Wake up over this. I feel good. I mean we just go never waking up and you just feel in my trap no backwards that were. I'd already been up and with the girls and everything and he walked down the stairs and just couldn't even move. All he could do was walk. He couldn't do anything else and I could just see the look on his face. Swipe drop everything and go to him and it just it was just that feeling of knowing what is at stake. This is bad and so I just maybe. It's the the mom in me but I just went into that lake that mom mode. Now you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA be okay. We're into this. We have to do this. I we're GonNa get you fed showered. We're going to get dressed. We're GONNA do this Texas Person. I've got this Texas people say don't bug you just went into that that mode of here's what we have to do and I'm taking over this and it just I don't know it. It was awful. If you all know Max you know He. Obviously you picture a broken nose. He's been hurt before he's gone through things and when he comes in and says that he's hurt this bad he's hurt. That was nationals manager. Dave Martinez the moment he announced Max. Scherzer would not be pitching game. Five of the world series. It was so quiet in that room where the press conference was held. People were in shock walking back to the field in next week's episode the aftermath the national reaction to Max's injury also hearing for Max in his own words Jason. Worth also on his reaction and much more in the lead up to the world series win. Thank you so much for listening to this episode. If you enjoy this and subscribe you can do it on apple podcast.

"But as pressure because you wanna make sure you go out there, and and really get the crowd warmed up for him. I mean, that's that's what I that's what I'm getting paid to do this. What I've been asked to do. And and getting the direct support slot is at this early in my career is a massive step up, and I'm super excited to get that opportunity. What happens after you leave the stage in that role as direct support? Like, what are you? You just kinda hang hang out like for us. We like to play lots of games, usually though, you go out, and you watch the rest of the show the rest of the show and enjoy it. But you taking notes too because it's might be. But I take mental notes like, you know, somebody who's obviously been around that long and has had a career like that. I mean, they obviously do a lot of things that are right. So yeah, you just sit back. You learn what works and what you can do in your own way. Maybe you get this from just small little tanks. You never know. Just ask you the question that probably is going to sound like the most question you've ever heard. I always wonder when I watch people because I love to show is and how do you remember every single leering, and you don't forget ever, and you're just playing your songs in. It's just I mean is there is that really the most city audit question you remember her? Heard or is there. Oh, no. I mean, if you if you have been to any show, you Alern that every night, I will screw up lyrics to songs and always happens. And you just at the end of the day. You just laugh it off. There's not it's not gonna make her bright your show. But I guarantee people don't even know, you know, half the people definitely don't know. But but yes, one of those moments that you feel dumb in the moment. But at the end of the day if you take a step back. It's like it's not that big of a deal like hockey when I watch hockey. I'm like, wow, they're such great athletes, and by the way there on ice do your name or it's like, oh, yeah. You're up there and you're performing and by the way, you remember the whole set lists in the hall, right? Anyway. Maybe that's about it anything. I mean, the more you get used to doing something the easier. It is. But yeah, I mean, you have nights where you're not all as on as you were other nights and offer get lyrics all the time. But that ain't no big deal is what it is. You just go up there. And you you do the best you can. And sometimes you're gonna mess up. Nobody's perfect in that moment. You know what? I mean, you just have fun and hope that the people that paid their money to be there leave thanking well, it was a fun show. I love. Go see him again. That's ultimately what you want. What's your Super Bowl? What would be your Super Bowl moment? Super Bowl moment. For me. As an artist to grow to have my career grow to the point to where I can play in a stadium, but the Super Bowl moment for me. One million percent would be to headline. Carolina Panthers football stadium. That would be huge. I love to get to that point in your career to where you can headline of stadium, but go to the stadium that you been a million times to watch football games. But now, you play music in it, and all those people have shown up for you would be the pentacle..

"Hey there, I'm Lindsay aren't and this is players conversations with country music artists about their interest in sports, and I am so excited to bring you this episode because it was so much fun to be in a room with these two guys. And this is the first time on this podcast that I've been able to sit down and artists with an athlete in the same room in what I saw come out of that room. It was magic to be in that conversation because there was so much that these two gentlemen had in common. It was Christly and Thomas Davis Chris lane country star on the rise one of his hits. I don't know about you. It's phenomenal song. I love it. He's going to be on tour starting in March with Dan shea. But he's also joining Brad Paisley's tour opening for him for his summer tour. Thomas Davis is the Panthers linebacker, and he is a pro bowler. He's played in two Super Bowls one of them. His arm was barely attached to his body. And he tells that story it was phenomenally interesting, but Thomas Davis now finds himself in an interesting position because he is a free agent in the NFL. And I appreciate his honesty when talking about that situation because it was when he did not expect. But what I found here is these to their friends they've known each other. I didn't know just how deep their bond was what I did know was that Thomas Davis post stuff on Instagram of his interest in liking Chris lane. And he's even sung his songs there when he's been with his family on vacation. And then he posts them Chris lane though is a diehard Carolina Panthers fan. So when he walked in the room in Thomas Davis was there. I thought for a moment that he might pass out, and it was such an awesome reaction. Because when I go in there, I think okay, Chris lane superstar, you know, and to see him gig out over somebody like that. It was really fascinating. And it was I opening and the stories that these two shared you have to hear from the fact that they both have they have five ACL surgeries between them which I think is insane. Also, the fact that sports was really at the start of both of their careers before Chris lane took a pivot to music, so many fun things to talk about. So. Many times that we were laughing until we could barely breathe. But also, you know, I appreciate them both getting very candid Chris lane talking about, you know, some of the things that he has realized his career in music and Thomas Davis talking about how this is the most potentially depressing turned motivating experience he's ever been in his an NFL player because for the first time he goes into free agency. He does not know where he will end up and he feels a little bit slighted by the Carolina Panthers. So I hope you enjoy this honesty and the fun conversation. We had as much as I did I'm beginning this one with Chris lane describing how these two met one another in the first place. I hope you enjoy. We I actually met randomly. I was in Greenville South Carolina playing in a golf tournament like the BMW. I think is what it was. And I think we'd been talking back and forth to flow through Instagram a little bit, and he had a golf tournament for his charity that he was doing on that Sunday. And I randomly was available..

"When you think about what it has taken like how you said you've learned a lot about yourself in that to to be able to be in the space where you are right now and compare that to athletes because I was thinking about this the other day, I was thinking how much must there be in common among the characteristics that that you have right? I know like, what do you what do you think that things preparation and the amount of work that goes into get into a certain level like those athletes that they're working everyday working out at four AM getting up and watching tape after dinner dirt like the amount of preparation that goes into what makes them elite. What makes them at that level? It's just it's different. There's how many kids want to go to the NFL now many kids want to do. This select few that are working hard like that good up there. So for music. I mean, you go down Broadway on Nashville any night. There's some incredib-. Blackstone there. You're gonna hear good music anywhere. But it's it's one of those select few that are really doing that tiny extra thing that kind of gets them that one leg up, you know. So what your preparation, then do you? What do you give a set routine that you kind of a little bit up think for anything just writing songs really diving into not turn it off? So for us from me, it's like conversations at dinner conversations, family, friends and thinking ideas, you know, what what can we write about next next record anything like that? There's other guys out there that want want it bad. So you got to want it just as bad work your butt off. Because if you don't somebody else will. It's interesting that you when you pull all your from your personal experiences. And I know like, obviously, that's what song writers do. But when you see your videos, they're all your personal experiences. Literally like the home video in five more minutes. Yeah. Do you envision that? That's like do you is that just something that you love to do or. Share, you know, telling stories feel like at the root of what I do. It's it's telling stories so that's country music's all about I like, my videos to kind of compliment that and to see the story on the song through a film, or whatever, you know. So anything to help tell the story is something I really like. I love it. When you said you went through a really tough time. What was that? Man, two thousand sixteen was not not my favorite. You have lived. We I thought we'd been doing good. We had a couple of albums come out and went to number one on the charts. And singles that did. Well, we were out in Los Angeles film when idle we're doing like a mentor accession. Okay. The news that night. It's like you're getting dropped by your label. And I was like holy cow. That's not how I thought we'd start the year. But you know, he just kind of got a bit yourself up by the bootstraps and keep rocking and rolling. And so we did it took about a year of work and attorneys and all that mess. I don't wanna have to turn is at twenty years. Yeah. You do then we got out of it. And I'm having more fun now than I've ever had music Oregon now, and we're on the road and shows or selling out again. So sometimes life sucks, but you just got to keep rolling. But that's hard stuff. I mean when you get that kind of news, right? What what was the toughest part of that? You know, it was probably just. Inside just wanting to have a little hope, you know, you couldn't see the light of the end of the time. You're like man when are we ever going to get out of this? You know, just nothing we were doing seemed to be working. So that was probably the toughest part was just mentally inside..

"Like, I remember driving through the parking lot at school until my guys. Like, there's us boy, she's just looked incredible. And. So but it all worked out between us you met her in kindergarten longtime kindergarten class. This starts kindergarten next year. So I'm gonna be hiding. Yeah. She you might meet his wife there. What is it? What's your first memory, though of seeing her is that is it there? It would have been we all buddies like we just grew up together and her kindergarten diary, she had a code name for my name was coke. And like the Buddy's name was like Pepsi or something like it was something like that. And her kindergarten. Dia MRs Gooby, McCreary written and hearts all over it. So it's it's one of those things I think I have so many questions like why they call you coke. Why? She goes they didn't like they talk about me. Apparently when I was like right there, but they just call coke. So I would know they were talking about me just elementary school. Kind of how crazy is that? And then to think years say you gotta homecoming you worked up the nerve. Yeah. Well, she didn't want homecoming Queen. I couldn't believe it. So I got a text. Now. I don't think that's right. And then it kind of went from there during the music video for the trouble with girls, we shot that like the very next week, and I was onto made everything better, right? All those shoes. Still like what is going on here? Like, she wasn't all about it. But it a visually convinced her to keep going on dates with me and. That must have been so crazy going through that. And then doing like videos all that stuff. And you're still that's pretty impressive. We did all that video shot on the high school campus. Like just like what is happening, but it was fun. I really those were besides two thousand eighteen probably say that was the best year my life. It was just so much fun and bring in that part of it full circle two thousand eighteen do you say that because you just got married just got married like so much change has happened in my life into team. But offer the better get married to my best friend starting to home together. And this having around the road. Some we're getting the dog in December like so many coupons. I'm a little nervous about the dog. But I'm sure it'll be great. I don't have any pets. I can't help you there. Oh, I have kids nurse and I'm on the road. So it's just like the dog going to do away. But we've got friends that are right there. But also like musically got my first number one this year. And now the song climates like things are starting to click a little bit just overall in life. And it's a lot of fun. How much different is where you are. Now from where you were back there right after you were winning idol kind of know who I am as a guy and as an artist, but just not I want to say, no, how wanna live not wanna do give things wanna do everything. So back then it was like drinking water firehose. I got what was happening. I was just like oh my gosh. And now it's just like life slow down a little bit. And just kind of take it as it comes and enjoy it. He just went back to the the Opry right play. What how is that to be back? There was no place like the grand ole Opry. Like that to me is a country music fan history. And it's like the one place still really get nervous for going stayed like butterflies galore, like just something different about it. It really is. What do you do when that happens just kind of pump myself up? All right, man. Just just go get it. And as soon as you get out there and start saying, it's good. But it's just that the thirty seconds to sixty seconds before you're like man, this grant will offer. I mean, don't you have a pre game ritual or something to get you in your head space or a little bit. I used to listen to rocky like are you serious are used to like.

"So it's been a little bit different. Except for the watch. I mean that was when I still think about that moment, I could probably cry. I still get goosebumps. There's nothing luggage live hockey to think is probably the most funds for was fast. And especially if it's overtime on three or Three the. or the shoot out to me. It's like football. I love it. But like if you break down twelve minutes of action hockey, it's six minutes, straight and just each other flying boards. And it's pretty fun saying you get into it as a kid, then your dad gets you hooked in you're playing what was your sport of choice baseball school. And I was a pitcher since he was a pitcher. And he just kinda got me into it. And I was definitely as grew up. More of a Greg Maddux style pitcher, then a pan just invert Lander type if you may I did not have any pop in my fastball, but I hit my spots and my senior year. I mean idle for me was my junior year. And I came back from a senior high school played again senior you think ahead like fifty one strikeouts to four walks like pretty ratio. All right. But yeah, I talked to the local college coaching coach he said he had a D one slide but a d four fastball. So it's just one of those things pretty funny. Wait a minute. But okay. So you go back. You just mentioned this. What was that? Like for you going back senior year after doing that all it was different. It was fun right off the bat. Like the public school system made me like walk to class with two armed guards like to every class. And none of my friends talk to me. Everybody likes like I was trying to be normal again. Like, I was just trying to boot my friends and hang out, and they just it was not good to finally after two weeks looked at the cops. I said why don't you guys watch me from like two hundred yards away? And then my friends started talking and uniform or were they okay? So it wasn't even like nobody can get close. This isn't snow came back home. But it eventually worked out pretty good. Yeah. I would say so what happened next? So after that senior year, then described when like for, you know, for me like I said earlier like friends and family so important to me and just getting those experiences of being your normal eighteen year old for me was important. So what I did after senior year. We went onto a Brad paisley. I guess that was kind of during that. So it was Monday Tuesday Wednesday owes in school and Thursday Friday Saturday, I was on the road. It was it was interesting dynamic there. It's pretty wild feeling to go from playing in front at twenty thousand people to typing paper thirty minutes later, that's due in like an hour. And you're like, oh, my gosh like paper, but I really have to do this. I know for me. I don't know. It was weird inside. I wanted to wanted to do it. So how did you do that? I mean, how did you compartmentalize all that? And I mean. Are drastically different things. It definitely was. I really don't know didn't consciously think. Okay. This is this. And this is that it's just I just did it a really just went to school. And I don't think of myself any different. I feel like any artist or anybody. That's in the public light just to your you know, and other folks like oh saw you last night on TV. Yeah. Cool. You're like why are you in class? Just back hanging out like everybody else. China get. Yeah. To armed guards. Yeah. That was that was something else. That was not good. What was the toughest part of that whole time for me going back to school was probably just convincing my friends like the same, dude. Even my my wife now, you know, when I came back, she wouldn't even really talk to me 'cause like it was just different. No, no. I was just like home. Although we were just kind of friends at that point. And nothing crazy. But it was homecoming week that year that finally worked up the nerve to ask her out on the date. And she was like, really. Yeah. So what are you dating at that point at all during idle for? I'd always had my honor..

"Hey there, I'm Lindsay Arnie. And this is players conversations with country artists about their interest in sports. This week's guest is the awesome. Scotty mccreery if you know his name, it's probably because he won American idol back in two thousand eleven but he has had a ton of success since some fun things about Scotty that I learned in our conversation. He adores Tom Brady not a shock because most of the planet. Does he loves scary movies and he met his wife and kindergarten? I think that's amazing and the stories that he shares a round those topics are pretty cool. But the one thing that I took from this that I was floored by was the amount of challenge. I would say that he's gone through in his career things were great. And then he hit a massive roadblock. But what he left me with was understanding that him choosing to believe in himself and take one action in selling something. He believed in turned into his biggest hit so far. Scotty, mccreery tremendous guy still lives in North Carolina. But we can miss him to come to Nashville to talk to me, not just talk to me. It was the week. So he had a lot you know, that was signed up. To do. But he fit me in and we had a great long conversation. And I think he might wanna come back and talk about scary movies at some point. So we'll definitely do that. But I really hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did because I learned a heck of a lot from this guy. And and I think he's really cool. So Sammy week here in Nashville. I mean, what is this like for you in your life, which I imagine it's pretty crazy. Anyway. This week is a little crazy. But in a good way. I mean, everybody's in town and words here with you wards Gamal artist and just a bunch of friends coming together and hanging out, and it's fun. My wife comes in the town. She's department. She's you go do your thing. I'll I'll be here hanging out. But I love this week. It's a lot that love this week. What's the best part about it? Probably after parties. The show itself is words, and but I think it's after party when it really gets fun, and everybody's just cracking up and hanging out you don't get to do that too much. Everybody's so focused, but it's a quick follow artists and stuff for people that don't have the opportunity to do that kind of thing. Take me inside. What is that actually like one of those after parties as an artist I'm still a fan of a lot of these people? So I would just hanging out with my crew and everybody and then Blake or the urban or whoever on George strait's walking around. Sometimes he does little thing. But everybody's just their own person, and relaxed and laid back and no stage personas or anything just being man. It's just fun. Is there any person in particular that you get star struck around George will be that guy Garth, really? But no the coolest thing is after meeting them like I that George strait. He came up to me was hey Scotty. I was like what? But just like how you doing good? Good people. That's what you find a lot in country music. Everybody's just nice. Wow. And you still live in North Carolina do. Yeah. Bone and raise their home. It's home for me. So why? So why why don't you move here? You are here, and we're here. But I don't know. I think for me the way I got started. I started the seventeen years old on idol. And it was just a win their Los Angeles for like four or five months. I was just it was a way from family away from friends, and to me that's such a valued part of my life, as my friends that have grown up with since I was five and my family and having them close and getting married and having everybody kinda gather just think it's important. Eventually I could see ourselves settling down here and call Nashville home..

"Well, it was seven years. Osama record deal in two thousand one while I left Clemson. I didn't have a record out until I didn't hit. My I didn't come on radio into two thousand seven the record. Didn't even come out that same record that that song was on because they were gonna wait till the song got to the top top ten to put a record out. So I'll put out three or four or five singles that only got the top thirty. So they still wouldn't put the record out. So I didn't have a record until two thousand ten three years later after I waited seven years to get a single out. So you're talking I've been there ten I mean, it was just a it was a long time and law a lot of grind. And I see a lot of the other folks that cana- town when I did. And they're just below invite me because you know, there's some dif- different labels work different ways. I was at a smaller label, and they were having issues and with an within their own things and problems with other artists that that just really took away from what I was trying to do. And so it put a damper on, you know, a real hindrance. On my singles, and what I was getting done. But we finally had love like crazy was like, you know, most played song of the year, you know, on two thousand ten and so they put the record out. Finally, what was that moment for you where you were like that was pretty cool. You know, I got my first record out. But then I realized okay. So with a record release here comes going to New York for a week and doing press and data da and like all the other stuff that comes along with that. And more and more and more interviews and more and more people in meet and greet, some more than people that wanna see you. So then that started that process of learning. And so now, it's like, okay. At this point. I've got three kids, and I've got I gotta go. Okay. Well, I can't do that show because. I this is a holiday that I've had blocked to be with family, or if I'm at a show like Lee, you're gonna be going all day. We're going to do we're going to get media all day long. And then we're going to do it dinner, and we're going to have a show. So it's and then you got to one hundred twenty five people meet and greet, you know, before the show. You know? So it gets it's get it gets grueling even now it's like, so what did you how'd you balance that once you do? Well, so that's kinda why because I was then coming home and making records and stuff I was home. So I'm like well now, I'm never seen the family because when I am home, I'm working. So that's one I build a studio on the bus a couple of years ago. So that I can get out on the road and just grinded out their brand come in fact today, I'm leaving today. We just redid the studio got a new bus. I was moving buses two days ago. Got a new bus. I've been in this one bus for like seven years. It's like rattling down the road. Now, we put like five hundred thousand miles on it. So I'm I'm moving buses today. It'll be our first run, and I've got to riders coming out. We'll get out there tonight. We're right all after all night on the bus on the bus because I've got gear and guitars. And I mean, the pro tools everything you would have in any other studios right there on my bus Mike's and all the stuff, and it's a creative space, and it's a coup in this newer buses, kind of creative us all I born would out, and so it's kind of kind of vibe like this room. You know, what I mean, except it's not painted white. But anyway, which is a great dissenting. But so what do that and we'll work hard. And we'll I'll come back, and I will be because..

Every single night. That aware on you after a while, you know, more money Lee. Luckily, my band, and I had I kind of sort of started out with other than my bass player because I've I've found him a couple of years in. He was in the van with us for the last couple of years, but the first couple of years that was the only part we didn't have nail down. But they but everybody my band is still in my man to that today other than that. Wow. Okay. And they they just had four of them just had their eleven year anniversary with me on the road. And they weren't millennials lay knew about look, we just we got a job. We're gonna work. We all they all push through with me. You know, we took turns driving. And so I've got a lot of respect. They're like my brothers. And these guys are. But they're now it's kind of funny. It's like we had our days in the veins were playing in the bars were partying and just having fun. And now, we're all married kids. And they now because I was the one with kids, right? I. Helpful. Yeah. Definitely definitely. And then and then sit in like now, then you know, Saddam he's got to now and read he's got one. And with you know, in like Paul's got one they got one on the way. So now they're starting to get like when I'm going guys seriously. I don't think you understand like I just want to not do nothing today. Like, I just want to stop. But but so it's it's really cool. But, but yeah, those those early days were arguing that mental toughness of being because you either you're on like that, and you can push through or you can't you know, and some people are cut out for there's a lot of people who got a record deal and went out on the road and realized they're like, I want to be a singer. So they go get a record deal, and then they have on the road, and they realized the work that is involved in. I mean, the singing parts easy part. That's that's that's the seventy minutes night. You know a day. It's the all the other stuff, that's like, the hard part, and all the preparation all our work. Do you ever?

"Hey there I'm Lindsay Arctic and this is players conversations with country artists about their interest. In sports. This week's guest is Lee Bryce, he is a superstar by far one of the most talented singer songwriters in Nashville. He's a CNA award winner also Grammy nominee, but why I love this conversation so much was we got to peel the layers of this onion, and this guy is so interesting his song rumor is out there on radio right now getting a lot of play. But he invited me to his cottage to his farm, which is just outside of Nashville. So I want to paint you a little seen here because we pull up outside the gate, and it's this gorgeous land, beautiful little farmhouse. But you know, the gravel you can hear it as you're pulling up the driveway. We couldn't find Lee, right? So we pull up, and I was like where is this guy? I am not even making this up. He pulls around the corner. You know, gravel dust flying through the tires of his souped up. Atv? He's on his ATV. He gets up. I swear to God. He's got this may. Jar in his hand filled with ice water. And he says all so sorry, I'm late. I was I was out shooting buzzards at his pond because he's got a pond on his farm land. And the buzzards were getting the fish so Lee, you know, being a hard work and awesome country guy that he is a takes care of himself. And I knew from that incident, you know, not only because I'm really intrigued about talking about his sports connections. But also because this is definitely a person that I can tell I wanna spend a lotta time with because there's so much to learn he was awesome in so welcoming right from the start. He actually had the opportunity to pursue an NFL future. He he was a walk on at Clemson. And he made it as a starter. And that was something that a lot of people told him he couldn't do. So his story is definitely one a perseverance. But man, it's it's also one of family and challenges along the way, I found his stories about making it a Nashville just as interesting as his stories about making it on the football field at Clemson. He also is just insanely. Really funny and his stories about digging ditches with his daddy. And how he would his wife were highlights for me in this conversation. So if you love his music, you're gonna love this. If you're not even that sure about what he's about. I think you're gonna love him even more. Here's my conversation with Lee, Bryce. So you're you're cottage out here. Amazing. What goes on out here? What are you will? So, you know, this is where eventually we want to build a house out here kind of on this hill behind us. So for now, we'll come out in Raza fan will stay out here for the weekend, or you know, for the night, or, you know, or if we have guest, and my parents, or whatever they come stay out here. But right now, probably the most use it's getting is right out here. Good bit. So like this room. We're sitting in is kind of the dining room, but I'll take this table and move it over and put speakers on it and get my engineering and all set up some Andersen guitars, and we just right? I'll ride all day record a track right down here before I leave this room will have something that sounds kind of like a record done. You know what I mean that night and one day? Yeah. I mean from start to finish. And so we'll continue to work on it. You know and make it, you know, but, but it's pretty cool. You can get done if you really just kind of start and like go for it all stop, you know. You know? I mean, really dive into it headfirst and just don't stop until you get to a point of. Okay. We got this thing kind of in the basket. So what does that look like for you is it like, you're you know, you come and you get all your stuff set or have my my coffee there. Yeah. I kind of do. So I've got a I've got this. Awesome. Young. Not he's really not young kid. He's twenty five, but he's a puppy. But he, but he fulltime on as like my engineers so file ever from writing a song..

"They require a lot of attention. How how do you this kind of goes back to the fantasy football question too? What is your life? Like when you're not on stage. Or you're not writing songs. I mean, do you have time don't do. Yeah. Like, you know, we're here as soon as I'm done with you go into another interview and photo shoot. And then yesterday, I went to breakfast meeting and then got done with that. And you know, what back walk the dog fed him put him back up left. The house wrote a song came back walk the dog again. So you know, it it's it's good. I can't complain. I love my job. And I I really don't mind anything that I have to do for it. 'cause it's a really cool job. I've dug postals before that was a lot less fun. I am. I love when athletes specifically NFL players talk about the moment for them going out on the field. Right. Like before a game and win. What that feels like in the adrenaline and the excitement and having to calm yourself down to right? That's a huge part of it that I think people don't know, especially if it's like Monday night football, right or Sunday night big show. You know, right. You opened a stadium. You know, like I played play Wrigley. One time. What's that like for an artist? It's really cool in very very rarely get nervous. But every now, and then when you do something that you haven't done the first time I played LT field during fest. You're like trying to yourself and calm yourself down at the same time. Yes. Because you don't wanna be like, you know, some some said there's there's a pet nozzle joke. Comedian and he talks about actual rose run out on stage at the rock and Roll Hall of fame induction. He got way too over hyped, and he was out of breath by the first course, I was like you never wanna do that as an artist at. It's so easy to get kinda lost in that. And you know, but you also don't want to come out flat either. So it's that weird thing. And I know that's in that has to have an sports what you're talking about going out for like a big game. That does are also you make me think about UFC. Mike biz bang is a guy that I've worked with and he he's a UFC champion, and he talked about how he used to do it where he would go out. And he thought the key west get yourself is aunt up as possible. Right. But then he realized really fast it absolutely drained you right? And there's the way that you have to be as an athlete is to what you said, you just get yourself to that level. Infield. Like, I believe the most boring phrase in sports is not too high not too low. But if you listen to every single quarterback press conference, I guarantee they will say the time. But it's true. Right. And so, yeah, I think that's interesting. If you deal with the same kind of thing, and I could see that I could see bisbee saying that because I I I'm a huge fan too. So it's like it back in the day like jen's pover- like little evil like way way back in the day. So it's a like randomly the other day. We're in the middle of Iowa and jen's was there and text me today can bring the family back yet. What are you doing here? I don't know Tim Sylvia's out here to walking around. I was like what is happening. Yeah. I mean, that's gotta be. That's gotta be one of those things. It's just really really tough in all sports in anything in music is you don't wanna come out and just wear yourself out by song too. But you also want people to feel energy when you come on stage. What is the moment? You would say for you that might be equal to like making a game winning catch. What is it like where what is the moment that you love the most when you're onstage? So this this didn't happen in my career up until the past couple years. But when we're playing arena. About four or five songs in. And I can stop and just look at the crowd and people start screaming for no reason. And it's also..

"All of them, Washington fans. Yeah. Okay. We're a big network loving network to do this. Then you're letting the cloud. I think it off. She's acknowledged he's out. No, you know, I respect I do respect at an when I think back to just memories even in the old days in our K that that stadium would just bounce that floor wood shake right specifically because they in Washington. It was a whole thing where it would be Dallas week, you know, and nothing else happened people barely worked right because everyone was getting so ready for that rivalry game on Sunday. So I wish it was still that way. I think maybe at some point it can get to that a little bit. But there's gotta be some winning. So we'll see we'll see what happens. I mean. Even just knowing how little things will stick in people's heads just walking around going you like that at me because. Yeah, if you don't know why. Then obviously, never followed the the rivalry at all. But you know, it was it's funny. People get real serious. It's awesome. You're you're also serious about your pet. I am my boy here and said that he was having a little separation anxiety is that right porter the dog he he is on Instagram. Yes. My dog has an Instagram and the first thing that people say is oh my God really in and they look at it. And they realize he has fifty three thousand followers up never mind. Okay. Understood. But he's German shepherd, and he is way too smart for zone. Good. He was getting out of his kennel. So I had to put him in this the kennel that looks like he's imprisoned. I can task picture. He loves it. Thank god. But he looks like he's in prison. How how's his demeanor is he oh, he's if he was here now he'd be laying in the floor. He's super chill and a Christmas present for my little sister. Oh, that's a good story. So my mom was terrified because she knew it was gonna go to as I was going gonna be really happy that had a dog or I was going to be really ticked off that somebody bought me a dog and. My sister new I've always wanted to German shepherds and found a German shepherd, and that's what I got for Christmas reaction when you open it. Oh, all right. Hi, did you guess you didn't open box, right. Loss or anything you can poke holes in the side. No appeal. Yeah. Yeah. Had it. She cheviot. She got the dog tag made and open that. And then with the name if it was a photo. Yeah. Says she named it. Yeah. I love it. She actually went to my friends and had one of my friends go. What would you name him house like probably name importer? And so that's did like super super detective work. She she one Christmas. So at at my mom was not having my mom gave me something really, really. And then my sister came over the top of the dog is like Trump card. So it was it's been awesome. He's he super Cole. He loves being on the road loves the bus. They. Yeah. He he did not like being in the kennel on the bus. He hated that. He was getting out. He get out in about twenty seconds. That's a super intelligent animal, and that's going to be fun to see what he continues to chew through. Oh god. I hope not. He did eat. He ate the first time. He got out at the house and got loose. It scared me to death because I came back at like two in the morning. I just walked him about three hours before. And I was out with some friends got home, and you know, the lights are off. And I opened the door this animal when I'm like, oh, what what no, oh, you're in trouble like terrified, angry really fast, and I walked in the house, and there's just, you know, boxes torn up, and I posted a photo and all of the Philly in Washington and New York fans on my Instagram noticed that he ate a Cowboys being they're like, well, guess allegiance does not Dallas. He sending a message. He was up. No. They hadn't won anything since I've been alive as your eight months old down. That is funny. How you know how they do that to get attention from their owners..

"I actually ran from a meeting that I was having with the head of my label. I got up and left like at the last possible second guess, he gets which straight to the house, and like grabbed a box full of all the draft board and everything ran up the street to where we were meeting. Got everything put up, but I've got a lot of really cool friends in that group of people, and they are all very competitive in. It's just a lot of fun and I'm in a couple of other leagues. But those are just kind of casual ones it's like in it just to have that on my phone and be able to look at it. But the one that I'm a Commissioner of is the big and that's the penalty league to if you lose our league, something bad happens. Like what that's. This year this year, we said, no, no, no, this is this is much worse. This year we had decided that whoever lost had to wear robber. And so a girl one this year. Awesome lost. Okay. We're like it needs to have the winners face on it. And so a mandate amino who's the one of our league, huge huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. And so, you know, she had the shirt made up and she's wearing a crown. She fed, you know, whole number one and we've printed off and. The loser. This girl named Shelby. And she thought that was going to be it. She was just gotta wear Robbins gonna have Amandus face on and. That was not the case. I kind of went to my Taylor. This custom. He said what is it for I told him, and he goes, oh my God. Absolutely. So he found she's a bears fan. And so she did not see it until draft night. Which is when she had to wear it. And it was said the following a Green Bay jersey. Oh, my gosh that he hid cut. He found some fabric that he had made like a Grinch Halloween costume four. So he made the short set of that. So it looked like turf. And then it kind of it was all connected is our offer he made it, and it was so awesome. I could not have been like the look on her face that was that was going to ask what was her reaction and her boyfriend was there, and he he's also I think he was more mad about it than I she was your bears fan. There's nothing you hate more than Green Bay, right? There was awesome. Awesome. I don't know what the penalty is for next year. We've talked about changing it. But obviously if if we're not afraid to do that. I really don't wanna leave. How do you pay attention to what's happening during games? Like if you've got a show or if there's something that you've got to get done. What is your method of keeping up and how dedicated are you to that? If it's a Cowboys game. I I will have our monitor guide like give us updates throughout the show. I won't. I haven't gone as far, I know. Darius Rucker who is a huge fan huge South Carolina fan. He actually had like when they were in the final four, whatever he had a show at the time one of the games. And so he like put it. Head new onstage out of going that far then they get away with it easier. They might throw things at me. But I do I will go pretty far to get updates and other than that. We're finding TV I'll pull the bus over if we're travelling home. I'm like, Nope. No pullover. And now we need to watch this game. Dale Earnhardt, jR, told me once that he he would get updates in his ear his crew chief for Redskins games because his team to but they all knew to care for your friends with.

"Your shows. Where would you say you are right now in your career describing how you described where? Okay. You know, since the word that people hate to hear in in sports ever describing players elite is then there's the huge argument about who that is. Tear quarterback or you. That's a great. Yes. Is great. I'm probably if I'm being completely bluntly, honest, you know. No, I can sell out of tickets and had a lot of hits. But still like almost there at say like top of tier two so not I'm not the elite like the top five QB. I'm trying to get there. That's really interesting. So who who did you consider on the top two of quarterbacks top-to-toe top top to? Jason L dean agai parentally every year just about he's either in the conversation or he wins entertainer. I mean that to me is like this is the time. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's we're working on getting their top. And then top tier of quarterbacks would obviously be Tom Brady it Lowy Aaron Rodgers. Yeah. I think the second tier of quarterbacks is always where it's a little interesting 'cause toggle ING and there's such a range there too. You know, if you go from the top to the bottom. I think you find that in everything, but that quarterback conversations always fun to have people because they're like the Homer ISM comes out strong. There's like somebody in the room from Boston. They're like, well, let me tell you about Tom Brady. And it's like, no, he's he's really good. And he is very very smart. And he is also, you know, at some point. The end looms. Right. But I mean, it's hard to believe that that's ever really going to happen with him. I know he's a few. But it it'll happen. I was undefeated. So you find a way to be the Commissioner of your football league fantasy football league. Despite all you have going on. How do you do that? How do you find time?.

"Dreamed of playing in the Braves stadium, and there I am playing music in it. And that's something as a kid outta never dreamed of that. So it's it's funny how things work out. But I think, you know, you're you end up where you're supposed to be. And you you find what you love. And for me, you know, music took over that. You know, I love music like I did sports as a kid. I still have sports, but nothing makes me feel like like music passed so. Wow. And it is interesting. When you talk about how similar they are. And it's like, you don't really realize that until you say it out loud. What what was that? Moment like for you. When you describe playing Turner field and thinking about that and thinking about your dad and for I know your fans. No storyline for those. That don't you know, your dad and thirteen is that right? Yeah. Is is just it was Labor Day two thousand thirteen that was just a, you know on the craziest times in my life. I'd just gotten my record deal. You know, he he knew that dream have been, you know, chases stream, and he was so happy, and that you know, you gotta look at the positive and it's been five years now. And you know, I've met people that you ought to hear the stories I've heard just from other people. So I know that if he had known that going lower early and me me writing a song that would help so many he would have been would have been cool that but going back to you know, play in Turner field. That's just one of those moments that I know everybody has and it doesn't matter if you're in business or what you're doing. We all have those moments where you wish somebody could be there with you and the ones. That you know, kinda got you there the that would appreciate it. So you know for me to play that play that song there. It was just a one of those bittersweet moment. I wish he was there. But there's a lot of people out there that are going through the same thing. And I think, you know, getting to do what I do I get to put myself out there, and let them know that. Hi, I'm just like to have fun up here. But also, you know been through stuff as well. And I get to share that through my music, that's kind of how let people know that I have been through some of the same stuff. So Turner fields one of the probably my favorite venues I'll ever play just because of the history and what the emotional. You know, attachments. I have to to watching the Braves and getting into play music there. So I I think it was a quote in a magazine that you had said something about you came here to Nashville, right? That song is that is something that I realize I didn't know that obviously. When I moved wish I always say, I was showed never had to write it. But I don't know if I feel like that anymore. I'm glad. I think going by defining the positive in things. I mean, Josh I don't have a show now where I don't meet somebody every single night that doesn't tell me there. You should be your story, or you know, we've got a new one on the on the new I'm called dad's number that specialist. Just kind of those songs that those are the kind of songs that help people. And you know, that's what I wanna do. I've been a fan. I think that's a blessing to me is to grow up as a fan of sports and music because now I'm on the other side of that in a way that music especially in. I know what it done if somebody would have stopped and taking a picture, you know, tweet if we'd had Twitter tweeted me back. You know, somebody on there. It's just little things like that. I think being a fan it made me appreciate now is if I could ever do that I'm going to do that. And that's to me. That's a big part of is. You know, if I if somebody had made me feel that way about playing sports if grown up del Murphy fan or Randy Travis those were the two people as a kid that I thought hung the moon. So wow. Yeah. It's going back. You know, baseball, sports and music is just huge huge part of Mullah. You know?.

"How are you introduced to them in general? Was it a family thing? Some of my favorite members were watching baseball with my dad. I love always loved football growing up going to Georgia Southern games. But baseball that was that's what I played from the time. I could walk in swing was baseball. But played so much that I kind of got burnt out didn't play my middle school years then came back played in high school. But as a kid, I mean, especially, you know, back in the nineties, the Braves were unbelievable people over this country now that so. Yeah. Growing up that was the only team around where that we could watch just because they were on TV s or whatever. And that's to me. I mean, that's cool. But me live in Georgia didn't really realize that they were on every night. No matter what. And we were used breads fans and a lot of my favorite memories of my dad are, you know, get into watch those years where you know, we were so good the. Raves were unbelievable. And just those kind of memories. I mean, that's what makes them special because you know, we've hadn't been that. Good sense. But it's. This year's been amazing. So it's just going back to sports I loved it. All I really did basketball's a big basketball fan football. But I I guess I'd have to pick baseball as a kid. You know, now, I love it all about the same. Did you remember yourself getting nervous ever playing baseball? Like you mentioned before that first show. Good. Yeah. In high school. I mean, I remember. Yeah. Just being on deck knowing that. Hey, you don't wanna bit? You're going to be the last out or you're going to be what you don't wanna be that guy that strikes that last whatever just that kind of feeling or or even before the game just that, you know, wanting to do I remember, I think, you know, when you're nervous, I think that just means you care, and you won't to perform the best you can whether that's on stage on the field. And you know, just now have met some athletes that, you know, I'm huge fan of to know that you know, our stores are somewhat similar how we got there. Just I don't know. I I love I mean, I think sports, you know, now if you to tell me as a kid that there's going to be a baseball player walk in up to one of my songs, you know, her welcome. I mean, that's. Yes. Just not even you don't even think they're going to ever cross paths. But you know, I have dreamed of being in the major leagues as a kid and closes out ever get I got to play. I got to play Turner field before one of the last years. It was just, you know, one of the coolest after you know, after the game I got to play the show, and it was one of those you should be here moments. My dad, I know he was smiling down that was something that, you know. I'll never forget. And that's that's what I'm saying you always.
