We had a great tour out to the East Coast (Nashville, Knoxville, Columbus, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Oxford, Johnson City) and following trip to the beautiful Joshua Tree area of California. Great times were had and we met a lot of great people (and dogs). I had been noticing a raspy quality in my voice for some months, and got it checked out as soon as I got back to Austin. The ENT doctor put a scope down my throat and said, "yup. You have vocal nodules." These are like little calluses on the vocal chords. They are pretty serious, but go away on their own if properly taken care of. (Learn more) Like any muscle injury, rest is essential. Unfortunately I have had to cancel all dates from June 16th to June 26th. Please stay posted for further developments.
Thank you and God bless.
