Fundraiser - Mitchell, SD

The boys and I got to be a part of the Avera Queen of Peace Foundation fundraiser in Mitchell, SD. The foundation provides an opportunity for friends and supporters to share in the healthcare cost for their community so it was an honor to be up there and be a part of the night. 

While getting to share in a good ole fashioned 16 hour road trip, we were able to capture a little bit of audio from the performance, and a few pics, as well. 

Cool Music Mondays

Happy New Year friends. I'm excited for what the year will bring and hope to see you all out there this year. We've got some fun stuff coming up and one of those things is a Cool Music Monday's playlist on Spotify.

Lord willing the creek don't rise, each Monday in 2017, I'll add songs to the playlist with songs from our shows, requests we've gotten, or tunes that we just dig listening to. If you've been to a show, you know the set list is all over the place, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. And as always, feel free to shout out requests or just follow along. 

A Cool Christmas

This is always a fun time of year around the Cool household...generally pretty crazy...but fun.

One of our favorite things to do is listen to Christmas music and decorate the tree. And this year, James (our three year old) wouldn't stop asking us when he was going to get to see "Ho Ho Ho" and Caleb (our one year old) wouldn't stop pulling the ornaments off the tree. Good stuff. 

And since it's that time of year, I'm excited to announce that today we are relaunching A Cool Christmas, with updated artwork, for sale this month on the website. You can either stream it online or pick it up in the store. I hope it's a nice addition to your collection and hope you guys have a wonderful holiday season. 

Cedarwood Wedding - Nashville, TN

We've played a few events at Cedarwood but this was by far the best weather we'd had there. Seriously, a perfect fall day and it ended up being a great night too. Good food, lots of dancing, and the music was pretty good too :)

Way to be Cedarwood...way to be.

Party in Dodge, WI

A couple of weeks ago we were up in Dodge, WI and, while we were there, we were able to snap a few pics and get some audio. It was great getting to celebrate with the Bushman family and as you can tell from the photos, they go big in Dodge. 

Firewater Saloon - Chicago

Last week, the band and I made our first road trip to Chicago. We ran out of gas, got an inch of snow while we were there, and had a memorable late-night Denny's trip. Chicago, you're seriously one of our favorite cities and hope we can do it again soon!
