“I put Ray Wylie Hubbard on my CD player. And as I picked and sang along, it felt just like a prayer.” Long live Ray Wylie and Chris Wall.

Haha. Your self deprecating humor is one of the things I love about you. You are probably not forgetful and definitely forgotten! I’ll never forget seeing you and Lucas play in White Sulfur Springs, Montana. One of my favorite shows of all time. I hope you come back to Montana sometime. You are a true American treasure.
