It's not often, but it does happen.
The release of Rough Drafts: Stories To Drink To was a complete mess. But, when it finally came out the response from people was and continues to be immeasurable and overwhelming.
Not only did the album debut on the Apple Music Comedy Chart at #10, it moved up to #2 and stayed there for five freaking days.
That felt way too good.
In addition to that the kind words, emails, messages, and posts from anyone who listened has not only been so wonderful it makes my cold heart warm it also is the entire reason I write these stories. My hope is to always leave the listener with something to take with them. A laugh, a cry, or a desire to eat pickles. Whatever it is it means something to me.
Pretentious? You bet your ass.
Thank you everyone who made this album possible, and to those who have and continue to share it. Your support has meant everything.
NOW GO TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO BUY IT!!
