I had actually gotten to the venue way, way early at around 4:15 because I left work early and had to drive about 72 miles up from Munfordville, Kentucky and knew there was on-going road work between Elizabethtown and Louisville that I didn't want to get unlucky and be in a non-moving traffic jam (this had happened to me on this same stretch of road before a few weeks ago). The traffic was good, so I got there very early. Zanzabar opens at 5:00, so I went in to get the booth seating right before the performance area entrance and got some food. Carl and Tyler came out right in front of me to get themselves some food and a drink, so I said hello to them. They recognized me from the previous tour where I got to the venues early to get a poster signed and talked with them in Lexington, Cincinnati, and at the final performance in Franklin, Tennessee where they are playing tonight. We talked for a few minutes, and when they were about to go back in with their drinks, I stopped them again and asked if I could get a picture of us together (I'll try to upload it here later). Also, I had gone to many, many Carl shows in the past several years from 2016 to now, and had gone out of my way to say hello, get stuff signed, get a picture, etc. I even gave Carl a vinyl album of Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane called "Rough Mix" that I had bought in college in 1985 because Carl mentions Ronnie Lane in a couple of different songs of his. He loved getting that record the last time I saw him at Headliners in 2018. Those are probably the reasons he picked me out to jam out to/with. However, with all that being said (as the saying goes), I do believe that I was a mere substitute for Erica Moore. If she had been there on the front row, she would have been the lucky one. I've even seen Carl move a monitor out of the way just so he could jam out right above where she was standing (one of the Burl shows in Lexington, I believe). So yeah, it was super special, and it really topped off a fantastic night.

I hope you're going better, and same for your mom.And I'm totalllllllly jealous of 15 Carl shows. I've only seen two (his OBH set was sooooo good, it's criminal the full set hasn't been released). Hoping for a live album from the Carl & Tyler shows.
