Twitter Profile For The Band

We finally got around to making a Twitter profile for the band. If you're a tweeting kind of guy/gal make sure to follow @CHDband. We'll be updating the followers on all things us. Upcoming gigs, strange blurry pictures, inner thoughts, favorite ice cream flavor, and everything else that pops into our mind while out and about. Should be fun.

In other news, we are still in the pre-production phase of the new album. We wrote a new song last week during our practice sessions. It's technically the best song we've written and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that the entire band was there to compose it. Cody slapped some words on top and it was done. Next Song!

Old News Is The New News. Crude Fest, Deana Carter, and Our New Album

I'm really just posting out of habit today, and have little to share that hasn't already been said. So...let's recap.

Our band, The Cody Hughes Davidson Band, is going into the studio for our second album. We begin song prepping, writing, tweaking, and arguing next week. We start recording in June. I am really excited about this.

The second half of this month is going to be really hectic with shows. For example, one weekend we're playing the first annual Crude Fest in Greenwood,TX in a harsh early afternoon opener slot. Once we're done getting a nice sunburn we pack up and run to Brownwood,TX to headline at Uncle Dave's Roadhouse later that night. We finish that show, go to sleep, wake up, drive to Midland, and open for Deana Carter (Strawberry Wine) at The American Cancer Society Round Up. I'm really thankful that we're amping up our gig schedule with some very cool shows. We get to meet some bigger names and we're spreading our music outside of the same four bars we used to hit on heavy rotation. I could use more sleep though, just saying.

I go my new microphone in the mail and had a jam session with Cody yesterday. There was a huge improvement in tone and I'm no longer chained to a mic stand for our shows. The bells and whistles on this thing are outrageous and I really can't wait to play with it on stage.

Other than that, I'm enjoying my three day weekend off of work and gigs. I've molded a fine butt groove in the couch and caught up with my reading, napping, t.v. watching, and writing. Now I think it's time for a beer. See you soon.
