Accidents, Recovery, and Getting Back on the Horse

Doug here. It has been one hell of a year so far. It seems like I've spent more time in hospitals this year than in the last twenty combined. Some of that was for family members, and thankfully everyone is doing well. Some of it, though, has also been for myself. I had a mountain bike wreck that resulted in shoulder surgery. We were in a car accident that totaled our car, and we are still dealing with the repercussions of that. Fortunately, it wasn't our fault, but it's been a stressful time for sure. That's been going on while my shoulder is still on the mend, but I have healed enough to play guitar again, so shows will start being added asap. Looking forward to playing as much as possible for the rest of the year, especially since I won't be coaching football again this fall. Trail of the Lonesome's new songs are still coming along, but all the drama this year has put us behind schedule as far as recording and playing live are concerned. I've heard it said many times that if one falls off a horse the most important thing for them to do is get back on that horse and ride. Here's to the upcoming ride!

See What Had Happened Was...

Wow, it's been entirely too long. Hope everyone is doing well. We have been calling Brevard, NC home since August, and it's been great but super busy. Nevertheless, we have been writing some new songs, and we are currently recording some home demos with our eyes on studios to get a new full length done by the end of the year. We are going to be hitting stages again very soon to kick the tires on the new tunes. We're very excited to perform again for our friends old and new, so keep an eye out on here and our social media as we start adding dates to the calendar. Stay well everyone and we will see you soon!
