Today was going to be the perfect kind of Sunday. I met up with a friend for brunch in the morning and then I made my way home where I promptly put on my pi’s, crawled back into bed and settled in for a day of writing and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Perfection. Then one of the girls who is staying with me this weekend for ACL Festival, came in and asked, “Hey, is it cool if the guitar player from The Head And The Heart comes over for brunch?”
So I spent my afternoon in my living room with my two delightfully hipstery houseguests and Josiah Johnson eating eggs and talking about music and life. It was only slightly awkward when we were introducing ourselves to each other and I said, “yeah, it’s super nice to meet you. I’ve actually photographed you on a number of occasions” (because in my other life, I am also a music blogger).
He was super cool and genuine and the best part of the whole thing is that he indulged us with a killer jam session. We sang and played and I thought I might all but burst for the pure joy of it all. Because loudly belting out and harmonizing along to Down In the Valley with awesome friends and musicians in my living room with the windows open and a fall breeze blowing through IS euphoria. Cooper even decided to get in on the action. And killed it!
