It means performing gigs on the weekends, returning home for the week. That is the lifestyle for those that have regular 9-5 jobs back home.
For us, it means packing Thursday night, leaving as soon as I get home from work Friday, getting to Georgia between 12:30 and 2 at night, and driving home Saturday after the show. We sleep it off in the comfort of our own bed Saturday night, well into Sunday, so we can regain sanity for the week ahead.
It’s not an easy life, but I can’t think of anything I would rather do than take road trips with my wife every weekend. I love the great shows and the uninterrupted time with my wife. Music. Love. Long stretch of pavement in front of us.
