One thing about being a traveling musician, I’ll undoubtedly have an all night or super late night drive now and then. Our gig last night wasn’t too bad. We got home around 2:30. The worst was when I moved back to North Carolina but I kept all of my Georgia gigs going for a while. We would play them, drive home and get in bed around nine or ten the next morning. That doesn’t make for a productive day.
I don’t do that quite as much anymore, mainly because I play different types of gigs these days. Today’s song has an old school feel to it and is about exactly that. Counting the hours until I get back home.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
