happy halloween

so this year for halloween, I'm supposed to go to a costume party. I am very stressed out about this. this is because I don't have any costumes. why can't I just go like me? why do I have to put on a cape (brooke wore a cape last night, by the way). I have been talking about my costume party anxiety for weeks now. other people always have great costumes. they look sexy, hilarious, they stay in character all night, they howl at the moon, they eat babies. it's fabulous. me? I got nothing.

and to make matters worse, brooke is making me go to a cage fight tonight. that's right, a cage fight. what is wrong with my wife?

tomorrow, I'm going to mississippi.

does anybody care less about the presidential election than me?

I think on november whatever the day is, I'm going to vote for my new dog, zed. he's quiet, sentimental, and very eager to learn.

yes, I said sentimental. zed is very sentimental.

by the way, zed is about 9 weeks old, and he is a pit bull, and he needs a friend ASAP. anybody have any puppies they want to let me know about? I want this guy to be socialized.

I just got back from italy. Brooke and I were there for two weeks, mostly in the piedmont region (northern italy, near france). it was a nice trip. we ate a lot of food. we visited a lot of really small towns. I communicated with a lot of people who did not speak english. I took a few photographs.

Christmas Record available for pre-order

the christmas record, which we have been working on for over a year, is finally finished. you can pre-order it now, and your cd will ship out once it arrives (expected oct. 13). there's so much I can say about this project that I kind of don't know where to start. I'll just say this: it's all ashley singing. and we stayed very true to traditional melodies and arrangements. the goal was to create a christmas record that we would actually want to listen to.

go here to listen

go here for ordering information

and mark your calendars: december 22 we're playing a christmas concert at workplay.

I have a new favorite activity. a 40-yard dash-duel. this is me and clint, after the gig in nashville, racing in the parking lot. notice irwin with his outspread arms, waiting to determine the winner.
