    You have to give credit where credit is due, that’s two games in a row that he’s made it real tough on us. He has a really good fastball and he throws a curveball for a strike when he wants to. He’s just a guy in a groove right now who’s doing what he wants on the mound.

    Last year was a big year of just me on the road, promoting my EP and doing that, and I kind of got away from the writing, the creating music process, which for the first five years before that I was always tuned in to writing, and really being connected to the process of that, and when I went back in to write, it was kind of nerve-wracking. It’s so bizarre, whenever you come back in. It’s a vulnerable process, and it was kind of nerve-wracking, but I feel like I’m getting back in the groove of it.
