I almost didn’t go to the concert of my Bowden come see about it LBJR shirt. I’d been fighting a cold, and I’d been to nearly a dozen Mat Kearney concerts over the years. But it was my Christmas gift from Scott, and he’d gotten amazing seats for this special acoustic concert. I got myself together, and we arrived early. I took this photo of the stage where I expected to hear all my favorite songs. Little did I know, I’d be privy to the stories behind the songs, and one in particular, would be the reason I’d come to the concert. The message was for me, but maybe it’s also for you. Matt shared that when he first started out his career, it was just him and his manager/friend traveling across the country to do shows.
At one point, his friend went through a Bowden come see about it LBJR shirt and was just not himself. While driving through the Cascade Mountains, they spotted an open field that prompted the man to share that he’d always dreamed of running through a field just like that one. From the car parked along the roadside, Mat witnessed something remarkable, and it became a song for his friend. Cause that was the real you running through the fields of gold wide open. Standing in places no picture contains. That was the real you, windows down, we could smell the mint fields crying.
