It’s me again pondering the slim slice of optimism that I hold on to hoping I have somehow made it on to the nice list for this year.
You will be pleased to know that I am not requesting a portable communication device this year as due to losing 2 and breaking a third mobile phone in 2019, I have recently acquired a new one. You over delivered last year on Spurs so as long as we can have a top four finish this season I will be delighted as I am more than happy with our early gift of Jose Mourinho as our manager. However if you could sort out a playoff win at the very least for the Cowboys that would be awesome however if you have enough magic to bring us a Superbowl win that what we really are looking for!
Musically well it’s all about new records from Ashley McBryde, Kelsea Ballerini and my buddies Lanco on the top level so make them as awesome as we hope they will be please. Then there are a few debut records we are excited about so please please please let people absolutely fall in love with Caylee Hammack and Tenille Townes when their albums drop.
UK touring wise you delivered last year as more and more people want to come and visit our little island so I guess I we would like you to sort out some plane tickets for Lanco, Fairground Saints, Kelsea and Dierks to come back and see us please! Then more importantly we would love for Clare Dunn, Candi Carpenter, Kalie Shorr and Gone West (because it has been far far too long since we last saw Colbie in London so would be amazing for her to come back with the band) at the top of my list to play some UK shows please.
Also still waiting on that Haim record and a London show (also a OneRepublic show I can get tickets for would be awesome) but hopefully we can get a tour around the Latitude headlining.
Finally things are a struggle for a lot of people right now so above all I just hope we can be kind to one another and that we are not scared to give people a hand up if they really need it where life is testing us.
Until next year, Merry Christmas. Don’t get too bloated on those mince pies and seriously you must be bored shitless of sherry right now so if you can arrange for White Claw to be available in the UK ASAP I can leave some out for you next year instead (assuming I don’t drink them all first).
