“I’m excited for everyone to not only hear our first live recording the way you have been hearing fan favorites songs like ‘Patches,’ ‘Yes, I See God,’ and ‘I Should’ve Called’ the way we perform them live, but also to hear music from shows spanning 30 years with my different band configurations,” said Stephenson. “I’m also hoping people enjoy some of the songs they haven’t even heard us do before such as, ‘Rock of Ages,’ ‘Country Side of Heaven,’ and others. I’ve had the pleasure of making music with some of the best musicians out there and privileged to also call them FRIEND.”
