Loads of news!

Several new summer tour dates have been posted! Justin has new dates in New York, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Justin will also be playing next Tuesday, May 25, at The 5 Spot in Nashville to benefit Nashville Flood victims.

According to Jason Isbell's Twitter, Justin is going to be in the studio next week. Jason is going to be session work with him. I can't wait to hear it!

Justin recently joined the Music Saves Mountains campaign. The campaign's goal is to help spread awareness of mountaintop removal mining and bring it to an end.

In this press release from NRDC, Justin states:
"The great Woodie Guthrie, one of my musical influences, spoke the essential truth when he sang that this land belongs to you and me. That's true for the Appalachian. We can't allow coal companies to continue tearing down our mountains and tearing up our American heritage. It's time we stop this purple mountain travesty. I'm happy to be part of that solution."
