First and foremost, thank you to everyone who donated to our Kickstarter. Special thanks to Bob and Jennie Worth, Todd Geeding, and Mark Klusmann and Debbie Seaton. This record could not have happened without you. James Treichler and Beau Sorenson, thank for sharing your talents, your ideas, and for helping us realize our vision. To everyone who performed with us, your contribution cannot be overstated. You changed these songs and this band for the better. As always, thank you to our families and friends for your unwavering support.
