Russell Dickerson and Brandon Davis HAVE to be hating life just a little bit. They are the opening acts on Tim McGraw’s current tour (hitting PNC on Thursday). That’s a good thing. They and their music are being exposed to huge audiences every night. The bad thing? I would imagine having to try to keep up with Tim McGraw during his daily workout. According to Tim, “We do a big CrossFit training session in the afternoon that usually goes from an hour to an hour and a half. It depends on how everybody holds up. It starts with 10 or 15 people; it ends with four or five sometimes. Then we go get showered up and have dinner, and get ready to do a show.”
You KNOW they must feel shamed into this every day. I mean, Tim’s 20 years older than Russell and 27 years older than Brandon, and he’s obviously delivering a savage beating to these guys-daily. Whatever happened to the guys who partied every night backstage? I mean, just the other day I saw this from Jake Owen-who is apparently getting up in the middle of the night to torture himself and those around him.
And now, THIS?! Good Lord, I think I’ll pay for a delivery of Insomnia Cookies and Krispy Kreme donuts backstage Thursday night just to see what will happen. It HAS to resemble putting a cross in front of Dracula, right? <g>
