Also a big thank you to everybody who bought our new record and t-shirts. We had to make a reorder this morning from our friends at CustomInk for our new shirt design and that's all because of you guys!
This morning we are ranked on www.reverbnation.com/theweedrags as being #1 on the bluegrass charts in Pittsburgh and #52 in the Nation. I'm not sure how the ranking works but thank you none the less!
