Amy Grant Nelson

On Friday Night we played main stage at the Creation East music festival. It was one of the best days I've had since joining Hawk Nelson. We played our HN set, and it was one of the funnest festival sets we've ever done... but the fun wasn't over!

A few hours later, we came back on stage, and performed a 5 songs with Amy Grant! This was our set list:

Lead Me On
Love of Another Kind
Takes a Little Time
If These Walls Could Speak
One Little Miracle

The last song was a song of ours that Amy was kind enough to sing on for the special edition of our record, "Hawk Nelson is my friend".

I can sincerely say that being on stage, as a part of Amy Grant's band, was one of the highlights of my career so far. The band consisted of Justin, Daniel, and I (drums, bass, and guitar for Hawk), along with Will Owesley on lead guitar, and Bryan Ward on keys. Will and Brian are excellent musicians, and it was so fun to be a part of something that felt so professional! Russ Long worked the front of house console, and Daniel Smallbone put together a killer light show.

I'm hoping to have some pictures or video to post on here quite soon... There were plenty of cameras around, so it's only a matter of time!
