Florida, Texas Face the Long Road to Recovery
Having played many shows in Houston and Florida, I was shaken by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which devastated the American South. Early estimates pin storm damage by Irma alone at between $20 billion and $50 billion, and FEMA reports that a whopping 90 percent of homes in the Florida Keys suffered damage. It’s usually the end of a long national tour when my bus rolls into the Sunshine State. I have made a lot of fond memories there, and my heart, my prayers and my thoughts go out to all those affected.
