When I hear the praises start....
This week I was able to pay respect to one of my favorite people of all time, Keith Green. As far back as I can remember I have known his music. For those of you who are not familiar with Keith, check this out. He passed away with two of his children very tragically in July of 1982 in a plane crash (my dad actually was able to attend the funeral at the Last Days Ministries ranch). I was born in October of 1982 so my parents were very into their Keith Green records at the time. So like I said his music has very much been a soundtrack throughout my life growing up.
We played at Teen Mania headquarters in Garden Valley, TX on Tuesday, which used to be Last Days Ministries and the property that Keith and his Family lived on and where the plane crashed. Our friend Adam from Teen Mania took us to the cemetery a 1/2 mile away where Keith and his two children were buried. I know this is kind of weird and morbid, but it was a big deal for me to be there.
