Nashville Trip

Last month Zach and I got the opportunity to go to Nashville to record a music video for his new song "Say Goodbye Slow",  you can listen to it at It was soooo neat! There was hair and make up and a wardrobe team. Zach did great of course... he's a natural. 

Julia Arnold was the girl hired for Zach's video. We hit it off great! Not only is Julia a cutie, she is super sweet and definitely knows what it's like to be married to a musician. Her husband is the lead singer in the band Anberlin and he was touring in Australia during the video shoot (I thought I had it rough). She was flying to Japan the next week to meet him for his tour. Jason Epperson was the director for the video and he was very creative. Jason was on the reality show "On the Lot". It was such a great experience. They shot for 12 hours for a 3 and a half minute song...I can't imagine what it's like to shoot a movie!
This is me, Melissa, and Mrs. Ingrid. Melissa is married to Dave Wilson who is one of Zach's good friends and has started a label in Nashville. They are working on pushing Zach's music in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, and Florida.
This is Jason and Zach looking through the clothes to choose different looks for the video. There were several locations including an unbelievable house that had an elevator in it. It was wild!
We finally made it to Nashville...This was an adventure in itself. First of all, Zach played a show in Eureka Springs Saturday night and did not get home until 2:30 and we had to get up at 3:30 to catch a plane in Tulsa at 6:20. We got to the check in and Zach had forgotten his wallet in the car so he had to run all the way back to the parking deck to get it...he was a bit frazzled. So we finally landed in Nashville at 10:45. They started shooting at noon and finished up at midnight...Then we had to wake up at 6 the next morning to catch our flight back to Tulsa and drive home to Fayetteville. We were exhausted!!
