Day two brought us to Chad's Records in Chattanooga, TN.

With temperatures in the low thirties, we hit the streets in downtown Chattanooga early on Monday morning. Our in-store appearance at Chad's Records wasn't scheduled until 7PM so Brent, Jesse, Steve and I wanted to take advantage of having a full day in which to simply chill (literally) and to take in the sights of a city that is rich in culture and history. Here are just a few hightlights...

on earth. Run by Helene Grzybowski, it's a thriving, family-owned operation.
The original Hixson, TN location opened in 2011 and the new shop in Chattanooga opened
just last week.
FYI, the Strawberry Shortcake cupcake at
Chattanooga's Cupcake Kitchen is a delicious
gift from God.
As late afternoon approached, we headed back to our hotel to prep for the book signing at Chad's. Brent and I both spent considerable time during our teenage years hanging out at our local record shops — back when they were truly record shops. I've visited countless used record shops around the country over the years, and per square foot, there is more treasure under Chad's roof than any place I've been. Brent and I were like little kids in a candy store at Chad's and we both had an amazing time meeting, greeting, sharing stories, making new friends and of course, shopping.

We had an absolutely fabulous time in Chattanooga, and personally, I can't wait to come back. But for now, it's off to our next tour stop — Tuesday night at The Hummingbird in Macon, Georgia. It ought to be fun. STAY TUNED!
