My Aunt Kathy sent us a box of leaves that she collected and preserved in wax so that we could get a taste of that famous New England fall that I grew up with. Now that’s love.

From our car ride yesterday morning. This is how Abi takes in the world. She is my teacher.
You guys sent in so many great songs that I thought it would be fun to put them together into one big nostalgic playlist. It has some of my favorites that were playing on our living room stereo as a kid, as well as several submitted by you. Check out Secondhand Smoke: The Playlist at the link in my bio. And let us know if we should add any more in the comments👇👇 #secondhandsmoke
'Teach Your Children Well' was often playing on our living room stereo when I was growing up. It’s the song I would listen to to learn how to finger pick on my guitar. What's a song that takes you back in time whenever you hear it? #secondhandsmoke
So many stories. Listen to the song at the #linkinbio. #SecondhandSmoke

Day 1 of 2 in the books with the man @drewholcombmusic at my crib writing some tunes.
Cousins studio hang.
Thank you @bmi for this “first #1” guitar. When I was growing up, my first big boy guitar was a Taylor and sounded eerily similar to this one. Having a bit of a full circle moment & falling back in love with this open C tuning.
Big day in the McConnell house. 6 years home.
Thank you @brettyoungmusic for getting me up on your special night. You’re a class act. It was a real honor. Congrats on your sold out night at the Ryman.
Last night at the industry #1 party for “Mercy” with @brettyoungmusic .
First time for everything. Song three of my set the wind and rain came in sideways, soaked me to the bone, and knocked down half the lights and gear. I was told to cut it:) Sorry Des Moines. Wish I could have played more for you. Rock and Roll 🤘🏼
Ouch. Coming at you early mañana @eliyoungband & @maxwell_shafer . Looking forward to joining you lads for a few shows.
I am packing for my week of shows that I’m leaving for tomorrow and I turned to a page in my lyric notebook that had this drawing preserved in it. @madalynillustration gifted me this amazing piece after she sketched it while we were both on the road with the @thewoodbros . Today, on the the anniversary of Tom Petty’s death, it basically fell into my hands. I wouldn’t make this up for an Instagram post. It happened. There’s a lot more to life than we can see. Cheers to one of the greatest and coolest cats that ever walked this rock. And thank you Madalyn for this treasure.
