It’s Friday the 13th and we thought it would be fun to ask a few artists if they have any rituals or superstitions when it comes to performing…
I put my red boots on stage. If they’re gone or their backwards (ie left and right foot is switched) I SWEAR something goes wrong. 🙂
Superstitions….every time I see a black cat cross the road when driving I think about it, but I never stop and go a different direction. I do however have a superstition now thanks to my wife, I never put a hat on the bed. I don’t come home and throw my cap on the bed or after a show set my cowboy hat on the bed, not even on the bus. She made me believe there is some truth to putting a hat, shoes or a rifle on the bed and it bringing you bad luck.
Now, before every show or CD recording… I pray! I always get our guys to pray with me before we go on stage it’s the one thing I just have to do. If by chance I miss praying as a group and they get on stage before me, I will still spend that alone time for a few minutes with CHRIST. Same thing for when we hit the road and leave home or from a show, it’s the KEY!
Before I start a show…I always say a little something in my head to my Dad … just quietly to myself.
Just a silent few words of … “Hope you’re watching dad” kind of thing. Because in my heart I feel like he is. I’d give anything to have him at one more show.
