“Dear friends, I am humbled at the thousand of emails, letters, and phone calls I have received since last week on the news of my condition. Words cannot express my deepest gratitude to all of you. I am back home getting my strength back (from Melanie’s good cooking) and I am looking forward to being at IBMA on Saturday. I can’t wait to play again and I am really looking forward to seeing many of you there. IBMA is a great event not only for the performers, but also for all the great fans that support us all year long. 2011 (because of you), I believe will be my best year ever.
May The Lord bless every one of you. Pray for the people having a hard time right now in our great country, and please remember our troops who are fighting to keep all of us free!”
