Found out about Iron & Wine from a girl at Alabama Outfitters in 2008. She kept saying "you can't miss it, promise me you won't miss it." Of course I missed it. It was an epic festival; so many great bands. I redeemed myself though at the Ryman when they played. I think Sam and his band are extremely talented, of course. Been to four music festivals and will be working this years Bonnaroo. This tops my expectations in the amount of these festivals I thought I would see in my lifetime. So lucky. I'm 27 and into about anything outdoors except canoeing. never had a good experience on a canoe. Not one.
