Dear Chris August…

Chris August humors me, especially with his latest video detailing the behind the scenes shenanigans on the Redeemed Tour with Big Daddy Weave and Citizen Way.

Seriously, I was cracking up.  (Considering the day I’ve had, this was a real accomplishment.  Just saying!)

Maybe it’s just me, but it appears that there is a lot of camouflage, facial hair, throwback eyewear, and Dr. Pepper going around on the Redeemed Tour.  Kind of like Duck Dynasty set to music, minus the whole hunting thing, iced tea and Uncle Si.

Any which way you slice it, the Redeemed Tour looks like my kind of show! I’m now even more excited than ever to check out the Redeemed Tour at BlackHawk Ministries in Fort Wayne on Friday night at 7:30 pm.  If you’re in or around Fort Wayne, you should be there too!

Friday will be the first time I’ve seen Big Daddy Weave and, I think, Citizen Way in concert before.  (For some reason, I simultaneously think I have and have not seen Citizen Way before.  I’m pretty sure I haven’t, but then again, maybe I have.  Who knows?!)

The last time I saw Chris August was in December while he was out with tobyMac & Co. on the Hits Deep Tour in Toledo.  I attended well over 100 concerts last year, and if I had one award to give out for the 2012 ‘Fashion Statement of the Year’ it hands down would have gone to Chris August.  Seriously, while a good majority of the guys I saw on tour last year were wearing skinny jeans and/or rolled up pants with boat shoes, t-shirts and beanies (for the record, NO ONE looks good in rolled up pants and boat shoes!), Chris August was rocking a pair of camouflage cargo pants and a bedazzled denim vest.

Yes, you read that correctly,

Camo cargo pants and a bedazzled denim vest.

As I twittered the night of the Hits Deep Tour, “Haven’t seen that look rock a stage since my Dad took me to see Poison in the ’90’s.  Another reason to love Chris August!”

Indeed.

Unfortunately, Chris does not discuss his stylist (or lack thereof) in his latest video, but you should still check out the video because it’s funny in an eccentric, goofball kind of way.  Then, check back here next week for full details on the Redeemed Tour (and to find out if the bejeweled denim vest makes its return to the stage!)
