Andrew Landers has spent 2 decades playing his narrative in the unsung Americana Folk genre, a colorful brainy singer songwriter who has shared the stage with a myriad of national artists. His music has been heard all over the United States, Europe, Africa and Latin America. With 11 records to his name, he is the epitome of a modern day traveling corduroy storytelling troubadour changing the world one song at a time.

So musicians and airplanes don't have the greatest track record.

Richie Valens. Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie VanZant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines. Buddy Holly.

So we are experiencing some pretty swag turbulence on this here Boeing 737. Traveling 608 mph at this very moment and at an altitude of 37,000 ft. In the isle seat of my row is a gentleman in a super loud Hawaiian shirt who obviously is terrified to fly. He is closing his eyes, with his hands white-knuckled clinched to his arm rest most likely praying that we don't limp away from this. In the middle next to me is a middle aged woman name Sherry who has 2 kids and doesn't like her husband. I kid you not... everytime it gets super bumpy she freakin screams like she's accidentally dropped her baby over a bridge. This is where it gets funny. So I'm in the window seat just chilling with my headphones on listening to music and playing on FB. I randomly come across this old video and started watching it when psycho Sherry asked... "is that you?" I said "yep" She then said "What song are you singing?" I said "Free Falling" to which unhinged Sherry says... "Free Falling! That doesn't feel very appropriate in all this turbulence." LOL!!!!!! She is still freaking out! I am getting a tad nauseous so I am going to draw this to a close. Enjoy the video. And by the way... those musicians listed above, were legends. I think I'll be just fine... it's crazy Sherry that I should worry about. 

P.S. They flight attendant just came by and served me communion. My little cup of wine and 6 pretzels.
