What musician or singer are most excited to play with or for?

Whenever I have the opportunity to play alongside the many amazing musicians that can be found in Nashville, it’s a good day.  But, in all honesty, being out with and Danny and the band has been the most rewarding.  I’m always learning something new from the guys!! And I get to point people to Christ while I am doing what I love!! What more can I ask for?
