Passenger's Diary On The Road

Mike (Passenger) decided to make some kind of diary from his tour in the USA.
Here's my most favourite part of his comment on FB:
six or seven years ago i came to nashville for the first time to do some writing with people . it was good fun and a great learning experience but also a bit of a weird time as i didn’t really know any one so i found myself with time to kill .
i wanted to take advantage of being in nashville and so one (really really ) hot day i grabbed my guitar and decided that my mission was to meet john prine and play him some songs …. whether he liked it or not … god that sounds really creepy …..
i made several school boy errors . i didn’t bring a map or any sun block and i had completely underestimated the walk . i ended up spending the best part of three hours wandering around and getting very lost on music row .
when i finally turned up at john prines record label i was a sweaty and sunburnt mess but elated that i’d finally made it . i pressed the buzzer and to my disappointment found out that john was in chicago .
i still hope that i can one day meet john but for now this will have to do .

Anyway, he is going to keep posting covers of songs that are somehow related to the places he visits, enjoy 'Angel from Montgomery' feat. Stu Larsen, The Once

I am glad he shared with us the story, I don't think I can look up to him even more.
I loved it and cannot wait for another music video like this
