So, we’re very, very excited,” he said at the time. “It almost doesn’t feel real, but here we are…[2020’s] given us a chance to kind of concentrate on this and not be exhausted from the road and all that kind of stuff… Hell yeah, it gave is a chance to really try and Hallelujah, thank the Lord it worked out.”
