“At 8:31 pm central time yesterday I lost a person that was once my very best friend in the world. Riding around Memphis TN on skate boards in the middle of the night and being stupid. Writing songs. Talking about dreams. Our dream came true and we signed a record deal that would forever change our lives.

It was a roller coaster that turned best friends into business partners and boredom that turned business partners into reckless humans that made lots of bad choices. We had ALOT of fun at times but also a lot of drama. I’m sad we never got the chance to reconnect on any level. My prayers are with your family. Rest easy Jason Luttrell.”
