Concert | Kris Allen plays drive in concert in Nashville, June 3, 2020 and KAL catch-up

Kris Allen's former tour manager and good friend Sean aka Big Daddy has been doing a series of drive-in concerts in Nashville this week (as covered by this article in Rolling Stone Country). Kris is playing the one on May 31

UPDATE: Due to a curfew imposed in Nashville, the show was postponed until June 3. Kris gave an impassioned speech about current times in addition to performing. Check out the video below at the 53 minute mark.

Also, just need to do a little catch-up. As we know, these are historic and scary times, with many changes. I hope all of my readers are well and safe. 

On a personal note, I have taken on a new and much more demanding job in the last month. It's a fantastic professional opportunity, but one month in, I can tell it is going to to cut into the time I spend on this blog and following Kris in general. So that's why I'm not tweeting as much and why I haven't had time to do a post about the rescheduled dates for the European tour or the Thursday night livestreams replaying his albums in full that he's been doing on his Instagram live account (you can find the ones he has saved here).  I'm thinking through the best way to retool KAL to reflect the time I've got available to spend on it (not much) while still being a great place for fans to catch up.

Livestream | Kris Allen plays Letting You In and a new song for fans, March 18, 2020

Hope all of you are healthy, washing your hands and staying safe! Kris Allen is self-isolating just like the rest of us in these times of COVID-19. Of course, on March 18, 2016, one of his best albums, Letting You In, was released. And to celebrate, and raise money for his team who is not working at the moment, Kris threw a livestream show on Instagram on March 18, 2020.

If you missed it, you missed a fun party! A highlight for me was seeing Kris' bandmates and former bandmates in the chat, including Torres, Cale (who was hilarious), Devon, and Brad.

Also awesome: Kris sang his new song called Mr. Right Next Door, about an older neighbor who passed away. For those who enjoyed it, and those who missed it, @Shazamy had your back and grabbed the audio of the new song! You can download it here.

I'll be honest, it's been so quiet on the Kris front that I forgot he had scheduled this joint show with friend and fellow singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin. If you are a Kris fan and not familiar with Jon's music, check him out and I think you'll like it.

The two played a house show at Buddy's Place Nashville last night and luckily for all of us Annie (@ameeliu) was there! Kris premiered a new song called Mr. Right Next Door. (You can hear that song in my March 19 post.) Media after the break...
