Jennifer Wayne and Caroline Cutbirth


     

   

Name: Jennifer Wayne

Age: 31
Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
Previous Seasons: Season 22
Current occupation: Songwriter
Describe what you do: I write music for country artists.
Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: We self-destructed with self-driving!
Most memorable moment from your first Race: There are so many fantastic memories, but the bog still gives me nightmares!
Favorite place you visited on your first season: Switzerland, Africa and Bora Bora.
Why do you want to run the Race again? It was the chance of a lifetime, so getting to travel around the world again with your best friend is priceless.
How have you changed since the last time you competed? I am much more grateful and thankful for seeing places I would never get to see otherwise. I am also closer than ever with Caroline.
What are you passionate about? I am passionate about traveling and am super competitive!
People would be surprised to learn: I can’t swim! I doggy paddle!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Self driving!
Pet peeve about your teammate: I’ve gotten so far past any pet peeves; being with her feels like I am hanging out with myself.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I want to go to India! I’ve always loved the art and the colors… It’s a dream for me.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I want to see more of the world and meet people I would have never otherwise met.
Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: No more giving all our info to everyone! Put ourselves first.


Name: Caroline Cutbirth
Age: 30
Hometown: Waco, Texas
Previous Seasons: Season 22
Current occupation: Catalog Coordinator / Promotions for Ramblin’ Music
Describe what you do: I get to listen to amazing songs all day and pitch them to influential people in the music industry to try and get them recorded by an artist on their album. We also have artists signed to our label and I travel around with them all over the country to get their song on radio stations.
Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Never stopping to ask for good directions and get maps.
Most memorable moment from your first Race: I loved sky diving over Bora Bora. That was breathtaking. Also, playing the bagpipes in Scotland was a really touching moment. And watching Jen finally fight her way through and survive “the bog” in Ireland was unforgettable.
Favorite place you visited on your first season: Bora Bora, Africa and Scotland.
Why do you want to run the Race again? The Race is the adventure of a lifetime. To get the chance to do it for the second time was hard to believe, and impossible to pass up! We wanted to experience more of the world and push ourselves to try anything and everything. Life is about experiences.
How have you changed since the last time you competed? Jen and I are not quite as boy crazy now, even though that may be hard to believe!
What are you passionate about? Family, friends, faith, laughter, adventure, music and animals.
People would be surprised to learn: The Race made Jen and me even stronger friends.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Self-driving.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She’s perfect!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? India and more of Africa. I think there is so much culture to take in; I would love to experience and learn and grow.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I want to make incredible memories, push myself past what I think I’m capable of, and leave the race understanding more and appreciating more of the world.
Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: Have fun! Laugh! Flirt! And ALWAYS get maps!

I really like them on their season, and without Bates&Anthony overshadowing them I think we could see them shine on their own :D

Their appearance is a pleasant surprise for me. Loved them on TAR 22 and am glad that producers decided to give them another shot despite their weak/mediocre performance last time round. TBH, they did do better than Mona and Beth and Joey and Meghan on certain legs.. so if Youtube are in this cast, so do they deserve a second chance. <333

Yeah, as mentioned, without the Hockey Bros in the race, we'll get to see what they're all about.  They might be worse or they might be better.  Of course, their gamble in their first leg of Season 22 shows that they're ready to do whatever it takes to win.

'Amazing Race' First Listen: All-Stars Season 24 Gets Its Own Country Anthem

By Carrie Bell February 22, 2014 10:45 AM Yahoo TV

When competing against 10 of the strongest, smartest, and most memorable teams in an all-star season of "The Amazing Race," you should take advantage of any little detail and strategy that might give you an edge, cement partnerships, and land you on Phil's final mat first.

So taking a page out of Rocky Balboa's playbook, country crooners Jennifer Wayne and Caroline Cutbirth — who perform under the moniker Stealing Angels and who placed fourth in Season 22 of CBS's Emmy-winning competitive trek around the world — have written themselves some motivational music to carry them through their second attempt to win the $1 million prize and Yahoo TV has your exclusive first listen.

"Here We Are," which will likely be available for purchase on iTunes next week after "Race" premieres this Sunday, was written after the women were asked to return to the show for a shot at redemption. "Jen and I wrote this song because you don't always get a chance to do something twice, especially something as life changing as 'The Amazing Race,'" Cutbirth explained via a CBS publicist. "We wanted to express our excitement and determination to win through a song, because that's what we do. This song is all about never giving up, giving it all you have and kicking ass. We believe you should always try as hard as you can with as much heart as you have."

Wayne added that the single can just as easily work as an anthem for life. "We were inspired by our fire and fight! We were gonna go into it with everything we had. I think this song is a perfect message for life: Give it all you have!"

The lyrics certainly bring more than a few past "Race" challenges to mind with mentions of fire, rain, and even a hurricane. Plus, it might even include a few clues to their blonde ambition and strategy. "We are going for the big win. We're here ready to try again. We are stronger than we've ever been. Getting another shot, giving it all we got … I will find the answers as I go, taking every corner slow."

See if they are pitch perfect or if they fall flat when Season 24 begins Feb. 23.


"Here We Are" Lyrics

I can hear that distant drum
Suddenly I start to run
I'm running, running, running

I don't want to miss a chance
I don't want to miss a dance
I'm coming, coming, coming

Are you in? Are you out? Are you coming with me now?

We are going for the big win
We're here ready to try again
We are stronger than we've ever been
Getting another shot, giving it all we got
Here we are, here we are, here we are, are, are

Bring on all the fire and rain
Hit me with the hurricane
I'm ready, ready, ready

I'll find the answers as I go
Taking every corner slow
I'm steady, steady, steady

Are you in? Are you out? Isn't that what life's about?

We are going for the big win
We're here ready to try again
We are stronger than we've ever been
Getting another shot, giving it all we got
Here we are, here we are, here we are, are, are

I don't want to look back
And say I should have done that
Here we are

We are going for the big win
We're here ready to try again
We are stronger than we've ever been
Getting another shot, giving it all we got

We are going for the big win
We're here ready to try again
We are stronger than we've ever been
Getting another shot, giving it all we got
Here we are, here we are, here we are, are, are
Here we are, are, are

Honestly, when I first learned that they are back for All Stars 2, I thought "ugh, why them?! Why not Pam & Winnie?"

Then after a while, I started appreciating the cast more and hoped that they become more than just the boy-crazed blondies from their season. And I don't know about you guys but their actions from the second episode did justice in thier inclusion to the cast. Now we could just hope that they don't ruin it  :conf:

I thought their move to get the Express Pass was absolutely the one of the highlights of this episode.

If you know you're in trouble, why not work something out instead of fretting over it? They used absolutely the right words to tell Jet and Cord that they know they're one of the weakest team (using the fact that they started last on that leg) and that giving them the Express Pass would be a great decision because they will burn it at that very task and then Jet and Cord won't even worry about it at any point.

And don't even say they were stupid to burn them on such an "easy looking task". They got through a task with something they got for free. Isn't that AWESOME?

If some other teams don't like the fact that they got the Express Pass by devaluing their race worth and competitive level plus how they flirt... it all comes down to them being jealous that they were the ones who didn't get it. Simple as that. :res:

Good deal for the Country Singers, bad for the Cowboys. Remember Lucy & Emilia got saved by the Salvage Pass, and they when on to beat Ross & Tarryn and advanced all the way to 5th place?

Sorry, posted this in the wrong thread before.  I didn't know this thread existed  :-[

They answered my question also about whether they are working on a new album or not.  Great interview, I thought.

As much as how happy I am to see Brenchel win Leg 7, I would have definitely loved Caroline & Jen to win the leg and beat the Cowboys recored of worst to First. They are a MUCH stronger team than what they are credited for. They just slayed the tasks in Rome, and even though some might argue Cancer just let them get Second, they gave Cancer the answer so they were gonna be 2nd anyway <3

Them being away from the Accidental Alliance definitely benefitted them :)

I don't get the hate for them, but there are a LOT of legs where their potential to be great racers have shown (Leg 4, 5, 7) and I hope they win at least one leg! :)

Well there still is the possibility of them winning the most important leg.  I want to root for them, but they're the last team left that I found somewhat likable so I don't want to jynx them.  Plus, they haven't done much this season to make me think they can make the final 3 especially when you consider no one in their right mind is going to help them next leg.  I hate to say it, but I think their only chance is if the knee injury ends up knocking out Leo & Jamal.

I realyl like this girls, they are fun to watch, they are having fun, and have that "luck energy" that makes this race unpredictable.

I want them to pull a "Dark horse Victory" out of nowhere in the next leg... but that's it, I won't be mad if they win the entire race, but I don't really want them to win it either. Is nice to root for the underdog but they deserve a nice 3rd place finish.

Placing 4th on the first race and making the final 4 again on the second race? Isn't that what Dustin and Kandace had done in their first race as well?

I don't get why is it that when woman depended on others who WILLINGLY help them, they are considered as weak? And when woman like Mirna who's snappy and domineering, people dislike her for her fierce attitude to win and get what she wants?

It's hard being an woman right? Is that why Nat and Kat are mildly popular? Because they do their own thing but still excel in their race and are nice as well?

They are obviously doing something right here, which is to get out of all the drama and to prevent themselves from being U-TURNed just because they are a weak team and possibly getting them eliminated on SO MANY OCCURRENCES. Imagine if they were not in Leo and Jamal's good books, they would have been the ones going home if Leo and Jamal U-TURNed them.

I have thoroughly enjoyed these women on both of their seasons. They have enjoyed the race, rarely complained, been good to the locals, and DONE EVERY SINGLE TASK THE MEN HAVE DONE. As a viewer, I have loved that they were enjoying the race so much, and that they are clearly dear friends. They have been unfailingly kind and supportive of each other. And so what if they have charmed others into helping them? That is a GREAT strategy!!

They go down in MY book as a great woman team. Casuals be damned.  :gva:

There were so many occurrences that would have eliminated the Country Singers last leg but their cool and calmness at the Detour pushed them to reach the U-TURN fourth. Plus, Jet and Cord blew their chances for not getting onto the first flight, how come no one is commenting on their inability to self-drive to the airport and causing their own demise? The girls didn't even have a chance to get onto the first flight and had to fight a Speedbump plus be handicapped at the other Detour which is clearly brutal and more physically demanding.

No doubt they landed on a NEL TWICE, but they are not the only team on the history of TAR to get this lucky. How come I don't hear anyone complaining about BJ and Tyler's luck too?

Oh I forgot, the recent TAR fans don't watch the earlier seasons... yawn.

Even if I don't like it... Taxi Luck it's been a HUGE factor in every season... pretty much every season has at least 1 team getting eliminated because of this... also... I don't think that was bad taxi luck from the other teams, but their inability to comunicate where they were going...

Yea.. I agree and it seems like Caroline and Jennifer worked out the Roadblock clue before Dave and Connor did as well that leg (and Connor arrived before them...).



I don't get the Speedbump hate too. The country singers needed to collect hams (1min), walk slowly to the bar (400m) with 6 heavy hams based on their physical ability (5mins by normal walking, so they most likely took maybe about 10mins?), figure out and ask for directions (2mins), walk/run back (3-5mins). It slowed them down by at least 15 to 20 mins, so.. what is so unfair about this Speedbump? A typical Yield in the past would have been 15mins too.

The speedbump wasn't really unfair, it was boring and uninspired.
Is not on their fault, is on the leg designers fault.
And they did the same with the previous speedbump, so that just adds to the problem.

i don't understand why so many people hate CaroJen
they are playing very smart in this season , by begging for the Express Pass as well as forming the alliance :funny:
flirting with their attractive appearance is just a smart way for them to seek help from the others :luvya:

some people keep saying that they would be eliminated this week if the cowboys are not u-turned as these two are not able to run fast )-**
in my opinion , cowboys would still have a higher chance to be eliminated as they were last at the W-turn
The elimination of cowboys isn't the fault of Caroline and Jen  :'(
those arguments are so mean and unfair to these two pretty women :'(

I hope they will win eventually :yess:

Yeh i agree with Peach. I also enjoy watching CaroJen a lot, they are always cheerful and supportive to each other. Obviously they are a weak team, however I think they really play smart in this Race, the most obvious one is asking for express pass in Leg 2, and also forming an alliance. I don't think they intend to do this, but they really know what to do when the right moment comes which can benefit them, I would say that their mental ability to run this race compensates for their physical weakness.

Also, they could do well in some non-physical tasks such as shuttlecock in Leg 2, Sewing shirt in Leg 5 and Calligraphy in Leg 8, it shows that they could excel in some areas. I don't think they have high chance to win, but there's still a possibility, it all rests on what kind of task it is, if it's a mental task they may have an advantage.

In fact, I am really amazed that they beat the cowboys at U-turn mat last leg, it's really a shock to me as they had to do Speedbump and still could reach U-turn earlier, so that means even without cowboys being U-turned CaroJen would still get fourth, they win in fair and square.

I'm actually upset that they didn't get a win on this leg. They raced hard and were very consistent throughout the leg with only one navigation issue which unfortunately cost them first place.

(I really wanted CaroJen to win a leg), but don't think they were robbed in anyway.

But it's just that it's Dave and Connor who won. Our cancer heroes <3 (small the sarcasm)

In any case, I am VERY HAPPY these girls made the finale. Whether or not they got through the end by luck, by people's help, by people underestimating them... WHO CARES? They made it to the end. NaNa can suck it up and call them names, but they did beat their asses fair and square on Leg 1. :funny:

I was really impressed with them last night.  I've liked them from the beginning, but will admit I didn't think they had much of a chance.  If only they had turned the other way, they would have had that win.  Oh well, fingers, eyes & toes crossed that they come in first on the final leg when it really counts.

I don't understand why you people like the Country Girls so much,but most of you hate Josh & Brent,who are just as weak and pathetic as them...It's just because they are girls?

Anyways,congratulations to them for taking Dandrew's spot as THE WORST TEAM EVER to get to the Final 3. But,I have to admit that they deserved to be in the Final 3 ONLY for yesterday's 11th Leg. They did everything almost perfectly. They did the leg so perfectly that it seemed that was not the same team.

For TAR 21, after Abbie and Ryan were eliminated, Josh & Brett was the team I rooted for the win.

Anyway, love that the girls made it to the final. Even they got help many times and saved by 2 NELs, they did had some good legs. Leg 2 they did a good strategy move and did so well in the Detour. Leg 5 in Sri Lanka, they did great. Leg 6, even they're in the last place, they did a very good leg with no big mistake (just a bit slow compared to the other teams). Leg 7 in Roma, they also did a good job even with a speed bump. And last leg they did nearly perfect except some last minutes before the Pit Stop.

GGF were alright as competitors but I didn't find them very interesting, the main problem is they won and robbed three other infinitely better/more entertaining teams in the process, without even having a conventional winners edit. Because Carojen either won't win or will win by only robbing one team of victory I'm inclined to support them more.

Same except I never liked GGF. I felt that they, unlike the other teams, were just "there". They didn't hustle to race, they looked like they didn't care at all when they hit Russia. The one thing I hate more about TAR Quitters is people who don't care at all that they had this amazing opportunity to win a Million and never strived hard until the end.

I wasn't very happy to see them recast, but I will say that they have somewhat redeemed themselves. They did exceptionally well while being up against teams that seemed to be much stronger than them. In the beginning I was upset to see them in this season at all (and I still don't agree that they should have been brought back), but I grew to like them a lot more by the end. They had such a great attitude and were truly in it for the experience.

I agree completely - I could have sworn it would have been the Ice Hockey Ladies back with Afghanimals, so when the Country Girls came back I was kind of surprised. Nonetheless, they were a ton more likable this time around and it definitely seems like they had so much fun. Caroline gained a twitter follower in me!  :)

Reality TV World: Congratulations on second place, girls. I know it's not first but it's still an accomplishment.

Jennifer Wayne: I know, we were four seconds away from being millionaires!

Reality TV World: Oh wow. You lost by literally only four seconds? I was going to ask how long after Dave and Connor you got to that Pit Stop mat.

Caroline Cutbirth: It was four seconds. The thing that was crazy is, we were in the cab at the cluebox and then Dave and Connor passed us, so we didn't really think anything of it. But the person who pulled the clue first got to jump first.

And so the fact that they pulled the clue first, I was in the helicopter five seconds before Dave, but they pulled the clue first so they took off first. So literally, we counted last night, and we got there four seconds after them. So we were just like, "Oh my gosh! We were four seconds away from a million dollars."

I guess that's what Phil meant when he promised the closest finish since Season 2 (when Chris & Alex beat Tara & Wil by seconds), but since it wasn't a traditional run to the finish line this time, I didn't get that.

In other words, the race was really over when they got to the last clue box.

Murtz On The Scene: Exclusive Interview With The Amazing Race All-Stars‘ Caroline Cutbirth & Jennifer Wayne

by Murtz on May 31, 2014

No one expected country singers Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Wayne to be on The Amazing Race All-Stars and not only did they surprise people by being on the show, but they seemingly shocked the Amazing Race community with an impressive second place finish on the show, narrowly losing out to Dave and Connor for the $1 million prize on the finale. I caught up with the team to discuss what happened and if they felt like they surprised a lot of people. We also discussed their feud with Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly in detail.

Jennifer Wayne: Hi, Murtz. How are you?!
Murtz Jaffer: I am good! You guys ready? We missed you at the finale in Vegas.
JW: I know, you know what? Caroline and I have been in the land of weddings lately. We have been in Vegas for the past month and a half. We have been in Vegas for four weekends in a row. Not only is our back account tapped out but we are tapped out of Vegas.
Caroline Cutbirth: I know! If we could have gotten that million dollars, maybe we could afford one more trip to Vegas but the $25,000 didn’t just quite cover it!

MJ: Caroline, it seemed like you guys were the complete underdogs of the season. Are you surprised that you managed to finish in second place?
CC:
You know we were the underdogs the whole season and no, I don’t think that we were surprised because Jen and I believe in ourselves. We came into this season and we just mentally decided that we were just as strong as anyone else because there are so many components that go into winning the Race other than just actual physical strength and we just kept a really positive attitude.
We got some really lucky breaks and we just believed that we are just as worthy and capable of winning as anyone else. Yeah it was kind of shocking because on paper we are not the strongest team but I believe it. I wasn’t surprised. At the last leg of the Race, I thought we were going to pull it off and win the whole thing.

MJ: Jen, when you finish second… is it bittersweet? Knowing that you made it so close to the $1 million dollars but just missed it by a hair?
JW:
Yeah, I think we literally lost by four seconds. So we counted and we were watching because whoever pulled the clue first got to jump first, so they pulled the clue and we pulled it four seconds later and it’s almost like… I think it would have been easier if we lost by like half an hour. That wouldn’t have been so heart breaking.
CC: Totally, I agree.

MJ: Caroline, how close were you to Dave and Connor before they finished on the mat ahead of you?
CC:
They won by four seconds because it wasn’t actually who got in the helicopter first. It was who pulled the clue first. Because I got in the helicopter and I was dressed to jump five minutes before Dave but he pulled the clue first so his helicopter took off. That’s how I knew they had won it once he was in the air.
The only hope we had was that he would miss the clue on the strip, but he got it and so then when once I saw him pass, like flying through the strip, I was like okay, we are second. We didn’t win.

MJ: Jen, can you discuss your flirting strategy on the Race and how much it helped you during the course of the show?
JW:
I think our flirting really helped us. We flirt with everybody. Boys, girls, ourselves We are just friendly people really and I think that people liking us really helped because we got a lot of help from people and we also gave a lot of help which they didn’t show. But we really created a sense of community and I definitely think it helped us.

MJ: Caroline, your feud with Brenchel was one of the primary storylines of the season. Can you explain how it got started?
CC:
The thing is we liked the Branchels. We thought they are fine people and they chose a different way to race. When they U-Turned Dave and Conner, that’s really when the line was drawn. Dave got really upset and Jen and I have always loved Dave and Conner and so we naturally aligned with them. We don’t hate the Branchels at all, we understand that they were trying to win first place. So I get their reasoning but then it just sort of took off from there. And then at the last leg of the Race, Jen and I really were not really involved in the feud, it was more between Dave and Conner and the Branchels… but then on the last leg of the Race, Rachel did kind of pull out the claws a little bit and pushed Jen and then she started shoving dirt in Conner’s hole and digging the treasure chest.
JW: They stole our taxi…
CC: They really brought their claws out on the last episode. So I don’t know, that’s fine. They are just not people we would hang out with on the regular.

MJ: Jen, the question that was burning for me to ask you is that it seemed like you really blame Brendon and Rachel for U-Turning Dave and Connor. But can you really blame them for that as Dave and Connor were really the strongest team on the show? Isn’t the U-Turn designed to hurt the strongest team which was Dave and Connor?
JW:
I think you can use the U-Turn in several different ways and that was the first U-Turn of the season and usually there are two. If Caroline and I got to the U-turn board in first, we wouldn’t have U-turned anybody we would have just continued on and finished in first place. That way you have a saved U-Turn for the next time. Once you use your U-turn, you can never use it again. And so in case you get U-Turned in the next leg, you could still U-Turn somebody else. And so if we were in last place or if we were fighting for the leg and trying to stay in then we definitely would use the U-Turn. But for us, strategy-wise, I would think it’s a lot smarter to pass the U-Turn board when you are in first, take your first place and not to waste your U-Turn. So that’s how I would look at it.

MJ: Caroline, what happened with them in the airport on your way to Vegas. Did they cut in front of you? Did they push you? It was vaguely referenced on the finale but no one really knows what actually happened.
CC:
It wasn’t like caught on film, we were all racing to get… It’s one of those behind-the scene-things and we are racing to go through customs or something and basically we were waiting for our crew and Jen…
JW: It’s kind of behind-the scenes stuff but you have a sound guy and a camera guy running with you at all times. So when we get to the line for customs, we were in second behind Dave and Conner and the Branchels were behind us but they said that they should have been in front of us because our sound guy wasn’t there with us. That’s not a rule. The rule is your sound guy and camera guy just have to catch up to you. It’s the team has to be there first. Literally the camera guys get there, they tell them ‘no, Jane and Caroline should be second and you guys should be third’ and they went and passed customs to film us running out, to shoot us running out and they stepped in front of us and she took her elbow and literally like shoved me behind her.
Caroline and I are not going to fight with anybody. That’s just not who we are and so we will definitely not get physical so we are like, ‘hey if you want to be in front of us that bad… take it.’ And then at the end of the Race, she came up to me and said, I am sorry if you think I pushed you but I don’t even know what that means. That’s not an apology. I don’t even know what that means. So it’s very weird, the whole thing was super weird.

MJ: And Jen, what is your relationship like with all the teams now, do you generally get along with everyone?
JW:
Oh, yeah, we love everybody. We talk to Leo probably once a week, we talk to Flight Time all the time. We talk to Dave and Conner.
CC: We talk to the Cowboys too…
JW: We really made some great friends this season.

MJ: Caroline, what was the toughest challenge for you?
CC:
Well, clearly I struggled with the assembling in China. That was really tough. I hate assembling in general, especially a car, an electronic car with 37 million pieces, and I was really relieved when Jen maneuvered the express pass.

MJ: Jen, do you think you surprised people by how well you did?
JW:
Do you want to answer Caroline?
CC: Go ahead Jen…
JW: I think that we did. I think that we knew that we could do it but we just kind of know our strengths and weaknesses and that they are different from everyone else’s. Obviously, physically, we weren’t the strongest team. But we were really good at directions this year. We didn’t make any mistakes. We really learned a lot from last season and I think that really helped us and we did excel at some of the tasks. We almost got first place on several legs and we got a lot of help from people. We also gave a lot of help and of course they didn’t show that because I think that our role was to be the blondes that need help from everybody. But we really did help people and got help back.

MJ: Caroline, how do you answer critics that say that you guys simply used your looks to your advantage to get ahead on the Race?
CC:
Sorry, Leo is calling me right now! How funny is that?! I think people love to hate, and people are always going to find something wrong with anyone, especially when you are putting yourself in a situation to be hated on. I mean we are racing for a million dollars on national TV and I think our schtick was to be the blondes and I think it’s really normal that people are going to hate us for being that.
Blondes have been hated forever for being dumb blondes but you know what? We are laughing all the way to almost a million dollars, dang it we almost got there!

MJ: Jen, what’s next for you?
JW:
We are actually going to record some new music so that’s really exciting because we haven’t done it in a couple of years. And so we are really looking forward to that and we also are hosting a big festival in Nashville called Nashville Dancin’ and that’s every Thursday night during the summer. It’s a free show for all the people that live in Nashville and the Riverfront. Caroline and I are the official hosts for that! It should be a fun summer!

MJ: Amazing, Thank you so much!
CC:
We love you too, you are so awesome, thanks for being such a great supporter of the race, and you make it really special for all of us.

MJ: Amazing, thank you so much. I am sure we will talk soon.
JW:
Thanks Murtz, bye!

Every interview is depressing.
We are all misfits living in a world on fire.
