#kickitwithkissel is back!  

#kickitwithkissel is back!! We were beyond excited to open for Brett Kissel last year on his "Ice, Snow & 30 Below" tour, but equally as excited for the chance to open for him again on his upcoming "We Were That Song" tour. All we have to do is post a cover of our favourite BK song. Sounds easy right? Wrong! The band has been at each other's throats trying to decide which song we should do. Please help us out by commenting either "Tough People Do" or "I Didn't Fall In Love With Your Hair." If you could let us know before someone dies (or worse, the band breaks up!) that would be greaaat.
