The White Lighter tour kicks off next weekend and continues to take shape with stops booked in Nashville, Ohio, Brooklyn, and Athens, Georgia through the new year. And be sure to carve out January 8 on the calendar when Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons join the Low Anthem at Lily Pads in Peace Dale.

Oh, and about that fund-raising effort: 130 generous fans, friends, and family members contributed through kickstarter.com and, in just one month, the band exceeded its $5500 goal. Fletcher calls his benefactors "Cowboy Angels."

"The response was quite overwhelming, to say the least," said Fletcher. "I had no idea if such a thing would work for us initially.

"The mere fact that I am just one person, and 130 other people enjoy what we do enough to offer their money to help us get the record released, is very moving to me."
