      Mike Compton is on Facebook Live doing requests this evening at 7:00 p.m. Central. Any donation to his virtual tip jar would make you eligible (as long as you're in the U.S.) to enter for a chance to win this guitar from Eastman.

      Who else is playing in the near future or even today? Hard to keep track of them all! Think I saw Sierra is doing an online gig today.

      Eastman has announced they're continuing this promotion another week. We're 100% in support of this and they'll be giving away another guitar in the process.

      As announced on their Facebook page:

      To everyone who has offered support to their local/favorite musicians, let us just say thank you. Keep it going! We are going to continue #tiptowin for another week and offer an E2OM as the prize for one lucky winner. If you have already entered you are still entered but multiple entries for multiple musicians are welcomed and encouraged.
