    This is a post I made on Facebook this morning.

    There was no doubt this day would appear sometime , and now.it is only three days until it rises up and I am not sure how to convey my feelings about it's finally coming.

    It is often said by many in a similar situation how hard t is to say goodbye to true friends that you consider as brothers. I am not going to say anything that is different, because it is an actual fact that I will be performing for the last time with Hundred Acres, and it is way hard. The show starts at 9pm at O'Mainnin's Pub in Bristol on State Street next to Macado's. There are no issues between us, no drama involved at all. It is just time to hang it up. My health situation continues to decline making it increasingly difficult to get up on stage. My wonderful friends at Blue Cross and the charade of an appeals system that is designed to put you off until you either give up or die continue to prevent my having surgery that can help me.

    I want to say to my brothers of Hundred Acres, it has been a blast sharing the stage with you. I am going to miss you, and I wish you all the success that you can have. Thanks for letting an old man live a dream.

    Nothing pisses me off more than insurance.

    Randy Broyles you are one of the finest men I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I wish you final show was at Preservation Pub in Knoxville, because I will always cherish the memories of the times you guys tore the house down there. I love you, my friend.

    If I was the judge and you were brought before me to be tried for kicking the head men at Blue Cross in the nuts, I would dismiss all charges, with one exception. I would probably have to fine you $5.00 - for not kicking them twice.

    I fail at finding the words that adequately express just how meaningful your statements are Keith. Your support has always been an encouragement. I also love you as a brother.

    Funny, I was just thinking of doing just that.

    You obviously love to perform, which is why this hurts you so much. Just remember all the good times and take solace that you had the balls and the talent to do it.

    Sad news. The world can be an unfair and cruel place. I wish I could make the show and have no doubt that it will be one for history books. Keep up the good fight.

    Very sorry to hear this, RB. I'd hoped to see/hear you perform live, and will not give that up. Insurance bureaucracy is infuriating and I am so sorry for what you've endured.

    I appreciate the sentiments behind your posts, but do not be so sad. I have done pretty much what I set out to do musically being realistic. I have been blessed with many friends and it was a good ride. Time for life's next chapter, and hopefully a new challenge to tackle.

    Randy, I love you brother. This equal parts makes me happy and sad. All while also pissing me off.
