Quotes

In an interview with Guitar World, guitarist Chris Henderson touches on how stripping down their setlist to acoustic versions will affect the music: "It's a beautiful thing when a song translates to acoustic guitar... I think a lot of our songs do translate well, because we wrote something like 90% of our songs, even the rock songs - even "Believer" and all that stuff - they were written on acoustic first."
"It was slower at some points but the person would not yield" Gardner said
"There's no agenda, no political reasons," said spokeswoman Marion Watkins. "It's just a trip outout to Kansas to reconnect with friends and supporters who have been there for him in his many years in Congress."
For some team members, this is more than just a bike ride. "For me at least, its kind of my step out there. This is what I am putting my goals at and this is how I am going to lead myself. I believe that you need to lead yourself before you can effectively lead others" explains Freshman team member, Colby Mears
