Vance's Final Mailing Before His Midwest Extravaganza Tour (and a love letter)

Hi All,

I’ve recently gotten heavily into the writing of country singer Chris Stapleton. If anyone knows him, please let him know that I’d like to open a show or two or something. Or be his valet. Cook. Whatever. The first of these three I’m completely serious about…

He does this so very well:

In the meantime, I have had to nudge my allegiances. Yes, I can text Grammy Winner Lori McKenna whenever I want to. Yes, I’m name dropping and bragging. She’s sung on my albums. I been over all up in at her house. But since discovering Chris Stapleton, sorry, I don’t love her like I used to:

Dearest Loopy Macadamia,

Omg. Where have I been? Dear lord please tell me that Chris Stapleton is a nice guy.
They way he stitches a song together... and he sings ok.
Omg. I want to be a hairy faced white boy.
Please accept my apologies for no longer being the Blak Lori McKenna.


(HER) Hi Hon!! How are you??? Chris is a really nice guy. Very quiet genius. His wife is my hero - one of the most beautiful women I have ever been around. If you continue to be the black male me I will try damn hard to be the white female you? Does that work?

I am NOT fickle. Just...discerning. DO NOT judge me.
