HELP THE SOUTH CAROLINA FLOOD RELIEF CHARITIES
In 2010 I lived through Nashville's version of a 1000 year flood so while watching the events of this past week in my beloved South Carolina my heart broke in more ways than you can ever imagine. This tragedy has torn apart families, homes & lives across the great state of South Carolina so in the idea of helping in absolutely any way possible TODAY thru Oct. 21st ALL PROCEEDS from the purchase of MY ALBUMS & MERCHANDISE will be donated to The South Carolina United Way of the Midlands Foundation. Through the United Way of the Midlands all funds raised will be directed to local organizations working to assist individuals & families affected by the crisis. United Way of the Midlands will underwrite all administrative costs associated with dispersing these funds, and 100% of funds received will go directly to support flood recovery efforts.
Much Love to You All & Thank You So Much.

PD & HIS MIDNIGHT CHOIR - Large Band Dates Announced
Patrick has decided it is time to start making his live shows exactly as he hears them happening in his head by bringing out a band that now consists of a horn section, background singers and the "normal" suspects led by PD's dad Rusty. Check out the tour section to see exactly where PD will be with this new lineup that he is calling "His Midnight Choir" in honor of one of his all time favorite lyrics from the beautiful Leonard Cohen song "Bird on a Wire".
