scott riggan concert_0425Back in January I made a decision. I made up my mind that 2013 would be a lighter year for my music career.

Of course, next year I’ll be back with a new record and a lot more touring, but for now I have plenty to juggle here at home. I’m a worship pastor, and between my work at Eagle Christian Church and family stuff, I have more than enough to keep me busy full time.

We’ve just built a barn at the Riggan Ranch, and for years I’ve been putting off a lot of work around here while waiting for my schedule to slow down a bit. What I’ve finally learned is … life won’t ever slow down until I choose to slow down.

So that’s what I’m doing. I’m choosing to slow down for a few months. Of course, I still have shows on the calendar, and I’m working on a bunch of songs for my next CD… But I’m giving myself permission to take a break from constant booking work, shows, blogging, etc. I expect to come back refreshed and with renewed energy.

Thank you, all of you who follow my music and writing. Please be patient while I take this mini-sabbatical. I’ll look forward to reconnecting with you all in a few months.

Grace, peace and good vibes,

    Very admirable. Everyone needs to take time off and you’ve been going at it a long time. And if this is what it takes to finally get a new CD out of you, it’s worth it!

    By all means, take a break! But when you’re all rested and refreshed, come back to Texas!!!

    Where are those pics from? I saw you in Illinois and it was just guitars and percussion and no big production (it was great, btw). But I’d love to see your show when you do it big.

    I am very happy that you have made this decision. Family always should come first. Take care of yourself and then you will much more capable of taking care of others. Loves and prayers for many blessings while you do for you! <3
