Excerpt from the event's invitation:
when matt and i moved into the gas station in nashville to open up shop, a stranger and now dear friend brought us a housewarming gift. it was a book about the grand ole opry and a legendary photographer named jim mcguire.
fast forward 6 months.
matt needed a new (old) bicycle. he went to ebay and won the auction for his dream raleigh. ironically, the bicycle and its owner were in nashville, 4 streets over from imogene+willie.
matt went to pick up the bicycle. when he returned, there was no talk about the bicycle that was in the back of his truck, but only awe about the kind, intriguing, creative man at the special house that sold him the bike. it was mcguire.
because of the bicycle, which finally brought us to jim mcguire, we are celebrating.
