It would be hard for us to pick a better way to ring in the New Year than last night’s celebration at Hotel Sorella in Houston, TX. Many thanks to the Cody Bryan Band for getting the night off to a rockin’ start and to all the friends and family in attendance that came out and got down with us. We’d especially like to thank our good friend Milton Otto for sharing these awesome photos from the night. Because it was too epic a night for just one gallery, watch for more photos to be posted soon.
