Missing Bryan White

I was sitting here today listening to music and I noticed my Bryan White CD in my collection. I hadn't heard it in a long time, then I started to think about Bryan White, and I hadn't heard about him in a long time either. I wonder what ever happened to him? Well apparently he kind of dropped off the face of the earth. I learned a lot about him at his official website and reading this biography of Bryan White was really informative. However, if you look at his tour, you can see that he's not much of a draw at the moment. I remember going to see him at Eastern Illinois University. He was fresh and hadn't even hit it big yet, as the opening act for Diamond Rio (also pre ginormasism) he played a guitar and sang without a band. I liked him enough that I went out and bought his album, which later went platinum. I miss him, I always kind of identified with him, probably because we were close to the same age and I always thought that it could be me up there. That is, if I could play an instrument, sing, or write songs, but the age being close always helped.
