“In case you missed it, at around this time last week in Nashville, I met The Jon Bellion in person. Somehow I managed to not freak out, still don’t understand how.
Today marking the one week anniversary, I hereby announce that this jacket that I wore when Jon Bellion hugged me is up for viewing at my private museum, at a fee. Signed, management. ? @dxtrf ?? Thank you”.
Happy birthday Johnny Drille!!!
