This is the band’s first tour and the start of what is looking to be a huge step in the career of JCB and one that has shown Carlson’s drive to succeed. In 2001, Jeff Carlson was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, as well as Crohn’s disease. He had fallen ill and was rushed to the hospital to have emergency surgery, where he actually died for almost three minutes on the operating table. He then underwent four more surgeries and still continues to deal with both of these diseases today.
Carlson Explains: "I thank God every day that I'm above ground, because life is too precious not to do what you love. This new record was written for everybody out there who is faced with challenges that life throws at you, and you keep going. It's like one of my heroes Rocky Balboa said - "life's not about how hard you get hit...it's about how hard you get hit and keep going!" “Yesterday's Gone” was written with that frame of mind....hope. I struggle every day with my disease, and even though I have it, it doesn't have me or my drive to what has gotten me to this point in my life."It’s that kind of hunger that flows through every track that Jeff writes and can be heard profoundly in the latest single “Over My Shoulder.”Jeff Carlson: "I wrote this song about believing in yourself enough to push through life's limitations and not giving up on your dreams until they become a reality."
