Backstory: Last night on the bus, a confused Matt thought he was going to Alaska, “Great show. Great fans. It’s gonna be awesome playing the home state of Kris 2mor, AK It’s gonna be quite a night. Were all excited! G’night” Kris corrects him, “um…don’t know how to say this but….AK is Alaska.” A slightly embarrassed Matt, “Ha ha ha. Adam totally told me that was right earlier!!!! Laughing in my bunk! Ha ha sorry. AR!!!!!” and then, “@KrisAllen4Real wait you’re not from Alaska???…..oh”. The next morning Matt twitters, “Oooooooooooh I see. : \”   (Erm I’ve made the same mistake…)
