Hello friends and family.

I never knew what I would say when the time came to do this. But Ive reached a point in my life where I need to step down from touring. For me, its the greatest thing to be able to travel the country with your closest friends/brothers and play music that your so passionate about. It is something I will cherish and hold onto forever. 

I have met so many people out there that I will never forget. People 50 to 3,000 miles away that I will forever consider family. I can’t tell you enough how much Philmont loves our friends and fans. I pray you guys still support the band and lift them up. Those guys are going to continue to write amazing music and do amazing things. Be very excited for the things coming up from Philmont.

As for me, my jersey/pillow case will be hung up in Burney as well as my xbox controller. I kid but seriously Im going to pursue art and become a tattoo artist as well as designing. Who knows you might see some Philmont merch designs from me down the road?! Also me and Elizabeth (Elizabeth and I) are going to get married and start a family starting with a puppy of our own of course. 


Again, I’ve had the greatest time of my life getting to know many of you and my brothers in the band.  Please continue to be the greatest fans in the world. Find me on Facebook and stay in touch. 


You guys and girls are great. Merry Christmas! I love you all

your friend,

Justin Sams
