This winter, pop brother trio Before You Exit is hitting the road on Action Item's The Resolution Tour and J-14 is giving you a sneak peak in to the lives of the boys while they keep us up to date in their exclusive tour diaries from the road! Check out the first tour diary below from vocalist Riley McDonough.

On the first of the New Year marked the day that we headed off on the road from Orlando to Boston to start the Resolution Tour! We were headed to Boston but we made a pit stop in Nashville to pick up the bus along the way. After settling in, we were geared up for the tour. It had been a little while since we played a show and after weeks of practicing, we were all excited and nervous for the shows to come.

January 4th. The first day of tour, and the release date of our new single 'I Like That'! We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reactions to our new song. This, along with the start of the tour led to a very exciting day in the Before You Exit camp. After getting to the venue, it was really awesome getting to talk to all the bands, some of which we were meeting for the first time. The first show was a lot of figuring out technical issues, but after working through them the show was fantastic. We got to play 'I Like That' for the first time, and even though we had just released it earlier that day, some fans already knew all of the words! It was amazing that the show sold out and we got to meet so many fans. It was great being able to see so many new and familiar faces.

New York was the next stop on the agenda and when we woke up, we drove right into the city. New York is always one of my favorite places to be, and it's even more fun to play there. Although we didn't get to hang out too much in the city, it was still really awesome to play at a venue that we had never been to before, The Gramercy Theatre. Also, while at the show, we got to meet and hang out with Kevin Jonas. He was such a cool guy and we've always been big fans, so all-in-all a great experience. The show was incredible! One of my favorites that we have played and the crowd couldn't have been more amazing. We really cannot wait to go back.
