Schultz performed “Everything To Me” that is the story of his own adoption that is available on Broken & Beautiful.
In support of the album, Schultz is currently headlining the “Broken & Beautiful” tour that also features Big Daddy Weave and fiddler, David Klinkenberg. The tour kicked off in Decatur, IL on September 29 and will run through November. Response to the tour has been overwhelming with several shows already sold out.Tweet
