Matt's Story: Thank you Dawson

Almost 10 years ago, I had first heard Dawson McAllister on the radio when I was on tour throughout Tennessee. I was only 16 or 17 at the time, now I'm 27. I have 2 beautiful daughters and in a much happier place. Mostly because of the conversation I had with Dawson McAllister on the air while I was driving and it was late. I was considering just turning the wheel and going off the road and doing whatever I could to just end it. But after the talk we had, I changed my mind.

I just wanted to thank you, my friend, Dawson. Without God, and without you... I wouldn't have my two beautiful girls to wake me up and drive me nuts every morning. And I wouldn't change that for the world. Thank you.
