On Tuesday, September 24, 2019 the Envision Band members were travelling when another car rear-ended one of the band vehicles causing it turn spin and flip multiple times before coming to rest on the opposite side of Interstate 40. You will find the entire story below from WXII NBC Channel 12.
The accident could've easily ended differently and we're certainly happy to hear that all members are okay with the exception of of a few who suffered some injuries. Our prayers go out to each of you for complete healing and we know this was a scary night for all involved. Envision will perform on Friday, November 8, 2019 during the CBMA weekend so make plans to see them.
Over the weekend, Envision was on the way back from a gig close to Raleigh when they were blindsided by another car.
"Someone out of nowhere at what seemed to be 100 miles per hour just came and rear-ended us. We spun and we flipped multiple times," Envision front man, Michael Thomas said.
As if that wasn't bad enough, they landed on the opposite side of interstate 40.
"Once we settled from flipping, boom, another car hit us. It was a second impact," Thomas said.
Amazingly, Thomas only had minor cuts and bruises, the guitarist had a bruised elbow and the most serious damage was to their saxophone player, with a broken ankle.
"We're just blessed. We are 150 percent blessed," he said.
Not only did the band members somehow survive this crash, they were back to doing what they love just three days later and didn't skip a beat.
Thomas knows how lucky his band is and says has a different outlook on life now.
"I have stitches, scratches and a bruised knee. I'll take it compared to what the other outcome should've been," he said.
The one thing he wants to make sure is heard is that he thinks there was a higher power watching over his band that night.
"I'm going to tell as many people as I can what God did for us that night," he said.
Michael Thomas is an employee with WXII.

On September 11, 2019, Delbert McClinton received the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. An article published on the Music Row website reads:
"Nobody knows how to light up the stage quite like multi-Grammy winner Delbert McClinton, who will be receiving the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. From his early bands The Straitjackets and The Rondels to his current iteration with the Self-Made Men + Dana, he continues to sell out concert halls coast to coast. Following his rise as a prominent figure in the flourishing Texas music scene of the mid-‘70s and ‘80s, McClinton’s impact ultimately expanded beyond state lines. The roots music veteran began his highly lauded career as a professional harmonica player before becoming a formative artist who has since recorded award-winning as well as chart-topping works, including his funk-inflected staple “Giving It Up for Your Love” (1980). McClinton has graced many distinguished stages throughout the last six decades, lending his palpable energy and dynamic stage presence to performances on Saturday Night Live and Austin City Limits, to name a few. As Lyle Lovett lovingly puts it, “If we could all sing like we want to, we’d all sound like Delbert McClinton.”
Congratulations on a well deserved award, we love Delbert's music and his distinctive style and sound. You will find a few of his recordings below.
