Levi Weaver is not the kind of artist who likes to sit still for very long. To borrow a line from Willie Nelson, one of his favorite songwriters, he just can’t wait to get on the road again. The multi-instrumental singer/songwriter, who recently packed up his house and bought an RV for his family to travel the country with him in, readily admits to his inherent wanderlust, having grown up going from town to town to follow wherever the rodeo his father worked for went. “It’s accurate,” Weaver agrees. “I didn’t think it was much to do with my childhood until we bought this RV and the first week out, there was this sense of… almost relief. Like going home after a long time away. No wonder I’ve had commitment issues with locations; I couldn’t find home because home was a moving target.” A tireless troubadour, Weaver has averaged 200 shows a year, often covering upwards of 50,000 miles in travel — and now his wife, their two small children, and their dog have all joined him on tour. “Having them out with me makes me feel like a millionaire, because if I had a million dollars, this is how I’d spend it,” he observes. That said, being out on the road all-in does present its own set of challenges. “It’s a lot like a relationship within a relationship, actually,” Weaver says. “It will be awful sometimes, but it’s worth it. ‘You are, for me. I am, for you. Whatever circumstance happens, we’re in this together.’ Going through those things reminds you how committed you really are. ‘Well, that didn’t stop us. We know we can beat that obstacle now.’ It’s been a lot like that. Yeah, we might end up vomiting in a parking lot in Brooklyn, but we’re still here. I like that.” We like it too.
