Finally, Beckley introduces the first band to get the party started. "If my family is out with me, my son likes to watch the shows. If not, I'll go back to the bus and the band will hang out. That's our alone time, where we can zoom in a little further on what we need to do."

9 p.m.—10:30 p.m. Pillar rocks the house!

10:30 p.m.—12 a.m. Autographs/hang time with fans. "Every night someone comes up and tells us how the music has changed their life, how the music saved their marriage or how that one song, they just happened to hear it at that perfect moment. It's crazy, hearing stories from people. That stuff motivates me."

12:30 a.m. On the road again/lights out. Beckley's first piece of advice for maintaining a hyped-up stage presence is "plenty of rest. Don't stay up all night playing Halo." Got it, Mom ... I mean, Rob.
