Happy April! So pumped that it’s finally spring! My favorite time of year!
Just wanted to take a minute to update y’all on what’s going on in my music world!
As I said in my last blog, I am working vigorously in the studio on new music and some very exciting opportunities! I got the privilege to head down to Tampa, Fl at the beginning of this month to write with a very talented guitar player, producer, and songwriter; Peter Klett and finished two AMAZING songs in two days! Can’t wait for you guys to hear them as well as the others we have written! I am so proud of what we have achieved over the past couple of months and I am so thrilled to share my journey and great news with you guys very soon!
I would encourage all of you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for my mailing list to receive updates and exclusive previews to some of the new songs as well as some free downloads!
Thank you all so much for making every minute of what I do worth it! I cannot wait to continue to share this crazy journey with ya’ll. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter celebrating our Lord who is Risen! Don't know about ya'll, but I sure am thankful for the Cross!
LOVE YOU GUYS! You rock!
Happy February everybody!
Hope this month has started off great for you all!
First, I would just like to wish everyone an early Happy Valentines Day! Hope ya’ll enjoy spending time with the ones you love, not only on this holiday, but every day! :)
Second, I just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on in my world! I am busy in the studio writing for a new EP! I am SO excited about the music that we are making right now and cannot wait to be able to share it with you all! Because we are focusing on making this record, we are not going to be on the road as often as we have been..BUT, we do have some shows lined up here and there so I hope that you guys will come check us out if we are in your area!!!
March 7- Saddle Bags, Savannah, GA.
April 4- Alley Bar, Montgomery, AL.
A lot of great things are happening right now and I am excited to have you all along the journey with me! Keep checking back in for updates on everything that is going on!
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your support! You guys mean everything to me and I cannot thank you enough!
Happy 2014, folks!
Hope this New Year is off to a good start for you all! It definitely has been for me!
We have a lot of exciting things happening right now that we cannot wait to share in the near future so stayed tuned for that!
But right now, I can say that I have been working hard in the studio writing and recording new music for ya’ll! We are working towards an EP that will soon be available for download but also hard copy purchase! I have put all of me in these songs and I hope that you all will love them as much as I do!
Also, if you missed the Facebook announcement, the music video for “Stirred, Not Shaken” is now airing on TNN/Heartland Network! Seeing it on my TV screen was a feeling I cannot explain and I am so happy that it is being shown to the world via television! We worked extremely hard on the video AND the song… and to see it all pay off was a wonderful feeling for me! If you get the channel, keep checking to see if you catch the video!
Our first show of the year will be January 31 in Macon, GA. at the Crazy Bull. We’ve got a great show planned and hope that all of you in the area will join us! It’s gonna be a good time….as always!
Again, thank you for making 2013 such an amazing year for me! I am SO excited about everything that 2014 has in store for my career!
You guys ROCK!
Well folks.. Just like that it's December. A little over a week ago it was Thanksgiving and now only about 2 weeks until Christmas. I swear this year has flown by faster than usual!
I hope that ya'll had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the Christmas season!
We are finished with our 2013 year shows and I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the fans, new and old, who have come out to see us and made each and every show such a blast! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I will be taking a (small) break to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends, then beginning in January '14 I will begin the process of recording a new EP! I'm really excited about this one so I believe it's gonna be the best one yet!
We do, however, have one more show for the year. On Sunday, Dec. 15 at 8/7pm CST, I will be hosting an online Stage It Christmas Show that will be benefitting the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. The Salvation Army has always had a huge place in my heart due to their help with multiple acquaintances I have known throughout my years. It truly is a very special program and I hope that you all will join me in supporting them through this concert!
I will be playing this show in Nashville, but you don't have to be there with me! Stage It provides a unique opportunity for fans to watch a concert that is streamed live on the internet from our home to yours! Tickets are ONLY $10 and all of the proceeds will go to the Angel Tree Program. Even if you will not be at a computer to watch the show, we hope that you will buy a ticket anyway to support the cause!
I have created a video showing how to purchase your ticket and also a little information on what the Salvation Army Angel Tree program is all about and I hope that you guys will check it out, share with your friends, and afterwards… buy your ticket!! ;)

Again, thank you ALL for an amazing 2013. Your love and support means more to me than you will ever know and I am grateful beyond words! I am excited for what the new year has in store and I can't wait continue to share my journey with you! I hope that you and your loved ones have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
