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!! ;)

We will continue to post Throwback Thursday Acoustic Cover Videos every other Thursday, so I hope that ya'll will help me out and tell me songs you would like me to cover! It has been fun so far and I'm excited to see what ya'll throw at me!! Be sure to check out a new cover THIS THURSDAY, Dec. 12 ! I'd love for you to subscribe to my YouTube Channel as well to see the new videos FIRST! :)
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! See you in the New Year! …… (But again before that on Sunday, Dec. 15!! haha)
Happy November folks!!

So I just wanted to let ya’ll know what’s going on this month!
I am preparing to shoot an EPK ( Electronic Press Kit) this month in Nashville and I am so excited about it! An EPK is basically just a way for fans to get to know me a little better and to introduce myself to those who may not know me yet! This is going to be so fun!
After we accomplish this, we will be back on the road at the end of the month playing shows and will go on to the end of November to close out the year! We’ve got some great shows planned so be sure to check my website and Facebook to see if we’ll be in a town near you!

I just want to take a little minute and tell ya’ll what I’ve been up to!
August is going to be a crazy but AMAZING month!!
As you may have seen on facebook, twitter, or my website, I am releasing my new single, “Stirred, Not Shaken” to iTunes AUGUST 13!!! I am so proud of this song and cannot wait for ya’ll to be able to check it out!
Along with releasing a new single, there then has to, of course, be a photo shoot! I had so much fun at my shoot a couple of weeks ago and we got some great shots!!! Big thank you to Trey Mitchell for doing such an amazing job and to Lisa Proctor for providing me with her crazy awesome hair and make up skills! J
Two days after the photo shoot, I embarked on my first ever music video! I can’t really put in to words how surreal and amazing it was, but trust me… it was! I could not have accomplished all of this without the help of my amazing family, friends, cast, and crew! HUGE thanks to Skydive Films for doing such an outstanding job on the video (yes.. I’ve already seen it.. DIED!!!) and to Lisa Proctor once again for baring with me for two days doing my hair and makeup!
The video will be out mid to late August so ya’ll stay tuned!!!

AUGUST 17 is the Braves game- Ya’ll be sure to get your tickets for that! It’s going to be a great night!
One more thing! I am in the semi-finals for the Georgia-Country Awards in the Female Artist of the Year category, and If you haven’t voted already…. DO IT! J haha. Voting for the semi-final round will end at noon on August 31!
Well, I know that was a lot to take in but I hope that ya’ll are as excited as I am about everything that is going on!
