2010 - Gone But Not Forgotten!

Hey everyone,

Whew - what a year that was.

2010 brought me so many wonderful things to be grateful for:

  • "Home" went to #1 as a single song and as an album on the Folk DJ charts. 
  • I got to play on the mainstage at The Kerrville Folk Festival
  • I was one of four winners at the Wildflower! Festival Performing Songwriters Competition
  • Anna and I opened for Joe Ely at Uncle Calvin's Coffeehouse in Dallas, TX. 
  • I played an official showcase at the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference. 
  • I played two shows at Bristol Rhythm and Roots festival
  • We did our first tour up to Michigan and met all kinds of wonderful folks. 
  • I bought a fabulous new Taylor guitar at Elderly Instruments. 
  • My side project southern rock band, Hirum Hickum, recorded a 4 song demo and played our first gig.

Overall, I got to play about 60 shows to thousands of people and keep doing what I love. I am so grateful to all the new fans along the way. I am so grateful to Anna Denison for her talent and willingness to hit the road with me. I am so grateful to my friends (esp. Shyrl!) and family who love and support me in this crazy ride. I'm extra grateful for my husband, Mark, for always having my back and for loving me even when I'm not so lovable. 


Hugs to all and here's to an even more amazing 2011!!!


cheers and to-do lists~
