Well, it’s been a year…

I sit here listening to the albums I listened to on my drive to Nashville a whole year ago. I packed my van, quit my job, moved in with three people I didn’t know, to a city I had barely visited. My plan was to survive.

Look at me, surviving and stuff!

It has been a complete whirlwind. I’ve had LOTS of ups and downs since I’ve moved here. Thank god for family, and amazing friends to help me through it. Since moving here I got a job singing the best shifts available at the worlds most famous Honky Tonk, with the sweetest band any girl could ask for. I’ve found the best roommates in the world, in a cute, quiet house in a safe area. We are currently building a vegetable garden, and I am making a “sunshine faerie garden”. I’m a little more excited about the sunshine faerie garden than my three guy roommates, but, hey, they’re enthusiastic and help whenever I need it. What more can I ask for? I’ve joined forces with Little Sparrow PR in Australia. I’ve recorded demos of my songs, sent songs off to high profile artists, written with very talented artists on music row, and met some superstars. I’ve performed with Terri Clark live at Tootsies. I’ve found the best places to eat! Started my “Wandering Wednesday’s” live Facebook stream to keep in contact with all my fans. I’ve started recording my new album and spent lots of time in the studio finding my own sound and writing lyrics that are close to me. I can’t wait for you to hear it!

Nashville has been a complete life changer. I’ve experienced heartbreak like I’ve never felt before and also excitement that I never knew existed. The opportunity in this town is incredible. Every day I meet new people who are just as excited as I am about music. It’s a beautiful city and I can’t wait to see what unfolds over the next year.

Thank you for being a part of my journey. I love my fans with all my heart.

Love always,
