I apologize for the delay in sending out regular newsletters. My father always told me, "Don't get too many irons in the fire.", but in this modern music business, it seems one has to keep every iron in every fire, stoking each one every day. That being said, I am really excited to share some news with you!
In September, I was asked to participate in a project called TRIO Live organized by a book publisher, Working Title Farm. TRIO is the brain child of author, Shari Smith (I Am A Town). Shari selects a book and gives it to a songwriter and a visual artist who each create a piece inspired by the book. The books she selected for me was a new release due Jan 2, 2018 called steal away home written by Billy Coffey. The song I wrote is called "Dandelion" and it's available for purchase on my Store page:
Billy is an exceptional storyteller. Steal away home is his 9th book. Please read Billy's works and visit his website >> Billy Coffey

If you haven't heard already, Radney Foster has a new CD and a new book of short fiction as a companion piece to each song called "For You To See The Stars" that released Sept 15. I'm very excited and proud to have played and sang on his new album. The album has debuted in the top 25 on the Americana charts and continues to climb the charts. We just shot a video for the song "Greatest Show On Earth" which should be available to view very soon. Also, make sure you catch us live - we are touring heavily in support of the new book and CD, and have shows coming up in Dallas, San Antonio, Columbus, Chicago, Indianapolis, Nashville, Beaumont, Baton Rouge, Houston, Lindale, Plano, and many, many more.
