Recap of July 2011

Hey Everybody,
Hope you've had a great July.  It's been really crazy for me.  I'm still high from the excitement of winning the CM Award for Female Country Artist of the Year.  What an honor and exciting time.  I remember sitting in the audience thinking that this was my third nomination and what if I didn't win this year.  I was so nervous and excited all at the same time and I had no idea because I wasn't asked to perfrom this year and usually they ask the winners to perfrom.  That's probably too much of a tell-tell sign but Omar knew I knew that so I think he really wanted me to be surprised.  It worked!

Even though I didn't perform a lot this month it's been really busy.  Sometimes I wish all I had to do was write songs and show up at the gig but that's not the case for artists who are trying to get their name out and music heard.  It's non-stop trying to get in front of people who don't know who you are so that they can get to know you and your music.  A lot was accomplished this month and I feel really good about where I'm at right now and the opportunities that are being presented. 

All I know is that all of you out there, my super fans and friends, are keeping me on track and grounded.  It's not easy, and when I say that, I know that nobody's life is easy unless they get it handed to them on a silver platter and that's not the case with most folks so when I say it's not easy, I'm not just talking about my goals, dreams and life paths, I'm talking about anyone who goes for it.  It can get crazy and people like to talk about you but you know what?  I'm grounded in the belief that you can accomplish anything you want in life, even if some folks think you can't.  I try to be encouraging to everybody who has a goal or dreams in life because I know what it's like, I'm there trying to reach mine.  So, if you encourage others, they will also encourage you and you'll be surprised at what you can accomplish in a short period of time.  Ok, I'm off my soap box, for now.

I love you all and thank you so much for all you help, love, support and just being here for me along my journey to my dream.

Stay Cool & Lots of Love,
