Thanks To All!!


Thanks so much to those of you who came out in support of me for the Nashville North Kountry Idol contest!! I truly appreciate your support, as I know it was a nice day and you could've been working out in the yard, riding 4-wheelers, going to the park, drinkin' beer, etc. Instead, you came to support me! I truly, truly thank you from the bottom of my heart! As you saw and heard, there were several talented artists competing, all deserving of the title. Simply having the opportunity of getting to know the other contestants, T & T and the DYNAMITE COWBOYS (Wow, could they play!), as well as the owners of Nashville North, both of whom were very nice, always going of of their way to make us feel welcome! It was simply a great opportunity to share my talent with those a little bit north of my neck of the woods! Thanks so much!Lori

Nashville North's Kountry Idol Contest

Now that I've had my first experience with an "idol" contest, I feel a little more self-assured about all that goes on during the backstage interaction. My initial perception of this contest was that twelve people would come together to show their stuff on stage. Interestingly, the people came together, communicated, really became bonded in a very short time. We told stories of experiences, had several laughs, and when all was said and done and the ones who advanced were announced, the sadness came -- the realization that some would not return, some of whom were extremely talented, indeed. What a great experience! It truly reminds me of the time I ran for Miss Calhoun County and came in nearly last. It changed me forever -- for the better, however, because I became convinced that I was not a "last place" sort of gal. The learning experience, the meeting of people, the discoveries that came along with coming in last truly helped to mold me in to the person I am today. I hope others can share with me moments of discovery that helped to mold them and have created a sense of self-awareness that helped them along the way of life!! Please share away...
