Renewed Spirit

I now have a renewed spirit, as I've found that people really do read blogs, so now I must write as if I have an audience in mind. Really, I thought blogs were helpful for one to get off one’s mind what one must in order to feel a sense of relief. But now I know better, so I am writing for all! I hope that I do not provide information that is mundane and ordinary, for it’s my goal to excite and bring out the spirit of life in all, so here it goes… I’m so enthusiastic about what’s been happening these last few weeks. I have been working with the greatest musicians EVER: Chris Hammann on Bass, Brad Little on Drum, and Larry Ford on Rhythm Guitar. The first day of practice I was astounded by all that was accomplished. These guys were rockin’ it from the get-go. They had met and had themselves in order prior to our first practice together. Talk about professionals!! We are now searching for a fiddler/steel guitarist/keyboardist, and have a young man coming for our next practice to take the lead on guitar. I’m thinking positively as I know he will be wonderful as well!! We have some very important gigs approaching, so we will continue keeping the country jam alive and well in our awesome practice barn. I’ll keep everyone informed as to what will come in the future. In the meantime, thanks guys for giving your all, thanks Mom & Scott for helping with the kids, thanks Deb for continuing to market us and all you do, and thanks friends, family and fans for supporting us!! You're awesome, you are!! So for now, “Country-ROCK ON!

Morgan, Chris, and Larry,

I appreciate very much your comments. Really blogging allows one to unwind and let loose of many of the thoughts that control the mind. I just let things go by writing away and am glad that they are read. So thank you!! Today is an awesome day because I'm able to reflect on past experiences. I don't go too far back simply because I'm unable to remember those experiences that are so long gone. But I do remember yesterday -Saturday, July 30 - and feel very grateful that we found a young man who can play the guitar as one would want one to play, with enthusiasm and professionalism! We've got the right guy, now all we need is to come together, to tighten up, and then focus on a truly entertaining experience for our audience. Having Nick Douglas come aboard brings that spirit to a class-act band!! (Okay, perhaps I'm being a bit facetious. Yeah, Yeah, I'm not quite a class act guys, I know, but I do like to have fun, which is what we need to be a hit, right???) So as we continue down that road to "country-rock" success, I can say this: If no one else appreciates you all, I do!! Thanks for your time, energy, spirit, and talent. It'll all be worth it when we begin playing. Thanks too to the families for their support. That's so necessary!! Okay, now I feel as if I'm writing a script for the CMA awards. So I will write excitedly in the words of a friend, John Mansfield, when I say "Rock On!!!"

Tomorrow I promise to be more interesting.
