I’m 30,000 feet in the air and thought what a great time to write about what’s been happening these past few months. But before I go into detail, I first want to thank EVERYONE for the incredible support you have given me. The journey I am on is one that I do not take for granted and the support from fans across the globe means the world to me so I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Living the life I have been living recently almost seems like a dream. I have traveled across the United States and have visited over 40 states so far! I have met some incredible people and have seen some beautiful cities. Every time I visit a different state, I say to myself “Wow, this would be a great place to live”, but then its off to another city and I find myself saying the same thing about that city. I feel so blessed to be doing what I love and I hope you are enjoying the music with me. I am happy to announce I recently became a member of the Academy of Country Music and can’t wait to start voting on the ACM Awards! I also met some of my all time favorite country artists on my travels these few months. I finally met Charlie Daniels, who was so incredibly sweet to me. I hung out with Tracy Lawrence in Nashville and helped him with his Turkey Fry for the Homeless. Bucky Covington, The Roys and a bunch of the Tennessee Titan football players were there too. We really had a great time – even though I never fried a turkey before, I can tell you that I am a PRO now! Haha!
I also released my latest single “Somebody’s Baby” as well as the music video to this song. The first time I heard this song, I felt a real connection to the lyrics because it immediately made me think of my two children and how I will ALWAYS consider them to be “my baby”. I’m glad we were able to put this song on my upcoming “Somebody’s Baby” EP which will be released on December 4th. I added the music video to the EP as well, which I thought would be a bit different from the other CDs I’ve released in the past. This week, the song has jumped (6) spots to #54 on the Billboard charts! I am so excited and keeping my fingers crossed that the song will break into the Top 40! (Insert happy dance right here).
Anyway, I’m really looking forward to heading back home for Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for and want to say again, THANK YOU to everyone who is following along with me on this journey and a great big THANK YOU to my amazing husband and children. Without their support and faith in me, this journey would not happen. I couldn’t do it without them and certainly couldn’t do it without you, the fans. I hope you and your families had a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving and I will touch base again with you all soon.
