In between making cookies with my kids and Christmas shopping, I have been thinking about what an extraordinary year this has been for me. People ask me what I hope to see happening in the future and I tell them it is this moment, today, this journey that I am on – that I am so truly blessed and thankful to be a part of. I am doing what I love to do and having the time of my life. The support I receive from my family, friends and fans means so much to me and I really am grateful to you all.  I don’t know what will happen in 2012 but I am ready for anything and excited to see where the road will take me next.

I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season and a bright, prosperous New Year! 🙂


I was able to receive a time frame of when my Christmas Song video would air on CMT and so today, my daughter and I watched the show Mistletoe Jams on CMT and right after the Joey & Rory video was played, my video came on! I sat there with my cell phone and started taking pictures of the TV screen as the video played just to remember this moment. I had already set up my DVR to record it (LOL) but I was too excited and was snapping away!! It was an amazing feeling and one I will never forget. In addition to CMT, I am happy to report that GAC and TCN are also playing my video to the Christmas Song during their holiday programming.


I can’t believe that  I had the #1 video on CMT.COM. I knew that many country radio stations were playing the Christmas Song already but I was still surprised to see that for a brief moment, my video was #1 on Today’s Top Videos! It was such an honor for me and such an incredible feeling to be on the same list as Toby Keith and Luke Bryan … words alone cannot describe how excited I was to see my name up there and I am so grateful to CMT for giving me this opportunity.
