With Jon out of the hospital and fully recovered (can you say miracle?!?) tonight we debuted the song we wrote together – “Years from Now” – at Puckett’s Rising Star singer-songwriter contest. And guess what? We won the crowd vote!!! There was a ton of super talented songwriters there so we were really excited for the chance to perform and hear everyone else. We’ll be competing in the semi-finals at Puckett’s Boat House on July 23rd!

I’m really proud to announce that my first record, “The World Is Ending”, is available for purchase and download at CD Baby. Soon it will be available on iTunes, Amazon and some other retailers. I’ll keep you posted on where you can get it. Thank you to everyone who made this record possible (there’s a bunch of you in the liner notes!).

I wrote this song with Jon Latham a few months ago. He’s a great guy and a musical genius. I’m lucky to call him my friend. He moved up here yesterday and I’m looking forward to introducing him to Nashville.
Jon’s moving up here Sunday. I’m literally jumping for joy over this. I love playing music with him and can’t wait to introduce him to Nashville. It does present a dilemma though! He will effectively take over playing “Izzy” – my Taylor 314ce – and leave me guitar-less. (Is that a word? Should be.)
I’m currently drooling over this…the Taylor 614ce-N…. Seriously, click on the link…it is BEAUTIFUL. My parents are cruel, however (looking at you, mom), and won’t let me buy it until I have 1,000 likes on my facebook page. So please – like the page – share the page with your guitar loving friends — feel my pain!!!
As you may know, I love love LOVE guitar picks. My favorites so far are are from John Paul White of The Civil Wars (Braves game) and Jason Mraz (Jingle Jam). Now I’m getting my own from Clayton USA. Aside from being excited about having picks with my face on them (haha), I was really happy with how easy they were to order. Their custom designer was super easy to use and best of all – they are FAST!!! I’ve seen companies that take 4-6 weeks to ship custom picks. Mine will be here in less than a week. WHAT?!? Here’s a screen shot from my order. Now you go get some too. We can trade next time we see each other. :)
We’re headed to Kennesaw, GA where Jon Latham and I are playing a show at Electric Cowboy. This is our first time playing there and we’re really excited to perform and make some new friends. Georgia <3!
