That’s Not Something That Happens Every Day #6

I got the master of my song today. I say “my song” but I’m simply the songwriter. Dallas, it was so much fun to watch you work your magic with guitar, bass, backup vocals, and computer. Ali, your sweet voice added so much and I’m glad that we are now “great friends” as you put […]

Dear Fran Drescher #38

Dear Fran, Has it really been over two years since I wrote you? What kind of best friend am I? So much has happened since I last wrote you (about my disastrous surgery) that I hardly know where to start. Since then, I wrote a song, got a rash over half of my body, and […]

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #11

Yesterday, Ken and I toured the Ryman (with the same girl who found the Bluebird Café with us). I knew nothing beforehand about this incredible building built in 1892. I only knew it had been mentioned a couple times in the show “Nashville.” It was an eerie and yet comforting feeling to walk onto that […]

Life Survivorship-10

Two years ago, today, I posted this picture on Facebook and said, “Conquered my fear of jet skis today. That just leaves sharks, heights, cougars, bears, the ocean….” I remember how proud of myself I was that day. I was petrified to get on this “water motorcycle” and I did it anyway. Okay, well, my friend […]

That’s Not Something You See Every Day #14

In my last post, I told you about how excited I was to finally see the Bluebird Café. I must have reminded Ken about twelve times during our fantastic adventure in Nashville—in between all the recording and the music video we did—that I really wanted to see this place for myself. I almost didn’t see […]

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #10

After the flurry and frenzy of recording my song, filming the official music video, and fulfilling Ken’s wish to go see the Country Music Hall of Fame, I finally, finally got around to accomplishing the one and only thing I had on my list of things to do in Nashville (besides the above two things, […]

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #9

Fail #1: Tried to tour the Grand Ole Opry this morning, but we couldn’t get in. Fail #2: Tried to find The Rutledge, where one of my favorite songs “Dream” was recorded by Kenny Loggins and his latest band Blue Sky Riders. We ended up at a dinky café with the same name. Frustrated, I […]

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #8

Ken and I are waiting for the carillon (which is a “set of fixed chromatically tuned bells sounded by hammers controlled from a keyboard,” according to Merriam-Webster) to go off in 2 minutes. What can I say? We are easily entertained.

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #7

After Ken and I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, we went out to dinner with the producer and the vocalist now that the project is done on my end…that and the fact that they are just plain old fun to hang around with. During our meal, they invited me back for a […]
