Working on the new album! Adding new tour dates!

I can’t wait for y’all to hear my new album!!

I’ve been working hard with my trio in the studio on the new music, and we’re already booking dates into next year, and some will be CD release parties. We’re looking at a tentative street date in March, so keep an eye on my Tour Dates page to watch for shows in your area.

We’ll be releasing a single soon, so watch for news about that, too. We’ll announce things on my facebook music page, so be sure to hop over today and “like” that page, so you can stay up-to-date on all this exciting stuff going on.

I’ve had a blast performing a lot of shows this year so far. I’ve been on stage in many different states and various venues, and I’ve gotten to do repeat shows at some of my favorite places, because they keep asking me back!

I’ve been to the Songbirds Guitar Museum in Chattanooga, the Vineville Music and the Arts series in Macon, Bradfordville Blues Club in Tallahassee, the Hey Hey Bar & Grill in Columbus, the Crimson Moon, the Tunes by the Tracks concert series, WMOT’s Finally Friday show in Nashville, several summer concert series, a coffee house, a garden club, an apple orchard, a Blues Society event, a yacht club, an auditorium, house concerts, and several private events. I’m just takin’ my shows everywhere, letting the fans soak up all the blues/roots/americana/R&B music I can toss at them!

Along the way, my fans are so good to me, showering me with love, and lots of Lay’s potato chips! Look what they did at a recent house concert in Knoxville!

I love my fans. I love my music. And I love my life. I’m so blessed…

Till I see you out there on the road, Keep a song in your heart!

Over the years EG has been nominated for six BMA awards, several Blues Blast awards, has had special guests like Koko Taylor, Ann Rabson, Chuck Leavell, Paul Hornsby and Randall Bramblett on her albums, has had artists from various genres record her songs, had a song on a show on Nick at Nite, has been on A Prairie Home Companion, has toured around the world, has had several albums go to #1, and has produced an album for an Americana artist. She’s shared the stage with some of the best in the biz, and her songwriting savvy has led her to teach songwriting workshops in Italy and Germany.
Her talent is multi-faceted, and she has been called “one of the true blues vocalists”. Sing Out magazine wrote “Kight’s is a voice to be reckoned with, no matter the genre.”
And now EG receives a special award – the Georgia Music Legend Award, which honors people from Georgia who have contributed to the state’s musical heritage.
