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!

My new album is on the charts! Peach Pickin’ Mamas in Muncie, and Chattanooga CD release party!

Hello everybody!

I just wanted to post an update to let you know how my new album is doing. It came out last week and it landed at #1 on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 for the state of Georgia! And now it’s #16 on the Top 50 Blues Album chart! And the song “Holdin’ On’” debuted at #32 on the Top 50 Blues Song chart! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with the news!

And it’s getting lots of great reviews and quite a bit of airplay.  Thanks to all of you in radio who are helping to spread my music around, and to the media for helping get the word out!

I had a wonderful CD release party at the Cox Capitol Theatre in Macon, Georgia last Friday. The theatre was full and the folks connected, and gave us what we needed to put on our best show.  Thanks to my special guests, Diane Durrett, Paul Hornsby, and Gregg Brooks for adding so much to our show.  My band, The Blue South Band, was on their A game, and it was an exciting night!

Here’s a video of Gregg Brooks with me and my Blue South Band. It was an emotional performance, and I was so glad that Gregg felt well enough to join us. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=800513933302464

Now, I’m on to Muncie, Indiana to meet up with Lisa Biales to perform our “Peach Pickin’ Mamas” show next Tuesday.  We always have a ball and laugh a lot. Lisa is such a sweetheart to sing with, and I look forward to every show we do together.

After Indiana, I’ll be heading to Chattanooga to meet up with my Blue South Band for another CD release party at Chattanooga Billiards East in the Tropicana Room on October 4th.  I’ll be looking for all my friends and fans in that area to come out and hear my band and all the new songs!

On the road again! And taking photos for Domestic Violence Prevention video!

Hey Everyone!

Last Saturday night I performed at a house concert for Mike and Marcia Adams, and let me tell you – we had an EXTRA larj time! I love doing house concerts because I’m literally just a few feet away from my audience. And what a great crowd this was! I was treated like a queen, and even had a few musicians sit in with me. The same thing happened a while back at Karen Claypool’s house concert. You never know what could happen at one of these events. It’s nothing but having a little party in your living room!

In between gigs, I’ve been doing a lot of songwriting, on some deep subjects. And one of them is a song that I started thinking about when I came home from the hospital a few years ago, after a life-threatening illness. It talks about how quickly our lives can change, and how we have to hold on…

My band has been working real hard with me on some new songs and we’ve been in the studio once already. They’re naturally tearing it up! We’ll be going back in real soon, and I can’t wait! I’m the luckiest singer on the planet, to get to work with Ken Wynn, Gary Porter, Johnny Fountain, and Mike Harrell. I’d put them up against any band out there!

I hope to see you all soon in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Marietta and Douglas, Georgia. I’m doing a solo and a couple of band shows, so you know I’ll be having a ball! I always enjoy being with my friends at the Tropicana Room in Chattanooga, and I haven’t been to Darwin’s in Marietta in a long time. It’ll be good to be back on their stage. And the boys and I are gonna let it fly at the Bikes, Blues & BBQ Festival in Douglas. Bring your friends and come on out to see us!

Last week I took photos of Kim Kight, my cousin who was the victim of domestic violence a few years ago. These pictures will be part of a video for the group Break the Silence against Domestic Violence, which should be seen nationally before long. Kim will be speaking, telling her story of survival, at an event in Atlanta on March 8th. Here’s a video that tells more about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDqn9wErS9M&feature=youtu.be.

Thanks for checking in with me on my blog, and for always supporting my music and my photography.

I can’t wait for you to hear the new songs! I’ll keep you posted on how the new album’s coming along.

Here’s my latest photo of me and Sweetie, taken on Valentine’s Day.

Keep a song in your heart!
