Around Nashville in 2 Days! *See what I did there?*

     I'm backkkkkkk!

     If you read my last blog post you'll know that I went to Nashville earlier this week. After a long eight hour drive home yesterday I am currently sitting in my Pj's ready to tell you all about it.
     Monday it was my Dad's birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! I also had a photo shoot with the beautiful and talented Goldy Locks. We had a BLAST. It was overcast and rainy but that didn't stop us. We shot at several locations in town. Between people stopping to look at us, the occasional photobomb, and random downfalls of rain I think we got some amazing shots. I can't wait to be able to share them. Goldy also said that I reminded her of a young Stevie Nicks which made my day. :D

(Fun fact: I did my hair and makeup for the shoot.)

     After that we decided to ride around Franklin for the rest of the evening. Franklin is my favorite place to visit when we go on trips to Nashville. The whole town is super friendly and beautiful. Not to mention they have a Mellow Mushroom, which just so happens to be where we had dinner. Of course while we were eating "No Rain" came on the radio so it made me think of Brad. Monday was just an all around good day.
     The next day we woke up early and went to a meeting. After that, I had my vocal lesson with Brett Manning. That was the most fun vocal lesson I have ever had. The guy is a genius. Not only did I learn a lot about my voice, but I learned a lot about stuff in general. I mean, the guy is literally a genius. Wanna know how to escape a Python's tight grip? Ask Brett. Apparently, they have sensitive skin so you tickle their belly. Wanna know about a part of your brain that you only use when you're praying? Ask Brett. He'll have to explain that one for you haha. Wanna know what bird shouldn't scientifically be able to fly? Ask Brett. He really likes humming birds. You probably get the picture. If you were wondering, I did in fact learn a lot about my vocals, but I payed good money for that so you guys will have to check him out yourselves haha. ;)

     All in all, it was a great trip. I didn't have time to go to any live performances, but there is always next time. Just so you know, I have some gigs coming up so check out my website so you don't miss them! Make sure you follow me on all of my social media sites too in case I book some last minute shows. I love you guys! I'm currently working on some surprises for you all so keep checking back here every once in a while. :)

Just dropping in to say Hi..... Hi!

     It's safe to say I'm still no good at posting regularly on this blog. I'm trying to get my life a little bit more organized so here I am! First blog post of April! Look for at least one more before the end of this month.
     I've got some exciting stuff coming up. Next week I'm making a trip back to good ole Nashville *Insert happy dance here*. I'll be going to do a photo shoot with one of my favorite human beings on the planet,  Goldy Locks. I worked with her about a year and a half ago and loved it! She's the one who took these beautiful pictures that I've been using for promo (Plus they ended up on

     Fun fact: When I first shot with her it was on my Mom's birthday. This time it will be on my Dad's birthday. :D 

     The next thing I'll be doing is a vocal lesson with Brett Manning. Words can't express how excited I am for that. I've already had one lesson with him plus I use his Singing Success Cd's. Come this summer your jaw is gonna drop thanks to my kick butt vocal skills (probably not but hey at least I have confidence!).

     While I'm in Nashville I'll probably look for some songwriter nights. Who knows, I may end up at the Bluebird. One thing I love about Nashville is when you're not trying so hard it is actually a beautiful and fun place to be. I've found with my past trips you don't need to stress over meeting the right people or being better than everyone else. Sometimes you just need to enjoy the moment and the music. Which is exactly what I'm gonna do!

     I hope you are all doing well! Sending hugs and kisses your way! xx
