For my own Christmas present, I made myself an Apple iPhoto book with pictures from my first year as a touring artist. It's fun to think back on the highlights of the year and how far you can go in only 365 days.
Here are some of the highlights of the year!
First show of the year at Bongo After Hours Theatre in Nashville, and my first time ever playing guitar in public! EEEE! That was a scary time.
My first song to ever be released on iTunes!
My first radio interview and performance on East Nashville Radio
My first music video of an original song!
Headlining a show at my Alma Mater, where I used to watch other Nashville artists come and perform!
The first time Kelly Clarkson ever watched my music video!
My first Writer's Round.
My first (and last) engagement.
Looking back, it's very evident that this year was a lot of first's. I spent a lot of time preparing in advance for these first's, and I'm so happy that I've accomplished so much this year. But, I know I'm not done. It's only the beginning, and I have a lot more work to do. So here's to 2015, the year of making seconds instead of firsts!
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
