Well...I'm back from my honeymoon! I guess I could blog about that, but I feel like I've been all about getting married and not about the music lately. So, now that I'm back from the honeymoon, I've been hitting the ground hard with the music. In fact, I already wrote a new song yesterday!
We also have some more shows coming up. The first show we'll play this summer is at Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta opening up for Ricky Gunn on 7/9. I accepted the offer to open for Ricky because I already knew of him from watching his music video on CMT...and when people are on TV- you open for them! However, since I've been kind of out of it with the wedding planning, I waited until we got back from the honeymoon to put the band together.
As most of you know, my viola player and background vocalist, Katherine Holmgren, left me high and dry to move to....Kansas. I know. I don't know why Kansas would be more appealing than Nashville....but moving on...I'm not upset at all at losing a crucial part of our band. So, I figured the guitar player we had been playing with could at least still do it...but he informed me he'll be on vacation. So, I texted my plan B. My plan C. I texted a piano player. I texted my plan D. I texted my piano player plan B. And so on and so forth, times a million. NO ONE can do the show! I thought when I moved to Nashville I could throw a rock and hit a guitar player. But apparently, they're all gone. Why did I even move here? I'd probably have better luck finding a guitar player in Kansas!
But alas, when you have no one to turn to, you can always turn to family. Luckily my brother sings and plays guitar, so he'll be performing with me 7/9. He lives in Atlanta though. Maybe I should move there?
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
