Big thanks to Mary Brace for recording “I Talk to God”, a song I wrote a while back with friends Lauren Sanders and Doak Turner. It’s the title cut to Mary’s new record. It is now available for streaming on Spotify and should be available for purchase elsewhere soon. Check it out!
How in the world did this happen to me??!! It’s a little hard to say–but I’ll give it a shot.
Loving-kindness is how this happened to me. Angels conspired to allow me to play on the most famous stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry, on February 27, 2016. People, many people, care so much about me and have offered assistance left, middle, and right. But in this case, they went over the top and put all of the pieces together–and voila, here I am sharing “The Safest Place I Know” with 3,000 or so of my closest friends.
ARK Project Now, The Kind Cake, YouInspire.org, The Opry, Mickey Guyton, Greg and Alisa Bieck, how can I ever thank you enough.
So much has gone on in the past few months. I hope to be able to put it into words–it has simply been overwhelming.
Looking forward to sharing more with you soon.
Thanks for visiting.
It has been quite an amazing time in the studio with Jordan Lawhead, Greg Bieck, and some incredible musicians. There’s a new album in the works. Hoping you will get a smile and some inspiration from this lyric video just put together.
Oh so deep are the questions
Oh where will the spark lead?
To color, to hope, to rainbows, to The Name
Had a great write this morning with Elizabeth Marlowe and friends over at Rare Spark, then a jam with Kelsey K in the afternoon. Pretty whooped!
I am very excited to be playing with Kelsey K, Aaron Barker, Ruby Locknar, and Blake Chaffin at The Listening Room, 217 2nd Ave S, Nashville, TN 37201. Kelsey and I have been writing for a few years now. She is a bonifide star. I have not played with Aaron, Blake, or Ruby, but I know they are going to bring it! Hope to see you there.
Thanks to the band WYATT, “Roll the Windows Down” has been released as a single to Canadian radio.
Robert K. Wolf co-wrote the song with SB21 Music Publishing songwriters Kris Bergsnes, Jacob Martin, and Phil Roselle. Steve Pasch, SB21 president, immediately saw the potential. The song rocks with reminiscing about great times driving in the country, living fast and young. It’s getting great response with its infectious rhythm and anthemic melody.
“Roll the Windows Down” can be purchased on iTunes Canada.
WYATT is also entered in CBC’s Song of the Summer contest – please vote for the song here.
Pretty soon I’ll be off to Berry Hill to get in the writer’s room with my friend E Marlowe. We’ve only known each other about a year, but we go way back. With some folks you just know this.
If I think of what my top songs are these days, invariably E collaborations are right up there. It’s been a bit of a challenge for me, but some new tunes have crept in to my performances–and I’m hoping to feel solid on some that she and I have done. One of my faves is from the female perspective, so that becomes somewhat of a challenge. But occasionally I can get into that headspace.
If you’re around and about, this evening I’ll be at The Commodore Grille in Nashville, with Jamie Jo and Harlan Pease. We’ll be doing a round at about 8:30 pm.
It would be wonderful to see you.
Off to practice. 🙂
I am so thankful to have shared the stage at The Bluebird Cafe with E Marlowe, Elliot Collett, Jon McElroy, and Leah Blevins. Packed house and good vibes and music all around!
Pretty soon there should be some new music up. I hope you will check it out.
There will be a couple of more gigs in May – the Shows page and the schedule to the right should set y’all straight on the where and when.
See you soon!
