Be a part in co-producing my DREAM record with some Grammy Award-winning help!
It's been 3 long years since I released a CD and I'm MORE than thrilled to announce that we are FINALLY going back into production on a brand new record! Not only that...but I'm joining forces with Grammy Award-winning songwriter & musician, Jim "Moose" Brown to create this dream album! On top of playing on just about every big country record that's hit radio the last 10 years, he's also written songs for the likes of Martina McBride, Josh Turner, James Otto and a little Alan Jackson/Jimmy Buffet duet that spent 8 weeks at #1 called "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere"! Oh, and did I mention he's been touring with BOB SEGER as part of the Silver Bullet Band the last 10 years?! No biggie, right? Ha! Well, I want to bring my friends & fans alike along for every step of this musical whirlwind, from videos, blogs, and photos to hitting the road on tour...I'm taking you with me, so get ready! But I can't record all of these songs without YOUR help! Watch the video and find out how you can support my new tunes that are just kicking & screaming to be heard and bring them out into the world.

Hire me for your next demo session!
Young but seasoned session singer for the last 7 years, professional & prepared with versitale vocal stylings. I'm looking to promote the fact that when I'm not doing my "artist thaaang", I am keeping busy as a demo singer here in Nashville. Whether you're looking for traditional or contemporary radio country, R&B, jazz, bluegrass, dance/pop, or anything in between...I cover the spectrum. I know my music and I know it well :) I do leads & background vocals and have access to a home studio if need be. Listen to my demo sampler clips on my page and email me if you're interested!

Diary: June 16, 2008
Well, well, well…what can I say?! This month has shaped up to be the best for me so far this year! CMA Festival was SUCH a whirlwind…so busy, so crazy, so FUN, so rewarding, so inspiring! I thank you all from the very bottom of my polish/ghetto/hillbilly heart for making this year’s experience at CMA Music Festival such a great one! I had the best time meeting each and every one of you—talking to you, taking pictures with you, signing autographs for you. It was incredible and definitely just made what I’m doing feel all the more real and inevitable. This industry, this town, can feel like such a JOB sometimes, you know?! You get caught up in the business of it all…but then something like CMA Fest comes along and it puts it all in perspective…it reminds us of why we do what we do! Read all my blogs about the experience on my MySpace page!
So, I’m in week 4 of my boot camp classes at my gym. It’s 4 days a week at 5:30am. Crazy, right?! Well, I’ve been surviving it so far. However, today had a major wipe-out during our run. We ran uphill (mind you, I am NOT a runner) for awhile, then to this park where we did a bunch of drills/sit-ups/push-ups. So after we’re exhausted, soaking wet from crawling around on the wet, newly mowed grass, then COVERED in grass…from head to toe…we run back to the gym, downhill from the park. I definitely tripped somewhere on the sidewalk and wiped out…Scraped up and bruised the palms of my hands and my knees pretty good. Impressive, I know. I’m so hardcore. ;)
Now, in the aftermath of the busy, crazy, thrilling rush of CMA Fest…I’m just trying to recuperate. Finally did my laundry and a little house cleaning the other day! Lord knows when I’ll have time to do THAT again, haha. The dogs are good. My family back home is good (though I WAS a little emo that I couldn’t be there for Father’s Day). Everything is good. We just did a DYNAMITE demo session yesterday where I recorded 3 new songs I wrote and we have another one next week where I’ll probably do another 4! I’ve pretty much got a whole nother album done! Woohoo! Just keeping busy with a lot of co-writes, studio sessions, and SHOWS! Speaking of which…
Don’t miss me next week on Tuesday, the 24th, when the band and I play The Billy Block Show at Cadillac Ranch at 8:30PM. You can catch the show LIVE on the web at www.billyblock.com! Also, will be making my FIRST APPEARANCE at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, GA next Thursday, the 26th! Totally stoked about that one! I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about the venue and already, a lot of fans and friends are telling me they will be there! Can’t wait!
Well that’s all for now.
Nothin but Love! RW
