I just returned from an action packed week involving performances, appearances and interviews at the 2013 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee. This was my first time at the CMAfest and it could not have been more rewarding, more exhausting or more fun! I began the week participating in the Kick Off Parade – riding in the back of a red Silverado! I ended the week signing autographs at the Chevrolet booth that took an hour to clear. I never imagined folks would wait that long just to meet me and I have to say it was very flattering.
It’s hard to describe what the CMA Festival is like – it’s sort of a Disneyland for Country music lovers! Everyone is having a ball, artists and fans alike.
I performed a set at CMR Nashville's 3rd Annual International Acoustic Show at the Whiskey Bent Saloon and fans really seemed to like my live interpretation of my new single, "I Guess That Says It All." A live acoustic performance video of the single can be seen HERE.
I also did a set at the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau Stage and a set at the CHEVROLET Roadhouse Acoustic Stage both of which drew a large number of international fans. It was great to be able to connect with so many people, and get immediate positive feedback on how much they liked my music. Nothing is more rewarding than that!
Interspersed between performances I did interviews with television, radio and print outlets and had a chance to stop by the studios of Zuus (formerly TCN) to offer a personal thank you for keeping my debut Country video, Dream On Savannah, in their rotation. The clip is also posting good numbers on YouTube with over 200,000 views to date. It's touching how many emails I've received from young girls who heard me sing the song last week. It has a powerful message that is really reaching people and that is so gratifying.
I’m already making plans to return to Nashville for the 2014 CMA Music Festival, you should too!
Thanks, as always, for your support.

I hope you all are having a great summer. I just wanted to share some exciting news. My latest single, Dream On Savannah, from my new EP, Let It All Begin, has just been released to country radio and early reviews have been great. I’m so excited about this song. It really captures the essence of who I am and the obstacles and doubt I've had to overcome in high school and later in my life when I decided to pursue a career in music. I hope the song touches you the same way it touches me, please enjoy.
Please stop by my website www.JoannaMosca.com if you want to hear the new song! The song is also available for purchase on I-tunes.
I also wanted to let you know that I’ll be making an announcement about the official release of my new EP in the days to come, stay tuned.
Thanks, as always, for your support! Happy Summer, Joanna
