Does It Get Crazier Than This??!!

 It's been awhile since I've posted anything so let me explain why...February saw the Steel Magnolia CD release event in NYC and I on a last minute decision I headed out for a great 3 days of the Big Apple and a fantastic release to a great album at the Bowery Ballroom.

March came and went in a flurry...Nashville writing trip and then directly off to Phoenix, Arizona for a Song Factory/Super 98 Writing Retreat...wrote a bunch of great songs with great writers and got to visit the Biltmore Hotel (the lobby is where Irving Berlin wrote "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas)...our hosts, Jim and Rae Kaufman have an incredibly beautiful home in an incredibly beautiful area of Phoenix and spoiled us way TOO much (if that's possible!!) It was hard to go home to Wisconsin to cold weather.  Ohh that's right I didn't go home...I went back to Nashville as I was hired to plan a red carpet premiere for a reality TV show that was filmed in Coffee County, TN.  That's a whole other story..lol :)

But then I did return to the frozen tundra...to Haley's 3 on 3 basketball tournament and the Crivitz School Music & Mocha night where she played her guitar and sang the song she wrote last summer in Nashville, "Fallin' For You" (co-writers Dee Briggs & Nicole Johnson).  She was really good and that's not just a proud mom talking...she had a lot of sweet compliments from students and parents.  Pretty good for her very first Crivitz performance!!!!

Right now I'm currently sitting in a coffee shop in Winchester, TN (hey, I'm sitting in a coffee shop in Coffee County, TN..ok I AM a little over tired!)  Getting the last details together for the red carpet event this Thurs (4/7).  This is a beautiful little town with an old fashioned theatre in a lovely town square where we'll have an "old Hollywood" themed premiere viewing of the pilot episode of "Doc Star" and then go next door to John T's BBQ for a real down home taste of Tennessee.  This is a huge event with a very cool roster of artists, entertainers and film industry attendees.  I am so honored to have been a small part of this event!
  
I will go home for a few days...for some family time and see Haley's spring concert and then back here for a writing trip.  Hectic but all very, very good!!

Meg & Josh (Steel Magnolia) had a wonderful walk down the red carpet at the ACM awards last week.  They were nominated for two awards...didn't win this year but as Scott Borchetta loves to tell them about their career..."...it's not a sprint, it's a marathon"  and they are definitely in it for the long haul!!!!!

Wheeeewwww!!! That wraps it up and hopefully explains my lack of bloggable moments :)  Thanks to all of you the new people who have contacted me and to everyone who's kept in touch...I really do appreciate all the support and kind words of encouragement.  I know how blessed I am to be doing this with the people I'm doing it with.

Here's to a great summer (Wisconsin will get one eventually...right!!!)
