Hello out there! Hope you are all having a fantastic year so far! Its been a year of joy and pain for me thus far. The joy part being that I’m building a house with the love of my life, taking the time to learn as much and do as much of the work that we can. The pain part being that I’m not really cut out for construction work so my body has new aches and pains daily. I was hoping to have my new album done by now and ready for summer but its not looking too good. I have about 80% of it complete, but just need to add some special touches and some new material to make it complete. Please be patient, it will be worth it, I promise!
I hope to see all of you out this year at a show! I have a schedule full of exciting concerts of everything from just me to jamming some great duos and playing with several local bands , The Blue Mustangs and Colby Acuff Band. I am blessed to be in such great company and be able to make my living here in the beautiful Inland Northwest. Thanks so much for the support and see you on the road!!
Thanks to everybody that helped make this last summer the best I can remember! I know that I’m very lucky to make a living doing something I love so much. It almost doesn’t seem right sometimes because I was raised to think that a “job” was something that should be hard and frustrating with no rewards other than a paycheck. I’m living proof that if you follow your heart and your passion for what makes you feel complete, that you really can make a living doing it. It seems so simple, yet people still get up every morning and trudge to a job that sucks the life out of them when they should be thriving in the prime of their life. A friend told me long ago that the only thing standing in the way of what I want to be is me. I shrugged this off for many years, thinking I would never get in the way of myself and my progress as a person. Boy was I wrong! Looking back, I made excuse after excuse to justify why I was a failure and almost convinced myself that I wasn’t good enough to do what I really wanted to do in life. Now, thanks to an incredible community that has welcomed me and supported my endeavors as a musician, I feel like a king everyday! So again, Thanks so much to all the great venues, booking agents, wedding planners and event coordinators that decided to make me a part of their program this year. I am eternally grateful and I look forward to many more years of providing music for those that enjoy it!
