What an amazing whirlwind my life has been the last few months. It has been quite a roller coaster ride. In August I was in the hospital thinking I may not make it through the medical situation I was in, finances were rough and I lost a dear friend in a motorcycle accident. Now here it is just a couple months later and I am still broke but I am getting ready to go to Nashville tomorrow to pick up my second CMA award and be on TV on the CMA Awards Show Wednesday night.

I thank my family for putting up with me working the odd hours I do and being my support system and of course YOU for being with me every day and letting me do what I love with people I love. I am so lucky to have Todd and Susan to play with each day and to get to share a studio with D, Charley and Dave as well. We have a great crew here and I am proud to represent us this week in Nashville. My chest will be swelled with pride as I stand on that stage and have Thompson Square hand me that beautiful trophy. I appreciate it so much more this time knowing how rare it is and how much work it takes to get there. Thank you for sharing this moment with me. I am so proud of what we do here at K99 and you are a huge part of this family. Let savor this victory together.
