You Can be a FiddleStar

I post things about fiddling. And how we can all be better at it.

<p>Somehow, all the eggs got thrown away #dontask and since I had already made big promises to some of my favorite people about late night camp cookies, we had to improvise. Mayonnaise is made of eggs and the oil creates crispy edges so it wasn’t just a successful substitution, it was a damn triumph. Also green sprinkles on #stpatricksday for the extra win and polaroids to commemorate the whole experience. #nashvilleflatpickcamp #nashvilleacousticcamps #chocolatechipmayonnaisecookies (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>Coming to the end of a long and beautiful weekend. We’re all a little tired but we’re a lot inspired and full of laughs and memories. And chocolate chip mayonnaise cookies. #itsalongstory #nashvilleflatpickcamp #nashvilleacousticcamps #martinguitar #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult #squishyfacecrew  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

Molly Tuttle plays her very first tune on her brand new @thompsonguitars sitting next to Preston Thompson, surrounded by admiring #nashvilleflatpickcamp campers. These are the good times, in our living room. #nashvilleacousticcamps #flatpicking #billyinthelowground #edgy @molly_tuttle (at Fiddlestar)

<p>I will never not love these guys. They’ve been with us since the beginning of #nashvilleflatpickcamp and my heart just gets all warm and fuzzy when they show up. It’s a beautiful day here in Ridgetop, TN and I’m having one of those “I can’t believe we get to do this for a living” kind of moments. #nashvilleacousticcamps #flatpick #thefamilyyouchoose #billsnyderstillnevergoestoclass (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>We had to spend a little time at the vet today. #sirwinstoncup turned 12 yesterday so, as you can imagine, sometimes he gets a bit stove up in his neck and back and needs a little extra TLC. He’s already on the mend though, so don’t you worry. Handsome and distinguished, that’s my man. #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult  (at Greenbrier-Springfield Animal Hospital)</p>

<p>@adamspickoftheday and I support @bonapartesretreat and their amazing work with all the good puppers and doggos. Today I got to meet Panda (pictured) and several other perfect and adoptable dogs that have been rescued by Bonaparte’s Retreat. They were hosting a meet and greet at @orvisnashville and they gave away delicious treats and handsome kerchiefs (#sirwinstoncup says thank you!) and @ashbyfrank and I had an awesome time meeting everyone. #adoptdontshop #theyreallgooddogsbrent #seniorpupsaturday #dogsimeetinnashville (at Orvis)</p>

I am excited to embark on a new chapter of my working life - I recently gave my notice to the Pam Tillis organization and will no longer be touring with her or Lorrie Morgan (on their awesome Grits and Glamour Tour). I must admit, I'm sad to be leaving. It's been an incredible four years and I have learned so much. Thanks to Pam, her amazing husband/manager Matt Spicher, and my bandmates, especially the lovely and talented Mary Sue Englund, with whom I spent more time over the last few years than I did with my husband. And I wouldn't trade a minute of it...
