You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<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>This morning, at our house… (It’s already melted and it’s gonna be like 50 degrees tomorrow so whatever.) #inlikealion #upontheridge  (at Fiddlestar)</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’m still sick so here’s a video of #sirwinstoncup doing what he does best. This represents everything I am and everything I feel right now. Sound up. Definitely, sound up. #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult #sickday (at Fiddlestar)

<p>Here’s a yorkiepommaltepoo for your Saturday. It’s also possibly a Swiffer with feet. My brother and sister-in-law know how to pick ‘em. #artemis #dogsimeetontour #yorkiepom #maltepoo #girldogswithboynames  (at Long Beach, California)</p>

<p>Video poker dream team. I mean, in the sense that for whatever reason, we can only spot the good hands when the other ones are playing. I will never play casino games on a boat in the Pacific Ocean without them. #bluegrasscruise #jacksorbetter #deuceswild #nashvilleacousticcamps #friendswholosetogetherstaytogether  (at Carnival Imagination)</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...
