You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Foam is still a thing. Don’t hate. Especially when it’s shrimp bisque foam and Sean Brock is responsible. Also, there are beets and beautiful strawberries under those leaves and all of this was ridiculously good. #anniversarydinner #husknashville #seanbrock #shrimpandgrits #nashville #foodspotting  (at Husk Nashville)</p>

<p>Today we went to the vet. #busterkeaton had a few ticks and certainly that’s to be expected because he’s an outside cat but otherwise he was very healthy and might I say, extremely agreeable. He also enjoyed exploring the entire exam room and generally looking handsome. We’re going to work on our tick prevention this summer though, just to be safe. #blackandwhitecat #manabouttown  (at Greenbrier-Springfield Animal Hospital, Inc.)</p>

<p>And then we got pie. Mur got blueberry and I got key lime again. I’m going to have to go to Dallas again to try a different kind of pie but I don’t know if I’d be able to bring myself to do it. That is the finest key lime pie in all the land. For reals. If you know of a finer one, you come here with it. #pie #motherdaughterroadtrip #shannonhuntgraduates #Dallas #bishopartsdistrict  (at Pie Emporium)</p>

<p>Here’s that beautiful bridge I mentioned earlier. My mom and I have been lucky enough to see #calatrava bridges and buildings in several countries and a few states. You can always spot them a mile away. Thanks to @mancamama for introducing so many of us to his work. It has enriched my life. #Dallas #motherdaughterroadtrip #shannonhuntgraduates  (at Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge)</p>

<p>The Grand Prairie Academy of Fine Arts staged a little pop up dance performance at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge today. These beautiful girls in front of a beautiful bridge - it was quite a scene upon which we stumbled… Good on you Dallas. #calatrava #gpfaadance #dallas #margarethunthillbridge  (at Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge)</p>

<p>My mom and I saw this car in Texas today. She said “That thing looks so stupid! Like one of those bears. A koala bear!” And I said, “You mean a panda bear?” And she said, “Yes! A panda bear! That’s it.” And then she called it Stupid Panda Car for the next 20 miles while laughing hysterically. I love these trips. #motherdaughterroadtrip #shannonhuntgraduates #pandacar  (at Frisco, Texas)</p>

<p>And here… Shannon Hunt has been a magnificent student. She’s funny, kind, and loves the fiddle in all forms. She has a super crush on Texas Shorty, can play an Ed Haley tune, and knows how to back up a singer in all keys. The fiddling world is safe for another long while. Congratulations on your graduation @oldskoolmusik You are a treasure in our lives. #shannonhuntgraduates #motherdaughterroadtrip #legacychristianacademy  (at Stonebriar Community Church)</p>

<p>Ok, so she might be super cool, but the Ray Wylie show at @billybobstexas was a little loud for her. Good music, just a lot of it. #subtle #motherdaughterroadtrip #ftworth #shannonhuntgraduates  (at Billy Bob’s Texas)</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...
