You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>It was pretty hot and humid on our walk today. #frogdog #sirwinstoncup #bostonterrier #flatnosedogsociety  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>We went to see our awesome friend @cntsongs play the fiddle on Broadway tonight and she’s right back there. Squint. Fiddle chicks gotta stick together. #fiddlechicks #fiddle #nashvillenights  (at Margaritaville, Nashville)</p>

He did it! I’m not saying he loved it. I don’t think we can go that far. But we can say he didn’t hate it and that his little doggy paddle instincts kicked right in once he hit the water. Nine and a half years old and swimming for the very first time - today was a good day. #bostonterrier #oldhickorylake #bostonsofinstagram #flatnosedogsociety (at Old Hickory Lake and Beach)

<p>Getting ready to play at the @bluebirdcafetn with the incredible songwriter @kimmcleanmusic There’s a first time for everything. The place is full and I know most of the songs. Let’s do this thing. #fiddle #mandolin #nashvillenights #nashville #thebluebird  (at The Bluebird Cafe)</p>

<p>Good times and good music at @timruddell and Ali’s housewarming party this afternoon. As I am still relatively new to old time music, I really enjoyed the opportunity to play with some of my favorite musicians and people. I learned about 15 great new tunes. I already remember none of them. #oldtimeishard #fiddle #warmingthehouse  (at Historic Old Hickory Village)</p>

<p>Bonus of this contest - a really sweet old man just walked by with a giant bag full of the most delicious golden cherry tomatoes I’ve ever eaten. They made a nice side dish to my #paleo snack bags. #beefjerky #eatingpaleoontheroad  (at Bluegrass Along The Harpeth)</p>

<p>Repost from @m_mize who always seems to grab nice pictures of me in the short time I’m on stage. Thanks! Here’s today’s good news/bad news… Good News: I won! Bad News: I won the Senior Division. For the record I’m 41. I have neither an AARP membership not do I get discounts on car rentals. #notasenior #fiddle #fiddlecontest #bluegrassalongtheharpeth  (at Bluegrass Along The Harpeth)</p>

<p>The evening constitutional. No filter because why would you. #sirwinstoncup looks backwards as if to say, “why are we stopping?” I understand. Let’s go see what’s down the road… #bostonterrier #bostonsofinstagram #bostonterriercult #summernights @thebostonterrierlove  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</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...
