You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Finished tracking the Christmas album today with @marysueenglund and we are so excited to share it with all of you. @brandonbostic is the bee’s knees and we made him do all the hard work. Ha. Truthfully though, Mary Sue and I may see Christmas differently from each other, or differently from you, but we chose each song to express how inclusive we want the entire season to be. Let’s bring people together instead of tearing each other apart. #allyearlong  (at Root Note Studios)</p>

<p>Happy birthday to my husband. He loves babies, dogs, heavy metal, football, NASCAR, and his family. He’s funny when you least expect it and he’s full of great ideas. He’s a talented musician but he also works hard at it, which is really more impressive when you think about it. He got to spend the day with his flatpick campers which is his happy place so that makes me happy. He deserves the happiest of birthdays.  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>“It’s perfect for this slot head I built!” One of our flatpick campers who also happens to be a luthier, loves his new @daddarioandco NS Micro Tuner. Here he is using it in the studio, one of the unique features of #nashvilleflatpickcamp Thanks D' />

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...
