You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Here’s my handsome husband, now an endorsed player of Preston Thompson Guitars. (Along with the fabulous #jakeworkman and #peterrowan and @chrisluq1) I’m quite proud. And Preston’s guitars are fabulous. Happy New Year! (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>Merry Christmas from these two. Cappy will forever be trying new ways to take selfies and Mur will always be looking over his shoulder making sure she has enough lipstick on. Some things you can count on. I love them. #cappyandmur #christmasspirit  (at Shelter Cove/Lost Coast, California)</p>

<p>We’re trying to figure out a job where we just go around to different stores and bring joy to the lives of weary retail workers because it seems that’s the thing on which we most often get complimented. But I don’t think that’s a real job. Here we are trying out a couch in the Green Hills Mall Z Gallerie. For like an hour. #retailjoy #realjob #christmasspirit  (at Z Gallerie - The Mall at Green Hills)</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...
