You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>The thing about the #nashvillemandolincamp is that if you tell us that you teach better in your Alaskan slippers, we believe you. #mandolin @fsolivan #bluegrass #nashville  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>What a night last night - I got to play with the Grammy nominated Special Consensus as well as CMA Song of the Year writer Larry Cordle and IBMA Songwriter of the year @jonweisberger so yeah, the songs were pretty good, if you were wondering. #songwriter #nashvillesongwritercamp #fiddle  (at Station Inn)</p>

<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>

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...
