WOW! So much has happened in the past month, where to begin. Thanks to everyone who came out to our CD Release parties, we had a great time. After playing the CD release parties Friday and Saturday nights, and a church appointment with Steadfast Sunday night, in a mad dash to get on the road to Nashville for IBMA Monday morning, I neglected to latch the trailer and somewhere between home and fifteen miles down the road (when Valerie noticed the door wasn’t latched), we lost an early 70′s model Martin D-35 guitar that we’d owned since 1980 (when I bought it and gave it to Valerie while we were engaged). Short story happy ending-our homeowners insurance covered the loss and we found a better guitar (although not OUR guitar). Lessons learned-take care, but don’t get attached to material possessions.
We had a great time at IBMA-met tons of people, jammed, performed for industry folks in a showcase, gave away over 100 copies of It’s My Turn to promoters, radio broadcasters; spoke with J.D.Crowe, Carl Jackson, Jimmy Gaudreau, Adam Steffey, Alan Bibey, Tony Rice, and on and on — it was great. Also, I was hired as a correspondent at IBMA for the Bluegrass Blog and wrote a daily column detailing our experiences. All of this activity is fun, but it’s designed to get us a little attention in the bluegrass world so when we call places trying to get booked, they might be familiar at least with our name if not our music.
We’ve added some dates to our calendar, so check out the schedule and come see us sometime. If you haven’t gotten your copy of It’s My Turn, it’s available on Amazon, Napster, and of course here on in our Store.
