All quiet on the home front

Thirteen songs rehearsed this week. Wow. That was a good start on the set list. My voice sounds shot…. But it’s not really. That’s the only way to build up that shout singing kind of stamina. ..to push it to the brink of losing it and then rest. And then push it to that point … Continue reading

Best laid plans….

So, my goal all week long has been to go down to rehearsal and hear the band and take pictures to post for the website….  And here it is, Friday, and I have yet to darken the door of the rehearsal hall. On Tuesday morning I took my three year old son, Braden, to the … Continue reading

Two ships passing in the night

Tonight is my second show in Iowa this weekend. This one is with the Des Moines Symphony. My good friend, violinist Ruth McGinnis, flew in from Nashville as my special guest.
