Wow, I just can’t believe that my single record release of “Nashville” has remained on an important chart for six months; I’m feeling so grateful! “Nashville” entered the Mediabase Activator Chart in July, landing in this Top 40 Chart in the Top 200, steadily arriving at “#35,” with a bullet this week! I’m feeling blessed that I’m just one of the handful of Country Artists on this prestigious, mostly Pop Superstar Chart. This is definitely progress for us!Read more
Well, I just can’t contain my excitement about working on projects for you, and yes, there are many! However, I will try, as hard as I can, to focus on just a few for your update this time.
But first, I’d like to comment on how much my family and I are enjoying the cooler temperatures.I feel so energized to work and be creative.Again, I’m feeling a nudge from God to get to work!
So now, we’re preparing for the Christmas release of my second inspirational children’s book, “Counterfeit Country Queen Jesus & Nashville Calling.” Officially, we’ll be having a small gathering of family and friends around Thanksgiving to celebrate the second book’s release, what a blessing!Sometimes God has a perfect timing in mind for us, if we just will take the time to listen.Since the book is primarily about how Jesus has directed my life and career path, a Christmas release just feels right.Read more
It’s a sunny, warm, beautiful day at my house and I’m overjoyed to be back in touch with you!My family and I have been challenged with a few bumps in the road, but are completely on the sunny side of that now, thanks to God and all of you!
Yes, God is so good and He is always there to bring us completely through any storms that we may encounter, what a blessing!And, I’m also grateful to all of you for your great friendship and support . . . you are always there, too and you mean so much to me!Read more
ONCE AGAIN I’M HONORING & REDEDICATING MY SONG “THE AUCTION” TO OUR AMERICAN FARMERS
I’m hoping that you’re enjoying the warm days of summer, maybe having extra time to relax, be outdoors, and have special fun times with your family and friends.We were blessed to have part of our family come for a visit during the 4th of July Week; we had so much fun catching up, and of course, eating delicious summer food!
I love all the things that summer brings, thanking God for lots of sunshine, longer days, more time to spend with family and friends, for outdoor events, beautiful flowers, and delicious, farm-fresh vegetables and fruits.That’s why I once more want to honor and rededicate my song, “The Auction,” to our American Farmers, who are the “backbone” of our great country. I appreciate the service that they provide for all of us and the sacrifices they make to put food on our tables every day, thanks so much!Read more

I love spring, with daffodils now in full bloom in our yard and everywhere, landscaping is turning green and suddenly, we’re blessed with many days of beautiful sunshine.All of this is certainly giving me renewed energy and a great sense of excitement, especially with all of the great things happening with my music and personally, knowing that some of our family will be here with us for Easter.
It is also very exciting that my “Visions (remix)” Video has been viewed by over a quarter of a million people all over the world so far (between Facebook & YouTube), in a very short period of time. It was my goal this year to release the song and video around Easter because of its powerful and hopeful message.I hope that you’ll continue to watch and share the video with everyone close to you, here’s the LINK.Read more
