(I’m really digging the cut and past DIY tour poster thing)

We pulled the van into the studio parking lot immediately following my May tour with Belle and Bryce and started recording harmonies for the new record (as I type this, my cosmic sister, Megan Nash is finishing up the final ooos and ahhhs in and around Belle’s – the light is at the end of the tunnel).

I hopped in and out of radio stations across The Prairies, played everything from coffee shops and honky tonks to barns and quonsets (it’s a Saskatchewan term) and grew my list of people that are near and dear to me. When we weren’t in hotel rooms we stayed with friends and family, enjoying the few days off. I use the term “days off” loosely as I’m in the midst of tracking the single to Canadian Country, Campus, Community, and College. It’s paying off – we made the second ballot for 2016 Roots Artist of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards. So…Let’s hit the road again! Here are the anchor dates for the next couple months – stay tuned, many more to come!
