Today’s the day.

I can’t really belive it’s here already. This time last year I was just calming down after performing on the Country Music Special with Country Star Trace Adkins at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, a career high in itself, and now I’m preparing to go on tour with Trace and his amazing group of musicans for 6 weeks. How’d this happen?

I know in part it’s to do with The Chieftains, and I am greatful for that. It’s also due to being brought up on Lewis, and it’s songs and music, but it’s also to do with the lovely duo of producers that are Jon Coleman and Michael Spriggs and then of course there’s big fella himself. For some reason they let me loose on a couple of Trace’s album tracks and look where that kind of crazy idea gets us!

I am forever greatful to all the wonderful musicians I get to work, whether they like it or not they all occupy a little piece of me, I’m a bit of a soft sod in that respect.

Today at 7pm we’re off on the tour bus and though I know it’s going to hard work at times, long days and missing my Hubby, I know we’ll have fun along the way and there will no doubt be stories for the grandchildren. 😉

Yippee! x

      Thanks Henry! I’ll pass on your thoughts to Michael. He`s a great man. The Fiddler’s Hearth is a fine pub too – shame we couldn’t stay a little longer. 😉

      Thank you, Mary. I really enjoyed the gig. It’s a joy to sing on the show. It’s also a lovely old venue. I’m glad the kept it and upgraded it as opposed to knocking it down. Trace was in fine form – as ever!
