Big Show! Radio! Lots of album fun!!!
Hello wonderful supportive album backers!
We are 8 days away from the big release show! Have you gotten your tickets yet? I'd really love to see you there!!! I'm so thrilled to show off all the guest singers that will be on stage with me (Kari Arnett! Matthew French! Vicky Emerson! Ben Cook-Feltz! he'll play keys, too!) as well as my lovely bandmates (Thomas! Andrew! Lars!) and Shane Akers on Dobro!!
PLUS Graham Bramblett will be opening the night with his band - he's such a fantastic songwriter, and singer, and if you aren't already a big fan, you will be by the end of the night. And Becky Rae Dalton will be singing to us from the lounge stage during intermission and pre-show. So much music! I can't wait!!!!
In the next few days I've got some cool radio things you might want to peek in on! Or listen in on I guess :)
Tomorrow (Friday, 11/3) at noon, the band and I will be on the Current's Radio Heartland. You can listen in from their website, or at the the MPR radio app. It will also be up on my facebook and website shortly after airing. We went in to the MPR studio yesterday and had a great chat with host Mike Pengra, as well as played 3 tunes from the album: Falling Over, Good at Goodbye, and Nothing Compares.
Then on Sunday (11/5) I'll be on My BOB Country as the guest host of the Homegrown Show. Graham will be there, too! We'll each sing a song or two, as well as play you some fantastic MN grown country music! (stream it here or listen in at 106.1 in the Twin Cities).
Also, over the last 3 weeks I sent out 100 hard copies of the album and 50 digital copies to radio stations, first a wave to Europe, and then to domestic stations that have been supportive in the past, or the ones that report to the Americana Music Association chart. I've gotten some great feedback from the Euro stations, and I will begin checking in with the domestic stations on November 13th. I've hired Vicky Emerson to work on the campaign with me - some stations just seem to like dealing with the artist directly. Plus Vicky is pretty badass about radio :) I'm lucky to get to work with her!
Thank you all for your support. I absolutely could not have done any of this without you. My heart is so full with gratitude for each one of you - and I'm carrying all that gratitude and joy into the release show! I think it's gonna be a special night. If nothing else, I'll turn 39 that day, so hey! That's a thing!!!!!
