      Dear Tamara, Even though we've never met in person, I feel a very strong kinship with you. I've been following your career ever since Country Music Magazine. Congratulations on receiving the (most well deserved) TxHSA award. Your decision to postpone the release of the film is wise, in view of the circumstances. I love seeing an email from you in my inbox. Thanks for all your hard work,and Thanks especially for staying in contact with us. You're the best!

      I am very happy that the film deadline has been moved back. That means you have to be our friend for a whole nother year.
      Congratulations on your TXHSA award. Very deserving. I would have to agree with the previous poster that your relationship with your whole cast of songwriting characters is every bit as interesting as any of their stand alone stories. Your commitment, passion and love for your Texas friends is as inspiring a story as any. Anymore: I can't hear a Guy Clark song without thinking of how you brought the songs to life by filling in the back story. Thank you and God bless you.

      very good decision about postponing the release date - the 2 films who eat each other up
      but then you always seem to make the right decisions -

      Hi, Tamara. First of all (and least importantly), I agree with your reasoning for holding off on the film submission until 2019. Secondly, CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU on such a WELL-DESERVED honor of being recognized by the TxHSA. It's clear how talented and passionate you are and how loved. I've come to feel the same way about you from afar, just through this project. (Don't worry, I'm not a stalker -- ha! -- but I do think we would be great friends if we knew each other.) Well done! Annette

      I lve hearing about the progress of the film, Tamara. I think you have made smart decisions all along. Thanks for telling us about the Outlaws film. Looking forward to both.

      All good, Tamara. It was a great concert to see (at Ryman), and a great book to read here at home. It will be a great movie to see, when it's ready
