November News!!

Hi there Friends and Fans!

Well another winter is upon us, and there is so much to be THANKFUL FOR!!! So here's my list of things I'm indeed thankful for (in no particular order)...

First of all, Larry and I just wrapped up a wonderfully fun & absolutely amazing Tour to Europe that included many fantastic stops in 6 countries!! and some Cruising, some performances, a lot of food, new friends, and some much needed R & R, combined with a bit of an Album Promo Tour. And, I also just found out the great news today that all of this hard work and PR is paying off: I'm now #7 on the Euro Indie Music Chart for my single "Dream of You"!!
                            -It takes just 2 seconds to please VOTE for me HERE ok?
I'm also in the TOP 200 of one of the Major Radio & Billboard reporting Charts, the US Digital Radio Tracking Chart! Yes, right behind Garth Brooks, which isn't too shabby-since I've always loved Garth and admire his music so much!!!

Secondly, I'm so thankful that I got to spend some quality time with a lot of my family I haven't seen for awhile, for Thanksgiving!  This includes my sister, Actress Missi Pyle from Los Angeles (and her 14 month old Adorable baby Zooey!), my Pianista & Musician extraordinaire sister from North Carolina- Julie, my little brother (and also Amazing Piano Maestro!) Gordon- from Austin, my Extraordinary brother Sam and his family, and my step kids David & Devon, and their Beautiful 6-week old baby, Mary Jane!  Also an update on my Daddy Frank: he now has advanced Altzheimers, but we were very blessed to spend Thanksgiving and yesterday with him and stepmom Lynn almost the whole afternoon, and he seemed happy, healthy, "with it" and seemed to know us! :)

Thirdly, I'm incredibly thankful for my amazing husband Larry, who has been my rock, my inspiration, and my major supporter of me and my music "ministry" for 5+ years now! I'm so thankful for all of the blessings Larry has given me as I've pursued what I believe to be a God-given calling to write timeless, memorable and positive music. I write music for folks who may need to hear a word of encouragement, truth, love and hope, and may need to know that someone out there relates to how they're feeling and what they're going through- yes, me--and God that is!

I'm also extremely grateful to God my Heavenly Father, and Lord Jesus Christ for giving me this awesome (and yes I'll admit, sometimes scary!) gift and responsibility, for it isn't me who is the "author" of these songs.  I firmly believe they are sent to me from Heaven, and that I was called to share these songs with others to make LIFE BETTER for those who may need to hear them here on earth!

I'm also so happy to announce that I'm either a Semi-FINALIST, a FINALIST or WINNER for the following: 2016 UK Songwriting Contest, 2016 Dallas Songwriters Contest, The International Songwriting Contest, Music IN Radio Contest (and too many others to mention!) at this time, all by the Grace of God!

Lastly, I'm very thankful to YOU my Friends, Supporters, Stations playing my music, & MY Amazing FANS! For without you and your love, encouragement, purchases, kindness, comments, music plays, friendship, LIKES, FOLLOWS, SHARES and support, I would not be able to continue to write and produce music. You see this is a very hard business to be a positive light in a dark world right now. So I really appreciate your continued prayers, support and all you do to lift my days!

1. Filming a Holiday Special in Atlanta on WATC-TV, Christian TV, on Tues. Nov. 29th, show times TBA!
