I'm really excited to be joining some good friends of mine from Nashville and NYC here on The One Love. I have chosen to support the International Justice Mission, a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. I encourage you to check out their website to learn more about this amazing organization that works to free thousands of slaves worldwide each year.
So after living the last few years in the great city of New York, I decided to come down south to Nashville, TN about 7 months ago to immerse myself in this amazing music scene here. I put out an EP around the same time and got busy writing and recording for the next project which I hope to have completed in time for the fall :0) Nashville has been good to me and one thing I love about this city is that there is always a show to play or go see. The last week or so has been amazing. On Monday I went to the CMT Music Awards (hosted by Miley Cyrus!!)(I'm a fan!) where I saw more country music performances in one night than I ever have in my whole life!
My birthday was on the 16th and some friends threw a small surprise party for me. It was the first time I ever had one of those :0) The 18th I had the priveledge of playing the famed Bluebird Cafe and share the stage with some amazing writers, including Tony Mullins, one of the Hitmen of Music Row.
The Bluebird is sort of a rite of passage for many of country music's best writers. And a couple nights ago I caught one of my favorite bands, Switchfoot. They rocked the packed out crowd!
umm, and that's my week in a nutshell, I'll try to update this as often as I can. Thanks to Jade & Cass for having me, I look forward to being a part of this amazing website!
