Happy May Day everyone! I'm so excited to tell you that one of my biggest dreams as a musician has come true....
Yesterday my friend Hannah and I were writing together inside when we both realized hey! we should totally be doing the exact same thing outside, so we put a blanket in my front yard and hauled our guitars, our laptops, and our coffees out there.
While sitting in the sun I got that feeling--you know the one--when the season is changing, everything smells so familiar and reminds you of something but you never know quite what. I've been here before. I find myself humming “Strawberry Wine” and thinking about a boy that I loved my sophomore year. I've been here before. I feel the heat of the pavement burning the soles of my feet as my brother and I race from the driveway and into the sprinkler again and again. I've been here before. Every time I tear open the freezer there is a color wheel of popsicles waiting for me and my favorite flavor is always grape. I've been here before. I've seen the sea change, the rite of passage that we call Spring. And every year I resign my skin for months to slowly cooking in the sun, as pollen thick as snow falls to the ground, I breathe in deeply, then cough a little. I know that terrible tan lines are coming for me. It's already hot here in the south, but dang it feels good.

I got to sing a duet with my friend Anderson East on his song “Say Anything” which just appeared on Suburgatory April 10th. You can download it here: http://www.andersoneast.com/

I hope this finds you well. Thank you for all that you do.....
Hello there! These cold and snowy days here in Nashville have given me even more reason to sip a cup of tea and play some music. I've been writing more than ever and just started recording a new record!
I had a really exciting February getting to open shows for Bob Schneider and The Avett Brothers. Here's a video of me singing with The Avetts on their incredible song "Living of Love."
I also was lucky enough to have my song "These Words" appear on The CW's "Hart of Dixie." Here is a link to that episode. (My song starts at (34:17)
