When I was in my early 20's and in college, I worked on a student programming board and one of my first concerts I booked was you. I was so excited. I was a HUGE fan and I knew the concert would be a success. It was. I don't really remember meeting you although I'm sure I did. I do remember sitting with a man who would be husband number one, and holding hands as you sang. Your voice seemed to charm him and make him realize how wonderful I was. Oh well - turns out he wasn't so wonderful and so our 3 year marriage ended without too much damage. And so much has happened in the last 20+ years which has no bearing on this message. The point is that I just saw you again - at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville this past Saturday night. I was in Nashville to audition at the Bluebird the following morning. See, I'm a singer/songwriter with a big dream - one that I am finally pursuing at age 49. I was at the Bluebird alone and was seated with some very nice people from Carrollton, GA. I told them how I had booked you years ago and how wonderful you were. But when you started to play your guitar, and you began to sing it all flew back, stronger than ever. You are one of a kind. Thank God you haven't quit. You ARE doing what you are supposed to do because when you do it - everything stops for those who listen. You are down to earth, funny, thought provoking, someone that would be so interesting to get to know. And finding your web site tonight and reading this - it makes me feel like I'm finally heading in the right direction. And it reminds me that no matter what - I shouldn't quit. So thanks for that Michael. Keep up the great work and take each day one at a time. That's my plan.
