Wow, CCMA’s are right around the corner. I can’t believe I was nominated for “Roots Artist of the Year”. It has been an amazing year all around and this nomination just tops it off. I never thought when I set out on the road in a band at 17 I would be here right now. I had a one tonne box van my dad built bunks in and I drove all over North America with different bands playing music and making trouble. I’m sure it horrified my poor parents at times but they always supported my choice. And after almost 20 years of being in the music business getting my first nomination as a solo artist has really made me think back on what a wild ride it has been. Getting run outta towns by police, Gun fights (Literally) fist fights, all night drives, heart breaks and head on’s I sometimes wonder how I made it out alive! But looking back I know I really achieved all I dreamed about in the music business. I set out to see the world, make great friends and live my life to the fullest. Oh and make the best music I possibly can. And now back living in Edmonton surrounded by family and friends I know win lose or draw I couldn’t ask for anything more. I am truly blessed. Thank you!
