Today I’m writing with some unusual news for someone who’s been a touring singer/songwriter for the last six years. To get right to the point:
I have accepted a program director position at Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp just outside Nashville, TN for the summer of 2017. That’s right y’all – I’m going back to camp!
Some of you might already know about my love for camp and my desire to build my own camp someday. This position is something I’ve been looking for over the past few years, and when the opportunity arose, I just had to take it. For me, working at a camp this summer is all about continuing to build a life that works for me and continuing to grow and dream.
From the time I signed up for my first choir camp, music has always been my number-one priority. I feel lucky to have made my living over the past few years touring and making albums, and I fully intend to continue touring and recording new projects. It’s just that now that I’m getting older (turning 30 this year, eek!) there just seem to be so many other things I want to do with my life. Some of you can remember when I first started sending these newsletters; I was 22, fresh out of college, and dying for the troubadour life. That girl could have never imagined being where I am today, taking a “grown-up” job and being married, but, the years have flown by, the universe has grown even bigger, and I’m ready to contribute to the world in other ways besides music.
So, yeah, it’s going to be a big change for me. Getting up early Monday–Friday, being at work by8:15am, having weekends off…
Honestly, nothing is really going to change as far as music stuff is concerned. I have tours in the works for August and September, I plan on being in Europe again in October, and I’ve got a new single and a new EP to be released over the next few months. Life is good, y’all, and winter is almost over!
I just love all of you so much, and I want to thank you for your support through the years.
Keep on keepin’ on.
all my love,
