Happy New Year everyone!!!! Hope you've got fun plans to ring in the New Year. I wanted to take a moment and give you a BIG THANK YOU for all of your love and support for me in 2013. Holy cow, what a year!! Not only did I get to put out my 5-song EP, but I also had the opportunity to play with Wynonna, Sara Evans, Lee Brice, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann, Darius Rucker, The Swon Brothers, Kix Brooks, Big SMO, Steel Magnolia, Josh Turner, Blackberry Smoke, and Ronnie Dunn.
What a dream it's been for me to travel all over the country visiting small towns to play big shows. I've been able to see parts of Arkansas, Missouri, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Texas that I wouldn't have been able to see had I not gotten these incredible opportunities. Crazier than that, is the fect that I got to take my husband with me to every show, but one. I would have never guessed that would be the case this time, last year.
I've been able to form relationships with NRA Country, Poverty is Real, MAC Cosmetics, Richards & Southern, gifted songwriters, and complete strangers because of music. Honestly, the best part has been sharing my music with you, and how you have responded. I had 2 shows in Nashville where I played to a packed house at 3rd & Lindsley (mind blown!). I can not possibly thank each of you enough for what you have given me in 2013. Every fan, every "team" member, every co-writer, every organization, every business conversation, every band member, and every heart that has invested in my career in 2013 has invested into my life, and for that I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
A very special THANK YOU to SONYATV for believing in me as a writer and as an artist.
I am ready to work harder in 2014, to go to more of your cities, to write better songs, and take this thing to the next level! I'm ready. I will make you proud(er), make you sing louder, and give you my all in the New Year. Happy New Year, friends. We got a good one coming up ahead. All my love - Cheryl
