I'm not sure if it's spring fever or cabin fever here lately! Our weather has been crazy! One day it's 75 degrees and the next day it's snowing! (This really happened. I'm not making it up!) That's southern Indiana for ya! Wanted to let everyone know that this Saturday April 9th, MSRR will be playing in Bloomington Indiana at the Spring Fling, held at the former Buddy Bill's on Moffett lane. Also playing is Sweetgrass and other local acoustic/bluegrass/gospel artists. The festivities start at 3pm with open jam sessions, a pitch-in dinner at 5pm, and the bands start playing at 6pm. The shows will be followed by more jamming that lasts till around 10pm. Bring your instruments, chairs and a covered dish! We're gonna have a ball!
County Sales is a company that specializes in music sales of bluegrass/country/old-time artists. Dave Freeman (aka county sales) is probably the most respected critic of this genre. He features albums on his website and in his newsletter, and then sells the music for a profit. Anyway, he's placed an order for my CD's, and will be featuring MSRR on his site and newsletter! I'm really excited about it and can't wait to see what happens with this. I feel sooooo blessed! God is so good to me!
Chicago Acoustic Underground is a really cool site that has musical guests and interviews posted of all kinds of awesome artists. They boast over 1 million hits per month. The last two American Idol runner-ups have visited CAG, and played some fantastic music. It's no wonder they are so successful! MSRR will be recording our segment on Friday, March 25th.
Later that evening we're gonna play at a little place called The Electric Brew. We'll be starting around 7pm.
Stop in and share a cup o' joe with the rest of us caffeine freaks!
I'm so excited to be working with Steve Johnson of Mountain Music Entertainment! I've known Steve for several years. We've played a little music together. I'm embarrassed to admit that Steve was the first person I ever heard sing "More Pretty Girls Than One". I'm not sure if he knows that. Keep it between us. ;-) He lives in Tennessee, but we've stayed in touch via Bean Blossom and emails, but you know, Bean Blossom has a way of pulling the truth out of person. lol! He's an all-around great guy, and I'm sure we're gonna fake it till we make it! lol!
