Thanks for checking out my new website…I hope that y’all like the "look" and "functionality"! One new feature that I am really excited about is having a blog page where I can personally communicate with you without having to keep count of the words/character spaces. :)
2013 has been a crazy fun year! First off, I’m officially an aunt! My sister and her husband had their first baby this past January! We’re so excited to have this lil’ addition to the family!
I spent the first half of the year training/competing for Season 16’s Dancing with the Stars, and thanks to having the best coach->Derek Hough and YOU ALL for watching & voting, we took home the mirror ball trophy! Wahoo! :) Seriously, thank y’all so much for supporting us on the show! If you are ever in Nashville, TN, you can see our mirror ball trophy at the Country Music Hall of Fame! After DWTS, I finished recording my fourth album, The Woman I Am, and I‘ve been on the road touring and doing shows all summer/fall. Speaking of fall, can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving?! This Thanksgiving will be my first time being in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC! I remember watching this on TV every year as a child with my grandmother…never imagined that I’d actually be in the parade!
Ok, let’s rewind, so, my new album The Woman I Am is officially out now!!!! I cannot wait for y’all to hear it! I’ve worked so hard writing and finding songs that I hope you’ll love.
