Just moved into my new, permanent place in an urban area of Franklin, TN (right outside of Nashville), and I love it! It is beautiful. I am surrounded by New Yorkers and people from all over, including Los Angeles. This is the first fall I have not spent in NYC in years. I am looking forward to autumn here in TN.
Once again I see that God’s plans are better and bigger than mine. I was loving the ease of country life in Williamson County, but more work is now opening up for me in downtown Nashville, and that is where I will be moving soon. I have always been a city person, so it actually is feeling much more like home. Last Wednesday night I was blown away by the music at The Station Inn and the level of musicianship and such beautiful, soulful arrangements of new renditions of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and some of the best in country music through the years with the perfect harmonies of Chris and Ben Isaacs, Josh Swift (who played on my last CD), Bryan Sutton and Mike Rogers–a fun night! It was great to see my old friend and recording engineer Mark Capps for the first time in over twenty years given how we used to remember working with each other in the studio every single day when I had a publishing deal with Buddy Killen Music and he was engineer at the Soundshop. Time stands still for me sometimes living here in Nashville again, as it keeps feeling so much better than it ever did before to find myself at home here again.
