    Marideth,I know you are having a blast in Calif.and staying very busy.Sarah reminded me about your blog so I can share the following story I shared with her last week. I was having a very bad headache,one of those I call a 2 in 1[sinus & tension].For some reason I thought of you ,singing. because your voice is so sweet & tender & soothing.
    SO out to my jeep I go to get the Winter’s Bone Cd to listen to you sing
    Missouri Waltz.I visualized my head in your lap as if you were singing to me and gently
    rubbing my forehead as I resorted back to a youngster wanting to be soothed.
    Your voice is the best medication .Looking forward to hearing some more tenderly beautiful songs sung by you ! Will be looking for you at the Oscars !On TV, that is, as I will be in my corner of the woods in Stone County,Ar.wishing I was attending the West Plains party! enjoy the night!

      Thanks for the story, although I think your visualizing yourself back to a less stressful time probably helped more than the music, although I acknowledge that music has an awesome power. I definitely have enjoyed the whole show, and am getting to work and learn a great deal in my days here. But I’ll sure be glad to be home. By the way, we’ll be in the studio April 7 to start on a new album. Keep watching the blog for a release date.
