BIG NEWS: Nashville Songwriters Association Top 40

As part of my work in Nashville, I’ve been co-writing new songs with my friend, Anelda Spence… Our song “What Grace Is” was just selected as one of the TOP 40 Songs of the Quarter by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI)!

To put it in perspective… Thousands of songs come through the doors at NSAI each quarter. It’s a tremendous honor to be selected!

If you’re willing, take a listen to it, and click “Like” (next to the song) to vote for ours to be the number 1 song of the quarter! Thank you!

Special Nashville Performance Added


A Nashville venue called Jed’s holds a weekly songwriter night which is hosted by the radio station Lightning 100. The writers’ night is considered to be one of the best in the city.

After playing the weekly series a few times, I’m honored to have been asked to play at the “Best of Jed’s” quarterly showcase this Wednesday alongside 7 other great artists! Here are the details:

Where: The Country (next door to Jed’s)
Date: December 7th, 2016
Time: 6pm-8pm (I have a 15 minute set in the middle of the evening)
Cost: FREE

I’d love to see you there! Have a great day!

Showtime Change Tonight

Hey guys! Just a quick note to let you know that tonight’s show in Naperville, IL has been bumped to a 5pm start (instead of its originally scheduled later time).

Apparently there’s a big baseball game tonight that the local Chicagoland folks are hoping to watch 😉

Have a good day!
