So, Kim Williams (to my right) called me up on stage while he was performing a songwriters showcase with songwriting greats Doug Johnson, Jim McBride and Wil Nance who have written for artists such as Garth Brooks, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, Randy Travis and I don't know how many more! It was an honor to be up on stage performing my own song with them! It was definitely the highlight of my year so far! So nervous I forgot my own words half way through!
Earlier that day I had won the Grand Prize for best song, The Music Doesn't Judge Me, at the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival in Gatlinburg, TN (August 23rd, 2014).
