in honor of the much loved & deeply missed sweet Barbaro & for every horse & human runnin' for the roses this weekend, may you all fly safely across the finish line, you're ALL ROCKSTARS & you're ALL winners!=)

this is one of my most favorite songs ever!=) my kingdom to have had the chance to meet one of my heroes, Dan Fogelberg...he must've been a sweetheart & it's neat to know he was a horseman too;) i always feel honored to sing his song...it's one of the best songs EVER written & EVER performed in my opinion & everytime i hear it & when i'm performing it somewhere out there on the road i'm reminded to "let the kid out" and to always "join in the dance," I hope we did the song proud=) what a ROCKSTAR Dan Fogelberg was & always will be!! ~ make sure to sign the petition to induct this ROCKSTAR cowboy into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, http://www.TheLivingLegacy.net ~ http://www.dfpeoria.com
~ Here's what Eric Mills, Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria, had to say about our version=)
"Templeton and Sam's new rendition of Dan Fogelberg's "Run For The Roses" is the best version of the song that I've heard since Dan's original was released in the early 1980's. They've stripped the song down to it's very essence, and made it their own, while still holding onto the song's true spirit. It is a great example of Templeton and Sam's talent and chemistry, and a great honor to Dan Fogelberg, as well!" thanks SO much to sweet Eric for those kind words & for his AMAZING support & friendship & to the whole DF herd for all of the support, sam & i are humbled & grateful!!=) ~ I feel honored every time I sing "run for the roses" & I look forward to the day I get to sing it at the Kentucky Derby, for those of you who know me, y'all know that I dream BIG, you got to!! So, here's to the ROCKSTAR horses who give the jockeys (and all of us horse folks;) WINGS...may you all FLY safely across the finish line this weekend & ALWAYS!!
Here's to ALWAYS "joinin' in the dance"!!
dream BIG * work hard * have faith, tt & the herd=)
