Fireworks & Fun

After we got back from Cancun (and immediately became submerged in post-vacation palm tree withdrawal), we had some great shows back on the Sundown Heaven Town tour hitting Virginia Beach, Charlotte, NC, and Raleigh.

We also finally got to play our full set in Kansas City! Last fall, we were scheduled to play in Kansas City but both Steve and Cass got sick, and we had to cancel (that's also why I stay away from oysters..  Eww). It was worth the wait though because we had a really great show - the crowd was going crazy, had some good grub and a good hang afterwards. 

After KC, we hit Chicago, St. Louis and Cincinnati. We played Chicago last year with Rascal Flatts and visited the nearby amusement park, affectionately referred to as "Fun World". Jim McGorman may have gotten the best of me on the go kart track last year, however, this year I left him in the dust and it was Mr. Fekete and I who were battling for the lead. Extreme amounts of fun were had!


3 of us on team Cassadee have July birthdays. Today (7/10), is Mr. James McGorman III's big day - Happy birthday, Jim! This past Monday (7/7), was back line tech extraordinaire Mr. Steve Simon's birthday - Happy birthday buddy! Last Friday (7/4), was my, and America's, birthday. I had some great time BBQing with a lot of friends and family, having drinks and laughs - priceless!

We are now on our way down to West Palm Beach, Tampa, and Atlanta this weekend. We are looking forward to Cass' hometown show and some birthday celebrations!  

More soon... 




The Year with Cassadee

This past Saturday, May 31st, marked the year anniversary of the first full-band show with Cassadee. We kicked things off at Jones Beach a year ago with Rascal Flatts on The Live & Loud Tour and it's been a whirlwind ever since! 

So much has happened in a year; we had an amazing summer tour with Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry, went on a very cool winter tour with Dean Brody, performed on The Tonight Show, The Today Show, CMT's Listen Up, America's Got Talent; even had a docu-series on CMT! The show on Saturday was the perfect way to celebrate the year milestone. We had the honor of opening for George Strait, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. The place was massive, sound was killer and we had a huge amount of fun during our set!

Needless to say, the shows have been fantastic experiences. Just as memorable and important though, are the good times had in between; the movie nights, bike rides, bus antics, endless laughs and all the new friends made along the way. I can't begin to say how grateful I am to be a part of a team that has been having such an incredible journey. Watching someone so talented achieve all of the success that she truly deserves, is an honor. I know that the next year will bring even more good times and I very much look forward to the future!

Much more soon...
