Great News in 2011
January and February has been a busy month for us already. The busy time has kept us from working on our new Cd project. We hope to see some progress and the Cd to be finished before the busy summer months. God has been good to us we just recently invested in a bus to make our travel easier. Pray for the band as they make the way to pay for this investment. In March we will start our month by traveling to the great state of Tennessee. We will play a few venues and then will compete in the North American Country Music Association International's Competition. (written March 1,2011)
