Chaos and Country Living

The last couple of weeks have been really busy around here. Even though our life gets a little chaotic at times, we always seem to be able to balance the chaos with some simple country living.



Carson spent to first part of the week in the studio recording the final vocals for her songs "Run" and "Missing You." I didn't realize how much work went into recording until this experience. It gives me a new respect for artists and all of the people that work in the music industry. As you can see...she enjoyed every minute of it.



Catie even got into the act and helped record a little of the background vocals!



Of course none of this would have been possibe without the help of some great people. Mark Lassiter introduced us to her producer, Brad Smith. We now consider them both great friends. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to work with Carson. Brad's work is amazing! We cant wait to get the final mix.



It wasn't quite all work and no play. Brad stayed with us in our home and we managed to do a little grilling and fishing...country life at its best!

I can't imagine how exciting this must be for Carson!! Not too many teenagers get to enjoy this experience. I'm sure you and your family were wonderful hosts as you shared your country life!

Wow! How absolutely wonderful! Perhaps you may put one of her songs on your blog so we can listen to her. I wish her all the best! As for Brad, I'm sure he had a great time fishing and doing simple country relaxing which is what I could use right now. My cousin's son from Germany is due in next week so I have been running around trying to get things done. Then blogger has been giving me fits with photos so I have not done much posting or blog reading. Fortunately last night I was able to upload a different way, and the photos are still there...yeah!
Have a great weekend!

Carla, I will wait patiently for more good news and to hear her sing. I know how difficult and strenuous it can be as my son has been the struggling musician for years. He has some great music... only needs that "break". Sounds like Carson is on her way. Blessing to you and your family.
