Carson's One Year Anniversary

This weekend was an anniversary of sorts for Carson. Our local volunteer fire department has an annual BBQ and Homecoming Event the first weekend every November. This community gathering is complete with vendors, games, food, live entertainment and a parade. Last year Carson was invited to perform her first show ever. You can read my post about that here. She played a thirty minute set in 38 degree weather. What a way to start out!

This past weekend she was invited to perform again. This time she sang for an hour in weather that was a little better. Although it was a bit windy, the temperature was in the mid fifties..much better than last year. The group after her cancelled due to the wind so she was asked to sing again after a short break. She is such a trouper.

I am amazed to look back and see how much she has accomplished with her music in a year's time. She has written quite a few original songs...had two produced and sold on itunes...and performed numerous shows. It makes me tired just thinking about it all. Oh, to have the energy of a thirteen year old again! Anyway, in honor of her first music anniversary I thought I would post a link to her youtube channel for those of you who have asked about what she has been doing lately. (Does that make me a proud mama?) I hope you enjoy!

Congrats to Carson! I remember the original post and she has done so well and come so far indeed. Jimmy is still most impressed with her and we have our cd in the car to listen to.

Question, are you going to the blogger spring fling in Asheville? I plan to be there. May 18-20. They have a blog up about it. Hope to see you there!

You have to be popping many buttons and beaming with pride. I can tell she sings from the heart and is comfortable up there. I bet she has a wonderful life ahead of her singing.

Congrats on one year Miss Carson and yes, you are a proud mama and rightly so!

I am amazed as to how much talent shows at a mere age of 13. Such a sweet voice indeed...

I am holding up my iced tea and toasting another great year...

I can't believe she is only 13. I have to admit when I pushed the button I was expecting what I got. You know mommas are usually a little more proud of talent than others. I was wrong - she has a great voice and I really like that song. Thanks for sharing!
