2022 here we go with another amazing song. I think all my songs are amazing because of the great songwriters that pass them on to me to create in the studio. At the end of the day, it all comes down to a great song, and that is due to amazing writers. 

 Well, here we are 2022. Time flies and things have changed. 

In March 2020 my new single Wedding Day was released, and it didn’t even get legs due to covid. 

It’s an amazing song and you need to check it out. I was shocked when we did release it and how significant this song would be to 2020. 

It was the year the world shut down and every bride needed to cancel her wedding day. That was the Song, a bride, Saturday June 4……. And no wedding day. Great song and great story written by legendary Doc Walker Chris Thorstienson and Dave Wasyliw and Murray Pulver. 

 2020 was a crazy year. In all my 50 years of age did I ever think that I would live through a pandemic. A lock down every venue cancelled. We had no clue what the future would be. It was a hard year for everyone.  2020 was not going to leave me 

I lost my horse June 13,2020; my best friend lost her father. My friend and band mate Clint Dutiaume had a heart attack, and wouldn’t you know it, a week to the day I suffer a heart attack. 

 A day I will never forget June 30,2020 Friday and hot. A bombing plus 40 and no wind. Ah got to love Manitoba!  We, my BFF and her husband had arrived at Vakker beach, we have a seasonal there . (Interesting enough it is owned and operated by the legendary Doc Walker Chris Thorstienson) We had just unloaded the coolers and were getting ready for a week of fun in the sun. Fishing, best friends and bon fires. I had lost my horse my BFF had lost her dad and we just needed a break.

 Our week of holidays quickly changed. We had arrived and it thought I was suffering from heat stroke. If it wasn’t for the quick thinking of Kari and Mitch, not sure I would have been able to get through it. Not sure I would be here.  I was supposed to be playing Dauphin Country Fest that night. It had been cancelled due to covid. Just like everything else in 2020.

 Apparently, I have SCADS.  Spontaneous coronary artery dissection. Meaning my arteries are like glass and shatter like tempered glass. It is a rare heart condition. They only started studying SCADS in 2011 when they realized and found that healthy mothers giving birth were then having massive heart attacks. 

 It was once said that it would be a rare occurrence to meet a SCAD survivor as there were not that many. 

 And here we are today in 2022. I wasn’t sure that I was going to continue my career. Seemed easier and less stress if I would just retire and sit back. 

 It was in January of 2022, Sherry St Germain called and said she had a single she wanted to record. Her first words were” momma I got a song for ya, it’s a hit, it will go number 1!!”.

The first time I heard Surrender, it was in my head. As a former radio announcer and avid country buff, I knew right then and there that this song had what it would take to make the hard journey to number 1. I loved the song. 

It was going to be a process and would be not an easy recording. I needed to get to Nevada. 

That is where Sherry was working out of and needed me there. LAS VEGAS Baby!!!

It became an opportunity for my Bff and I to celebrate our 50th birthday in Las Vegas. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. 

I had the opportunity to work with some true legends in the business. It was the first time working with a female producer and it just clicked. 

Surrender is the song that will resonate with anyone who has been in a relationship. It is a powerful song that has you dancing and crying all at the same time. And then, there is the hook. That one thing that all great songs need to succeed. Type your paragraph here.
