Happy New Year! 

We've had a great start to the new year!  I kicked off the year with a couple of radio spots talking about my upcoming new release, "Lay Me Down" aka "Sweet Nothings" & the January 3rd show with Country Music Legend - Mr. Gene Watson.  BTW, Mr. Randy Owen (Alabama) surprised us with a visit.  He's a Gene Watson fan & introduced Gene at the concert!  It just keeps getting better. 

I've got a renewed focus on my songwriting goals, but I can't stay off the stage long.  I hope you're having a successful start to your new year and resolutions/goals.  Set 'em high & believe you're gonna reach them this year! 

Thanks for following me & my music.  I can't express in words how much it means to me when I look out at the Tivoli Theatre and hear so many people singing the words to a song that I haven't even cut on a record yet.  I appreciate you & the friendships I've made through music.

Here's to an incredible 2015!

Cheers,
Robby
