Exciting News!

I am sooo excited! I was one of 13 people picked to participate in the "Big Mountain Idol" contest! It is a local version of American Idol here in Helena.. ( a GREAT marketing move , IMO too! Way to go guys!) Each week people sing songs in front of an audience at Big Mountain Coffee (located in the heart of Old Towne Helena!) and the audience votes..I am recruiting my blogging friends to PLEASE come see me sing Friday.. And VOTE!! The winner gets to sing at the Buck Creek Festival this year! They also win $100 and a studio recording session of 3 songs that will be released on a CD and the CD release party will be held at Big Mountain Coffee! I am currently trying to figure out what to sing.. Oh and what to wear that makes me look YOUNGER because I am quite sure I am probably the OLDEST person in the contest! HAHA :)
