A friend of mine is putting on a Battle of the Bands on Saturday. And I have been coerced into playing in a band. Rue Johnson (our little blue grass band) takes the stage this Saturday at 7:30pm. I will be playing my fiddle (violin) in public for the first time since 1997. I haven't played in public this century!!! I'm nervous as all get out, but with a little bit of luck and a couple of prayers, I may just make it.
We're opening with Wagon Wheel and Jolene (obviously with our own little spin on them). And then if we make it through the voting in the first round (top three of eight), we're playing our crazy mash-up of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car and Lady Gaga's Bad Romance. Hopefully, we'll get to play it. Fingers crossed. It really is pretty awesome.
I am starting to get super nervous, so I need prayers just so I can make it on stage (And not completely chicken out). And so it isn't too hot. Here goes nothing. . . .
