I appreciate everyone’s support this year! It’s been another great year of blogging about the best music this side of heaven and I’m looking forward to bigger and better things in 2013.
There have been so many great moments this past year, but the one that stands out the most for me is the emergence of Anita Wilson. Her music and beautiful spirit was a breath of fresh air. I’m looking forward to hearing more from her in 2013!
