Going home

Frankly…I am nervous to go home. I have been touring off-and-on for almost a year now.  Life on the road is extremely predictable.  I have my house (aka tour bus), I wake up in a different city daily, and put on a show.  I count on my bus driver to know where we are going and my tour manager to tell me where to be and what to do.  My schedule is pretty much pre-determined.  Simple.  Straightforward.  Every day is full, fun and busy; and I like it that way.  When on tour, work and play are in the same category; my co-workers double as my best friends and we’re together all the time.

But NOW…now that I’m suddenly NOT on tour, I have to plan every day, juggle a million different tasks (e.g., write new music, plan and create videos, etc.), take time to reconnect with friends, and I have to plan time for recreational time (or I won’t).  Sadly, now that my best-friends aren’t sleeping in the bunks next to me, “hanging out” doesn’t just automatically happen anymore.  We are done touring for the rest of the year. I won’t be stepping onto a tour bus and I won’t see my tour family all together for at least another 7 months.  I moved to LA right before our last tour, so I feel like I am jumping into a whole new world.  I don’t know many people here yet, it doesn’t really feel like home yet, and it’s overwhelming to think about making a bunch of new friends.

It’s crazy to think about, but I haven’t been in the same place for longer than 2 weeks for the past year-and-a-half.  My nomad-ness has made it easy to excuse myself for not having a boyfriend, but now that I will be stationary for the next 7 months, there is NO excuse for my extreme case of “single-itis.”  Grandma is going to be on my case for sure!  (“You need a nice young feller….”)

Anyhow, I am nervous about jumping into life “not-on-the-road” again, but I think this will be good for me.  It will force me to stretch.  And everyone can use a good stretch once in awhile, right?

    I hope you remember me, just so i don’t seem to off the wall. I had forgotten for some time that you visited my school (it was Pottsboro Texas) a while back until i started hearing your music on Pandora. I thought « Wow. Why is this so familiar? ». This was shortly followed by a flood of memories of you and I carrying on a conversation, while the auditorium just stared at us. It started with myself shouting « i love you » because of course. Who wouldn’t? Ha, anyways you told me you loved me as well and asked me my name, but after i told you i noticed there was a difference in the atmosphere. Almost like you already knew who i was? Honestly, i feel like we should be making music together. « I hope we can make music together one day! » Being one of the last things you said to me, and these genuinely magnificent orchestrations that i seem to be able to belt out in my mind tell me, that i must at some point get the chance to speak to you in person not just once more, but hopefully learn to adhere to one another pre-cognitive experience that day and realize the world around us has said « let the bass drop sporradically, with an equivalently momentous force behind the violin! » If you don’t mind me saying your skills are both beautiful and vicious. Something like a hurricane ;) . If you have any time at all please respond. you can email or Do not be afraid to call or text at any time of day, night, or morning. I would encourage as swiftly as you possibly can. I live on the outskirts of fort worth in burleson, Texas. Which means ill be rather close to your July 12 show in Dallas.

    Lindsey, i think your music is great, amazing, and awesome. Really never thought much about violins or fiddles except for the days of (The Charlie Daniels Band) but you are just amazing. Wish i could see a live show. Do you think you will ever tour in Alaska. If so would love to see a show. We live in Kenai, Alaska. Hope to see you here one day.

    What great year Lindsey, I saw you twice in Pittsburgh. The 2nd time on the big stage was really great. Coming home after your fantastic world tour has to feel great. Intimidating, well just remember the first time you sang on stage. I was blown away as I had no idea the voice on your music was yours. I am sure that you are your own worst critic. You will do great on your new album. Be Safe, Be Well Lach

    Great to finally have something new on the blog, I’ve waited some time for something new. It’s great that you let your fans read about your life, and that you really care about us, and want us to be part of your life. Thank you for everything that you do, and keep up the great work :)
