Here are a couple more song introductions for you!
"Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar" was written by Dennis Linde, and I heard it for the first time just shortly after I started truly performing. It wasn't a new song by any means, but it was brand new to me; and I easily fell in love with it.
I've been singing this song ever since.
I love the story inside this song, and it reminds me of my grandpa.
My grandma and grandpa used to have a blue and white motorhome, and one summer, my cousin and I got to ride in it from our grandparents' house to a lake where the whole family was getting together for a couple weeks... My grandpa was driving, and my grandma was in the passenger seat; and my grandpa told my cousin and me stories the whole way to Gull Lake. I don't know how many of his stories were true, but that road trip with my grandma and grandpa will always be one of my favorite memories...
John Denver recorded "Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar", and I've been a massive John Denver fan my whole life. He's one of my favorites. So I loved having the opportunity to record a song he sang that isn't one of his most well-known.
"Wander With Me" is the title song on the the album!
I have no behind the scenes for you for this song at the moment...
You'll just have to wait and hear it a week from now... when the Wander With Me album comes out on January 18!!
Are you excited??
