Third thurshead

girls & horses

BIG, BIG GRATITUDE to our friends at
for bein' sponsors of our third thursday sessions!!


follow you anywhere

i've now taken to calling this song,
"follow you OdienCash anywhere"
~we just had to say goodbye to our precious
tiny BUT OH SO MIGHTY kitty cat tiny Cash who you see
with me & my BIG beauty~full ROCKSTAR Jane in the video pic...
seems like yesterday we had to say goodbye to our sweet Odie...
none of these things ever make sense but i'm finding peace in
knowing that our two precious kitty cat boys are up yonder sportin' their
Heavenly ANGEL wings & havin' a blast runnin' around in
Heavenly horse poop spotted pastures...we MISS & LOVE you
SO MUCH our precious tiny Cash...i know you & your precious
brother Odie are ALWAYS with us & with us in ALL WAYS~

i'm SO GRATEFUL for this song & for ALL the AMAZIN' that's
been happenin' for us & the herd, this seemed like the song
to share with y'all this just kinda "fell out" a few
months ago with LOTS of help from all of my co~writers;
God n Odie aka "monkey man," (who we lost right before
this song came to be, he makes a special appearance;)
& my whole beauty~full herd...with writin' songs, i never feel
like it's really ME writin' them anyway=) it was inspired by
watchin' the INCREDIBLE "7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman"
DVD series project that we're SO grateful to be a musical
part of & LUCKY me, the song just fell into my lap,
i'm SO GRATEFUL i was there to catch it!=)  

the recording is the VERY live guitar vocal (you can even hear
mine & sam's chairs creakin' in the studio in the background;)
me & sam recorded a few days after it fell out=) and the video
is live & in the moment too=) we just went out into the sun &
made some home videos of me out playin' with our babies,
we had SO MUCH fun, just bein' in the moment out with our
ROCKSTAR herd=) i wanted y'all to hear it in it's most natural,
authentic & honest form & when you see the video, i think you'll
understand=) i'm such a LUCKY mama
cowgirl, SO GRATEFUL for my beauty~full family & this
wonder~full LIFE!! 
i hope you're feelin' BLESSED & GRATEFUL too=)

this is one of my most favorite songs ever!=) my kingdom to have
had the chance to meet one of my heroes, Dan Fogelberg...
he must've been a sweetheart & i always feel honored to sing
his's one of the best songs ever written in my opinion &
everytime i hear it & when i'm performing it somewhere out there
on the road i'm reminded to "let the kid out" and to always
"join in the dance"=)

~ make sure to check out ~ i signed the petition
to induct this ROCKSTAR cowboy into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,
please do the same & make sure you're always
"joinin' in the dance" ~~
Here's what Eric Mills, Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria,
had to say about our version=)
"Templeton and Sam's new rendition of Dan Fogelberg's
"Run For The Roses" is the best version of the song that
I've heard since Dan's original was released in the
early 1980's. They've stripped the song down to it's
very essence, and made it their own, while still holding
onto the song's true spirit. It is a great example of
Templeton and Sam's talent and chemistry, and a
great honor to Dan Fogelberg,
as well!"

thanks SO much to sweet Eric for those kind words &
for his AMAZING support & to the whole DF herd for all the
support & kindness, sam & i are humbled & grateful!!=) ~
I feel honored every time I sing "run for the roses" & I look
forwardto the day I get to sing it at the Kentucky Derby, for
those of you who know me, y'all know that I dream BIG,
you got to!! 
 Here's to ALWAYS "joinin' in the dance."
dream BIG * work hard * have faith, tt & the herd=)
