Back Home Again in Indiana
As many of you know, I grew up in Zionsville, Indiana. It’s a quaint, small town just 20 minutes north of Indianapolis. And while it has experienced tremendous growth since I moved away (back in 2001), Zionsville hasn’t lost its small town charm or its supportive, close knit community. It was a wonderful place to grow up and still remains an idyllic spot, evident by the fact that the majority of my childhood friends either never left, or eventually returned to good old “Z-ville” as we call it.
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of going back to perform for the Zionsville Alumni Association’s fundraiser, “Rhythm & Booze.” Several sponsors, news outlets, and local publications got behind the inaugural event, which helped to raise money for annual college scholarships and all-class reunions. The ZAA works hard to provide and maintain a network of connection among ZCHS alumni, teachers, coaches, and staff, so it goes without saying I was grateful they reached out to me. Twenty years removed from my HS graduation, and my former eye doctor rings me up out of the blue to see if I’d be interested in coming back to perform. Now that’s what I call a supportive network! Of course I didn’t have to think twice about my answer. Not only was I honored to be a part of the fundraiser, but I was thrilled to perform for so many familiar faces in the crowd. It was a great turnout and the venue was just right for the occasion…. Moontown Brewing Company did not disappoint! Below are some photos from the evening and a video montage featuring a few performance clips. I was accompanied by fellow Nashville singer-songwriter, Abbie Sloane. Thanks again to the ZAA for having us… until next time!
