It’s been a while since I posted a diary entry.  Forgive me.  It’s been a crazy summer so far, and it’s only getting crazier! 

 

Every week from Monday to Thursday, I co-write songs and produce and sing demos for pitching in Nashville, where I work full time as a staff songwriter for BMG Chrysalis Publishing.  Then I spend Fridays flying to Canada, Saturdays performing at various summer festivals, and Sundays flying home to Nashville. 

 

In June, I had the chance to help raise funds for Alberta’s Slave Lake fire victims through CBC’s televised Slave Lake fundraiser in Edmonton.  I also spent Canada Day performing at a benefit concert in Slave Lake itself, where it took my breath away to view the destruction first hand.  In July I opened for Creedence Clearwater Revival at Grande Prairie’s Bud Country Fever Festival, sampled gourmet food while performing at Park City Utah’s Bluebird Café at Promontory, and most recently, opened for The Judds and Jason Aldean at Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, Alberta.

 

My new single, “I’m Gone” (the second single from my new “Never Be The Same” CD), has also been climbing the chart over the past few weeks.  Keep an eye out for the accompanying video too.  We shot it in beautiful Calgary, Alberta and it airs regularly on CMT Canada.

 

Coming up, I’ll be performing at the Kamloops Appreciation Celebration (Aug 11),  Havelock Jamboree (Aug 19), Lucknow’s Music in the Fields (Aug 27), Huntsville’s YWCA Fundraiser at the Algonquin Theatre (Sept 3), Paris Fair (Sept 4), the Canadian Country Music Awards weekend (Sept 10-12), and opening a string of dates for Reba McEntire in Fort McMurray Alberta (Sept 1), Halifax (Sept 26), and St. John’s Newfoundland (Sept 29 & 30)…as well as helping to headline Moose Jaw’s wonderful breast cancer fundraiser Concert of Hope yet again this year (Oct 1).  Check out the tour page of my victoriabanks.net website for details on the shows.

 

And after that, I’m taking a break, taking a breath, and taking some time off to get married!  Dave and I are planning our Connecticut wedding on Canadian Thanksgiving in October, and a subsequent tropical honeymoon in the South Pacific.  We can’t wait!

 

I’m super busy, but I’m definitely not complaining.  I am doing what I love to do, and I wouldn’t trade a moment of it!
