The Red Dirt Series

The Red Dirt Series bands

Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited to be writing to you again! We’re going into the third week of the New Year, and I couldn’t be doing worse with my New Year’s resolutions. Those things get harder to keep each year! I hope you all are having better luck than I am or we could be in trouble.

Now let’s get down to business. This week, I am beyond delighted to be writing about The Red Dirt Series! I am a Texas girl born and raised, so I bleed country music. Yes, coming from a Texan that may be stereotypical, but I do have my reasons. Country music digs deep into your soul. It...
