I have not waited for an album like this EVER! I have thoroughly loved Natalie’s voice since the first time I heard “I Can Love You Better” come through the airwaves. She’s got tremendous talent. I so admire style, her wit, and her tenacity. When she said the “thing” she said that got her banned from country radio forever, I became even more enchanted. (If you haven’t seen “Shut Up and Sing”, DO IT…now)
Now, ten years (REALLY?!!) later, she’s releasing the solo project. And I can’t wait.

“Life isn’t about keeping score. It’s not about how many
people call you and it’s not about who you’ve dated, are
dating, or haven’t dated at all. It isn’t about who you’ve
kissed, what sport you play, or which girl or guy likes you.
It’s not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your
skin or where you live or go to school. In fact, it’s not
about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you.
Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends, or if you are
alone, and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.
Life just isn’t about that. But life is about who you love and
who you hurt. It’s about how you feel about yourself. It’s
about trust, happiness, and compassion. It’s about sticking up
for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is
about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building
confidence. It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s
about seeing people for who they are and not what they have.
Most of all, it’s about choosing to use your life to touch
someone else’s in a way that could never have been achieved
otherwise. These choices are what life’s about.”
