First of all, My Baby.
It’s actually my dad’s, but he let’s
me tour with it.
|Playing at the WRCA World Championship Finals in Amarillo, TX|
It’s a jumbo body, Gibson J100,
It has such a rich, big sound and I love how it matches the deep ranges of my voice.
It has traveled from brandings in Utah, to opening for The Josh Abbott Band in Texas, to playing at a ranch roping in Italy.
It is ever constant and curvy… just like me!
|Here I was playing at Victory Ranch, in Morgan Hill, CA|
This is my Crafter 6 string, dreadnaught cut-away. I’ve had it for a little over 2 years now and I generally take it as my backup guitar at gigs.
I was asked to audition for America’s Got Talent a couple years ago, and my friend Seven Williams from the band Whiskey Falls, loaned me a Crafter to play for the audition!
I liked it so much I ended up getting my own!
|In the studio in Tuscon, AZ|
This is my Fender banjo.
I just got it this summer and am still messing around with how to incorporate it into my sets…basically I love it and it makes me feel like a cowboy-girl/woodsman!!

for my sister and I’s blog, Buckaroo Barbie!
Here’s my little vintage, nylon string classical guitar.
I found it in a corner in an antique store one day while I was scrounging around looking for deals with my sister, Liz, and I snatched it up for $26!
I like to have it around so I have something I can play without worrying about it getting hurt. Or you know, just in case I go all John Belushi one day on a folk-singer who is wailing on the staircase of Animal House. 🙂
Did you know that from the time I was four until I was 13, I was trained to play classical piano? Well, I was and I’ve even preformed in a castle in Scotland for a recital when I was young!
I eventually traded in piano lessons for opera, but I still like to play at home. I don’t play any of the old pieces I used to, now days I like to mess around and accompany myself with renditions of The Rolling Stones’s Wild Horses.
When I was little I always enjoyed making up my own songs to play, way more than practicing what Bach or Mozart had written…my family called them “makeup songs’!
I also have and play an Alveraz 6 string dreadnaught guitar and a Breedlove 12 string cut-away guitar, but I don’t have any pictures of them right now!
I hope you enjoyed looking at what I love to play!
