AUBREY LYNN ENGLAND - 2013 TRRMA NEW FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR!
WE DID IT! THANK Y'ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
Such and incredible feeling to be nominated in this very special category that can only be won once, and ladies can only be nominated for it 3 times. YOU helped to turn this nomination into a win, and I could not be more grateful!!! Thank you for being so wonderfully supportive of me, my family and my career and for taking time to express your votes and opinions to these institutions that I have been nominated in this year.
It was such an honor to receive this award from the 2012 New Female Vocalist of the Year, and my dear friend and roster mate, Miss Heather Roberts. I was so completely excited and overwhelmed that my acceptance speech came out as candid as you can imagine, telling the audience that "... the baby is so excited in my belly, too, and I'm just trying not to pee my pants!" :-D
I am so excited to also let y'all know that the single that I am featured on, "Whiskey and You" By Chapter 11 has broken into the Texas Regional Radio Report top 100 having only been released for 3 weeks! With your help we can keep climbing the charts with this amazing re-production of an incredible Chris Stapleton song. Please call into your local Texas Music stations and request it! If you haven't heard the song, you can check it out here:
NEW ALBUM PRE-PRODUCTION:
I am currently working on the pre-production for my new album to be recorded!!! I have been writing so much and am very excited to be working on recording some new music that I can't wait to share with y'all! I anticipate a release in the early Fall of this year and will continue to keep y'all posted on news of recording, etc, as it happens!
Laretta Mae is still safe & sound in the oven, y'all! I am due July 8th, but I often feel like she will be here much sooner than that date. My checkups have been great and she is the most active little bundle in my belly right now! Stong, healthy kicks, letting me and her Daddy know she is doing just fine in there. Thank y'all for always being the sweetest about the new addition to our family and for thinking of us as we prepare to welcome our second baby girl into the world. We couldn't be happier! I will be sure to let y'all know when she is on her way to meet us!

WITCH LIKE ME III:
Witch Like Me III is an annual Texas Music event that I am in the 3rd year of organizing and putting on.
This year I have decided that this event will go to benefit a woman in music that I have known since I was a teenager singing at the Garland Opry, Miss LIZ ARNOLD. Please take a few minutes to read about her below:
(From http://www.lizarnoldmusic.com/ )
In the early morning hours of December 17, 2011 Liz was the victim of a horrific assault. She was found unconscious and in full cardiac arrest with an electrical cord tied around her neck. Thanks to the quick response of the Allen Fire Department, the paramedic team was able to revive her after several attempts. Sadly, our Liz has suffered a devastating brain injury. She will be undergoing a series of neuro stem cell transplants. Though this procedure is experimental, this transplant has improved many lives and in some cases accomplished full restoration. Those of us that know Lizzy, know her as a real fighter and a very determined person. Although the medical community gave her little hope of survival at first, she did survive the assault, leaving her in a coma. The medical community did not believe that she would ever wake from the coma but she did. They said she would never become conscious; a quote from the attending physician at that time, " She has zero chance of any meaningful recovery". That physician has since been replaced. Lizzy is now in a semi-conscious state, getting better and doing physical therapy everyday. As she progresses, she keeps beating the expectations of the medical community.Her eyes are open, she does respond to people and stimulus around her, she cries when she is upset and she smiles when she is happy or sees something she likes.
Every donation of $15.00 will receive a copy of her CD, "Til I get There". It is a two CD set. Please helpour Lizzy recover and donate today. She has a long road to recovery ahead of her. So far, her medical bills, though paid through insurance and her family, have exceeded $1.5 Million Dollars. Unfortunately, the treatments she needs are an out of pocket expense. We are raising $100,000.00 to cover them. All donations are greatly appreciated.
Liz and I shared many Saturday nights at the Garland Opry as we were growing up and learning our craft of music at the same time. It broke my heart into a million pieces to hear of Liz's assault and injury, and I want to do everything I can to help her family to provide the treatments that she needs to continue improving her state of health.
Just like her family, I dream to hear her sing with that beautiful voice again someday!
With that being said, I am SO excited to announce the WLM3 will be held on
OCTOBER 26, 2013 at LOVE & WAR IN TEXAS- PLANO!!!
So far we have confirmed the following bands:
Chuck Ligon Band
The Dirty Pesos
Aubrey Lynn & Yellow Rose
We will be hosting a lineup of 5 total bands and acoustic acts and I will be updating my site and facebook page for WLM3 as those confirmations come in!
In Closing, I would just like to Thank y'all once again for always being beside me as I journey through my career in music and my life. Y'all are a daily inspiration to me that I am walking the right path and continue to encourage me following my dreams.
I will forever be grateful for that!
LOVE XOXO, Aubrey Lynn
