The one and only Ned Perme wrote "Christmas Time in Arkansas" in 1985 and for several years performed it with Terry Rose. But the song hadn't been performed live for about two decades. Last year we performed it with Steve Zimmerman (aka "Elvis Guy" if you listen to the Buzz) at Celebrity Karaoke and then we performed it again this year with the addition of my husband, Dave, on guitar. So much fun to sing Ned's song!!! Merry Christmas!!!

You may not know it but Scott Inman is a great singer! He and I had always enjoyed harmonizing on Mercy Me's version of Silent Night... and we finally got to perform it at the concert at Garvan Woodland Gardens. And not only did Ned Perme join us on the piano and Mike Lovelady on the drums but my own husband, Dave, picked up his guitar and performed with us too. What an honor to share the stage with such a great group!!!

I recently had the opportuntiy to perform with other media personalities in a concert at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs. It was so much fun!! Years ago I used to perform full time in theaters in Minneapolis but it's been a while since I've been behind the mic... as a singer, that is. :)
Here's a look at fun version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer that I did with Leslie Harper (former Channel 7 Host Jason Harper's very talented wife!).
One of my favorite Christmas albums has always been The Carpenters. So I chose to sing their version of The Christmas Song and Leslie was kind enough to accompany me. Thanks Leslie!!
