January 28, 2015 Ann is currently working on a new CD project at Backwoods Recording Studio. Instead of recording her original songs, as she has done in the past, this new CD project will be a collection of Ann’s favorite old hymns. The musical “flavor” will be a cross between Country and Bluegrass – lots of guitar, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, and even some banjo.
Ann is very excited about this new adventure, as it is the first time she has recorded songs she hasn’t written. It is allowing her to focus more on her “artist” side. She is enjoying the process of working with old friends, and meeting new ones. Plans are to complete the project by Christmas 2015.
