Howdy from Kentucky!
It's your little friend, Colton Blaze Ramey! I am doing great!
One reason is this: I performed at the Kentucky Opry in Draffenville, and I did real good. I performed in the "Beginner Instrumental" division, and I won my division! That means I get to have a chance to advance to the semi-finals, and then possibly the finals!
Mama and daddy were real proud of me! I was proud of me, too! :)
I did that last month; now I practice every day, so I can do good in the semi-finals, and hopefully make it to the finals!
I am still performing just about every weekend with my family. We are all enjoying ourselves, but the real performance season starts up in the spring. Lots of bluegrass festivals planned. During a performance season we perform just about every weekend, sometimes as much as twice a week. I always enjoy it; so does my family; we love singing and picking for the people who come to see us!
I also found out that we're going to Nashville again in June, for the Country Music Festival (Fan Fest). We'll be there for four days; I will be signing autographs and meeting the people who stop by our booth. This is the first time I have done something like this, and I am way excited!! Maybe I'll meet some big and famous bluegrassers or other big and famous country singers like Loretta Lynn, Carrie Underwood, or Garth Brooks! That would be too cool!!!!
I watched the Super Bowl last night at my church; the church had a Super Bowl Party. I was having fun, but I was rooting for the Indianapolis Colts. They lost to New Orleans; I was not happy at how the game went! I was so upset, I cried, right there in front of God and everybody! Mama had to comfort me.
I am going to go now. I am at school as I write this, and we're fixin' to go out to recess. I will write in here again soon; sorry this is so short! Take care and God bless; this is your little bluegrass pal, Colton, saying bye!
