WHAT'S NEW 'ROUND HERE?? Well it looks like my dream is finally coming true. For those of you that know me, you know that I love to sing country music. I recently started writing country music lyrics. Well, i sent them off a few weeks ago and IM ON MY WAY TO NASHVILLE! Next month I will be going to cut a record singing one of my very own songs!! So wish me luck and I will definately let you know how it went!

3-1-03 Well i finally made it to Nashville...im sure some of you already know this! I went Valentine's weekend...alone i might add...but turned out to be a very special weekend!! It was totally awesome there...didn't get to see much...was sorta busy but i finally recorded my first single..."I NEED YOU"!! Lyrics written by me and co wrote the music with David Johnson, from Nashville. The recording went great. I was a little worried cause i started to get sick after i got there...rained the entire time. Then i heard about all the snow and ice they were gettin back home and started to worry that i wasn't gonna be able to get home. I wont go into what happened after i got to the airport at home......IT WASN'T FUN!!! anyway i made it back and went right back to work. I have had my first interview with the local paper..pic was aweful! but that was pretty fun not to mention an ego boost!! Well i guess that is about it for now...just waiting to see what happens and continue writing. If anyone has any ideas for a song....please let me know..im having a bit of writers block. oh and you can hear my single on here along with another one that i co wrote while i was there but didn't record and see the newspaper interview too!!! Thanks to all of you who told me "YOU CAN DO IT"!!

Well here it is October 03 and i'm just getting around to updating you to what has been happening in my life. In May i got the news that my single made it on an album in Canada(thats where my publisher is from) called New Faces Volume 4. Im 1 of 12 artist on the album and the only one from US. The CD is going to be released in Europe, Canada and Virginia. Still unsure of the date at the time. But as soon as I know i will post it on here and let you know how you can purchase one...if interested!
In July i quit my job and started packing up everything i own and August 9th I headed for NASHVILLE. Moved in my apartment in Hermitage, TN(about10 min east of Nashville) on the 10th. Im here and i'm lovin every minute of it. Im still working as a nurse, just part time right now. The kids are both in awesome schools and doing great. Madison says she's a COWGIRL now!! Im still writing and working on some music here at home...hoping to get enough for a full CD of my own someday soon. That's basically it in a nutshell for now. Im really happy here and don't plan on moving anytime soon! Ill keep you updated on what's happening! Thanks again to all of you that believed in me! Whether i make it or not...at least i tried and im happy for once in my life!
Someone reminded me that I needed to update my site...and I guess they are right since it has been 2 years! Well not much has happened. Im still in Nashville and loving every minute of it! Im still writing and have probably written 80-90 songs now. I will be working with a co-writer and recording a demo. Im focusing more on writing now than singing...being a full time mom doesn't leave much time for singing but lots of time for writing. AND its good therapy!! Ive been working with an AWESOME female vocalist from South Georgia, now in Nashville, Shonna Montrell. She has one hell of a voice...who knows if im lucky she will be recording some of my songs someday SOON! I have put a link to her website here so be sure and check it out and leave some feedback!
Personally...life is great! Ive had my down times but in the last 4 months I feel like im on top finally! My kids are doing wonderfully..Matt is 10 now and Madison 5, she will be starting Kindergarten this year! Matt's disability is becoming a little more clear these days and he's finally making some progress...the most awesome thing that could ever happen in my life! We've finally moved out of our apartment...we have a beautiful new home. Im about to turn 34...not a bad birthday present hunh?:) I do believe i'll be staying in Nashville for quite sometime...it truly feels like home...where I was meant to be. Here when people hear me talk...the don't ask me where im from!!!!
I'll try to update this more often!
God Bless.....Robyn Leigh
MY LIL COWGIRL...AIN'T SHE KEWL!!
