Tallest Man-Bhang-BOW SONG!  , great arrangment good singing nice song

great playing and very good production

Lady... you are my new most favorite artist. Hands down. Your style is so eclectic and diverse... and the professional quality of your productions is something to which I aspire. Gonna buy your album... any chance of getting a signed copy or a signed photo/poster? (Told you I'm a serious fan!)

BTW... I LOVE "I Don't Care"! The guitar playing reminds me of my old friend Ernie Smith. And your arrangement of "The Star Spangled Banner" is nothing short of brilliant. Mucho kudos! -sister sunshine

Well-Deserved Megalomania:

If this term were in the dictionary, your picture would surely have to follow.
: )

If I were as accomplished as you are, I'd make it all about me, too! You have plenty of reason to crow. But sister... you should be world famous by now. You should be on the radio everywhere. It kinda pisses me off I have to put in a CD to hear you... what if my CD player breaks? How will I get my Bonnie fix?

Honestly. I would promote you a thousand ways to Sunday if you want me to.
Sign me...
A loyal and sincere fan

P.S. I put some of your tunes on a CD (labeled, of course so they know who you are!) and have already begun to add to your south Florida fan base. Just wait 'til they see my official copy of your CD!

Hi Bonnie,

I am joining your fan club because I am a 'fan' of yours.   I love it that you are different, a little 'out of the box' should we say???   I love that.  I think you will like my new style of country music because it is different and out of the box.  I know that because Nashville is saying that I am 'too different'!   Too me that means 'SUCCESS'!!!!   KEEP IT UP!!!!

your fan BECCA
