I’m going to be on the radio!?!?

Be jealous!

So Thanksgiving is what I would consider a very BUSTLING time of the year.  I tend to get overwhelmed by the crowds and sheer amount of activity (and that’s saying a lot for me.)  At the same time however, it really is what I would consider a “warm” time of the year for my family.  I love getting to see and spend time with everyone.

There’s nothing more I’ve loved over the years than to be crowded around the fire with my whole family and just talk late into the evening.

This year, I have TONS to be thankful for, but most recently: MY SONG IS GOING TO BE ON THE RADIO!?! Seriously, I am just overwhelmingly blessed sometimes. I got the email just yesterday morning, and my name went up on the website today. 94.9 The Bull has a program called “Backyard Country” that local musicians can submit to have their songs played on the radio.  Well, I’m going to be on the radio this Saturday November 26, 2011 around 9PM!

As part of the program, there is a voting poll for listeners, friends, and fans to vote for their favorite artist. The top 4-5 artists get to come back weekly! The link is: http://www.949thebull.com/pages/backyard_country.html Please log on to the website and vote for me and my song!

Co-written by: Lyndsay Ricketson

Magic #72!


72!?! That’s how many of you came to see me in Sweeney Todd. I couldn’t have been more blessed and honored to have each of you in the audience.

Thank you so much for your support and love during these past three weeks (and even before that)! I look forward to more opportunities to perform for you all in the future! I have compiled pictures with the people I could catch after the show from this past weekend.  Later this week I hope to add some behind the scenes pics and cast pictures!

(If you have pictures that you took with me after the show please email them to me, as I would like to have copies!)

Many of you who could not make the show sent me notes and messages wishing me many “broken legs” and lots of promised prayers.  To those of you who were in the audience in spirit you are just as essential and appreciated as the ones who I got to see in the flesh.

For those of you who brought me flowers, I cannot begin to express how much it made me feel loved and appreciated. (I felt like a true “STAR!”)  I could almost envision myself in a dressing room with flowers adorning my dressing table and me with my feet up eating bon bons. 😉 You know, the good life.  But truly, it was such a heartfelt way to express your encouragement and support.

I genuinely think I must be the most fortunate girl alive to have such a supportive family and friend base. You guys are one of the HUGE reasons I can get out of bed every morning and do what I love with total abandon.  Thank you again for being a part of my life, and I look forward to the next show!

So much LOVE to all of you!

(In tribute to the cast of Sweeney Todd, whom I danced with to this song on stage yesterday…love you all!)

And the “Tale” continues…

I can’t believe there are only 4 more performances of Sweeney left!  It has been such a blessing and adventure thus far, and I look forward to standing on stage with my fantastic cast for one more weekend!

Me with Bryan Mercer as "Judge Turpin"

This past weekend was full of family and more familiar faces! I once again have posted a gallery to share a few snapshots from the weekend.  There were more that came, notably some of my Berry Professors and Faculty that drove all the way down from Rome, GA to see me perform.  Since they had to leave early I was unable to get a picture with them, but they came non-the-less and that means more than anything!

Once again, thanks to all of you BEAUTIFUL people that have come out to support me, and to those of you who have sent me well wishes and many broken legs! I love you all, and hope to see more of you at these last 4 performances!

Attend the Tale! ~Lyndsay~

Opening Weekend of Sweeney…

Hello all!

I saw many wonderful faces at the opening weekend of Sweeney Todd and it was such a blessing to have each of you there!  While I was unable to get pictures with everyone, I wanted to post a couple of them here to give a shout out to those of you I did get to see!

(As a side note…some of the pictures I did get came out blurry…and some were too blurry to post. Grr camera…I really do need a new one.)
