Been with her since the start, well her start in Santa Cruz anyway. Mike was just picking up the pedal steel. He rocked it tonight and so did she, her confidence level up to 11 since those early days in that Seacliff beach bar, now belting it out without reserve. She reminds us ‘grace is hell to keep’ but she does it oh so sweetly. So glad I can be your groupie Amee Chapman. Keep rockin it. And your boys too.
