I remember mine. I had been nominated many times for IBMA’s Bass Player of the Year. I was good with that. But then, they called my name and everything changed. At the time I didn’t fully grasp that I was part of something bigger – the times they were a changing – and I was along for the ride. Today, my companions on this fantastic journey are Alison Brown, Sierra Hull, Becky Buller, and Molly Tuttle. Each of them, like me, the first woman to receive an IBMA award on her instrument. The song I chose for us? Swept Away written by my hero and friend, Laurie Lewis, a grand pioneer who continues to lead the way for generations of women (and men) to follow. One beautiful late summer day, we came together as friends to record this tune – jubilantly creating a bit of history, yet reluctant to call it so. After all, this is what we do, every day. So I couldn’t be more excited to share with you, Swept Away, from my upcoming record, Royal Traveller. The record is produced by Alison Brown and features a long list of celebrated guests including these 4 history-makers, Tim O’Brien, Amy Ray, Claire Lynch, Trent Wagler, and many more.”
Missy Raines - "Allegheny Town" (Official Music Video)
Listen to my new album 'Royal Traveller' here: https://CompassRecords.lnk.to/royaltravellerID I grew up in the Allegheny mountains of West Virginia, leaving home at eighteen to follow my dreams. I didn’t realize then the cost of time away from loved ones - time you never get back. I wrote this song “Allegheny Town” for my family, for those who went searching and perhaps more importantly, for those who stayed behind.

Lean In Toward The Light - By Carrie Newcomer
Lean In Toward The Light - Words and Music by Carrie Newcomer ©2016 Carrie Newcomer Music (BMI), Administered by BMG Chrysalis "I believe longing toward something that as sacred and whole is part of the human condition. To lean into the light and into hope is not about wishful or positive thinking. Hope is about doing the heart opening and gritty daily work of getting up each morning and trying again (each in our own way) to make the world just a little kinder place. To be cynical is so easy. When you are cynical, you are never disappointed. But when you choose to hope, to take the risk that eventually your heart will be broken- and then to get up the next morning and try again. Hope is the conscious choice to live leaning into something of reason and light."
You Can Do This Hard Thing
You Can Do This Hard Thing - By Carrie Newcomer From "The Beautiful Not Yet" on Available Light Records This is another song written for a spoken word and song collaboration with Parker J. Palmer and Gary A. Walters "What We Need is Here: Hope, Hard Times and The Human Possibility." Feel free to share this with someone who has helped you in hard times - or perhaps you'd like to encourage today. For more information about "The Beautiful Not Yet visit www.carrienewcomer.com Barbara Kingsolver has written about a phrase she uses to encourage her children, “You can do hard things.” I loved this idea behind this phrase. It absolutely acknowledges the difficulty of the task at hand, and yet, at the same time it completely affirms that the child has everything they need to move forward, and that they have support. I began to think about all the times in my own life that someone has given me that kind of sound advice and encouragement.
