My Show Dress for the Hey Hear Me Now Summer Spectacle Tour 2013

Hey friends. Carter Parton Rogers here. I’m right in the middle of preparin’ for The Hey Hear Me Now Summer Spectacle Tour 2013 that opens this Friday night! (You can read about that and RSVP by clickin’ right here.)

I love to put together my own show dress to perform in…you can see here what I put together for my Holiday Variety 1/2 hour in 2012 and now I’m at it again! Another show means another dress! And that is sooooo excitin’ to me!

This is how I dream of my Summer Spectacle Tour show dress lookin’…like this Simplicity Dress Pattern from the Vintage Sewing Patterns website. Oh how gorgeous!!!

But I don’t know how to sew, so I’m not sure how it’s gonna turn out with just pins and tyin’ fabrics and things together over a simple pink dress I have already. I went to my favorite place…JoAnn Fabrics and got some beautiful fabrics…

I spotted colors that say “SUMMER” to me so I thought some of these would be perfect for my Summer Spectacle Tour show dress…

Here’s all the different colors and styles that I got…now they are all sittin’ on my floor next to the scissor and pins…

Wish me good wishes on this adventure…I will share on Friday “SHOW DAY” how it turns out! I’m sure I’ll surprise myself with the results.

Storytime with Carter Parton Rogers! Oh Horses!

Hey sweet friends. Carter Parton Rogers here. I wanted to share a little story with you that I just thought to tell you…

You know that time of day? The time of day when you panic in your mind because you remember how far behind you think you are? You know what I have to say about this time of day…”Let’s just slow our horses a little and be patient, maybe the horse would like to look at the view or have a drink of water out of the stream, or MAYBE the horse can’t think of anything to do about anything and the horse is havin’ a real hard time thinkin’ of somethin’ to write”. I just realized this story is less about a horse than it is about me. Was that obvious?

How to go after Your Dreams!

Hello dear friends. Carter Parton Rogers here. I was just sittin’ here reflectin’ about how far I’ve come since I decided I was gonna pursue my dream of bein’ a country music singin’ sensation at the Grand Ole Opry. To the outside world it might not look like that far. But to me. Well. When I first picked up my guitar almost a year ago I didn’t know which end was up and what note was what…a fret? a chord? a SONG? Nothin’. Here’s proof in my very first video blog where I state to the world that I’m gonna go after my dreams. You will see how much I (don’t) know.

I even put on my own variety show. Ya’ll! Now I was no where near perfect with my music at the time and I’m still not. But I knew a few things and I wanted to share them. So I did what I could with what I knew at the time.

And then here we are almost a year later and I have learned many many notes and chords, I can play a few songs, I found it within myself to get up and do my music in front of people many times, I know what frets are, I know what a hammer on is, I know a few bluegrass songs, I’ve had a  Facebook comment “Liked” by The Opry. And just a week or so ago I got to perform at the wonderful Kulak’s Woodshed and it was broadcast to the whole world wide web.

All this to say. If I can do it…ya’ll sure can!!! And to answer what I started this blog post with…How to go after Your Dreams! Well. Here’s my thoughts on that. Step 1) Listen for what that dream is 2) Go after it!

Then yer thinkin’ “Okay Carter, but how do I go after it?”. Well you just start with one little-tiny-seems-so-simple-thing and you do one of those things each day. For me it was learnin’ a new note, or a new chord, or decidin’ to stand on a stage and share my dream and the little tiny bit of music I knew so far. And really it’s about bein’ the one, even if it’s just you, that keeps on believin’. Hold tight and preciously those glimpses of dreams and hope that are carried so delicately on the wind like when you wish on a Dandelion. Careful with your wishes that you gently keep them afloat and keep them away from the stormy weather that is your doubts. Ya’ll gotta know I’m sayin’ all this to myself just as much. We all need some support and encouragement every once in a while, even if it comes from our ownselves. Did I just make up some new words?

Hope ya’ll’ll join my Dream Pursuin’ Dream Board Project. It’s fun and a great way to take that first step…state to the world what your dream is.

And like I say at all my shows…I wish you all your dreams!

Singin’ and Dreamin’ – Carter
