I love the word Diva. But somewhere down the line, people have defined it to mean a "difficult" (and THAT's putting it nicely) female vocalist.

However, if you look up the definition, Webster says " a usually glamourous and successful female performer or personality: a popular female singer".

If you ask me, it should continue to read ":Andrea Dawson".

As any one who has seen her perform can attest, Andrea is a natural talent - this woman was born to sing. And nothing pleases me more than to see her out and about getting to do it so much these days! You go girl indeed! Aside from being an incredible vocalist with a warm, engaging stage presence, she's got a wicked sense of humor, making her one of my favorite running buddies and partners in crime! (The trouble we've caused - whoops - I mean seen!)

So I am thrilled that she is taking time from her incredibly busy schedule to be my special guest this Thursday on BIG TEXAS BLUES. Andrea's going to come in to do the "12 Bar Blues" series. Always articulate and witty, I can't wait to hear what songs she brings in as her influences and her explanation of why they have been so.

So don't forget to tune in to KNON 89.3 FM (or worldwide on the web at morning from 9 'til Noon so you don't miss a word of it!
