Cathy DeWitt is one of our bestest friends. We could tell you all about THAT, but it would take several hundred blogs, so we’ll just tell you this one story.

On our last evening in Gainesville, we were driving through UF campus as Cathy’s Sunday afternoon show, Across the Prairie, came over the air on UF’s NPR station, WUFT-FM.  So we were running errands listening to Cathy on the radio and after Cathy’s show ended, we decided to go surprise her on campus so we could see her one last time.

So we are sneaking up to the radio station hoping to catch Cathy as she’s leaving the station. As we’re pulling up, we hear a car honking excitedly behind us.  Looking in the mirror, we realize it’s Cathy following us!  Cathy was headed OFF-campus as we were headed ON-campus, when she noticed our car and got curious about what WE were doing on campus!

What a treat!  Just had a wonderful breakfast with our dear sweet friend Jonell Mosser.  Jonell suggested this terrific artisan cafe, Marche down in the five points area of Nashville.  We had salmon with capers, onions and  crème fraîche (how fancy is that!) and deep chocolatey coffee roasted right here in Nashville.  We savored every morsel.

Jonell is one of the sweetest people you’d ever hope to meet.  She has a big heart and often lends her considerable talents to benefit concerts whose work is making a difference in this crazy world.

If you’ve never heard Jonell sing … you simply must.  Jonell is amazing and her vocals have graced many a recording project.  Jonell’s website is http://www.jonellmosser.com .

One of my favorite tracks of Jonell is her blazing version of Robert Johnson’s Crossroads from the Boys on the Side soundtrack.

Jonell’s voice is earthy, bluesy and soulful – one of my dreams (this is Kiki writing) is to hear Greg and Jonell sing a duet together.  I can only imagine those two powerhouses teaming up.
