Why Haven’t I Written?

Why Haven’t I Written?

NO!  I am not breaking up with you!  In Fact, I love you very much.  I love when you watch my videos.  I love when you comment on my blogs and I love when I see you out at shows.

I find it strangely humorous that you want to hear Free Bird despite my insistence that it is an over played song.

I love that you are convinced I should try out for The Voice and its that kind of support that keeps me going every week.

But why do you stay in MN Jud?  Why are you not doing bigger things? 

Some great questions!  But really the answers are not really satisfying. 

I am  a committed husband and father of two.  I believe that I am in the right place in my career right now.  I am happy with everything the local music industry has to offer.

Let me pose a question though…

Name the last five winners of the Voice from the top of your head?  Heck Name the last Three!

I bet you struggled to remember (unless you are an avid follower).  You see, I think that the hardest part of being on a contest show like this is the follow up.

Anyways, my kids are super young and I really like being close to home. 

Thanks for hanging with me and I will see you at a  show soon!


P.S.  Get your Twenty18 Shirt today and you will get a special EXTRA gift with every order!

The Battle With The Giant

The Battle With The Giant

What a great season it was with Giants Ridge.  I put a close on 2017 with a huge party up there.  Seemed like last year this time when I played there for the first time…

Actually, it was this time last year. Ha  If you joined my there this last weekend thanks for an amazing week!

On another great note!  I picked up another house gig at Luckys 13 in Burnsville! Wahoo Every month the second Thursday @ 5pm

If you haven’t been there you need to find time to make it out to a show!

Likewise, I have a super cool segment I am releasing within my weekly videos call Brews and Eats with Badass Peeps!

I am super excited about this segment.  Keep your eyes peeled on Youtube for the next video!

BTW, now that the summer is coming to an end I am changing out the some of the shirts.  So get yours before they are gone!

I didn’t See That Coming

I didn’t See That Coming

Wahoo!  You guys rock!  Last week we sang for over 1000 new people and we gained almost 200 new fans online! 

I have to be honest, nothing feels better than meeting new music lovers like yourself.  I thought I was passionate about music until I meet you guys.

Nathan and I played in Baxter MN at Maddens Resort for a 2 night 4 show wine and food festival.

From the very start it was dancing and singing.  I loved how fast people ate just to get up and dance with us on the first night.

During our time off Nathan I headed to The Gull Dam Brewery for some delicious beer and a packed house full of dog owners.

It was a soft week!  Meaning I only played 4 shows.  I apologize to those of you that went to B52’s and I wasn’t there (communication error).  I will make it up to you this week for sure!

Last week was really a great week!  I released my rendition of Allman Brothers-Midnight Rider!  To which, I am very proud of.  One Fran(Friend + Fan) thought I should release the TBT early in the week.  Then of Thursday do a live session.

I am curious what you think.  Reply to this email if you think I should release the TBT songs early to you amazing music lovers.

On another note, Season 2 Episode 2 of the Vlog was released last week on youtube.  Its really about exploring different places.  If you haven’t yet check it out here:  https://youtu.be/IjLYUJQslfE

I Totally Lost My Voice!

I Totally Lost My Voice!

Such a super busy and HOT summer!  I hope you have had the chance to to enjoy a show near you!  If not there is plenty of opportunity for you!  This year marks the busiest summer I have had yet!

I am enjoying it!  Yet if you catch a Sunday afternoon show you will defiantly hear the week wearing on my vocal cords. ( a first this year was losing my voice!) Click here for more show dates

I recently went to San Francisco to perform at a wedding.  While I was there I had the opportunity to do a lot of really cool stuff!  I got it on film and put together a little video.

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a peek at it and let me know what you think.

It was an amazing trip!  But the minute I landed in SF I felt a fever coming on.  By 9pm I had a full blown fever.  I tried to sleep it off (quite frankly I thought I was a bit slow from the beer I had the night before).  Although, by morning I had a full blown Swollen throat.

I waited 24hrs before it was confirmed Strep from the Oakland urgent care.  After explaining that I was here to perform for a wedding in 10hrs they pumped me full of antibiotics and steroids!

I was feeling amazing by 5:00pm that day!  Thank goodness for that.  The wedding was amazing and I was able to sing all night without issue.

This summer I released the new store on judhailey.com!  The reaction to the store as been amazing!  When I started adding products I was quick to add anything.

I promised I would add something new each week.  Yet as (unfortunately) summer starts to turn to Fall I have slowed down on adding stuff.

The reason is I have been hand picking stuff for a NEW Line called the Signature Series.  I pumped for this series and I know you will love it too!

Anyways!  Here is a quick preview of one of the new Signature Series items.

Do you see that!  Thats right VIP holders you are in luck!  This is the first series that you can get at cost! Plus you will have early access to the limited products!  Thanks for being a member!

If you aren’t a member yet don’t worry.  The next enrollment will be SEPT 1st.  You will have to wait until then.

In my next email I will include a link to reserve your spot.  Until then!
