Jaclyn and I had the chance to meet country music newcomer Drew Baldridge last week at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville.  And we learned that Drew is from Southern Illinois.  He grew up about a half hour from Mount Vernon.  When we caught up with Drew he was in the middle of the "biggest week of his career."  His debut CD, Dirt On Us, was released.  He appeared at the CMA Music Festival and was prepping for his first appearance at The Grand Ole Opry.  And he's going to make that big Opry debut tonight.

Here's Drew's latest single, "Dance With Ya."

We liked Drew a lot.  And we are loving this song!  This is definitely a guy to keep your eyes and ears on.
