One Night Standards

1) The video for this song takes place in a motel and the story is told from the point of view of the desk clerk. Have you ever worked in a hotel, motel, or bed-and-breakfast? I have not

2) Ashley McBryde sings that she's not Cinderella, a reference to the fairy-tale heroine warned to return from the ball before midnight. When did you recently stay up until the wee small hours of the morning? well, as a matter of fact, last night!  I was finishing a book.

3) Ashley had been working hard as a singer/songwriter for eleven years before she was discovered and proclaimed one of County's best new artists. What was your life like 11 years ago? I don't think it was very different than now...

4) Ashley is from Mammoth Springs, AR. One of the most popular stops on Main Street -- for locals and tourists alike -- is Spring Dipper Ice Cream. More than 20 flavors are made right there on the premises, from Jamoca Almond Fudge to French Vanilla. When confronted with such a wide selection, do you tend to order your familiar favorite or try something new? I usually try something new--but I do have my favorites

5) In 2007, she moved to Nashville to pursue a music career. Have you ever relocated for a job? yes, I wish I hadn't

6) Whenever Ashley hears a Carpenters song, she thinks of her mother, who loved Karen Carpenter's voice. Tell us a song that reminds you a loved one. Peter, Paul, and Mary's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" reminds me of my mum.

7) In 2019, the year this song was recorded, Notre Dame Cathedral was damaged in a fire. Have you ever visited Paris? I have--it was magnificent

8) Also in 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (aka Harry and Meghan) had a baby boy. Is anyone in your life expecting a baby? not now

9) Random question: Do you always want to hear the truth about yourself? uh... no

I just recorded "Leaving on a Jet Plane" but can't decide if I am doing it well enough to put it up on my blog.

Thanks for sharing your answers. It's fun to read how others respond. "Leaving On A Jet Plane" is a nice oldie. I don't have any special memories tied to it, though. Enjoy your weekend and feel free to pop over to check out how I replied to this week's meme. ~ Cathy

I was thinking about this and trying to pinpoint when life stops saving at a rapid rate. 11 years ago, my nephew was 10, sleeping in the top bunk of a bunk bed (he used both the mattress and under bed area of the bottom bunk for storage) with a half dozen plush toys, and he dreamed of going to Hogwarts. I saw a lot of him at my niece's wedding and he's a man now. Whereas I'm pretty much who I was 11 years ago.
