This is such an honor for me and as I write this post, it feels as though my heart is going to explode and my fingers are shaking so badly it is difficult to type!

I was lucky enough to be part of the winning band at the inaugural Midwest CMA’s 80’s themed Mix-Up! What a blast!

Here’s the short version of my story:

At the ripe old age of 35 (just kidding, I won’t complain about my age!), I recently completed around 32 years of performing in the creative arts. I started as a ballerina in my birth state of Rhode Island and my path slowly lead to music, which has now been my career for around the last 10 years.

I’ve been blessed to dance, sing, choreograph, record and play with so many talented and amazing artists (I literally can’t even count them all). I’ve also had the chance to perform at some truly amazing venues for wonderful audiences all over the Midwest, and have made incredible friendships with fans, colleagues, and venue staff and owners.

While it’s not a glamorous life like some might think, I am able to support a modest lifestyle while doing what I love. The best part is that I get to share it with others who love creativity as much as I do. And the constant support of my craft from others is an honor I do not take lightly.

Thank you to everyone who nominated me for this very special award. And thank you, as always, for supporting independent artists!

XOXO’S Love, Swanny Rose ⚘

PS. One of my duet partners, Joe Flip, and my former band, Girls Night Out: A Tribute To The Superstar Women of Women Of Country were also nominated! Congratulations to them all!

PPS. Make sure to BUY TICKETS to the awards show. Over 30 Midwest CMA members will be performing live! That’s a whole lotta talent, and I promise…it’s going to be spectacular! 💖
