A note from BettySoo



What's next?

December 13, 2021

Almost two full years after my last real tour dates, I am returning to play some shows in January 2022, and I'm thrilled to be touring opening for James McMurtry -- one of my all-time songwriting heroes.  Every time I write, speak, or think this, I can hardly believe it.  We will be moving along the Gulf Coast and up the eastern seaboard, then across and down the middle of the country. 

I'd be lying if I said I am feeling totally anxiety-free and ready to hit the road hard.  Half of me is, but half of me is nervous as all get-out for several reasons:

  • I haven't toured in a long time
  • What will the pandemic will look like?
  • I haven't toured in a long time

By the way, if you are eligible for the vaccine and have not yet received your shots, please consider getting vaccinated.  I know it can be a bit scary to put things into your body you feel unsure about, but remember: this virus is killing or adversely affecting many more people than the vaccines are.  Nothing in life is certain nor guaranteed, but looking back at the statistics, the numbers are clearly on the side of getting vaccinated. 

I am grateful for your time and your support.  Your mercy has carried me through these past couple of years, and I wouldn't have survived without you.  


Every living thing could use a little mercy now.
I know we don't deserve it, but we need it anyhow.
