Update: Ran into Savanna and she’s on the road trying to put together her second album. If you feel like helping click here.
In her words “Stitches & Scars album will be all about taking risks, making mistakes, heartbreak, and the scars we earn along the way.As always, I intend to stay true to my roots, and deliver honest, genuine country music that you can two-step, drink, cruise or cry to. No pop nonsense.”
Help her make it happen!
