On Winning the National Indie Excellence Award

It's crazy that during a pandemic somebody can be as bizzy as I am, but I've been seriously bizzy and there you have it! I tell you this as a way of explaining WHY I haven't, until now, sat down to share my news.

I was at work the other day (I'm an, 'essential worker') when I got a text from my amazing editor Stephanie Gunning saying, "Whhhhhoooohoooooo you WON the National Indie Excellence Award!!!!!! Congratulations!!!! You are also a finalist for HUMOR!"  Read more about On Winning the National Indie Excellence Award »

Catching Up

Many of you know by now that I am an, 'accidental writer', but what you may not know is about a week before I published Life is Good; Wit and Wisdom from a Vermont Homesteader (LiG), right in the middle of launch crazies, my editor called me and said, "OK, have you started your next book yet?" I almost fainted.  Read more about Catching Up »


Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. As I mentioned in my last blog, it was a tough winter. BUT the good news is Spring is here and it's time for renewal. More good news is that I've started recording again and things are moving forward on my Wild Women Don't Get the Blues project. Got the vocals done on my song Give Me Wings and on the romantic From the Rodeo to Rodeo Drive. Next up is Lonely Angels Weep: can't wait to get that done!  Read more about Renewal »

Don't Know Where I'm, But I'm Mighty Glad To Be Here!

Which is the story of my life! Hi Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. Thought you might as well know that about me up front. See, I live by many, many motto's and one of them is without a doubt, "Don't know where I am, but I'm mighty glad to be here!" Seems, I've always been that way. Now you might ask yourself why is it I'm telling you this?!? The answer lies in the email I was just telling you about.  Read more about Don't Know Where I'm, But I'm Mighty Glad To Be Here! »

Hillsdale Artswalk & "Groupies"!

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here on this bright, sunshiny, albeit chilly morning! DId I mention that I was asked to play the Hillsdale, NY ArtsWalk (which I did last Saturday, Sept. 12) by the lovely and talented Miss Christina Dellea? It was a really nice event with lots of cool and beautiful art in the lovely small town of Hillsdale. I was lucky enough to play early and it was an absolutely perfect early fall morning, kinda like this one now! Better yet? I had a couple of 'groupies' show up!  Read more about Hillsdale Artswalk & "Groupies"! »

Sooooo Long

It's 2 days before Christmas and yesterday the snow melted here in my tiny corner of the Berkshire Mountains. I LOVE a white Christmas, but then again I'm from the Northeast, right where Millerton, NY, Sharon, Ct., Lakeville, Ct. and Berkshire County, MA. meet. It's a gorgeous part of the world and there are times when you walk out your door you can imagine what life must have been like for folks who lived here 200 years ago… As I said, the bad news is the snow melted and there is none in the foreseeable future which means a brown Christmas -argh.  Read more about Sooooo Long »

One thing leads to another...

Hey There, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. Wanted to share a really nice happenstance. So I told you that I played the Hillsdale, NY ArtsWalk! last week and then just yesterday I received not 1 but 2 invitations to play; The first is the Hillsdale, NY Pumpkin Fest. I am SO excited because I LOVE events like that - such a piece of Americana history!!!! And then, I was invited to play the Copake/Hillsdale Farmers Market. Food, music, pumpkins…doesn't get better than that does it?

Hope you're well and have a WONDERFUL day,

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here with you on this chilly summer morning! "Confession?" you're asking, well yes. Confession. See it has to do with the fact that I do NOT love summer heat/weather, rather I LOVE CHILLY and even COLD weather. A fact that horrifies my summer, hot weather loving friends. And this morning feels like a perfect October morning; Chilly, very chilly!  Read more about Confession... »
