Good-bye Australia! Hello Nashville! Renee had a great time down-under but she’s so very glad to be returning home tomorrow. She's actually boarding a plane in Australia in a few hours.
It’s apparent by all the wonderful comments we have been receiving that her Australia Master Class Tour was quite the success. But even with a grueling schedule of classes, private lessons and promotions Renee was able to slip in a little vacation time.
One of the highlights of Renee's trip was having dinner with former student and good friend Lee Kernaghan and his beautiful wife Robby. Lee, Australia's 2008 "Man Of The Year," just completed his new album "Spirit of the Anzacs" a tribute to the 8,000 Australians killed in WWWI. Traditionally a country singer, Lee's album has been #1 on the Australian charts for the last three weeks in all genres including pop. Here's a link to his current YouTube video.
Renee had an emotional few days working with 16 year old Keely Johnson in Queensland Australia. She came to Renee through Lee Kernaghan. Keely has cancer and has been diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. Through the Make A Wish Foundation, she recently had the chance to record a song and perform with her country music idol Lee Kernaghan! Click here if you would like to see the video.
