Hello and thank you for stopping by. You've reached the stomping grounds of me, Singer/Songwriter, Anne E. DeChant.
Press... "DeChant is our wake-up call to all of the possibilities found in songs and stories when they're told with integrity, honesty and heart. She is what the future of Americana music needs to
be in order to endure."
-No Depression, Terry Roland
"There's virtue in honesty, and in intuition, and in openess, and in tough-minded decency. Those things may or may not make for fine art. In the hands, heart, and voice of Anne E. DeChant, they may, they might, and they do." -Peter Cooper, editor, Country Music Hall of Fame
“'Fly Away' is so poignant and well written it ought to be a huge country hit for someone."
-Cool Cleveland, Anastasia Pantsios

Canine Performance Sciences at Auburn University pairs puppies with inmates who assist in the training of those puppies. Using Vapor Wake Technology™, puppies are trained to detect explosive materials, in particular, those being transported bodily. The inmate training program has proven hugely successful and is now placed in 6 prisons.
One inmate who was introduced to his puppy began to cry. When asked why, he explained....He hadn't touched a dog in 40 years....

Pardon the delay on this....There are two winners of the "Where Am I" Contest because I posted on FB before my mailing sent by accident. Therefore I am awarding the first person to answer correctly on FB and the first person to answer the mailing I sent.
The winners are Eddie Vidmar and Maryhelen Mackin Chadwick. They both answered with Newark Ohio. Yes, the photo is of the Longaberger Basket Company Headquaters. But it is not in Columbus Ohio but Newark Ohio. I visited this now…
It's a big week as the RNC kicked off in Cleveland Ohio on Monday. My home city has been host to so many things this summer! I pray for peace this week as people face the challenge of acting and responding in a peaceful and respectful manner. Won't it be wonderful if this week, we can honor one another's freedom of speech and move through all activities without one violent incident? I believe we can!
I know I've shared the free download below before but I think it's…

Spring touring has been great with shows in Charlotte, Vilas, Charleston and Carrboro NC. This week I'm in Alabama. Frye and I were at Moonlight on the Mountain (it really is on a mountain) on Wednesday night. What great sound in that room and Keith and Bink could not be nicer.
Thanks too to the Pike Road Library for hosting "Watermelon…
A nice gentleman from Toronto, singer/songwriter, Kirk Felix, asked me for chords to "Go Get Joe" (free download for you below) as he would like to perform it. Rather than sending him a chord chart, I made an instructional video! I decided to share it with all of you in case you'd like to learn to play the song. I also ask that if you do, you'll send me a video of you performing it. I would love to see it. And please leave your comments for the video in the comment section…
Happy weekend to all! It's 1/2 off at Goodwill today...yooo hooo!

The winner of the "Where Am I" contest is Patti Baddour, a faithful and wonderful fan! Patti said the photo was from Toronto Ontario Canada and that is correct. Many of you guessed…
