Jessie Farrell, Jesse Tucker and Ryland Haggis rocked the Chrome Room at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino in Calgary this weekend. I was so moved by their last performance that I actually ‘teared up’ during Jessie’s beautiful love song, “Fell Right into You”.
I played a vital role as the official photographer and t-shirt model. Between lugging around the “Beast” that is my camera + flash, shooting video footage, and squeezing into the smallest “Jessie Farrell” t-shirt ever, I was definitely kept busy. Though we did find time for a few karaoke songs, copious amounts of text messaging/crackberrying, a toast or two, a nish nish or three, and a nice, juicy steak.
**I interrupt this “inside-joke” post that only 5 people will “get” to tell you the exciting news that Jessie Farrell’s first single “Let’s Talk About Love” hit the radio yesterday. So please contact your local country radio station via phone/email/web and request Jessie’s amazing song.**
And now I present: The Jessie Farrell Emerson Drive tour photo diary:

Are you ready to get “Countryfied”? I sure am.
The last official group photo and the tour comes to a close.

That’s the end of the first photo diary. Next up, personal photos of the tour and tomfoolery. Excited? I thought so.
What’s that you say? Not enough pictures of me. I know. I know. Well, when you are the photographer you don’t get to frolic around in front of the lens that much. But, you know I wouldn’t disappoint you. Here’s one for all my personal fans. I call it: Lisa doing her best to sell t-shirts (and champagne).
