Excitement was in the air all weekend for my friend Steve Brisman. Her nephew Aidan sang in the JMA Fest vocal competition on Saturday and although he didn’t win, he came in pretty high. Steve shared with me how proud he was of Aiden. Beyond their mutual love of music, they share a special bond. In January 2020, I introduced you to Steve’s sister and Aiden’s mother, Dr. Shannon Bridgemon Rinaldo, a 1991 graduate of Daviess County High School. Unfortunately, Shannon passed away on July 27, 2020, after her long battle with glioblastoma brain cancer. Steve and Aiden were there for each other through the grieving process It was a bittersweet weekend without Shannon in the crowd, but she had to be so proud of her beautiful family.

As I sit here in my home in Nashville, I can’t help but think about the journey I’ve been on over the past 7 years. This past 2 has been almost unbearable, at times. That moment when you want to text your dad or sister a picture like one of these below, but when they call my name, it wasn’t about the win, it was about the journey. Jesus Still Loves Me is a special song for many people. The journey kept changing and so did my life. My story is not over yet. ❤️ To God be the glory.”, Steve shared while reflecting on the night
