Reagan Boggs was riding a wave of critical acclaim when in 2009 she gave birth to her first son.  Priorities changes and the Virginia native began to shift her focuss on family as she took a break from a near constant touring schedule.  "You kind of go through a period where you learn about who you are outside of music," Boggs says.  "You find interests that you didn't even know you had.  But it left a really big hole there."

While Boggs is not complaining about her choice of spending time with her young son, a theme developed as she began writing her current album, Quicksand.

"This album represents the constant tug-of-war that can go on in the mind between hopes and expectations and the reality of what is known as 'life' happens," she explains.  "It illustrates the diffficulty of chnge and how easily we are drug down by acceptance."

The "quicksand" theme resonates throughout the 13 songs on the album, revealing a raw side that crosses a range fo emotions from insecurity, hopelessness, loss and revelation.  With her rich voice, she strips bare stark realities, feeelings and situations that trap peple in jobs, places, and relationships.  The ablum is not at all "depressing," she says with a laugh.  While the overall mood may be serious, "thesee are the things we struggle with, or at least I do."

Singer-songwriter Kaitlyn Baker’s music reflects the beauty of the Cumberland Mountains and the ruggedness of the coal-mining culture in which she was raised.

White says, “I was also nominated in 2011 for the same award and it is certainly a tremendous honor.
