Last week was a very busy week for Jewel. Just check out what she's been up to!
Ahhhhhhhhh...I'm gonna be famous...well almost!!! Ahhhhhhhh! I had a whole week to mull over what I was gonna ask Jewel. I sought advice from everyone I knew, and still I went with nothing planned. I didn't want to type or write my questions for fear of forgetting how to read. While waiting I did manage to write a few notes on an ATM receipt but that didn't work out so well because I forgot to take it out of my pocket until mid-interview. Line.....set list....thanks Laura.
I was SOOOO excited to win the Almost Famous contest for the Wichita show!!! I’ve enjoyed Jewel’s music for a long time but REALLY became a fan after my husband Ron (who has been a fan since “Pieces of You” came out) took me to one of her concerts a couple of years ago. Unlike some artists who sound better after studio magic has been applied to their performance Jewel sounds AWESOME live with just her pure voice. And her guitar playing made me frequently think that there had to be a second guitari
With Jewel’s birthday this weekend (on Sunday!) and so much else going on simultaneously, I thought I’d blog a sort of “Jewel info roundup,” containing the numerous updates of late in one handy place. I’ll try to do this more often as the album and tour launches. In the meantime, this should get you all caught up.
So I was sitting down to write my Almost Famous blog, and found the best songs of the nineties on VH1... What a perfect ending to my Almost Famous experience! I can't say enough about the concert, the backstage experience, and meeting Jewel. I should start at the beginning. I saw that Jewel would be performing in Vicksburg and immediately called my husband to have him order tickets. My husband saw that there was a VIP experience, but with a 14 month old, $200 concert tickets weren't really on
I'd like to thank every single person who came out to the Bluebird show last night and donated their time and funds toward Project Clean Water! The shows raised $20,000 and was a huge success thanks to all of you. I really appreciate all the support throughout the years in making the charity possible. Also, as promised, the next lyric to the next song- "What You Are." You can also click HERE for the vl
I got the most exciting email of my life five days before the Atlantic City show. "Congratulations, Ashley! You are the Almost Famous winner!!" I just sat there staring at my computer shaking with tears streaming down my face. Words can't describe how happy I was at that moment!! The only person I would ever think to bring with me to meet Jewel was Sandy (Leapbaby). I got a hold of her as soon as I could, and when I told her, she was just as excited as me! She was screaming into the phone - we wer
"You have one new message," my voicemail informed me as I left work on February 2. Absentmindedly, I began to listen to the message. Suddenly, I heard something that sparked my interest quite a bit!
Okay, first off, can I say, I've never even heard of Marshantucket? Anywho, that was Jewel's next stop. I entered the Almost Famous contest in fun; you know, you enter all these contest and don't expect to win. I was in total shock when I won not only because I won, but also because one of my best friends, Nicole, has won the almost famous contest once before!
It was one week ago today as I write this, that I met the lovely Jewel. It’s something I never actually thought would happen to me and still can’t believe it did (thanks Whitney!).
A couple of quick updates for you. First, I just completed posting all the February 2009 concert setlists, which are now available in the Library. I also made a few corrections so that now all the January setlists are accurate and complete. You can access all of Jewel's 2009 setlists by navigating to “set lists” from the “Library” menu. They are in chronological order, so scroll down once you are there to view all the newly added setlists.
Hi All, As you may know by now, sessions are well underway for Jewel’s next album. The video shoot for her new single, “Stay Here Forever,” was completed this week and you'll be seeing it soon. Many things are coming together simultaneously, including tour dates being planned for June, and we'll keep you informed as these things progress. In the meantime, theres a lot already going on.
Seasons Greetings All,
2009 has been the most enjoyable year for us yet. As the year end approaches, we want to THANK YOU for your continued encouragement and support.
Just returning from an enjoyable New England-style Thanksgiving on Cape Cod with four generations of family and mountains of food. Hope all of you in the U.S. are having an equally enjoyable holiday weekend and that everyone else is doing well. Popping in this morning with various updates and reminders about Jewel’s upcoming TV appearances.
Two new Jewel-related features now online:
You may have caught Jewel introducing one of CNN's 2009 Top 10 Heroes on Larry King's program last week. In conjunction with CNN's Heroes, Jewel discusses her Project Cleanwater/Give A Drop campaign at CNN.com's "2009 CNN Heroes: Sharing The Spotlight: Jewel." Enjoy watching this and learn more about Project Cleanwater Read More
Here are a few TV updates for you, including premiere airdates for CMT Pranks (where Jewel evens the score with Ty for setting her up on Punk’d two years ago) and the HGTV holiday special shot at the ranch a few weeks ago. As always, check your local listings to be sure of broadcast times in your area. Tune in, Alan
During her recent return to Alaska, one of the most enjoyable moments for Jewel (not to mention the audience) occurred at the tail end of her 2nd night in Anchorage, when she got a rare opportunity to perform with her younger brother, Atz Lee, who also opened both concerts. A multi-instrumentalist and songwriter himself, some of you may recall Atz Lee occasionally joining Jewel onstage during the 1999 Spirit Tour and most notably during her performance on Austin City Limits the followin
Since quite a few of you requested them, I thought I’d post the three most recent setlists from Jewel’s recent return to Alaska between Dave and Brianna’s “Almost Famous” blogs for the two Anchorage concerts. For those of you interested in these things, every 2009 setlist is now available here on the site by navigating to the Library and clicking "set lists." (Scroll all the way down for the most recent which now continue on a second page.) Otherwise, here’s a condensed summary of the A
