10 THINGS I LEARNED ABOUT TOURING WITH KIDS

CDJ

By Carolyn Dawn Johnson

1. Kids can adjust to anything.
2. Trying to do my hair and make-up with my 2 year old in my lap takes twice as long to get the job done.
3. It doesn’t matter if I go to bed at midnight or later after a show, my children still wake me up somewhere around 6am.
4. It is very hard to get in the mindset, and go get on stage when you know you just left a little baby who just wants his mama to put him to sleep.
5. Kids just really are happy as long as they have mommy and daddy
6. After traveling for many hours on a bus, a hotel room feels like a mansion.
7. It is so sweet to watch my little girl dance to my music during soundcheck.
8. Snuggling with little ones in the morning, in the back of the rolling bus watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is awesome.
9. A 2 year old and an 8 month old sleeping in the same bed, can sometimes be a disaster if one wakes up and proceeds to wake the other one up….it becomes…who can cry louder?
10.There is nothing better than having your whole family with you when you are away from home.

Brant News

by Lauren Baron – Brant News

Country singer-songwriter Carolyn Dawn Johnson was nervous stepping back on stage for the first time in four years.

“I thought: ‘I haven’t been out here in a while, how is this going to feel?’” Johnson said. “I was extra nervous, but once I got out there it felt like an old sweater.”

Johnson took the four-year hiatus so she and her husband could settle down and start a family. Now with two kids, Abigail, 2, and Bennett, 8 months, Johnson is back on tour to support her new album, Love Rules, released in August.  Read the rest of this entry »

LOVE RULES: CAROLYN DAWN JOHNSON’S HAVING IT ALL

On Tour

Heath McCoy – Calgary Herald

To focus on the hard-won career, or put it on hold to raise a family?

That’s a crossroads familiar to so many women in this day and age — and celebrated Canadian country singer-songwriter Carolyn Dawn Johnson was no different when she decided to put on the brakes and start her family a couple of years back.

But given the fast, hyper-competitive nature of the music business — and her status as a public figure a considerable fan base wants to hear from — it’s fair to say the pressures on Johnson were felt with a particular edge.
