Columbia, they say is a joy: "Quaint, authentic . . . and real
The two are on a national tour, being taken in three legs - the visit to Columbia is the second one - to help boost the recording onto more national charts. Gibbs said Columbia has been her favorite spot on the tour. "It's a quaint, authentic, relaxing place to be," she said. Lansdale echoed the sentiment, "It's real," she said, "and reminds me of East Texas towns around my hometown." She's from Nacogdoches, the home of Stephen Austin University, where her father Joe Lansdale, is writer in residence and is a well-know author and martial arts expert. Her brother, Keith Lansdale is a journalist and screenwriter. She says life was always good, as a Lansdale in Nacogdoches, and that she never had any doubts that she wanted to do something special.
Aim to to move "Sorry Ain't Enough" high on national charts
Getting a song onto the national charts is one of those special things, which is why she's seeing America and promoting "Sorry Ain't Enough," the the time honored way recording artists have done for decades, personally visiting the radio stations which can make or break careers, and get them more air time.
Julie Gibb ranks Columbia No. 1 favorite on tour
She and Julie Gibb found Columbia a fascinating visit. The people, Lansdale said, have the same friendly demeanor her neighbors back in Texas said. Gibb went farther. "This has been my favorite stop on the tour," the Canadian said. "I definitely want to come back here some day.
