keep following your heart

<span style="font-size: 12px;">Dudes &amp; Dudettes,</span>
<span style="font-size: 12px;"> Here's to you all! I hope you're having a glorious weekend. To my American friends, I hope you've recovered from Thanksgiving and all those extra days off. I've mostly been hard at work writing my next record and I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel on the writing part so good things are around the corner. I'll be telling you more about this future album as things continue. I'll probably be blowing up <a href="http://www.twitter.com/brettdetar" target="_new">twitter</a> with ramblings about lyric writing or tracking with the band and such. I'll do my best to give you insight and updates without wearing out my welcome. New record time is one of my favorite times... Also working on more tour plans too so keep your ears to the ground (or just stay with me on <a href="http://www.facebook.com/brettdetarmusic" target="_new">facebook</a>). My newly added shows are all listed below.</span>

<span style="font-size: 12px;"> watch my latest live vid: <strong>"EMPTY HOUSE ON A FAMOUS HILL" - in Salt Lake City at The State Room</strong></span>

<span style="font-size: 14px;"> <strong>MY STORE IS OPEN AGAIN WITH ALL NEW &amp; SALE ITEMS!</strong></span>
<span style="font-size: 12px;"> I had my webstore closed for a few months while I was out on the road because it was too hard to do the shipping and order fulfillment myself while I was out on tour (yes, when you order from my webstore it's me doing all the packing and shipping). A lot of you have been asking when it will be back open... well, search for your holiday gifts no longer because I've<a href="http://brettdetar.com/store" target="_new"><strong> opened the store and re-stocked it with 3 new t-shirt designs</strong></a>. I've also added <strong>CD's to the store for the first time ever</strong> aaaaaand like I'm some kind of regular wal-mart or something, I've put a couple items on <strong>50% OFF SALE</strong>! Anything you buy comes with the 4 "Bird In The Tangle" Bonus Tracks too so you can't go wrong. Most of the items were designed by yours truly and they're all high-quality stuff so<a href="http://brettdetar.com/store" target="_new"> check it out</a>.</span>
