Jewel checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@jewel) on Thursday (August 5), talking about how she’s going to motorcycle across America with her husband Ty Murray, leaving a compressed schedule to promote her new album ‘Sweet and Wild’. Jewel writes:
As you guys know, Ty and I did a crazy thing – we decided to ditch work for 2 months and ride our motorcycles across America! Didn’t I just release a new album? Yes I did! Shouldn’t I be out there promoting it more? Probably! But I have been making and releasing albums and touring my tail feathers off for so long that there has never been time to do something like this! So Ty and I thought if we don’t do it now, we never will! We just have to make the time!
With that thought in mind, I planned this summer’s album launch and tour to be very intense and very packed together, allowing myself to take these two months off.
