Erin McCarley checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@erinmccarley) on Thursday (May 20), discussing what she’s been up to since she last posted last year. The Nashville, Tennessee singer songwriter tells readers:
Well. Wow. I think we last spoke in 2009. Thank you so much for every single encouraging word, hug, twitter, download, etc these past two years. You remind me everyday why I’m doing this crazy music thing. You’ve helped me sniff out a little more confidence in myself and filled me with so much joy. On days I didn’t think I could do it, I always received an email or some form of communication showing you were affected by my music. It means more than you can imagine.
My life since December has been drastically different. Mainly, I’ve been in one place instead of fifty. Even better, I’ve done laundry on a regular basis and been able to go grocery shopping!!! The reason for this new “domestic” routine is I’ve been writing my new record! After almost two years on the road, my soul needed a regroup and restoration process to start creating again.
Erin McCarley took Teen Vogue on a tour of her apartment as she prepared to go on tour in support of her debut album ‘Love, Save the Empty’. “I have a feeling this is gonna be very girly, so beware boys,” Erin warned before talking about the tour schedule, showing the bathtub in her home that she posed in front of for her album cover, and selecting makeup and clothing to bring out on the road. Watch the clip and view the tour schedule after the cut. (more…)
Erin McCarley spoke with the Orlando Sentinel in a Q&A, asking the singer songwriter who has been taking cost cutting measures on the road, to using a tour van to making bids on Priceline at each tour stop, how hard it is to make it right now. “With being a new artist, there are so many new bands out there,” Erin explained. “There is more music than ever right now, and people have shorter attention spans than ever. I was looking through Spin magazine, looking at all the festivals, schedules and seeing all these bands that I’ve never heard of in my life, but they have followings. It is pretty crazy, it’s crazy. You have to come up with your own marketing campaign. You have to be the President of the United States and tout around each city and win them over. That’s what I feel like I am doing right now. It’s just about a song; it all boils down to a song. If people connect to that song, then they latch on and want to get to know the artist. So, it does boil down to the songwriting. There are exceptions, some have more gimmicks. I know, for me, I don’t have any gimmicks. I am not saying that is a good thing, some people are rally talented at other things, but my voice and my songs are what I have, so I just hoping that people hear it, connect and want to know more about me.” Read more.

Erin McCarley visited Fox 4 in Dallas, Texas on Thursday (October 16) to perform ‘Pony’ on ‘Good Day Dallas’ ahead of her concert at House of Blues on the Hotel Café Tour. Afterwards, the Garland native spoke with the hosts about being back home and hoping to see friends and family at the HoB show. “I hope so,” she said. “I’ve been getting the most random facebook, MySpace messages from people in elementary school and up, so it’s been really fun to reconnect.” She compared the January release of her album to a political campaign, touring and doing promo as the buildup.
The performance and interview at myfoxdfw.com has since been removed.
