The Release Party was held at Douglas Corner in Nashville which hit capacity and the album went #14 on iTunes! It was recieved widely and loved nationwide. She describes it as a "Coming of Age" album about what she's learned in the 5 years since releasing her last album. It is divided into two parts: "Anchor" & "Wings", with a poem preluding each half. She says "Being Crazy Ain't For The Weak" is the most vulnerable piece of work she's ever put out and is quite literally a page from her diary...or rather, 100 pages.
