Alex Cartwright

Metropolitan Coffee,  Hutchinson, KS

ALEX CARTWRIGHT . . . I had the chance to meet Alex last night and hear her in concert at Metropolitan Coffee in Hutchinson, KS.  What a treat!  

Alex was wearing a black t-shirt which explained who she was and where she was playing Saturday night.  She told the audience that before her gig on Saturday evening, Alex and her husband had taken their son to the Kansas State Fair.  She decided that since she was going to be walking around at the fair she might as well advertise her performance later in the evening.  She was literally a walking bill board as she walked the fairgrounds.  Many people noticed and walked up to her and asked her about her shirt.  No word yet as to if it attracted fans to hear her sing.

Alex is friendly and outgoing.  She writes all her own songs.  Alex has written a song entitled "Blanket in the Backyard" which has all the sounds of a Nashville hit.  In fact, a female Nashville recording artist has expressed interest in recording this song.  Here's hoping that artist comes through on her promise because if she does, Alex's star will take off in directions I'm sure she never even imagined.

If you get a chance to see Alex in concert, make sure that you go.  You won't regret it.  Her music is amazing.
