“My wife wears a lot of hats and with the help of the good Lord, she wears them all well.  She proudly showcases her love for our marriage, our family and the work we do together in music – she’s an amazing woman.  I often tell people, to be moved by her voice, to find pieces of yourself within the lyrics of her songs… these things only ignite the infatuation.  But to see her live, to witness her shed tears of joy & pain as she sings, to connect with her when she laughs and flashes that gorgeous smile – that is where the true love affair with Gabbie McGee begins...You have to see her.  You have to see her do what she was born to do.”

-George Kelly, Jr.
