Since Jul 17, 2011
I'm a new member on FR, but I've been lurking for three years over my boyfriend's shoulder, so I feel like I've been active far longer in virtuality than in reality.
I'm a Singer/Songwriter/Artist/Cowgirl thriving in Upstate New York, in a log cabin out in the woods, just the way I like it! (Thoreau made a big impression on me in high school!)
Now I have my own FReeper screen name -- "Quill Pen", in honor of the Founders of our Great Country -- and now I can tell y'all what I'm thinking! And what's on my mind right now is precious Liberty and how patriotic Americans have paid for our liberty with their lives.
I've written, recorded, and performed Country, Rock, and Blues music for all of my life, and many of my songs speak to the same values that FreeRepublic is about -- God and Country and Life and Liberty and Family, growing up in America, and the things that are really important.
I've got a new CD of Country Music just out (my fourth release) called "Horse Sense". It has my new song "It's A Free Country", a patriotic song dedicated to never forgetting the real reason we Americans are so fortunate to have the freedoms we enjoy.
"It's A Free Country" is a song that every American should hear, especially patriotic Americans like those of us on FreeRepublic, so I invite you to check it out:

The single "It's A Free Country" is available as an MP3 for download now at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/carolynowen5.
"I'm Tougher" is a song about how life has its challenges but the goal is to meet them headlong and beat them! The video for the song is available on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzciaTMb-GY and has clips of some great horse-riding you might enjoy! "Dream Big!" is a song about growing up with BIG dreams and making them come true, in this wonderful, blessed land called America! This video is on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCcx3S_lzqo and I sure wish you would check it out! My latest CD "Horse Sense" is available for purchase or download at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/carolynowen3 and also iTunes.
I've posted the videos of two of the songs from the album, "I'm Tougher" and "Dream Big!", up on YouTube (see just above this).
"Blues Live!" is available for purchase or download at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/carolynowen1 and also iTunes.
By the way, I've got a few other CD albums on cdbaby.com so if you like my stuff, both Country and smoking hot live Blues, you can check them out here: http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/CarolynOwen.
I now have a website of my own, carolynowenmusic.com, with my videos, music, photos, and a selection of my original artwork, too!
From a very young age I was given strong Conservative values, and also a love of music and recording. My Dad is famed writer and radio/television announcer Bill Owen, co-author of old-time radio encyclopedia "The Big Broadcast", and host of the TV program "Discovery" and internet radio program "The Make Believe Ballroom". He is also widely known as the "King of Trivia" from ABC TV's "World News This Morning". He also has written three new books of trivia; I illustrated two of them.
Music and CDs aside, I'm thrilled to at last become a real FReeper, and I look forward to having conversations on the forums with all y'all, about politics and social issues and whatnot. Yeaay!
I'm also a HUGE fan of Sarah Palin and the Tea Party!! Since she's not running now, SARAH PALIN IN 2016!!! or better yet, DRAFT PALIN IN 2012!!! YEAH!!!!
Don't Tread On Me!!
