If you truly know me, you know I cannot sit still or be quiet to save my life. So you can imagine how this whole "quarantine/social distancing" thing is going…. I miss my friends, and I miss making music with them. No virus can stop us from creating though. I asked a group of them to send me recordings of them singing this song, and well, I present "Girls put your records on"Melissa MontgomeryLaura Beth CouchLaurel SofferKailee Ann FullmerHillary WehrAnd a huge thanks to Jimmy Smith for helping me edit the sound :)So grateful for this group of people!xoxo

Schmidt also created a solo cover of “Keep Your Head Up” by Andy Grammer.
As I find myself in the midst of this pandemic, I find solace in music. I have so many questions for the near future, but right now, I’m finding peace in myself, my music, my friends, and God✨Keep your head up ❤️
