5 Years.

February 18th, 2007

February 18th, 2012

You know how sometimes on a certain day you wonder…what am I going to be doing 5 years from now? Well…we had that moment last week. We realized that on February 18th, 2007 we played our very first show with Kelly. We were in Florida at the Daytona 500…no big deal….just 250,000 thousand people were there. Flash forward 5 years and we were in Orlando, FL performing with Kelly at Universal Studios–one of the stops on the Stronger Tour.

It’s crazy that we have been working together for 5 years!!!! Wowza! Even more rewarding than just working together has been the friendship that we’ve made with Kelly and the other band/crew members. Serisously. We have all laughed together, cried together, learned songs together…we are family. And for that we are so blessed & thankful.

We cannot say enough good things about what an amazing experience this has been. All of the people that we’ve met, the friends we’ve made, the insane memories we’ve captured in our hearts…it truly has been amazing 🙂 We have learned SO much & are still learning.

Fun to look back over the past 5 years.


Happy Work-a-Versary Kelly!

    Congrats again on 5 years working with Kelly and her whole crew! Happy “Work-a-versary”!

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, you were a great addition to the team 5 years ago, and 5 years later, you are valued members of the crew! I still remember reading the announcement that these two girls, “jillandkate”, would be doing back-up for Kelly, and possibly opening for her in shows. I had no idea who you girls were then, but I’m sure glad I found out! I couldn’t imagine the KC crew today with you two being a part of it, and I couldn’t imagine not knowing your talent, voices, music, this blog, Word on the 3rd, Tweet Back Tuesday, Song on the 17th… (you catching my drift? lol). It’s been great to not only see you perform with Kelly, but also as just jillandkate, and to see how you have grown in 5 years!

    Also, you gals said it, but yes, you are not just part of a band/crew, you are part of a FAMILY – an amazing, talented, crazy one to boot – that you love, support, laugh with, cry with, make memories with, and do all the things you would do with family. That’s a pretty special dynamic, and not something you find often in a job or in coworkers. So I congratulate you also on having job that you love, with people that you love – what a blessing, for sure, and rewarding too! 🙂

    I know I don’t speak for myself when I say I hope we see you around for another 5 years…and more!

    Oh, I had hoped for a blog about your Work-a-versary, and what a sweet one this is! I’m so pleased y’all joined KC & Co. and continue to be part of the family. I believe you two are the best backup singers that Kelly could ask for and the friendship you share with her
    (and the rest of the group) is wonderful. It’s been and is a pleasure getting to know you goodhearted and talented girls as people and musicians (both as band members and a duo). Thanks and congratulations on your 5 years together and may there be many, many more! JKK for the win! Hmm…so where do you think you’ll be on February 18, 2017?

      Have fun in Atlanta today. I’m excited to see y’all perform at The Fox tonight!

  11. Becky Says:

    Well done ladies!! Sooooo AwesOme!! Cannot be happier for the 3 of you, that you guys managed to find one another in this crazy life! What a rollercoaster it must be! 🙂
    Proud to be a fan, and so cool to read/see/hear new blogs, songs, photos, catch-phrases, etc, that make up the whole JKK world! 🙂

    Such a great blog…I have to say I’ve only followed the Boss Lady since you guys have been on board, so I can’t even imagine what it would be like without you both! And thank you for sharing so many of your amazing experiences with us. Here’s to many more years of music, fun and adventure. 🙂
