Veeder: After miles of backroads, understanding what we're all about
Sitting next to me on my desk is my calendar. I've been obsessing over it for the last month or so, because I've just released my new album, and that means making plans for performances in communities across the state. In a life spent as a musician and a writer here, sometimes...

Veeder: From country schools to country bars, dancing endures
In the kitchen of the house I grew up in, my big sister hung a white sheet from the top of the refrigerator. She was dressed in a red dress that swung, her tap-shoe heels and bright lipstick. I had suspenders holding up my Wranglers, slicked-back hair and a painted-on mustache. Because...

Veeder: Green grass inspires the year of the garden
For a month I’ve been obsessing over my grass. I’ve been watering and gauging its level of greenness and then watering again. I’ve been dreaming of rolling out the mower or organizing a game of ladder ball or beanbag toss on the green stuff. I’ve been lying down in it to...

Veeder: Getting lost in my quickly changing hometown
Have you ever been lost in your hometown? If the town you grew up in was like mine — one Main Street drag, no stoplights within 50 miles, three bars all in a row between a car dealership on one end and a café on the other — I’m sure you were able to keep pretty good tabs on...

Veeder: Stepping stone job fosters lifetime of friendship
It was the type of summer I hope we’ve all had in our lives. The one that stands between one life and another, full of long days, short nights and the sort of temporary things you grab onto knowing that, in a few months, everything changes. I was 22, newly engaged, one year out...

Veeder: At Farm and Fleet, I’m a woman who can do anything
One of the most worthless things on the planet are rubber boots with holes in both. I discovered that I own a pair when I got my 4-wheeler stuck in mud halfway up its tires last week. So I need a new pair of rubber boots, which gives me a good excuse to go to the Farm and Fleet...

Veeder: Medora concert a return to where it all started
I stood under a yellow and white tent along the boarded walkway of that town we all know nestled between the tall, rugged buttes of the Badlands and along the muddy river in western North Dakota. I had just started learning to play guitar, plucking away at “Amarillo by Morning”...
