"I'm so incredibly inspired after attending Canadian Country Music Week in Saskatoon. I went by myself, which I was really nervous about at first, but I ended up having the best time. The CCMA family is so kind, encouraging, and supportive - I'm so happy to be a part of it!! My heart is so full. I'm thankful to have spent time with old friends and thankful to have made so many new friends. I can't wait to see everyone again soon! I tried to attend every seminar including my favourite ones, "Mental Health and the Music Industry" and "Women in the Music Industry", and watched every performance that I possibly could - my favourite event was "In the Round: Crossing Borders" which featured some of the top country songwriters telling the stories behind their hit songs and performing them, I explored Saskatoon, and I was fortunate to perform in the "Diamonds in the Rough" Showcase. I learned so much and am motivated more than ever to be a better songwriter, entertainer, singer, musician, speaker, businesswoman, and person. Thank you Canadian Country Music Association. Also, thank you Canaan Country Festival - the prize money that I won from the Canaan Country Horizon Artist Contest was the reason I was able to attend. " - Elsie Morden

1ST ANNUAL COUNTRY MUSIC BENEFIT CONCERTS
Every person has the potential to offer something great to their community and to the world, which is why it’s so important to not let bullying and the stigma surrounding mental illness prevent them from making a positive contribution.
The 1st Annual Country Music Benefit Concerts for No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society are happening on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the Wolfville Farmers' Market in Wolfville, Nova Scotia at 7:00 pm and in Winnipeg, Manitoba at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre on June 8th at 7:00 pm! The concerts are a fantastic opportunity for artists, businesses, corporations, and all community members to come together and make a difference.
Using personal stories and music, "No Time for That" Tour, presented by No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society (registered Canadian charity founded by Elsie Morden) provides powerful presentations dedicated to youth empowerment, mental health awareness, and bullying prevention.
So far, Elsie Morden and “No Time for That” Tour have visited 500 schools across Canada. There is still no cost charged to schools, as we do not want costs to be a barrier for any student to see this powerful presentation. All proceeds from this benefit concert will ensure that the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society’s “No Time for That” Tour can continue to visit Canadian schools free of charge.
The unique and intimate evening of celebration will highlight the importance of what the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society does and showcase the amazing and overwhelming response that the charity has received so far. Award winning songwriters from each province will provide the night’s entertainment, including country artist Elsie Morden, the charity’s founder.
There will be appetizers, a silent auction, a live auction, raffle prizes, a purely Canadian music trivia contest by voice impressionist/musician Kenny Byrka and many other fabulous fundraising opportunities.
We are currently seeking special sponsors to be a part of these events. We would like to personally invite you to make a difference and help the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society continue to change the lives of Canadian youth.
Thank you for your attention to this very important cause.
Tickets available to the general public soon!

"Music is so powerful and it has the amazing ability to heal. I think that's definitely why I turned to music and songwriting. Songwriting is very therapeutic for me.

Music saved my life and I hope that my music can do the same for others. Thank you SOCAN for all that you do for songwriters like myself." - Elsie Morden

EASIER SAID THAN DONE MUSIC VIDEO
The official music video for Easier Said Than Done by Elsie Morden.
"I always used to be so concerned with what people thought of me and I was so afraid to be myself. Most of the time I didn’t tell anyone how I felt because I didn’t want to be rejected, in any way. This video demonstrates that insecurity that I dealt with growing up. I have now learned that those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. So don’t hold back your thoughts, feelings, or emotions because you might never get the chance to say them. Life is short, you never know when it might be yours, or someone’s last day, so don’t hesitate to live your life to the fullest and love wholeheartedly.
Texting and driving, or any sort of distracted driving for that matter is SO dangerous. People need to stop. They are putting their life and other lives at risk, and I’ve heard about so many people that have been killed or severely hurt in accidents involving texting recently. Some of them are people that I know or knew. This is not okay. Don’t text and drive, and don’t drive under the influence.
I really want people to feel something when they watch this video." - Elsie Morden
