After disbanding in 1979, Connie pursued a solo career as a songwriter and studio vocalist, appearing on numerous radio ads and in the classic Blue Bell Ice Cream TV commercial, "Texas Musicians". Her comedic vocal impersonations of well-known recording artists were made popular on the nationally syndicated Q-Zoo in the Morning radio network. She has served on the Board for the Texas Chapter of The Recording Academy (GRAMMYS). She teaches songwriting for the GRAMMY Career Day and the Kerrville Folk Festival. She is the founder and workshop coordinator for the Houston Chapter of Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). She teams up with Craig Calvert, Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America) to record and tour as WHEATFIELD. Connie released a ten-song CD, "Go Deep", in January 2008, produced by Jack Saunders. In 2009, she was awarded “Singer/Songwriter of the Year”, by the Academy of Texas Music, the first woman to receive the honor. A songwriter and publishing affiliate with BMI, Connie is currently splitting her time between Texas and Nashville, co-writing for various projects.
