She returned to her hometown where her family has deep roots. She married and took time off needed to raise her children, while being active in local groups -- and not just as the performer they could always count on. After her kids finished college, Dottsy signed with Heart of Texas Records and in 2010 released a CD album entitled "Meet Me in Texas". She has been performing on a circuit of mostly small towns in Texas, usually touring with other artists from the label.
Dottsy's favorite venue is the Texas Theatre in Seguin, an 80-year-old one-time movie house. She helped the Seguin Conservation Society raise funds to restore the small movie palace, making it into a beautiful space for the performing arts, with modern equipment and wonderful acoustics.
