June Update

Mom had her last reconstructive surgery two days ago, nothing major, just finishing everything up. She is recovering and doing very well. We are so happy to be on the other side of this thing, it's hard to believe it has almost been a year (July 2nd was the day we all found out). It's been a tough road, but I know for a fact it has made everyone in this family stronger than ever. We all really appreciate every-single-one of you that prayed for us and sent us countless letters and e-mails.

Now that we're all done with this mess we can look ahead, we have the new album coming out and I just got off the phone with Mom, she just gave me permission to release my three favorite songs from the new album. This will be the first place where we have released official titles from this record.

First off, I think my favorite song from the album is Born to Climb. This song, along with EVERY other song on the album, describes a specific part of the past year. The song features all three vocalists and has a blend that you wouldn't believe, it is in the same vein as Over and Over.

My second favorite song on this album, Sun Will Shine Again. Written by Jim Brady of the Booth Brothers. He told us when he first wrote this song he could only think of us. It has come out sounding awesome! I really love this tune, the melody is great and the music is rockin'!

Finally, Love Remains. This song was written by Hillary Lindsey (Jesus Take the Wheel). It has a cool little Beatles feel to it. For you musicians, the verses progress from a 1, 5m, 4, 4m so that should give you a feel of the tune. That video I posted a while back... the solo came from Love Remains.

All in all I think this album will really be enjoyed by our fans. There are 13 tracks in all, and I am happy with all of them.

Take Care,

P.s. The story behind the Q&A... Mom has her answers and Morgan's answers on her computer, since we all just went on vacation we haven't had 30 sec. together for me to get them from her. I promise they will be up as soon as I get a chance. They were all great questions that I had fun answering.

Yup... I Love BTTF, And Had Some Extra Cash Lying Around

If I were forced to name a favorite move, one that I could watch over and over until the end of time... It'd probably have to be Back To The Future. I don't know if it has anything to do with the fact that it was on TV in the delivery room while I was being born, or if it's just that great of a flick, but that trilogy NEVER gets old to me.

 I was perusing the inter-webs and found a site that sells nothing but BTTF memorabilia. Once this beauty caught my eye, I knew it had to go in my collection of movie goodies. My geek shrine, if you will, contains things such as my Dark Knight bobbleheads, my Heroes action figures, my Dexter bobbleheads, Office bobbleheads, my Dark Knight script and other things of that nature. Now my shrine will have the Gray's Sports Almanac (with transparent blue receipt).  Now I just need my flux capacitor to be built into my amp, and I will be set.

I'm sooo cool.
