Contemporary Christian #music of #WaitingHill @JacobsWellRex

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Last week, Jacob’s Well Records started following me on Twitter. They are a Christian recording studio in the music capital. Yeah, another interesting follower from Nashville, Tennessee. Thanks for the follow #JacobsWellRex!!

We’re a brand new type of record label – one which places emphasis on the integrity of the music as well as the character of those under our umbrella. Our goal is to inject amazing (and amazingly) positive music into the culture. We’re seeking out artists/groups who wish to build up rather than destroy…people who truly care about the youth of this nation/world.

Right now in the feature seat at JWR, this band described as, the 90s rock of Matchbox 20, the 21st century Switchfoot, add the Needtobreathe and call us in the morning.

Okay, put your hands together and boogie for Jesus with the sound of Waiting Hill!

I know many who like the message, but not Christian music. The truth is you just gotta share the positive vibes and Good News found in this genre sometimes to uplift the down and out or simply to reaffirm what you already believe.

I like the way Waiting Hill guitarist, Chris Davis, says it, “we want people to know that no matter what happens in this crazy life, everything will be alright.”

Lead singer, Mark Chambers, explains, “We understand that no matter how perfect things may seem on the outside, we all have questions and personal struggles on the inside.  As a band, we strive for our lyrics to go past the painting of a perfect life and fall on the ears of the artists behind those paintings to encourage them to ‘keep on looking for the light.”

A special request: DH didn’t get an extension on his job. Last Friday was his last day. Jobs in the electrical engineering (wiring design…TVA type work) field in our area is tight. I’d like to ask you to pray for God to lead the way for him to find another perfect opportunity in town, but we’ll go where ever He wants us. I (we) surely appreciate your prayers!

That’s a wrap for today. Thanks for dancing with me.  Before you hop off, did you catch my post, Mr. Bojangles #BOTB showdown? If not, it’s not too late to cast your vote, here!

Let’s keep the party going. It’s time to link up and join the fun with XmasDolly!

Have a tunetastic day!

The Angels Knew #music & #BOTB results

It’s Christmas time, kittens & dawgs! For the entire month of December XmasDolly, and her elves…JAmericanSpice, Stacy Uncorked, Everyday Life, & little ole me are having a jingling good time spreading the cheer with non-stop Christmas music.

I decided to go with a theme within a theme this Christmas season. Last week, we listened to O Little Town of Bethlehem. Incidentally, it should be no surprise to announce Sarah McLachlan won the that #BOTB installment. Oops lost my thought process there for a second. We know about Bethlehem, how about the heavenly host? Did you know before man was aware of the good news that The Angels Knew long ago the story that would come to pass on that cold December night? Listen…

Hometown, USA songs

I grew up in McDowell county in southern West Virginia. This is home of the Rocket Boys from Homer Hickam’s memoirs portrayed in the 1999 motion picture October Sky.

 

Are you ready to boogie? Lace up your blue suede shoes. It’s time to dance. This week’s theme is “Hometown, USA” Tell us where you are from and post your hometown bands, artists, or songs.

I have been away from home for 35 years. Needless to say, I do not know what local musicians are getting their groove on, but here are few artists/songwriters I grew up with who are still doing what they love!

 

To learn more about Clinton, click here.

Tony Vance was in DH’s graduating class, just like Clinton. You may remember me telling you Tony sang at our wedding. He has a singing style very similar to David Gates. Here he is singing solo.

 

 

A couple of years back, I shared that Tony plays with the contemporary Christian rock group The 5 Man Jesus Band, if not take a listen to these boys jamming for the Lord!

Show some love, Facebook Like The 5 Man Jesus Band!

There are other musical talents from back in the day, but these two are the only ones I know who are keeping the music alive. I would love to hear from friends telling me what’s going on with who!

Here’s an interesting tidbit for ya! Did you know, according to Wikipedia Christian pop artist/songwriter Michael W. Smith and Country music singer Brad Paisley are from the wild, wonderful state of West Virginia? Not me! Isn’t that cool?

One of my all-time favorite songs about wild, wonderful West Virginia is from a Rocky Mountain high folks artist. Come on sing along with me….

Before I go, I wanted to say, although I didn’t grow up in Knoxville it’s very much my new hometown after 35 years. That being said, allow me to introduce to you local talent Jason Terry.

 

 

Did you have a good time on the dance floor? I did. Why not show some blog love? Invite your friends to join the 4M crew now. There’s always room for one more!

On behalf of the lovely Dancing Queen,  Marie and her Solid Gold dancers ~ Callie, Stacy, Michelle and I thank you for joining us for another week of Monday’s Music Moves Me.
