Alone At The Drive-In

Imagine if you will an old drive-in movie theater in the middle of the country with all of the lights turned out and everyone gone home. Dark, deserted and spooky; the signs of a classic horror movie. This was exactly where I found myself at 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning. My faithful sidekick Lady sat in [Read More…]

Batman Begins!

I saw Batman Begins last night after church. I want to say I’ve been waiting for this film for years but really, since the Burton flicks didn’t quite get there, I’ll go ahead and say most of my life (check out the picture for proof – it was my annual birthday cake featuring the dynamic [Read More…]

Not As Strong As We Think We Are

This song has been going through my mind for a little while so I thought I’d share it. It was at my first ever GMA in 1996 when Rich Mullins performed at a late night concert (it was also the first time I saw Third Day). This picture is a souvenir of the night and a [Read More…]

All Things New

Last night, I had a great opportunity to meet my good buddy Greg Lareveitzear and his two kids, Andrew and SaraJane, for Steven Curtis Chapman’s “All Things New” concert at HiFi Buys Amphitheater in Atlanta. It was a great time! We arrived at the venue and went first of all to a meet and greet [Read More…]

Amazing Grace

I saw a great concert last night at Tennessee Temple University featuring Sarah Groves, Bebo Norman and Fernando Ortega. All three of them make beautiful music and it was a nice fit to put them all together in concert. None of them are really rock acts but more laid back and acoustic. So the concert [Read More…]

GMA Week 2005 – Wednesday Wrap-Up D(ove) Day

As usual, D-Day was pretty slow for most everyone. Since the Doves are like the prom or something, everyone cuts out of Nashville around noon and artists are hardly anywhere to be seen. I did have an early interview with rock group Pillar after I left the Word New Music Seminar (where I heard from [Read More…]

Gospel Music Week 2005 – Tuesday Recap

I have a few minutes before I have to get ready to roll out of here but I wanted to get this update posted. Tuesday was the longest day so far for me. I got up early and went through interview after interview: Third Day, Casting Crowns, Ginny Owens, Billy Gillman, Carried Away, Derek Webb, [Read More…]

Gospel Music Week 2005- Monday

Today was another good day of GMA. The nice thing is I have learned how to be productive with interviews and I have also learned how to say no. So I didn’t have as many today, but I did get to spend some good time with Ashley Cleveland, Sarah Kelly, Karl Messner (Apologetix), Mark Stuart [Read More…]

The Heart Of The Artists – Amy Grant & Nicole Nordeman

Today was a good day for interviews. I spoke to Nichole Nordeman this morning and Amy Grant this afternoon. Both spoke about their upcoming projects that release in May. Amy’s is finished and Nichole’s is almost there. When I was a teenager, Amy’s Unguarded was the first Christian tape I ever bought. My stereo was [Read More…]
