That makes sense. 8) I like Texas; I have family there. I was joking a bit.

You may not be too far off with that thinking; There is a huge growing movement here(Texas Nationalist Movement) that is gaining mojo to secede from the Union and several of our state senators & Attorney General have ties to the movement. The current Attorney General Greg Abbott should have a successful run to be the next governor; he is even more popular here than Rick Perry, and Ken Paxton is inline to be the next Attorney General. Both of them have shown in some capacity to acknowledge and say the movement has viability, but on how far it will ever go no one seems to know.

What is everyone's favorites on The Christmas Project? I really like the first half of the album, but seem to skip a couple of the middle songs. "What Child Of This" is really great! John does not get enough kudos for his vocals on the ballads.

It's a well done, cross generational, album.

I am sorry. If I were doing that song for Jesus, it would be a 3 minute Neil Peart meets Buddy Rich meets Mike Mangini solo fest. Go big for Jesus or go home. :)

I agree; I believe this is an album that we will be able to listen to every year and think this was just produced this year.

I really like the album. Wasn't really sure what to expect, but I believe John and team did a great job with it. It was very traditional, but had some flare without taking away from the originals. That's not an easy task when it comes to Christmas tunes, but I think He pulled it off.

Sue, do you know if the CDs went out yet? I only ask because I'm giving one to an out of town friend and don't want to set up a meet until I have the CD on me. I know you guys are working hard and I'm definitely not rushing, just wondering. Thanks!
