  2. It looks like none of my friends are coming.
    So I will buy my VIP ticket and attend. Once the worship starts my focus will be on the performance. That’s the beauty of these events. JOY FLOWS STRAIGHT TO MY SOUL.

  3. Lurker, your video made me think of the fires in CA. Watching people dig through the ashes. My daughter in northern CA can smell smoke, and my son in southern CA can smell smoke. Loss of life, loss of homes.. so tragic, once again. There are no words for the heartache many have suffered this year. ♥


  4. Hi all! I’m back from my South Carolina trip and I have goodies that I will be posting 🙂

    Good to see that TC is staying steady on Billboard and Mediabase charts. Danny did allude to the fact that this single isn’t being embraced as easily as a Christian song….


  5. My home was flooded as a child. And although my neighborhood wasn’t flooded, I also lived through the great flood of 1993, when a big chunk of the Midwest was a vast, inland sea. (Among other things, the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers merged at a place where they do not ordinarily meet.) Transportation was horribly affected, with major highways (and/or entrance/exit ramps) under water. And the smell! Ugh!

    So yeah, Lurker’s video brings back memories . . .

  7. Cindy3, it’s absolutely chilling what is happening in California, with the wildfires consuming residential areas and moving so fast some people have not been able to get out alive. The whole State of California is in my thoughts and prayers.


  8. Thank you, Ellen. My husband and I have traveled up to Napa and the surrounding areas being lost to the fires. Beautiful.. My daughter was driving home from work last evening and she said you could see haze in front of all the cars. She works in the San Jose area. The smoke is drifting that far. So many are missing. I can only imagine the fear. We’ve only had to evacuate once, but I remember that feeling. Some people only had moments to leave. It’s hard to find the words. When I see “silly” stuff in the news, it makes me mad. We need to focus on the people going through such heartache and loss. The fire in southern California should be contained on Saturday. I pray and hope for the northern fires to calm and be put out, too. ♥


  9. Whether it is fires, flooding or catastrophic storms it all is scary/depressing. My husband has a cousin that had to vacate her home it CA. It was not burned, but there is no power and water. So much disruption and loss…. I hope all our West Coast fans are safe.


  10. I know this is a Danny thread, but I don’t think he would mind us discussing the tragedies affecting Americans around the country. And he’d want us to do what we can to help. Plus, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all the disasters and whatnot. But Danny is there to distract and entertain us, and remind us that this too shall pass . . .


  11. It’s easy to move from one tragedy to another, but it isn’t so easy for survivors to pick up the pieces of their lives (not to mention the lives that have been lost). So I’ll keep in my thoughts and prayers those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate; the mass shooting in Las Vegas; and the western wildfires, especially Oregon (because I live here), and California (because people are losing their lives as well as their homes). Also want to shine a spotlight on Puerto Rico, where relief and recovery efforts are hampered by the logistics of bringing in supplies by ship and plane, given its disconnection from the U.S. mainland.

    And, of course, if we go beyond the U.S., the Caribbean is pretty battered by hurricanes, Mexico has had multiple earthquakes, and I am sure there are other disasters farther afield. So maybe the best thing to do is just look around at who may need help in our vicinity . . . Or focus on the neediest among us . . . Okay, I admit I don’t have a clue . . .


  12. I agree, Ellen.

    I wish the best for your husband’s cousin, Jan.

    Fires along with all disasters leave scars. Driving to my son’s home we passed the first Canyon fire. Now, we will see the remains of this fire. There are scars on our mountains. Scars from earthquakes, flooding. But with time, scars fade. With hope emerges new growth. But, for lives lost, scars will remain forever. ♥

    Glad Natalie Grant’s surgery went well.

    Have a beautiful day, everyone…


  13. Hi everyone, just getting back from some travels and starting to catch up

    Glad TC is hanging in there. When was this comment, Jan? “Danny did allude to the fact that this single isn’t being embraced as easily as a Christian song….”


  14. RE Two Story Road ~

    Umm, Admin2, considering that country music rarely plays female voices anymore (although usually they are better about female voices in groups, like LBT), I’m not surprised. I’m slightly encouraged by the fact that the song is being reported by a country blog like The Boot. I don’t remember if that happened with their previous single, “Arson.” I thought “Arson” was a better song, but I suppose it may have been viewed as derivative of “Blown Away” (Carrie Underwood) or “Independence Day” (Martina McBride). Honestly, I liked what Two Story Road did on Danny’s third cruise the best. I feel like they are chasing fads, and I wish they’d just stay true to themselves. Country radio right now is not hospitable to those who are not young and male, with a current (country hiphop or otherwise) sound.


  15. I wish TSR great luck on this newest release. I’m not gravitating towards their new music, but I hope they find their niche and start to see increasing success in country music. Very cool that Hunter Hayes co-produced the song. Hunter hasn’t been active recently on radio charts, though, has he?


  16. I like TRS but not this song.
    Jamie has a one-of-a-kind, exquisite voice. This music does not show off the talent she has.
