Merry Christmas!

My friend, Travis, just released a new CD today called Ring the Bells.

Before I continue, let me clarify the word "friend." Travis is my friend. I'm not sure he really knows who I am. But he should, because I'm a nice person and I know BooMama and I love Jesus and I bought his new CD on iTunes. I'm his Facebook friend. Ok, so he has over 1800 Facebook friends. But I'm one of them. I even met him. Once. In a crowd of about 10,000, but I bet I made an impression. Wonder if he remembers me.... So I think we are friends. I'm star struck easily.


Anyhoo, my FRIEND, Travis, released his new Christmas CD today. And it is goooo-ooood.

I consider myself to be a Christmas music mega fan. I got married at Christmas. I listen to Christmas music in my car at the very first hint of cool in the air. I may or may not have played Christmas music in my car/house during months like April. Or June. If I could have a Christmas tree in my house YEAR ROUND I totally would. Love. It.

For the past several years, Point of Grace's "A Christmas Story" album has been my favorite. I have played it so many times that I wore out the CD and had to buy another one.

Trav's, (see, we are on a nickname basis here) CD trumps that one. I've listened to it TWICE today. Of course, I love the old school songs on the CD, but lawsie, "Jesus Saves" made me stand in my den with my hands up this morning. O. My.

Y'all. Go buy this CD today. You can get it in stores or download it on iTunes (my personal fave - you know, instant gratification). Buy one for friends and family. Stick some in stockings. It's that good. And it's Christmas music. And it's my friend Trav.

What more could you ask for?

You are too cute! I listened to the preview song O Holy Night on his website last week and WOW!

Wait. It TRUMPS POG's first? Hm. I can't wait to buy it once I get to my home iTunes.

I lo-o-ooove Jesus Saves. You know we sang it last year? And will be singing it this year? Miss you!!

WOW, I can't believe we have such a mutual FRIEND and never met before.

Actually I've seen your name over at LPM before.

I too downloaded it this morning, but then had to run off to work and haven't fully listened to it yet. But if what we heard in San Antonio is any indication... it's got to be GOOOD.

You should've come to see your friend at FBC Trussville this past Sunday night. So good. Except for the part where I left my camera there. I'm a winner. :-)

You guys have just about convinced me to go get it. I love Christmas music, too, and since so many people are raving about this, I think I will.

Are you feeling any better today, by the way? I saw on Twitter that you had a nasty sore throat.
