Vlog 8 - Song Writing



Hey ya'll. Hope you're having a wonderful day. The weather here in Franklin is starting to get a little warmer (50's), and we're on our third day of song writing. There's a million ideas we're processing through and making them into full songs. Hopefully you'll get to hear them at some point. Today has been nice because there's one of those Kuerig single cup coffee makers here in the studio and I've been going crazy on that thing. It's amazing... you press one button and presto! A hot cup of perfect coffee is sitting there for you. So cool. Also, there's a really cool old piano here and I've had a blast playing on it. Leeland's been messing around with guitar stuff when we're not writing lyrics and such.

God is so awesome! He keeps on dropping these songs and lyrics in our laps and we're so excited to see them take shape. Gotta go!

love love love

Hey brothers. Good I'm so happy to know that you are in the studio. My husband is musician and my best friends are musicians, too. I know how this moment is also important and some times difficult. I will be praying for you my dear brothers. May God bless you. You are precious. I like so much the songs. Peace of Jesus.

I don't know if you want to know what the fans think, our opinions, or suggestions...

But, as a fan, I would like to hear Matt maybe do a super cool solo somewhere (like literally, a SUPER COOL one!!), OR I really like how you guys add "la la" or "hoo hoo" parts; those are really fun.

There's my two cents (or ten, whatever it is...) But, most importantly, WRITE WHAT GOD LEADS YOU TO WRITE! I'll be praying for you guys.
