Wow, what a great week! Amy and I have been on the road since last Sunday visiting several cities and meeting really incredible people every step of the way.
Thanks to so many of you who came out to meet her, who rushed out to buy the project this week, who have been our cheerleaders, and who have prayed for our safety and endurance. We both so appreciate your support.
The response to the record has been stellar. Below are a few quotes from reviewers that you might find interesting and exciting. In addition to all the official promotion by the label, one of the most important things that can happen for this record is for it to become a “word of mouth” recommendation from music buyer to music buyer. So please spread the word…
Thanks again for all of your support. We couldn’t do it without all of you!
