I just wanted to put up some photos of the recording sessions we just did in Nashville. I’m headed back down there next week to do the vocals, but we did the band sessions on Monday and Tuesday, and I’m so happy with them! These guys were amazing, and added so much to the songs. I’m not sure when I’ve had more fun with music!
The only problem was when I realized I had lost a diamond out of my engagement ring – definitely was not something I was hoping to deal with. Fortunately not the center stone, just a small one from the side. After crawling all over my hotel room on Monday night, I went in on Tuesday and was looking in the studio, and the guys were so sweet, and all helped me look too, but we didn’t find it. I really have no idea when I lost it, so it’s not surprising.
Also, I got to meet Peder Eide, which was fun. He also works with Paul Marino who’s producing my album, and we ended up splitting the tracking session. As soon as they finished my tracks, they started on Peder’s new Christmas album. It was great to meet him – we work with several of the same people, and I’ve been hearing a lot about him.
I really can’t wait to let you all hear the new songs – I know God is going to use them, and I’m so happy with how they are coming out!
