Jon Prell Answers the Question – Whatever Happened to Larry Boone?

A few days back, a guy called me and asked about a song he hadn't heard in years, which is something I get quite frequently. He said the song had to with giving candy to a stranger. I immediately remembered the song as Larry Boone's Don't Give Candy to a Stranger, which was Boone's highest charting record back in 1988.

Country Music Predictions For 2014 By Eric Cornish

With 2013 now in our rear-view mirror, it's time for me to take another crack at what the next year will hold in country music.  I don't like to brag (OK, yes I do), but my predictions for last year were pretty spot-on for the most part.  I'm very nervous about this year, because I just don't know what will happen.  Country music experienced one of the biggest shifts in history in 2013, so 2014 may be tough to call.

Pyotr (Peter) Tchaikovsky, who wrote the musical score for The Nutcracker, which along with Swan Lake, changed Ballet forever. The Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker, became one of the most recognizable and beautiful Christmas songs of all time.

Mary “Mother of Jesus” – Five Songs that Reflect Her Christmas Experience

The birth of Jesus has always been the major and only reason we celebrate Christmas in my home. I can remember as a child, playing with the nativity scene. I was always fascinated by Mary. The more I learned about her during mass, the more I felt connected to her. With the birth of each of my children, came an even deeper understanding. When I would hear songs or read literature written from her point of view, it always brought me to tears. The Blessed Virgin Mother has carried and helped me through many difficult situations in my life. I rely on her guidance every single day.

I want to share with Mary songs. I love them because they are from HER perspective. They allowed me to better understand her fear, doubt, bravery and love for her son, the son of God, and the rest of the world. May these songs fill you with peace and joy.
