Jonathan’s Recording Songs in Nashville!

Hey friends! 

I wanted to pop in and tell you some fun stuff we have going on!

But before I do, I want to say that I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July holiday. :)

We spent it in Georgia with my in-laws and had an amazing time!  I hope you got to catch some of my instastories (on the Instagram app) to see where we were staying.  

The BIG news today is about Jonathan!!

FIRST, my baby turned 18 years old today!!! 

Guys, I am dying over here!  How did this happen?!  This boy has been a treasure to us all from his very first breath, and Lord willing, I cannot wait to see all that God is going to do through him!

Speaking of amazing things…

We are headed up to Nashville as I type for Jonathan to record his first songs!  Over the past year and a half, we have unofficially been working with Michael Blanton (Amy Grant’s former manager when she first got started) and David McCollum.  They have providing Jonathan great writing opportunities with some pretty big song writers in Nashville.

One of the songwriters, Brandon Hood, (who has written songs for Rascal Flatts, Sam Hunt, Jana Kramer, LOCASH, Jerrod Niemann, and more,) has been writing songs in Nashville for many years but is now starting to produce artists.  He has met with Jonathan on several occasions and wants to produce some songs for him.  

Jonathan and Brandon hit it off really well, and he is super excited to be working with him!

So we are headed to Nashville tonight, and to celebrate Jonathan’s birthday, we are going to the GRAND OLE OPRY!!!

 I have ALWAYS wanted to go to the Opry, and it is going to be so much fun to be there with my whole family.  Josh Turner is performing tonight, and we cannot wait to hear him.  

Tomorrow, Jonathan will be doing some pre-production work with Brandon at Warner Studios, and then he will be recording his songs on Friday and Saturday. 


Very soon, you will be able to purchase or download some of Jonathan’s music!!! YAY!!

He’s has been waiting for this moment ever since he was on The Voice, so I am so excited for him. 

And I can’t wait to share his music with you!

Please say a prayer that all goes well!

And be sure to watch my “Insta-stories” on Instagram over the next few days to see what we are up to in Nash-Vegas! :)

Have a blessed day, friends!

  2. How exciting! Prayers coming your way!!! Can’t wait to see what God has planned for Jonathan…

  3. Prayers have been going up! I cannot wait to be able to buy some of Jonathan’s music. God has his hands on Jonathan and all of your entire family! May God bless all of your family!

  4. How exciting for Jonathan and your whole family!! It will be wonderful to hear his new music. Congratulatiibs Jonathan and Happy 18th Birthday!!

  5. Ephesians 5:19
    Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your to the Lord.

    We shall be praying for your first born to put the music out there that draws folks to our precious Lord!

    I have be following you before your mom pasted away, it was after my mother passed that I found your lovely blog and I have been blessed to have included you and your family in my prayers. I live in the S.F. Bay Area and we have no shortage of beauty but a big shortage of people who love the Lord, there are some but not enough to vote in godly leaders.
    I just wanted to let you know That you have “family” out here!

  6. How absolutely thrilling for everyone!! Wish Jonathan a very Happy Birthday from Isabel and I. We are praying that God will bless you with safe travels and bless Jonathan’s music for the glory of his kingdom! Much love from Texas!

  7. OMG! OMG! OMG!! What a wonderful wonderful story!!! Such a deserving young man!!! Can’t wait to hear the new stuff!!

  8. Happy Birthday Jonathan! And congratulations on the recording opportunities in Nashville. I too, can’t wait to purchase his music. Seeing Josh Turner tonight at the Oprah will be fantastic. Maybe y’all will be able to meet Josh! I pray that as Jonathan becomes famous, he will always keep his love for our Lord in the fore front and let his faith influence every aspect of his life. Some of my favorite country singers that are strong Christian women are now wearing clothes on stage that are rather provocative, which can send the wrong message to other women and young girls. While I still like their music, I don’t enjoy seeing them as much as I used too.

  9. Happy Birthday Jonathan!!! Congratulations to you and to your amazing family! I have been in the background reading what has been going on and fighting the urge to join these great fans. I am praying for Jonathan and his career and to all in this family that is always amazing me. The Good Lord is really blessing all of you and I pray that you continue to receive many more blessings. All my love to the family.

  10. Happy Birthday to Jonathon. Glad the show and his natural talent brought him this amazing opportunity! Have fun!

  11. Wow, I am so excited!! I watched Jonathan on The Voice and thought he was very talented. I also have enjoyed the videos along the way in your blog. For him to have overcome the obstacles he had, and the result to be an amazing talent, is truly a gift from God. I can’t wait to hear his songs! Safe journey and prayers for you all. Butterfly Hugs!

  12. So happy for Jonathan and your family. Happy travels and Happy B’day to him. God has blessed you all. :) Wish you’d share about your trip etc. on the blog for those of us who don’t have instagram.

  13. I started following your blog thru your sweet sisters blog. It is so great to follow great Christian people. I wish the very best to you and your Son all this week end. Enjoy and May God bring you lots of his graces. B

  14. That just gave me chills reading this. This is wonderful and amazing and seeing how God is working and using all of this. Congratulations to Jonathan and I have him on my calendar to pray for each day. Enjoy all of it!

  15. Soooo amazing! Happy birthday to Jonathan!! My heart swells just thinking about how proud your momma would be of you all.

  16. What an exciting time in all of your lives, but especially Jonathan’s. It is going to be fun to see the many doors that the Lord opens for him. Blessings abundant in the days ahead!
