Did you have a good Thanksgiving?
We traveled down to Georgia to visit Cy’s side of the family and had a special time.
But the night before Thanksgiving, Jonathan had a singing gig at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville!!!
Because of Covid, he has basically not been able to sing anywhere the whole year. He was supposed to have an album come out this year too, but that was put on hold. :(
Good news is that he is finally going in to the recording studio THIS MONTH to record about 6 songs to be released next year! YAY!!!!!
It felt sooooo good to go listening to him sing!
He was one of three songwriters that sang that night. The other two guys are two of his best buddies, Josh Kerr and Conner Smith.
Josh (in the middle) is a veteran, A-list songwriter in Nashville. He won a Grammy for writing “God Only Knows” by King and Country. He has also written many hit songs for artists like Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Florida Georgia Lines, and many, many more!
Josh also just married Taylor Dye from the hit country duo Maddie and Tae!
Conner Smith (far right) is an up and coming singer/songwriter in Nashville. He is only 20 years old and super talented. He and Jonathan became friends when Jonathan first moved to Nashville at age 18, and they have been navigating the music business together. It’s been awesome for Jonathan to have a buddy to walk through the industry together.
So for two hours on the night before Thanksgiving, I got to sit in a room full of people and hear these three talented young men sing their songs. It was amazing!!
Plus, our dearest friends, the Gustafsons came to listen to Jonathan as well, and it was a wonderful evening.
Me and Beth!
Anyway, I uploaded one of the six songs Jonathan sang that night to share with you. It’s called “Sky without Stars,” and is one of my favorites.
I hope you enjoy it!
P.S. I put up our Christmas tree on Sunday night, and yesterday we got a little snow in Nashville! It was awesome and really got me in the Christmas Spirit!
I know all of our hearts are weary from 2020, but I am choosing to end this year well with my focus on the true meaning of Christmas…Jesus. Our blessed Hope.
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
