Friends! Who needs some good news?!
I know that there is a lot going on in the world, and things are really heavy right now. So I hope this good news brings a smile to your face and some happy to your heart. :)
Many of you have followed Jonathan’s music journey since 2009 when I started my blog. He was only 10 years old.
You remember how he bravely sang “Amazing Grace” at my mom’s funeral, how he developed his musical talents despite his 50% hearing loss, how he lead Sunday morning worship music at age 13, how he learned to perform on stage at the Kentucky Opry and other events, how he made it on to Season 19 of The Voice at age 16, and how he moved to Nashville at ago 18 to purse his music dreams!
Well, he has reached another milestone in his music journey…
after a couple of years in the making,
On Thursday night, his publishing company, Creative Nation, hosted a “release party,” and it was so much fun! (Unfortunately, Luke is in LA and couldn’t be there with us.) :(
They had these adorable cookies made for the party! Jonathan’s first release off the EP last month was called “Young,” and the lyrics start with “Cherry Coke and Sonic ice…”
So the lady that made the cookies created the cutest Cherry Coke bottles and Sonic cups with actual read straws in them. How cool is that?!
And they were as delicious as they were adorable!
His EP is available on all music platforms. You can click HERE to stream all five songs.
Love Takes Time
Speak of the Angel
Sky without Stars
All of the songs are SO good, but “Love Takes Time” is doing the best on Apple Music right now!
It’s ranked #17 out of ALL new country songs and made it onto four big playlists last week (which is a big deal.)
And it is ranked #68 out of ALL new songs in ALL genres! Say what?!
It’s a dream come true for Jonathan and our family. His goal has never been to be rich or famous as a singer/musician. He just wants to do what he loves and hopes others love it too!
And even though he has literally been singing since he came out of my womb, haha!…to have music that he has written and put his heart and soul into now out for the public to listen to is just an amazing feeling.
Thank you for always supporting Jonathan and encouraging him along the way! We look forward to many more songs in the future!!
I pray this news put some happy in your day!
Love you bunches,
