During the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, two pressure cooker bombs exploded at 2:49 p.m. EDT , killing 3 people and injuring 264. Once again the American people were asking the question, where is God in the midst of this. On Sunday night April 21st at Calvary Church of the Nazarene in Lexington Kentucky, Matthew Cole, Chad Cook, and Rick Lee James led a discussion based on the question, Where is God when evil happens? A recording of that discussion is presented to you this week’s episode of Voices In My Head.
On this week’s Podcast, Rick’s talks about why St. Patrick is important not only for Christianity, but also why he is a huge reason for the existence of civilization in the Western world. He also shares a new song that was co-written by Rick lee James and Eddie Kirkland based on st. Patrick’s famous prayer.
On this week’s Podcast, Rick’s son Alexander Grayson briefly joins him. Pulling from 9 weeks of experience as a dad, Rick talks about “How To Be A Parent”. Plus Rick shares a new song that he wrote for his son, “Love Drawn Near (Song For My Son)“.
This week on Voices In My Head I am talking about Infant Baptism and why we are having our son baptized this weekend. While this week is kind of a short podcast I think there is a lot of food for thought. I rely heavily on the book of common prayer for this one so for all you theology hounds, check this one out.
Not many people can say that they have been involved in the careers of people as diverse as Bill Gaither, Rich Mullins, Michael W. Smith, Scotty McCreary, Alabama, and Barbara Streisand, but Randy Cox is not most people and has done just that. With 35 years of experience in developing songwriters and songs, he has a wealth of wisdom to share. It’s my pleasure to welcome publisher Randy Cox to Voices In My Head this week.
My guest this week on Voices In My Head is Nashville Singer and Songwriter Stacy Lantz. Stacy is one of the best kept secrets in Nashville. With a voice as piercing & powerful as her predecessors, Lantz pulls influence from such greats as Patty Griffin, Eva Cassidy, & Bonnie Raitt. She covers the human experience through a lens of hope, the inevitability of change, and the occasional well-timed brush of quirkiness. She also has one of the most unique and awesome voices this Podcast host has ever heard. Find out more about her at StacyLantz.com.
I also do a little improvisational Pickin’ and Grinnin’ on my acoustic guitar to start out today’s episode. It’s a great show today folks, but don’t take my word for it, listen to it right now.
It’s the first show of 2013 and this episode is loaded with great stuff. My guest today is Nick Flora, a one man Rock and Roll show. He’s an incredible singer, songwriter, Podcaster(Who Writes This Stuff), and just a really cool guy. Working with some of the top musicians in the business, Nick is carving a name for himself on the Nashville music scene. On this episode you will hear some of his incredible music, get to know Nick more, and find out how to help make his next album a reality by going to Kickstarter.com and making a donation.
Also, I tell you about how my New Year’s Eve Concert went, the birth of my son Alexander, and this really cool video of one of my songs that was performed live using Sand Art.
