www.gofundme.com/hymns to help us reach our goal.

I’m so blessed, with a few days left to give before Thanksgiving (my self-imposed deadline) we have only $300 left to raise to meet the gofundme goal.

The album doesn’t release until March 17th, but it goes to press next week. This means that donors at certain levels should have their copy of the record by Christmas. This means that you can pre-order the digital album for yourself and give the physical copy away as a gift depending on your reward level.

The goal is within reach, $300 in 3 days. Donate today at www.gofundme.com/hymns

See Reward Levels Below:

Pledge $5 or more (Thank You)

My heartfelt thanks for your support of my new album. No amount is too small and every dollar will help tremendously!

We’ll email you 3 songs from the new album as a digital download before it’s available in stores.

Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God and What Does He Want From Us? is the new book written by Andrew Greer (http://www.andrew-greer.com) and Ginny Owens (http://ginnyowens.com). Ginny and Andrew are both my guests on the latest episode of Voice In My Head, the Rick Lee James Podcast. Together we talk about the relational aspects of God, Christmas music, New EP’s TV tapings, songwriting and even an Alaskan Cruise that Ginny and Andrew will be a part of in 2016.

I also make a final plea to pre-order my new CD “Hymns, Prayers’ and Invitations” which is due to release on March 17th, 2016 (St. Patrick’s Day). This new album features a song that Andrew Greer and I wrote together called ‘The Invitation’.

Ginny and Andrew are both wonderful people and interesting guests so sit back, stick in an earbud, and listen to the latest episode of Voices In My Head, the official Rick Lee James Podcast.

Want To Hear A Track From My New CD?

If you haven’t heard yet, my new album is recorded and mixed, promo photos have been taken, publishing contracts have been executed, and I am currently in talks with media promoters and graphic designers.

With that being said we still are quite a bit short financially and could really use your help to complete the album. I still have to pay for mastering, printing the discs, distribution fees, art design, and promotion. This puts me at least $1000 short at this point.

The record is being released on March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day) but my plan is to have it mastered, pressed, and mailed out to donors before Christmas. With your help I know this can be accomplished. If you could once again help me spread the word about our gofundme page that would be a great help.

Also, several,of you have told me that you are planning on contributing but just haven’t yet. I would encourage you to do it now if you are planning to, then you can get a copy of the album well before the rest of the world.

Just to sweeten the pot a bit more, to all new donors who give $10 or more between now and Thanksgiving, I will immediately send you a track from the new record.

I’ve listened to the unmastered mixes from start to finish about 6 times now and I still Cant believe how great it sounds.Craig Adams did an amazing job of producing, singing BGV’s and assembling some of the best musicians and engineers that Nashville (the world really) have to offer. I’m a blessed man to have such care given to my songs.

Help me spread the word and give if you can.Wishing you all a great week.

Well said Brian. I appreciate your heart in this matter.

Here is how the critics are responding to Christmas Worship Vol. 2:

Christmas Worship Vol. 2 is not just a Christmas record. Rather, it’s the sine qua non as far as Christmas worship is concerned.” – Hallels.com

“To sum up, these 12 songs, masterpieces, and works of art that Paul Baloche has recorded, with his friends who have sung with him or co-written with him, are truly breathed from the Almighty.” – 365 Days of Inspiring Media

Christmas Worship Vol. 2 is an ideal package that puts a fresh spin on well-known holiday tunes.” – CCM Magazine

“I was quite captivated by the arrangements, so much so, that as I listened, I seemed to forget it was a Christmas worship album and not just a worship album I was listening to… I encourage all of you to go buy the album!” – The Church Collective
