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

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.

For those of you following the progress of making my next album, I wanted to share some pictures from yesterday in the studio. We recorded at the Poole Room in Franklin Tennessee. It’s a really incredible environment for making music. These players and engineers are literally some of the best in the world. They cut 8 songs in 6 hours…and even the unmixed cuts sound amazing. I came prepared for two full days in the studio but it only took one. These guys are the unsung heroes of the music business and are certainly my heroes. They are the guys you hear on the radio but you never hear their names. My deepest gratitude to each of them, Lifeway Worship, and Producer Craig Adams for making this happen. We are planning to record my vocals and additional guitar parts in early 2015.
This week on Voices In My Head Rick talks about the Christian Calendar and why Advent is the best time for Christians to say Happy New Year. This Podcast also features Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing). Free Sheet music for this song available below and at www.RickLeeJames.com/FreeSheetMusic and you can watch the YouTube video below.
