You may be wondering how or why we would make a CD. Read on to learn more about our adventures in Midland.
A few years ago Chad started to feel like he needed a little more creativity in his life. He’s always loved writing and recording music, so he decided he would challenge himself to write and record a new song every week in 2013. So, he started. He had just gotten a banjo, and since he was having fun playing around with that, a lot of the songs had a bluegrass and country feel to them. He made it through week eight in 2013 before he decided he really didn’t have time to write a song every week and record it in our garage. And, that was the end of that.
Fast forward a few months. We sang at a funeral. And, there just happened to be an incredibly generous oil man from Midland in the audience who just happened to have recently built an amazing recording studio. And, he invited us to come out and record the song we sang at the funeral. And, while you’re at it, he said, why don’t you record eight or ten other songs?
Well, Chad just happened to have eight brand new songs that he had written last year. Can you believe that? I mean, really.
If you want to know the short version of the really, really long story, Chad has been in recording studios before. In another life, he was in a band in Nashville, (the Luxury Liners) trying to make it big. We had so much fun living in Nashville, but that didn’t last too long before he decided to go to law school. After practicing law for several years, he felt like God was calling him to ministry, and he became the worship leader at a church in Texarkana. Five years later, we landed in MudRock Studios. So, my rock star, turned lawyer, turned worship leader, turned pastor husband finally came back to a recording studio a good fifteen years later.
And God has been in it all. Following Him can really be fun.
