*Special thanks goes to my Ed for:
a) suggesting I record a Christmas album (I admit I was not excited about doing this, but NOW I am so excited
about it and grateful I did it!)
b) engineering and playing on every
c) being one of the best guitarists I have ever had the
priveledge of working with.
Ed managed to take two of the tracks I
was very unhappy with, re-work the style and turn them in to my favorite tracks. Silver Bells and Have Yourself a Merry
Little Christmas. Simply beautiful guitar sound and tone.
Special thanks also goes to Chad Rueffer and Chris Winston for their willingness to take
part in performing on the CD. Plus, now I can drop their names every time I talk about my CD!
Thanks to Joey Lomas for mixing
and mastering my songs and working his magic. I couldn't be more pleased with the sound of this record. As always,
he made me sound so great.
Also, I'd like to thank my parents, Becky and Gary Haire for saying yes to singing a song
with me, and for coming over and having fun and being silly while we recorded. We were able to just sit in my living
room and sing in a very laid back style. I will treasure this track (White Christmas) for years to come.
AND, If you listen closely at the beginning and the very end, you will hear
our little furr buddy, 8Ball. Yep, we just had to make sure the dog was in on White Christmas, too!
Lastly, to those of you who
have purchased this CD, I am truly grateful. Know that you are the reason I continue to sing and without you this could
not be possible. You help make my dream come true week after week.
So, from my family to yours, we wish
you a very merry little Christmas, a safe and LOVE filled holiday season spent with friends and family in love and laughter.
Nothing is more important than sharing time with those you love all year long.
